Dutch Disco don L’Equipe Du Son, still riding high on his recently released Transmissions album, is gearing up for the release of that records first single featuring the tracks Le Rocker and Snowballing and a whole host of reMixes. We already hit you with Emeron & Fox’s take in Le Rocker last month, so let’s check out two of the single’s other highlights featuring work from one of our favourite Parisian producers Moustache Machine and Germany’s finest, Final DJs.
Moustache Machine works his slick French groove on Le Rocker and morphs the track from a rough Electro stomper into an enticing robo-Disco floorfiller. Powered in equal parts by a driving, arpeggiated Italo bassline and a twisting Continental synth Funk hook. Working each element perfectly, Moustache Machine whips up a cyborg Disco storm that just keeps assaulting you with layers of intertwining melodies. Final DJs take on Snowballing and bring their synth love to the table on full effect. The SynthWave duo keep it steady and deliver waves of lush, warm synths and irresistible vintage beats. It;s a packed reMix package, six tracks, that makes a great compliment to the album.

Moonshine, from Germany’s finest Final DJs, is a track of theirs from last year which is now getting a full release this week courtesy of Pole Position Recordings out of Cardiff. You’ve read all about the smooth synth funk of the original before, so lets peep our beady eyes on a couple of the awesome reMixes that come bundled with Moonshine.
First up is the Dutch king of the Analog groove, Auxiliary Tha Masterfader. Aux delivers one of his trademark phat bassed jams. Big squelchy synths and vintage Disco grooves drive the track along until Aux is just about ready to drop some twisting solos on us. Playing with the originals solos Aux conjures up new melodic rhythms. Phunktastike’s contribution to the single takes the track down a more Disco-tinged House route. It’s feel good summery vibes all the way with this one, drop in a little laid back vocodering Like an updated Dreamwave vibe, this track merges a west coast nostalgic groove with a little Chicago feel. The single also comes equipped with a third reMix from Cram, it’s a package well worth picking up for some sunshine, or moonshine, vibes.

Germany’s finest, Final DJs, are set to release another new single next week. This time the Dreamwave duo are teaming up with Sweedish lover of 80s Funk, Gin Joints. The meeting of these minds can result in nothing but the finest smooth synth sounds. This is one to get you geared up for the weekend.
The single comes with a storming reMix package featuring some awesome work from Figure Of 8, Neon Workout, Knbtz and Gin Joints himself, but right now we can grab a listen to the original version wich sees Final DJs funking it out with a fat-as-hell synth boogie bass and shimmering chords. Gin Joints lays down some smooth vocals on the track and give it a classy, late night, vibe. Overall though, it’s be that bassline that’ll get you hooked. It’s hypnotic I tells ya. Also, did he just say “listen to some Chromeo”? I was kinda’ happy listening to Final DJs and Gin Joints.

Germany’s finest, Final DJs, really know how to take a track you already love, and give it a spin that bring it right up to date without loosing any retro cool. They have delivered once again with this storming reMix of Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s 1983 début, Relax. Trevor Horn produced slick 80s funk-Pop meets soaring synth Dreamwave Disco, a match made in heaven.
Frankie always had a somewhat Sci-Fi element to their brand, and Final DJs ramp that up considerable. This is Frankie Goes To Hollywood in the year 2019. A dance track that reaches the songs emotional core, bringing out this big chord progressions with layers of lush synths and a retro bassline, so powerful it moves you with each key change. The prefect platform of FgtH’s instantly recognisable tune, the track goes next level when the solo kicks in, from then on in the seven minute epic just soars, and you are helpless to resist being carried with it.

A collection of some of his finest tunes from around that time, the EP held four track worth of massive funky, space age Electro. Now it’s time to revisit Space Love, with a brand new reMix EP holding work from some of the top names on the scene.
Brooklyn synth heads Follow Me kick off the proceedings with a bouncy Italo version of the title track that delivers punchy beats and bass while managing to keep the Sci-Fi tone intact. Germany’s finest, Final DJs, bring a wonderful combination of soaring synths and infectious digital slap bass for their take on Far Far Away. Injecting the EP with an overdose of Disco, Final DJs work up a track that is electronically complex as it is soulful. 80s Stallone’s vintage 80s dancefloor workout version of Long Lost Love brings the core essence of SynthWave to the EP with wobbly chords and digital horns over an addictive Italo-esque groove. The EP leads off with a reMix of Stellar Kiss from Keenhouse. As you would expect, Keenhouse gets emotional and psychedelic with his synths, crafting a futuristic soundscape with a Jazzy twist and delivers the prefect EP closer.

LA smoothmeister Goldroom’s single before his last single, the Chella featuring Fifteen, was a reMixers dream. Chella’s nostalgic, passionate vocal is like a gift to a talented producer. So, unaspiringly the track has been reMixed by everyone under the sun. Is there room for one more? Well, there is if it is Germany’s Final DJs taking you on a slow-mo SynthWave oddessy. Eight minutes of synth bliss to follow.
Yes, we said eight minutes! Final DJs reMix is a epic tune that reins in the tempo compared to their usual output allowing the song to breathe. Pinned on an head nodding digital slap bassline, the track takes it’s great length to evolve throughout. Starting off with a relaxed beach vibe, Final DJs slowly add more and more elements associated with their traditional SynthWave tunes, playing off and around that Tropical Disco vibe to create something greater than the sum of tis parts.

Germany’s most synthtastic duo, Final DJs, are back with another brand new tune. these guys tend to put all kinds of stuff in their mixing bowl, this time around they’ve cooked up a little mix of French Touch and SynthWave, for a tune that is as nostalgic as it rocks hard.
They’ve got their filters sweeps working overtime on BMX Madness. It’s a track that sets the stage for their forthcoming new EP, the follow-up to their excellent Gossip Country EP, and it’s got everything you’d want from a big slice of French Disco-House. A rising filtered groove, a big retro riff and some squealing funk synths. Then things go a little 80s crazy with a wailing solo deposited right in the middle of proceedings, which sounds like it shouldn’t work, but Final DJs make it sound effortlessly right. a coursing high-point to an infectious dancefloor bomb.
