Little is known about the incognito artist/duo/group/robots Letthemusicplay besides the name reference to Shannon’s 1983 chart topping single titled, you guessed it, “Let the Music Play.” Mixmag, A-Trak, and The 2 Bears are supporting their first release titled “Space,” and DFA Records‘ Jacques Renault added his magic touch with a dark disco remix. Letthemusicplay also remixed the track, turning it into a deep disco hit. What I do know is that Letthemusicplay is/are someone to look out for in 2012.

All the way in Mexico City, two dudes that call themselves The Wookies
(but told not to be confused with Chewbacca) have put out an incredible dance EP aptly named ‘Discotecno’. They have disco heaters like sound they could be upcoming Duck Sauce releases, as well as rolling arpeggios that make you want to find the nearest discotheque and get 10 kinds of freaky. Oh yeah, and they’re releasing it for free.
If it doesn’t feel like the weekend yet, Bit Funk’s remix of Justin Faust’s ‘Girl Talk’ will surely motivate you to leave your job and head straight to the bar. Out on Beatport today, this dreamy feel good remix is another smash addition to Brooklyn producer Bit Funk’s long list of great disco and house records, which I strongly encourage you to review.
The well known veteran Treasure Fingers (Ashley Jones) has been providing the beats in clubs for over a decade now, firstly as part of the drum & bass group, Evol Intent and now solo as Treasure Fingers. The man is known for his groovy basslines, melodic synth lines and a disco feel that certainly has become staple in the EDM scene.
And if your a fan, then I have a gift for you…
Treasure Fingers Spring 2011 mix was recorded live in good ole England. The mix is exactly what you would expect from the disco giant, packed full of danceable grooves, some good grit and an overall flow that has become hard to achieve in today’s scene.

Always with love,
The influx of good music I mean really, really good music coming from Canada of late has been pleasantly overwhelming. With the recent success of up and comers like Azari & III, John Roman, Jacques Greene, and Prince Club, I’m reintroducing Toronto based producer Sean Roman. After falling in love with his tracks ‘Phone Call‘ and ‘Lick‘ last year, I’m glad to give you guys another dose of his quality dance/disco/house tunes. Having been working with the Top Billin’ label, he’s had support from the likes of Lee Foss and Wolf + Lamb. Perhaps my favorite of the batch of tracks he sent me though is one from his side-project called White Lions called ‘I Need A Rhythm’. JACKIN. JACKIN. JACKIN.
I don’t know if I can speak for all DJs, but I’m constantly being bothered to categorize certain songs into genres for people who consider the heinous songs of LMFAO ‘techno’. Granted, you’re probably a well-seasoned blogger bro who could rattle off every genre from uk-fidget to garage to post-indie-nu-disco whatevers, but when it comes to Señor Stereo, I consider it to be proper dance music. The three piece group release their Unintentional EP today on Slow Roast with 5 tracks ranging from Italo to jazz to dancefloor destroyers like the -soon to be acclaimed- ‘Hot Damn’. Cop the entire EP HERE ON ITUNES.
When I played a couple shows in Toronto a few months ago, I was introduced to the guys from YYZ Records. After sharing multiple beers trying to understand the rules of curling, they played a few tracks from artists on their label. They just sent along a groovy single from Jeremy Glenn, whose background in 80s and R&B soul is rife throughout ‘Mysterious Lover’. A funky bassline over infectious lyrics will find its way perfectly into a classy early evening disco set. The remix comes from Miami resident and YYZ artist Panic Bomber, who brings an uptempo tech-house inspired track for the wee hours of the night.
Deep breath. You’re almost there. Well, once you clear the rush hour traffic and take your dog to relieve himself, then you can practically taste that first cocktail of what’s sure to be an eventful weekend. I might be a bit of hypocrite for doing this as I generally don’t post a mishmash of different songs by different bros, but for some reason I’m feeling all kinds of sprightly today. *wanky ‘highly recommend’ sidebar to download all tracks*
• Treasure Fingers – What Am I Supposed to Do
Just nabbed this brand new discoball destroyer from Treasure Fingers over at THE FADER. I think Craze just said it best via twitter today “this tune will help you get laid”. Either that, or be on your way to a triple digit bar tab.
• Duck Sauce – The Motion
The aftermath of WMC left piles of ash and a mouthful of rumors swirling about Miami like the winds after a hurricane. However, many legitimate sources said Duck Sauce played the set of the entire conference at the Fools Gold Showcase. Two words: Barbara Streisand.
• Gucci Mane – Lemonade (White Lions Remix)
You’ve heard of Gucci Mane. You haven’t heard of White Lions. Remember Sean Roman? He’s in a little side-project with some fellow Canadians that form this housey/disco outfit. The best part of this song: they stripped the cheese and added a crispy topping of groove.
• Oliver Twizt – Another Step (Original Mix)
Another talented Dutch producer, however, you won’t find any bleepy car alarms in this Oliver Twizt tune. Loving the Aretha Franklin inspired minimal/house. Suited for late night no pants dance at your place after the disco.
