Toronto music maker Cyclist has become a master in the art of Disco.  From classic Disco to Disco House, from Boogie to Funk, from sleazy Disco to sensual Disco, Cyclist knows how to craft a proper modern Disco track.  On his latest remix of the song “Light Breaker” by Neighbour (featuring Piper Davis), Cyclist unleashes a barrage of big sounds ranging from a squelchy synth bass to heavy guitars to pounding funk drums.  The result is a funky, dirty dose of cosmic chaos and another standout tune from our man Cyclist.

The “Light Breaker” EP is out now via Homebreakin’ Records. [BUY]

Ever since we caught wind of Disciples, they’ve been a favorite of ours. With their deep house sound matched with just a touch of pop sensibilities, it’s no surprise that they’ve been on a steep ascent, gaining recognition for the original, “They Don’t Know,” and more. Now after Justin Jay unveiled his “They Don’t Know” remix, France’s Sirus Hood steps up to the plate to mesh his g-house sound with the Disciples smash for a deep and bouncy groove. Enjoy above and pre-order your copy on iTunes, ahead of the remix pack release next week.

Leave it up to HONNE to take one of the sexiest jams from the past four months and sex it up even more.  If “Bassically” by Tei Shi was the track that you seduced someone in the bedroom to, then the HONNE remix of “Bassically” is the track you seduced someone at the whiskey lounge to to get to the bedroom.  It’s high level seduction on HONNE’s remix of Tei Shi.

Be on the lookout for Tei Shi’s “Verde” EP out April 14th.  Pre-order at teishimusic.com.

Sam-Smith-Lay-Me-Down-official-artwork-537x350

It’s been wonderful to see the meteoric rise of Sam Smith.  He is an undeniable talent worthy of all the accolades he’s received.  At the same time, it’s difficult to get too excited about yet another Sam Smith remix.  In this case, however, we will make an exception because the exception is for the red hot Pomo.  It’s been three months since the release of Pomo’s debut EP “The Other Day” and the EP is still going strong.  ”The Other Day” EP will no doubt make many “Best of 2015″ lists at the end of the year.  Pomo keeps that same magic alive on his remix of Sam Smith’s “Lay Me Down”, transforming the crooner’s ballad into a smooth + smokey speakeasy anthem.

The original don and literal trademark holder of “Summertime All The Time” is back with another tropical masterpiece.  Viceroy introduced the world to these sounds, and he continues to carry a torch for all things sax-infused.  ”Back At The Start” is a mid-tempo track with the enlisted help of K. Flay.  The saxophone solo intertwined with the chorus sections is just about as good as it gets, bouncing atop the head-bobbing bass line.  As Summer approaches, you know Viceroy has been supplementing his arsenal for some epic dance parties.  Make sure you make it out to one of his upcoming shows.

New York’s Prince Fox has been churning out some really cool remixes over the past few months.  He’s targeted names such as Kanye West, Florence & The Machine, and LeMaitre, and now he’s got his sights on Kimbra.  He picked a hell of a track to rework — “Settle Down.”  Kimbra’s beautiful falsetto offers a great platform for this poppy, light-hearted house edit.  Bouncy bass and melodic percussive elements play together nicely as this one drips out of your speakers.  Download it for free, and stay tune for more Prince Fox.
