A native of South Africa but an adopted child of London, Esa‘s style of house music is just as contagious as a nasty bout of flu.
One of his regular monikers is Esa & Mervin Granger and it’s under this alias his forthcoming track ‘Visum’ will be released on. The lead track from the ‘Anwaarding’ EP on More Music, ‘Visum’ comes packed with probing synths that sizzle throughout and make for a peak-time spine-tingling house track.
The ‘Anwaarding’ EP is out on August 25, stream the preview here
Jay Shepeard‘s second album, Seeing Sound, will come out in late October.
The album marks the 20th release on Shepheard’s label, Retrofit, and arrives 18 months on from his debut LP, Home & Garden. While that album catered to home listeners, this time he’s focusing purely on the club.
Shepheard says: “I wanted to take the extended creative process that an album offers and apply it to a two part vinyl club release—the aim; a collection of ‘go to’ club tracks to be released in one hit, simultaneously working together as a whole and functioning as stand out club tools in their own right.”
The producer has been tweaking the material for more than a year, testing the tunes out during an extended tour in 2013 and 2014. Seeing Sound will see release digitally and as two separate vinyl 12-inches—Part 1 and 2. A launch party will take place in Berlin, though full details are yet to be announced.

A recent mix from Damiano Von Erckert as he takes over for another fine selection of classic house. The ava record label owner touches on some classic house from Marshall Jefferson, 2 Young Brothers and Mood II Swing, plus some of his own unreleased tracks.
He says; “My Solid Steel mix is kind a like a ‘best of’ collection of tracks I have been playing in my DJ shows the last few months. A lot of the club music in here also hold memories and experiences I’ve made in the last couple of years, so it’s very personal for me. Some of it was inspiration for my own productions as well. The mix should get you in the right mood to go to a party or just have a good time at your place or work space, I hope you’re gonna enjoy it and don’t forget to support good music!”

A Chicago native with already a decade of DJ/producer experience behind her, Kate Simko‘s move to London represented the opportunity to develop the other side of her musical identity. While she’s versed in the rich heritage of her home city’s underground sounds, she also has a background in classical piano and jazz; inseparable from her work as an electronic producer.
Her main creative project for exploring this is the London Electronic Orchestra. Formed from the resources she’s been able to draw on at the Royal College of Music, as well as a cast of live players, they’ve already performed their first show at London’s National Gallery.
Data Transmission caught her on the phone before the show, to find out more about what she’s got planned.
We have a new mix for you recorded by Bradley Zero live from the Warm x Rhythm Section Session on 26.07.2014
When not playing to his home crowd in Peckham or sharing new music with the world through the Boiler Room, Bradley hosts a monthly flagship show, ‘Rhythm Section Radio’ on NTS Radio which boasts one of the largest audiences of the station with a worldwide following from Michigan to Melbourne and plenty in between.
Wilson records is back with a brand spanking new, special printed-screen edition celebrating label head, Fabio Monesi‘s first solo EP. The succession of the label and Fabio’s sound has been ever so apparent.
Entitled “The deeper side of London E.P”, A manifestation into something much more darker and refined, something represented crystal clear in the riveting rhythms of the A side with ‘Gotta Blaser’ & ‘Djago’. On the flip, the B side is a declaration of love, if you will, to the mother of it all, Chicago’s house music.
We can’t wait for this one to drop. Check out the preview here
