END: the DJ's New Music Best Picks: October 2013

Note the changes: no column name and no top 10. Now we have the "best picks"- the reasons are that I didn't really want to categorise all the new tunes that come my way with only 10, although those choices will still be featured. Secondly, I wanted to emphasise the newer releases aspect; no previous month's picks will be shown on the following month- so make sure to catch up with all new music on the previous columns!

Let's get down to it- the top 10 picks first:

Sebastian Komor- 'Body Move To Body Music' | Xenomorph Productions
Seb Komor (Icon Of Coil, Komor Kommando) is among the best producers of electronic music hands down- and he's now releasing original material under his own digital label, named after his production studio. This first self-release track is a promise of the work we can expect. Amazing! Get this now on Bandcamp, Beatport, iTunes and other outlets.

Ohm- 'Car Crash' | Artoffact Records
This new project from Chris Peterson (Front Line Assembly) and Craig Huxtable (Noise Unit) is so awesome; this track is but one of many outstanding songs from their self-titled first album. Don't miss out on this one!

Alter Der Ruine- 'Horizon Slide' | Negative Gain
I've had the honour of being able to check out some new material from Alter Der Ruine to be released on their upcoming album. Each of the few I've managed to get my hands on are so fantastic, my main thought always go to "I can't wait until everyone gets to hear this new work"! 'Horizon Slide' will show the evolution of ADR. Be on the lookout for this one.

Ginger Snap5- 'Polaris' | Skyqode
After a few years of giving us single tracks and remixes that grabbed our attention, Ukraine's Ginger Snap5 finally releases his full album 'Snapped By You' on Skyqode- and it is a masterpiece. 'Polaris' is one of the amazing songs found on this new album. The vocals are deeply thoughtful and the melodies are as always so very well done. Ginger Snap5 is back and unleashed on the international circuit.

Stahlnebel & Black Selket- 'Go Ahead' | Advoxya Records
This dual act from Germany and The Netherlands have been giving the world quality music for a handful of years. Their new EP being released on Advoxya promises more of the same calibre or work; this track is a bit different production-wise. Love this.

Karybde & Scylla- 'Database' | ETT Recordings
How I love the ETT label. Each release seems to be chosen with great care and production work- and this new track from K & S- none other than the owners of the label themselves- reminds us all of that fact. This track is a piece of art for the club floors. Listen to this ASAP!

Omar Cito Perez & Ben Orsound- 'Avalancha' (Ben Orsound Instrumental Remix) | Supermarket Records
I love this Spanish label's work; great quality progressive dance music that Perez delivers. 

Diskonnekted- 'Yesteryears' (Neuroticfish mix) | Alfa Matrix
The lyrical content and vocal stylings are quite smooth, while Neuroticfish's version of this track will have everyone anticipate more of his production work! Also check out Edge Of Dawn's remix.

Love?- 'This City' (Club Mix) | Emmo.biz
The original version while short and sweet is catchy enough, yet the club mix fleshes out the work quite well for the dance floor.

Blue Sense- 'Aurora Sunrise' | Blue Sense Recordings
Blue Sense from The Netherlands never ceases to amaze me with not only the quality of his output, but the expert sounds nearly every track carries. He's been on a tear this month with new beats and this moving track is but one of them. Check out the link for more great music!

Here are some other tracks not to sleep on!

Narayana- 'Metrovision' | ETT Recordings
What's this- another ETT release on this month's top picks? As I've stated, the label is THAT good. Check out this new upcoming track that will be released for us all to enjoy soon!

Covenant- 'Ignorance and Bliss' | Metropolis Records
Another strong track from the latest "Leaving Babylon" album, this new Covenant song is very well textured and deeply moving while Simonsson's signature vocal style shines through.

Pride and Fall- 'Hollow' ([:SITD:] Remix) | Dependent Records
Two awesome projects join forces for the Dependent 2013 compilation. Another signature remix!

Tomo Hachiga- 'Soldier March' | Login Records
Login Recs continue to give us some of the best dark & minimal tech styles of music. This new track from Hachiga is masterfully done, the tones very much owning up to the title's theme. 

Rudemates- 'Mesmerized' (Doc Trashz Remix) | Trashz Recordz
The Trashz Recordz label from Italy loves giving listeners the best 'dirty' electro styles; this new Doc Trashz remix is no exception. Heavy and strong.

Interface- Stateless | Nilaihah Records
The new album release "The Perfect World" is proving to be among Interface's best work to date. Stateless is one of many songs I think many will latch onto. Don't miss the entire album!

Aengeldust- 'Dancefloor Killer' (vs. SVE) | Alfa Matrix
This upcoming track has a killer noise groove. Looking forward to see what the rest of the album will sound like.

Noir- 'A Forest' | Metropolis Records
Yet another Cure cover, this one has a great dark and relaxed feel to it. Check this one out.

And don't forget to check out last month's new music article for more new music that's still fresh to the ears. This year has seen some fantastic releases out by artists familiar and new!
