Yesterday, our boys Josh & Angelo from PeaceTreaty sent us over a pair of previews of their upcoming remixes that will be hitting Beatport in the next couple of weeks, and we are impressed as usual. The first track is a hot n’ heavy new take on Moby‘s ‘After,’ complete with a light synthy Big Room build and a heavy bassline drop that I can’t wait to hear on some professional speakers. Already gaining support from Steve Angello, Hardwell, and Tommy Trash, this remix will be released on Moby’s Lil Idiot Records on Monday, October 31st. The second remix on our plate is Diplo & Oliver Twizt‘s ‘Go,’ and personally, I can really hear the always-improving PeaceTreaty signature sound in this one. This EP will be released on Mad Decent on November 8th, and you probably have heard it played out already by some people you may have heard of: Tiesto, Benny Benassi, Afrojack, Chuckie, and Mr. Aoki. Keep ‘em coming fellas!
Good morning! Today’s news is comprised of music and new releases from James Blake, Moby, & Gorillaz. It’s raining here in Los Angeles, so I found it appropriate to post an Emancipator stream to start the day, but SoundCloud is still letting me down. Listen to the track while you read more on the morning update after the jump…
On Sunday we were treated to a fantastic gig from Moby as London’s month long iTunes Festival drew to a close. Camden’s Roundhouse was packed to the rafters with special guests and competition winners being treated to a really intimate show that lasted almost 2 hours. Moby ripped through a set that included hits ‘Natural Blues’, ‘Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?’, ‘Honey’, and the mighty ‘Porcelain’, while also showcasing a handful tracks from his new Destroyed record such as ‘Be The One’, ‘Sevastopol’, and ‘Lie Down In Darkness’. If you haven’t already heard Destroyed, I think it’s his most impressive work since 2002′s 18 album and one of the best records I’ve heard this year.
Sunday proved not only that Moby’s one of the most prolific songwriters and electronic producers of our age, but also that unlike so many musicians, his live shows are even more monumental than his studio work – His band were really tight, and the female vocalist who joined him had a sensational voice. Overall a great gig to be at, and you can stream the whole thing for free from iTunes here.
Special thanks to the guys at Isklar for having us along.
Foamy and frothy jams for those who get bloated easily. Another installment for that epic beach day or sensual shag session. Peace and Love.
“The waves ≠ raves 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 groovey, 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.”
There’s something about the piano riff in Holy Ghost’s“Wait & See” which seems to trigger some sort of Pavlovian response that makes me want to run out and find the nearest pool party every time I hear it. Whether it’s being used as the cornerstone of a track or is just being used as a faint timbre, that signature riff adds its golden touch to several of the recently released remixes of “Wait & See”. This package includes can’t miss remixes by CFCF (free download here), Kris Menace & Flight Facilities (featured last month here).
Also featured in this heavyweight remix package is a double dose of electronic music legends: Moby and Richard X.Moby classes things up with an added guitar riff and some soaring strings while Richard X takes the original into new electropop territory.
Not only is “Wait & See” easily one of the top tracks of 2011, but this remix package, which reads like an All-NBA Team, is also going to be a tough one to top. “Wait & See” (Remixes) is out now on DFA Records.
LDN This Friday our friends over at Potty Mouth Disco are putting on another of their killer warehouse parties in London’s East End.

Sorry for the extended hiatus everybody. I had a holiday break full of tequila, border police, and snow bunnies, and I have to say it’s wonderful to be back in school. I hope you all had an excellent new year and got some sweet strange ass at midnight. But now, it is a new decade and why not celebrate the big ’10 with us at the Avalon in Hollywood with Drop The Lime and Designer Drugs this Friday? Tear down those Christmas lights and throw away that gross egg nog, it’s time to rave again.
