Here at the Enchufada headquarters we want you to always be in the loop on what our artists are up to. However, that’s not enough. There’s also a big group of people who we lovingly call our “extended family”, a talented group of musicians, producers and remixers who we met, worked and partied with along the years, and are constantly putting out quality material that we just need to share with the world. That’s why we’re starting this brand new All In The Family column, where we bring you a bunch of cool musical suggestions to keep you posted on what the guys and girls of the Enchufada universe are cooking in their studios.
Our main man in London T.Williams always manages to capture everyone’s attention whenever he drops a new track, and his brand new remix for brotherly duo Disclosure is no exception. You may remember his dancefloor expertise from Enchufada releases such as the impressively eclectic ‘Can We EP’ or the 2010 peak time bomb ‘Getting Mine’, but when he uses his serious skills to rework the Sam Smith featuring ‘Latch’, one of the biggest singles of the moment in the bass music scene, virtually anything can happen. It’s no wonder that half the internet is losing its collective mind over this one, and once you hit play on that Soundcloud widget below we’re pretty sure you will too.
Jago Pearson is the 19-year-old boy wonder Zulu, who managed to impress everyone by breaking into the scene with a couple of releases on Enchufada, Girls Music and Zoo Music, effectively proving there’s no minimum age for talented beatmaking. While his production style fuses together the unpredictable rhythmic elements of his parents’ world music CD collection and the modern bass-heavy electronic dance music – an approach that is in full display on his afro-techno leaning ‘I.N.C.L.E.H. EP’ -, his DJ sets are usually an eclectic affair where you can hear anything from hip-hop classics to the latest uk funky bangers. Case in point is his latest mixtape for the Mixpak FM series, which you can – and should – download for free right now.

Hungarian power duo Slap In The Bass impressed us so much with the bouncy rhythm of Tapa that we didn’t resist putting it in our ‘Hard Ass Compilation’ last May. Being addicted to the sounds of the global ghetto revolution, which they blend with dutch house and uk funky influences, their tracks are festive, danceable and highly addictive, as you can plainly see on their new club banger Indian Legends. They are presenting their brand new tune with this video, which is the first taste of their new ‘Indian Legends EP’, which will be out on No Brainer on November 2nd. Click play and enjoy!
London duo Mak & Pasteman is making big waves this year with a steady flow of dancefloor-ready tunes that sit nicely in the middle of energetic garage breaks and steady house beats. An example of their bare bones approach to the bass music scene is their brand new bootleg of Cassie’s amazing 2006 hit ‘Me & U’, a smooth and sultry tune they turned into a fresh 2-step club warmer. While you download the pair’s new bootleg from XLR8R, know that they’re also currently working on a remix for Buraka Som Sistema‘s hypnotizing Candonga, so you can expect to hear a lot from these two in the near future!

Moveltraxx is an awesome label from Paris who regularly put out quality bass-heavy music, including our very own Diamond Bass’ tune Sabi, which was released a few months ago. Keeping the tradition of regularly putting out compilations for free download, here’s ’Da Movelt Bucket’, the latest offering from the guys who’ve brought us cuts from artists such as DJ Tameil, Traxman or Canblaster. Check out these eleven new tracks from producers like Funkystepz, DJ Earl, Big Dope P or Ezekiel (who you may remember from a recent Branko remix we showed you), and don’t forget to download them all!
Last but not least we bring you the latest on Scottish powerhouse and Numbers kingpin Jackmaster, who just proved once again why he’s one of the most respected and celebrated DJs around with the third installment of his Tweak-a-Holic mix series, which he presents as “the soundtrack to your girlfriend’s next house party”. If that is true then congratulations, because your girl has great musical taste! Forget the rain and the cold with this sweaty hour of funk and disco gems, which you can listen to on the Soundcloud player below and download for free in exchange for your email address.
