The Beatport Box 35

Welcome back to our series with Beatport known as The Beatport Box, where we bring you the best of Beatport exclusives on a weekly basis. This week, J Diesel makes a name for Las Vegas techno, Pierce Fulton's Kuaga brings along a slew of up-and-coming talent for the remix package, jungle terror reigns again with Funky Craig and Rawtek, and more.

Deep/Tech | J Diesel - Beauty In The Dark [Parquet]
From the brash lights of the Las Vegas strip and the main rooms of casino super clubs, a new sound is being born in Sin City. J Diesel, recently signed to Solee's esteemed Parquet imprint, is one purveyor of this melodic musical experience that's as expansive as the desert night sky itself. Dark, hypnotic and brooding, Beauty In The Dark is the perfect introduction to his handcrafted melancholic moods aimed squarely at the late-night dancefloor. Get it here.
Deep/Tech | Basement Jaxx - Rock This Road [Atlantic Jaxx]
Dance music legends Basement Jaxx get a reboot from some of the finest names in four-to-the-floor with this jackin' remix package that includes re-ups from two of modern-day house's finest. Packed with proper tech swing from Polish super-duo Catz 'n Dogz and a subdued tribal remix from Ninetoes, this is one EP suited for forward-thinking dancefloors. Rock it here.
House/Big Room/Electro | Pierce Fulton - Kuaga (Remixes) [Cr2]
Remixing one of the biggest tracks of 2014 is no small task. Considering the massive festival success of Pierce Fulton's Kuaga, it's a pleasant change the label didn't call on all their biggest names to rework the track, instead handing it to some serious up-and-coming talent. A driving EDM rework from Sevag, subtle house swing from Yotto, and a crackin' future house re-hash from rising duo Odd Job give this remix EP a refreshing and unexpected twist. Grab it here.
Jungle Terror | Funky Craig & Rawtek - Shaka Zulu (Original Mix) [Rimbu]
Wiwek's Rimbu label is the go-to location for the best in jungle terror sounds, and never has that been more evident than with the release of Funky Craig and Rawtek's Shaka Zulu. Packed with three distinct drops, each better than the last, this one may leave you breathless by the end. Pick it up here.
Trance | David Gravell - Kaiju (Original Mix) [Armada Captivating]
When interviewed following the DJ Mag Top 100 poll results this year, Armin van Buuren stated that David Gravell is the producer everyone should have an eye on in the coming year, so we best listen up. With Kaiju, David Gravell continues Armada Captivating's string of hit releases with a hard-hitting, triplet-timed track that leaves complete destruction in its wake. Purchase here.

Follow Andrew Rayel Into The Darkness

Armind veteran Andrew Rayel certainly knows how to kick out an epic trance record, and his latest track Followed By Darkness is another fine example of his own unique take on what it means to be uplifting.

The Moldovan producer has managed to carve himself a niche by writing tracks that have a certain flavor about them and Followed By Darkness epitomises this sound perfectly. It’s all about big saw riffs and atmospheric breaks, tied together by some massive energy and solid rhythms. It’s a dark yet uplifting sound that will be instantly familiar to anyone who’s been to an ASOT show anywhere on the planet, and an enormous arena is certainly where Followed By Darkness will really be able to work its magic.

Even if you can't experience it live, grab your copy of Followed By Darkness now and bring some of that Rayel-branded euphoria into your own home.

Maya Jane Coles Remixes The Acid’s ‘Ghost’

The UK's Maya Jane Coles is first to reveal her remix of Ghost, the latest from electronic trio The Acid.

Having spent the last few years releasing a handful of EPs and albums as well as smashing remix duties for The XX, Little Dragon, and Bonobo to name a few, Maya Jane Coles has firmly established herself as a superstar in the deep house/techno scene. In Coles' expert hands, Ghost is transformed into a proper house tune; she heightens the song's aural energy and accentuates the atmospheric vocals with thumping drums and a subtle minimal feel.

The remainder of the Ghost remixes will be released sometime next year. Ghost is the third single taken from The Acid's debut album Liminal, released earlier this year. Check it out on iTunes.

Only 200 Pressed Available For James Blake’s ’200 Press’

Call 1-800-Dinosaur, James Blake’s new song 200 Press is about to be released. The elusive singer has said that the title is not cryptic, but is meant to inform fans that only “200 are going to be pressed up.” It will be available as a 12" and 7" double pack for those who consider themselves strict vinylphiles.

The track is yet another brooding addition to Blake’s catalog and the 1-800-Dinosaur imprint that he helmed alongside former R&S Record manager Dan Foat. 200 Press follows an old-school hip-hop style, which is not uncommon for Blake but brings in his nuanced atmospherics for a sinister finish.

Alongside the release of this track and Building It Still, Blake has also informed fans that his album is “about 70-percent done” and will possibly include a collaborative track with Kanye West.

Follow 1-800-Dinosaur's SoundCloud for more updates on James Blake's forthcoming album.
