Our friends over at Revel have started a new mix series entitled ‘Revel in Sound’ with the sole focus on showcasing their favorite sounds while serving up the emerging talent of tomorrow. This is a part of their holistic approach for all things culture, as Revel is a single curated platform where all things creative intersect, and more likely than not, are purchasable with a single click.
Curt Reynolds was raised on the sun-drenched beaches of San Diego and has been making an impact on the busy electronic music scene over the last year. With recent performances at Lollapalooza, Splash House, ME Cabo, Sound Nightclub and more, Curt Reynolds aka Ben Curtis, has had a sudden rise to recognition with a very promising future ahead. Now residing in LA, he brings funky, deep, and disco vibes that reflect his coastal upbringing and beach party mentality. You can find him sipping mezcal in the studio, smiling behind the decks and keeping people on their feet either poolside or late under the night shade.
Well, its time to fire up the BBQ and spend your days outside. Bit Funk is back with the soundtrack to go alongside that scene. Cue “Destination Sunrise”, a summer jam featuring vocalist Nefe on top of production boasting sprinkles of tropical dance elements, while remaining pop at its core. This track follows up on his late 2015 release of Off The Ground, which has garnered over 3 million streams on Spotify and trickled into mainstream radio across North America.
It’s been a long time coming for Gotta Dance Dirty’s own Shae B, the featured vocalist behind Free Slice‘s recent rendition of Drake’s smash hit, “One Dance.” The trio crafts a unique twist to the current Billboard Hot 100 #1 with a little bit of Southern California funk and just the right amount of deep dance drive. Ripe for spicy Summer nights and cool enough for the day time heat, it’s hard to imagine a time you wouldn’t want these vibes around. So cop the free download and spread the love around!

“Off The Ground” is the classy new club bomb from our man Bit Funk featuring vocals by UK singer Shae Jacobs.

Whether you’re singin’ along & bouncin’ in the car or hand clappin’ & high steppin’ at the club, “Off The Ground” is a surefire way to get just about anyone’s blood pumping. House heads, Disco freaks, Pop junkies & pretty much anyone with a little funk n’ soul inside of’em will WITHOUT A DOUBT be getting down to this one. PURE CLASS.
Morgan Page is a household name for most listeners. Kaskade is another name that rings a bell for a heap of people. But oddly enough, not many people are familiar with Kaskade’s band Late Night Alumni. They likely won’t be the case for much longer, especially after the group’s remix of ‘Running Wild.’ This track epitomizes the classic house sound, with a slight modern twist, leaving listeners with a full fledged feeling to get up and dance. If you’re anything like me, you’re probably asking yourself what’s next for the band. Seeing as they dropped two remixes fairly close together, my guess is they have more tricks up their sleeves, and are hopefully preparing for some exciting show announcements. Only time will tell. In the meantime, check out the stream below!
Last week we covered a huge remix of ASTR from Figgy. Today, we’ve got an equally massive edition from LEFTI. Driving disco chords perfectly describe this one. Really tough sound from this one, and it stands out nicely from the rest of the remix support. The balance of the harmony of the overlying melody and rough bass create a really cool vibe, and you can grab it for free. Download it now and look out for more from LEFTI.
As part of the first round of remixes on Auxiliary Tha Masterfader’s latest single “Disco Machine”, we’re excited to premiere the blistering new remix from fellow flying Dutchman, RipTide. If there are two producers who know the REAL side of Disco, it’s Auke & RipTide. Armed with analog synths, drum machines & vocoders, Auxiliary Tha Masterfader delivers the proper Disco while Riptide’s remix amps up the Italo/Electro side for the biggest banger on the remix package (featuring additional remixes by Nude Disco & Broken DJs and Aimes). Crank the volume & press play on the RipTide remix then head on over to Beatport for the exclusive release!
Our man in Amsterdam, Auxiliary Tha Masterfader, is back with a brand new original for your Disco delight. “Feel About U” is laid back & luscious…it’s the type of track that’ll be echoing through the skyscrapers at our next rooftop pool party in downtown LA. The vocal chops are sunny & soulful and the synths are creamy, glittery goodness. Nobody serves up delectable Disco quite like our man Auxiliary Tha Masterfader. Hats off, Aux!
“Feel About U” is out NOW via Animal Language. Animal Language label head, Mason, did a remix of “Feel About U” – be sure to check that one out, too. If Aux’s original goes down like sangria then Mason’s remix is the mojito to his sangria. A double dose of refreshing! [BEATPORT]
Our friends at Discobelle Records just dropped their latest — this one from Caotico. A nice balance of lighter disco and darker styles come together to make this a really interesting track. The futuristic vox sampling is nice, as well as the melodic plucking sounds. All in all, a really solid track from a really solid label. Stream it / buy below, and stay up on Caotico.
AND FOR YOUR VISUAL PLEASURE AS WELL, WE’RE EXCITED TO PREMIERE THE STYLISH NEW VIDEO FOR “GONE”. JUST LIKE THE SONG, THE VIDEO IS FORWARD THINKING AND FRESH. PEEP THE DOPENESS BELOW…
