The anticipation for the new Daft Punk album was finally overflown last week with the itunes stream debuting and spreading like wildfire across the blogosphere. The SF disco dons WhiteNoize got their hands on a copy and made a great party blend of “Give Life Back To Music” with Ellie Goulding‘s melodic vocals from “Lights”. The outcome is a summer secret weapon similar to the crowd pleasing factor of Aeroplane vs. Flight Facilities – “I Crave Paris”, grab them both below!

Our LA friends Oliver and Thee Mike B did a funky new update on the Blondie classic “Heart Of Glass”, paying homage to the golden tune and also not a bad way to groove into the summer vibes… here’s what they had to say:
“We wanted to give something away when we hit 10K on Twitter. This one is for all the fans and DJs that have supported us, we love you! This is a record that we grew up with as children so we wanted to keep it classic, and groovy. Hope you enjoy it!”
Our friends at Prep School Recordings continue their introductions with breakthrough artist The Supertraxxe, releasing their new single “Can’t Believe It” today for FREE via their soundcloud.

By now we all know the hype is real for Daft Punk‘s forthcoming album Random Access Memories. With all the remixes and bootlegs surfacing from the first single “Get Lucky,” our DTLA friend and chief of Prep School Recordings known as Dr. Fresch has chosen the scenic route and given us a vibey downtempo version of the interstellar classic “Something About Us.” Hop on this groove train quick
Gentlemen Hall‘s “Sail Into The Sun” has not only infiltrated radio by being the backdrop to Samsung and Target commercials…its also become a bonafide Summer anthem. With cheery lyrics and a laid back attitude, it’s hard to not imagine bikinis and lakeside bonfires with this on in the background.
Three Chicago artists take a stab at the track on two separate remixes – Dani Deahl & Animale turn the track into a main room blitzer with Dutch-like synths that rise into a crescendo. It’s countered by blithe breakdowns with the plinking music-box sounds from the original and uplifting melodies, but it doesn’t stay silent for long. Expect to hear this one on the summer festival circuit, notably Dani’s performance @ EDC Chicago!
Chicago’s Sam Padrul capitalizes on the track’s breezy qualities and shifts it into a nu-disco jam. Replete with lush chords and dripping with funk, Padrul eschewed most of the supplied stems, opting to just use the vocals while writing all his own instrumentation. Catch a summer vibe on this one…
The Knocks straight outta Brooklyn keep delivering the heat. Their previous single ‘Modern Hearts’ off their upcoming album topped the hypeM charts only to be followed up with a remix by none other than Los Angeles’ golden child, Goldroom. Josh adds some amazing euphoric chords under the silky smooth vocals of St. Lucia. This one will be on repeat for pool parties everywhere. Be on the lookout for tons of new Knocks material to be announced soon!
