Louis La Roche is not one to dabble in much popular music, so consider it a blessing he decided to funkify this huge single off Calvin Harris‘ most recent album. This dance floor classic was transformed into this french funk tune that is sure to take over your body. It honestly just sounds like he took the vocals and created his own new world for them. It has some nostalgic sounds intermixed with the future funk he’s putting out there as 80′s synths roll into some new vocoder vocals. You’ll be able to pick out a lot of different instruments strung together to complete this record as the attention to detail is impeccable.
Tis the season to get sprung, and I present you an hour’s worth of tunes to usher in this lascivious vibe. My selections hop across genres and delve deep into my musical collection, ranging from Skream to !!! to Classixx.
Best wishes & happy hunting.
It’s always a treat to hear something new from our L.A. compadre Le Youth. The sound of Le Youth transcends the overly familiar brands of tropical/deep/nu disco sounds we’ve been over exposed to over the last few years. Le Youth has created a brand of electronic all his own. It’s a modernized throwback sound that fuses together all the right elements of sunny disco & old school house. His latest remix of “Fade” by Jakwob balances that disco/house sound brilliantly. Whether it’s billowing through the speakers at a club & filling the room with joy or sweeping over the sands of a beach party, Le Youth’s remix of “Fade” will keep any party going, daytime or night.
This is big! Today we bring you a hat trick worth of goodies from our main man Mighty Mouse. First up is Mighty Mouse’s brand new remix of “Love of a Life” by Keljet (feat. X Ambassadors). The ingredients of this tasty treat include a dash of squelchy disco mixed with a big scoop of throwback house all served up and ready to be devoured on the dance floor. And On The Fruit Records is giving this one away as a free tasting…
In light of hitting over 30,000 followers on Facebook, RAC has released an incredible cover of the 1996 hit Lovefool. The song has a contemporary disco feel, while the infections vibes of the original are preserved in the vocals and melody. Take a listen, I can guarantee you’ll be smiling by the end.
C2C is a four member deep french turntable group that has been around since ’98, winning everything from the World DJ Championships for Disco, to the European Border Breakers award in 2013 for best new European music act. With only one official album out in 2012, they have remained relatively quiet on the production front. This remix is for Vitalic’s “Fade Away” EP coming out on March 25th and it features their signature disco bounce and electro edge that creates a sublime environment to let loose and dance to. For those unfamiliar with this group, you might know them best from their track that’s being used on a Dr. Pepper ad running right now, or their name as featured on the Coachella lineup this year.

After a month of anticipation since this anthem debuted on Radio 1, Russ Chimes has leaked the full version on his Soundcloud. The timing of this release is perfect as it is sure to be the cut to kickstart your weekend spirit and take you exactly where you need to go after a long week. At first listen it seems like a very basic track, but that’s because Russ Chimes has stripped it down to the bare essentials. The vocals electrify the bouncing bass line while the four on the floor beat takes you home. Set to be released on Deconstruction/Columbia Records April 29th, it represents his first moves in 2013 following up his hit single “Back 2 You” in 2012.
Oh how I would love to hear Goldroom’s latest track, “Only You Can Show Me”, at Coachella this year. His latest song has disco festival vibes written all over it. Nothing would please me more than walking into the Sahara Tent as the sun is going down and hearing this tune radiating through the crowd. With it’s sweet, airy vocals (courtesy of Mereki), jammin’ percussion and phenomenal disco-meets-big-room breakdown, “Only You Can Show Me” would drive any festival wild.
While Mr. Josh Legg + Co. won’t be playing Coachella this year (we’ll have to leave it up to the DJs at Coachella to play this song), you can still check out Goldroom’s live show happening now through the end of April in the U.S. and Canada.
“Only You Can Show Me” is out NOW.
