After a month of anticipation since this anthem debuted on Radio 1, Russ Chimes has leaked the full version on his Soundcloud. The timing of this release is perfect as it is sure to be the cut to kickstart your weekend spirit and take you exactly where you need to go after a long week. At first listen it seems like a very basic track, but that’s because Russ Chimes has stripped it down to the bare essentials. The vocals electrify the bouncing bass line while the four on the floor beat takes you home. Set to be released on Deconstruction/Columbia Records April 29th, it represents his first moves in 2013 following up his hit single “Back 2 You” in 2012.

London-based band Bastille (not to be confused with the LA DJ/production duo) will be releasing “Flaws,” their third single release on Virgin Records, on the 22nd of this month, and fellow Londoner and GDD™ favorite Russ Chimes has completely transformed the Pop sensibilities of the original written by frontman Dan Smith into a straight-up, dancefloor-ready House jam. While the remix has definitely increased the energy of the original, it’s retained the emotion from Smith, repeating and layering his lyrics “all of my flaws” and “let’s finish what we’ve started” all throughout. Listen below and watch the official video for the single after the jump.√+
The ever-groovy Russ Chimes released the well-received House track, “Back 2 You,” on the Positiva imprint at the end of July via Beatport, and now the single is slated for a September 17th release on Positiva/Virgin which will feature a bundle of new remixes — including this incredibly tasteful rework from Leeds producer, Hot Since 82. With tracks already released on Moda Black, Noir, Defected, and now this superb remix for Virgin, Hot Since 82 should be a name you’ll be seeing more of in coming months. √+
The Londoner, Russ Chimes, has quite the massive tune on his hands, and I’m sure you’ll be very grateful for it’s release next week just as I will be. “Back 2 You” starts with an amazingly energetic build up into strong, driving grooves complete with great melodies and a catchy sample on top. Have a listen to the excellent production from Mr. Chimes after the jump.
Sylvain Dalido AKA Popular Computer knows a bit about priorities and sacrifice. When his parental duties summoned him in 2009, he decided to take a hiatus from music production after signing with French label Kitsuné, where he had already become an original Kitsuné artist and staff producer. After 2 years of focusing on being a Dad, Popular Computer is back in a big way with a full length album titled LiTE slated for release on Chilly Gonzalez + Housse De Racket‘s label, Schmooze. Although we’re heading into winter, this album will definitely bring in some summery jams through the clouds with support from Aeroplane, Russ Chimes, The C90s, and more.
