MildLight : D-Unity

When a post is created about individual artists, It's for one of two reasons; Sometimes promotion is given to those who release outstanding work accompanied by the fact that they are ill-promoted, meaning some Mild-light can be shone on them to give these Artist(s) some support. Otherwise, posts are written about artists who simply make tunes that blow me out of my socks, regardless of how popular they might already be. The group I'm promoting today, D-Unity, is definitely not under-promoted. With features on compilations by three of the Top Ten DJs in the world Armin Van Buuren, Carl Cox, and Paul Van Dyk. The duo hails from Toronto and is signed onto the Beat Therapy record label. Their tracks are all over the top of the Beatport Minimal charts, and for sale almost anywhere you can purchase digital music. However, just because they have their name out there already, doesn't mean they wouldn't appreciate a few extra bucks in their pocket for all their hard work. If you like what you hear, take a stroll on over to their Myspace to see what's up and coming, their new track 'Sax me up' is straight fire! Just in case you had to pay to get your dog neutered this week or something, here's some of my favorites from the pair and a whimsical Remix to boot. Enjoy!

Animal samples with crazy delays and reverbs, Bongos, Maracas, and a huge kick. Must I say more?

Heavier, Deeper. Lots of bass. Their most popular song on beatport right now.

Minimal Monster. Long, thought-out groove and crashing breaks, the name says it all.

Mildlight :

Here at MildWild, we're dedicated to showcasing some of the up-and-coming talent we're getting excited about.. with that, I know exactly what's been floating my boat recently:

Firmly tapping into the emerging aesthetic of all things conga and jazz, certainly seems one to look out for in the future. Often collaborating with other like-minded artists such as Bastian Schuster and YNK,'s work surfaces on the warm side of tech, with inspiring source material crafted into seductively percussive tunes that swim in organic housey goodness.
Having put out exceptional releases on Weplayminimal and OFF Recordings (the New Orleans EP, which has been all over the charts over the past couple of months), this rising star is already causing a stir in both house and tech circles. With projects lined up for Get Physical, Kindisch, Micro.fon, Made To Play and Basti Grub's Höhenregler and MERKESDIR (run w/ imprints, it's not long before everyone will have a piece of this Frankfurter's work in their library. So, to kickstart the collection, here's a quick taste of the gems has to offer.. & YNK - Capetown River Boating (Original Mix)
Anthemic? That chant will stay with you long after the track has stopped playing. Nice ethnic vocal sample looped over a punchy, conga-laden beat. & Bastian Schuster - New Orleans (Original Mix)
While the jazz sample might polarise opinion, there's no doubt this will turn heads on the dancefloor. A bonafied hit. - Work That Body (Original Mix)
Delving into deeper territory here, the congas are back and spit out a hypnotic rhythm through which fragile vocals peep out intermittently. & YNK - Primitive Fire (Original Mix)
"Rising, rising..."
Whilst the sample may suggest otherwise, here we're taken on an even deeper excursion. Packed full of combative energy, loaded kick drums burst through a swirl of conga-splatter in this relentless assault on the senses.

On a side note, I'm sorry I can't really give stars for these, but I think the idea of reviewing is necessarily subjective, so to rate them could be misleading. Obviously, I think they're all good tracks otherwise I wouldn't have put them up in the first place, but I can only point out the aspects of the tunes which I find particularly inspiring - and then it's up to you to see whether or not you like them.. Hope you enjoy!

Remember, if you like what you hear, please support the artists by buying their music from Beatport, Juno or anywhere else that takes your fancy. And keep an eye out for those new releases - looks like they're gonna be fun!

