Fresh off the success of his recent smash, “Dirty Work”, Chicago funkster Sam Padrul continues his ride on a big Summer wave with his latest offering, “Hold On Me”. “Hold On Me” features Australian artist Mammals & the song is another fine example by Sam Padrul of how electronic pop music should be properly executed. And, of course, it’s his funk that brings it all together. It’s the type of sexy, pop driven funk that many electronic artists are either not daring enough to try or not funky enough to deliver. With Mammals being no stranger to top team ups (previously teaming up on Goldroom’s classic “Till Sunrise”), this pairing is a perfect Summertime collaboration. Time to set sail on the sea of Summertime funk…
“Hold On Me” is out soon on iTunes & other digital outlets.
Well, its time to fire up the BBQ and spend your days outside. Bit Funk is back with the soundtrack to go alongside that scene. Cue “Destination Sunrise”, a summer jam featuring vocalist Nefe on top of production boasting sprinkles of tropical dance elements, while remaining pop at its core. This track follows up on his late 2015 release of Off The Ground, which has garnered over 3 million streams on Spotify and trickled into mainstream radio across North America.
If you like your Pop extra funky & your Disco done risqué, look no further because Sam Padrul has got the goods. His new single “Dirty Work” snags all the key elements from early 80s Funk/Disco + late 90s/early 2000s French House/French Pop & whips them into a modern Springtime masterpiece. Vocalist Patrick Baker’s ultra smooth style enhances the song’s suave, seductive feel. It’s playful Pop with a sexy twist.

Morgan Geist has a new project out called The Galleria. That sentence alone should make any House music fan rejoice. I mean, we’re talkin’ Metro Area AND Storm Queen here…whatever new project Morgan Geist puts his legendary touch on is more than enough to give us the tingles. Morgan Geist teams up with songstress Jessy Lanza for some big time throwback freshness on The Galleria’s debut 4 track EP “Calling Card/Mezzanine”.

The EP is full of classic Freestyle flair & 80s nostalgia but with a sharp, modern twist that only Morgan Geist can deliver. This EP is exactly what dance music needs right now. WAY FRESH.
“Galleria/Mezzanine” is out NOW exclusively on iTunes via Environ Records.
If you ask any electronic music fan who has been into the scene since the mid to late 2000s, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who wasn’t a fan of the Electro/French Disco sound that defined that era. Fast forward to 2015 and we find Brooklyn producer LEFTI paying homage to the big sound of that glorious era. LEFTI’s remix of “The Business of Emotion” by Big Data takes that pulsating Electro Disco sound and modernizes it with a dash of feel good Electronic Pop. Paying tribute to an era of music while still making it modern & fresh is not an easy task. But LEFTI delivers a fantastic remix that surely stands on its own (and one that will make those who longed for the genre-defining sounds of Yuksek, Justice & The Twelves to return very happy). Primetime remix.
