Blisspop veterans Will Eastman and Caleb L’Etoile made some serious waves in the indie dance scene earlier this year after releasing their gorgeous Jean-Luc Godard inspired track “Breathless.” They have recently come back with a new collab in the form of a sparkling, electropop retooling of the already infectious track “Classless Kids” by indie upstarts Young Summer.
Hitting the ground running from the get-go, the track starts off with powerful synths and a great kick to complement the vocals before descending into sugary pads and basslines that are so energetic it could revive Mia Wallace faster than John Travolta with an adrenaline shot. The track, overall, has a light essence to it which suggests a certain accommodation for pop sensibility that is sometimes lost in the indie dance or deep house circles – both of which are places that both Mr. Eastman and Mr. L’Etoile have been known to reside and demonstrate their talents. But it’s this very element that makes their work unique: it’s as if their awareness of the scene informs them to take dynamite risks to achieve a sound they both love and share resulting in a sort of magnetism that sits below the surface of their collaborations.

Following his smash, “Everybody Together,” newcomer Nickey Night Time is ready for his next chart topper, taking on Shadow Child and Doorly’s hit of the year, “Piano Weapon.” The song uses the vocals from the “Climbin” version of the song, and turns the track into a high energy piano house stomper that ends up being straight dance floor fire. His version actually fits the vocals a bit better than the original did, making for an irresistible 5 minutes. Listen below:
