London’s DiscoPop powerhouse production duo JBAG’s storming new single Everybody (Come On) is out now. The track features an enchanting mantra of a vocal performance from Chibi of Belgian ElectroPop outfit Shindu as Jerry and Andrea lay down some seriously thick beats and funk fuelled vintage House. The bass alone is enough to shake you to the dancefloor.
Check out the brand new video, which we’re premièring right here, A simplistic affair proving you don’t need a budget or to be a great artist to make a video as it flashes in time to the JBAG’s monster tune and features a cast of superstars.
Parisian DiscoPop trio Jolie Chérie have release a free reMix package for their Où Tu Veux single. Released in January, the rousing SynthPop ballad features extra vocals from Valli and has now got a fresh set of versions from the likes of James Curd, Solar Systems, Quater Chic, Scuola Furano and this soaring slice of Island ElectroPop euphoria from London’s finest DiscoPop duo, JBAG. Jolie Chérie reMixed JBAG’s X-Ray Sex single of 2010, it’s well overdue that the favour is returned.
JBAG eschews and mood of the original in favour of a carefree dancefloor vibe. Despite being quite mid-tempo, JBAG keep the energy up and the mood hectic, inserting random riffs and sirens into the mix; giving the track an organised chaotic feel. At it’s core lies a laid back Tropical grove built around syncopated stabs and a clap-a-long beat that never relent over the tracks seven minute length. A departure indeed from the original, and a surefire summer jam.
The awesome Continental Records has just released the second round of reMixes of 1987 classic No Memory from Scarlet Fantastic. The first incarnation of this reMix onslaught contained work from the likes of Luke Million, Pherotone and Mighty K, and just two months later the second EP is unleashed this week. This time around label boss Jerry Bouthier’s own JBAG duo leads the charge with this deep, Topical ElectroPop rework.
A departure from JBAG’s usual straight up DiscoPop masterpieces, this reMix of No Memory takes in some broader influences. With a jump-up beat and a breezy Island groove, the tune is more Chilled than we are used to from this pair, but still retains a solid dancefloor feel. Airy licks permeate a buoyant track loaded with heavy synth bass and a healthy dose of Reverb. The original’s vocals are used sparingly and with a haunting quality. Awesome stuff you can download right now!
London’s premier ElectroPop duo JBAG are back in business, and this time they are dragging Polish SynthPoppers Kamp!’ along for the ride. Out today on Jerry Bouthier’s own Continental Records is Through Blue. The comes with a packed collection of reMixes that includes work from Holmes Price, Jay Lamar & Jesse Oliver and Venice Beach. Get ready for some deep and enveloping grooves.
Through Blue sees JBAG testing the waters of Deep House and folding it into their sassy DiscoPop sound. Weaving robotic and bassy synth sounds into a soulful and emotional sonic tapestry, JBAG offer up some seriously warm summer sounds. Kamp! singer Tomek Szpaderski’s low key vocal style add to the laid back vibe of the track, his subtle croon sharing time with the chiming leads. Holmes Price’s take on the tune injects a little vintage piano House into proceedings. A euphoric symphony of 90s House sounds, frenzied purcussion and filtered vocal snatches, Price’s reMix grabs the track and drags it straight to the dancefloor, and we’re happy to go along with it. The whole EP is definitely worth you checking out.

So, you know we love our Indonesian bros Mjolnir, and you know we love out London bros JBAG, so the combination of the two is an exciting prospect indeed. Out soon on, one half of JBAG, Jerry Bouthier’s Continental Records is Mjolnir’s new single, Just A Boy, and as a war up; here’s JBAG’s lush, summery, Dub mix of the track.
JBAG lay out the dancefloor side of the tune thick. An immense wall of Tropical sounds and deep Funk grooves. A tidal wave of sunshine beats and uplifting snyths that crashed over you. I defy anyone to not move, even a little bit to this one. Frankly, if you don’t find yourself shimmying to Just A Boy, you may want to consult with your Doctor about possible paralysis or the atrophy of your fun gland.

Thanks to Continental Records, the original version of the tune is right here as a free download.
Mogadisco is a popping, carefree slice of instrumental DiscoPop. With a solid House beat behind it and heaps of Tropical purcussion, Mogadisco conjures up a mood of late night good times, good friends and good weather. Of those times when your in the middle of a sweaty dancefloor and nothing else matters. Hint’s of retro stylings in it’s B-boy breakdown and grumbling synths give the track a little twist, but really, it;s all about that euphoric lead line. The picks of the reMixes has to go to Pharo Black Magic, who deliver a deep Disco rendition of the track with an infectious bass and an almighty breakdown and Eliot’s Tropical Euromix in all it’s early 90s glory. This is a collection that deserves a place in your crate.
