Damn Yasumo, seems like you kids are always out of the box, keeping fresh music and sounds on the go at all times.
If you know the original then you might find this cover of Congorock’s Babylon a bit unbelievable. Completely flipping its style, and putting it smack dab in the middle of the funk realm. Guitar plucks, a nice fat walking bassline and the synths are a lovely touch. Mr Lexx’s vocal fit on this fantastically, top drawer b’ys, top drawer.
That album single hand-idly got me into electronic music. And it still gets weekly spins at home on my tech twelve. But since then, we’ve heard the party wreckin’ Bangers and Cash, and then the 80′s disco/coke scene king Mobroder. Now there’s new hotness on the horizon, an LP by the name of Everything is Boring and Everyone is a F***ing Liar set to drop early this fall.
Featuring various talents like Pharrell, Squeak E. Clean, Chris Rockswell, Santigold and Big Freedia, more than enough to get excited for the release.
As a preview of the long play check below for the teaser of Energy and it’s remixes, which was produced by Boys Noize and samples a great classic, Vitamin C by German group Can which was released back in 1972.
Coming from a bboyin background, I’ve heard Vitamin C sampled many times but still I could listen to the original and it’s variations all day. Spank Rock takes it and puts a rock tinge on it, then pumps it up with his rap lyrics. Killin’ it.
The Elegance EP, a delicious blend of disco house, french house and chill disco. A free release from Chilean FnK FancY, this extended play will give you what you need to get those feet stompin’.
It includes three original tracks, the first of which is the title track. A really cool and upbeat french house dance jam with a disco feel.
Second is Trimurti, a wonderfully smooth and chill disco joint. Really great vibe on this one, and it even has a cameo performance from the anarchist V.
Lastly, and definitely not least is Jamais Plus. This is an absolute banger. Ain’t no way that you won’t be shuffling your bare feet on this one, and I say bare feet because the sound on those horns is big enough to blow the socks right off ‘em. Only thing is, the download limit has been reached on this one, so give him a follow and a like and maybe he’ll hook you up!
I imagine this track would be perfect on a dawn beach.
French Pleasurelove recently uploaded this remix of Midnight Love by fellow countrymen Starlesoufs. A softer approach to the original, the mood is slight and dreamy with some really beautiful synth sounds to keep it in the clouds. Excellent take on the great original.
A beautiful voice and a beautiful lady, meet Danish dancer and singer Fallulah (if you haven’t already). Still relatively unknown outside of her homeland, earlier this year the platinum selling artist released her newest single Out of It as she showcased her indie rock talent and new Balkan vibe. Now, Shook has laid his hands on her 2009 single I Lay My Head, which has an August 29 release date in the UK, and has spread pure musical fire. In true fashion, the talented Dutch DJ and producer has created a funkified remix with skillful key riffs and synth stabs that make you feel like all is right in the world. Up for grabs, make sure you hit download, and watch for the signature growl at the 1:55 mark.
Check out the original video for I Lay My Head below, and also get the free download of Star Athlete’s remix by hitting like on Fallulah’s Facebook page. The remix gives off an old school Portishead sound with tamed dub step and dark vibes.
Look out for Fallulah’s debut album The Black Cat Neighbourhood in early 2012.
