Local Hero: Barrientos - Ready?
A perfectly timed Balearic monster from Barrientos. As we wave goodbye to months of miserable weather and welcome back are good old friend the sun, thoughts generally turn to the summer and those irrepressible good vibes that come with it. 'Ready?' is a gorgeously blissed-out slice of Ibizan sun, golden beaches and long nights. Released for free as part of the Vous Vous EP' on his Facebook account, this is whats going to get us through March.

Next up OOFT! offer up some seriously slick mid-tempo house for the Carry On label. Remixing South West Seven for their up coming release 'Mel's Pockets', this is a deep-grooving number which takes a hypnotic vocal sample and works it deep into the song's foundation. The result is a laid back journey through late-afternoon sun, swaying palm trees and ice cold Lemonade. Really yearning for summer today, don't know if you can tell?

Something exclusive from Worx next which caught our immediate attention. Working closely with Dersonna over the last few months this Glasgow based production duo have been putting out some truly incredible stuff. This is an unmastered version of new track 'The Hatch' which combines slamming bass with dreamy breakdowns. We're supporting this in a big way.

Last, but certainly not least is a new release from Domsko which really personifies are recent love for stylish house with a driving rhythm. Enlisting vocalist Astral T on vocals and incorporating a 90's inspired synth line the end product is sheer quality. Add remixes from Chicago house legend Johnny Fiasco, plus a searing dub version from Domsko and this is shaping up rather large.
