There’s not too much information available on the A Taste Of Struggle project. But who needs background info if the music itself is just simply amazing? The debut of producers Amos & Truenoys appears on London’s first rate Deep Medi Musik imprint and features classy remixes by Skream and Commodo and further is flanked by a great video.

Play the track right here to get into that midsummer mindstate and hopefully the weather’s gonna do its deed…
Mighty Mouse and Van She are both established producers who have a number of fantastic releases under their respective belts. 2010 they met at a mutual gig at Social Club in Paris. Good for them, you think? Good for you, we say!

These two are definitely an act to watch for 2013, so check out the phenomenal video of “Darkness” and grab one of the free downloads right here![YouTube zB9MC8wvRGE]
Robotalco is one of those myths in modern day music: We don’t know the person behind it – all we can guess is that someone is from Italy and really knows their stuff. Check out the track “X Lines” right here and make sure to watch the video as well, as both deliver just that balearic summer vibe that we’ve been yearning for so long. Spectacular![YouTube zKAGF2y8Kts]
Detroit synth music at it’s best! It seems rather reasonable, that the type of music that made the soundtrack of the movie “Drive” so successful was also done rather properly in that very motor city in Michigan. Android Automatic is a Detroit-based synth music act and one can’t help but to phantasize about burning some rubber in a Chevrolet whilst listening to his productions. So, unsurprisingly, the song that we’re presenting right here is also named after a car model. So adjust your seat and start your journey!
Alessandro Russo aka SLOK is an Italian house music enthusiast based in Paris.

Make sure to check out the magnificient “The Underground” right here and if you’re in Paris, try to stop by at one of his club nights. We sure would!

Jacob Wiltshire is a 19-year-old producer from from Winchester, Britain.

Stream the title track right here to get an idea what these kids today are capable of… Superb!
Kate Boy is a four-piece band from Stockholm, Sweden. And boy, these guys are on to something! They’ve taken us by storm ever since we first heard of them. Be it the voice of singer Kate Akhurst, who is originally from Australia and now resides in Stockholm, or the band’s phenomenal arrangements and productions – we’re prediciting them a bright bright future! Make sure to say hello on their facebook page and check out the remix of Chicago’s own Houses of their debut single “Northern Lights”.
Germany’s own Kris Menace surely isn’t a stranger in the realms of electronic music, considering that he’s released numerous classy tracks on several labels over the years. Now it shouldn’t be too hard to guess what the outcome of him collaborating with an absolute legend of Chicago house would sound like… Quite a no-brainer, that that would be something house heads around the globe could have faith in, no? Yup, his latest single “Trusting me” features the one and only Robert Owens on vocals, who has significantly helped to shape the triumphal march of (t)his genre with his former group Fingers Inc and so many other projects and tracks. Calling Robert the voice of house music isn’t too much of an overstatement, if you ask us! The single comes with a load of top notch remixes (Le Crayon, Penner & Muder, Good Guy Mikesh & Filbuert etc.) and an incredible video shot by award winning Danish director Meeto Worre Kronborg Grevsen from We Make Colors (check it right here!). Trust us – you wouldn’t want to miss out on this one!
