Austin, TX artists S&M Music Company are getting ready to release their debut track “Walk Away”. Their label, Whiskey Pickle, describes the tune: “…’Walk Away’ is a slow burner that features Sam on vox and guitar while Mike lays down the keyboards, the bottom end, and offers his production talents. A stripped down bass and drum groove sets the frame work as chords build to a psychedelic boiling point with Sam’s echoed vocals bouncing around in a cavern of reverb. ”
Today we feature the perfect compliment to the original slow burner, Cyclist’s remix of “Walk Away”. Cyclist steers the song into party-jam mode adding a powerful, spacey disco feel to the original…another cosmic disco winner from our main man in Toronto, Cyclist.
GERMANS is a Brooklyn based artists who makes moody, heartfelt breakup songs. Auxiliary tha Masterfader is a producer from The Netherlands who makes top shelf disco (he also loves heavy metal). It’s their love of smooth disco that brings the two artists together on Aux’s remix of the GERMANS song “Cruel”. Auxiliary tha Masterfader gives the song just the right amount of disco kick while still maintaining the original’s sweet, soulful + dreamy feel for a wicked blend of Dreamwave, Funk + Italo. Kickin’ some ass at 98 BPM…
After fantastic remixes of Ellie Goulding, Little Dragon & Beaumont, Clancy is really starting to hit his stride. Clancy is on point once again with his remix game, this time remixing the new Magician track “When The Night Is Over”. Clancy adds his signature deep components, extracting & layering just the right amount of vocals & dropping a monstrous, pulsating bassline for another deep, dark + sexy remix.
The Magician’s “When The Night Is Over” remix EP is out NOW with additional remixes by Brodinski, Claptone & Ejeca.
Our very own aRod returns with another seasonal mix – FallGaze 2013. Whether it’s warm indie/disco sounds to fit the feel of the Indian Summer or darker, sexier deep house/minimal sounds to go with the cooler, moody feel of Autumn, this mix will fit whatever vibe you’re feelin’. The track list includes originals from Nadia Ksaiba, Hot Natured, LUXRY & Daniel Avery plus remixes by Diamond Cut, Grafton Primary, GRUM, Jonas Rathsman, PIXELATED and many more. Extra special shout out goes to the artists/labels/management who helped out with a few exclusives (Kaytranada’s remix of “Perfect Form” by Cyril Hahn and Joe Goddard’s remix of “Everything You Never Had” by Breach).
LISTEN. SHARE. ENJOY.
With one of the coolest A-sides (“The Music”) & AA-sides (“Pleasure Moon”) from the last year under his belt, along with being the man behind one of the all time best space disco opuses (“Take Em Up” by Shit Robot), it comes to no surprise that Marcus Marr (once again) delivers the goods. This time around he takes on “Safe With You” by Alex Metric & Jacques Lu Cont (one of the top tunes of 2013) and delivers a bassline that could liquify steel. Throw in some high-energy percussion and you’ve got yourself a sweaty + intense dance floor workout. Marcus Marr does it again…
There’s nothing more satisfying than when an artist rewards fans with a proper tune after a lengthy hiatus (anything longer than a few months off is considered to be lengthy according to the Blog Time Conversion Chart). Diamond Cut is a favorite artist among many blogs & his return to the remix is a welcomed one by his internet faithful.
Badboxes’ outstanding “JSMN” EP has been making the rounds over the last few months and Diamond Cut gives the title track a shiny overhaul on his brand new remix. The synths cascade and shimmer in all the right places while the woven-together, heartfelt vocals (particularly the “tell me you love me” build up) are a thing of beauty. After hearing the track you won’t be sure whether to smile or cry.
The track was released earlier this week via The Most Definitely for the low, low price of an email address. Submit that addy & float away…
As we make the transition from Summer to Fall, we’ve got a remix today which features two artists who befittingly capture the sound & feel of the seasonal transition. It’s Southern California versus Northern California. It’s sunshine versus haze. It’s the bright, bouncy feel of Summer transitioning into the dusky, seductive feel of Fall. It’s LA’s Goldroom getting the remix treatment from SF’s MyKill on the glorious track “Embrace”. It’s the best of both worlds on this deep, seductive yet still sunny remix. It’s the one time of the year when the guy in the beanie wearing a t-shirt & shorts doesn’t actually look too ridiculous…this track’s for you, bud.
If there’s anyone who knows how to disco, it’s DCUP. Melbourne’s DCUP returns with another slice of infectious power disco entitled “Don’t Be Shy” featuring the always fantastic Mereki. Mereki’s vocals are an excellent match with DCUP’s production style. Her vocal style on “Don’t Be Shy” is a nod to throwback New Wave R&B artists like Exposé & Nu Shooz. The track also blends in elements of classic disco along with modern day disco & house making “Don’t Be Shy” a red hot, can’t miss dance track.

What happens when two of dance music’s sexiest, most powerful beards collide? You get a hard hitting piece of dirty, sweaty, swaggy electro courtesy of The Magician & Brodinski. The combination of the two beardy maestros is exactly what you’d expect (and then some): a stomping kick, synths with attitude and sex-fueled vocals that will bring out the bad ass in anyone and everyone who comes face to face to this remix.
Each time a new track is released from the LUXXURY Edit Series, it always feels as if the new one is the best one to date. The truth of the matter is, they’re all excellent edits. LUXXURY’s formula of accentuating the hidden treasures from the multitrack stems without the usage of too many modern tricks has made the LUXXURY Edit Series a very successful endeavor. Today we feature the 4th edit in the series of 12, an edit of the David Bowie classic “Golden Years”. The liquid bassline, swirling guitar & perfect added kick hit in all the right places to make this edit another slo-mo disco winner from LUXXURY.
