Australian Disco scene lynchpin Cassian’s Running (featuring vocals from Cleopold) was released late last year with it;s uplifting HousePop brilliance. The tune has now got itself a slick-as-hell video. Watch below.
Directed by Lukasz Pytlik, the clip sees a retro futuristic Astronaut land on a strange planet who’s atmosphere conjures a mix between memory and hallucination. It look’s amazing!
Pat Lok just doesn’t stop working, does he? He’s already dropped his latest tune this week and here comes his next reMix. This time the Canadian groover takes on Australian Indie-Electro outfit Gold Fields ‘ single of last year, Hold Me. This one is the perfect tide-over until the weekend. Turn it up!
Lok mixes up a little Deep House and a little classic early 90s House sheen on this one. Starting off smooth and silky, Lok soon brigs the big retro vibes and hammers home the dance energy with a big piano hook. There’s a woozy bassline underpinning an ecclectic take on House synths, Pat injects the track with his own personality here, while the original’s vocals swirl in a reverb-y haze around the track. Summertime grooves.
Dutch Disco Duo Keljet are at it again, this time with a monster reMix of fellow countryman Oliver Heldens. Heldens’ new single is Last All Night (Koala), featuring vocals from KStewart, gets a bouncy treatment from the Keljet crew in a real meeting of Dutch minds. This one’s got both the Disco and the big room vibes. Check it out.
A departure from the lush Nu-Disco sound we are used to from Keljet, this reMix of Last All Night (Koala) veers into huge, progressive, territory. Layered with rich synths and a big drop and build, it’s squarely aimed at the more commercial end of the dancefloor, but Keljet keep things funky with an elastic bassline and their own European funk. KStewart’s expansive vocals are the icing on the cake.

It’s been a while we’ve been waiting for the next track from the coalition of Matts Du Tonc. International jet-setters MiGHty mOUse and Matt Van Schie have chosen to kick off this year with a track that they’ve been kicking around for a while, honing it to perfection. Every Song is the first track from the Indie-Disco duo to be picked up by Eskimo Recordings; we can see that partnership between the acclaimed label and these guys being a long and fruitful one.
Breezy Island vibes kick off Every Song; which is possibly the most 80s track from Du Tonc to date. A Disco New Wave oddessy with a swirling mixture of rolling bass and gently stabbing synths liberally peppered with Island guitar that gives off a Tropical early-80s Blondie vibe. This all makes of a blissful soundtrack for Matt (the Van She one) to deliver a summery croon that exudes an effortless cool. January feels like July with Every Song dripping out of the speakers.
So, we weren’t particularly enamoured with Italo Disco legend Giorgio Moroder’s ‘comeback’ single, 74 Is The New 24, it seemed to us to be a bit pedestrian. Modern dance music made by someone who had just discovered it, all over compressed kicks and stuff. That said, we were still eager to hear his new album, hoping some of it channels the shiny analog Disco we love Moroder for, and particularly the collaborations with Charli XCX and Kylie Minogue. Well look what happened over the weekend, the Kylie track leaked, and it’s amazing.
Right Here, Right Now is shimmering synthetic DiscoPop created by the original innovator. It seems some of Moroder’s time with Daft Punk rubbed off on him as the track occasionally shows hints of Random Access Memories, but with more of an electronic Pop sheen. This is big vintage Disco with contemporary Pop production, utterly infectious. Kylie sounds as sweet as ever as the track strikes exactly the balance of new and old we were anticipating from the album. Right Here, Right Now makes up for Moroder’s last couple of single attempts a hundred times and with a video rumoured to have been shot it looks likely this will be a single.

Here we go with the latest release from the non-stop juggernaut that is Brixton’s Nude Disco label. This one comes from Italian House producer Mister Salo who was snapped up by the London crew just two days after sending them his demo. Hailing from Torino, Mister Salo A.K.A. Salonia Gianluca has had a sting of low-key releases over the past couple of years; maybe this new one, Disco Mamba, will be his breakthrough.
Disco Mamba is an extremely fun concoction; a melting pot of Latin flavours and vintage Disco stylings and a classic early 90s House groove. Add in some Italo keys and you’ve got yourself a no-nonsense crowd pleaser. OK, so it’s not going to be winning any awards for intelligence or innovation anytime soon, but it’s guaranteed to keep the floor moving.
It’s the season of giving; a fact that hasn’t escaped one of our favourite producers of Disco and House, Sweedish groovemeister Sweedish artists, ODahl. The man is giving away his latest tune that caps off a year where we’ve seen a little more of ODahl after a quiet stretch. Tunes like Your Love, released earlier this year on Pole Position, have been a bit of a constant in our headphones around these parts. Tuck in to his latest jam, 37 Celsius.
ODahl serves up a warm and involving deep sound on 37 Celsius. Blending several House disciplines into one comfortable whole, the Swede brings a little Deep, a little Bass, a little Chicago and a little Disco into seven minutes of smooth-as-silk dancefloor gold. Vocal snatches pepper the track, building the atmosphere, whole ODahl’s solid beats keep the groove. Hold tight for the four minute mark where things get a tad warehouse.
It’s been a while since we posted a new track from Finnish wunderkind Lenno; so right now we’re going to post a new track from Finnish wunderkind Lenno. Simple. this one is the B-side to his forthcoming new single Wake Up. In contrast to the high octane big room sounds of the A-side, No More, featuring vocals by Olivera, is a summery, laid back, Dreamwave tune the like of which we haven’t heard for a while. Poolside Disco vibes to follow.
Taking us back a couple of years to a time when the Binary crew ruled the beaches, Fear Of Tigers was serving up new sounds every week and Oliver hadn’t signed to Fool’s Gold and lost their way. No More is a blissful symphony of retro synth and sweet vocals. Gentle picked guitar flutters int eh background and Lenno delivers warm rushes of synths and subtly morphing keys that flow together with Olivera’s hazy voice. Just in-case you get too relaxed, the man brushes this over a distinctly solid dancefloor beat. Lovely stuff!
