GDD homies and Dim Mak-ians VCO have been very true-to-form studio rats as of late, churning out music left and right. Adding another pot to their busy stove, the duo have decided to launch a bi-weekly podcast more than aptly titled “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe”. In true VCO style the mix contains a variety of hollowed, dark techno sprinkled throughout with just a tinge of weirdness. By compiling a rather special selection of artists together, VCO provides an excellent showcase into their style which anyone who’s a fan of the darker side of the electronic spectrum will be more than pleased with and ready for more.
A-trak‘s Tuna Melt EP unloaded a stacked collab package at the end of last year, with the self titled EP single w/ Tommy Trash taking things to festival fathoms. With remixes on deck, our Toronto-based friend and familiar Grandtheft has served up the trap treatment on this big room monster and the product is down right naaaasty. And wait, he’s giving it away for free? DAYUM SON, where’d you find this sandwich.
Kris Menace has a new album coming out entitled Features which includes collaborations with The Presets, Robert Owens, Simon Lord, The Glass and others. The first single off the album is the track “Hide” featuring the always fabulous Miss Kittin. ”Hide” delivers what you would expect from these two electronic music legends – lush, pulsating beats and soaring, sultry vocals.
Dirtying up things on the remix end are PWNDTIAC whose driving electro remix is certain to thrash every dance floor it touches. With early buzz from Queen Annie Mac, this remix is already picking up some serious steam. Do not miss out on this one. The PWNDTIAC remix of “Hide” is out NOW via Compuphonic.
One of our favorite deep disco producers, Clancy, keeps the Halloween vibe going with his remix of the aptly titled “Vampire” by Beaumont. Much like his previous and equally amazing remix of Little Dragon, Clancy’s remix of Beaumont is a noir-ish disco remix that will leave dance floors feeling sexy and deep.
Our man Josh Legg, aka Goldroom, is back with another fantastic remix, this time of Australian alterna-rockers Atlas Genius. Goldroom’s remix of “Back Seat” is a piece of tropical new wave nostalgia that would have fit in well on MTV’s alternative show 120 Minutes circa the mid to late-80s. Of course to be on the show, there would have to have been an accompanying video. I’m picturing something reminiscent of “Rio” by Duran Duran: A yacht, the Caribbean, white suits and for absolutely no explainable reason, body-painted vixens.

Viceroy’s at it again, sticking to his “Summertime, All the Time” mantra on his brand new remix of Washington, DC indie electronic band Brett. Viceroy takes the funky feel of the original and splashes it with his trademark summer colors. Sunny piano, sweet, bouncy lyrics and frolicking disco vibes make Brett + Viceroy the perfect fit to keep those dark days full of light.
Out October 30th on iTunes!
Just looking at this photo of Jessie Ware & Joe Goddard (Hot Chip/The 2 Bears) in a studio is enough to get any music lover excited. The two brilliant artists were captured in the studio together working on his remix of her track “Night Light”. As utterly fantastic as the finished product is (a stunning, dancefloor storming, deep electro remix), the video of Miss Ware & Mr. Goddard in the studio is equally amazing to watch. Sit back and enjoy the video below as you catch a rare glimpse of an artist and remixer coming together to share ideas on a remix. Then, after the video, stand up and dance.
When it comes to remixes, Duke Dumont has a knack for putting his own stamp on a track and turning it into something fresh and original. He’s often called a producer’s producer and rightfully so. As expressed in a recent interview with The Line of Best Fit, he’s very respectful when it comes to the process and art of music production. The diversity of artists he has remixed (Santigold, Metronomy, ZZT, Bonobo, Mystery Jets) is a testament to his unique style and his respect for all genres of music. His latest gem of a remix is for the ethereal song “Your Drums, Your Love” by AlunaGeorge. It’s a beautifully crafted remix and the combination of AlunaGeorge and Duke Dumont is RED RED HOT.
The “Your Drums, Your Love” EP is out October 15th [Pre-order HERE]
