Midnight Pool Party – Signals (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

While the Western hemisphere begins to prepare for winter, Australian disco ambassadors, Midnight Pool Party, are gearing up for the incoming summer weather down in their home country. The Aussie duo are coming off their highly-praised Dalliance EP that came together six months ago, and now they come back with their first single since called “Signals.”

Instilling a mellow yet upbeat atmosphere from the opening chord progression, Midnight Pool Party incorporate sultry R&B elements into their usual groove-saturated sound to give fans a new spin on their usual offerings. Regardless if listeners are saying goodbye or hello to summer, “Signals” is a surefire mood booster.

WATCH: Louis Futon & GRiZ flip Tyler, The Creator’s ‘See You Again’

This post was originally published on this site

Earlier this week, Louis Futon and GRiZ released an impressively fun and funky flip of Tyler, The Creator’s “See You Again.” The video, a part of Louis Futon’s “Beat Challenge” series, follows a step-by-step guide to the production process, featuring the two jamming atop an dusky rooftop, ripping on guitars at an in-home studio, and chopping up the original track with a touch of drums, sax, and bass.

Today, the two artists followed up on their fun clip with an official track release for the masses. The final product does a great job of balancing Louis Futon’s talents on the piano keys and GRiZ’s bouncy sax solos, while showcasing their all-around incredible artistic chemistry.

Dr. Shiver releases “Something” on Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings

This post was originally published on this site

Bruno Carlo Oggioni, better known as Dr. Shiver, is the newest member of Protocol Recordings with his latest release of “Something,” featuring Kazi.

The Italian producer made his debut in the dance music scene with a remix of Candi Stanton’s 1986 track “You Got The Love.” Prior to kicking off his DJ career, he dabbled in the classical spectrum as a musician, specializing in piano and hammond and working with some of the biggest names in the industry such as Pharrell, BB King, and Little Louie Vega. Now, he’s got the attention of Nicky Romero, one of the biggest names in the game, as his latest track was released off the Dutch DJ’s imprint.

The track definitely gives off some old-school house vibes, with a bassline that consists of piano melodies and electronic key chords under Kazi’s catchy vocals that sound straight out of a blues club. Those melodies and vocals build up into an upbeat, rhythmic drop accompanied by funky guitar riffs.

Dr. Shiver is set to play at ADE in October at the Protocol showcase, so expect to see more out of the up-and-coming producer.

Billboard – Memories (Robotaki Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Though Robotaki is in the middle of his “I Want You” tour with Manila Killa, he somehow still has time to drop new, groundbreaking material. The tour itself has already seen major success and is just getting started, as the two young producers are set to perform all across the U.S. and Canada up until mid-November.

Robotaki has remixed Montreal native Billboard in his latest piece of work, putting a more positive, hard-hitting spin on one of the fellow Canadian’s most popular tracks off of his Memories EP. Keeping the original vocals in the same key signature, Robotaki adds in some groovy lead synths and chord progressions that brighten the track even further. The fact that Robotaki is able to continuously construct brilliant music while on his first major tour illustrates how much talent he truly possesses.

Disco Fries go back to their roots with new Rita Ora remix

This post was originally published on this site

New York City-based duo Disco Fries has been on a roll this summer, releasing new singles almost every month and collaborating with brilliant vocalists/producers such as Great Good Fine OK and Jared Lee. Their production style has definitely changed over the years, as Nick and Danny have taken their sound in a new direction with a more upbeat electronic, pop-y vibe.

However, they have gone right back to their roots with a remix of Rita Ora‘s hit 2017 single “Your Song.” It has been a while since they’ve released a remix (as they mentioned in their description of the track on SoundCloud) and being that their career kicked off by remixing hit, top 40 music, they definitely put a positive spin on the original. They add chord progressions/piano riffs to the verses to compliment the beauty of Rita Ora’s voice and build it up to the drop in a way that sounds effortless. The drop doesn’t hit too hard, but hits just enough to get the crowd moving, as the high-pitched lead synths and bass guitar combo give the song a funky, house vibe.

ZHU has become the latest in top talents stepping up to re-work Portugal. The Man’s new single “Feel It Still” into their own.

GRiZ shares chill 4/20 ballad with ProbCause & Jaye Pryme, ‘Smoke That’

This post was originally published on this site

Although GRiZ released a full 13-track Good Will Continue (Remixes) project just a little more than a week ago, the Colorado-based future funk artist has been busy in his home studio collaborating with some of his friends. After all, Grant Kwiecinski, the man behind GRiZ, is known for regularly hosting live studio feeds on his Facebook page for his beloved fan base, the most recent of which was a jam session hosted at his flat in the Rockies.

