Dirty Disco 520: The Resurgence of UK Garage Vibes! Kono Vidovic
Dirty Disco 513: A Post-Vacation Musical Odyssey. Kono Vidovic
In every episode i always manage to select around 23 new tracks. Coincidence? Don’t think so, it all has to do with the average time of a single song and the 2 hour music talk show i present. In this last week of July and beginning of August i curated 23 new releases which can easily be among the best electronic music in July. To get a good hold of what went down this last month you should at least listen to the latest 5 shows i recorded in July.
If you are seeking for relaxing and laid back summer music for listening this episode here with 23 summer infected tracks will suit just right. Or this one right here with 23 essential summer dance tracks, to get that summer groove going on will do fine. Because a holiday abroad is out of the question for me it seems like summer holiday creeped up in my head and made me record another sunshine infused music talk show with a few of 23 best electronic music in July. But before we look at this week’s installment, remember that every single episode is also available to you as a DJ live set (DJ Mix) without the presentation here. And in addition you can also check out the thematic essential mixes here that i create frequently for Dirty Disco members.
Now that you know about my summer affection from the last couple of weeks. And where to get / hear more quality music. Let’s look at what have found for you in this installment with some of the 23 best electronic music in July.
You probably have a good understanding off the contents in Dirty Disco 367, clearly the best way to find out is to click play and start the show with the included audio player on top of this page. But to give you more insight in the new music releases and to give the artists, music labels and publishers more credit i always list a few from the full selection below.
When you press play on the audio player, the first two opening tracks you’ll hear come from the new selector-led compilation series ‘Various Channels Vol. 1 – NYC’ on the Darker Than Wax record label.
The purpose is to combine a diversity in music and enclose a connection between the music creators together. For this very first of the series key figure ‘Marco’ chose ‘a location’ as the base that connects producers on the various artist EP.
The theme and location for this one is New York City (NYC) where Marco moved to in 2014 and established himself as a DJ, curator and promotor on radio and clubs.
The selection contains versatile sounds from various artist and i chose David Marston, Aquiles Navarro, Jitwam and Ensemble Entendu to feature as the first to tracks in this week’s installment.
The Jamaican-German singer, songwriter, producer and DJ Tender Games is a very often welcomed artist here in the Dirty Disco music shows. A simple website search on Tender Games results in all shows that include his music.
His latest Thunder EP on Midnight Snacks is a real summer treat and easily fits among my selections of best electronic music in July. Tracks like ‘Time’ and ‘Unfold’ were already exclusively played in previous shows and therefore i’m more than happy to feature his Thunder EP in the show and on the music blog.
Tender Games – Thunder EP on Midnight Snacks can best be described as filled with uptempo disco grooves, easy listening slow jams and hot funk to enjoy your poolside experience this summer.
The once started as a electronic music blog like us here and in London based ‘House of Disco’ is now much more than just music journalism. It has grown out to a respected House music record label with quality releases that i love to include in my weekly music talk shows.
The last time i featured House of Disco was not that long ago in episode 363 with the Jiraya debut EP by Shee on House Of Disco.
After welcoming Shee as a talented newcomer to the electronic music scene. HOD now welcomes a true Nu Disco legend with his ‘Still We Are EP’. Hot Toddy who also happens to be the founder of the modern electronic Disco formation ‘Crazy P’ responsible for many quality music in the beginnings of the ‘Nu Disco Era’.
In the last few months i covered a lot of music coming from theBasement Discos. Probably one of the most interesting stories to read is the Q&A i did with the House music label. Or if you are more keen to hear/have their music check out the ‘Beyond Paella’ album i discussed here.
The Spanish music label is all about quality House music, but not necessary from already established artists in the scene. Even though they include respected names in their catalogue like: the Mexican Hotmood, the from Russia Igor Gonya, and or their own Jazzman Wax from Spain. They also have a lot of room for upcoming talents.
In this case and for their latest EP they welcome the 24 year old DJ and producer from Japan AFAMoo with his first release on the label. His EP Do ‘What You Want’ is full of groovy, Jazzy ready for summer Disco tunes.
After the previous release by the Dutch producer Retromigration on GLBDOM, it’s now time for the London based producer Shaolin Cowboy to show his skills.
GLBDOM is a fast rising record label from Russia that i often play. Just like the above mentioned Spanish label they focus on quality releases and have much room for talent.
In the gathering of summer infected music the latest EP by Shaolin Cowboy does just that. His Catch Feels High EP on GLBDOM includes 5 tracks that get you in the mood for a perfect relaxing day at the beach or some laid back vibes at the poolside. The combination of Jazzy deep nostalgic lo-fi House Music will give you a beautiful summer vibe.
Here below you can find the full tracklist for Dirty Disco 367. Feel free to use this to find your favorite best electronic music in July. In addition when you prefer to use music streaming services such as Spotify you can alternatively check out my weekly updated electronic music playlist here.
The Spotify playlist is more suitable to use when you want to hear full length tracks. Or add your favorite tracks to your own library, playlist or just to like them so that Spotify learns to know your musical taste better. The downsides from the Spotify playlist is that most of the times not all tracks are always listed because i play music promo’s that aren’t simply available yet, and because i refresh the playlist every week with tracks from the current weekly episode you might just miss grab.
Therefore the given tracklist here below is always the only place to find the exact order of all the right tracks.
That’s it for this week, enjoy listening to the selected and mixed best electronic music in July in this music talk show episode. Connect with me on my socials to get in touch and letting me know that you are listening and stay safe and strong while you do so.
