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…
Goldroom has been evolving like crazy over the past year. With the rolling out of his live act, as well as the huge reception of his tunes, this project is becoming massive. Arguably his most popular tune, “Embrace” is definitely a crowd favorite, and he’s just released a new version with George Maple on vocals. The two actually had originally the track together, so what we’re really hearing is the track coming to fruition. Such a beautiful track, make sure to buy it below.
“Getting the chance to release music through Snapchat gave me the perfect opportunity to show everyone the version of Embrace that I’ve always heard in my head. George Maple and I actually wrote Embrace together, so having this come full circle, and to have her singing on the song, feels like a dream.”

Queens, NY artist Dart Party poses the question “Are You In?” on his fantastic new single (featuring the talented Govales on vocals). If Dart Party is talking about an all encompassing track that’s a little bit House, a little bit Disco, a little bit Electro and a lotta bit Dance, then YES…we are in. This forward thinking, versatile Dance track shines beautifully with its shimmering, soulful vocals, making this the perfect track to dance your Summer nights away to.
Our weary hearts are very susceptible to feels this time of year. Having just battled winter’s icy grasp, they are primed and ready for a warm embrace. This seasonal transition into a welcomed period of rejuvenation thus provides the leitmotif of Sprung Selections Vol. 3, and encourages the curious game of catching feelings.
Happy hunting xx
Fresh off his remix of Big Data, LEFTI comes right back at’cha with another impressive remix, this time of fellow New Yorkers, Chícos. While LEFTI’s Big Data remix channeled more of an Electro Pop/Funk sound, his remix of Chícos not only ups the tempo but the boogie factor as well. From the cosmic opening groove to the stinging closing guitar rips, LEFTI’s remix of “Hooked” is non-stop brilliance.
If you ask any electronic music fan who has been into the scene since the mid to late 2000s, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who wasn’t a fan of the Electro/French Disco sound that defined that era. Fast forward to 2015 and we find Brooklyn producer LEFTI paying homage to the big sound of that glorious era. LEFTI’s remix of “The Business of Emotion” by Big Data takes that pulsating Electro Disco sound and modernizes it with a dash of feel good Electronic Pop. Paying tribute to an era of music while still making it modern & fresh is not an easy task. But LEFTI delivers a fantastic remix that surely stands on its own (and one that will make those who longed for the genre-defining sounds of Yuksek, Justice & The Twelves to return very happy). Primetime remix.
