Alex Metric continues to impress with a new remix of Empire of the Sun revealed today via his Soundcloud. Following up a successful pair of releases including his collaboration with Jacques Lu Cont titled “Safe With You” and a top remix for Foals‘ “Bad Habit,” Metric hits us with a feel-good remix of “DNA,” bringing me back to a 2008/2009 Indie Dance era. Not sure if this is official or not, but it should be. √+
Once dubbed by the holy Pete Tong as “Brazil’s answer to Daft Punk,” the latin synth lords are at it again with almost an hour of music for the already famous Solé Bicycles: Fixtape Series. This tape in particular is a great collection of italio-disco with heavy synth chords, jazzy percussion, and funky basslines. I feel like I’m in a late 80s dancehall taking crazy pills and wearing pants that match the wallpaper in your grandma’s bathroom; which is a GREAT thing. As always, the production & selection onfthe mix is sublime. Thank you, The Twelves, we’re always itching for more.

Additionally, The EP features a tropical B-side re-dub from Light Echo, an Indie Dance remix from POPGANG records bosses, Manics; and a blissed out deep cut from Fritz Carlton to close out the release. Listen below and pick up the EP today on Beatport!

Boston based trio, SPF 5000, recently released the “Make Love To Me EP” + Remixes on Knight Time Records and I’ve literally been grooving to it all night. The original is a hot slice of disco dance meets electro pop with amazing suggestive vocals that just beg you to get down and dirty. And the remixes are equally dope, with my favorite being the darker techno stylings of the Galactic Nights Raw Remix. Get on it!
Another week brings you another set of 10 free downloads from us at GDD, but this time around it’s the always tasteful aRod, and myself, Toks, on Dirt duty for our 126th edition. As per usual, we have a little something for everyone, so head after the jump to grab some quality music to compliment your weekend – we know you’ll need it.
Night Drive are a duo whose name perfectly encapsulates not only their sound but also their mission. Their sound is a non-stop expedition into the future of electro pop. And if recalibrating the future of electro pop is their mission, then the future looks bright (neon bright). On their new track, “Sea of Light”, Night Drive fuse together all the right elements of disco, electro + new wave to create another plush piece of future electro pop. To help lend a hand to the mission, Night Drive have also enlisted another agent, Treasure Fingers, whose remix expedition takes us on a dreamy, retro-futuristic synth pop ride.
Additional “Sea of Light” remixes by Justin Faust, Kulkid and Elektromekanik will be out August 27th followed by the release of their self titled debut EP on September 3rd via Robot Dance Records. And don’t miss out on their U.S. tour with Tesla Boy, Gold Fields and Rush Midnight (dates listed below).
In the meantime, catch a glimpse of the future…
Another month, and another fixtape from our friends over at Solé Bicycles. This time they chose French Horn Rebellion to head the tape. They are two brothers that were born in Milwaukee & currently reside in Brooklyn. When Robert told the Chicago Civic Orchestra to F off, he created French Horn Rebellion and decided to lay down his own funky beats instead. It was a great move, as the sounds speak for themselves. This tape is very intricate & lively. There is never a dull moment, nor an instrument forgotten. We can’t wait to see what the boys come up with next. Now speed off into the future and get immersed in the weird, weird world around you.
Australia’s RÜFÜS have released a preview for the first single off their upcoming debut record, ATLAS, packed with all the essential down under vibes that have boosted their name into the dance music scene. If this jazzy driving dance tune is any indication as to what the finished album will sound like, the sounds of summer will be bottled up perfectly in 11 track fashion. For those who want more than just the anticipatory snippet, “Sundream” is available in it’s entirety for those who pre-order their freshmen LP on iTunes although the U.S. store does not currently carry the project yet.
