Queens, NY producer Dart Party is releasing a new single today on the recently formed Crazy Heart Records (founded by fellow New Yorkers Ghost Beach).  The track is titled “Going My Way” & the sound perfectly captures the spirit of the label.  It contains elements of Disco, House & Electro done with gritty, New York style.  The production is crisp & polished but the attitude is bold & retro.  Before Disco got all soft & bubbly post-2010, artists like Grum, Lifelike & Yuksek were championing an edgy brand of Disco that defined the coolness of that glorious Bloghaus era (circa 2009/10).  Dart Party carries that same attitude into the present day with his own brand of cool on “Going My Way”.  If you like your dance floor songs served with some attitude, then get on board with Dart Party.

“Going My Way” is out TODAY via Crazy Heart Records. [iTunes]

Not too many producers have a remix resume like Stuart Price.  Whether it’s under his given name or his Jacques Lu Cont/Thin White Duke/Paper Faces monikers (to name a few), Mr. Price has put together some of dance music’s best remixes over the last 15+ years.  His stretch of remixes in 2002 to 2003 when he remixed Felix da Housecat, The Faint & Madonna b2b2b has to be considered one of the greatest ever.  Over a decade after that unparalleled stretch, he still has the magic touch delivering another finely crafted remix of London Grammar’s “If You Wait” under his Jacques Lu Cont alias.  In classic JLC style, he reels you in with pulsating beats & soaring vocals then elevates the energy levels for a heart racing, heart melting finish.

Euphoria levels: HIGH.

Alex Metric.  Such a well rounded chap.  In 2014 alone, he’s given us bounce House bangers like “Hope” & “My Heart Weighs A Ton”, he’s made us feel the groove with Oliver on “Galaxy” and he’s taken us intergalactic on his Electro/Disco/House collaborations with Yuksek (under their moniker The Alexanders).  Today he’s back, building up some of that old Indie street cred with a brand new remix of “Games for Girls” by Say Lou Lou.  It’s fun times on the dance floor on this Indie Electro remix & proof that when it comes to genres, Alex Metric knows no limits.  A well round chap, indeed.

As a kid, I grew up on hair metal, so when I heard that ROOM8 did a cover of Cinderella’s 1986 ballad “Nobody’s Fool”, excitement (and curiosity) levels were high.  ROOM8 did not disappoint with their daring remix featuring the stylish vocals of Jesika Miller and much welcomed guitar work of Giorgio Moroder guitarist Richie Zito.  The collaboration hits on all levels, taking the glam rock classic & turning it into a modern piece of sci-fi electrofunk that Mr. Moroder himself would be damn proud of.

GLAM HOUSE!

The artwork for the new single “Don’t Tell” by Mansions on the Moon perfectly encapsulates what it feels like when listening to the brand new track: it’s like floating through a turquoise/hot pink sky on a bed of cotton candy clouds.  It’s a celestial, euphoric Disco Pop, alterna-lectro tune that sets the table nicely for what the band has to offer in the very near future.  Mansions on the Moon will be releasing their self titled debut album this Fall.  And, if “Don’t Tell” is any indication on what the album has in store, then excitement levels are sky high.

Be sure to check out the information below on the band’s partnership with PledgeMusic:

Dr. Fresch_Hella Good_Artwork-FINAL

Dr. Fresch is back with another feel good remix of a 90′s classic; this time he’s bringing summer along with a fresch new take on No Doubt‘s “Hella Good.” In his own words, I chose to remix Hella Good because it was one of my favorite pop songs growing up and no one has touched the track recently. The original song (as an entire piece) does not breathe summer, however, both the lyrics and vocal melody do. Because the vocals held this feel-good quality, I was able to reinterpret the song within the context of forward thinking electronic music; remaining true to the Dr. Fresch brand by giving the remix a tropical club makeover. I want my “Hella Good” remix to be a Summer anthem!

this my shit

Sometimes a quick shout out on social media can go a long way.  Yesterday our friends over at Harder Blogger Faster Tweeted four simple words: “This is very good”.  The Tweet was accompanied by a link to The Beatangers remix of “This My Shit” by Nikitin.  And now, here we are posting about it.  If you like a song, say something about it.  The repost button on SoundCloud, a YouTube link on Facebook or a simple Tweet…these things can go a long way.

The remix package for “This My Shit” is a stellar one with remixes by Kolombo, Sammy W & Alex E and L.O.O.P.  The personal stand out for me is The Beatangers remix.  It’s a dirty combination of Indie-Electro & G-House, giving the song a Blog House feel harking back to a sound that mid-2000s Tiga perfected & late-2000s Grum ran away with.

“This My Shit” remix pack is out now via LouLou Records.

Looking for a bit harder indie-electro version of The Knock’s catchy anthem ‘Comfortable’? Well, look no further. Ben Negative has put his personal spin on the track, receiving heavy support from The Knocks boys themselves. Listen to this one with headphones; your puny labtop won’t do the roaring, rolling bass any justice.
