Jean Tonique brings his summery blend of french house and disco to the Crystal Fighters’s “Love Alight” with his new remix. He turns the track into a saccharine house groove with warm synths, big choruses, and a huge summery feel. It’s one of the funkiest tracks he’s dropped yet, and he’s offering it up as a free DL. Listen below:
Poolside, the LA based group whose musical focus is centered on the idea of “daytime disco,” are reaching out with an undeniably graceful and poppy remix of the first track from the forthcoming album by indie group Fool’s Gold.
Building from their usual style as remix artists, Poolside’s remix of “I’m In Love” contains a complex arrangement centered on sunny side up guitar licks, slamming bongoes and funked out drum kits, and a tender mantra sung from the lips of Luke Top. On first listen, one gathers memories of the first time they heard Talking Head’s “This Must Be the Place” or Paul Simon’s “Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes” as Poolside aims straight for the throwback vibe inspired by tribal beats, bone rippling basslines, and breezy, melodic bliss which eventually culminates into a tonic for the soul. This edit is merriment and rapture incarnate.
Grab it for free download via Poolside’s SoundCloud and be sure to support Fool’s Gold’s independent release “Flying Lessons” when it’s released.
Luke Million offers up one of his best tracks with “Light & Sound.” The producer who’s made a name for himself with retro tinged and synth filled disco homages is gearing up to release a new Ep for etcetc, with “Light & Sound” being the first single. The track is nu disco at it’s finest. Breezy, summer filled synths over a funky bass line and playful pop vocal. It hits right up there with Flight Facilities’s “Foreign Language” in terms of feel good. Listen below:
Honestly might be the best of the entire summer, maybe sweeter since it signifies the final few moments we have of the sun and warmth. Buffalo-based Solidisco are absolute OGs when it comes to hard-hitting nu disco and french house, and this mix is a synopsis of the new and old that influences them and their followers (like me). It drops Modjo’s “Lady,” Kill the Noize’s “Perfect Combination” and Bag Raider’s “Shooting Stars.” This mix is no joke. It doesn’t hurt that Solidisco are one helluva duo who has been dropping bombs for years now, its a must listen!
If you’ve haven’t heard of Keljet then you need to must check this track out. Dutch duo Keljet champion one awesome sound that blends nu disco, indie dance, deep house and uptempo pop that makes every single one of their tracks SO danceable. I first heard them sometime back and everything they drop now is a must listen. This song combines energetic synth chords with high bpm to accompany a funky, soul chorus. Seriously..hear this!
