EssentialSunday~Number 15_ Friendly Fires

This weeks Essential Mixers are the three chap band dubbed none other than, Friendly Fires. Branded in the eastern county of Hertforshire, the trio considers themselves Tropical Pop/Disco House, and I'd say that's just fine. They released their self titled debut album in September of 2008 and are working on another to come sometime in 2009. Currently signed on XL Recordings, their latest singles, Kiss of Life and Skeleton Boy, are hitting some top spots on the UK chart. With their schedule booked with both live performances and Dj sets, I'd say there's nowhere to go but up for these kids. Enjoy!

Wildlight: 'Oh Shit!'

"Free Ep" are words I've been seeing a lot less often in House music, but not to fear! Our main man Wongo has gone ahead and made a few tracks completely out of this world, and completely free of charge! Dig this EP entitled 'Oh Shit!' and head on over to his Myspace for some new stuff he's working on along with a list of gig dates and such.
*These tracks weren't released for free due to quality issues or an inability to find a label to sponsor it. There both amazing and there's an awful lot of work put into both of them. If you like bouncy bassy goodness, you'll absolutely love this!

So much noise! A horn sample from Lafayette, Three or four different vocals all chopped to hell and thrown in the blender with a great bassline and voilá!

Pitch shifting basses all throughout, mixed with some crazy asian themed samples, and some ridiculous sound effects. Once again, a masterpiece.

Wildlight: Afrojack

Afrojack (Nick van de Wall) is a producer and Dj from Spijkenisse, Netherlands. He is famous for tunes like 'In Your Face' and his remix of Greg Cerrones hit track, 'Invincible'. Nick's production gets support from huge names like Laidback Luke and Fedde Le Grande, and also runs his own record label, "Wall Recordings". I recently came across his remix of Spencer & Hill, (which is amazing) and figured Id post some of his more recent tunes for you guys to check out. Enjoy!

Afrojack - Polkadots (Original Mix)
We should all wear polka dots.

On the more minimal side of House, great synth riffs, noises, and bass. White noise and such.

Catchy vocal, crazy noises, 5 out of 5.

MildLight: Leeks

Not much is known about the UK minimal technician Leeks, yet his musical productions and remixes are hitting top spots in the Beatport charts. He has recently formulated a new EP 'Drugs' just released from Carpe Diem Musica, which will definitally be tearing any speakers up! Be sure to get on this new EP, as well as the rest of his discography over at the Port, but for now, heres some tracks to ponder.

Leeks - Human (Original Mix)
Techy and original big room track.

Levan - The Roulette (Leeks Remix)
Bleep bleep.

Mildlight: Mark Knight

When it comes to making beautiful house tunes, no ones on a fresher tip then Mark Knight. Not much needs to be said about this super-producer but I'll say it anyways. Mark is constantly sitting on the top of the beatport chart, and with every release he takes Tech, Minimal, and Progressive House to a whole new level, his tracks make frequent appearances on Radio 1's Essential Mix, Mark's label, 'Toolroom Records' is possibly the most demanded House label in the game, and on top of all this, Mark and the 'Toolroom Knights' are consistently spinning records around the world. Mark Knight is the super-man of House music and if you don't already, get to know him now with these three amazing tracks.

My favorite Mark Knight track. Super fat kicks and bass, huge builds and breaks, and those white noises and bleeps we all know and love.

Hard Tech house. An older track, though still one of his best.

Awesome vocal talking about clubbing, along with a catchy synth melody and perfectly placed bleeps.
