Respected label Diynamic have announced the seventh edition of its popular Four to the Floor series. The series aims to champion upcoming talents who are being welcomed into the label fold for the first time. Each "Four to the Floor" EP is comprised of four different dancefloor-orientated tracks from different producers, handpicked by the Diynamic family. The first track on the EP comes courtesy of Human Machine, a musical project comprised of four Sicilian DJs and friends. "Africa" features slow building layers of synth chords over a strolling bassline, for a straight up track that fits perfectly into the Diynamic sound. It's followed up by "Orbital" from Moonwalk. A thudding bassline underpins waves of synth arpeggios, before an atmospheric breakdown provides the focal point of the track. The third track is from Alex Schaufel, an upcoming Italian DJ and producer. An ethereal intro leads into the thumping beat that helped make "Black Drumma" a hit when Solomun dropped it at his recent Port of Ibiza gig. Rounding off the seventh edition of Four to the Floor is "Aquamour", the latest track from Laurent Garnier-supported Parisian Marst. The track's more uplifting feel, relaxed pace and epic layers of chords make it a fitting choice to close off the EP.

Elusive Sicilian born DJ, producer and label owner Mauro Di Martino (aka Musumeci) is certainly no stranger to the business, having been active since the late 80s and being a member of techno outfit Human Machine with Francesco Sorrentino, Simone Carpenzano and Paolo Lauretta. As Musumeci, his output continues to remain versatile in style, effortlessly weaving balearic touch with techno and deep house to craft tracks that have been championed far and wide by the biggest DJs in the game, from Dixon and Ame to Dettmann and Solomun. Taking inspiration from the outer realms of Earth, his 2014 released Gemini Project LP was born out of Project Gemini, NASA's second ever human spaceflight program which supported the legendary Apollo. The experimental album became a real turning point in his career, putting him and his label Engrave Ltd on the map. His latest release comes in the form of the Foundation EP and sees him once again travel through interstellar space to craft another selection of experimental house and techno cuts. Now we welcome the man into the mix for i-D for his debut i-DJ. Delve into 61 minutes of pulsating house and techno bangers.
