We’ve been talking about Australian singer Owl Eyes’ Nightmixes EP for a while now. Having already featured some sterling reMix work from Goldroom and Cassian in the past few months. The EP is out now and is packed with a whopping eight reMixes of tracks from her album, Nightswim. Check out the gloriously hedonistic version of Golden Lies from fellow Australian duo The Aston Shuffle.
It’s a big, euphoric, track that effortlessly flips between Disco tinged Indie-Electro and deep pounding House. Punctuated by breaks of Owl Eye’s sweet vocal, the track either deliver’s a sunkissed, LA vibe. Full of stabbing retro synths and shimmering keys. Or a thick bassed warehouse stomper, complete with pitched down vocals. The two alter-egos of the track seem to converge on the finale where the best of both worlds plays out the song.

The amazing Plastic Plates is on a roll. After a couple of months of silences Felix Bloxsom is following up on the première of his new single with another new tune a mere three days later. His new offering comes in the form of this reMix for Australian ElectroPop duo The Aston Shuffle and their forthcoming new single Can’t Stop Now.
The original version of the track is pretty full-on, commercial, big room Electro, which Plastic Plates turns into something a little deeper and groovier. Serving up a heaped plate of synthetic Disco, Felix brings together an Italo bassline, a House beat and popping arpeggios in a tasty Nu-Disco sauce culminating in a laid back, but effortlessly body moving tune that uses the vocals of the original in anthemic ways. The single also hold mixes from Special Features and Matisse & Sadko and one we are particularly interested in from the one and only Lenno.

Released this month was The Aston Shuffle’s new single ‘i Wanna’ See You’. I think I first noticed The Aston Shuffle after their reMix of PNAU’s ‘Baby’ way back when, they’ve got a pretty unique take on Electro.
‘I Wanna’ See You’ comes across like a party banger, but it is actually a really intricate track with really smooth vocoded vocals.
