Fresh off his remix of Big Data, LEFTI comes right back at’cha with another impressive remix, this time of fellow New Yorkers, Chícos. While LEFTI’s Big Data remix channeled more of an Electro Pop/Funk sound, his remix of Chícos not only ups the tempo but the boogie factor as well. From the cosmic opening groove to the stinging closing guitar rips, LEFTI’s remix of “Hooked” is non-stop brilliance.
Coming in hot with the second single from their Variety Pack EP, Bee’s Knees returns with “Keeper”. Following the release of their indie inspired track “Rumored To Be”, the Los Angeles duo’s latest takes on a more AC Slater-esque, bass route. Incorporating vocals from Chuck Inglish & Buddy, “Keeper” is full of strong summer vibes and a head bobbing beat. Consisting of Aaron Spiro and Adam Novodor, it’s amazing these two started their careers only a year ago after graduating from Icon Collective. Currently on tour with Kill Paris, check to see if Bee’s Knees is coming to your town. Grab a free download here!

Manila Killa displays his eclectic taste in music and diverse production skills successfully breathing a new life to the original mix.

Nothing Bee’s Knees touches is ever ordinary. A relatively new act, the dynamic duo kick off the countdown to their up-coming EP with a new single. Titled “Rumored To Be Real”, the original fuses various styles and genres into one. Featuring vocals from Marty Rod, the track floats into electric keys underlying hypnotic vocals which fuse into a groovy bass line. Harmonies and echoing give the intro an ambient vibe, only to drop into Chromeo-esque guitar chords and an almost robotic tone. Escaping into a fantasy world, it’s amazing these two have time to release new music while they kick off their nationwide tour with Kill Paris. The release marks first taste of their soon to be released Variety Pack EP, it’s safe to say that we can’t wait to hear the rest. Grab your Free Download of “Rumored To Be Real” here!

As down tempo music is on the rise, the term ‘ambient’ and ‘melodic’ is thrown around so often it has almost lost its meaning. With that being said, it wasn’t until now I found a song that truly encompassed the definition of ambient. Brought to you from our favorite bass connoisseur, Kill Paris returns today with his latest original “You Don’t Love Me No More”. Following up his release “Space Forest”, the second track from his forthcoming album is smooth, sweet and has just enough funk. Keeping in time with the outer space theme, the bass-centric tune soothes the soul as it glides through wavy synths and calming instrumentations. His album “Galaxies Between Us” is set to be released off the ultra talented producer’s own label “Sexy Electric” on April 14th. Check out the stream and grab the free download below.
Penguin Prison’s latest single “Never Gets Old” just received the remix treatment from fellow New Yorkers Solidisco. The remix takes the original’s nostalgic, Funk Pop feel & steers it in a bouncier direction while still maintaining its throwback vibe. The result is a sound that has 80s movie montage written all over it. Not so much a training sequence a la “Rocky IV” or “Bloodsport” but more along the lines of something more fun like “Real Genius” or “Revenge of the Nerds”. Except, instead of it being a study montage or a let’s-turn-this-house-into-a-proper-frat, house cleaning montage, it’s the part of the movie where the nerdy kid turns cool & he’s at the height of his popularity. The montage is him & The Hot Girl doing various fun activities & ends with them walking into the school dance & tearing up the dance floor as the entire gymnasium gazes at them in awe. Boy spins girl in slow motion aaaaand fade out…
Fun times from the Solidisco crew!
“Never Gets Old” is out NOW via Downtown Records [iTunes]
Sporadically pumping out releases over the last year, SYRE is an expert at flying just under the radar. Marking his 10th original, Dmitriy Burenok (aka SYRE) newest creation upholds his long line of fire releases. Titled “Burn”, the track starts with unexpected ping pong sounds that eloquently segue into wavy synths, guitar slides and Kendra Dias’ smooth vocals. Adopted by Next Wave Records, be sure to grab your free copy of “Burn” here. Enjoy!
Music industry mogul Sean Glass has released his debut production in the form of a Robert Delong remix. While this is Sean’s first dip into music released under his own musical brand he is no stranger to the electronic music community. Sean is the brains behind Win Music whose debut release of Duke Dumont’s “Need U 100%” last year earned a Grammy nomination and chart topping positions across the globe. His disco infused remix of “Long Way Down” is an impressive start to a series of self-branded tracks coming this spring. Stream the tune below and be on the lookout for the full remix package coming March 31st on Glassnote Records.
Modern day Electro Pop queen Jess Glynne gets the remix treatment from Le Youth on her latest single “Hold My Hand”. The remix package for “Hold My Hand” is stellar with additional remixes by MJ Cole & Chris Lake (the latter was featured HERE last week on GDD). Le Youth slices up the original & delivers a glittery House music hoedown. Le Youth’s remix offers up nothing but feel-goods with its steady dose of bouncing piano & well placed vocal chops. It’s the perfect track to post on the first day of the equinox…Spring begins NOW.
