French SynthWaver Awkoder turns his talents to sunrise House with his latest tune, Need U. We first heard his foray into this world on his reMix of Goldroom’s Embrace and he seems to have a knack for the sound. Check out his continuing journey into House on Need U, the man will be opening up the tune for free download when it hits 100 Likes on SoundCloud.
Easing you in with some warm keys, Need U soon sets up a filtered groove that flows into a euphoric and uplifting House tune. Balearic to it’s core, Need U’s playground is full of Island percussion and jazzy, 90s, melodies and a hint of a Tropical vibe. It’s a combination that demands to be spun in the sunshine; a surefire summer staple.
Norwegian producer Lindstrøm’s current single, the Grace Hall featuring Home Tonight, was release back in February and we loved it. Now, a couple of months later, there’s a brand new video for the track.
The video was directed by Petter Tangmyr the clip features Hall getting up to shenanigans in Los Angeles.

Lamet is one of the most interesting producers coming out of Russia right now; and that’s saying something as there is a ton of Russian talent emerging in the past few years. Grabbing our attention with his Italo and Disco, Lamet has been on our radar since 2012, particularly with the Moscow based producer’s True Stories EP a couple of years ago. His latest one is a smooth neo-Deep House tune called Vibes. Check it out.
Vibes is a spaced out tune that blurs the line between Deep House, Tech House, Nu-Disco and Progressive House. Riding on a woody robotic bassline, bringing the Deep groove, the track shows off an array of Techy riffs, Disco licks and a warm and inviting piano hook. It’s nice and nostalgic while still sounding fresh and it’s loaded with a few interesting little bridges. Top stuff.
Ready for another ten minute Cosmic Disco freak out from the wonderful Mr. Todd Terje? Ever the tasteful lot, the crew over at Ninja Tune have called on the Norwegian groovemeister to reMix Oban, the new 12” from freeform eight piece Jaga Jazzist. Actually, they all hail from Oslo, so are probably homies and hang out and brap all the time. Todd really indulges himself on this cut, so settle in and enjoy.
Stripping most out of the Jazz out of the equation, Todd rides the breakbeat with waves of space age synths; making the reMix a Norwegian Disco epic with an old school Hip Hop feel. An undulating symphony of burbles and swooshes that jokey for attention over a hypnotic walking bassline. Punctuated by rousing string section, this is everything you look for in a Terje track. Tundra Disco at it’s finest.

Let’s Go Slow is the new single from French Nu-Disco legends Aeroplane and the voice of Stardust’s 1988 French Touch blueprint Music Sound Better With You, Benjamin Diamond. Despite a constant stream of top notch reMixes, new original tunes from Vito De Luca are few and far between these days so the news of a string of singles to be released this year is good news indeed. This one, released later this month, kicks off the party. Check it out.
So, Let’s Go Slow is one of the most playful tunes Vito has produce to date, one of the Poppiest too. Loaded with the trappings of his career in French Disco, the track also makes nods toward American dance Pop and late 80 chart hits with bubbly synth and big stabbing keys over a jubilant rhythm section. Diamond delivers a catchy refrain to give the track a theme, but the stars hear are Vito’s razor sharp riffs. Also, it’s sounds kinda’ like Lightwaves reMix of She’s The Queen’s Talk To Me, which is cool. Just sayin’.
♫ Aeroplane (Feat. Benjamin Diamond) – Let’s Get Slow
Aeroplane’s Let’s Get Slow is released 20th April.
Well, he’s been teasing it all week and now it’s here. The captain of the Chilled disco ship, Mr. Goldroom has unleashed his cover version of Indie outfit Fleet Foxes’ 2009 single, Mykonos. It’s Josh’s favourite tune from Fleet Foxes so not only does he perform a rare cover, but has also chose to sing on the track himself, something we’ve not heard much from since the his NightWaves days. Check it out below, it’s an absolutely free download, ‘cos Goldroom loves you.
Goldroom meshes some sweet nautical Disco vibes with a cheeky Indie vibe on this one. Driven by a pumping bassline, Josh’s cover of Mykonos threads lush pads, synthetic snares and big synth sweeps trough a tapestry of wicked little licks and a dreamy paradise atmosphere. His vocals do the track justice, and you can tell he’s having fun with the track. Top-down sunshine feels from this one.
Tensnake’s vinyl leaning True Romance is one of our favourite labels right now. We’re avid collectors of their 12”s, each one an analog Disco Boogie gem. One such gem was the laid back retro Disco sounds of New York trio Tim Wagner, Nick Chacona and Amy Douglas, A.K.A. Sunrise Highway,’s self-titled début EP, fist seen in May last year. Now calling themselves Sunrise HWY (presumably for legal reasons) they are revisiting the slick release with an accompanying reMix package that sees Tiger & Woods and Tuff City Kids take on some of the EP’s sweetest tunes.
We weren’t able to pick our favourite of the reMixes, so here’s three for you to wrap your listening gear around. the formidable Larry Tiger & David Woods work their analog Disco magic on Some Kinda’ Fool, sounding not unlike a track from Tensnake’s own Glow, the track liberally spreads a pumping synth bassline over cowbell led Disco beats and heavily filtered snatches of the original’s groove. Germany’s Tuff City Kids choose to tackle two of the EP’s tunes; their version of Never Enough is an 808 heavy slice of synthetic House that pairs robotic Electro sounds with spine tingling piano House that works perfectly with Amy’s big diva vocals. Compass Point emerges from Tuff City Kids grasp with a Euro Disco feel, loaded with warm machine beats and spacey keys to compliment the track wicked Disco lick. The whole release is a joyous excursion into synthesizer Disco, B-Boy beats, summertime vibes and pure Boogie brilliance. We can’t wait to get our hands on the black plastic.