EssentialSunday~Number 7_ Sub Focus

Although here at MildWild it is truly uncommon for drum & bass to be posted, I believe that this week's Essential Mix deserves a listen. The young and talented Nick Douwma a.k.a. Sub Focus brings to us a nonstop sleezy-bass filled mix that completely blew my head off. Only first being introduced to the electronic community in 2003, Sub Focus has pushed the limits of drum & bass earning him the number one spot on the UK Dance Chart with his 12" 'X-Ray/Scarecrow' in March of 2005 and another top spot in June of 2008 with past 12" 'Timewarp/Join The Dots'. He's one of the top producers for the 'king of drum & bass' Andy C's massive label RAM Records and sure doesn't disappoint with both his productions nor this explosive mix. For this week's BBC ear pounding pleasure we have none other than Sub Focus. Enjoy!

Mildlight : ARA (Agent Orange)

Barcelona's born and raised ARA is truly standout to say the least. His Tech House style is similar to the works of such great artists as Style of Eye and Format:B, with classic instrument usage showcasing trumpets, guitars, French horns and so on. Along with this Tech alias, ARA has another upbeat project in which he calls, 'Agent Orange'. ARA founded and releases on his own record label, Gotham Grooves, and has a few other tracks out with Relatives and Drakos Recordings. He's got a decent amount of releases but not so much on the promotion side, so we thought we'd help em' out.

Funk horns. Tech-House beat. No huge buildups, no huge drops, just lots of really good noise.

Spanish sounding guitars, poppy french horns. Mild yet Wild.

EssentialSunday~Number 6_ Joris Voorn

Rotterdam-based Joris Voorn has steadily been making a name for himself as both a DJ and producer over the past decade with a string of acclaimed releases on labels such as Keynote, Sino (Technasia) and Cocoon. Voorn also heads two labels of his own: Green and the ever-inspiring Rejected Music, through which he often showcases material from his other projects, including Dark Science and Rejected (with Edwin Oosterwal).
Voorn’s production style results in a kind of ethereal techno grounded by its leanings towards Detroit-style vibes, developing on authentic grooves which can carry you through to tomorrow morning.
Currently undertaking a world tour to commemorate the release of the outstanding collage of sound that is his Balance Series double mix CD, the man himself has taken time out of his busy schedule to delight us all (and especially Pete Tong..) with an enchanting two-hour long mix. Interweaving world ambient sounds, soaring techno and chunky deep house, Voorn creates a limitless soundscape that can’t fail to enthral. We hope you enjoy MildWild’s Essential Sunday No. 6!

Mildlight : M.Tahan

With mainstream Tech-House names becoming so common, it's always great to catch an explosive artist before they've reached the popularity that comes with producing great music. Brazilian based Tech-House producer M.Tahan is surely one of these producers, his brilliant Tech-House is truly out of this world. Tahan was brought to my attention while searching through Beatport, and I stumbled across his new EP out on Crunchy Music entitled, 'Elephant', and let me tell you, it really blew my load. As I listened to both of the tracks I figured I would force some promotion onto his music, (due to the fact that he has less than 7,000 views on his myspace!) Again and as always here at MildWild, It's new, it's simple, and it's quality. Check out the EP that caught my attention and definitely keep an eye out for M.Tahan in 2009. If your really feeling saucy, go buy it on Beatport.

M.Tahan - Elephant (Original Mix)
Spacey and fresh. So noisy but so clean!

M.Tahan - Fuck Fiction (Original Mix)
Less noise, more groove. Full with Jungle percussion foreign vocals and such.

Wildlight : Mat Zo

As you might of noticed by now, we here at MildWild are generally not big fans of posting Trance music. I don't know what it is... is it the fast paced beats and flurry of synths that we are afraid to embrace, or do we just love Electro, Tech, and Progressive House too much to even venture into the enigma that is Trance? I would guess that it is the latter, but either way we are definitely missing out on some quality production. Jean-Baptiste recently introduced me to a Trance artist that definitely deserves some recognition, Mat Zo, also known as DJ Matan Zohar. This 19 year old prodigy resides in London, but has recently been performing all over Europe showcasing his skill. At this young age he has already remixed big names such as Tiesto, Andy Moor, and Markus Schulz, and has released music on enormous labels like Anjunabeats and Armada. He generally produces trance, but I'll also share with you some other tunes that exhibit this artist's versatility. Keep your eyes peeled because you'll definitely be seeing Mat Zo's name much more often.

