NYC based psych-pop trio American Royalty had an eventful 2013, releasing their popular Prismatic and subsequent Prismatic Remixes EP’s, the latter featuring Jerome LOL, Kaytranada, Urulu, Romaj and Drop The Lime. With a similarly large 2014 ahead, the band ( Marc Gilfry, Billy Scher and Matt Ungson) are performing a headline show at Brooklyn’s Baby All Right on Thursday 13th February, accompanied by Ghenis Hans. As a precursor to the show, American Royalty have remixed fellow Brooklynites Body Language, chopping up their jam “Well Absolutely” with signature American Royalty percussion. You can listen to the remix via THUMP HERE, and grab a free download of the stellar effort over at the band’s Facebook page.

Every dance track you have read about or will read about this season will claim to be THE Summertime song. But no song has captured the full spirit of Summer the way Body Language’s “Well Absolutely” has done. “Well Absolutely” has upbeat, sexy + soulful vibrations throughout, enough to crossover into any & every disco, indie, house & electropop Summer playlist.
The full length album by Body Language, entitled “Grammar” will be out in September. In the meantime, “Well Absolutely” is out NOW via Lavish Habits (BUY). And don’t forget to check out the equally vibrant video below!
If Deep Disco is your thing then underground San Francisco label Smoke N’ Mirrors is something that should be on your radar. In addition to releasing the acclaimed When We On full length from Crazy P last year, the Om Records sub-label has also rounded up releases from solid talent like Edit Murphy, Ian Pooley, Body Language, and more. Today, Smoke N’ Mirrors released the second compilation in their Audio Illusions series, featuring 17 superb and smooth tracks — all of which I recommend investigating. Preview the entire compilation below and pick up the release on Beatport. Continue Reading

Or when your plane is flying over the ocean, your headphones are on and your head is in the clouds, this is your song. The Vacationer + Body Language combo perfectly captures those moments of relaxed anticipation as you’re ready to embark on your journey with its soothing 60s-style vocal harmonies and smooth midtempo groove.

This week’s Dirt is a compilation of many different vibes and grooves brought to you by Burn Unit and me. Although my colleague and I share many of the same tastes for music, we gather much of our new tunage from different outlets, making the combination of our curation a wholesome, healthy platter of solid tracks that we see fit only for GDD™‘s longest standing feature, The Dirt. Have at it and have a great weekend ladies and gentlemen!
• Jeremy Joshua – Thinking About Your Face (Original Mix) √++
I found this funky, sexy gem in a Cajmere mixtape a month or so ago. Released back in May on Detroit’s Sampled Recordings, this jam is a must play if you want to add something fresh and different into a groovier set. Go grab the 320 on Beatport!
• Lee Foss – Happened For A Reason (Original Mix) √+
I dug this out of Daniel Bortz Beatport chart that he made back in April. Lee Foss can honestly do no wrong. Funky bassline with wood blocks? I say yes. Definitely yes.
• Korallreven – As Young As Yesterday (Girl Unit Remix) √+
Throw this on and enter a world of floating and blissfulness. Girl Unit takes the Swedish duo’s original and adds a certain beauty to it that you’ll have to hear for yourself.
BIG ROOM RAVE
• Clockwork – Weaver (No Body Remix) √+
NYC-based Clockwork and I ran a remix competition for his track, ‘Weaver,’ and we received more entries than we knew what to do with. This is the winner. Get it?
• Body Language – You Can (Star Slinger Remix) √+
Sunshine House. It’s exactly what it sounds like. Star Slinger just kicked off his North American tour today, so check his Facebook and see if he’s swinging by your spot.
• Cassius – The Sound of Violence (Franco Cinelli Remix) √+ [192kbps]
So you’ve pulled off the task of getting a lucky someone back to your house after a long day of day-drinking and aren’t sure how to make that first move? Put this song on and let it work its magic. Grab the 320 off Beatport for some extra high quality lovin’.
• 11:11 – Tourist Trap (Jamie Jones ‘Miss X’ Remix) √√√+++ [192kbps]
Diddy recently completed work on an album with techno guru Guy Gerber under the moniker 11:11 and the remix package for ‘Tourist Trap’ features Visionquest, Soul Clap, this gem, and more. Personally, I think it’s great for the industry that Diddy is on board with such incredibly talented underground artists. Guy is calling the collab the “future of electronic pop.”
There’s really nothing quite like a big room Phoenix remix to generate a little movement in the lumber yard. The GTA boys have had this out for a minute, but just recently made it available for download. Click through to SoundCloud to grab it in all its glory!
NOT SURE WHAT TO CALL IT BUT IT’S GOOD HOUSE
• No Body – Start Again √+
Imagine that Bart B More and Benny Benassi had a baby, then that baby grew up and knocked up Dirty South’s baby, and then yeah, you get the point… that’s what this sounds like.
I will always associate any rendition of this song with Mehdi. Pretty much the most absurd tagteam set ever was going down between Boys Noize, A-Trak, Busy P, Riton, Diplo and Mehdi at an Electric Zoo afterparty when one of the guys (I think Pedro) dropped ‘How Deep Is Your Love.’ The place went apeshit, I went upstairs to get a drink, and that’s the last memory I have of DJ Mehdi behind the decks. I’ll never forget that moment… You should click through to SoundCloud and read the description A-Trak wrote for this dub he did. Truly touching. Always remember to keep on smiling. RIP Mehdi.

Tiger and Woods’ brand new remix of “Falling Out” by Body Language is eight minutes plus of double disco splendor. Tiger and Woods take the original soulful disco track and shape it & form it into their own brand of punchy, rubbery disco. I know, I know, disco this and disco that – everyone seems to be dabbling in disco nowadays. But if ever there were two artists who know how to do disco properly, it’s Body Language and it’s Tiger and Woods. And when you combine the two, be prepared to glide + boogie like never before.
