French future funk upstart, Kartell, just dropped his take on Snoop Dogg’s “Drop It Like It’s Hot.” The track sports the trademark sound that has grown to define Roche Musique’s roster, and makes for a super funky and vibed out rework. Lush synth swells and a staggered feeling 4/4 support Snoop’s vocals resulting in space age r&b jam with heavy disco tendencies. Check it out below:
Nu disco producer, Jean Tonique, has been turning the heat up recently with a series of disco edits released as free downloads. The latest is a rework of Raphael Saadiq’s “Get Involved,” featuring the legendary Q-Tip. The original is soulful enough as it is, but Tonique adds the perfect amount of funk with a slow and lazy 4/4 groove and funky disco bass line. The track is super summery and a nice addition to Tonique’s edit series. Take a listen below and make sure to check out the rest of the tracks while you’re at it:
Lukas Lyrestam’s All I Think About EP is finally out, and with it, Monitor 66’s excellent remix of the title track. Monitor 66 turns the track into a low key house number with breezy summer vibe, mellow deep house bass groove, and airy atmospherics. It’s doesn’t stray too far from the original, but it cools it down very nicely and smoothes out the disco vibe. Grab it now on Stockholm’s Oh! Records:
Blisspop favorite, Lane 8, just dropped a tasty new remix of Josh Record’s “Pictures In The Dark.” He manages to combine a pretty and almost-progressive house feel with the light-hearted breeziness of an indie dance track. The song revolves around a piano line that’s coupled with a nice low end counterpart and airy synths to fill all the other spaces. The sparseness of the vocals makes for a nice chorus that adds an instantly memorable hook to the track. Take a listen below and come see Lane 8 on April 30th at U Street Music Hall:
Dany Kole is a new producer coming our way from Moscow. He makes sexy retro tinged nu disco tracks with a tendency for big, sexy bass lines and tropical vibes.
