Having done awesome remix/cover work on tracks from Miami Horror and Mapei — to name a few — Happy Accidents is quickly becoming a house favorite. Today, they dropped not one, but two freebies for us to check out. The first is a cover of Blur’s classic track “Sing.” An awesome synth pop arrangement works perfectly with the airy vocals, making for a really nice version. To top that off, Happy Accidents also dropped an hour long “Songs We Like” mix, which somehow manages to cram 44 of their favorite nu-disco gems together. Big things from their camp, stream and download both sounds below!

Miami Horror will be releasing the Wild Motion EP ahead of their sophomore album due out late this year, equipped with remixes from Pete Herbert, RAC, and this retro-vibe take from Chicago’s Rogue Vogue. Strapped with an energetic lead synth and a 90s house hi hat shuffle, Rogue Vogue’s remix highlights the singalong vocals from Miami Horror while incorporating his signature Chicago-infused style.
In anticipation of their new album (due out later this year), Miami Horror strategically released several new tracks, much to the gratification of their worldwide fan base. The wonderful new tracks (along with a handful of remixes) should be enough to tide Miami Horror fans over until the new album is released. One of those tracks, “Colours in the Sky”, is a dreamy, uplifting synth track that features vocal work by Cleopold. Cleopold was able to pull double duty and put out a remix of his own. Cleopold’s remix is treated with elegance & grace, upping the bliss factor and taking “Colours in the Sky” the heavenly new heights.
I’ve got to be honest here– it’s pretty neat to see your best buds produce music you really love, particularly when it’s one of GDD’s own. The first time Tropicool played this out, I leaned over and asked him what the Hell this remix was. You can imagine my delight when he replied, “an old analog Juno and some incredible stems.” You sly bastard.
His signature touch of feel-good cosmic radiation we know from his mixtapes and Waves ≠ Raves series shines through into his production as well, which that fabulous, fat bassline punches over all the way through. I’m not huge on disco, but I’m a sucker for a big sexy groove when I can get it, and this one’s got me hooked. Pour yourself a glass of rum and tell people it’s iced tea, there’s no turning back now… the funk has been unleashed.
Our friends over at Sole Bicycles Co. have teamed up with Aussie lords, Miami Horror, to feature one hell of a remix contest. The winner will not only receive a custom 1 of 1 Miami Horror X Solé Bicycle, but will also be officially featured on the gang’s digital release on their Remix EP. The song is ‘Real Slow’ and it features some quite sexy vocals and euphoric tones perfect for sipping a cocktail poolside.

Our friends over at Solé Bicycles just dropped off the latest installment of their fixtape series, and by golly we couldn’t wait to get our grubby paws on this one. It’s CLEARLY summer in Australia. Transient and euphoric, yet funky, the vibes will plop you down next to a pile of sand, a water source, and curve the corners of your mouth upward in this month’s fixtape. The Miami Horror boys, based out of Sydney, have really put something special together for us. We can’t stop listening, and we’re not sure if thats because we really like it, or because these tones are quite mesmerizing. Probably both. Most tracks are easy to listen to, yet provide just the right amount of funk in your step while the silky smooth vocals elevate the mind and body. Enjoy with a Cocktail. Do less, love more.
Imagine cruising around the waters of Long Beach, CA on board a triple decker ship, while a multitude of killer acts– this time including GDD™’s TROPICOOL and our good friends NICEFINGERS— play across 2 stage areas, indoors and out. On 4th of July weekend 2013, a lively and very boatworthy crowd of 600 people did just that, to fantastic effect. Boatylicious was born and is now back for round two…
