While French Express bossman Perseus was able to pioneer the Tropical RnB movement from a few years back and Kaytranada was able to elevate that sound with an edgier Hip Hop vibe, East Coast producer Figgy found a way to perfectly balance all of the aforementioned elements to come up with his own brand of sexy, soulful Deep Disco. Whether it’s original production or remix work, one listen to Figgy’s SoundCloud is enough to lure anyone in. With standout remixes of BANKS, T-Pain & Phantogram (to name a few) already under his belt, Figgy keeps that sexy remix train rollin’ with his latest, a remix of “Wanna Control Myself” by UK chanteuse Florrie. The result is another deep, hypnotic jam sure to put you in the sexiest of moods.
There are certain artists, past and present, who I will always be on board with no matter what their involvement is in a project. One past artist who I am always on board with and one current artist who I am always on board with both happen to be present on Gomma Records’ latest release. When I found out that Nancy Whang would be reworking Donna Summer, excitement levels were high. ”Working The Midnight Shift” is thought of as one of Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder’s finest collaborations. The updated version of the track gets a fantastic vocal revamp by Ms. Whang. She teamed up with dynamite producer Bonar Bradberry (one half of PBR Streetgang) to bring a polished, cosmic & energetic sound to the 1977 classic that Donna Summer herself would have been proud of.
“Working The Midnight Shift” is out May 16th via Gomma.
San Francisco’s MyKill teamed up recently with Keith Walker of The Holy Coast to produce the song “Without Time” and the outcome of this fine collab turned out to be magical. ”Without Time” is filled with glowing synths and sexy saxophone…just the type of soothing ingredients that will instantly warm your body and mind and whisk you away to beaches filled with soft white sand & endless sunshine.

What more can we say about Pat Lok that we haven’t said already? He’s well respected amongst his peers as well as all the big name blogs, he kills it at social media, has extensive knowledge of the NBA & is an all around good dude. Included in that all around game is his ability to produce quality tunes. Whether it’s his remix game or his original production, Pat Lok is always on point. His 2014 hot streak continues with his latest track, “Needy”. ”Needy” is a Deep Disco/Tropical House tune that manages to capture both the light and the dark. There’s no denying what a sexy track this is. Late Summer night sexual energy.
“(Everyday and night) I need you baby”
“Needy” is out NOW on Beatport via MANI/PEDI & includes remixes by Robotaki & Ekali.
Coming off a massive release on Amine Edge’s label CUFF, Thee Cool Cats quickly answer back with a funkier side, premiering their Don’t Kill My Vibe EP on the Ukraine-based label Dear Deer. This definitely rings true to the “vibes” given not only in the title but in the production – the Mexicali duo takes things into a deeper disco swing that fans of Classixx, Yuksek, and Aeroplane will be all over. Check the EP out below and pick it up today on Beatport!

The idea of Spring is observed around here as less of a season, and more of a feeling… it’s sunny and perfect year-round, from Santa Barbara all the way down to the border. A California-tongue-in-cheek way of saying, “Let’s wear less clothing than we do in the previous very slightly chillier months, and do you want to go ride bikes?” I believe that is exactly what my main man aRod beckons you to do with this latest installment in his now iconic SpringGlo mix series.
Five years of SpringGlo in the making, this signature of an effortlessly listenable mix features a selection of the usual choice sizzlers, as well the first Twelves remix in a bit, and a pretty righteous Todd Terje/Bryan Ferry track at the end.
If you would so kindly take up headphones and join us in chasing the sunset with a cocktail into the weekend, then yes, we would like to go ride bikes.

The “Romance” EP by Darius is about as close to perfection as an Extended Play can get. It’s five tracks of pure bliss, the perfect hybrid of Deep Disco, R&B & French House. Artists like Moon Boots, Zimmer & Pat Lok have raved about it. It’s almost impossible to pick a favorite track and it’s impossible not to listen to it over & over. If you are in love or plan on falling in love anytime soon, I highly suggest letting Darius’ “Romance” EP be your guide to cloud nine.
“Romance” EP is out now via Roche Musique.
