From the hills of Navarre, Spain, the Basque trio dubbed Crystal Fighters continuously releases quality , energetic folktronica, and the first taste of their forthcoming sophomore album enticingly wets the palate for what is to come. The single “You & I” came out a couple of weeks ago via the group’s Soundcloud. It’s a joyous production, heavily influenced by live instruments and flowing uptempo vocals, and undoubtedly provides that ever-approaching summertime feel. GDD™ favorite Gigamesh has tried his hand at remixing the fantastic original, adding in a flickering, Kavinsky-esque synth — giving the track a much more electronic feel.

Du Tonc seems to be a match made in heaven, and we’re excited for their debut tour here in the US this summer. Listen below and find tour schedule after the jump. √+

The sound of Le Youth transcends the overly familiar brands of tropical/deep/nu disco sounds we’ve been over exposed to over the last few years.

His latest remix of “Fade” by Jakwob balances that disco/house sound brilliantly. Whether it’s billowing through the speakers at a club & filling the room with joy or sweeping over the sands of a beach party, Le Youth’s remix of “Fade” will keep any party going, daytime or night.
