This weekend So-Cal electronic music fans will embark on a retreat to hotel paradise in Palm Springs for the bi-annual Splash House festival. This event will take place in the outdoor pool areas of three notorious resorts: The Renaissance, The Riviera, and The Saguaro. Although we’ll be paying our visit to all of these stages over the weekend, we are most excited to visit The Saguaro, Splash House’s House Haven for the weekend. Below you’ll find five tracks that will get you pumped for some of the house music over the weekend.
1. LUCES – ADIOS
Before checking out the Splash House lineup we had no idea who Luces was, but it didn’t take long to find out that this is a new collaborative project from Amtrac and Plastic Plates. Both artists are masterminds of melodic house music, with Amtrac being more on the deep minimal side and Plastic Plates more disco. Together they create some of the most dreamiest tunes such as ‘Adios’. This single is filled with lush reverberated voices and warm analog love, making it a must-hear for the weekend.
2. DJ SUSAN – FREAK
DJ Susan will be making his return to Splash House for his second year in a row. He has had a massive output of music since last Summer with many fire tracks on his label Hood Politics as well as other favorites on OKNF, House of Hustle, and Perfect Driver. Below is one of our favorites, a chaotic tech groover ‘Freak’ off of his most recent No Gimmicks EP.
3. ILLYUS & BARRIENTOS – TOGETHER
Illyus & Barrientos is the duo from Glasgow that has been repping Toolroom around the world with their chunky rhythms, classic R&B samples, and infectious sound design. ‘Together’ on Mother Recordings has been one of our favorite club weapons this year. They’ve yet to play many shows in SoCal so we’ll be sure to go extra hard at Splash House so that they hopefully return again.
4. MONOKY & ITSBILLY – STAY FILTHY
Los Angeles based producer Monoky is a growing name in the local club scene. His residencies at Sound and Deep Space has put him in front of some of house music’s most renown artists. He has recently put out a tight string of tracks alongside frequent collaborator itsbilly. Their latest is a dirty dance floor groover ‘Stay Filthy’ which debuted on Lee Foss’s Repopulate Mars imprint.
5. WEISS & ELI BROWN – PUSH IT UP
Weiss embodies the spirit of classic house music with funky, jackin’, and spontaneous rhythms. This UK based artist is a true pioneer of his craft being one of Toolroom’s biggest stars while also being forward thinking enough for Dirtybird. He usually crushes it with melodic house music but this last one with Eli Brown entitled ‘Push It Up’ is a more dirty driving track.
