CODE Picks of the Week: Katy B, Gorgon City, Acharné and More

Katy B

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.
