Our friends over at Sole Bicycles Co. have teamed up with Aussie lords, Miami Horror, to feature one hell of a remix contest. The winner will not only receive a custom 1 of 1 Miami Horror X Solé Bicycle, but will also be officially featured on the gang’s digital release on their Remix EP.

Gotta absolutely love it when our buddies, The knocks, fresh and hot out of Brooklyn drop a brand spankin’ new original. This track is amazing. It’s quite funky, dancy, and reminiscent of old school Prince. Thats definitely a recipe for a tasty jam. The EP and Single will be available Feb. 18th on Neon Gold Records, so make sure you don’t miss it! In the meantime grab the limited edition 12” vinyl available for presale now HERE
Our friends over at Solé Bicycles just dropped off the latest installment of their fixtape series, and by golly we couldn’t wait to get our grubby paws on this one. It’s CLEARLY summer in Australia. Transient and euphoric, yet funky, the vibes will plop you down next to a pile of sand, a water source, and curve the corners of your mouth upward in this month’s fixtape. The Miami Horror boys, based out of Sydney, have really put something special together for us. We can’t stop listening, and we’re not sure if thats because we really like it, or because these tones are quite mesmerizing. Probably both. Most tracks are easy to listen to, yet provide just the right amount of funk in your step while the silky smooth vocals elevate the mind and body. Enjoy with a Cocktail. Do less, love more.
Not being able to choose a favorite song from a quality remix package is a good problem to have. On the remix package for his latest song “Same Hearts” (featuring Bear Mountain), Pat Lok presents us with this most glorious of problems. The original is a dreamy, cosmic jam that straddles the line between Deep Disco & House while the remix package offers up a little bit of everything ranging from Indie Funk (Oxford) to Darkside Haus (Shelby Grey) to 80s Disco Funk (Ride The Universe…my personal favorite). And if that’s not enough for you, just ask the experts:
Goldroom: “really like RTU mix and Oxford’s, original is super fun and stands out with an original style”
Mighty Mouse: “love this, all versions great”
Drop Out Orchestra: “The Ride The Universe Remix is fun!”
Cosmo Baker: “Pat Lok does it again. A stomper.”
Cyclist: “Greatest song ever written”
So the experts all agree: Pat has a great package.
If you’re going to put out a proper piece of Disco, make sure you dig deep into your Disco treasure chest to find the right starting point. New York duo Solidisco knew exactly where to look when producing their latest track “Top of the World”. They kept things in the New York family and used the classic label Salsoul Records as their starting point. Salsoul Records are considered by many to be Disco royalty and part of that royal family were NY Funk/Boogie outfit Skyy. Taking a sample from Skyy’s 1980 track “Here’s to You”, Solidisco create a glamorous + infectious Disco House track that will immediately make anyone slip right into happy dance mode. Good luck getting this one out of your head.
