CODE Picks of the Week: Katy B, Gorgon City, Acharné and More
This week the CODE crew look at some of its favorite dance tracks that have started 2014 on the right note.
Katy B, “Crying For No Reason” (MORRI$ remix) [Sony]
MORRI$ Breaks up the dance-pop party of the original for a surprisingly epic jam, unabashedly featuring Katy B’s vocal chops.
Gorgon City featuring Live, “No More” [Virgin UK]
As a preview of their forthcoming debut, this sensuous electro jam recalls ‘90s R&B and house but it’s the break two-thirds in that really pushed it over the edge.
Acharné, “Warm Crisco” [Seppuku]
Sorry, teenage bedroom producers, this is the kind of techno wonder only produced by someone who knows the glory of a proper club’s subwoofer.
Tatiana Owens featuring DJ Ayres, “Beautiful People” (Treasure Fingers remix) [T&A Records]
Stripping this classic house covers of its garage origins, Treasure Fingers takes it to the house, laying Owens’ wail for an afterhours lights-out party.
Audien, “Elysium” [Spinnin]
American progressivist blends multiple genres, showcasing his talent as a producer on this refreshing big room track.
George FitzGerald, “Aura” [Double Six]
Deep and twisted, FitzGerald wraps warmly minor-key melodies around a techy tune expressly designed for dancing.
