We’ve been searching for a new track to take with us during a road trip and it looks like we’ve hit the jackpot. Here is your daily dose of outrun electro mixed with tinges of disco pop. It’s a brand new remix for Alex Harrington‘s single “Talk To You” from Tampa, Florida based producer Dilemmachine. The remix transforms the original into a brooding and euphoric retro electro ride. The intro totally sets the mood with emotive chord progressions. Then the bassline comes into the fray with undulating synths and Alex’s vocals providing the heart-tugging romance. We can picture playing this on a sunset drive through the desert with the top down and the wind through our hair. Get your fill after the jump!
We can always count on jackLNDN to put his golden touch on a remix. One of his latest remixes is our current dance floor obsession. His take on Leon Lour‘s “Oceans” is quintessential sophisticated dance floor fodder. He uses the vocals and pieces of the original to his advantage creating something aimed directly at the hips. Lose yourself in these intoxicating sound waves.
This track is currently on repeat. It’s a brand new ditty from La Félix that’s been running through our minds all day and night. He dubbed it “I Wanna Know“ and it’s giving us some seriously seductive vibes. It’s a mix between Daft Punk’s “Something About Us” and Breakbot’s funky guitar licks. That bassline is absolutely killer and the tempo is serving up slow burning desire. Take this one to the dance floor as you exchange longing glances from across the room with that special someone.
Song of the day is definitely going to this absolutely stellar gem from Houseboy. The LA based producer/DJ has been sharing freebies all month long with “Wish You Were Here” being the most current. This glorious slice of disco is giving us all the feels. The vocals and chords are soulful, warm, euphoric and romantic enough to make you weak at the knees. And all the points to him for sampling Player’s “Baby Come Back!” Grab the free download here.
The Chainsmokers get the Lifelike treatment on one of the tracks off their debut album ‘Memories…Do Not Open.’ The track is called “Honest” and the original is an unassuming pop track meant for mass consumption. Lifelike builds on the vocals and creates an uplifting, handclap electro anthem that speeds up the tempo. The result is dynamic, retro tinged electro pop that is sun-kissed enough to enjoy for these last few weeks of summer.
Jesse Kivel, of Kisses fame, returns with a solo project and EP dropping in early October. The first single off the EP is titled “LA Story” and it comes with an ultra smooth adult contemporary edge. Soulful and seductive and it totally reminds us of a mix between Toro y Moi and Sade. It’s the kind of track you want to be listening to late at night with a whiskey on the rocks. The ‘Content’ EP will be dropping via his newly minted label New Feelings. Check it out after the jump.
We’re currently swooning over Oliver‘s latest single titled “Chemicals.” The duo teams up with MNDR for the vocal treatment. The track is such a wild ride with all the different levels. It takes you from the unassuming intro that kicks things off warm and airy and then the groove shifts to this darker electro build that cascades into an uplifting and soaring chorus. It’s groovy and tinged with the right amount of retro under their crisp and effervescent production. It’s the perfect ode to the end of summer.
Here goes something to look forward to for next week! The albums just keep rolling in. Maya Jane Coles is gearing up to drop her new album, ‘Take Flight,’ on August 25th. So far, there are two singles available with the pre-order titled “Weak” and “Werk.” Maya’s music is well-known for it’s dark, alluring and seductive sound. She posted a music video for “Weak” a few days ago and it matches the mystery and edge in track. The video features her and projected images of her face singing of a love that leaves her vulnerable. There’s something so intoxicating about her music that leaves you craving more. We’ve marked our calendars for the release and you should definitely do the same!
We’ve only come across a couple of remixes of The xx that we liked. This next one popped up a couple of weeks ago and it comes from Brazilian producer/DJ Nogue as he teams up with his buddy Guerreros to put their spin on this stellar track. The group’s self titled album is still one of our favorites of all time. Everything from the artwork to the instrumentals to the vocals was top notch, so we definitely approached this remix with caution given our bias towards the original. And we were pleasantly surprised. It’s rhythmic and maintains a lot of the original instrumentals while injecting a rad electronic dance groove with a mid-tempo speed. Check it out after the jump.

This summer has given us so many gems and as we ride on the high that came from Moon Boots’ debut album we are taken even higher upon learning that Touch Sensitive‘s debut album, ‘Visions,’ will be here in a few weeks! Touch Sensitive has been a staple on most of our playlists for quite some time now so this album couldn’t come soon enough. So far, he’s shared the first single off the album titled “Lay Down” and yesterday the Future Classic crew dropped the second single called “No Other High.” It’s beaming with deep funk and soaring disco grooves with vocals from Electric Fields. This track is the ultimate anthem for all our night revelers out there. You shouldn’t be sitting for this one!
