[Audio] Moon & Walker reMixed by Ride The Universe

moon & walker

Moon & Walker are a new Australian duo (or are they?), so new in fact that they haven;t got a web presence we can link to, so you’ll just have to take our word for it that they exist. Well, our word for it, and this storming reMix of their début single from Dreamwave superheroes Ride The Universe.

Love A Little More get’s a blissful, Funk fuelled, Nu-Disco workout from Dreamwave’s A-Team. Like sunshine pouring out of your speakers, which, in the middle of January, is awesome. it’s got everything we’ve come to expect, nay demand, from RtU. No-one rocks a smooth groove quite like these guys. Complex Disco basslines and buzzing retro synths breezily wash over the most laid back of beats as Ride The universe mix a little of their trademark talkbox into the track. With a pinch of stardust sprinkled on their beach party RtU bring their eternal summertime into our lives once again. This is music for hot girls to dance in slow motion too.

Announcement: Ride The Universe release ‘A Little Better’ with electronic rumors

Ride The Universe (Feat. Jane Elizabeth Hanley) - A Little Better Cover

The massive announcements are coming thick and fast now! We are so proud to be able to  share this one with you.

As you’ll know, we’ve been big fans of Ride The Universe from day one. Do we really need to talk about their reMix of Chromeo’s Hot Mess again? For those of you living under a particularly no-fun rock, Ride The Universe are the world’s first Nu-Disco/Dreamwave supergroup, or should that be superheroes? Made up of legendary DJ team of Nicky Savage, Jeremy Giovinazzo and Sam Aftermath, who collectively produce under the name Leisure Council (formerly Fiero) and one of Germany’s finest exports and the Nu-Disco ‘producer’s producer’ digitalfoxglove. That’s an outfit with proper musicians, proper production talent, and proper party-starting DJs, how can anything that comes out of that not be mind-blowing?

So, their début single, to be released on electronic rumors is A Little Better. First featured on electronic rumors Volume 1, A Little Better is the pinnacle in summery disco and features the sweet vocals of Jane Elizabeth Hanley (Vulture Music’s Kids At Midnight). It has been completely remastered and packaged with reMixes from legendary Electro & Pop producer Frankmusik, rising stars of the Nu-Disco scene Pat Lok and Dublin Aunts, analog Disco guru Auxiliary Tha Masterfader and Disco-House master Melee. It’s a massive release (and one we can’t stop grinning about).

Quinten 909’s ‘Closer To Me’

Quinten 909

Out this week is the new monster from Dutch Nu-Disco producer Quinten 909. Bringing on-board American funkster Mayhem for a talkbox groove workout, Quinten drops Closer To Me on On The Fruit Records just in time for the warn evening of the end of the summer. Because these are pure evening jams. Time to get sexy.

You should definitely take the time (or the whole afternoon) to check out every version of Closer To Me, but for us the highlights are the Classic Mix, a soaring synth, warbling talkbox, Disco basslined juggernaut of laid back funk. Infectious and impossible not to move to, Closer To Me brings together all the elements of the groove into one giant groove machine. So what can be better than that? Three little words. Ride The Universe. The four Dreamwave warriors add a little Dub sound to their slick as all hell synthetic Disco, and with the talkbox vocals in tow it’s an unbeatable combination that just goes to prove why Ride the Universe are the top of their game.

Ride The Universe reMixes Jane Badler

Jane Badler

Are you sitting comfortably? No? Well maybe you should skip this track until you can find yourself somewhere decent to sit, or preferably lie, ‘cos this track is so smooth that you might just loose the use of your legs and melt into a pool of Funk. And for health and safety reasons we have to suggest you minimise injury when that happens. I’ve been wanting to write about this track for a couple of months now, purely so I can use the phrase ‘rodent chomper’, as you’ll see. Dreamwave superheroes and the funkiest men in the business Ride The Universe’s latest reMix assignment is for rodent chomper Jane Badler, who is apparently not only the leader of an alien invasion force, but also a pretty slick cabaret singer too.

The Ride the Universe crew’s reMix of Yesterday’s Tomorrows starts smooth, and gets smoother. Riding not just the universe, but also a laid back groove, the foursome drop some chilled electric piano, a rolling bassline and even a hint of sax drifting across the rooftops. Even the Disco beat seems to be saying “don’t worry about it, just relax”. Balder’s cabaret style is a little grating for my personal tastes, but that can in no way obscure the amazingness that it that is this tune, the best of current Nu-Disco. Here’s hoping for a Dub. The only problem with Ride The Universe is that their productions are to few and too far between, each new tune they drop leaves us eager for the next. Did I mention it was smooth?

♫ Jane Badler – Yesterday’s Tomorrows (Ride The Universe reMix)

Yesterday’s Tomorrows is taken from Jane Balder’s EP Mistaken Identity, out now. The reMix will be out soon on Ninthwave.

AXXE’s ‘Sweet Stuff’


Jet setting DiscoPop act AXXE’s ‘Sweet Stuff’ has been knocking around for a while now, as has some of the reMixes, so On The Fruit Records (in their firsts of two big releases this week) have made the smart decision to package them all up in one place, alongside some corking new versions. Won’t you join me for a peek inside?

The original version of the tracks is pure Dance-Pop excellence, with just the right balance between retro sounds and modern dancefloors. Doug’s slick beats and ear for hooks and Stina husky, powerful vocals work together perfectly for some big, but edge, ElectroPop fun. It’s hard to even start on the reMixes with out getting Ride The Universe’s version out the way, we’ve mentioned it before, suffice to say the combination of musicianship, studio skill skill and DJ’s ear amongst the four Riders makes up the perfect production team. If you were in the HR department of a Dreamwave/Nu-Disco corporation then these four skill sets would be the one your would be trying to fill. Dreamtrak is a man with his finger in a lot of ElectroPop pies right now, and his reMix here displays why, with an almost New Order-esque slice of retro SynthPop sprinkled with a hint of Disco. Neon Workout head straight for the dancefloor with their take on the track with a bit of Italo, a bit of EBM and a bit of Disco all finding their way into this rapid-fire mix.

Ride The Universe on the reMix for Thrill Kill

thrill kill

Right, stop what you’re doing. It’s time to pay attention, Ride The Universe have a new reMix.

Is it as blissfully smooth as you’d expect? Why, yes, yes it is. Thrill Kill’s forthcoming new single, ‘Dress In Stereo’ receives the unicorn magic this time and the result is a shimmering slice of bouncy Disco that is infections like a serious disease. there’s just something special happens when all four members of RTU get together, their talents combine like the limbs of a giant robot to make a whole that which literally slays most other music makers out there.

Ride The Universe reMixes AXXE

Here we have another incoming reMix of Canadian ElectroPopsters AXXE’s ‘Sweet Stuff’, this time the worldwide phenomenon that is Ride The Universe are going to show us what’s what.

I’ve been waiting a while to hear some RTU with sultry female vocals, it seems to me to be the perfect combination and the boys just go nuts with the opportunity. In what is probably the most retro of their productions so far, their reMix of ‘Sweet Stuff’ is washed thick with 70’s Disco and Funk. Layering a solid, body moving, groove with euphoria inducing Disco lead lines is a heady combination. The union of AXXE and RTU is music so sexual that if AXXE release a Disco tune in nine months time I think we can safely assume what happened.

This is the tune of the month, easily!

How many more awesome AXXE reMixes can we take?
