Nashville Indie Dance duo, Cherub, will be releasing a 4-track collection titled Antipasto next Tuesday, December 10th, via Columbia Records, with 3 originals including the guys’ huge viral hit, “Doses & Mimosas,” which has recently been remixed by GDD™ favs, The Knocks. Undoubtedly already a party anthem, “Doses & Mimosas” gets a nice Indie Electro re-vibe from the NYC duo — a perfect addition to the trio of Cherub originals on the release. “Doses & mimosas, champagne & cocaine help get me through…” Enjoy the premiere below.
George FitzGerald is at the top of his game. London born and Berlin based, FitzGerald has a firm grasp on House and Techno music, and there’s a diversity and quality in his production that’s not easily attained. Just signed to Double Six/Domino in the UK, FitzGerald released his latest offering in November — a 2-track EP titled “Magnetic” which features the producer’s first original vocal contribution. FitzGerald will be taking the Magnetic name on the road to North America beginning this Friday in San Francisco, hitting 8 additional dates up until around Christmas. We had a chance to chat with George ahead of the tour, touching on a multitude of subjects including his thoughts on writing his first vocal, the faults of the modern day dance album, producing for Katy B, and more.
Read on to view the whole chat as well as the full Magnetic tour schedule… Continue Reading
Last week, GDD™ fav, Cashmere Cat, revealed the first single from his debut release, Wedding Bells, on LuckyMe Records in Scotland. “With Me” is an incredible sample of Future Bass and a prime example of the unbelievable music coming from LuckyMe as of late. Home to Hudson Mohawke, Baauer, S-Type, and many more artists known for pushing the increasingly thin lines between Instrumental Hip Hop and dance music, LuckyMe seems to be a perfect home to the ingenious styles of Norway’s Cashmere Cat. Stream “With Me” below and purchase it now on iTunes.
Well, this is certainly a first. I’d never wondered what horny ghosts did in creepy haunted houses until seeing the new music video for “Andrea” from French Techno duo, Alesia. The track is the lead single from their debut EP out on OWSLA tomorrow. Check it.
After successful takeovers of Los Angeles and New York just two years ago, OWSLA boss Skrillex has announced today a string of shows in San Francisco, Brooklyn, Amsterdam, and Barcelona this February, curating unique lineups in each city to play along with him. Tickets will be available this Friday for all shows.
“I’m excited to do another round of Takeovers. This time we chose four cities that I really think represent and support great art and rad artists: San Francisco, Brooklyn, Amsterdam, and Barcelona. I can’t wait to play some new stuff for you guys.” – Skrillex
Lineups for individual cities below… Continue Reading
Remix royalty, MK (aka Marc Kinchen), is back with another strong showing today for Food Music boss, Shadow Child‘s, latest single “Friday” featuring vocals from Takura. Filled to the brim with piano and quick vocal cuts, MK stays true to the definitive House vibe from Shadow Child’s original while stripping away his bouncing bassline. In my opinion, you’d have to make a very strong argument to make me believe that anyone is nailing remixes like Marc Kinchen right now. √+
Alex Metric and Destructo have been working together in the studio as of late for a single due out on OWSLA in early January, and complementing the new release will be a number of shows kicking off in Miami just before Holy Ship! and culminating in Los Angeles at Exchange in DTLA on the first of February. Keep up with tour info and tickets on the tour website — theUK2LAtour.com.
The homie Rynecologist revealed his latest track, “B.A.N.,” today; releasing it as part of the Dance Mania tribute compilation on Boys Noize Records that we mentioned last week. Ryne’s offering features some jackin’ Ghetto Tech bass ready for the club, sticking with the overarching direction of the compilation that pays respects to the longtime Chicago imprint run by DJ Funk. Listen below and snag the compilation today on Beatport.
After a successful string of remixes along with an EP out on OWSLA, Los Angeles duo, Phantoms, has followed up with yet another high profile remix; this time taking on the chart-topping single, “Reflektor,” from Arcade Fire. Utilizing original percussion, Phantoms kick up the tempo and add a bit of Techno flare, with punching sinister synths fit for late night play. Free for download below.
As Calvin Harris once said, “I’ve got love for you if you were born in the 80s.” Since I was born in the grand year of 1988, this new tune from BNR Records reps, Boys Noize & Housemeister, on the new Dance Mania tribute compilation naturally stood out immediately to me. “1988″ boasts a classic rave vibe, with rough analog production pumping along relentlessly at 130BPM.
A huge fan of Chicago’s DJ Funk and the Dance Mania imprint of the 90s, Boys Noize lauds the relevancy of the Dance Mania sound to this day, and we’d have to agree with him. Pick up the 13 track compilation on BNR November 25th and check “1988″ below.
