Just yesterday I was listening to RAC‘s new remix on the Verve Remixed compilation and thought to myself, “It’d be really nice to hear an original from André to see what he’s been up to other than remixes lately.” Well, the cosmos have given a quick reply to my internal question, as the preview to the new single from RAC was posted to Soundcloud this morning featuring vocals from Bloc Party’s Kele and New York duo MNDR. “Let Go” is a summery Pop jam, with a tropical feel and lovely male/female vocal interaction. Looking forward to hearing the whole thing when it’s released next Tuesday.
For tonight I have prepared something extremely ess-pecial for you. Tonight’s feast is fit for kings. Like a nice pate´on a french plate, these french jams eeessss sooo es-mooth and creamy that they’ll slide right down without chewing. Get comfy and tuck in your napkin, but remember to keep it funky.
“The Wave consists of hand-picked gems that inspire us, tickling and tempting our creative juices. Some are old, some are new, but it is what we are listening to now. They are groovy, flowing, and sun-kissed just like that perfect wave. They are uplifting and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. They sound the best with a babe in one hand, a cold brewski in the other, and the sand beneath your feet. Stay Dreamy.”

What’s good dirty dancers?! Right now, I’m en route to Belgium, for what promises to be a ripper of a weekend ahead. This Saturday marks the 15th anniversary of the famed I Love Techno, taking place in Gent, and we’re going to be bringing you coverage of the event. If you’re based in Continental Europe, there’s only one place you should be this weekend, tickets are still available for 50 Euros a pop, well worthy of the mind blowing lineup.
