Disco superstar Goldroom has unleashed his eagerly awaited reMix of Danish QuirkPop enigma MØ’s Don’t Wanna’ Dance. The track is taken from her recently released début album, No Mythologies To Follow, which dropped in early March to critical acclaim. The Dreamwave originator washed the track is some more if his blissful fantasy Tropical vibes.
The vocals on this one are the perfect amount of soulful hazy to pair up with Josh’s beats. A laid back, beach party, House tune, this reMix serves up the sunkissed sounds by the truckload. Punchy synth bass powers the track, doing all the heavy lifting, leaving tons of room of MØ’s dreamy vocal and waves of warm keys to carry you away.
How would you go about taking a beloved late-80s IndiePop classic and serving it up to the desert island Disco masses? Well, just ask London based French ElectroPop duo The Penelopes; ‘cos they’ve turned in this equatorial Pop masterpiece reMix of The Cure’s Just Like Heaven.
Too cheery to ever really have been Goth, The Cure sound the most upbeat they’ve ever been as The Penelopes wash the track in the most Tropical of vibes. Steely purcussion, pulsing synth basses and a hand-clapping Disco beat all work surprisingly well with Robert Smith’s vocal. The Penelopes produce what might be their densest track to date, loading the four and a half minutes with layers of pads and melodies, all coming together for an uplifting and epic experience.
Indonesian outfit Mjolnir’s new single Just A Boy was released this week on Jerry Bouthier’s Continental Records. We already posted the JBAG dub of the track. Now it’s time to check out what Canadian Housemeister Pat Lok has in store for the tune. It the mix we were most looking forward to hearing, Pat’s been on a roll recently, and he’s kept it going right here.
Taking the track deeper and groover than the JBAG’s version. Lok drops a warm summertime sound comprising a solid beat, and fidgety but utterly infectious subby bassline and layers of Tropical keys. The end result is somehow more laid back, yet more dancefloor destroying that the excellent original. That’s the magic of Pat Lok
Brooklyn’s AIMES seems determined to bring a little warmth and summery vibe to these cold winter months with his last few releases. The latest in his series of free singles is Time For Us, and like the others, shows off AIMES’ ability to perfectly blend influences from number of styles that are hot right now, and make them all sound personally unique.
“Vibe Huse” as AIMES calls it, presents us with a heady cocktail of Deep House and Tropical Disco, with just the tiniest hint of Chicago in the mix. A thundering beat provides the backbone for a dazzling array of swing fuelled synths. Blissful arpeggios chug along in the background while the tracks focus is taken by a demon bassline and some sweet island keys. Just sink into this one.
With Tropical vibes merging with the UK Deep House sound these days, it looks like we’re set for a summer of blissful, dreamy tunes. New York’s Disco don Chris Malinchak kicks things off with his new tune, Forever, which he’s dropping as a freebie ahead of the release of his next proper single. Malinchak surprised everyone last year with two UK chart topping singles, So Good To Me peaking at number two and it looks like he’s going to be continuing that trend into 2014.
Forever leans on subby basses to get a hypnotic club vibe going. Laying down an easy going House groove, Malinchak peppers the track with Tropical purcussion and infuses a drifting, soulful, vocal sample into a carefree beach party tune. Listen up peeps, this is the sound of the summer right here.
Bring the summertime to your winter months with the new single from Canadian Disco Chillwaver Box Of Wolves. Bringing you the sequel to his critically acclaimed début single, Boy, Box Of Wolves once again lets the voice of Christa Vi glide over his smooth keys and warm beach-bound beats as he delivers Let’s Start Again.
Stepping up for reMix duties on this carefree release are UK Producer Meloder, who’s intricate Deep House treatment is both nostalgic and forward thinking, Brooklyn’s AIMES, who delivers one of the biggest Tropical Disco tunes of the year and DeltaFoxx, who has the big ElectroPop arena covered.
With something for every dancefloor, the Let’s Start Again single is on target to be packing underground dancefloors this summer with the likes of Jerry Bouthier (JBAG), Ben Macklin (Cassette Club), P A U L I E, Rüfüs, Ali Jaimeson, Polar Sun and Jowie Schulner showing early support.
Here is part two of MiGHty mOUse’s new double A-side single. Shaker Faker got it’s groove on last week so now it’s Space Face’s turn in the spotlight. As with the previous track MiGHty mOUse and his label, Nightfilm, have been kind enough to give the track away. All in celebration of his forthcoming Australian tour; dates here.
Space Face keeps the Cosmic Disco vibes going with an infectious Piano House injection. The piano hook gets a real hypnotic flavour cooking over a solid Disco beat, it’s a slow builder but when the track kicks in it’s got all the galactic flair of an entrancing floorfilling monster. No wonder the likes of Tensnake are already giving it their support. Proper Disco euphoria.

The mighty MiGHty mOUse is back with his first new release of 2014. It;s a double A-side single featuring the tracks Shaker Faker and Space Face and it’s already getting hammer by some of the biggest names in the biz. Tensnake, Russ Chimes and Alex Metric have all been giving the tracks spins. The mOUse is also about to embark on a tour Down Under, check the dates here, and check out Shaker Faker below.
Shaker Faker is pure MiGHty Mouse gold. A little bit Cosmic, a little bt Tropical, a lot good-times.With a skippy shuffle to his Disco beats, the mOUse conjures up a tune to soundtrack a beach party off the shores of Orion. Rolling piano House riffs dance playfully with percussive hooks and swooshing synths that all combine to form a groove that just won’t quit. Get involved.
Neon Hearts is a lush, urban, slice of SynthPoppy Nu-Disco. Musically it’s a slightly Tropical four minutes of infectious synthesizer Disco. Peppered with Poppy riffs, the bass bounces, the leads get euphoric and the purcussion keeps things funky. The infectious dancefloor groove is all leading toward a sweeping solo. Foreign Boy’s vocal contribution is what gives it it;s SynthPop edge as he croons his was through the track in a neo-Pet Shop Boys style. Jules Schimmer adds a little 80s flair to the tune with a chugging bassline and Top Of The Pops beats before launching into a hands-in-the-air piano House riff, while Aux takes a future Italo approach to Neon Hearts, injecting burbling synths and his own analog Disco style. The whole release is an impressive début for the label.
