2010 saw a vast array of break out artists across the EDM spectrum, in the disco-house genre we were continually impressed by Russ Chimes‘ tunes. Last month we caught up with the British sensation, to chat about his recent Midnight Club EP and what’s to come in 2011. Here’s how it went:
GDD™: Hey Russ how was your Christmas and New Year?
RC: It was very good. Nice and chilled.
GDD™: Drink of choice over the holiday break?
RC: Mulled cider is a winner!

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.

Music is what fuels us and feeds us. It makes rainy days better, and mondays go smoother. Today I have whipped up some smoothies that ill be cruisin’ and groovin’ to while i scrub the paint out of my furniture. Don’t expect womp, but be on the lookout for euphoric, nu-disco, indie-electro intergalactic, panty-dropping, and sweet smooth sounds from the way out.

tastes like a little piece of glorious heaven scooped from a golden cloud. It sounds bright and smooth. Don’t put this on your walk-man for your morning jogs because you’ll start flying and get no exercise.
Wow this sounds like Elliot Smith on a happy day…Wish he had more of these.
Probably my favorite song in this post. Can’t wait for more productions from this lad. Japayork
hails from London and is 22, but now is hopping back and forth between japan and new york hence the name. Dreamy and synthy with beautiful vocals. Easy on the hips
The New Justin Faust
. French, Synthy and pretty upbeat. Just like the rest of his stuff, the production is top notch.
is something Kavinsky
listens too in his ferrari testarosa driving home at midnight, but this time with a girl in the car and not hunting for his ghost.
The title says it all, all you need is some champagne and moon-boots. Myspace
Another incredible XX remix. Play it for your girlfriend, then play with her.
Have an awesome week my beautiful people!
