Ramon Tapia is somethin’ else. His name reminds me of my favorite white (often blackened) fish, and his dry, buoyant, percussion-driven sound reminds me of a paradisiacal alternate universe. You’ll probably see what I mean when you check out his new EP, “Trolley / The Ride,” out now on Skint Records.
Here’s the release announcement from Skint and the streamable EP below:
Ramon Tapia is on the up. With releases on huge labels such as Craft, Great Stuff, Strictly Rhythm and 100% Pure in the last few years, he is turning himself into one of the leading new breed of house producers. We at Skint, are pleased to announce that we have our first release with him which is certain to get the party started as it aims directly at the dance floor.
‘Trolley / The Ride’ are 2 tech infused house tunes layered with percussion and deep driving baselines that would work too well for the peak time hours. Ramon’s productions skills are on fire at the moment that showcase in the support gained from big names over the Miami period.
For one minute and forty-six seconds, it’s all up in the air. Have Jack Beats abandoned that grimy bass sound that we see visualized in the dripping green slime of their logo?
Alas, they have not. They are more devoted to it than ever, fusing it with some catchy yet tolerable vocals from Donae’o so that even Swedish House Mafia fans will succumb to its craze-inducing, bouncy fidget wobbles!
“You Should Know” will be out May 13th on Columbia Records.

After a chart topping year in 2011, where Oliver $’s ‘Doin’ Ya Thang’ on Jesse Rose’s ‘Play It Down’ label was the No.1 charted track on Beatport in 2011 (plus it was the No.1 charted track of all time on Resident Advisor), Gene & Oliver approached loungin’ recordings as the home for their brand new Chubby Dubz album project.
Chubby Dubz background and origins combine all manors of influences, as Oliver is native to Germany and Gene to the US. With this chemistry comes a fusion of minds that produces great house music with enough musical soul to have real longevity whilst still keeping the dance floors moving in the best clubs throughout the world. With releases on labels such as Om Records, Appeal Music and Undertones their unique style of house is enjoying great success throughout the world as all the major heads in house music are revelling in deep house currently. The result of this is that the music of Chubby Dubz is being widely championed by everyone from Ricardo Vilalobos, Baby Ford to DJ Rolando and Doc Martin, to name a few.
The Album Sampler #1 is as the name suggests, the first teaser release of 4, from the self-titled Chubby Dubz album due out on loungin’ later this year. All the 12”s will feature full length versions of the album tracks crafted especially for the dancefloor, plus remixes by key players from the loungin’ fold and even some very special guests!
(Dear Soundcloud: This new HTML5 player is dope. Sincerely, Oh My!)
With the resurgence of deep house spreading across the globe, this release will be sure to hit the mark combining productions that one could be fooled into thinking came from the likes of Ron Trent or Chez Damier. To complete the package is an Art Bleek remix of the title track; Direct Experience, delivering a late night groover that will be sure to find favor with the headz.
Hijack is doing it right as usual. Today he brings us a brand new beat under the awesome Busta Rhymes sample he used previously in a collaboration with Santiago & Bushido. He titles the track “Pudding,” a potential obfuscation of the words in the sample (puttin’ it = pudding it), and uses a photo of Bill Cosby eating some kind of Jell-O pudding product as the artwork for the song. What more could we ask for?
A special treat are the pleasantly panned grinding gremlin sounds that enter at both 1:47 and 3:50.
