After nearly 10 years of composing and playing guitar/keyboards for the band Lotus, Luke Miller, aka Luke the Knife, turns his diverse musical skills and experience towards the DJ booth to revive a more organic funk and disco sound in the scene. With his extensive catalog of remixes and re-edits, he has been building a brand fit for the modern dance floor, much like his groovy jam band roots. Luke now gives us a guest mix that packages his tasteful nu-disco style into an impressive feel-good offering that includes many of his own stand-out edits, along with great tracks like Classixx’s remix of Panama’s “Always,” and the Treasure Fingers remix of “Without You” by Dillon Francis ft. TEED, among others. Download/Listen to the mix below and don’t miss his DJ sets or live performances that incorporate guitar, keys, guest drummers, percussionists, and a saxophonist.

It’s The Dirt #141 brought to you by Steven N. Ewald + aRod. It’s a brand new year and we’re taking things up a notch. We’ve got a 12-pack of freebies from big hitters like Treasure Fingers & The Knocks, Chromeo, Salva, Dillon Francis feat. TEED and the latest French Express release from Lane 8. Plus plenty of other freshness from our GDD mates Traveler, a blissed out Chris Jylkke remix of a Lana del Rey “classic” & plenty of straight up HOUSE MUSIC to kick this year into gear. Strap in for this week’s wild ride…
Treasure Fingers dropped off his amazing remix of Tatiana Owens‘s new track, Beautiful People, out earlier on T&A Records earlier today. It’s a quite bouncy disco-tech vibe with some amazing vocal work laced on top.
Turns out they extended their remix contest for the original track until January 14th, where the full Remix package EP, also featuring GDD bud, Them Jeans, will be released as well. Full Details HERE.
Anna Lunoe is dominating right now. The slick remixes for her hit single are out (featuring remixes by Treasure Fingers, Cosmos Midnight, Danny T, Sleepy Tom & Wordlife). Her clothing line is fly. Her artwork is dope (I obviously haven’t updated my vernacular since “In Living Color”). And her new video for “Breathe” is a smashing success.
Today we’re featuring the ultra bad-ass Treasure Fingers remix of “Breathe”. Treasure Fingers flexes some serious dancefloor muscle with this booming Miami Bass/Freestyle remix. Serious pop n’ lock vibes.
Night Drive are a duo whose name perfectly encapsulates not only their sound but also their mission. Their sound is a non-stop expedition into the future of electro pop. And if recalibrating the future of electro pop is their mission, then the future looks bright (neon bright). On their new track, “Sea of Light”, Night Drive fuse together all the right elements of disco, electro + new wave to create another plush piece of future electro pop. To help lend a hand to the mission, Night Drive have also enlisted another agent, Treasure Fingers, whose remix expedition takes us on a dreamy, retro-futuristic synth pop ride.
Additional “Sea of Light” remixes by Justin Faust, Kulkid and Elektromekanik will be out August 27th followed by the release of their self titled debut EP on September 3rd via Robot Dance Records. And don’t miss out on their U.S. tour with Tesla Boy, Gold Fields and Rush Midnight (dates listed below).
In the meantime, catch a glimpse of the future…
