Fresh Squeezed #2

 For this week's Fresh Squeezed we have a fine assortment of both down and dirty bass and soaring house and garage from Them Jeans, Doorly, The Reef, Ooakey + Alter Natives, Karma Kid, and Branchez

 Flight Facilities- Clair De Lune (Them Jeans Edit)
Them Jean's edit of "Clair De Lune" takes a beautiful melodic track and gives it just the right amount of rhythmic muscle to transform it into something danceable.

Karma Kid- It's Always

18 year old UK native Karma Kid shows impressive talent with "It's Always", a genre-defying track that can't but help lift your spirits with a lovely combination of vocal and soft synth melodies.

Doorly ft. Soraya Vivian - Rush
Doorly is back in a big way with "Rush". Starting off with a solid Chicago-style piano intro, "Rush" quickly drops into a fat, heavy bassline that sounds like Steve Angello and Laidback Luke's classic "Show me Love" on steroids, as only music from the UK could.

The Reef- Ignant
Heavy, distorted bass and various crashes and bangs give the intro of this track a faintly industrial(as in factory, not the music genre) feel. Then a group of skeletons runs in and start playing xylophones like madmen.

Branchez- Shake
House, Jazz, and Trap collide to execellent effect in Branchez's "Shake". A seductive piano melody driven by percussive claps is quickly joined by a Jazz sax to build up the energy as only the best house can. Then the airhorn sounds and the beat drops...and breaks, into a stuttering trap rhythm that makes you want to shake your tailfeather.

Dillon Francis- Westside (Alter Natives and Ookey Trap Remix)
Ooakey and Alter Natives take Dillion Francis' "Westside" and give it some much needed bounce and add enough tempo changes to keep the dancefloor alternately grinding, jumping, and juking through the entire song.
