[Download] Ben Macklin’s ‘Physical’

 

ben-macklin_thumb

Cassette Club’s Ben Macklin just isn’t letting up this year! Becoming one of the scene’s mote prolific producers, Ben continues his journey into Tropical Disco with this new tune, Physical. Depending on whether you’re a glass half full, or glass half empty, type of person this will either carry you away from these cold winter months to a warmer vibe, or remind you just how must it isn’t summer anymore. Either way, get involved.

Macklin drives things home with a solid House backing, a pumping, tight groove that makes a rock solid base for layers of hazy, almost Chillwavey, synths and samples to dance around the track. Keeping the vibes in check is a hypnotic Island lead line that shines down on the track, bringing the sunshine. This is top-down crusin’ music, although maybe you should wait a few months to act on that. Unless you;re in Australia, in which case go for it.

Goldroom   Till Sunrise  feat. Mammals    YouTube

Here’s the video for Nautical Disco superstar Goldroom’s current offering ‘Till Sunrise. The track features Australian electronic producer Mammals and has been pretty much doing the business for the last couple of months.

The clip was directed by Dianna Agron and is one of those young-people-in-soft-focus-doing-some-stuff videos that are all the rage. Nice crane shots too!

[Audio] Ronika’s ‘Marathon’

 

ronika

We were a little light on the posts toward the end of last week ‘cos of illness. Chronic man-flu if you must know (yes, it’s a thing). But as we all know there’s nothing better as a pick me up than a new song from Nottingham’s finest; Ronika. Obviously named for the original version of Snickers, Marathon is the lead track of her forthcoming new EP which, frankly, we weren’t expecting so soon after Selectadisc. Then again, Ron’s a bit of a workaholic so it’s not that surprising.

Marathon is a little glossier than Ron’s previous offering. But glossy in a 70s sheen-y way, rather than a contemporary Pop way. It’s got that movie Disco vibe, recalling the height of the genre’s popularity, though injected with a little bit of an 80s Boogie undercurrent in the squelchy synths. A laid back three and a half minutes of smoothness, Marathon is the kind of tune that can inject a little warmth into these cold Autumn days. Bring on the EP (just in time for X-mas!)

Ronika’s Marathon is released 1st December via Record Shop.

[Audio] Worship’s ‘Paradise’

 

Worship

It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard anything from epic Swiss SynthWaver Worship; he seems to be on one release a year these days, and he’s keepings things tight in 2014 by waiting ‘til the end of the year to drop- a new release. But drop a new release he has. At the end of last week he unleashed his latest slice of Italo, Disco, Dreamwave goodness. This is Paradise.

Paradise is one of those Cosmic Disco journeys that really is a journey. Worship’s music always had an epic, cinematic quality to it and this is no different. Headed thick with lush synths and rousing chords, Paradise is part space-age floorfiller, part Sci-Fi soundtrack. Leading with a stuttering Italo bassline, the track weaves it’s audio tapestry our of sweeping pads, uplifting leads and emotional keys, paving the way for a funky little riff to intersect the track at it’s nexus. A welcome return for Worship right here.

[Download] Final DJs’ ‘All That Matters’

 

Final DJs

Final DJs as a solo act still makes my brain hurt something chronic. I absolutely hate writing it, he really should drop it down to ‘Final DJ’ at least, having to write “Final DJs is” is a crime. Well, at least the music is still coming, and still pretty awesome. Check out his new tune, All That Matters for some sunshine bliss on these increasingly cold evenings.

Final DJs delivers a buoyant House tune here with a touch of a SynthWave sheen over the top. Chirpy beats, think synth bass and a euphoric sample bounce around the track with a carefree glee; awaiting the moment those lush, warm synths slide into serve up their solo. Add in some sweet vintage chimes and you’ve got a nice slice of contemporary retro. It’s a free download too.

[Audio] Starcadian’s ‘Saturdaze’ EP

 

Starcadian

So, after whetting your appetite with one hell of a mashup late last week New York electro wizard Starcadian dropped his new EP just in time for the weekend. We honestly weren’t expecting another body of work this size for a while; (for us at least) his album Sunset Blood is still fresh in our ears and despite being a year old, still gets constant play (also, writing “despite being a year old” just made us sad. Oh internet, what have you done to the shelf life of music?). The Saturdaze EP ages as somewhat of a companion piece to Sunset Blood; but whereas the album soundtracked the best in straight to video Sci-Fi thrillers, Saturdaze takes Saturday morning TV and runs with it.

And it does hit the ground running, the EP’s opener, Ultralove, is one of Starcadian’s best to date. The intro along is immense strings, synths, sax and crazy toms work the music up into a frenzy before dropping and kicking back in with a synth heavy future Disco belter. Ultralove is a journey through everything Starcadian does best, hard hitting raw Disco, Quite vocoder moments and squealing solos. This one’s got it all. It;s a tough act to follow, but the rest of the EP tries it’s hardest. Dance Or Die is the real TV theme hero here, mixing a rockin’ riff with Chiptune hooks this is your optimistic, action-packed, Cartoon intro here. Money seems to be a spiritual successor to Pompey Pirate a little, a growling, enigmatic Electro track that reminds us that Starcadian can do Dark just as well as Uplifting. Alien Victory jostles for position as the EP’s stand out track, an epic duet between ominous, creeping, synthetic tones and skyrocketing euphoric leads. There’s a whole movie that plays out in your head just to this one track; from the dark times to the hopeful future, Alien Victory will carry you there. All that excitement is followed by Entoptica, the EP’s instrumental power ballad, a soaring solo set against a steady melancholy electric groove before the release plays out on a new, up-tempo, dancefloor friendly version of previous single, and space ballad, He^rt.Kicking the track up a few BMP and dropping a kickin’ beat under the track doesn’t hurt it one bit, and reinvents it as a floorfilling anthem. As you can imagine Saturdaze comes highly recommended; we really can’t stress that enough, you need to get involved.

[Download] Futurewife With Sister Girlfriend’s ‘Summer’s End’

 

Futurewife

Seattle’s resident groove master Futurewife and ElectroPop three piece Sister Girlfriend seem like the most nightmarish match made in heaven, yet the results are a pure dream. These guys have teamed fellow local resident Tiffany Wan to deliver this tricked out Funk jam, Summer’s End. So sit back, put your feet up and your headphones on, and sink into some of the smoothest sounds around.

Futurewife serves up some infectious rolling bass hooks and Old School Hip Hop beats for his slick vintage Disco to flow over. Thick synth stabs and retro sweeps form a neat package that allows Futurewife and Tiffany Wan to roll out a sweet duet over the top. It’s an interesting combination of influences, but this time too many cooks certainly don’t spoil anything. This melting pot definitely works.
