Australian/Swedish Say Lou Lou duo are currently riding the wave of success with their current single Julian. In order to commemorate the critically acclaimed track, the girls are giving away a free reMix bundle featruing some choice cuts from some interesting artists. Here’s out favourite two.
Australian Nu-Disco Lancelot producer can always be counted on to deliver the goods, and with his take on Julian he’s gone off in a deep, almost Bleep, House direction and totally nails the sound. Pulsating subsonic basses and warm filtered organs swirl around the track. A lavish palette of rounded sounds fill every corner of the mix, spellbinding warehouse grooves and seedy beats create an air of danger and mystery that allows the girls vocal to take on a new, moody, aspect. The Bleep House riff is pretty killer too. Newcomers The Chainsmokers, in contrast, bring the full on, uplifting, dance-party sheen which teeters on the edge of cheesy when compared to Lancelot’s mix, but you can’t help but smile to this one. Those two aren’t all that included in the free bundle, you can download the whole thing here.
Fresh Australian producer Lancelot, who released the awesome We Can Dance last year on Binary, has just unexpectedly made his return with this lush, Housy Disco tune. The free download comes after quite a period of relative quiet front he man, but that’s fine, we here are big believers in quality over quantity and think the current culture of having to release all the time is harmful for fans and producers alike. right here Lancelot proves why it’s best to take your time and get it right, he definitely brings the quality.
Higher Ground mixes up deep House vibes with Tropical Disco feel, which makes for a euphoric, feel-good, but irresistibly dancey tune. Hypnotic, but funky the track wraps you in it’s arms and doesn’t let go until the dance is over. this is truly one to get lost in on the dancefloor. We’re hoping that 2013 is a year we will hear a lot more from Lancelot.
Jerry Bouthier’s new imprint Continental Records is just going from strength to strength with a flood of amazing releases. The latest of which will be the new single from Japanese EelctroPop duo Kill The Hero, a storming track called Surrender.
Surrender is a majestic, huge ElectroPop track, played out with heaps of drama. Created by Osaka DJs Taku Hero and Kila and featuring a guest turn from ’80’s Pop legends Scarlet Fantastic’s Maggie K De MondeSurrender brings big retro flavour to a sweeping dancefloor tune that mixes in a little House, a lot of Pop and an infectious hook. The reMix package is pretty stunning too. Highlights include Reflex’s groovy ElectroPop mix, full of stabbing synths and pumping bass, the return of Australia’s SHAZAM! with a hypnotic House track that mixes a ‘90’s sound with SHAZAM!’s Disco leads, Lancelot’s deep, Acid tinged, ‘90’s warehouse workout and Mannequine, who brings the Tropical flavour to the package with a rolling, euphoric slice of beach party Disco. Another mind-blowingly good release from Continental, how long can they keep this up?

Australian Indie-Electro trio Rüfüs’ This Summer has been out for a while now in single form, being on e of the Anthems of this year. Enter London’s ElectroPop don Jerry Bouthier and his Continental Records imprint to bring the track, once again, to the forefront with a reMix package of This Summer and Selena.
With a track this epic, it would be hard to do any wrong, but this collection of reMixes exceeds expectations. Mr. Bouthier’s own JBAG head up the EP with an amazing DiscoPop reMix that is just everything you’d want from a fun summer tune. A bouncy bassline and thick retro chords makeup a huge, all encompassing sound that truly does the song justice and, more. Perfect drum fills and an insanely catchy hook are the icing on the cake. This track is going to get caned. Rüfüs themselves contribute a deep Techy take on This Summer, full of Techno intricacies and moody chords this is one for late night in Berlin, with the added bonus of a big Dreamwavey lead. Nu-Disco newcomerLancelot has really impressed us this year, and to this package he contributes another quite deep mix, this time with more of a synthetic Disco feel as he takes Selena and works it into almost a Disco Dub. The single also contains work from, with a droning Techno mix, Parachute Youth with a chaotic Dreamwave mix and slick ‘90’s House take on Selena from Frames.
Yesterday saw the release of Binary’s newest family member, Lancelot,’s début EP, ‘We Can Dance’. It may only be February, but one listen to this EP and you’ll have the shades and shorts on in no time, it’s summer Disco gold.
We’ve already covered the first track on the EP, ‘Spoken Word’, a slick Disco-House tune with some amazing melodies and flourishes that still make it a stand out track. The EP’s lead tune is the titular ‘We Can Dance’, is more retro synth Funk led Disco but with a nice vocal twist. The twist being that is has vocals. The vocal element almost turn this track into a Nu-Disco anthem, if such a thing is possible. It;s definitely a good choice to lead the EP with, this track could have people singing all summer. Remixes of ‘We Can Dance’ are supplied by, amongst others, Binary boys, Fabian and Goldroom, two of our favourite producers around. Goldroom’s mix is deep and slick. A visceral groove with a Tropical sheen and an infectious lead line. Fabian takes things to a more robotic Disco place, his mastery of multi-layered Electro and eclectic influences shining through. that’s not all that’s on the EP, there’s more originals and more reMixes, it’s definitely worth checking out.
Lancelot is the latest in an increasing number of artists to be taken under the wing of Binary Records. In the recent expansion beyond the core Binary crew Josh and Kyle have shown some A&R genius in sniffing out interesting and different electronic artists and once again have struck gold with Lancelot.
We’ve heard the odd reMix from Lancelot over the last few months but late February Binary delivers his début EP, ‘We Can Dance’. It;s a few weeks away but right now we can have a listen to the lead track ‘Spoken Word’. The first think you’ll notice about ‘Spoken Word’ is that it a peice of music, it is neither Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter not anything by Dan Brown. With that cleared up we can tell you what it is. ‘Spoken Word’ is a smooth as hell slice of summery Nu-Disco. Although that doesn’t sound like anything special these days, Lancelot’s tune here is pretty unique. What he has brought is a nice combination of a pretty synth heavy House backing, with some nice Cosmic touches, which builds a framework for a brilliant ‘70’s Disco tune. The EP comes with three originals and reMixes from Goldroom, Fabian, Frames and Moonchild (we heard the Goldroom mix on The Magician’s last Magic Tape). You’ll probably be wanting to buy that when it comes out then.
Australian outfit Faker have premiered the video for their current single ‘Dangerous’.
It’s classic Antepodiean Indie-Electro in the Midnight Juggernauts vein with a video shot in London and featuring a shadowy pair of pursuers.
The track has been reMixed by Lancelot, who recently reMixed Penguin Prison’s ‘Multi-Millionaire’ who turns the track into a gritty slice of DiscoPop track that growls it’s way through it’s four and a half minutes. it’s heavy bass tempered with some sweet synth chords.
Penguin Prison had dropped a whole package of awesome reMixes of his ‘Multi-Millionaire’ single for free on his website.
This bundle of Mixes not appearing on the forthcoming single includes work from Graphics, Prince Language, Random Elements, Robert Owens and this track from Lancelot who brings a nervous synth line and some deep Electro grooves to the track, it’s my personal favourite of the set.
