Future Classic have gone back in their archives and given remix duties of Touch Sensitive’s ever enjoyable “Body Stop” over to living legend Derrick Carter as part of their Reissue Project. The result is a super funky house rework rinsed with retro synths and a rubbery bassline. It’s a great cut of Chicago house that comes as a great surprise from one of our favorite labels. Take a listen below and do your best to avoid paying $100 (!) to get ahold of the track:
I’m so glad London-based producer Tensnake, whose also one of my favorite names in the ENTIRE dance game, decided to share this special edition of “Feel of Love” by none other than Union BBQ-favorite Kaytranada. This track oozes funk as its vocals are submersed in deep percussion cuts overlaid with symphonic synths and hard snares. This is an awesome track that is sure to keep bodies groovin’ as the day sets into the night…
Indie dance group and Future Classic favorites, Panama, are gearing up for their European tour. Lucky for us that means their giving us a free download of their new track “Stay Forever.” The song is a lush synth pop take reminiscent of groups like M83 and Future Cop. Lead singer, Jarrah McCleary’s sleepy vocals are set against a warm backdrop of glistening synths and retro sounds, all played over a driving 80s tinged beat. Take a listen below and grab the track for free:
The ever awesome team of The Alexanders, consisting of Yuksek and Alex Metric, is back with their next single “Pwoin Pwoin Pwoin.” Their first track “Don’t Miss” is still one of my most played tracks months later, so I was pretty ecstatic to have a new release from them. The groove for “Pwoin Pwoin Pwoin” is a DFA friendly, disco-tinged house beat capitalizing on warm synth swells, playful blips, and retro synth leads. It’s a really enjoyable cut that ends up somewhere between early Fred Falke and Lxury. Take a listen below:
Another funked out remix from nu disco OG Jean Tonique, and this one is something to ride to. There were a lot of mixes to this track but this french touched vibe takes the vocals to the next level. Take a listen!
