“This time around, I wanted that shit to sound tough, crisp — and fucking massive,” big words from the legend Mark Ronson who’s latest album “Uptown Special” is sure to live up to the self induced hype. Enlisting a Pulitzer Prize winning novelist to assist in the lyrical division, as well as a legion of critically acclaimed musicians and talent Ronson himself drove down to Mississippi to discover/acquire will surely assist in the imminent success of this project. If you’re going to do something, you mine as well fucking do it, it would seem. Among the deep roster of talent Ronson has enlisted is Kevin Parker of Tame Impala fame, a talent which made the cut for three seperate appearances on the record. The result, as embedded below, is not quite full quality, but certainly worth the listen. It is a driving psychedelic journey with influences rooted in the American South and and post funk movements that paint a pretty heavy picture. Hear for yourself..
Slowly transition into fall with me as the days become shorter and bodies become warmer. Ride down the coastline with chills down your spine as the tasty licks, insatiable riffs, and melodic choruses course through your veins. Always enjoy in good company and welcome what lies ahead with open arms.
Respect the Indian Solstice, its older and wiser than we are!

Hot off the heels of his Here With Me remix, Bearson isn’t wasting time, returning today with a new remix of Venice by Alternative band The Lighthouse and the Whaler. Captivating the lead singer’s soothing vocals on his latest remix, Bearson’s edit gives the original an airy, tropical vibe. Bearson once again puts his signature sound on the original, creating something you’re guaranteed to fall in love with. With a hit original collaboration with FlicFlac and an astronomyy remix airing on BBC Radio 1, it’s safe to say Bearson is definitely one to watch.
Dr. Fresch is back with a club ready rework of Nelly Furtado and Timbaland’s classic “Promiscuous.” Dr. Fresch’s injects his unique blend of deep, trap, and bass into this remix to bring the pop hit into the context of contemporary future music:
“It’s been way too long since I heard ‘Promiscuous’ played out in the club – I had to give the track a facelift so I could start dropping it in my sets and bring the heat back. The project clicked for me instantly, because of how the vocals lent themselves to be remixed from both a deep approach and a future approach as well. I’m excited to hear this one played out!” – Dr. Fresch
As a kid, I grew up on hair metal, so when I heard that ROOM8 did a cover of Cinderella’s 1986 ballad “Nobody’s Fool”, excitement (and curiosity) levels were high. ROOM8 did not disappoint with their daring remix featuring the stylish vocals of Jesika Miller and much welcomed guitar work of Giorgio Moroder guitarist Richie Zito. The collaboration hits on all levels, taking the glam rock classic & turning it into a modern piece of sci-fi electrofunk that Mr. Moroder himself would be damn proud of.
BONUS – ORIGINAL FROM 1986:
Our pals, French Horn Rebellion, just released their summer mixtape and suffice it to say, they never disappoint. Let the delicious vibes carry you through the week. Keep your eyes peeled for their upcoming US tour accompanied by Zak Waters; you won’t want to miss it.
SNBRN returns with a clever twist of Mark Morrisons crowd-pleasing hit “Return of the Mack.” With a warm bassline and a plethora of live instruments, SNBRN’s signature sheen turns the original into an irresistible dance remix.
“So, I’m back up in the game…with a brand new remix of one of my all time favorite songs. There hadn’t been a remix in years and decided to give this thee old SNBRN touch. With tons of live instruments and a nice warm bassline this track is sure to keep you dancing from the pool to the club all summer long.”
Funkmaster, Ghosts of Venice, has taken on Mystery Skulls‘ dark synth jam, “Paralyzed,” for a remix release on Warner Bros Records — transforming the shadowy, vocal-driven original into a sunlit spot flush with twangy guitar riffs and 80s-inspired synth work. The new look from Ghosts of Venice highlights his ability to see elements of a song that mesh well with his individual style (in this case it’s Mystery Skulls’ glossy vocals) while incorporating a new repertoire of components that launch “Paralyzed” into an entirely new realm of dance music.
Listen first below and pick up the remix package out on WBR tomorrow.
Auxiliary tha Masterfader’s new remix of “Hey Baby” by That Girl With Dark Eyes is modern Electrofunk with a throwback feel, harking back to the Sheila E./Prince glory days (although the backing male vocal seems more The Revolution than Prince). The remix collaboration of Dutch producer Auxiliary tha Masterfader and San Francisco producer That Girl With Dark Eyes came to fruition after the pair bonded over a love of analog equipment. This intercontinental love fest proves that funk knows no boundaries. Oh hey baby…
