This past WMC, we had Yuksek slated to play at two of our parties. We were devastated to learn that the Frenchman had to cancel all his WMC dates to illness, so we’re elated to announce that he will finally be performing on the red carpet at Bardot this Thursday in Miami. Supporting Yuksek will be UK bliss-pop sensation Chad Valley, who is set to release his debut album ‘Young Hunger’ on October 30th. Pre-sale tickets for the event are $12.

After the release of Peter & The Magician‘s “Memory,” Pierre-Alexandre Busson is back at it under the Yuksek name. The Edge EP contains all of the great french disco flavor that we have come to expect from such a high-caliber artist. If that wasn’t enough, there are also a handful of awesome remixes from Panteros666, Aeroplane, Beni, and KIM to keep it a well-rounded release. Check out the previews after the jump.
Ever since The Magician‘s fabled set at HARD Summer I had been scrounging the internet looking for the track he opened with. With no luck and a full years passing, I finally had the chance to ask him in person. His answer was better than i could have imagined, “Tomorrow.” This is the newest jam from Yuksek and Steven’s project, Peter & the Magician, entitled: “Memory.” Its out on Kitsune July 9th and packed with remixes by Pointdexter, NSFW, and Le Crayon. Enjoi.

Nobody is having a bigger year than Mr. Stephen Fasano, aka The Magician. From the massive success of his monthly Magic Tapes series and his stellar list of remixes to his collaboration with Yuksek as Peter & The Magician and back around to his original production & busy touring schedule, The Magician has done it all in 2011. Gotta Dance Dirty™ recently had a chance to catch up with their favorite supernatural artiste and get a glimpse of what’s behind that mysterious cloud of smoke.
Please note: This interview was conducted right before Stephen suffered a freak accident at the hands of a deranged fan, so we were not able to ask him about the incident. But rest assured, after catching his set at HARD Haunted Mansion this weekend in LA, The Magician is fully recovered and at the top of his craft. He dropped a magnetic + memorable set that was surely one of the weekend’s finest.
Check out the GDD™ interview with The Magician after the jump…
I need to get me one of these shirts! Happy Monday GDD™ people! After one serious bender of a weekend, I am back to the grind and ready to give you all some great tunes to start the week off right. Check out this 5 pack of remixes from some of the top artists in the game right now.
• Light Year – Marcellus (Malente Remix) √+
Our buddies from Oz are coming out with a HUGE remix release this Friday, July 15th on Bang Gang Records. The package features remixes from Harvard Bass, Strip Steve, Alex Gopher, The Finger Prince, and of course Malente. Give this groovin’ House track the volume it deserves and head over to the brand new Light Year website for more info.
• Chromeo – When The Night Falls (Hercules And Love Affair Remix)
I posted the Breakbot remix of this track last week which had the standard Disco feel to it. This rendition from Hercules And Love Affair throws in a pretty catchy synth lead in the mix. Give it a go.
• Little Dragon – Ritual Union (Tensnake Remix) [Beatport]
The Swedish band, Little Dragon, released the EP for ‘Ritual Union’ last week on Peacefrog Records, featuring touch-ups from Tensnake, Maya Jane Coles, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Tensnake turns the tempo down in this remix to create a really great track. Grab Little Dragon’s full length album on July 26th.
Azari & III – Manic [The Finger Prince 'Static Situation' remix] by PurplePR
Great new remix from Bang Gang rep, The Finger Prince. Can’t wait for this release.
Tropicool, radicool, sun-kissed nation vibration. Coconuts and mindtai’s. Heads in the clouds and your feet in the water. Babes in bikini’s, cool pool parties, and crackin’ freshies at the beach with your toes in the sand. Which brings me to my next point. Why don’t you sexy ladies out there wear the 80′s retro thong bikinis arching high above your thighs, that truely accentuate those dirty dancin’ stems of yours? Bring it back, please, we beg you.
Here’s the tenth installment of Waves ≠ Raves, and might actually be my favorite compilation of the bunch. So be rad, don’t tell dad, and do the jungle boogie.
“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.”
Waves ≠ Raves Vol. 10 after the Jump
Today, 4/20, is considered by many to be their favorite national holiday. It’s such a revered holiday that it doesn’t even need a name. It’s simply referred to as 4/20. And what better way to honor this special day than with a song craftsman whose name means “high” in Turkish: Yuksek.
As you may have already read here, Yuksek’s 2011 is about to go OFF. Along with teaming up with The Magician for the super duo known as Peter & The Magician, Yuksek will also be releasing his “On A Train” EP complete with 3 brand new tracks + remixes by The Magician & Gucci Vump (Gucci Vump = The Shoes + Brodinski). WOW.
Marinate on that for just a quick second…now GO!
The “On A Train” EP will be available May 2nd via Label Barclay.
POOF! —> A MAGICAL BONUS TRACK:
Yet another mysterious yet magical mixtape by none other than The Magician. It’s kind of like the anticipation of Christmas combined with the allure of a disappearing act. This particular mix features exclusives from Steven himself including Yuksek – On a train (Magician Remix) and Peter & The Magician – Twist. Peter & The Magician is actually a collaboration EP project between Yuksek and Steven that we can expect to drop in June.
And if you happen to hail from Mexico, definitely make it out to a Magic show. Here’s a radical trailer made by Seb Rekorder for the tour.
