Some of you may recognize GLOVES (real name: Yama Indra) by his earlier work as the now defunct indie-dance act Damn Arms. GLOVES has set himself apart from other nu-disco producers with a winning formula of 70s AM rock & blissful, funky disco while still maintaining true dance floor grit.

After some truly classic remixes of Miami Horror & The Scare, GLOVES continues to work over the nu-disco competition with two new remixes by World’s End Press & Radio INK.

And a super quick bonus…rarely do I post previews of tracks with the girl robot promo voice over it (is anyone else kinda turned on by this voice?). But in this case, I had to. The best track off the new Bag Raiders album remixed by GLOVES – that’s as bad ass a combo as Russell Westbrook & Kevin Durant. Cannot wait for this release.

I’ve been trying to think of an Aussie I’ve ever met whose company I didn’t enjoy. I’ve employed the memories of Señor Berry and SNEEVS as well but to no avail. I’ve also taken note over the years of the slew of Australians turning out choon after choon (most recently punctuated by an outstanding Bag Raiders album.) Through my extensive and scientifically verifiable research I’ve established two simple generalizations about the Aussies:
#1 They’re cool, they like to party.
#2 They’re talented, they enjoy/make good music.
If you doubt my conclusions then allow me to present to you EXHIBIT A: the Bareback DJ’s.

Two pro surfers hailing from the land down under who now reside in San Diego, CA, these mates spend their time shredding waves by day and dance floors by night. Fairly new to the production game I imagine their skills will only continue to progress and after you hear these two tracks you’ll rest assured that means big things coming. Personally, I imagine these tunes finding a comfy home in a Claude VonStroke DJ set, but in the meantime make sure you download them straight off their SoundCloud so you can enjoy them AA24/7.

Hope you kids are recovered from another weekend of summer mayhem. This week’s been a pretty nutty seven days for electronic music, so I figured I’d kick off with a few heaters for y’all – try saying that with a British accent while trying to keep a straight face…

First up, GDD faves Dada Life have gone and produced a wicked new remix of Tim Berg, the man who also goes by the name of Avicii. Fuelled by champagne and bananas, the Swedish duo have given the original track a massive kick up the ass with distorted vox and heavy synthlines. Chin chin:

Signed with both Fool’s Gold and Modular, Bag Raiders seem to be doing rather well for themselves at the moment. Their Big Fun EP is still getting a grip of airplay and their debut album is set to hit the shelves on October 1. Until then, let the new Harvard Bass remix of ‘Way Back Home’ tide you over. Massive fan of this track; to case the original, head over to aRod’s post from a few weeks back – easy link.

I’ve been keeping an eye on Human Life who’ve been putting out some real tuneage lately. The LA based indie-disco trio will be playing at Pacific Fest in Costa Mesa on September 4th alongside Alan Braxe, Steve Aoki, and GDD’s own Dr. Schlongo & ///Bones among others, so head down to the OC and party with us on Labor Day weekend – We’ll hook you up with more info on that later. Back to Human Life though, they’ve got an EP set to drop at the beginning of November featuring remixes from Grum, Mintel Rose and Boston duo Nightriders. They’re currently giving away the B-side ‘Italo Crimewave’ for free via their soundcloud:
Last and by no means least, Mowgli‘s just unleashed a solid seven minute fidget rendition of LA Riots ‘Bombah’. Again, a huge fan of this track; if you dig it, head on over to Beatport to show Mowgli and LA Riots some love and support by buying the track in full 320 - Beatport link

Whether it was to reference Klaxons’ new album or to do a tribute to Modular People [in this case, both], somehow, someway I needed to do a post where I could include this year’s most glorious album cover. Generally I’m not a fan of album covers that are too silly or too over the top. But as you can see by the no-nonsense look on this astrocat’s face, Klaxons are not messing around: they’re back and they mean business. Their new album, Surfing the Void, drops on August 23rd. Stoked these boys are back in action…feels like it’s been forever (At least we didn’t have to wait for a follow up release from Klaxons as long as we’ve had to for fellow label mates, The Avalanches. At this point, The Avalanches are starting to reach Chinese Democracy territory).

Can any other label field an all-star lineup like Modular Recordings can? Their lineup includes seasoned veterans like Cut Copy, The Presets, Klaxons, Bag Raiders, Van She, Ladyhawke + artists like CEO, The Swiss & Tame Impala, all of whom are having monster 2010s. Modular are like The New York Yankees, except less douchey.
