City Feeling is the new tune from Australian ElectroPop duo Yale. These guys have slowly but surely making a name for themselves over the past year or so mixing up SynthPop, Nu-Disco and breezy beach sounds in a handful of well received singles. This latest release, City Feeling, was mixed by one of our favourite Aussie producers, and one we don’t nearly hear enough from these days, G.L.O.V.E.S.. Give it a listen.
We’re treated here to some slick, sunkissed, SynthPop with a Disco tinge. Boyant synths and Disco licks introduce you to the track that heaps on the groove in truck-loads. From the rolling Island percussion to the carefree synth stabs, this one is a surefire summer burner, capturing that urban sunshine playfulness needed for a top-down anthem. Yale’s breakthrough tune? Maybe so.
G.L.O.V.E.S.. Now there’s a dude who doesn’t release nearly enough tunes for sate out appetite for his music. The Australian Nu-Disco staple’s productions never fail to impress and, particularly on a Friday, get us in the mood for the weekend. His latest work is a reMix of Melbourne Tip-Hop outfit Passerine’s Paris Morning.
Mixing up a little bouncy House and a little poolside Disco into one synth funk fuelled whole, G.L.O.V.E.S. transforms the deep, atmospheric original into a dancefloor mover. This reMix is like a Chicago House track with added Disco swing. The 909 beats, organ riff and punchy digital bassline are all straight out of the classic House playbook, but the smokey vocals and carefree daytime swing give the track a definite mirrorball vibe. A nice combination of genres coming together to birth a good-times floorfiller.
Perth Indie new-comers Sun City certainly know how to pick their reMixers. The seems to be working through a who’s-who of Australian electronic music talent. First it was Disco demon SHAZAM!, then the king of down-under SynthWave Jordan F unleashed his version of their track Zoetrope, now Aussie Nu-Disco legend G.L.O.V.E.S. has whipped up their new tune, Horizon’ into a smooth beach-party tune.
Apparently the reMix was inspired by the current climate in Australia, by “the last month of beach raves, boat parties, rooftop pools & balmy evenings”, which makes us insanely jealous as, being in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s pretty chilly here. But G.L.O.V.E.S. brings a little of that sunshine vibe to our foggy winter morning with a slick, laid-back, groove. Dropping in hints of the original’s vocals amongst wicked Disco licks and warm 70s synth sounds G.L.O.V.E.S. a sexy House tinged Nu-Disco tune that we’ll be saving up for our summer.
Hey everyone, G.L.O.V.E.S. is back! That’s a pretty awesome end of week surprise. Things have been pretty quiet from this Australian producer these past twelve months but he’s just released a reMix of Swedish Pop duo Rebecca & Fiona’s single Luminary Ones he did last summer and is now offering as a download. G.L.O.V.E.S. is one of the best in the Dreamwave/Nu-Disco game and his name is always a sign of a top tune.
G.L.O.V.E.S. whips up the best in summery synth music with this track. All hard kicks and lush synths this mix of Luminary Ones has got a big of a Digital Love feeling to it but with more of a jump-up-and-dance vibe. G.L.O.V.E.S. is the master of summery retro dance music, and right here things are no different. Always the best.
Is it just me or has it been ages since we last heard from G.L.O.V.E.S.? It seems like, but fear not as he;’s back with this reMix of Mr. Jigga’s ‘Won’t U B Mine?’.
This track was featured on Plastic Plates’ February mix and we’ve been eager to hear the whole thing since them. It’s was immediately standout with it’s coursing, infectious bass riff and smooth vocals. Tropical with a dirty twist, G.L.O.V.E.S. has managed to create a track that has all the slick, sexy, beach party groove you want but with a gritty rawness to it.

G.L.O.V.E.S. is one of those producers we just never hear enough from, I swear every one of his productions has completely nailed it.
The same goes for his latest work, a reMix of, fellow Australian’s, the Indie band Gold Fields. Just check out that bassline, pure big Moog Disco Funk, laying down a solid backing for some really unique parts. G.L.O.V.E.S. stands out from the pack with a whole load of interesting riffs and sounds that play off each other in the mix, all of which perfects matches the tone of the song and the reMix effortlessly follows the vocals making them sound like the were always supposed to be together.
Kimbra is really pushing the release of her infection new single ‘Cameo Lover’ with another storming reMix.
This time Australian uber-producer G.L.O.V.E.S. takes the reins. I love seeing what people do with this track, the original has got a quirky 60’s vibe to it and when that vocal rhythm slides of some slick Nu-Disco, as it does here, it make for quite a unique sound. Like Shook’s reMix this track has it’s own take on the tune, it’s a sparkly Disco track that makes the right decision in keeping Kimbra’s vocal intact and it perfect for good times with friends.
Today sees the release of the long awaited new EP from Nu-Disco producer extraordinaire Justin Faust.
Dropping on Discotexas, the ‘Girl Talk’ EP is paced with three tracks and another three reMixes from some of the biggest names in the game. The whole thing is top quality, slickly produced, Electro Disco goodness. The title track is a solid groover with enough funk in its low end and sparkle in it’s top to keep any party jumping. Alongside that monster is ‘High Hopes’, a beautiful synthesizer journey, more mid-tempo and dreamlike than Faust’s usual output but a welcome interlude in the middle in a storing EP. It’s chilled retro sound working as the heart of the EP. Amongst others reMixes come from Bit Funk, who’s filtered Disco blazes through ‘Girl Talk’ and takes it straight to the danceflooor. Doesn’t even buy it a drink first!. Australia’s awesome G.L.O.V.E.S. brings a nice mix-up between Disco and 90’s House which teases you until it kicks back in, after the piano breakdown, with full on synth Funk.

There’s also another original tracks and a massive Dub reMix from Herr Styler on the EP, go check it out!
It’s got cool ElectroPop, Dancefloor sensibilities, and a monkey in the video. I get the feeling Bag Raiders’ forthcoming new single ‘Sunlight’ is gonna’ do well.
The reMix package has got one or two gems contained within too. Check this mix by fellow Australians G.L.O.V.E.S.. You know the G.L.O.V.E.S. name is a mark of quality and what you get here is no exception. Smooth Nu-Disco sounds to while away the night with a shuffling beat. this is the stuff to make you forget about the cold and dance in the snow!
Radio INK are an in-your-face ElectroPop act from Sydney, Australia, who are pretty well known on their home turf but defiantly need some worldwide exposure.
The trio are about to release their third single, ‘Physical’, which is produced by hyper-talented Diamond Cut (who reMixed their last two singles) and features reMixes by the cream of down under talent. The awesome Muffin, who has been far too quiet of late, brings his massive sounding Nu-Disco flavour to the track with some massive pads and killer bass. G.L.O.V.E.S. drops more of a late night Disco vibe. Injecting the sexy to Muffin’s euphoria. Moonchild round off the package with their Filter-House workout. All three mixes keep much of the song itself intact making for thee awesome ElectroPop tracks. This single is recommended!
