Southern California based DJ & Producer Ocean Roulette has been putting out some tunes on some credible labels over the last few years. Three days ago he dropped an amazing release with Insomniac’s IN / ROTATION. After being featured on the ‘Rotate’ compilation series, Ocean Roulette follows up with his sophomore release on the label.
The three track EP entitled ‘Electric Games’ is a house music lovers perfect dream. The feature track “Electric Games” is a terrific blend of synths & live instrumentation sounds combined with a classic house vibe with a 2020 twist. “Mombie” hits hard with spectacular vocals and a groovy bassline. “Understanding” is just infectious with a bassline that will have you unable to not move around.
Overall a terrific EP with all 3 songs passing the vibe. Ocean Roulette continues to grow with each new release. Be on the look out.
Last Friday, Southern California based duo Arnold & Lane dropped their freshman release on Box of Cats. The 3 track EP titled ‘Gas then Dip’ is one of their biggest releases to date. They have a very unique flavor of house & techno and have one of the prominent artists on the rise for the last couple years. They played one of our RESET after hour parties last year and absolutely crushed in. Arnold & Lane continue to push limits & boundaries with each new release. You definitely want to go out & support this release. More from Box of Cats below.
“Two lads living the dream – writing beats, playing shows and partying with fans. The lid was literally about to pop before the mighty Rona virus kicked in and changed everyone’s plans. With their own unique twist on clubby techno with original vocals, Arnold & Lane are set to have a very strong year regardless of what tricks the virus has up its nasty sleeves. Once the gates open and we’re set free upon the dancefloor, we’re willing to bet our furry paws that you’ll be seeing these guys on all kinds of festival stages across the US.
Now that we’ve buttered the duo’s bread with our sweet praises, let’s get to the music. The title track One Button is an absolute chugger, filled out with a groovy 303 while a robotic voice takes you through the paces. Gas Then Dip and Baby Baby Baby (very important to say it all 3 times) take you to the darker side of the duo’s taste. 808s, 90s vocal chops and unforgettable vocal hooks are the name of the game here.
This is Arnold & Lane’s first solo release on Box of Cats, and what a way to welcome them to the family. Enjoy Gas Then Dip EP!” – Wongo, Kyle Watson
Rotate Volume 3 is out now by In/Rotation featuring some of dope new tunes from a collection of artists. The compilation includes fresh new house tracks from the likes of Cazztek, Masteria, Fantom Freq, Hotfire, Ocean Roulette and many others.
From top to bottom this entire compilation is filled with heaters. You can be sure to know that if there was a festival season this summer, you would have been hearing these tracks play out all over the world. There isn’t many EP’s let alone compilations that I like every single track on the compilation but Rotate volume 3 takes the cake. Make sure you go out and support all these artists. You will not be disappointed.
