Le Youth - Touch

Our man Le Youth is one of our favorite music makers.  He’s an old soul with modern flair.  He’s developed a sound that always manages to simultaneously sound classic AND fresh.  And he always pulls it off with miles of style.  Le Youth is back at it again with his latest track, “T O U C H”, a track that House heads, Disco lovers & pretty much any dance floor freak out there will no doubt fall in love with.  With a vocal to die for & a beat that sounds good in any era, “T O U C H” will most certainly touch you in all the right places.

“Ain’t nobody gonna T O U C H you better”

hold me

Pat Lok continues to be the hardest working man in dance music.  2015 has picked up right where a very prolific 2014 left off.  In early January, he kicked off the new year with his smash single “All In My Head“.  And not to be outdone, he delivers his first remix of the year.  His remix of “Hold Me” by Gold Fields is a jazzy House dazzler filled with warm throwback vibes.  2015 is lookin’ mighty good so far for Mr. Pat Lok.

Be sure to heart (♥) this song on Hype Machine & Pat Lok will personally come to your house & hold you. [Link]

Figgy x weekend

Our man Figgy puts the booty in bootleg on his remix of “Often” by The Weeknd.  It’s not often that an artist can take a track by The Weeknd & sex it up more than it already is.  But Figgy is more than up for the challenge & handles his business with flair by layering the Radiohead classic “Everything In Its Right Place” over the sleazy R&B sounds of The Weeknd.  The result is a charged up, double dose of raw energy that will surely have the dance floor dripping in sex.

Out now via Cut & Dry Records.

In case you missed it, we premiered the track last month on our 4th annual Holidaze Mix:

Roche Musique continues to lead the charge in cutting edge electronic music with their latest release from Luxembourg artist Cherokee.  With a roster that already includes artists like FKJ & Darius, Roche Musique are no strangers to seductive funk.  Cherokee’s new track (the title track from his upcoming EP) “Teenage Fantasy” is another lesson in the art of seductive funk.  With vocals by Brooklyn artist GIBBZ, “Teenage Fantasy” is sexy, soulful & filled with groove.  It’s another masterpiece coming out of the new wave of modern French House.

The always on-point Australian label, Future Classic, released their “Teen Idols” compilation earlier this week which features various of the label’s 2014 releases along with four exclusive tracks from Touch Sensitive, KOA, 123MRK and Hayden James.  Hayden James delivers one of the compilation’s standout tracks with his song “Something About You”.  The groove on “Something About You” is frisky & upbeat yet somehow manages to be equally hypnotic & seductive.   It’s a unique blend of emotions that Hayden James seems to have mastered like few others are able to do.  “Something About You” has all the makings for a breakout 2015 by Mr. James.

dropout

Winter is looking bright & bouncy thanks to a new remix from Dropout of the Galantis smash “Runaway (U & I)”.  L.A. (by way of Santa Barbara) trio Dropout deliver a pounding yet blissful remix of supergroup Galantis that has winter festival anthem written all over it.  While Dropout may be deemed newcomers, it’s three members, Selden, Ray & Ethan have all had solo success.  From anthem Disco to big room Bass, their collective sound is diverse & well polished.  Don’t be surprised if attendees at this year’s SnowGlobe festival go wild in the snow for this one…

could be mine

If your Summer was extra sensual, it was probably due to the sex bomb that Pat Lok dropped on you back in June.  His original track “Could Be Mine“, featuring Patrick Baker on vocals, was one of the hottest love songs of the Summer.  Fast forward to current day & “Could Be Mine” makes its presence felt once again with three fantastic remixes.  The remix package features Wantigga, Chores & Red Milk.  Ranging from soulful Kaytra-grooves to peak time goodness to experimental soul, the “Could Be Mine” remix EP has a little something for everyone…

pomo

Pomo’s new EP, “The Other Day”, is comprised of eight beautifully crafted tracks, making the EP one of 2014’s finest.  There are no throwaways here.  The entire EP, from start to finish, is nothing short of an electronic masterpiece.  Heart melting melodies that’ll have you slow dancing in front of the fireplace.  Seductive funk paired with your favorite bottle of wine or whiskey.  And deep, dirty Disco to get the blood flowing & the asses shaking.  Stock up on firewood & spirits, lock yourselves inside for the weekend & keep the Pomo EP on repeat…it’s a house party for two.

Pomo – “The Other Day” EP is out now via HW&W Recordings.
