aRod’s Picks

Goldroom – Embrace (Cyclist Remix)

Goldroom’s got a beautiful new EP out entitled “Embrace” & he’s recruited a nice list of all stars to remix the first single. Cyclist takes the title track to atmospheric new heights.

Shift K3Y – Keep Your Mouth Shut (Things That We Do) feat. Griminal

Shift K3Y takes his diversity to a new level with some jackin’ hip hop house.  It’s a dancefloor rap-a-long!

Crooked Colours – Moontan Nocturnal (Grafton Primary Remix)

MASSIVE throwback style remix from Grafton Primary, harking back to the glory days of indie dance from the mid to late 2000s. Try not to shed a tear right after the two minute mark when the Fred Falke-ian bassline kicks in & the classic Daft Punk vibes start flyin’.

Hunter Hunted – Keep Together (Viceroy Remix)

Everyone knows that Summer’s just about over but Viceroy does not care.  It’s more Summertime goodness on this one…90s pop punk with a disco twist (some of the verses sound like a slowed down “Flagpole Sitter”…remember that one?)

Nova Albion – City Streets (MyKill Remix)

If there’s one thing dance music is sorely missing, it’s live guitar like this. Kudos to San Francisco’s MyKill for incorporating live guitarist Jonathon Fessenden on this refreshing remix.

Drake – Hold On, We’re Going Home (TJR 120bpm Refix)

Our bud TJR kicked Drake up to 120BPM for this dancefloor-ready remix.

Giraffage – Better Off Alone

Remember Alice Deejay? Here’s Giraffage trying his hand at a remix of the classic 90s jam.

DCUP – Don’t Be Shy (Wave Racer Remix)

Wave Racer is doing some very, very cool stuff at the moment. Here he turns DCUP‘s “Don’t Be Shy” into a full-on, feel good Hip Hop beat.

Hey Champ – On Holiday

The Chicago Nu Disco/Pop trio is out with a perfect end-of-summer tune featuring the beautiful vocals of BeuKes who they teamed up with for their last single, “Comet,” as well.

Joel Compass – Kiss Love Goodbye

Joel Compass released the excellent Astronaut EP on Black Butter Records early this month. He accidentally sent out one of the 4 tracks as a download, and instead of taking it back, he just embraced it and gave it to his Facebook fans. Nice lad.
