So Good To Me was easily considered one of the top tracks of 2012 and a prominent force that brought Chris Malinchak new fans across the globe. Since its first release back in October (official release was May 5th), not many producers have attempted to reconstruct this classic into their own. This notion changed though when the UK up-and-comer, Ejeca, dropped his free remix earlier this week. His version reworks the original vocals into a chopped up, jackin house club remix. Don’t sleep on this one or any tunes from Ejeca!
Yesterday, our good mate Doorly put together an 80-minute guest mix for us, featuring a handful of tunes we had never heard before. One of these tunes happened to be the closing track of the mix — a track called “disappearer” under a brand new project, Avec, consisting of Doorly and fellow UK producer, Dave Spoon (aka Shadow Child). “disappeared” is laden with piano and has an uplifting Disco House vibe to it. Oh ya, and did I mention that they brought in Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears for vocals? Yes, they did. And yes, it’s as good as you’d expect from these 3 together. Out on Southern Fried Records soon. √+
Our boys, Thee Cool Cats, are always putting in work when it comes to making music. With an array of releases forthcoming this summer, they’ve pulled another track out of the vault to give away! What It Do is another one of their classic G-House stompers with a bassline guaranteed to keep your body grooving. Keep it locked on their soundcoud page and enjoy the free tune!
