Coming out of the sexy desert in Arizona comes a new song & video from my friend, DJ DLG! If you like funky and “get the fuck on the dance floor” music, then you will definitely vibe on this track.
To celebrate our 10th release Lazor Music is proud to present DLG’s latest single “Visions of Love”. After experimenting with new styles on his Evolution EP series, DJ DLG returns with that french / disco house sound he is notably known for. “Visions of Love” is surrounded by a leading epic arpreggiator followed by an enchanting breakdown. The sudden uplifting build climaxes and descends into a deep funky bass line and the captivating hook “Can’t you see what our love can be”. “Visions of Love” is not your ordinary Lazor release it is also accompanied by our first music video. The video depicts DLG’s struggling journey through the desert to chase his visions of love.
Francis has been killing it in Arizona lately with quality videos across the board, and his latest is no exception. Check it out below, and if you live in Arizona, you simply must head over to UK Thursdays and see what the fuss is all about. Mary and J-Paul do an excellent job bringing out fresh talent and giving AZ a taste of the quality bass music storming the scene.
Here is another from the Terravita show:
Wow. The new release from Tigerbeat6 is simply….great. Raoul Sinier puts together a moody and throughtful EP with 4 solid tracks. Not your typical dancefloor chum tunes here, just straight up moving, delightful and exciting music. Tigerbeat6 has always been a favorite label of mine for nearly a decade, and as always, i’m impressed with their latest offerings to the music community – its releases like this that renew my faith in the artistic community in the electronic scene. Raoul Sinier’s, The Melting Man EP, is a breath of fresh air for my ears.
Raoul Sinier has previous released music on Ad Noiseam, Planet-Mu, Coredump, Sublight, and Teams, with past collaborators including Venetian Snares, µ-Ziq, Hecq, and Vast Aire. “The Melting Man” marks his Tigerbeat6 debut. Rumor has it that the Tigerbeaters slept with the lights on and a Joker-gas grin for a week after receiving the masters.
This release is currently available, as of May 23, so be sure to pick it up – you won’t be disappointed. Check the previews below!

Although the music is not glitch, dubstep, or drum and bass, it’s good stuff, and the producer is a friend of mine out here in the valley of the sun. I present to you, DJ DLG, one more of Arizona’s top talent pushing his own unique style of “four-on-the-floor” dance music. Most recently, Dave has put out a new round of tunes on the Lazor Music imprint. Check the write up below for info and head over to beatport.com to scoop up the tunes.
“Lazor Music is proud to present another amazing release from DJ DLG titled the Evolution EP. Hot after his collaboration with Kinch on “Tie Me Lightly” the “Evolution EP” features 3 original tracks, which show both an auditory and technical progression in DLG’s unique sound.
DJ DLG has produced tracks with Erick Morillo, Laidback Luke, Dave Armstrong, Giorgio Moroder and more. His work has appeared worldwide on labels like Interscope, Universal, MOS, Hed Kandi, Subliminal, CR2, Lazor Music and many more.
The leading track “Stomp”, is a new twist on the bigroom disco sound, which DLG has been known to provide. “Stomp” is a secret weapon in DLG’s sets, which has now been unleashed to the masses.
The Second track “Higher” brings together the sounds of Electro, Progressive, and Dubstep combining a piano laden break with a huge drop for a pure peak time moment.
For the third and final track “4C1D” DLG breaks out the TB-303 for a new twist on the classic acid house sound.”
OLAV BASOSKI: DJ DLG – Stomp (instrumental mix)
DLG is someone who gets it too. This is kind of electro, but also almost disco, has a nice groove to it. It works, period. I love the vibe after the big break, the disco-y synths on top of the big analog bassline, it’s very happy and still tough!
Self proclaimed instrumentalist beatmaker, Moses Abrego, known to most as 1990, recently released his latest EP, Mixtape Edit Vol. 1. This San Jose, California producer just moved out to the deserts of Arizona and hit me up with an email regarding the new release. Downtempo style beats with scattered bits of 8bit sounds all molded together in a lovely hip-hop flavor round out this eight track EP. After a good listen, I must say this comes in just in time for the wonderful month of love and sappiness we know as February.
Did I mention this release is free? We all know how much people love free music, and if you’re in need of a good soundtrack to cuddle up to with that lady or man in your life, this will fit the mood perfectly. Head over to 1990′s bandcamp page and grab the free download. While you’re at it, send him a message and let him know how much you dig the music. I’m looking forward to hearing more from our new friend in Arizona.
Check out some samples of the EP below.
