Yolanda Be Cool‘s massive rebranding effort from their 2010 hit single, “We No Speak Americano,” has proved to be very fruitful. Signing to Dim Mak Records for the U.S. release of their new album turned a lot of heads, and their mix for the label’s pool party in Miami stirred up a lot of passion. With many ID’s on their way according to some facebook activity, a new song and video titled, “A Baru In New York,” has come into being.

The classic track from Suzanne Vega and DNA, ‘Tom’s Diner,’ has been one of my favorites since I can remember. The catchy vocals from Suzanne Vega married with the dance sensibilities from DNA made this track an absolute smash, and over a decade later, Sydney native Anna Lunoe has teamed up with Wordlife for a collaborative cover of the original — only this time taking it a bit deeper and a bit dancier. Anna and Wordlife put together two mixes of the cover — a shorter, to-the-point version from Anna and a longer, extended version from Wordlife.

After a one week hiatus, CONTROL is back with a dancey lineup featuring two big shots of Disco House, the DnB gone Disco producer from Atlanta known as Treasure Fingers and one of the biggest up and coming names in the genre, BURNS. Unfortunately, a disco rollerskate boogie is most likely not allowed inside the Avalon in Hollywood on Friday night, but be sure to expect one happy crowd and two sensational DJs going all night.
I know it’s a little late notice, but it’s a big night at Cinespace tonight kiddos! As you can see above, Midnight Juggernauts will be performing live off of their new album, The Crystal Axis, which was released on Siberia Records in June. Main stage will also play host to another live performance from Las Vegas electro trio, Afghan Raiders, who will also be making an appearance at HARD Summer in August. I don’t know about you all, but I love to see live shows as often as possible, so I would definitely suggest making it out to catch both of these acts.
From Lyon, France via Buenos Aires, Argentina, Hugo Douster‘s kicking up a storm at the moment. We’ve posted a couple of his tracks already this week, but I figured I’d write a post bigging up the man himself. Douster gets his tribal and dancehall sound from cumbia villera, which is music from the shantytowns of Buenos Aires, and fuses it with catchy fidget and electro. A couple of us were lucky enough to hear him headlining a Mad Decent party with Diplo a few weeks ago at a pub in LA, where he brought the house down with one of the best sets I’ve seen in a year.
Check out the latest Douster remix which dropped last week on Rusko‘s Woo Boost EP:
