2014 was a definitely a huge year for dance music, with many up and coming artists being thrown into the lifestyle of hectic partying and relentless touring schedules. this also means that those who exploded onto the scene prior are no longer the new kids on the block. a few years is a long time in the life of a dj, and the first few years are often the maddest. the adana twins are a perfect example of one of these artists, having emerged onto the scene in 2012 with releases such as everyday and strange , from the off it was clear that they had everybody s undivided attention. (pulse radio) with dj names like take it easy and friso, it s probably to be presumed that german duo adana twins don t take themselves too seriously. that tongue in cheek attitude could be heard on their first productions and remixes. it s now almost almost three years later and the twins music vision is constantly developing
only one listen to the crystal clear rapture in the sound of bodhi shows the funk influenced take on dance music this young duo have to offer. olly howells and luke welsby started producing together 2 years ago but ever since they kept on capturing the right attention. therefore it is no surprise that exploited picked them up to release three uplifting, warm and modern dance tracks.
compuphonic aka maxim firket is a multifaceted producer and dj from liege, belgium, who was raised on a well-balanced diet of classical music, early electronics and industrial variants from kraftwerk to front 242, and the revolutionary soundwave that swept over from detroit, michigan. hence, maxim did not only grow up to become a skillful violoncellist, but also a producer with a unique approach, blending his various sources of inspiration into one intelligent mix of old-school electro, house and minimal stylings.
plus sized house hitmaker dj sneak has knocked together his second release for exploited records, laying down some serious swing on 3 club tracks which are destined to make dance floors sweat this summer, from ibiza to points beyond. with sneak s infamous grill and barbecue sessions in mind the night dish ep is a proper doner kebab and satay meal after a heavy night out in berlin. featuring artwork by berlin-based street artist nomad.
love or hate his infamous twitter beefs there is no denying the legendary status of this house music vanguard. with 20+ years of djing and producing under his belt, this is dj sneak s first release on exploited: a collaboration with murk (oscar g and ralph falcon). back in 2003 murk released dark beat - a track that topped the billboard dance charts and became the underground smash of the year. a few months ago we asked sneak for a remix by mail but we didn t get a reply. after 4 months he suddenly popped up in our mailbox, apologized and said that he finally had some studio time. in the end he sent through some tracks to see if we like them. the rest is history as you re probably listening to one of the tracks right now. this quirky and funky house track (a 10 minute journey) is only the tip of the ice berg though.
since richie hawtin played this track in his boiler room set on ibiza, many people have been asking about this joyce muniz collab. the track features fresh vocals by bam (formerly known as mc baby bam) from the legendary 90ies hip-hop group the jungle bothers (native tongues/zulu nation). the beat is based around a sample from kraftwerk s it s more fun to compute, and for this version we ve actually got full approval from kraftwerk (yes - guess what). so we re happy to release it now. hope you dig it too
2 years ago their hit *strange* plunged the deep house faithfuls into the limelight, gaining them support from across the boarder. adana twins were being praised by djs of all genres and receiving standing ovations in clubs. this resulted in a bunch of new remixes, massive press attention and a busy tour schedule all over the world, with an australia, america and brasil tour. aside from their hectic worldwide touring schedule, the duo remixed *schwarz dont crack* on kitsune. in march 2014, this entertaining duo will be releasing the fresh new single drive featuring khan (ex-captain comatose/playhouse/i m single) on exploited.
homework from amsterdam are back on exploited. the guys have been busy with touring and remixing the likes of duffdisco (dsiko), david keno (noir music), andre crom (off) or s.k.a.m. (gruuv). with another ep lined up on 2020 vision, this one is their follow-up ep on exploited entitled: conversation piece. since their hudson square and black jukebox release (which have both become collector items with prices going up to 99€ on discogs) the 2 dutch men have collected many new fans and followers and its pretty save to say that homework will release their first artist album on exploited in 2013
exploited serve an ace from consistent, a group of well known producers working under the cloak of anonymity. previously having released on frontroom and boe with remixes for tartelet and man recordings, consistents track >feeling high< dices vocals and disco vibes into a house heavyweight something like hot city meets soundhack, coming with certified anthem status. get involved for the polished berlin-meets-chicago modernism thatll get you sweaty as a taxi drivers neck in july. its difficult to say whether this is tech house or deep house, strictly speaking, but either way the title track bumps. it funks and, although were told it comes from berlin, its damned chicago. this is the 2nd single from consistent (remember aint no bump?) on exploited. early support by kink (rush hour), optimo (jd twitch), laurent garnier (f-com), dj t (get physical), dj hell (gigolo), erol alkan (phantasy), brodinski (turbo), feadz (ed banger), round table knights (made to play), ian pooley robert dietz (cecille), till von sein (suol), adam port (liebe*detail), lee jones (watergate), stuffa (trunkfunk), mosca (nightslugs), lazer sword (stonesthrow/numbers), pezzner (freerange/om), acidpauli (console/notwist), jamie anderson (artform)
malente & dex are back with this new ep that is filled with 4 house tracks, each with a little ethnic flavour.
habibi leads things off by conjuring some middle eastern vibes, including spoken samples of the tracks title and sitar loops.
in nightlcubs continues with a balkan vibe, featuring some upbeat horns that give the track a great bouncy feel and is reminiscent of smith n hacks remix for herbert. remixes come from exploited-chief shir khan and deadfishs finest camel.

it was fitting that brazilian-born, austria-based artist joyce muniz broke through in an era characterised by the cross-pollination and globalisation of music. initially combining the sounds and rhythms of her home country with contemporary european electronic sounds, she later morphed into a house / techno producer of the highest calibre. along the way she worked with the likes of maya jane coles and viennese legends kruder & dorfmeister and released on influential imprints like 2020 vision and shir khan’s exploited. it’s the latter which has been her main platform for releasing music since 2011 and where she now unleashes her full-length debut album, made in vienna.
shir khans exploited recordings has always stood out as a label with serious ambitions. from the consistent quality of its prolific output to its early championing of many a dance music star to its diverse array of sounds, it has felt like a highly accomplished offering even since its earliest days. now one of house musics biggest labels, it has come a long way since its humble beginnings in berlin. dancing & romancing gives a snapshot of the imprints last five years, charting its story from contender to heavyweight in stunning fashion.
