Australian artists RÜFÜS had a big year in 2012 and have been hard at work completing their debut album to ensure that 2013 will be an even bigger year for them. The first track off the newly completed album is entitled “Take Me”, with fellow country mate Cassian on remix duty. Deep indie dance vibes + soaring vocals create a sweeping soundscape sure to glide effortlessly across many dance floors in Australia and beyond.
My favorite psych-rock experimental group is at it again. American Royalty just released their highly anticipated EP entitled Prismatic, on Guns in the Sun Records, and it is quite the harmonious gem with sweeping sound waves and infectious hooks. No 2 songs alike, each spectacularly different and moving in their own way. The music depth and versatility is extremely apparent in this album, and apparent upon your first listen. I’m confident you’ll be back for much more.
Quote by American Royalty regarding the track “Hungry”:
“Hungry is one of the first songs that we ever wrote in a live setting rather than a studio. We’re very excited about the way its transitioned into a recorded number, but honestly for us, its always been about that heavy bass hitting you in the chest. So turn it up.”

Solé Bicycle Co. is pleased to present this month’s Fixtape, from LA’s own,Oliver, the electro-funk super group of Oliver Goldstein & Vaughn Oliver.

Our man in Mexico, disco + house producer Bufi, has quite the portfolio of remixes. On those remixes, his diversity shines through. Whether it’s dark disco (Little Dragon), slo-mo house (Goldroom) or a proper club tune (Hot Chip) you seek, Bufi has got you covered. This time around Bufi has a go at another compadre of ours, Viceroy. Released in late January, “Dream of Bombay” (featuring the lovely vocals of Chela), is Viceroy at his finest. Bufi takes the disco-electro, new wave sound of the original & punches it into hyperspace – interstellar disco + Hawaiian shirts in space!
