This may be an old one, but I stumbled on it again today and it hit the spot. Justin Martin and his slightly deep-house, bass-y hit “Don’t Go”. The bass line of this song is absolutely infectious and I kind of wanted it to go all day.
Bondax’s new release this month brought us a tropical themed, deep-house gem that shakes you to the bone. Today, we stumbled onto a British newcomer calling himself TCTS who put his own touch on ‘All I See’. With a simple and effective bouncy, piano-centric remix this one made me stop and take notice. The two versions are different enough that we won’t make you choose between them – keep them both on your playlist. That’s always what we like to see in a good remix and we’ll be keeping an eye on TCTS in the near future.
Today the music blogosphere witnessed a special treat. A couple of days ago RAC slapped his name on this summer’s anthem “Classic” that has been blasting throughout clubs and cars for the better part of the month. Well today the party duo of The Knocks hit Anjos (RAC) right back with their take on his track from earlier this spring “Cheap Sunglasses”. As far as the music trade goes there seem to be no embargos. Quite the opposite actually as listeners continue to benefit from the free exchange of talent and creativity among artists and perhaps even among friends in this case. This is what we love.
Our personal favorite Oliver Nelson is at it again, this time working his magic on the new Tobtok track “Higher”. A couple of real strong duos here – Tobtok teamed up with Emil Heró the first time around on the original and Oliver Nelson has teamed up with newcomer Skogsrå here on the rework. That all may sounds like a bunch of gibberish and maybe it is but as long as O.N. is involved we’re into it. Check it out, you won’t be led astray.
Our deep house aficionado KANT helps us continue the YOTS trend (Year of the Sax) this week with his rendition of the Saint Motel track “My Type”. It’s definitely a deeper and darker take on the big-band, indie-pop original and I’m into it. The deep synth and sax melody is a combo that’s been hot this year and this remix from the deep-house Dane continues the trend.
New release from Panama yesterday. These guys are on my short list of bands I’d like to see live and they’re on my long list of groups that can do no wrong. To be fair, the entire Future Classic camp falls into that category. If you’re hitting play on a Panama track you’re going to like it. Period.
Two very different sounds coming in today’s tracks, both are the creation of one man, Mr. Charles Perrono, otherwise known as KarlK, a music producer out of France. The remix brings more of a reggae, deep dub sound, perfect for the commute, behind a desk, or sitting on the beach. His original work has a trancier feel and fits nicely with today’s rainy weather in NYC. Enjoy.
You can thank Disclosure, again, for the song that just keeps on giving. Serious credit goes to TEEMID and Daniela Andrade for one hell of a cover here, putting their own style and love to the always beautiful ‘Latch’. Disclosure goes on at Outside Lands in about an hour but if you’re not there hopefully this can cheer you up. Have a great weekend everybody.
Forget a House of Love, welcome to a DEEP House of Love. TJANI brings it with this in your face remix of the now classic Cut Copy track. I love Cut Copy so much I almost expected this remix to be blasphemous but wow was I wrong. If you’re going to remix a song as good as this you’d better go all the way. TJANI did.
