Nu Disco

bees knees

Bee’s Knees are one of the grooviest duos in the production world right now, and it seems like they keep getting better with every track.  Their latest is a nu-disco killer featuring the seductive vocals of Monogem and a super serious saxophone sample.  The instrumental melody invokes a feeling of the laidback jazz vibe, then the disco-inspired synths turn things up a notch.  Download the track for free here.

After dropping his remix of Oh Wonder’s “Lose It” last month, Jerry Folk is back with a new original for those in need of a nu-disco groove. On “Futura,” Jerry fuses an array of synths, keys, edited vocal samples, and a driving rhythm for a smooth jam that evokes memories of a care-free drive down PCH in the summertime. Listen below and download it here.

Ney York-based Gibbz is at it again with a groovy little number.  “Love Again” is a soothing nu-disco draped piece featuring some really nice vocals.  A bit of incendiary guitar pokes through near the end of the tune, offering a nice balance of sound.  This one is off of the “Chardonnay” EP, which you can grab on iTunes here.

Electro-pop virtuoso Gibbz (real name Mike Gibney) got his start in the industry as a full time audio engineer. That path led him to work for a crew that went on to form the Lowtemp record label, founded by Gramatik. They “convinced [me] that it’s OK to drink copious amounts of alcohol and make everyone within a 30 ft radius uncomfortable,” he joked of the project’s genesis. “Out of [that] drunken, obnoxious, offensive mess of a man, GIBBZ was born.”
 
Earlier this summer Gibbz shared “I Found You,” an ode to summer romance and the first track off his upcoming Chardonnay EP. Today Gibbz reveals a second single “Love Again,” a strong follow up and a track with dense layers of synths that swirl together in a daze. So kick back, press play, and imagine you’re on a beach twirling away. “Love Again” is served best with a little (imaginary) sea salt in the air.
 
Gibbz’s Chardonnay EP will be out later this month on July 24th via Ghost Beach’s Crazy Heart Records.

Goldroom has been evolving like crazy over the past year.  With the rolling out of his live act, as well as the huge reception of his tunes, this project is becoming massive.  Arguably his most popular tune, “Embrace” is definitely a crowd favorite, and he’s just released a new version with George Maple on vocals.  The two actually had originally the track together, so what we’re really hearing is the track coming to fruition.  Such a beautiful track, make sure to buy it below.

“Getting the chance to release music through Snapchat gave me the perfect opportunity to show everyone the version of Embrace that I’ve always heard in my head. George Maple and I actually wrote Embrace together, so having this come full circle, and to have her singing on the song, feels like a dream.”

Our LA familiars Graff recently got the call to remix Norwegian Lindstrom and delivered a brilliant nu-disco spirited version of “Home Tonight” – they we’re delighted not only because of the vibe but the opportunity to rep home turf! Here’s what they had to say…

Antone and I were asked to do an official remix for Lindstrom and it’s coming out on his remix package this spring. We were super thrilled as this is right up our alley. It’s also cool for our little LA scene as those Scandavians (terje, lindstrom, prins thomas) have always sort of kept it pretty european… this is a rare instance of getting USA involved nonetheless some LA bros like us 😉

Also check out their new 100 Minutes In A Hot Air Balloon mix, packed with jams to keep your spring sprung.

Having done awesome remix/cover work on tracks from Miami Horror and Mapei — to name a few — Happy Accidents is quickly becoming a house favorite.  Today, they dropped not one, but two freebies for us to check out.  The first is a cover of Blur’s classic track “Sing.”  An awesome synth pop arrangement works perfectly with the airy vocals, making for a really nice version.  To top that off, Happy Accidents also dropped an hour long “Songs We Like” mix, which somehow manages to cram 44 of their favorite nu-disco gems together. Big things from their camp, stream and download both sounds below!
