These are the songs I skipped yesterday to post the freshest. Now it's time you listen to them. Everyone's listening to them, if you're wondering why, here it goes:
First off is a brand new Black Space remix of Tegan And Sara's I Was A Fool. In true Black Space fashion the flutes, claps, congas and tropical pianos are present. And if that wasn't good enough there are additional vocals he put in there as a treat.
This new single by Basement Jaxx is just great. This is such a departure from their older stuff like Saga (which they featured Santigold in) back in 2009. Yet we love this vibe and the genre-bending nature of the production. Above all, that.
Here's a kickass throwback to my times as a kid. F82 take on EMF's one-hit-wonder classic Unbelievable. A great way to remix a 90's classic into Nu Disco waters.
I know it's Icona Pop or whatever but the horns. That's all I can hear and all my attention is banging with those. What. A. Banger. Solidisco keep outdoing themselves with these solid experiments in music. And after the bridge, there's a warm water manantial with a waterfall that's being shot in 30 frames per second until the upbeat arrives again.
Deep House grooviness from Flo Gruber on First Aid Kit's Winter Is All Over You. Sped up vocals with a low bass line and a guitar that tells a story of european summers.
I just love Colour Vision's take on La Roux's single Tropical Chancer. It's like they were meant to come together from birth. If I were you I wouldn't dare leave this remix out of your Summer of 2014 Playlist.
Eric Prydz is one of my favorite all-time producers. His consistency and unique sound are evident on his hugely successful career. I crossed off my bucket list watching him live 2 years ago at ID Festival in Miami. On Liberate is as good a commercial hit of EDM as they come. But what Lane 8 did was take it to another level of House -- Deep House. The chords are just beautiful. No wonder it's owning the charts.
This remix showcases Lane 8's capability of producing diverse records throughout different genres while still maintaining quality.
