Sundays always put me in a sway of classic tune-age, and who could attest the righteousness of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams.” Something about those infamous vocals from Stevie Nicks that you can’t help but groove to – and with the help of some familiar remixers, the track has been dusted off and revived once more! Among the many renditions out there, I have for you a sampler of my favorites; including versions by Flight Facilities, Gigamesh, Dave Edwards and Megaman & Panic City. Each of them radiate their own unique vibe, while still carrying the spirit of the original. Listen and download them all below!

Knightlife’s brand of disco is one that I’ve always been on board with. It’s certainly not the typical disco sound that seems to have run its course over the last 3-4 years. Knightlife’s brand of futuristic disco is diverse and ever-changing; French House, deep electro + club house disco are just a few of the ways to describe the brilliant sounds that Knightlife has delivered over the past several years. His brand new single, “Without Love”, is more futuristic disco bad-assery - killer Moroder vibes and sexy, soaring vocals by serial collaborator AP make this track equally dynamic on the dancefloor as it is in the bedroom.
With a new album on the horizon, expect big things from Knightlife in 2013. Meanwhile, “Without Love” is out NOW via Cutters Records.
Just looking at this photo of Jessie Ware & Joe Goddard (Hot Chip/The 2 Bears) in a studio is enough to get any music lover excited. The two brilliant artists were captured in the studio together working on his remix of her track “Night Light”. As utterly fantastic as the finished product is (a stunning, dancefloor storming, deep electro remix), the video of Miss Ware & Mr. Goddard in the studio is equally amazing to watch. Sit back and enjoy the video below as you catch a rare glimpse of an artist and remixer coming together to share ideas on a remix. Then, after the video, stand up and dance.
It’s fitting that on a day when the Space Shuttle Endeavour embarks on its farewell tour through California, a track like “September” by St. Lucia takes flight through the blogosphere. ”September” is the stunning first track off St. Lucia’s new album and, like The Endeavour, the song is a cosmic journey that is out of this world. ”September” pulsates and builds into an atmospheric anthem complete with soaring vocals & Lil Louis “French Kiss” vibes. This track is light years ahead of everything out right now. And with remixes by Punks Jump Up & Alex Metric coming out with the original, there will be no stopping “September”.

Over the years, Au Revoir Simone and Aeroplane have been a formidable tag team, whether it’s Aeroplane giving the remix treatment to the band or the girls lending their vocals to an Aeroplane original. Their most notable collaboration was the classic rework of “Paris” by Friendly Fires. This time around we have Aeroplane contributing a remix (with additional production & mixing by Martin Dubka) for Erika Spring, a solo project of Au Revoir Simone member Erika Forster. The remix is for the tune “Happy At Your Gate” and the result is another classic. The formula of deep electrodisco plus sultry, ethereal vocals is a winning combination…just like Vito + Erika.
