Bon Voyage are DJ / producer Arveene and fashion powerhouse / rhyme wizard, Shamon Cassette, who together are a force of nature when it comes to igniting dancefloors with their Hip House, Acid House productions and high energy live sets. As a new set of freshly revamped remixes of ‘High Power’ drop F*CLR, DMCWorld goes Trainspotting with Bon Voyage.. Let’s roll…
OG MarlynMonROLLUP – No Guestlist – OG ROLLUP
This is a big NY record at the moment, its bravely refreshing. The last artist that tried and trued this sound out in NYC was Azelia Banks. The Production is perfection and her voice is a gift.
Bon Voyage – High Power (2023 Rework) – F*CLR Records
Our first single since 2020 is a recut of that said record, it’s an ode to the Dirty Bird record crew and dedicated to Fab 5 Freddy, Ash & Jo, Doug Lazy, Chill Eb, Prince and the Future Funk of George Clinton. There’s also an Andrew Sant Rework of this coming soon!
Lady J M.A.D Edits – Rakim Under – M.A.D. Records
Feeling all the audio deliveries from the RU. This is a low sling jackin hip house number that rolls tightly and drops some tough lyrical content and an almost Indian string sample. OG goodness!
Spky – Money Mantra – Rad Safari Tapes
This record from the LA based polymath is literally a mantra. Chosen because we wake up and listen to it as our first action of the day. It’s a true money house blessing.
Bon Voyage – Two Faces – Strength In Numbers
Dropped over lock down on Sin Records out of Eire, shouts to Glen Brady, we’re gonna be re dropping this one with a new remix and video by Graham Cruz (Beyonce / Tiffanys).
Demi Riquísimo – Proto Call – Life and Death
We are felling this! The clash of disco and old school Italo House drives this along. It killed the dance floor when dropped this last weekend. Big ups to Demi and DJ Tennis for bringing this to our ears.
Melé – Hotel Lobby Edit – Club Bad
Melé is the craziest, we love his vibe, energy and production steez. Percolator Rap-Housery, this goes off at the midnight hour when things get deep down and sweaty! All love for Melé!
Scuba – Nowot – Hardcore Heaven – Hotflush
A classic nod to the golden age of Rave culture from Scuba on this delicious coloured vinyl splatter. We’re massive fans of this, Shouts to Altern 8 , Liam H and rest of the OG Rave fraternity. Watch your bassbins we’re telling ya!!
Faxid (Tiga & Jesper Dahlbäck) – Acid in My Head – Turbo
A 303 Hip House Acid atom bomb from two of the best in the game! Harking back to the Trax and all that good Acid of the 80’s that we miss, great to have an upgrade for the current Acid House wave.
Yunna – Sea – Worst Behavior Recs
Sea has a big jungle vibe while encompassing the grit and feel we admire most in Acid House and rave culture. The blue print breaks result in a none stop nodder from this LA via Taiwan devastating beat creator.
