Tune of the week this week comes from Boston boy ‘John Barera’ and ‘Will Martin’ with their feel good house track ‘Reality’.
The track features on the ‘Panorama Bar  mix by the house goddess ‘Steffi’. Although you can buy the track via Steffi’s very own label ‘Dolly Records’ (it was out on the 20th of May).
The track is a energetic disco roller. It has clear classic dance floor influences yet it feels very modern at the same time. Perfectly placed saxophone samples overlay tribal bongo hits and a warm classic house piano loop.
Expect to hear Norman Jay spinning this at ‘Good Times’ at Notting hill Carnival to Ibiza’s DC10. Huge summer tune!
The frustrated Dj Blog recently posted an Article that Nineteen89 strongly agree’s with. It talks about the way modern DJ technology has created an offspring of truly awful djays that are filling slots in clubs all over the world.
“The number of DJs today are increasing at an alarming rate, and because they’re all fighting for a spot to play out, and to prove their [lack of] skill, they are all willing to play for a cheap as possible, or even worse, undercut other DJs to get that gig”

Tune of the week this week comes from Palace with his bootleg of the 2002 RnB anthem ‘Oops (Oh My) by Tweet ft. Missy Elliot’.
The original is from an era that Timberland ruled like a king as he seemed to produce every popular chart topping record, because of this it’s a high likelihood that some time during 2002 you were humming Tweets catchy lyrics in the shower (go on admit it!).
Lets just say out of all the vocals the young East Londoner could have sampled ‘Palace’ took a huge risk sampling such a well-known hit, as the original has remained without a doubt an untouched classic for years.
Yet he has absolutely nailed it on the head with this bootleg. Palace delivers a smooth yet dance floor friendly anthem with tight percussion that unlike a lot of records doing the rounds at the moment he has stuck to the simple (yet effective) route of not overdoing it, it’s a simply kick, clap and hat. A smooth synths underlays the vocals perfectly with a deep sub that will warm up last nights dinner nicely if you are standing in front of a good soundsystem. Guaranteed summer festival anthem.

Crypt aka Daniel Shell has been producing bass-driven, dancefloor-orientated music over the last seven years. His early production was heavily influenced by the movement of dubstep, especially from the dark 2-Step garage sound that first emerged at the now infamous FWD Nights at London club Plastic people.
Crypt saw his first release in 2010 on ‘Four40 Records’ with the “Enclosed EP”. The EP was a fusion of 2-Step garage and dubstep with unnerving vocals and deep bassline’s, which contributed to the success of the artist’s first release. Crypt has been busy in the studio experimenting in new sounds and exploring new genres since his last release in October 2011 on ‘Get Some Records’.
His forthcoming release on ‘Nineteen89 Records’ entitled ‘Feel You’ demonstrates the young-producers ability to create high-energy dancefloor music which could appeal to a wide verity of music fans and Dj’s alike as the EP has a clear blend of influences spanning from the late 90’s house era to the more recent bass-heavy techno. Crypt is without a doubt one to watch for the future.
Feel You is out on the 22nd of July – Its available both Digitally and on limited 12″ Vinyl
