Even though Winter is in full force, there’s no reason why we can’t keep warm with half an hour of disco heaters from the Finnish groove specialist Lenno. Although he’s still a teenager, he has proven again and again that he can keep up with more established artists regardless of whether it’s behind the decks or in the studio. Lenno’s impeccable taste for body movin’ beats shines through as bright as ever in this guest mix. It has almost been a full year since his very well-received GDD NYE party mix, but he continues to keep things fresh.

Last week, we went into the deep with a special Day Zero edition of our guest mix series from Fur Coat. We now have the Parisian up and comer, Uppermost, on deck with an hour of tasteful French electro. He brings a spiced-up Justice-like sound along with a more disco influenced flavor to keep things varied and fresh. Keep in mind that Uppermost will be releasing a new album soon, so let this mix serve as a warm-up for more great music to come.

After last week’s blissed-out downtempo guest mix from Cyril Hahn, we’re bringing out the disco ball and the spotlight shines brightly on the youthful and modernistic producer/DJ known as JackLNDN. Previously on GDD™, Jack‘s remix of Zedd’s “Spectrum” was the only rendition of the tune that we supported, and here we are again giving him the slot to show you what he’s capable of. When it comes to mixtapes, he has delivered the full package as he executed perfect transitions, selected funky disco/electro tracks, and even included an unreleased tune of his own and other unreleased edits of tracks that were revitalized with his fresh style. Keep an eye out for some of his unreleased material that we’ll be premiering in the coming weeks. In the meantime, enjoy this stellar guest mix from the one and only JackLNDN.

There is no day that is more appropriate for slow-jams than Sunday. To my surprise, Late Nite Tuff Guy, just put out a most excellent remix of Lionel Richie’s “Easy,” and whether you’re just getting up or you’re out running errands, the smooth, sexy sounds from LNTG can be enjoyed at any time. In supplementing this awesome track, I’ve included a download of his One Nite In A Disco mix that is a must-have for any disco enthusiast. It seems as though this is just the beginning for LNTG, and I can’t wait for what’s to come from the mysterious Aussie.

Mexican producer Bufi is quickly rising as one of my favorite artists of 2012. With a distinct disco tinge to all of his tunes, they’re clearly made with the dancefloor in mind. The extended mix of ‘Will Be’ has been a secret weapon in my sets for the last few weeks, and he’s giving away 100 copies for those lucky few that are quick on the draw. The rest will have to head over to Juno and pick up the EP there that was released today on Electrique Music. For those of you living in New York, he has a few dates this month. Check those and the EP after the drop.
Earlier this week, Future Classic released a remix package for Flight Facilities new single, “With You ft. Grovesnor.” With lyrics from Hot Chip‘s drummer Grovesnor, “With You” perfectly places a story of distraught love against a lighthearted, pop electronic backdrop. Flight Facilities commissioned remixes from two of my favorite producers, who each add a deeper and more complex sound to the track. Danny Daze makes the track perfect for those after hours sets, while David August turns it into the perfect companion for deep contemplation on a long drive home.
