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.
BONUS – ORIGINAL FROM 1986:
Our pals, French Horn Rebellion, just released their summer mixtape and suffice it to say, they never disappoint. Let the delicious vibes carry you through the week. Keep your eyes peeled for their upcoming US tour accompanied by Zak Waters; you won’t want to miss it.
SNBRN returns with a clever twist of Mark Morrisons crowd-pleasing hit “Return of the Mack.” With a warm bassline and a plethora of live instruments, SNBRN’s signature sheen turns the original into an irresistible dance remix.
“So, I’m back up in the game…with a brand new remix of one of my all time favorite songs. There hadn’t been a remix in years and decided to give this thee old SNBRN touch. With tons of live instruments and a nice warm bassline this track is sure to keep you dancing from the pool to the club all summer long.”
Tycho‘s latest album was one for the books. He seems to have matured with time and ripened alongside some very talented musicians that supported his sound on the record. So it only seems natural to have remixers come out of the woodworks in a similar profound fashion. Bibio x Tycho, what an exciting concept, and the tune does not fall short of the possibilities that plagued my mind prior to first listen. The natural bird sounds and faded guitar strums narrate a fantastical daydream that transport you to a simpler time. It’s minimal at it’s finest, because that’s all a song really needs to be.
Funkmaster, Ghosts of Venice, has taken on Mystery Skulls‘ dark synth jam, “Paralyzed,” for a remix release on Warner Bros Records — transforming the shadowy, vocal-driven original into a sunlit spot flush with twangy guitar riffs and 80s-inspired synth work. The new look from Ghosts of Venice highlights his ability to see elements of a song that mesh well with his individual style (in this case it’s Mystery Skulls’ glossy vocals) while incorporating a new repertoire of components that launch “Paralyzed” into an entirely new realm of dance music.

Formed through a mutual love of jackin’ deep house and techno, the production and DJ duo, DKDS, has been bubblin’ up since their inception in NYC’s underground.

Ministry of Sound has teamed up with Defected Records to re-release Oliver $ & Jimi Jules‘ spring smash, “Pushing On,” which has been ubiquitous since its March release — sitting snugly in Beatport’s #1 spot for a nice while in addition to massive Radio 1 support and a proper rinsing at clubs everywhere in Ibiza and beyond.
And speaking of Ibiza, Made To Play/Play It Down boss, Jesse Rose, has put together a lovely “Live from the Villa” remix to coincide with MoS’ August 31st release, equipped with a dramatic intro and a classic piano-based groove that easily transports the listener poolside on some sunny Balearic island. Have a listen to Jesse’s top notch remix below. √+
Auxiliary tha Masterfader’s new remix of “Hey Baby” by That Girl With Dark Eyes is modern Electrofunk with a throwback feel, harking back to the Sheila E./Prince glory days (although the backing male vocal seems more The Revolution than Prince). The remix collaboration of Dutch producer Auxiliary tha Masterfader and San Francisco producer That Girl With Dark Eyes came to fruition after the pair bonded over a love of analog equipment. This intercontinental love fest proves that funk knows no boundaries. Oh hey baby…
