A few weeks ago the taste-makers over at Discotexas released a four track remix package for tracks off Xinobi‘s album ‘On The Quiet.’ The package features remixes from Kraak & Smaak, Ali Kuru, Fake Money and Wild & Free! We’re currently hooked on the Wild & Free rendition of “Morning Fix.” It’s hard to improve on a track that was already amazing from the start, but Wild & Free give it a sultry nu disco makeover that uses the vocals and original synth arpeggios beautifully. They transform it into an ultra groovy and effortlessly cool anthem to dance to by the pool.
Today has been a great day for new music. Digitalism also dropped a new single today called “Glow” that is giving us early Digitalism vibes (think “Pogo” era). Brilliant and uplifting electronica that gives us the urge to hear it in the middle of a crowd and feeling the collective euphoria. Digitalism is definitely back and serving up copious amounts of that youthful, vibrant and effortlessly cool electronic music that had us hooked ever since they first came out on the scene. Hit play up above.
Moon Boots released a brand new remix earlier today by none-other-than French Touch maestro, Lifelike, and it’s everything we expected and more! The Parisian producer takes on Moon Boots’ exquisite slow burner “Keep The Faith“ featuring vocalist Nick Hanson. This was definitely a standout on the album and we never imagined it could become a sumptuous, nostalgic and mesmerizing nu disco dream. Lifelike takes the track to new heights with minimal vocals, a funky bassline and uplifting percussion. It’s an instant favorite for the year and one that will come in handy over NYE! Take it for a spin and fall in love up above. Also, big ups to the taste-makers over at Anjunadeep for releasing this gem.
We always look forward to new videos from Jungle. The seamless blend of soul, R&B, jazz and funk is always supported by brilliant videos that showcase talent across multiple artistic methods. And a couple of days ago they released two brand new singles on the same day with videos for each one! First up is “Heavy, California” with a video set on majestic farm land with amazing dancers matching the funk in the track with top notch choreography. The second track is called “Cherry” with a moody, sultry and slow burning vibe with a super rad video with equally talented dancers that is played completely in reverse. Both giving different vibes but still from the same family and both are absolutely beautiful. Check out “Heavy, California” up above and “Cherry” after the jump! And keep an ear out for Jungle’s new album, ‘For Ever,’ out September 14th!
We had a feeling that Satin Jackets had that quintessential summer anthem brewing. He’s always a staple in our summer playlists and it looks like it has finally arrived. On Friday, he dropped his latest single titled “Primordial” with vocals from the super talented Niya Wells. He has an ear for picking the perfect vocalists for his vibe and Niya delivers the message beautifully. It’s sultry, romantic, feel-good and sun-kissed disco that makes us want to drive down the coast with the top down. And you really can’t beat a good disco bassline.
The etcetc crew unleashed the latest from producer George Michelle a few days ago. It has a super nostalgic 90s house vibe that is hitting all the right spots. Those classic and melancholic synth chords are amazing on their own, but when they pair with the vocals it’s swoon worthy. It’s perfectly heady in the breakdowns and really on fire when the bass hits. George’s got a definite dance floor burner here. Check it out after the jump!

Who can resist a sumptuous, deep and jazzy house original? We certainly can’t which is why we’ve had this one on repeat all day! It hails from Denmark via the golden touch of Niles Cooper. He teams up with Normandy based label Planet Gwer known for pumping out top notch house music. The track is the B side of Niles’ new 12″ EP ‘Feelin’ Deep.’ If that sexy trumpet hitting all the right spots right from the intro doesn’t peak your interest then you definitely need to get your ears checked.
Brb. We’re currently vibing to all the glorious feel-good vibes that this jam is churning out. It’s a soulful and melodic little ditty from Slug Father called “I Wish I Could.” The track is lifted from Irish imprint Jelly Red‘s third VA installment that dropped a few weeks back featuring tracks from SWIN, Adamant and Mark Laird. Slug Father definitely brings the heat with this groovy cut with a Glenn Jones sample that is aimed at making those love connections on the dance floor. Dive in after the jump!
The brand new video for Hayden James‘ latest track “Just Friends” is out and serving up all the feels. Much like the name suggests the track centers around themes of friends realizing they haven’t quite reached the friend zone and there are more feelings than they would like to admit. The video mirrors the track and features two protagonists that enjoy a day of hanging out as “just friends” in Santa Monica realizing by the end of the night that they vibing with each other as more than friends. The track is oh-so-groovy with an R&B tinge featuring vocals from Boy Matthews. Check out the video up above!
The “All Your Love” remixes are here! And they’re going to be holding us over up until Flight Facilities lands in L.A in September for their show. We’re beyond excited to hear all these new tracks live with two new vocalists joining them on tour. The remix package includes two versions of the track by Parisian label boss Joakim and a remix from Morgan Page. Joakim gives the track a brilliant, bubbling and sun-kissed “paradise” mix as well as a gorgeous vocal mix that takes the track to deeper cinematic territory. Morgan Page flips the original into an uptempo electronica groove that is slightly reminiscent of early Digitalism. Check out all three versions after the jump!