*Please note : MildWild does not regularly post Trance ; Astounding music is indeed an exception as always, and you will continue to hear what sounds superb


Mat Zo - Lucky Strike (Original Mix)
Mat Zo - Synapse Dynamics (Original Mix)
This release can turn a Trance hater into someone that at least appreciates the genre. Synapse is a bit more progressive but both of these songs contain huge basslines, beautiful synths, and pounding drums

Erphun - 2wo Butterflies (Mat Zo Remix)
Powerful Tech House remix here, although there are definitely still Trance like elements within

Tyler Michaud & Mat Zo - Stubby (Original Mix)
Fantastic Electro House tune capable of popping any party

Mildlight : Rice Twins

The Rice Twins are a Swedish Tech House duo that formed in 2005 by way of Valdemar Gezeliuz and Jesper Engström. Signed on the illustrious KOMPAKT label with monster names like Gui Boratto, Scsi-9, John Dahlback, Jonas Bering, Oxia, and Dj Koze. The Rice Twins deep, up-lifting style of House is very aurally pleasing, and nearly impossible to dislike. The list of Dj's dropping The Rice Twins tunes is worldwide and diverse with styles ranging from Minimalistic to some of the hardest Electro. This EP can change the mood of any set and makes for great mix-ins. As always here at MildWild we love to bring you quality that keeps it simple, and thats exactly what The Rice Twins represent.

EssentialSunday~Number 5_ Carl Cox

A legendary man of legendary talent is back in action after a 10 year break from the UK as one of the worlds top Djs, bringing us a remarkable Essential Mix. Starting his career in the mid-80's as a hardcore/acidhouse Dj has brought him up to today's speed by becoming the leader of Intec Records and 23rd Century Records as well as creating the celebrated Space nights in Ibiza. As one of Ibiza's most acknowledged promoters, Carl Cox is deep within the roots of the party scene not only in the small Spanish island, but all over the world playing some of the biggest shows including Love Parade, Glastonbury Festival, and most recently Ultra Music Festival in Miami. This being said, Mr. Cox is definitely worthy of MixMags title of being the best Dj for the last 25 years. This week's more than qualified electronic aficionado for the BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix is none other than Carl Cox.

A New Renaissance?

Hello everyone,

I’m Emmanuel and I’m the latest addition to the MildWild crew! So I thought for a first post, I’d introduce myself properly by showing you the sorts of things I’m finding truly inspiring right now in the brimming world of electronic music. Hopefully it’ll be a taster of what’s to come and will whet your appetite for more juicy tunes in the future...

For a while now, I’ve been hot on the trail of the kind of dubby tech and electro house being produced by the likes of Jesse Rose and Oliver $. Always fresh, always twisting through unexpected crevasses, these artists have helped bring the fun back into house music – for me at least! This is the kind of playful philosophy that Jesse and the gang have used to help shape the dynamic of his pioneering imprint, Made To Play. In these uncertain times, I’m finding myself becoming more and more attached to certain record labels as I can trust them to deliver release after release of quality, forward-thinking music. With acts such as Duke Dumont, Idiotproof, Jan Driver, and Riva Starr in their back catalogue, Made To Play is definitely one of them.

John Acquaviva, Olivier Giacomotto & Jonny Lexxs - Too Cool 4 Skool (Riva Starr Rework)
Frantic, bouncy and relentless. Riva Starr leaving his bold mark on this one

In the same way that we’re all tightening our belts nowadays, there seems to be an increasing aesthetic shift towards stripped-back productions that still deliver on punch and, most importantly, FUN. Coupled with the drive of tropically-influenced DJs and producers such as Brodinski, the search for this kind of innovative style has again led me in the direction of some lively labels, including Institubes’ fledgling little brother, Sound Pellegrino. Having already released a debut EP featuring the likes of Zombie Disco Squad, Solo, and Mowgli from London’s bristling midget tech scene, Sound Pellegrino seems to have set itself right on the crest of this particular zeitgeist. With upcoming work from French-born-yet-Argentinian-residing (?) Douster, Harvard Bass and Finnish innovators Renaissance Man on the agenda, I for one can’t wait to see where these guys will take us. It's cute, new, fresh, fun and totally exciting!

