In this week's edition, we've got some membrane rearrangement from the always heady Desert Hearts crew, a true dutch festival anthem, subterranean heat from Roska's Kicks & Snares label, and a bit of carefree ass-droppery from Bristol boy Will Clarke.
Jamie George - "In 2 Minds" (Jodo Kast Remix) [Roska Kicks & Snares]
Half of the UK underground came together on "In 2 Minds," the latest Jamie George release on Roska's Kicks & Snares label. Named after a Star Wars character, Jodo Kast takes on the remix. Bassheads may know him better as dubstep slanger J.Kenzo. Hopefully the end of Roska's Rinse.fm show means he'll have more time to unearth deeper heaters like this one.
Michael Rosa - "Sound Engineer" (Butane Remix) [Desert Hearts Records]
Typical headfuckery from the Desert Hearts camp as US underground house and techno veteran Butane takes on newcomer Michael Rosa's "Sound Engineer." Close your eyes and it's like you're wading waist deep in a Desert Hearts dance party, making out with a girl who looks like a mermaid and trying to figure out which way is up. We can't confirm it, but there may or may not be some Fear and Loathing samples in here.

Olivier Weiter - "One Tribe Anthem"
You know you've made it when you're writing anthems for festivals. Thankfully, Dutchman Olivier Weiter's anthem for One Tribe, ID&T's upcoming Southern California debut, is a slightly deeper affair than your usual recap video soundtrack. The immersive, moody tech-house tune should get a proper rinsing next month and dancefloors will be better for it.
"With this track I wanted to capture a hypnotic but uplifting vibe with rolling tribal drums," says Weiter. "A deep, intimate travel within yourself, to celebrate unity with other tribe members." Sounds trippy.
Will Clarke - "Spandex" [Defected]
This cheeky little booty-house number from Bristol's own Dirtybird expat, Will Clarke, is so hot you could throw it on the pavement, and not just have a dance party in the street, but an actual fried egg, at you feet. After tearing across the world on the Dirtybird tour, Clarke's back on Defected, with some vocal dirty talk from Rhea. This one truly bumps, and by that we means it's all about that um, ASS.
