After nearly 10 years of composing and playing guitar/keyboards for the band Lotus, Luke Miller, aka Luke the Knife, turns his diverse musical skills and experience towards the DJ booth to revive a more organic funk and disco sound in the scene. With his extensive catalog of remixes and re-edits, he has been building a brand fit for the modern dance floor, much like his groovy jam band roots. Luke now gives us a guest mix that packages his tasteful nu-disco style into an impressive feel-good offering that includes many of his own stand-out edits, along with great tracks like Classixx’s remix of Panama’s “Always,” and the Treasure Fingers remix of “Without You” by Dillon Francis ft. TEED, among others. Download/Listen to the mix below and don’t miss his DJ sets or live performances that incorporate guitar, keys, guest drummers, percussionists, and a saxophonist.

Fresh off The Dirt from yesterday with Stevie and I, the always summer sounding Panama get a refix from the awesomely instrumental Classixx where a heavy dose of live bass amps up the original prepping it for your groovy endless summer days. The feel of the track is transformed through spacey beach guitar vibes yet the vocals remain intact to deliver their lovely message. Piano riffs scattered throughout accent Panama’s sound perfectly, delivering another instant classic…from the Classixx.

One of my personal favorites from Classixx‘s debut album, Hanging Gardens, has received the video treatment today, featuring a posh, nautical setting with Ms. Whang exemplifying all that is luxurious. Also included in the video produced by Urban Outfitters is a hilarious cameo from Tyler and Mike where they come into contact with the fabulous Nancy under the boat deck. Give it a watch!
Sweet, Sweet, disco nectar delivered strait to your door. This sun-kissed ultra funky mix mutates & cultivates the vibes of Tropicool‘s essence in the South Bay. Everything is in full bloom, the birds, bees, and the myrts feel it. The sand is warm and the micheladas are frosty. Poseidon is holding a conch shell to his ear, and the vibration station is starting to reverberate. Perv and swerve, because for this one, you’re meant to loose control while on cruise control.

Earlier this fall Jerome LOL set out on a West Coast tour with Classixx, Cosmic Kids, and RAC for some of the most infectious summer time music when everyone was having summer withdrawals. Classixx were a crowd favorite, and then “Holding On” surfaced late last month and the internet was abuzz with this summertime sensation. It would appear Jerome couldn’t get the song out of his head, along with everyone else who heard these endorphin packed vibes, as he set out to create this remix for them. It does a great job of building and resolving into the original chords as his minimalistic percussion patterns create a comfortable dance environment for you to get down to. Out digitally and 12″ on April 2nd on Leisure Recordings, be sure to make sure your spring playlists are as forward as they can be with this summer time anthem.
