Brookyln’s Follow Me step up to the plate to bring you a dance floor amplified rendition of Johnny Stimson‘s funky record, “Daddy’s Money.” The goal was to create something that allowed them to get back to more of an 80′s sound, a sound that originally boosted them into the spotlight. What comes to fruition is a funkadelic track that tells the tale of a burned out female that’s strapped for cash and impossible to please after Daddy’s money runs dry, something Gen. Y’ers are experiencing all to frequently.

Our friends over at the LA based Prep School Recordings welcome back the nu-disco artist SNBRN with his follow up “Sandy Shoes” EP, released today on Beatport. The summery vibe continues with two new original tracks, and this time SNBRN’s bringing vocalists Andrew Farr and Chris Hess of SWIMM along with him. These tracks capture a great way to send off the summer vibes and I’ve personally supported these tracks in sets to match that mood. Check them out below and keep everyones favorite season alive :)

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.

Our bud Goldroom has put together a touching cover of Elliott Smith‘s “St. Ides Heaven” on his Soundcloud today, adding in a bit of Nu Disco feel to the track from the late singer’s 1995 self-titled album.

Goldroom explains, “Elliott Smith is one of my songwriting idols, simple as that. Sometimes I really feel like the emotional songwriting part of music gets a bit lost within the dance music world, which was a big reason I picked this amazing song to cover. I just wanted to try and do my best to honor such a great musician and one of my favorite songs.” Listen and download below.

One of our favorite Aussies Felix Bloxsom aka Plastic Plates has just created another summertime heater in his newest remix for The Aston Shuffle.

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.
