[PREMIERE] MAHALO - HEAVEN (FT. CAT LEWIS)

PREMIERE, Music, Original MixEricComment

Fresh off a pair of performances at EDC, Mahalo is keeping spirits high with his celestial new piece of liquid house perfection in "Heaven". Back again with his vocal partner Cat Lewis the duo has churned out yet another piece of silky smooth house music that will melt you into your seat. Perfect Havoc is known for breaking BB faves like Tobtok and Oliver Nelson, and I heard were eager to sign Mahalo's sound. With tracks like "Current Mood", and my personal fave his hypem chart topping remix of Trace's "Honey" we knew this Mahalo thing wasn't a flash in the pan. Now we're hearing rumors of a signed single to Insomniac Records, and bookings at some major festivals, I think it's safe to say he has arrived. This epic tune features a contemplative lead synth line that is simply "Heaven." The track will be live on Spotify tomorrow (Friday June 23rd), ready to add to your favorite dance party playlist.

MAHALO - WTFYWF

Music, Original MixEricComment

Mahalo's done it again! Our Hawaiian brethren is back with another amazing track with singer Cat Lewis. "WTFYWF" accurately abbreviated haha is a dope track that rides the line between deep and future house in a way that's all his own. Liquid House is the way Mahalo's chosen to describe his sound and we think he's hit the nail on the head. Bump this tune night or day and it fits perfectly. You can add this to your fave Spotify playlist here.

MAHALO FT. CAT LEWIS - BE MY LOVE (FAMBA REMIX)

Remix, MusicEricComment

Mahalo's had a great 2016 rising up through the ranks with his new breed of what he calls liquid house. We supported the original release of "Be My Love ft. Cat Lewis" out on one of my favorite imprints No Definition - a sub label Enormous Tunes. I thought Famba did a terrific job with his re-work and is already climbing up the Beatport future chart. Cat's vocals are soo infectious so you can easily dive into this one. You can listen on Spotify too here.

[PREMIERE] MAHALO - BE MY LOVE FT. CAT LEWIS

Music, Original Mix, PREMIEREEricComment

Yeee this is some super exciting stuff right here from our boy Mahalo! We've been big supporters of this Hawaiian bred dance floor maestro, and today he's heating things up again with a sweet new single out on the up-and-coming dance label No Definition - a part of the legendary Swiss label Enormous Tunes home to some of our absolute faves like Nora En Pure, Croatia Squad, EDX and more. Teaming up again with the incredibly talented topline genius Cat Lewis, the two have struck gold in "Be My Love." Mahalo's nu-disco instrumental is full of energetic piano and synthwork with some super spicy bass expertly layered behind Cat's vibrant pop vocals. I asked Mahalo to tell me a bit about how the song came about: 

"We started a track "Be My Love" last year around December - it was originally a Nu Disco track that, for me, was never really panning out into something that I really liked in terms of the instrumental. However, I'd always be sending Cat some new WIP stuff and he'd continue to bring up "Be My Love." We eventually found a common ground with this track "gimme your love" which sort of turned into a happy balance of the two and thus this popped out. We weren't super sure what to do with it at first as it's a lot different than the departure I've taken in the last 6 months, but I showed it to My Digital Enemy when I was hanging with them one time and they were certain I had something here. We showed it to EDX and the rest was history!"

Big moves are being made in the Mahalo camp. A track of this caliber is certainly a sign that word is getting out about this up-and-coming producer. We're absolutely pumped to be able to premiere this record, and so happy to see the quick progression of this artist from relative ambiguity to upstart fame. We know there's much more to come, but for now enjoy this amazing record. You can purchase from No Definition on Beatport here.

SHAUN FRANK & DVBBS - LA LA LAND FT. DELANEY JANE (MAHALO REMIX)

Music, RemixEricComment

I've been affectionately calling Los Angeles LA LA Land for years, it's a truly unique place that has its own quirks and zany attributes that I think are just summed up too perfectly by that name. When DVBBS and Shaun Frank put out this record I was instantly hooked by the music, and I always love any track that features the lovely Delaney Jane. Mahalo has brought his deep sensibilities to reworking this hit and has done so with style combining growling bass lines, entrancing synth melodies, piano and guitar into a remix that's perfect for every house set. Mahalo's been on fire recently grinding and putting out a bunch of great music. This remix comes from the prestigious Spinnin' Label, but is also available as a free download here.  

[PREMIERE] MAHALO - CATCH MY EYE + HEARTBEAT EP

Music, Original Mix, PREMIEREEricComment

Well we've seen Mahalo making big strides in the last year, grinding putting out a lot of tracks, really finding the flavor of his nu-disco influenced house. Happy to say we've been on this train since the first stop. Today I have the pleasure of premiering Mahalo's latest "Catch My Eye." The track has bits of tropical themed influences, but with a distinctly nu-disco flare. It's repping flanging guitar, 80's-esque breaks, pads and drumming all wrapped up with the soulful vocals that totally caught our ears. "Catch My Eye" comes as the second single off of his 'Heartbeat EP' courtesy of the UK's Sleazy Deep label. The EP features another amazing single "Heartbeat" I had to throw in to this post as well, along with Rob Made's sexy remix of "Heartbeat" and Mutiny UK's Bongoloid Dub rework of "Catch My Eye." Mahalo also just released an incredible video for Heartbeat created by the mastermind VIDKID. Check out the video here and purchase on iTunes here

[PREMIERE] TRACE - HONEY (MAHALO REMIX)

Music, Remix, PREMIEREEricComment

Well here's a combination that makes us at BB happy to hear! We've been avid supporters of Mahalo and his spicy nu-disco vibes, and we've quickly jumped on the bandwagon of Trace with her heavenly voiced emotional records. With a combo like this you can't lose! Mahalo has taken the slow but beautiful "Honey" and amped it up for the dance floors, putting an almost trancelike rework to the tune. We hear rumors of lots more "Honey" remixes on the way, but for now we can enjoy this new rendition. Mahalo has also offered us a limited free download so snag that here!

MAHALO - MIDNIGHT DELIGHT

Our boy Mahalo is back with another whoop whoop techno meets nu-disco track out on the quickly becoming our favorite label LAMP. "Midnight Delight" is a super fitting name for a track like this that just grooves and pushes forward with ease, fitting for a after hours drive through the city. It features a simple funky lead melody and guitar line accented by snappy percussion and moving bass that's so mesmerizing we lose track of time. Free download baby so nab that tune right here.

Soo many feels for this track right here! Our homie Mahalo has delivered yet another great remix adding even more momentum to his 2016 rise. This is definitely going to be a staple in a bunch of sets as we slowly inch toward festival season. Mahalo has been driving his breed of sunshine deep nu disco influenced house and it's really reaching a marvelous epitome. As shown in this epic remix of The Temptations "I Wish It Would Rain," Mahalo hits the house style piano hard while accenting the vocals and building into a perfect bassy drop. This track smashes with danceable punch yet flows forward with ease like a slinky down a staircase. Ha ha got my childhood toy reference in for the day now nab that FREE DL here.