Zombie Disco Squad - Esperanto (Original Mix)
Fun-filled stonker of a house track. Sure to get you smiling as well as dancing!

At the same time, Worthy has been patiently carving out a similarly interesting vein in the US with his ever-exciting Anabatic Records. Taking on a more minimal approach, Anabatic has come to specialise in bouncy, driving compositions that never fail to enthral whilst, at the same time, proving dance-floor killers in the right hands. Again, the label-boss seems to be looking in the direction of the sort of tropical tech that’s been getting increasing attention in recent times, having just signed Momma’s Boy (a new, stripped-back upstart for Mikix The Cat). In fact, Momma’s Boy has also got an EP coming out on Sound Pellegrino in the near future and has remixed Douster’s For Weirdos Only coming out on the same label later this month. What a happy family! But anyway, here’s a track from the newest addition to Anabatic, London’s own Tom Flynn.

Tom Flynn - Spaced Out (Original Mix)
Cool, warping, spacey tech track, sure to turn some heads.

Meanwhile, progressing as ever, Tartelet and its close-knit Danish kin remain a bastion of all things fresh in the house world. Whilst they may not be the most prolific of collectives, every release is right on the money and worth every penny. Get ready for a brilliant new EP from the Copenhagen duo Kenton Slash Demon, out later this month!

Tomas Barfod & Fredski - March On Swan Lake (Original Version)
Tartelet label-bosses Fredski & Tomboy make a foray onto Get Physical for this slow-to-reveal yet uplifting piece of Tech House.

On calmer shores, Germany’s Kindisch and Diynamic labels have been kicking up a storm recently with a string of exquisite releases. Taking things into hypnotic, organic territory, I can always trust these imprints to warm my soul as well as my dancing shoes.

Stimming - Una Pena (Original Mix)
A standout track from last year on Diynamic. Step on board the organic rollercoaster ride...via some enchanting female vocals...

So that’s all for my first full contribution to the MildWild community and I hope you've liked it! (and I promise my upcoming posts won’t be so all over the place...)

And in the future? I hope to share with you the best in pure house, minimal and dubby techno. Let's bridge the gap between what's mild and what's wild..!


Remember, if anything in particular has tickled your fancy, please leave a comment and tell us what you’d like to hear more of. Don’t forget to support the artists by following their progress, going to see them live, buying their releases or downloading their tracks from your favourite digital download site. Beatport works a treat!

WildWednesday_Number13 (4-7-09)

Howdy to everyone out there, today we have some great news and we're more than excited to present it to you! Last week, we announced that we would be supplying a new addition to our 'Those Who Post' list, and as we promised, we shall deliver. In this, it is with great pleasure that I introduce to you, the most intelligent and dedicated friend I've yet made on all my endeavors into the world of House Music and Electronic compositions; Emmanuel Tamaison. With the addition of Emmanuel, we are especially excited to continue bringing you coverage of your favorite artists and also, loads of new material from artists you may not have heard of (and definitely need to). We are confident this has been a wise decision, and we hope you enjoy the clever workings we will be sharing with you over time. Stay tuned for some introduction posts from Emmanuel, you'll be just as happy to have him aboard as we are!

This week we have a man who is back again for the Essential Mix for his second time, and is packing twice the punch. Montreal's own, Tiga.

He's the lead man behind Turbo Recordings whos featured artists such as Popof, The Proxy, and his other production workings with Zombie Nation called ZZT. Tiga's most recent constructions include a 12" titled 'Mind Demension', two singles titled 'What You Need' and 'Overtime', as well as his much regarded podcast 'My Name is Tiga'.
