Another truly delectable remix from French Touch Maestro Fred Falke has hit the airwaves and it has us feeling like we’re living inside a Sylvester music video. Perhaps that’s because, this time, the remix is for a track from a disco group fronted by French singer Sheila, at the height of the disco movement, between 1977 and 1980. The original track was officially released 1980, but Fred Falke gives it a 2020 update by adding an irresistibly upbeat modern flair that that will leave very few people not rushing the dance floor. It’s no wonder Falke has been quiet. He’s been quietly brewing these gems.
Toward the end of last month Lee Foss and Anabel Englund dropped a unmistakable summer hit titled, “Warm Disco” via MK‘s AREA10 imprint. Today, Ultra Records unleashed a visually stimulating music video for the track that gives us late 90s/early 2000s psychedelic vibes. The top notch collaboration is unsurprising considering Foss & Englund’s frequent previous works together. For this reason it’s no surprise it satisfied our expectations on every level. This is definitely the kind of track you want on all your summer playlists. Trust us. It’s bound to be a hit. The track is now available everywhere.
Every year, as if completely unexpected, there’s a sudden surge of good music. It can usually only mean one thing: things are heating up and summer is just about to get started. Temperatures are definitely rising and if there’s one thing this year is getting right it’s definitely the music.
French Touch maestro Fred Falke dropped a delightful remix for Mexican duo Clubz. It’s a got touch of classic Fred Falke in all the right places, and it’s making us wish we could take the track out for a spin on a club dance floor. Sadly the pandemic is raging on, so outdoors by the pool, will have to do for now. And while we’re at it, you can also stream the dreamy Telepopmusik remix below as well. It’s no secret these guys definitely have a knack for enlisting the right people.
Another much needed “feel good” track dropped today. This time it’s from Polo & Pan. “Summer is finally upon to bring sunshine in our life and Feel Good. This new single celebrates the beauty of the simple joys that are at hand in our lives. We are super happy to share it with you today.” With a tinge of Bossa Nova, bright, cheery choruses and even a saloon-inspired sounding piano, just how could it not? Shout out to the guys for, despite the June gloom, finally making it start to feel like summer. You can stream the track via your favorite streaming platform now.
If you couldn’t get enough of the last album Moon Boots unleashed into the world, you’re going to absolutely LOVE this. His latest project is an EP that is going by the name of ‘Pure Moons’ and it feels like the perfect spin off. The release drops today and is packed with 3 groovy tracks that could have most likely fit comfortably into ‘Bimini Road‘, but they definitely have their own flavor. The stand out track for us is “Deep Love.” It seeps the perfect kind of cosmic house vibes we’re all after- just in time for summer.
“Imagine a world where time drifts slowly, a world where music carries you away. Experience Pure Moons, the perfect soundtrack for your way of life…Pure emotion. Pure ecstasy. Pure pleasure. No other label gives you the feeling of Pure Moons.”
Take it for a spin below.
Our French brother Jerry Bouthier sent us a simply PHENOMENAL mix that has left us in the highest of spirits after just one listen. We are beyond thrilled to be the first to share the latest mix in his series ‘Resis.tanz‘. The series is “a new mix series aimed to help deal with the current global crisis, tracks combined as soothing tools and powerful assistance to our mental well-being and collective recovery/healing, musical contributions to the conversation.” This second volume of Discoteca, in the series, goes back to the dancefloor, bringing a much needed boost of energy and uplifting vibes to homes in confinement or as accompaniment to the rediscovery of the outside world- the perfect feeling for a long-awaited, well deserved, summer.
The 80s synth sounds and machine-generated grooves, which paved the way for much of today’s electronic dance music, are being rediscovered, propelling nightclubbing 2020 into future disco territory. Think vintage analog gear, hypnotic funked-up basslines, thumpy primary repetitive beats etc. with some inspired vocals and revised Italo disco melodies thrown in – and above all the wish to dance the night away in style, make friends and fall in love with life again…
Includes tracks by Mura Masa & Georgia, Lifelike, Renato Cohen, Marco Passarani (Tiger & Woods), David Jackson, Ekkah/Alan Dixon, Kim & Buran, Oliver Koletzki, Warner Case etc. as well as Jerry’s own (unreleased) instrumental rework of Ryan Paris ‘La Dolce Vita’.
Give your ears a much needed dose of therapy below.
Casablanca Sunset has been on fire this last month- hopefully not literally, but most definitely figuratively. The label dropped a slinky disco track from Brooklyn based producer Slug Father, oozing with bumpy funk. This is definitely the kind of track that ends, and you just keep hitting play. The track is pure, romantic, uplifting summer vibesss. The kind of vibes you want end to your summer nights with, and hopefully the kind vibes we’ll start to see the year 2020 turn around with. “Think of U” is out now.
When we saw Satin Jackets tease his approval for a Kraak & Smaak remix on Twitter a while back, it made our hearts flutter. Not only because these were two artists we absolutely love and adore, but also because Kraak & Smaak put our favorite album last year, and well because…this was undoubtedly match made in heaven. A match we were just waitinggg to this to happen with. And thankfully, despite all that anticipation, it didn’t disappoint. The cherry on top was that “Sommeron” was definitely one of our favorite track from Kraak & Smaak’s ‘Pleasure Centre’ album. The result is a careful crafted, tropical rendition, subtly adjusted by Jackets to bring out the best parts of the track. Don’t believe us? Dive in below.
It was only this past year that we discovered Rosa Ama and it may be because it’s when the duo dropped their first single. Since then, the duo, which is a collaboration between British songwriter David Harks and Belgian composer Vicente Milioto da Palma (who also goes by the name of Vhyce), together create extremely memorable tracks that have become instant favorites for us. Their latest, comfortably situated between Disco and House, comes from Casablanca Sunset. It’s the kind of track you’ll want to get up, dance to and also sing a long to. It’s upbeat and groovy in an eternally elegant sort of way. The track is out now. You can listen below.
German producer Satin Jackets surprised us with a new single titled, “Think About It” set to be released just a day shy of summer via Eskimo Recordings. The track is a return to the seductive signature sound that cemented his name over the last decade, making him a key player in the world of nu disco. Led by shimmering female vocals and a bouncy, upbeat bassline, the track is definitely groovy enough for either day or night as the weather starts to heat up. We don’t think we will ever get enough of this kind of Satin Jackets, so please, keep it coming.
You can stream and purchase the track via your favorite platform this coming Friday, June 19th.
