Hot off winning the Galantis remix competition with their excellent rework of “Runaway (U + I),” west coast duo LBCK have dropped a free remix of Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It.” It’s super funky with a hefty serving of disco bass and french house flair. It’s the perfect thing to get the floor moving and one of the more enjoyable remixes we’ve heard of this track. Check it out below:
French Horn Rebellion have completely crushed the nu disco game with a funked out remix of Catey Shaw’s “Human Contact.” Slap bass and upbeat guitar work with retro flavored synths to set the vocals on fire for one of the catchiest tracks we’ve heard yet this year. It’s been steadily climbing the charts, and there’s not much question why.
FHR are also set to headline U Street Music Hall this coming Thursday. Their shows are guaranteed parties, so you definitely don’t want to miss out, especially with Blisspop’s Caleb L’Etoile opening. Check out their mix for Thump below to help get you in the mood and grab tickets HERE
A good song is a good song but a good song produced by a refined, meticulous producer is just infinitely better.
blank body aka Bine created the perfect backing to let singer-songwriter Kaya’s blissful lyrics float at the front.
Kaya’s mystical, dreamy vocals lays perfectly over blank body’s gorgeous composition of echoing piano notes and legato snaps. She has the same sultriness as Lana Del Rey but is beautifully sleepy and lustrous.
Kaya will soon be putting out an EP but until then, just listen to “Untitled” and the rest of her equally dreamy, floating on a cloud-like tracks on soundcloud (“High Wire” is highly recommended).
The French act Prizm has been on the Blisspop radar for a while now, but with a new EP on the horizon from this self-declared ‘future-disco’ duo, we couldn’t help but share the details of their latest tantalizing cut.
“Perception,” the second track off their upcoming Poly EP, washes the dancefloor with an indie dance glow recently seen by acts like JackLNDN and Keljet that combines elements of funk, 80′s synthpop, and light complextro. Featuring brassy keys, a menagerie of spaced out vocal samples, and graceful percussion, “Perception” might just be Prizm’s best track to date and another reason why we can’t wait for the release of Poly.
Listen to Prizm’s newest concoction below and be sure to give them a follow on Facebook for more details on their pending release.
