Juicy Bits is the side project of two prolific producers from the Mexican underground: Saeg and Ojos (AKA Son Of A Beat and Trancemission), both of whom have been devastating Mexican and Brazilian dance floors since 2005. After several years of developing their own individual style they joined forces in 2008 with juicy intentions. Now, after releasing music with labels such as Iboga Mexico (through which they reached the #3 position on the Beatport charts), Nuuktal Records, and Headstick Digital, they’ve prepared a full-length serving of deep and delicious progressive techno and tech house for mass consumption. Honey Dolphins, released on Drumlore, features nine new tracks with a refreshing mix of catchy hooks, fat bass lines, and killer grooves.

Written and produced by Jose A. Muñoz & DJ Saeg.

Nozem – White Noise In C Major

Nozem - White Noise In C Major

Drumlore presents White Noise In C Major, the first release from Nozem (Raoul Koning AKA Supergroover), a progressive psytrance and techno producer from the Netherlands. Since his studio is located near the Vondelpark, a former meeting place of the 1960s counterculture in the centre of Amsterdam, Raoul decided to name this project “Nozem”, which is a Dutch word for someone who doesn’t adjust to the rules of society. True to form, this boundary-breaking release features pumping techno rhythms and a sound palette heavily influenced by psychedelic trance, a powerful fusion that will rock dance floors around the world.
