Dreamwave originator and purveyor of all things nautical Disco Goldroom has treated us to a brand new reMix. He’s been a bit quiet recently, since ‘Till Sunrise, due to all the constant gigging and whatnot so it’s nice to hear some fresh music. The object of his talents this time is Brummie Rebekah/Rebecca themed duo Ekkah’s single of last year, Last Chance To Dance. Soak it up.
Goldroom immediately drops you in the middle of some island bliss with rolling percussion and delicate arpeggios before launching into dreamy beach House vibes. Ekkah’s vocals have a certain soulful quality and skippy Pop groove that lends themselves perfectly to Goldroom’s piano lead feel-good soundtrack. Can’t stop vibing to this.

We’ve made no secret of the fact that Dutch musical master Shook is one of our favourite Disco producers around. The multi-instrumentalist adds a layer of musicality to his music that many of his contemporary producers can’t manage. Most recently he’s lent his talents to Brooklyn based Indie outfit Great Good Fine OK in reMixing their new single Too Much To Handle. This single is released ahead of their 2M2H EP to be released later this month.
Shook has a little fun with this reMix. For his take on Too Much To Handle he’s whipped up a bouncy, vintage affair. Quite stripped back and subtle, Shook decides not to got for the big, attention grabbing reMix tricks in favour of delivering a sweet, chilled, tune that borrows much from 80s Soul and captures some perfect Sunday afternoon listening vibes.
♫ Great Good Fine OK – Too Much To Handle (Shook reMix)
Great Good Fine OK’s 2M2H EP is released 16th March.

Last month leftfield DiscoPop queen Róisín Murphy announced her forthcoming new album, Hairless Toys, with a sneak peek at the first single from the record, Gone Fishing. In parallel to this, though, she’s teamed up with DJ Parrot (of Sweet Exorcist and The All Seeing I fame) for a one off release via Crosstown Rebels of this storming floorfiller, Jealousy. Due out next week, the tune was premièred by Annie Mac last week, check it out.
Whereas as the album allows Murphy to flex her musical muscles (she always injects her dance music with a certain avant garde quality) this single is right at home on Crosstown Rebels, being a pure club experience. Jealousy is a stripped back tune, distilled dancefloor ingredients, where Róisín’s vocals ride over eight minutes of a punchy House bass infused hypnotic groove. It’s not until the halfway point that the track really lets loose, adding an electric piano hook and a rising vocal arrangement to the mix. The whole affair has got a classic sound, due in part to Róisín’s vocals, which are so much a part of UK dance music history, and would slot neatly into almost any set.

Torontonian Disco experimentalist Hemingway always serves up something interesting with every tune he releases, which means we pay attention whenever a new track appears. This one right here comes from the Stratford Ct. 1yr Anniversary Compilation, which is apparently a compilation to mark the one year anniversary of another compilation. It’s worth checking out if just for Lost Tribe, Hemingway’s latest compelling offering.
Hemingway offers up some seriously intoxicating Disco sounds on this one. Intricately crafted, Lost Tribe takes distant elements and melds them into an amazingly funky whole, all held in place by a hi-hat heavy rhythm and a warbling bass. Haunting sound drop in and out of the mix and lilting, emotional melodies drift around the track, making it something wildly more cerebral than it’s contemporaries, but all the time keeping the dancefloor vibes strong.

Norwegian Cosmic Disco wizard Lindstrøm, this week, unleashed his new single. The man is an epic freak-out master, but also has released some amazingly catchy stuff when teamed up with some vocal talent. On this occasion he’s got together with Skin Town singer Grace Hall to deliver a nine-minute epic (not that nine-minute epics are a rarity for the Scandinavian Cosmic Disco crew) that melds the galactic with the emotional.
Home Tonight is classic Lindstrøm. The man’s first original (and solo) track in two-ish years burbles and sweeps through it’s extended length but never loses focus. Peppered with an 80s feel, Lindstrøm build the boogie with vintage synths and shuffling percussion before dropping the listener ears first into a solid-as-hell space-age Disco groove. Sparkling and uplifting, the synths dance over the tune with a playful decadence while Grace Hall’s retro Electro Soul vocals surge in and out of the mix. In it’s race for the finish, Home Tonight drops the full force of piano hooks and orchestral stabs to bring it home.

True to his word, Disco don MiGHty mOUse has released another of his personal crate weapons to you lucky people. The man is at the top of his game, the game of being a Disco DJ, so when he creates a tune specifically designed to rock his dancefloors you know it;s going to do the job right. No fluff, no padding, this one is a dancefloor aimed musical cruse missile. The kind of monster tune you’ll find him dropping on any of his forthcoming gigs.
Wunder is one of those track, when you’re on the dancefloor, that you just sink into. You let it take control and you just loose yourself in. That chord progression, played on rumbling bass synth, is like a wave of vibes that carries you away. The tune is seasoned with an hypnotic, almost Dubby, piano hook and an array of Sci-Fi sounds flowing over jaunty purcussion. MiGHty mOUse isn’t mucking around here; pure dancefloor exuberance.

We got to catch London based Krautrock/Synth/Coldwave/something outfit Public Service Broadcasting live at Bestival last year and they fast became one of the weekends highlights. While on record they aren’t quite out thing, live they are utterly fantastic. The duo have a new album, The Race For Space out soon and the records lead single, Gagarin, as been given a storming reMix by Disco don come Housemeister Psychemagik.
the original track is an almost Jazzy live performance, loaded with guitars and brass, but Psychemagik takes all those elements and gives them a machine makeover. The bassline, a loose if hypnotic affair on the original, becomes a hard hitting and compelling robots march on this mix aimed squarely at the dancefloor. Retaining PSB’s newsreel feel and the tune’s soul, Psychemagik flips it into an electronic, almost EBM at times, floorfiller.

Public Service Broadcasting’s The Race For Space is released 23rd February.