“Smoke That,” out Aug. 28, is lighthearted downtempo track that truly speaks to Grant’s love of the ganja. Produced on the national 4/20 holiday with close collaborators ProbCause and Jaye Pryme, the track features all the beautiful funk elements GRiZ has become widely known for, including a saxophone melody and futuristic synth chords, along with some chill candy-glitch samples. The result is a fun and lovable ballad that highlights Pryme’s angelic chorus vocals and ProbCause’s hip-hop lyrics on the verses.

GRiZ releases 13-track remix album, announces full ‘Good Will Continue’ tour

This post was originally published on this site

When Grant Kwiecinski, the man behind GRiZ,  began rolling out his 2017 Fall tour, “Good Will Continue,” it came with suspicions that the Detroit-native was wrapping a new album. Since then, GRiZ has been releasing remix after remix from his now year-old Good Will Prevail LP, including AC Slater’s impressive Nightbass rendering which premiered on DA earlier this week.

So, naturally, it came with more than mere speculation that the future-funk master would release an entire remix package of some heavy hitting, genre-spanning collabs, including Dirty Audio, Juneaux, Tommy Trash, and many more. From the sharp synths of Boogie T’s rework of “Can’t Hold Me Down” to the glitchy bass lines in Barclays Crenshaw‘s re-imagining of “Gotta Push On,” the project is chalked full of high-profile remixes, cleanly rinsed by Kwiecinski himself, as well as features from some up-and-coming producers like Brooklyn’s own Birocratic.

With the release comes the full roll out of his “Good Will Continue” tour, a follow-up to his last album tour, “Good Will Prevail,” which was a response to the overwhelming political negativity of the times. Phase three of the Fall tour now includes six stops along the Midwest and Northeast, including New York State and Kansas City. Now, more than ever, is when we need GRiZ’s positive message of love and self-acceptance.

Tracklist:

  1. Wicked ft. Eric Krasno (Dirty Audio Remix)
  2. Can’t Hold Me Down ft. Tash Neal (Boogie T Remix)
  3. My Friends & I ft. ProbCause (Dusty Bits Remix)
  4. Good Times Roll ft. Big Gigantic (Ephwurd Remix)
  5. I Don’t Mind ft. SunSquabi, Artifakts, & iDa Hawk (Jenaux Remix)
  6. Feelin’ Fine (Rowland Evans Remix)
  7. PS GFY ft. Cherub (Opiuo Remix)
  8. What We’ve Become ft. Cory Enemy & Natalola (Tommy Trash Remix)
  9. If There Ever Comes A Day ft. Eli Paperboy Reed & Louis Futon (IHF Remix)
  10. Rather Be Free ft. Muzzy Bearr (Tisoki Remix)
  11. Gotta Push On ft. Brasstracks & Eric Krasno (Barclay Crenshaw Remix)
  12. Before I Go ft. Leo Napier (AC Slater Remix)
  13. Driftin’ ft. Son Little (Birocratic Remix)

Kaytranada drops delightfully funky remix of Gorillaz’s ‘Strobelight’

This post was originally published on this site

The third track off the album that would re-introduce Gorillaz to the music industry after a seven-year hiatus, “Strobelite” shone as a soulful and successful execution of a different aesthetic for the English band. “Strobelight’s” key distinguishing factor from past Gorillaz branded releases is its retro flair — the song wades into disco/R&B territory, bearing stylistic elements of each genre in a smooth cohesion of sounds.

Kaytranada had previously announced his intent to put forth a remix of the Humanz track, delivering his take on the tune to hordes of Gorillaz fans curious to see just how the Canadian producer will manipulate the song. Although Kaytranada preserves much of the song’s defining soulful nature, he doesn’t hesitate to add his own creative twist, plunging the number a layer deeper in funk levels via the addition of atmospheric dub and percussive elements. The Kaytranada re-imagination noticeably dims the “Strobelite” for a more intimate impression of the original.

Flamingosis x Tokyo Megaplex – Herbie (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

Flamingosis and Tokyo Megaplex have worked hard to cultivate a sample-heavy yet artistically innovative sound. Never failing to bring jazzy and danceable beats to people, the two Brooklyn-based producers have released their third collaborative effort, titled “Herbie.”

Released by SVNSET WAVES, an electronic label out of Texas, the track is a standout on the label’s SVMMER SVN Vol. 5 compilation. A seemingly simple house beat starts the song off, until the plucking of strings and gentle keys transform the track into a smooth, funky masterpiece. The two artists also throw in what might be the all-time most subtle and tasteful sample of the Ying Yang Twins’ iconic 2005 track, “Wait.” This is just another example of the producers’ clever craftsmanship, taking bits and pieces of many tracks and weaving them into a cohesive and fresh sound.
