YOOO party people, sorry for the two-week hibernation! However enough with the excuses, I’m back with a bunch of jamz that are meant to take you through the rest of this short week. Enjoy!
The Weeknd – Can’t Feel My Face (Keljet Edit)
Keljet is reaching untouchable Nu Disco heights, especially at this point in the game. This track is one of the best bootlegs/edits I’ve heard to an already awesome pop song from The Weeknd — listen to the original if you haven’t already…
Oliver Heldens & Shaun Frank — Shades of Grey
Much credit goes to Mr. Heldens, who is quickly becoming one of the best producers in the entire House/Dance genre. His witty assembly of groovy vocals and tunes on top of hardcore, dancefloor-breaking basslines has made him a prototype of success. “Shades of Grey” is an amalgamation of all that’s stated before and is an example of what I mean.
ON AN ON — It’s Not Over (The Twelves Remix)
An absolute, funk-filled monster of a remix that brings a highly sensual, groovy feel. The soft vocals is perfectly meshed on to romantic, Daft Punk-esque synth chords and just-deep enough bass. Must listen if you’re a fan of Indie Dance or French House.
Kaytranada — Girl
Man, how to even describe this track? It’s simply good music. Hip hop BPM with soul vocals on a chill wave vibe — it just sounds SO good to the ears.
MIX OF THE WEEK: Cherokee’s Cherotape III for Luxuriant Magazine
Funk. Funk. Funnnnnnnnnk. Cherokee knows what Too Funk Tuesday is all about.
The Rooftop Boys have released a remix of Sam Feldt’s cover of the Robin S standard “Show Me Love.” The Rooftop Boys remix brings back more of the house elements from the original 1993 version of the song while adding a more upbeat tempo and groove versus Sam Feldt’s laid back, atmospheric approach. This is the tropical house kind of vibe perfect for all your summer parties and outdoor gatherings.
Listen to the Rooftop Boys’ remix of Sam Feldt’s “Show Me Love” below.
Duncan Stump aka Coral D, one half of Mock & Toof, has just released a new remix of Sinkane’s “New Name” on DFA Records. Coral D takes Sinkane’s soulful vocals and adds them to a minimal house backdrop creating an evolving soundscape of lush reverb, soaked piano fills, and filter swept percussion hits. One cannot help but fall into a soothing dreamy trance listening to this track as it progresses from start to finish.
Listen to the Coral D remix below and be sure to visit DFA’s SoundCloud for the free download.
Another week, another Eau Claire remix. After a spectacular showing at Firefly this past weekend, the D.C. Queen of Feel Good is hitting the production game with a vengeance. Her newest remix, Saint Motel‘s “My Type,” gets the proper Eau Claire treatment. Instead of her signature keys, however, the remix is littered with fluttery, panned out, arpeggiated synth notes and cool use of tropical notes that will complement the current heatwave like ketchup complements french fries. It’s a very symphonic, bright, uplifting edit that brings to mind some other tropical producers at the top of their game right now like Sam Feldt or Nora En Pure: it can dominate during the sunset hours and ensnare after a long night of raving. It’s pure. It’s delicate. It’s dreamy. At this point, we know an Eau Claire track when we hear it and it’s always a cue to check your worries at the door.
A week ago, Brooklyn-based DJ/Producer Moon Boots dropped a funk bomb via Annie Mac’s Soundcloud and we’re still recovering here at Blisspop. It has every ingredient a Moon Boots track calls for: smooth vocals, beautiful melodies, and a groovy bass line. If you’re a fan of classic Moon Boots, you’ll click your heels to this – listen to and pick it up for free here:
