This week I'm introducing a brand new feature to The Club, and if you're an up and coming producer looking to have your track featured on Earmilk, this is a perfect opportunity for you. From now on I'll be including a Midknight mix consisting mainly of smaller producers & unreleased and exclusive tracks from some bigger names. With the inclusion of tech house, techno and deep house over the last few weeks its left me with little room for a lot of songs from producers that I'd really like to bring to your attention. Have a listen to today's electro house mix, and check the track listing on Soundcloud for some fresh bangers from some names you may not have heard yet, such as Gior, Northend, and TJR, who opens up the mix with a fun remix that is sure to get your feet shufflin'.

Lately I've been getting a lot of feedback in the comments section (all of it is much appreciated!), and it seems like you guys want some progressive house. To be honest I've become more attracted to the heavier electro house bangers, and as you've probably noticed I've been trying to include a lot tech house, which leaves even less room for prog and trance. This week I bring to you an extra large serving of the best melody-driven progressive house, from the likes of Michael Brun, Wolfgang Gartner, and Marcus Schossow. This past week saw Tiesto drop his "Club Life Volume 2 Miami" compilation, and included in that wonderful array of Miami inspired club tracks is his remix with Hardwell for The Naked and Famous' "Young Blood", a track I've been waiting to get my hands on since I saw Hardwell play it out a few months back.
The duo that has given us one of the most epic electro house productions of 2012 so far is back again, but this time with one of the most uplifting tracks of the week, and while the synth from "Troll" remains a big part of the remix, the vocals are what drive the song for me. Qulinez is proving themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the EDM world, pumping out superb originals and remixes like this one for The Joy Formidable's "A Heavy Abacus". Make sure to also check out Jochen Miller's new track "Zodiac", featuring a lovely melody and a thunderous bass line that seem to dominate the Dutchman's sound as of late. The trance-infused progressive house that Jochen's been putting out is a fresh take on the progressive house that seems to hold up in the charts.
Tocadisco is no doubt one of my favourite producers as every thing he puts his hands on turns to absolute gold, but even for him, this is good. His latest remix for Analog People In A Digital World takes the perfect vocal and drops it into my favourite tech-electro bass of recent memory. Simple, but powerful. Also featured today is some Swanky Tunes, Sandro Silva and Chuckie, but make sure you check out the Midknight mix at the beginning of today's feature, as many of this week's electro house bangers can be exclusively heard there.
TECH HOUSE +
Ever since I first heard Kink's remix of Gingy & Bordello's "Body Acid", I have been obsessed with anything the Bulgarian producer releases. Today I've got his latest creation, a remix that he's done with Rachel Row featuring the terrific vocals of Tomas Hoffding. Its the perfect track to throw on during the early hours of the morning. Another late night jam comes to you courtesy of one of tech/deep house's biggest names, Maya Jane Coles. I've got her original mix "Not Listening" that she featured on the latest DJ Kicks compilation album.
