Prep School Recordings and Ardency are proud to present: Kavsinky – Nightcall (Ardency Remix), released for free in anticipation of Ardency’s “Gradience” EP, forthcoming on Prep School Recordings in December 2014.
“A lot of the music that we grew up listening to focused almost exclusively on conveying emotion. The musicians that inspired us to produce our own records were those that created well constructed musical arrangements and provoked raw emotion. Kavinsky’s record “Nightcall” is a prime example of this. The song is simple but thought out and meaningful. Every part of it was made to convey the brooding emotion of his character. We wanted to stay true to our style while making a remix that did the original justice. Ultimately, the goal of our music is to stimulate emotion within our listeners; we want to make people feel.” – Ardency

From deep disco to indie-electro, from big disco to UK + deep house, this mix runs the gamut on all your favorite genres. Lustful, sleazy, bouncy vibes from the MASSIVE track list (incl.

Kavinsky is back in the US touring in support of his long-awaited debut album, OutRun, out last month on Casablanca/Republic Records, and supporting him tonight at Webster Hall in NY and tomorrow night at Lot 613 here in Los Angeles is one of GDD™’s favorite Brits, Riton. Riton has recently put together a Rerub for Croatian duo SymbolOne, who just released their Pink Elephant EP on ClubMod in late February, and ClubMod has been nice enough to let us give away his Techno take on the House-y original for free! Download below and check out Riton this weekend if you’re in NY or LA!

Release date TBA for this bad boy.

Kavinsky is Dark, orchestrated, and Dirty. Love the violins and heavy over-tones. Here’s the first teaser of his new album to be released soon in the new year. Don’t play this in your car, you’ll end up arrested.
TONIGHT the Avalon in Hollywood will play host to a mind-blowing, highly anticipated live set from Ed Banger‘s SebastiAn. It’s been over 4 years since the last time I saw SebastiAn when he played one of the best dance music events I’ve ever attended. Yes, that would be Daft Punk, Ratatat, SebastiAn, and Kavinksy at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles in July of 2007. With a newly orchestrated live set as well as supporting sets from Sharooz, Destructo, Brazzabelle, and Andy D’Arrigo, I’m sure this will be a night of CONTROL to remember.

You know you have the flu when wacking-off doesn’t even feel good. But, it also means a lotta good music for you! Well, actually tons of very good music. While I’ve been aching and tossing in bed, the past month has been a billowing heaven for awesome nu-disco and feel good jams. I’ll let the music speak for itself, and make sure you download ALL of it, because yes, it ALL is worth it. You can thank me later.
Breakbot Does it again, adding sweet funkified nectar to this dark drive home. LoveFoxx’s, aka lead vocals for CSS, voice is beautiful bringing this clouded masterpiece together.
Can’t get enough of Mr. Russ chimes. Its dreamy and dancey at the same time. Goes together like peas and carrots.
OK.ok, i know this was #1 on hypeM and blogged all over the place, but i couldn’t resist. Its just that damn good. Its indie-infused which i’m a huge sucker for, and we gotta give it up for our friends, LightsOverLA.
Cassian and Miami Horror, what could be sweeter? Probably only sugar cane dropping from the teet of megan fox.
Barretso is one of my new favorite acts, if you’re just reading this now, grab the previous post here. This song is pure glitchy happy glory. Keep your eyes peeled for both Redial and Barretso in the future, they’re taking over a light up dance floor near you.
“This is not a Malfunction!” just a very groovy track. Perfect song to toss in to those early or late night sets when the crowd starts-a-talkin’ with their hips.
Funky fresh! All of this new grum is really giving me the heebee-geebies. Here’s the video to his new single “Can’t Shake this feeling.” Its out may 3rd directed by the General assembly and produced by TownHall.
