DJ Heure parachutes in from Adelaide with four ethereal slabs of beach-coasting Oberheimer jams that sparkle and shine and drift across the sunset sea. Late summer jams that coast along a sunset beach, radiating the last glint of the sun & twinkling with gorgeous, emotion-drenched synth work.

Distant Hawaii kicks into gear for the second half of 2016 with our first Transatlantic artist joining in the shape of immense production and DJ talent, Garrett David.
Already a prominent figure in the Windy City scene via his residency at Smart Bar and working as A&R and in-house buyer at Gramaphone Records; Garrett's talents extend even further, right back to the lab, to the deep studio from whence all music grows.
His Chicago-tinged-with-Detroit blend of clean, yet warm and occasionally raw bumpin' house tracks showcase a kaleidoscope of grooves backed by heavy-seated drum programming and glacial, almost-interspatial padwork

Middle-man 'Gettin' It Done' is a solid label favourite. Less the full vocal flourishes and more the tinkered & chopped MPC underpinned by more dusty drum work that just grows in impact as the track goes on. One for late running and early morning truckin'.
Last but not least comes the R'n'B-inflicted house jam 'Bootman'. Although it takes a good couple of minutes to get going, this is pure 2016 date playlist vibes. Slip the iPhone into the restaurant system and watch the silk melt down from the walls, the tables coat in velvet and ever-lasting passion effervesce from the heaving masses. Proper nawteeee.
