23.03.2019 Blastculture’s back with Alannah’s Rainbow

Blastculture returns to Toucan with Alannah’s Rainbow, his first new material since 2017’s Waiting Area. Combining fresh and funky house rhythms with mellow filtered pads, plenty of effects and percussion, Blastculture drops the beats halfway through the track and throws in an acidic bassline for good measure. The Beat Doctor Pot Of Gold remix plays on the acidic bassline, adding distortion, old school techno riffs and an uplifting female vocal sample. Grab both versions from our release page: Alannah’s Rainbow

18.02.2019 Notch presents future garage remixes of Psychadelik Pedestrian

Our first release of the new year includes two new remixes from Notch with a future garage / progressive house feel. Notch takes on Psychadelik Pedestrian’s uplifting chillout track Fledgling, pumping up the tempo and adding glitchy house rhythms while keeping the original soaring string melodies. Diamond Cuts return to Toucan, joining forces with Notch for a bass-driven house remix of Cut and Blast’s track Shoutout, blending the original vocal stab riffs with plenty of rhythm and a deep, dark bassline. Both remixes are free to download in MP3 format, and ready for use in your own DJ sets, productions and videos. Grab them here: Notch Remixes Psychadelik Pedestrian

11.12.2018 Marc Burt releases the Landscapes EP

In our latest EP release, out today, Marc Burt presents three uplifting deep trance melodies in the Landscapes EP.  The Human Race builds with a deep, floor-quaking bassline, and uplifting pads before building to a crescendo with haunting electronic piano melodies and strings, bringing back the beats and bassline to reach a climax with the relentless beating of tribal rhythms.  Two more full length tracks can be found on the EP, which is available for free download right here on our website!  Check out the Landscapes EP for more details.

30.10.2018 JVS returns with some retro house music

Back with two new tracks on our latest EP, released today, JVS presents two classic retro house tracks.  Proven Reality includes plenty of uplifting old school piano riffs and strings, crisp house beats and uplifting synth patterns. Tunnel Vision blends brass stabs, vocal snippets and a retro uplifting bouncy bassline before breaking into a stuttering chord pattern. Both tracks are free to download and re-use in non-commercial projects with a Creative Commons licence: Proven Reality by JVS

11.10.2018 Redmann’s first new tracks in six years are now available

In our latest release, Redmann returns with his first new original material in six years, bringing two uptempo tracks on a house and trance tip.  Combining melodic leads with vocoded vocals, Got Me Thinking is an uplifting commercial dance track, while Earworm is a darker track with a pumping trance vibe.  For the bonus remixes, Notch reworks Got Me Thinking into a pumping and uplifting house anthem, blending the vocoder with warm synth pads and a deep, pulsating bassline, and turns Earworm into a slowly building progressive monster with deep reverberating bass and subtle lead synthwork.  The tracks are all available under a Creative Commons licence from our releases page, so grab them now: Redmann – Got Me Thinking

17.09.2018 Marc Burt gets the remix treatment

Two Marc Burt classics get the remix treatment in our latest EP, courtesy of Notch and Marc himself.  Notch reworks Five Senses, adding dirty electro bass to create a pumping, slightly dark house anthem.  Marc is on hand to add the perfect antidote with a clean and slightly minimal retro trance remake of the same track, adding building analogue arpeggios. To complete the EP, Marc turns his hand to his 2010 track, 36 Miles, reworking it into an uplifting progressive trance tune with melodic synth riffs while retaining the catchy lead hook.  Download all of the tracks from our release page: Marc Burt – Five Senses Remixed.

31.08.2018 New EP from EE7A

EE7A returns to follow up his debut Drive EP with another four track release full of analogue techno mayhem, available today.  Download all four tracks free of charge from our release page: Divide By Zero EP.  As usual, the EP is released under a Creative Commons licence which allows you to re-use the music in your own podcasts and DJ mixes free of charge for non-commercial use.

26.01.2018 Carousel EP now out from Aerologic

Our latest EP features three uplifting progressive house cuts from Aerologic. Carousel builds with a trance-style riff and edgy bass, before breaking down into a lush pad section with soaring chords. Emotions Taking Over builds with pumping bass drops, vocal snippets and synth plucks before introducing haunting pianos and pads. Aerologic joins forces with Notch for the closing track, White Label, to combine progressive house with deep house and old school influences. In true Toucan style, all three tracks are available for free download with Creative Commons licence for using in your own podcasts, videos and DJ mixes – download them now: Carousel EP.

02.01.2018 Drones tops our 2017 download chart

Happy new year! We’ve been in a reflective mood here at Toucan as we see in 2018, and have carried out our annual check to see which of our tracks have proved the most popular over the last year. In 2017, Psychadelik Pedestrian’s Drones was our most downloaded track, knocking Risey’s Memories Of Thailand from the top spot after five years as our most popular track between 2012 and 2016. Taking second and third in our chart are two tracks from Phish Funk’s Discotheque EP. There’s also a surprise new entry for Phish Funk in tenth place, with their track Beautiful Geometry entering our chart for the first time, despite being nearly ten years old, thanks to its inclusion on our Best Bytes 4 compilation released last year. You can view the complete chart along with previous year countdowns on our Toucan Music Download Chart page.

27.12.2017 New remixes of Psychadelik Pedestrian vocal tracks

Fresh today, Aerologic and Notch present two remixes of classic Psychadelik Pedestrian vocal tracks. Notch takes the reins for a deep house reworking of Psychadelik Pedestrian’s 2010 track Tears In My Heart, while Aerologic is on hand for a remix of Psychadelik Pedestrian’s 2011 track Upside Down. Download both tracks free of charge and released under a Creative Commons licence for you to re-use in your DJ sets, podcasts and videos for non-commercial use: The Vocal Remixes.
