Binary’s newest family member, Touch Tone, has a brand new track out today and the song perfectly encapsulates what we’ve grown to love about Binary over the years: beautifully crafted, multi-textured, dreamy dance music. ”Home Away From Home” captures that Binary sound perfectly with smooth, catchy vocals and piano house flair. It’s a combination of sounds influenced and defined by the late Summer night, downtown LA skyline that has become a symbol for Binary and now, it’s newest addition, Touch Tone.
Earlier this week, UK producers, Futurecop!, released their much anticipated music video for “The Only Way.” Starring members of the Parks and Recreations cast, as well as Jon Lajoie from the hit series “The League,” the video tells the comedic story of a boy who falls in love with a mannequin. A love story behind a backdrop of unicorns, miniature golf, and 1980′s visuals is the perfect compliment for the synth-heavy and dream-inducing melodies of Futurecop!.

French duo, Walter Sobcek, just sent over their newest original production, ‘Hollywood Cries,’ and I have to say that it’s really hitting the spot after a long, party-filled weekend out in the desert for Coachella. Electronic Pop mixed with Dreamwavey guitars is the best way I can explain it, but I’ll let you decide for yourselves. Keep an eye out for these two. Continue Reading

Our good pal Josh Legg, aka Goldroom, continues to raise the bar with another fantastic remix. Goldroom, as well as the equally phenomenal Perseus, have zeroed in on the moodier side of tropical disco and have added a much sexier, dreamier vibe to the genre. Goldroom’s latest remix of Aussie band ALPINE is six minutes of pure bliss. Those moments in life when you first meet someone new and share a couple of glances and a cocktail or two…this is the soundtrack to that scene. Actually, this is the soundtrack to the scene right after that when you both walk out of the lounge hand in hand…
Synth-pop duo, Kids At Midnight, just released their latest EP, Let You Slide, on Monday on Braxe’s Vulture Music. Comprised of two originals, ‘Let You Slide’ and ‘No No Yeah,’ this EP caught the ear of the French Touch master, Alan Braxe, and it’s easy to see why. Light, sweeping synths and melodic vocals from KAM’s Jane Elizabeth Hanley are unbelievably pleasant — making me wish I was on the beach with a tropical drink in Southeastern Australia. Have a listen to my favorite track off of the EP below and grab the exclusive mix ‘Songs For Dancers & Lovers’ after the jump.
