Dualism denotes a state of two parts.

The term 'dualism' was originally coined to denote co-eternal binary opposition, a meaning that is preserved in metaphysical and philosophical duality discourse but has been diluted in general or common usages.

Dualism can refer to moral dualism, (e.g. the conflict between good and evil), mind-body or mind-matter dualism (e.g. Cartesian Dualism), physical dualism (e.g. the Chinese Yin and Yang) or house music dualism (e.g making and releasing several opposing mixes of one track idea in the same release-package).

Further, dualism refers to mediums with properties that can be associated with the mechanics of two different phenomena. Because these two phenomena's mechanics are mutually exclusive, both are needed in order to describe the possible behaviors. All matter, for example, has wave-particle duality.

Four deep, rather old school-feeling Sticky-tracks to drop May 31! Expect some heavy claps, merciless synth stabs and dope voice cuts.

Soon in all digital stores!

A-Trak & Dillon Francis - Money Makin

If Sesame Street ever got a stab at doing a Hype William:ish video, it would probably turn out something like this. The the tune is good to, but you already knew that when you read "A-Trak & Dillon Francis", right?

Gavin Herlihy - Positive Thing

Another week, another fantastic Get Physical release. Can't find any release date on this one. But since GP are pretty good at posting their releases on Soundcloud pretty close to the release, I'm betting pretty soon. And what more is there to say? You all probably know their knack for pumping out tripple A stuff. So this three tracker by Gavin Herlihy (plus remix) should come as no surprise.

Orphans STHLM - Coyote (Video)

Boom! Official video for the Orphans STHLM-track Coyote! Edited and made by Kasper from Orphans, as usual, a weird visual journey that perfectly suits the track.

Enjoy people!

Shiny Objects - Just Fabulos EP

Aptly titeled new tune is just that, a fabulous deep journey with three great remixes along for the ride. The Adnan Sharif remix is especially fun, adding something simple as an acoustic guitar to the soundscape. Nice pie.

New smashing release som Anabatic, by the one and only Tom Flynn. Flynn released the fantastic People Everyday EP on Hypercolour, earlier this spring. A soulfull and deep fourtracker. Johnnys Ice House is a different story altogether. Pounding raw beats with great vocals and pumping basslines. Yeah, this is good.

Released today: Orphans STHLM - Jeet Kune Do EP

Kasper and Andy, our favourite Orphans, are back with a brand fresh three track-EP! Bruce Lee on a deep house trip, need we say more? Dive in to the groove!

Buy it on iTunes!

Selected DJ-feeback and support:

Drop Out Orchestra:
"Cool, really like the experimental approach of Coyote."

"Geth Funky is the one! Nice one, really digging!"

Nick Catchdubs:
"Coyote is wild!"

Paul O'Connor:
"Jeet Kune Do is my pick here. Great chords and nice sample"

"Weird and groovy! Love it!"


When house music-scholars began to analyze the concept of "groove" in the 18th century, the complex algorithms constructed for the understanding of rhythmic patterning led them to a strange set of letters almost every time - "Orphans STHLM" was always the result of their calculation.

Nowadays, as scientists are occupied with the hard task of defining feel and intuitive sense of this very cycle in motion that emerges from carefully aligned concurrent rhythmic patterns, they pretty much all share the conception that this duo called "The Orphans" have made a sort of "time-travel of the mind".

This happening as a consequence of the two constructing a groove so pure that it actually cancels out the rules of physics, creating a time and space boomerang-effect of sorts, with the final result being a drastic effect on our conception of the holy groove. We might even claim that we would not know of this, the groove, where it not for the Orphans.

So, unequaled, unparalleled and unmatched. Bruce Lee on a deep house-production, a man hits a coyote, Chicago revisited through a delirious mantra. No, it is not Luis Buñuel turned DJ, it's the obvious genious of Andy Lindman and Kasper Nowakowski back to bless us with unique house music.

Chaos In The CBD - Dusty Sundays EP

Deep sounds all the way from New Zealand. I have to admit I kind of lost track of Chaos In The CBD. Nice to hear that they're still making awesome music. Not a bad tune one this EP, though "Girl Like You" definitely stands out with it's uptempo loungy vibes.

Orphans STHLM - Balanga 8 mix

So I have all these old mixes lying around on my computer that are from way back when me and Andy first started out doing mixtapes. We didn't do them for any particular reason, just for shits and giggles. Some of them turned out pretty good. Others not so. This one from the summer of 2008 is probably the first one with an overall theme; deep and tech house. As opposed to "anything electronic" (i.e Balanga 1-7).

Anyways, I thought it was about time I used our Mixcloud for something. So I guess I'll be putting up the better ones of the older mixes there.

La Fleur - Eavesdropper (Video)

Great video for the La Fleur-track Eavesdropper, which rightfully has been getting lot's of attention.

Great visuals, amazing track!

The concept remains - two tracks each: undeniable dance music, a good dose of forward thinking and lots of playfulness: club tracks and proper dope songs, a two-in-one.

Sweet sax samples, perfect vocal cuts, a soulful mindset, some unexpected influences and a great variety of styles - These are tracks for the coming summer! Use them around euphoria o'clock, that's when they'll suit you the best.
