What do you need to have a special ride? Fuel, lots of fuel! And our beloved friends over at Days Of Being Wild offer us some of their magical fuel as they celebrate the 10 years of their prolific existence in the electronic music scene by releasing a terrific compilation. Franz Kirmann and Samuel Berdah have managed through all these years to establish the London based label worldwide by releasing music from artists as varied as Fairmont, Kiwi, Justin Robertson, Nhar, Offset, or Middle Sky Boom while commissioning remixes from the likes of It’s A Fine Line, Chloé, Marcus Marr or more recently Ewan Pearson, V and Fabrizio Mammarella. You can already sense the variety in the label’s taste and the kinds of music they admire and tend to release. And all this qualitative and rich diversity is reflected in the brand new “Ten Years Of Being Wild” compilation. You will love it; it’s inevitable!

Today, we’ re psyched to premiere Franz Matthews’ “All I Wanted”, which is one of our favorites. The Berlin-based, French DJ and producer weaves a serene and dreamy sound carpet. A from-the-very-first-second capturing laid-back track with an atmospheric breeze of skewed samba air, a light swing rhythm beat, ethereal vocals, airy synth riffs and a variety of melodic sounds that transfer you to an idyllic landscape where you simply forget all your worries. And that fantastic heavenly glockenspiel! It’s a beautiful trip, and so is the whole compilation! Enjoy the ride!

The “Ten Years OF Being Wild” compilation arrives on December 9th via Days Of Being Wild. Pre-order it here.

We’re pretty sure that this is the first time that you hear about Any Gram. But we know that you already love him, as we do. UK disco specialist Ray Mang is back with a new eight-track LP, called “Dis Go In Ya Pipe”, presenting his fresh alias Any Gram;an anagram of his name. That’s the first release of Ray’s pop up imprint Keeps Going. As he says, “eight nuggets lovingly re-touched, tweaked, tucked and tailored for the floor”. It’s an intercontinental genre spanning ride through the tempos. We are “dealing” with an LP of edit excellence and Ray greatly breathes new life into moldy oldies, re-editing forgotten gems and loved classics from the disco era, developing his sound constantly. Gospel disco, SA boogie, kwaito, Balearic, dub and Fleetwood Mac, all together lead into a musical discovery and a new world opens up for the listeners (this is you riders). No need to say to talk about the exceptional quality of Ray’s releases.

Today, we’re psyched to premiere the record’s powerful opener “Open Bar”, a sublime seven-minute rework of a Betty Griffin’s track. It’s disco gospel at its best, full of energy and dancy vibes. Funk tasty guitars lead the way while the “sneaky” bass tickles you non stop. Betty’s both impressive and sweet vocals add much to the track’s awesomeness. It can’t get any groovier! Close your eyes when you listen and feel yourself magically whisked away to late 80’s. Blast the track above and enjoy the ride! A house party on a platter!

Any Gram’s “Dis Go In Ya Pipe” arrives on November 19th via Keeps Going.

He’s much more than a terrific producer. He creates art full of miscellaneous emotions and his genuine music either speaks straight to your soul or takes you right to the dancefloor; or both. You all know him because he is one of the most acclaimed and versatile artist on the international music scene, and he’s one of our favourites. Dear riders, it’s Kasper Bjørke.

After a three year absence, the prolific Danish producer returns to hfn music with a majestic new double EP, entitled “Nothing Gold Can Stay”, returning to his signature leftfield danceable beats. The double EP explores both the analogue and organic side of his production work on Side-A, while Side-B reflects on sounds that he would play today, in one of his nightclub DJ sets.

Today, we’re so delighted to premiere A-Side’s second track “Seabird”, a fantastic cover version of Alessi Brothers’ 1975 classic “Seabird”. It’s a track that came about through Kasper’s friendship and musical synergy with DJ and vinyl digger Christian d’Or, who is lead crooning while Toby Ernest delivers his signature falsetto. You can sense the track’s fresh feeling, while at the same time it truly respects the delivery and the mood of the original song’s core. Kasper’s magical sound skills capture you from the very first seconds and the melody offers you a dreamy ride to the sky. The vocals are simply magnetic. “Listen lonely seabird, you’ve been away from land too long… Seabird, seabird, fly home”. Blast the track above and enjoy this heartfelt ride.

Kasper Bjørke’s double EP “Nothing Gold Can Stay” drops on 22nd November via hfn music. Pre-order it here.
