[Audio] Cosmonaut Grechko reMixes Tesla Boy’s ‘Paraffin’

 

tesla-boy_thumb1

Remember how Russian ElectroPop heroes Tesla Boy’s last album, The Universe Made Of Darkness, was one of our favourite albums of 2013? Well now that amazing record is getting spiced up by all manner of reMixes in the just released The Universe Made of Darkness: Night Version. On the new album you’ll find work from he likes of Xinobi, Piorneerball and 7th Myriads. To celebrate the release the guys have dropped this reMix of Paraffin from the superb Cosmonaut Grechko.

Grechko get’s his House on in a major way. The man’s latest tunes have all been incredibly complex Chicago House jams that feel totally authentic whilst bringing the sound up to speed, and that’s what he does right here. Full of Grechko’s popping purcussion and deep, warbling bass, the track flows perfectly with Anton’s vocal and injects it with a piano hook as classic as any you’ve heard.

02 Kids At Midnight - Unashamed-Vapours (Single) - Cover

Here it is! The long awaited return of the finest name in Australian Deep ElectroPop; Kids At Midnight.

A singer/songwriter/producer whose reputation precedes her, Jane Elizabeth Hanley, A.K.A. Kids At Midnight, released her début EP, Let You Slide (back in 2012 via Alan Braxe’s Vulture Music label) to critical acclaim whilst simultaneously becoming the Nu-Disco scene’s voice-in-demand; featuring on Edwin Van Cleef’s massive cover of Phoenix’s Lisztomania and Ride The Universe’s A Little Better amongst many others.

Now Kids At Midnight is poised to unleash a brand new double A-side single. Two lush, emotive and rich tracks that blur the boundaries between Deep House, ElectroPop, Nu-Disco, and Indie-Electro. Unashamed and Vapours. If you like your dance music song based, epic and passionate then this release will be unmissable.

A selection of reMixes tune the tracks for every dancefloor with Holmes Price bringing a retro Boogie to Unashamed whilst So Serious (the Deep House alter ego of Phunktastike) give the track an enigmatic groove. Vapours is given a spacey Tropical Tech House workout by Daniel Högberg of Pacific! and a beach party Disco send off by LA’s Dreamwave originator Touch Tone.

[Audio] Borneland reMix Ena’s ‘Deep Seas’

 

Ena

Jonas & Micki, A.K.A Danish production duo Borneland have been gradually drip feeding a whole load of killer reMixes in the past few months, and with their latest they’ve really outdone themselves. The latest muse for their skills is the current, and début solo, single from ex-Fagget Fairys’ Elena Cosovic, now going by the name of Ena. The track’s called Deep Seas and Borneland certainly take both the deep and the seas to heart on this one.

It you’re looking for something pulsating and synthetic then look no further. Elena’s vocal is a near perfect husky croon. Smokey, sublime and effortlessly eased into Borneland’s laid back Disco groove. A pure summer evening vibe permeates the whole tune; from it’s solid dancefloor rhythm to it’s layers of sweet, warm synths Borneland’s reMix of Deep Seas conjures a carefree, lazy Disco atmosphere and a rich soundtrack.

[Video] Charli XCX’s ‘Break The Rules’

 

Charli XCX   Break The Rules  Official Video    YouTube

This time last week Charli XCX gave us the first taste of her just announced sophomore album, Sucker. That track, the rabble-rousing Break The Rules, has now itself a video.

A video which is almost exactly what you would expect. Whilst the song, and the clip, are pretty awesome, we’re kinda’ hoping that Charli’s recent assentation to US collaborative fame doesn’t stop her from being the producer of some of the most interesting Pop around. The occasional Break The Rules is great; but more Nuclear Seasons and You’re The One please.

Charli XCX’s Sucker is released 21st October.

[Audio] Ku De Ta’s ‘You’re The One’

 

Ku De Ta (Feat. Elesha Moses)

Here’s the latest one from London Deep groovers Ku De Ta. You may remember these guys from their absolutely storming version of Soul II Soul’s Back to Life (However Do You Want Me) a couple of months ago that seriously impressed us, now they’ve teamed up with singer Elesha Moses for their brand new track, You’re the One. Hold tight, ‘cos this one’s flying.

Aimed squarely at the dancefloor, You’re The One takes Deep and Chicago House elements and toughens them up. Punchy beats and utterly irresistible bassline dominate the tune; sitting powerfully alongside piano hooks and waves of lush pads. The whole tracks is a floorfilling powerhouse who’s hard edge is tempered somewhat by Moses’ soulful vocal. Only two tracks into their career and already Ku De Ta are setting themselves up as ones to watch.

[Audio] Yelle’s ‘Complètement Fou’

 

yelle

Following the advance teaser, Bouquet Final, Complètement Fou is the first proper release from the forthcoming album of the same name from French ElectroPop trio Yelle. The band’s third album is released at the end of next month, The album has been coproduced by ubiquitous US producer Dr. Luke, and, more than with Bouquet Final, it shows on this lead single.

With a nice line in 90s Pop-House keys and pounding dancefloor drums, Complètement Fou still retains many of the French Electro tropes that we love Yelle for, and Yelle herself lets her personality shine though as always. Whether these elements are straining not to get lost in the shiny American Pop is a question we’ll consider when we get to hear the whole album. So far though, we’re enjoying the singles. Personally, we think Yelle would probably be better off without Dr. Luke (as anybody would!), but we’re still kinda excited to hear the album in it’s entirety.

Yelle’s Complètement Fou is released 30th September.

[Audio] Colour Vision’s ‘Sur Chic’ (+ Fishing Vest reMix)

 

Colour Vision

Just released is the début release from San Diego born, Palm Spring residing, producer Corey James Hurley; who some of your may recognise by the name Colour Vision (interestingly, he’s American and spells ‘Colour’ the English way, while we are English and spell ‘Rumors’ the American way; we have a really good reason for doing it, we wonder if Cory has too?) who has been spending the last few months making a name for himself with a string of well received reMixes. His première single is titles Sur Chic, and comes equipped with reMixes from Fishing Vest, DWTR and Rambo V.

Sur Chic is a deep and groovy tune that sits at the nexus point between Chicago House and Tropical Disco. This one is all about the woody bassline and some seriously upbeat Tropical keys. Whipping up a jam that would work equally well in a warehouse party as it would poolside Colour Vision deftly manoeuvres rolling purcussion, lilting electric piano and distant vocal snatches amidst his dancefloor frenzy. Fishing Vest returns to give the track an extra layer of Funk and a retro, robotic sheen. Giving it more of a West Coast sound, Fishing Vest weaves a little Dreamwave though the track; taking it straight to the beach.

[Audio] Joe Goddard reMixes Tensnake and Jacques Lu Cont’s ‘Feel Of Love’

 

tensnake

German retro House producer Tensnake’s sublime début album, Glow, is currently holding at number two on our top albums of the year list, beating some severe competition, and shows no signs of being usurped in it’s runner up position. It’s an amazing record packed full of highlights, one of them being his collaboration with the legend Jacques Lu Cont and Jamie Lidell; Feel Of Love. The track is getting a full single release next month with some storming reMixes, one of which you can check out below, it’s a doozy!

Hot Chip and The 2 Bears’ Joe Goddard takes up the challenge of making one of this year’s soulful House classics his own; and does. This one is an eight minute epic that wastes none of it’s time. From the offset with track begins to build an intricate analog groove, deep beats layering with buzzing synths. Easing the original’s vocals into the tune, Goddard give you half the track’s length to settle into the vibe before launching into a massive, hands-in-the-air, synthesizer symphony that never drops the energy ball.
