Our current obsession has got to be this stellar revamp of a 1980′s classic “Here’s To You“ by New York based R&B/funk/disco group Skyy. The original already packs some serious disco funk, but GMGN breathes new life into this gem by adding some of that disco house flavor that we can’t get enough of. The Boston via UK producer serves up a golden dance floor banger that fits right in with any peak hour set. Funk, disco and house what more do you need? Get your fill after the jump.

And while we’re on this feel-good roll, we recommend taking this soulful cut for a spin. It’s called “Heart Attack” from Sydney duo Polographia with a collaboration from Rush Midnight. The funky instrumentals paired with sweeping synthscapes make for a slow burning dance floor anthem. It carries a certain sex appeal that makes us picture a crowded dance floor with two lovers spotting each other from opposite corners and slowly dancing their way up to each other up until the climactic and abrupt ending.
The dream team composed of That’s Nice and La Felix join forces once again, but only this time it’s for a remix. The team up to take Joshua Moriarty‘s “R.T.F.L.” in a new direction. It packs a sultry, soulful and funky punch that melts in the ears. All the guitar licks on this track make us weak at the knees. And with the bump up in the temperature this weekend you should enjoy this one by the pool.
DFA Records dropped a promising new single from a Berlin based artist named Perel (full name: Annegret Perel Fiedler). “Die Dimension” is like a sci-fi anthem that came out of a union of Bladerunner and Tron. It’s dark, eerie and seductive with a strong grip on the potency of electronica. The groove is relentless and dynamic with an affinity for a dance floor under the glow of disco lights. You can pick up your vinyl copies over at Bandcamp which include two vinyl exclusive remixes or just pick up the single here.
If you’re in the mood for something feel good and sun-kissed then look no further than this stellar EP that dropped last week via the Stratford Court crew. The EP is called “Cyan” and it hails from Berlin based producer Voju. There’s some really charming retro electro vibes oozing from this release that mesh perfectly with that California sun. Check out all four tracks after the jump and make sure to grab your copy here.
UK house meets southern bounce with a new Treasure Fingers and Vanilla Ace collaboration on Atlanta based imprint, Psycho Disco. They bring you the ‘Sweat’ EP featuring a surging title track that lives up to its name. And with this being turkey weekend that means we have an extended weekend with parties to follow. What better way to kick off a “friendsgiving” celebration than with a bouncing house cut like this one. The guys even announced a U.S tour for all of December. You can find the dates after the jump.
We’re a little over a week away from the release of Durante‘s brand new EP for Amtrac’s Openers imprint. And yesterday the folks over at Deep House London got their hands on the premiere of the next track off the release called “Split Wick.” The track is obviously born out of the electronic age, but carries a beautiful organic vibe that is richly layered with percussive textures that feel so natural. It’s humble and impressive at the same time. With every new track that we hear from Durante we keep falling deeper. It’s captivating to say the least. Stream it after the jump.
Kick your Friday off the right way with this eargasmic remix from Oliver as they remix the latest track from The Knocks and Captain Cuts! It’s oh-so-funky with plenty of disco to get those hips in motion to welcome the weekend festivities. It has that signature retro touch that the guys from Oliver have mastered over the years. You can’t go wrong dropping this in the mix. This remix is a quintessential party jam for all you nighttime revelers out there looking for something feel-good and dance worthy.
MK has been teasing about a brand new track for a little while now. We first saw remixes emerge for a track called “17″ and last week the official video surfaced with all its uplifting glory. It carries tinges of classic 90s house with a soulful contemporary club fodder. The diva vocals are uplifting and tug at the heart strings. And you get that effervescent touch with potent piano chord progressions. The story captured in the video follows the protagonist as he comes back home and reconnects with old friends and unfinished love connections. The single is out now via Ultra Music grab your copy here.
Kitsuné Hot Stream nails it once again with a stellar remix of Napkey‘s latest single, “At Least.” On remix duty we have Toulouse based Mirage Club with a groovy rendition aimed directly at the global dance floor. The remix is only a taste of the entire EP out on Kitsuné that includes the single and four top notch remixes from Mirage Club, Jabberwocky, Grandlife and Middle. It starts off with a beautiful psychedelic, harmonic intro and builds with a bit of bass and a funky bassline for that extra oomph. Once you reach the 2:30 mark you get a gorgeous French electro spin that will drive you wild.
