Justin Pak teams up with Mexican producer Jizz once again for a pulsing old school house jam called “Baile.” Every time these two get together we’re hit with a groovy deep house cut that sets dance floors ablaze. It has some of that swinging, slightly funky, bass that can be traced back to the origins of house music. Lush four to the floor magic ensues and all you want to do is dance like it’s the weekend. Feel good dance music at its finest. Check it out after the jump.
It’s pretty amazing what Sable Blanc can churn out from his home studio setup. His latest track, “Musique D’ascenseur” is lifted from a compilation that is out now via Honey Butter Records. And this blissed out tune is serving up copious amounts of soulful, sophisticated house. There’s some beautifully layered melodies at play here with a deep and potent bassline. Wait until you get an earful of those harmonious harp chords. Your head will definitely be in the clouds.

We’re currently hooked on the latest single from Roland Tings that just dropped today with the Cascine crew. The single is titled “One Hundred“ and it features a charming vocal collaboration from HIGH HØØPS. It’s a slice of mid-tempo heaven that completely melts in your ear. The melody has that cheeky tinge of funk to get those hips in motion. It’s one of those tracks that was made for a drive through the city at night with the top down and the music on full blast.
French-Canadian singer/songwriter Charlotte Cardin has been lighting up the blogosphere as of late with her new EP ‘Main Girl’ so much so that she’s even garnered the attention of the one-and-only Elton John. The title track from the EP has also peaked the interest of JackLNDN who provides an extra soulful remix with that air of romance that he’s mastered. Charlottes jazzy vocals reel you in while Jack keeps you on your feet and swaying to this sultry crooner.
A few weeks back we fell head over heels for Marcus Marr‘s latest disco dream titled “High Times.” It’s a funkadelic anthem with a really rad composition that serves up plenty of break downs and textures that are refreshing to say the least. Last week, Marcus shared a brand new remix for the stellar track from German producer Gerd Janson. Gerd takes the original into lunar orbit with a solid tech house rendition geared for all those looming NYE warehouse parties. Keep an ear out for the release on the indomitable DFA Records.
Brisbane’s Tyler Touché gets some Sondrio loving with a stellar new remix for his latest single “Neverland.” Where the original is a disco infused anthem, Sondrio’s version takes things deeper and straight to peak hour dance floors. He’s serving up some Detroit tinged house vibes here with a sultry little rhythm that hits all the right spots. Take it for a spin after the jump!
One of our favorites, Satin Jackets, returns with a brand spanking new single titled “Mirage.” Following in the footsteps of their previous single, “Northern Lights,” the German talent continues to gain inspiration from Scandinavia. We can always count on Tim Bernhardt to deliver lush, sophisticated disco. Silky vocals dance along effervescent synths and bouncing bass with subtle funky guitars. Talk about a mood boost! Take it with you this weekend. Grab the download after the jump!
On a late night music binge we stumbled onto this rad single from an enigmatic producer going by the name of Smoke On The Horizon. So far, all we’ve managed to find out is that he’s based out in Russia. But this track carries some potent French touch vibes that totally caught our attention. No vocals necessary for this one, just a sultry bassline with tinges of funk and retro synth progressions. You can grab it here.
Bit Funk serves up an extended remix of Penguin Prison‘s latest single, “Turn It Up,” and we bet you won’t be able to listen to it just once. The thought of Bit Funk and Penguin Prison’s sounds coming together should be enough to peak your interests. We’re big fans of the original version which is a bit more light-hearted with a charming electro pop glow and his signature vocals. Bit Funk builds on that sun-kissed energy in the original and takes it to the dance floor while keeping the vocals front and center. Give yourself some room and hit play because you’ll definitely be on your feet for this gem.
Slowly, but surely we are getting a better view of Lane 8‘s forthcoming album. With each passing single we are piecing together something beautiful and unique to his sound. Yesterday he shared the second single to his sophomore album ‘Little By Little’ called “Atlas“ and it’s as uplifting as it is enthralling. It’s powerful and minimal with bubbling pad arpeggios, sweeping synths and solid drum pattern. From listening to it and reading the name it evokes a sense of wonder that makes us want to go outside and climb a mountain. Awesome work here from Lane 8. This album is already becoming one of our favorites for the new year.
