You can always rely on Torontonian producer Cyclist to deliver something a little more left-fied within the Nu-Disco arena. A talented Funk musician as well as a skilful Disco producer, Cyclist throws all his traits into the mix here as he takes on the mighty Beastie Boys’ Root Down.
That bassline is just impossible to ignore, Cyclist’s reMix kicks of with some grinding synths, before launching into the funkiest four minutes you’ll have hear din a while. Doing The Beasties proud, Cyclist works his strongest 70s Disco and Funk together the deliver a powerhouse tune. Every attention to detail is paid as the track injects flourishes in all the right places, rocking with the tune at every tune. This one kept us going this past weekend.

So, unless you;’ve been living under a rock this week you’ll be aware that the almighty Beastie Boys are returning with a new single and brand new album. Produced by Beastie Boys and Cassius’ Philippe Zdar, the album was announced with a hilarious video which you can catch here.
I’m absolutely lovin’ this reMix of the lead single, ‘Make Some Noise’ by Passion Pit. Who give the track a Dreamwave going over! Dreamwave Hip-Hop? DreamHop? Whole new genre anyone? (LexiconDon, are you listening?). Passion Pit give the track that smooth LA vibe and cover it in lush synths.
