Another Month, another Solé Bicycles fixtape mix, another reason to be excited on this Monday that is currently being ruled by the marine layer floating just over my house. But fear not, rain or shine, Zimmer has concocted the ideal ingredients to put some funk in your phalanges and keep your mood sunny no matter what the weatherman says. The first half of the tape consists of rarities & new jams residing in the disco territory as the tape progresses things and gets a bit more housey. Dig in & vibe on, this one feels very good.

Pompeya, probably our favorite thing coming out of Russia since vodka, just released quite the single entitled “Power.” The single is jaw-dropping, and the collection of artists jumping onto remix duty is phenomenal, including the likes of: Mario Basanov, Lou Teti, Zimmer, & Lipelis. If thats not enough for you, there is a very limited run of 12” vinyls on Lou’s label, Tigers on a Leash, with hand-silkscreened art that can be bought HERE! Don’t sleep on this, you have the POWER!
Oy oy oy oy oy! Time for my first round of The Dirt and this time I am pairing up with my dear friend from down under, Andrew aka Ubbs from Stoney Roads. I’m sure you’re all aware of the Australian music blog so it’s truly our/my pleasure to have him on board to throw down some tracks for you lot. Feeling very, very UK with this one, be it with British producers or simply the UK vibe. Enjoy.
Between coming back home to Paris after a stay in Mexico and signing with Bond Music Group for bookings, the horizontal disco specialist, Zimmer, was kind enough to create this brand new Paris Plage Summer Tape. With flawless mixing and a tasteful tracklist, you’ll definitely be enjoying warmth and good vibes whether it’s sunny or not. Zimmer has earned the respect of many with his growing catalog of excellent productions as well as mixes, so I highly recommend that you check out this one below.

YOWSA. Our boy Zimmer really nailed it on this one. There are plenty of solid mixtapes floating around right now but Zimmer’s “Sage Paradis | May Tape” is TOP NOTCH. For anyone into slo-mo, deep, sexy disco + house, this mix is like a handbook of everything new & good over the last few months (along with some shiny hot-off-the-press gems). I mean seriously…Zimmer absolutely nailed this one. This mix is chock full of those “on repeat” tracks that you just can’t get enough of. ”Hémisphère” by Paradis? That’s in there. ”If You Only Knew” by Finnebassen? Yup, that’s in there, too. ”Running From” by Moon Boots? Yuh huh. How bout a Zimmer rework, two tracks by Auxiliary tha Masterfader, some Le Youth, new Flight Facilities and some brand new Poolside? Check, check, check, check and check.
When people talk about mixes with this style or vibe, they always seem to throw in phrases like “just in time for pool season” or “perfect for Summertime”. Well fuck all that: LISTEN TO THIS MIX ANYTIME, ANYWHERE. Daytime, nighttime, poolside, bedside – Zimmer’s horizontal disco mix will do you right.
If you are now a stranger to Zimmer, it will not be for long. The king of horizontal disco will soon be giving your girlfriend hard nips and make her hips move like the Caribbean Queen. His infectious beats are both soothing, yet funky, and are a breath of fresh air from the EDM norm. He is currently represented by North America’s premiere Disco label, Vitalic Noise, and has no plans of slowing down. I had a chance to kick it with him for a couple days and get the inside scoop on the future / past / and present of everything “Zimmer”. As an added bonus, he’s dropped off his newest mix tape and Horizontal Disco Remix Package which is incredibly amazing featuring the works of: Moullinex, Moon Boots, Broke One, Xinobi, Mercury, & Lou Teti.
Interview, Remix Package, & Mixtape After the Jump
“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.”

If you like your music toasty, funky, and feel-good, let me introduce to you Vitalic Noise’s: Zimmer. Horizontal disco king & the sultan of smooth. If you already know who he is, give yourself a pat on the back, you’re killing it. His first EP entitled ‘Horizontal Disco’ came out on Discotexas a few months back and is nothing short of amazing. His first remix ever he did for Moon boots of ‘Aretha’ is beyond amazing. Without further adu, here’s the tuneage.
The new “Aretha” EP by Moon Boots reads like a who’s who of artists who are set to have MONSTER years in 2012 (including Mr. Boots, himself). Remixers include GDD™ favorites ColeCo, Zimmer & Kid Color. All the remixes plus the original & dub come together delectably to create a groovy, smoothed-out EP full of underground disco vibes. The “Aretha” EP is out January 31st on Nervous Records.
