London’s Nude Disco is back with another of his storming reMixes. This one’s truly on point with Vern’s take on Sébastien Tellier’s classic Kilometre. This is one track you all will know, taken from the Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo produced album Sexuality it was a 2008/09 staple. Check out Nude Disco bringing up to 2015 speed and ready for a new dancefloor.
Nude Disc keeps things steady with this rock solid reMix. Kicking off with a bubbling arpeggio and a cracking electro snare, Vern soon introduces the original’s rich synths and a squelchy lead into the mix as the tune dips and bobs through the track. After a warm breakdown, Nude Disco brings it back hard with an irresistible and energetic synthetic finale.

Norwegian Cosmic Disco wizard Lindstrøm, this week, unleashed his new single. The man is an epic freak-out master, but also has released some amazingly catchy stuff when teamed up with some vocal talent. On this occasion he’s got together with Skin Town singer Grace Hall to deliver a nine-minute epic (not that nine-minute epics are a rarity for the Scandinavian Cosmic Disco crew) that melds the galactic with the emotional.
Home Tonight is classic Lindstrøm. The man’s first original (and solo) track in two-ish years burbles and sweeps through it’s extended length but never loses focus. Peppered with an 80s feel, Lindstrøm build the boogie with vintage synths and shuffling percussion before dropping the listener ears first into a solid-as-hell space-age Disco groove. Sparkling and uplifting, the synths dance over the tune with a playful decadence while Grace Hall’s retro Electro Soul vocals surge in and out of the mix. In it’s race for the finish, Home Tonight drops the full force of piano hooks and orchestral stabs to bring it home.

Lindstrøm’s Home Tonight is released 6th April.

This week Jerry Bouthier’s awesome label, Continental, released the new double A-side single from fresh French ElectroPop outfit Bleu Toucan. The duo is made up of Léo Becerra (The Victorias) and Emmanuel Bonzé (Made In Taiwan) and have already released one slab of DiscoPop via Profil de Face Records, now this second release kicks things up a notch. The single comes equipped with the relevant quota of reMixes, including this dreamy gem, of the track Imagine, from our favourite Parisians, Reflex.
Reflex serve up something a little different to their normal output with this one. Less Tropical, more deep and groovy House. The French duo show off their dreamy side with a hazy production of warm tones and atmospheric pads over a bed of shuffling House beats and pumping and subby bassline. It’s awesome to see this other side to Reflex as the twosome flex their musical muscles. You should check out the whole single, it’s top stuff.

Jake and Rex are back in the game and going home. Their new single sees Rex The Dog returning to their original home, German Techno label Kompakt. Easily one of the finest producers out there, Jake Williams and his four legged friend combines his love of 80s SynthPop with analog Disco grooves and twisted DIY Techno to create a sound unlike any other. This uniqueness will only be enhanced by Jake spending the last couple of years learning how to build synths. Sicko was composed on this home-made equipment, check it out.
Sicko is a spacious tune, but the stripped down elements it works with are used to their fullest to deliver a rich and full sound. Innovative arpeggiated rhythmic modulated voice sampling provides a unique and compelling core for the track; which then accessories with vintage Electro beats and Techno effects. This is the space that Rex works best in, taking eclectic instrumentation and turning into something effortlessly funky. Over it’s six minute length Sicko just keeps delivering the surprises, so dive on in. Fire up the strobes lights and raise the dog with laser eyes, Rex is back to wreck shop.

German Nu-Disco beard master Justin Faust released one of our favorite records of last year. His album, Spellbound, was an unbeatable summer soundtrack. Prior to the full length release Faust dropped an EP via New York label Nurvous in 2013 (and it’s companion reMix EP); Disco Cuts. Now the man returns to Nurvous for the follow up; the sequentially titled Disco Cuts II. Here’s the EP’s lead track, Casino Royale.
Casino Royale takes a slightly different tack from the more Synth Disco driven cuts on his album. This, along with it;s release-mates, are sample driven beach floorfillers (if beaches had floors that is, which they don’t, but sandfillers sounds painful). This is a pure holiday jam that injects an evocative 60s vibe into Faust’s Disco groove. Conjuring the same sort of vibes as it’s title suggests, this one is all mini-skirts and Monte Carlo.

New Mexican poolside Disco juggernaut Solheiro is one half of the Le Touch boys who has struck out on his production lonesome to deliver some truly chilled and groove sounds. Ricardo Bussey Solheiro has been dropping some fantastic reMixes in the past twelve months; but you know our rule for being featured, originals first, reMixes later. So here he is with his début single. This is Last Minute Winner.
Blissful, summertime Disco sounds is what you’ll find here; although Solheiro manages not to sound exactly like everyone else as he carves out an emotional, intricate corner of the genre for himself. Layers of meticulous synths, Dubby effects and hazy vocals add to the bouncy, yet laid back, groove to serve up a top track that we are definitely saving to the warmer months.

True to his word, Disco don MiGHty mOUse has released another of his personal crate weapons to you lucky people. The man is at the top of his game, the game of being a Disco DJ, so when he creates a tune specifically designed to rock his dancefloors you know it;s going to do the job right. No fluff, no padding, this one is a dancefloor aimed musical cruse missile. The kind of monster tune you’ll find him dropping on any of his forthcoming gigs.
Wunder is one of those track, when you’re on the dancefloor, that you just sink into. You let it take control and you just loose yourself in. That chord progression, played on rumbling bass synth, is like a wave of vibes that carries you away. The tune is seasoned with an hypnotic, almost Dubby, piano hook and an array of Sci-Fi sounds flowing over jaunty purcussion. MiGHty mOUse isn’t mucking around here; pure dancefloor exuberance.
