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.

The sounds of Los Angeles are strong on the new remix from L.A. producer BetaTraxx for L.A. duo Pr0files on their song “Forgive”. Pr0files once described the city of Los Angeles as sunny & twisted. The same can be said to describe this phenomenal remix by BetaTraxx. While the hypnotizing vocals give the song its shine, it’s the rework by BetaTraxx that gives the song its twisted, zombie Disco persona. The crisp, multi-layered production by BetaTraxx takes pieces of 90s, bass heavy Chemical Brothers, dirty, late-2000s Kavinsky & modern day Oliver-style Electro and molds them all together for one extra filthy remix. Crank this one all the way up & cruise around L.A. with the top down (while wearing all black, of course…because that’s the sunny & twisted thing to do).

Not too many producers have a remix resume like Stuart Price. Whether it’s under his given name or his Jacques Lu Cont/Thin White Duke/Paper Faces monikers (to name a few), Mr. Price has put together some of dance music’s best remixes over the last 15+ years. His stretch of remixes in 2002 to 2003 when he remixed Felix da Housecat, The Faint & Madonna b2b2b has to be considered one of the greatest ever. Over a decade after that unparalleled stretch, he still has the magic touch delivering another finely crafted remix of London Grammar’s “If You Wait” under his Jacques Lu Cont alias. In classic JLC style, he reels you in with pulsating beats & soaring vocals then elevates the energy levels for a heart racing, heart melting finish.
Euphoria levels: HIGH.
Since it is technically a Thursday, what better song to do a throwback with than one of the biggest songs of the Bloghaus era: “Rave Is King” by Fukkk Offf. Back in 2008, “Rave Is King” was dirtying up dance floors everywhere…whether it was a house party or an illegal warehouse, if you got a chance to chant the chorus to “Rave Is King” then your night was considered a success. Fast forward to 2014 where excitement levels are electric as this Bloghaus classic gets revisited. Fukkk Offf themselves offer up a sinister new re-edition of the track while Moonbootica, Modek, aUtOdiDakT & PWNDTIAC each offer up 2014 versions of their own. This motley group of gritty, sleazy, tripped out remixes has something for everyone. IT’S ALCOHOL, DRUGS AND OVERDRIVE ALL OVER AGAIN.
RAVE IS KING.
“Rave Is King” Re-edition/Remixes are out now [BUY].

I’ve always been a massive fan of Miike Snow and will never forget seeing them at Coachella back in 2012. Well, Christan has seemed to do what almost no one has done before, and play Coachella with 2 different groups. The latter being his new project with Style of Eye, entitled Galantis. For those that do not know, Galantis is a super group from Sweden with big room electro on the palate. Definitely hints of the infectious hooks we got so accustomed to back in the Miike Snow days. Don’t miss these guys out in the desert this weekend, as they put on quite a show!
See them Saturday 9:35 – 1035 at the Gobi Stage
