Just in time for Private Label this Friday at Lure, Du Tonc has returned with an amazing new single!! “Island” perfectly captures a summery Balearic sound with an added does of Indie with Matt Van Schie’s gorgeous vocals.
I. Love. Blende.
Out yesterday on Win Music, “Rikki” has huge vocals, disco grooves and a feel good vibe that I just don’t feel often enough in music anymore. This is the type of song that everyone on the dancefloor drunkenly sings along to at 2 am and you put on repeat during roadtrips with your best friend. If music like Blende’s was on the radio…I might actually listen to the radio. Instant classic and my new disco anthem for fall.
If there’s anyone who knows how to disco, it’s DCUP. Melbourne’s DCUP returns with another slice of infectious power disco entitled “Don’t Be Shy” featuring the always fantastic Mereki. Mereki’s vocals are an excellent match with DCUP’s production style. Her vocal style on “Don’t Be Shy” is a nod to throwback New Wave R&B artists like Exposé & Nu Shooz. The track also blends in elements of classic disco along with modern day disco & house making “Don’t Be Shy” a red hot, can’t miss dance track.

Today we’ve got the premiere of Luke Million’s shiny new remix of “Deja Vu” by Moullinex. Luke Million remixing Moullinex is almost too much for our electroselves to handle. It’s a big room electro disco sound that harks back to a time before nu disco was even a thing…a time when this style of pulsating, driving dance music dominated our lives (a la 2009 era Grum & Lifelike). It’s a welcomed sound free of fluff but full of energy. We welcome this “Deja Vu” with open arms.
And if we can talk about Mr. Luke Million for a second (I mean, c’mon…that hair is certainly worth a mention just on its own) – be on the lookout for his upcoming “Midnight Galaxy” EP featuring two original tracks plus remixes by Poupon, Den Hetrix, Pete Herbert and the aforementioned Grum.
Once dubbed by the holy Pete Tong as “Brazil’s answer to Daft Punk,” the latin synth lords are at it again with almost an hour of music for the already famous Solé Bicycles: Fixtape Series. This tape in particular is a great collection of italio-disco with heavy synth chords, jazzy percussion, and funky basslines. I feel like I’m in a late 80s dancehall taking crazy pills and wearing pants that match the wallpaper in your grandma’s bathroom; which is a GREAT thing. As always, the production & selection onfthe mix is sublime. Thank you, The Twelves, we’re always itching for more.

For anyone still hating on Skream because he’s not making only Dubstep anymore, shut up. Just shut the fuck up. His new track, “Rollercoaster,” just premiered today with Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1, featuring Sam Frank and a vibe that is 100% fit for a cocaine-sponsored 80s roller disco. “Rollercoaster” illuminates two important things about Skream: 1) his inherent ability to accept inspiration from multiple sources and create music in all forms and 2) his ballsy-ness for just doing what he wants to do musically. Big up Ollie we’re down with it. √+
All Dom Wrong is the newest solo project from New York based DJ, producer and Plant Music Label owner Dominque Keegan. Last month he released this soulful homage to 90′s house with amazing vocalist Amy Douglas and we don’t know how we missed it! The 6 track EP features 5 great remixes from Aashton & Swift, Trap Avoid and Kasper Bjorke plus two dope dubs, make sure to grab it here!
Boston based trio, SPF 5000, recently released the “Make Love To Me EP” + Remixes on Knight Time Records and I’ve literally been grooving to it all night. The original is a hot slice of disco dance meets electro pop with amazing suggestive vocals that just beg you to get down and dirty. And the remixes are equally dope, with my favorite being the darker techno stylings of the Galactic Nights Raw Remix. Get on it!
