could be mine

If your Summer was extra sensual, it was probably due to the sex bomb that Pat Lok dropped on you back in June.  His original track “Could Be Mine“, featuring Patrick Baker on vocals, was one of the hottest love songs of the Summer.  Fast forward to current day & “Could Be Mine” makes its presence felt once again with three fantastic remixes.  The remix package features Wantigga, Chores & Red Milk.  Ranging from soulful Kaytra-grooves to peak time goodness to experimental soul, the “Could Be Mine” remix EP has a little something for everyone…

Pomo’s new EP, “The Other Day”, is comprised of eight beautifully crafted tracks, making the EP one of 2014′s finest.  There are no throwaways here.  The entire EP, from start to finish, is nothing short of an electronic masterpiece.  Heart melting melodies that’ll have you slow dancing in front of the fireplace.  Seductive funk paired with your favorite bottle of wine or whiskey.  And deep, dirty Disco to get the blood flowing & the asses shaking.  Stock up on firewood & spirits, lock yourselves inside for the weekend & keep the Pomo EP on repeat…it’s a house party for two.

Pomo – “The Other Day” EP is out now via HW&W Recordings.

Le-Youth-R-E-A-L

The sounds of Le Youth continue to resonate throughout the blogosphere & the internet with his new track “R E A L”.  Not many artists tow the line between Disco & House as well as Le Youth does, which is a big part of why his sound resonates with so many.  On “R E A L”, Le Youth adds some gloss to the Brandy song “I Wanna Be Down” & conjures up an outstanding, chopped up rework of the 1994 classic.  The combination here of Disco & House is already a winning formula.  But when you add in a healthy dose of R&B to the mix…well that’s almost unfair to make a track this enjoyable.

Dornik
The glossy sounds of Summer are slowly starting to fade, making way for the moodier temperament of Fall.  And “On My Mind”, the brand new track from Dornik, is the perfect bridge for this seasonal change.  ”On My Mind” captures both the playfulness of Summer and the seductiveness of Fall.  Dornik’s brand of cosmic R&B will have you melting upon first listen.  It’s a dreamy, alluring sound that points toward the future while never forgetting its R&B influences from the past.  The obsession is real on this one.  Listen for yourself…

Forthcoming on PMR Records.

cyclist - sunrise

Like his fellow countryman Pat Lok or like English producer Clancy, Cyclist is an artist who is both well respected by his peers along with most popular dance music blogs.  Like the aforementioned gentlemen, Cyclist’s production work is always of the highest quality.  On his latest track, “Sunrise”, he teams up with Canadian chanteuse Maiko, their second collaboration (“Shine” was the first back in 2013).  While certain dance fads may come and go, Cyclist defies labels & produces the type of music that will most certainly stand the test of time.  And “Sunrise” is no exception.  With its classic Disco Soul vocals & Deep Disco/Jazz fusion groove, “Sunrise” is the type of track that you never tire of.  ”Sunrise” should keep its place amongst your music collection for many Summers to come.

“Sunrise” is out NOW via Toolroom Records.

alice russell x fkj

Is there anybody out there right now making smoother music than FKJ? Whether it’s remixes of contemporary artists , remixes of artists from the past or original work of his own, FKJ’s brand of silky smooth, soulful electronic music is absolutely sublime.  FKJ adds to his list of majestic tunes with his remix of the 2005 classic “Hurry On Now” by Alice Russell.  Here is what FKJ had to say regarding how he came about remixing her:

“I was streaming some Alice Russell tracks and found out that this acapella was available…completely felt in love with it and remixed it straight away. So here is my interpretation.”
