This Minimal House stunner is a remix of Mari Kvien Brunvoll’s ‘Everywhere You Go’ by Ricardo Villalobos . Mari is a Norwegian Jazz singer who comes from a very musical family. Her performances are inspired by the sound of pop and folk, and while on stage she uses a variety of acoustic as well as electronic instruments. So it’s only fitting that Ricardo put her wonderful voice to some very enchanting electronic beats.
It’s a bit disappointing though that there are only very limited resources with infos about Mari. At least I learned, that there still are people that use MySpace. Astonishing. But when it comes the music itself – it is “nothing less than magic”.
Genre: Experimental / Techno

DJ and producer Rosa Lux (Rosali Batzer) is one of Denmark’s more famous representatives in the electro scene, having even made a name for herself in broader Danish society due to a few appearances on danish TV programs in the last years after her first successful single. Her debut album ‘Monsters’ already came out in 2011 and she continued to be a regular among Copenhagen and Europe’s night clubs.
‘Wilderness’ is a collaboration with artists from Germany, namely Audiolith producer Rampue and electropop duo ‘I’m Not A Band‘. Together they produced a wonderfully relaxing Tech-House track that simply clings to your eardrums. It’s a testament of how well-deserved Rosa’s fame in the Copenhagen club scene really is, even when she’s only providing vocals here. For a proof of her beat-making qualities, listen to the gold-awarded ‘Min Klub Først’ feat. Alberte & Josefine Winding.
Genre: Tech-House / Deep House

Laurel doesn’t only share a childhood idol with me (Britney Spears), later on she also fell in love with Laura Marling. And if that wouldn’t already be enough to make me like her an inappropriate lot, she is also an incredible singer-songwriter. The 19-year-old girl from London released her impressive debut EP ‘To the Hills’ in April of this year.
All the while electronic remixes of her songs are making the round on the blogosphere. And although the Live City Remix gets a whole lotta’ love right now, my favorite version of Laurel’s beautiful ‘Shells’ is this deep house variant that has been retouched by Hannes Fischer. I can’t stop playing this 7 1/2 minute beauty… Except for listening to Laura Marling, of course.
Genre: Deep House

This extract from one of Hannah Wants sets that has been released in may brings together two great women of the contemporary electronic music scene. At first Hannah Wants herself. She is one of UK’s leading deep / bass house DJs hailing from Birmingham and has been around for a few years already. It is her who remixed this already modern classic from Disclosure’s album ‘Settle’, together with her congenial partner in production Chris Lorenzo.
The genre-bending singer-songwriter Jessie Ware is the second women involved in ‘Confess to me’. She is the original collaborator of Disclosure on this fabulous tune and provides the powerful vocals. Jessie was born and raised in London and is already on the verge of releasing her second full album in October of this year.
This ingenious combination of four incredibly talented artists into one powerful club-tune is definitely a keeper, that shouldn’t be missed on anyone’s house-playlist.
Genre: Deep House

I’m actually very surprised that this is my first post that involves the queen of house music herself, Maya Jane Coles. In the past years there has hardly been a way around her production and DJ skills. She has been named one of the most influential DJs in the world and is also found in the top 20 of Resident Advisor’s top DJ poll.
What is worth noting is that she does almost every small step in the production of her music herself, from the writing and mixing to the artwork on the sleeves. She is of British and Japanese decent and being born and growing up in London, she is active in producing since 2006.
This track is a deep-house tune that features Swedish artist Karin Park, who was also already featured here on Electric Women.

This has already been around for a few months but is still very worthwhile. It’s Peacetreaty‘s collaboration with everyone’s favorite Anabel Englund, that was released on Dim Mak Records. Born to a family of artists, Anabel really started to pursue a career as a singer after a spell in a Christian youth group sparked her enthusiasm and she has been part of the EDM scene for some time now.
This deep house track turns out a real banger and Anabel’s lyrics and vocals (‘If I knew what to do, I’d learn how to erase you.’) really carry the track to great lengths.

The two beautiful Australians of Ginger & The Ghost teamed up for this dub-induced house track with another brilliant duo from down under, the producer-collabo Indian Summer who already put out several well-received EPs in the last months.
Ginger & The Ghost consist of Missy and Daniel who also are visual artists while and while they are not musicians. Missy’s haunting voice carries this at first claustrophobic track, which quickly revolves itself in a more upbeat mood with the change of Missy’s timbre in the hook. The synths and the ghostly background voices leave this tune as a haunting contradictory experience, which is worth every repeat
