Playlist: Jason Burns’ 10 Favorite Breaks/Broken Beat Records

Jason Burns yet again states his claim as one of the most talented producers in the game with a gorgeous, breaks-laden EP complete with remix from Mad Villains.

As a veteran DJ and producer with releases on Toolroom, Nervous Records, Anabatic, Symbols, Love&Other, and RAM Recordings, Jason Burns has a reputation for defying genre conventions. Drawing from a wide array of influences including disco, classic house, garage, R&B, soul, pop, and acid house, he has moulded a unique sound that doesn’t fit neatly into any box.

Following his Once Again EP on SOUP NYC earlier this year, Jason returns to the groundbreaking label with The Power EP, a melodic, breaks-laden two-tracker accompanied by a huge remix from fellow SOUP affiliate Mad Villains.

Clearly a fan of breas and broken beat tracks, we asked Jason to share his all-time favorite 10 with us:

Saad Ayub Pays Homage to Amsterdam Nightclub “Shelter” With Latest EP

The annual Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is upon us, and today Toronto’s Saad Ayub will be dropping his Shelter EP ahead of the hectic week of panels, meetings, events, mixers and incredible music. This four-track EP, is Saad’s ode to the conference week, with the title track dedicated to the infamous Shelter nightclub located in the basement of the A’DAM Tower.

Debuting his newfound love and productions of melodic techno, Saad’s creations are hypnotizing dance-floor worthy pieces of art, ready to take you to a higher consciousness.

‘Shelter’, the title track of the EP, is the second collaboration between Saad Ayub and Andy Teixeira; it is a melancholic piece of melodic techno with a dynamic arpeggiated climax.

‘Réveille’ is a dark, moody techno track characterized by its use of vocal chops and a room-filling stab lead.

‘Face to Face’ is a driving techno track with a progressive influence, complete with ominous floating pads, and a throbbing bassline.

‘This’ is a tribal-flavoured techno track, featuring a battery of syncopated drums and a hypnotizing vocal.

We grabbed a chat with Saad to talk about the EP and the influences behind it.
