The Knocks & Captain Cuts – House Party (Oliver Disco Mixx)

This post was originally published on this site

LA-based duo Oliver have been consistently making a name for themselves with an array of innovative originals and funky remixes. Each release is fresher and more inventive than the last, and their most recent song is a perfect example.

Oliver have released a “disco mixx” of The Knocks and Captain Cuts‘ “House Party,” which came out last month. The original possessed the classic feel-good vibe that is consistent in both The Knocks and Captain Cuts’ music. Though that collaboration was already exceptional, Oliver have stepped in and turned the clock back to the golden age of disco. The “disco mixx” of “House Party” turns the focus on the groovy beat, nearly doubling the length of the track. The original mix’s vocals were primed for a reworking like this, giving Oliver’s rendition a seamless a life all of its own.

Pomo remixes Hall & Oates’ classic ‘I Can’t Go For That’

This post was originally published on this site

Canadian producer and multi-instrumentalist Pomo has released his contemporary development of Hall & Oates‘ smash hit of ’81, “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do),’ via Ultra Music. The original track, released amid Hall and Oats’s salad days, marked the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame duo’s fourth number-one hit on the Billboard Top 100.

Pomo, known for blending elements of hip-hop, house, and funk, officially emerged on the scene in 2016 with his debut EP, The Other Day, which netted him a Juno Award.

Pomo’s rendition of “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” demonstrates how modern innovation to a classic can be tastefully executed. Pomo’s production succeeds in highlighting, as opposed to suppressing, the original track’s funky lifeblood. Still especially discernible is Hall & Oats’s groovy bass work and guitar chords, emanating through Pomo’s implemented house beat and considerable autotune.

Eric Prydz debuts brand new track ‘Fulda’ on latest episode of Epic Radio

This post was originally published on this site

Each and every sonic endeavor from Eric Prydz is a stunning work of art. Namely, his long-running Epic Radio show via Beats 1 stands out as an exemplary facet. Prydz cemented this notion further on the show’s latest installment, broadcast on November 17, where he debuted a world exclusive — a brand new track entitled “Fulda.”

Alongside the speechless-rendering, irresistibly danceable “Fulda” was a handful of other tracks showcasing Prydz’s curational depth, from the likes of his newly minted Tonja Holma alias, to KiNK, and even Lindstrøm. While it’s unsure as to when or if his new album will arrive soon, Prydz seems to be consistently serving up newness to tie his fans over until that big moment arrives.

Eric Prydz to release final version of the massive Pryda track ‘Stay With Me’ on November 20

This post was originally published on this site

Earlier this month, one of dance music’s champions, the venerable Eric Prydz, debuted his new alias, Tonja Holma, on Pryda Recordings.

In the four-track offering, Prydz takes a deep dive into his immensely impressive new take on progressive house. Much more minimalistic in its approach, the new alias begs its listeners to expect the unexpected. And although Tonja Holma has already made several appearances on Prydz’ Essential Mixes, it’s a thrilling venture to see out to fruition, nonetheless.

Now, Prydz’ has announced his “Stay With Me” Pryda tune —largely known by fans as the “Psytrance ID” — will see its official, final mastering’s release on November 20.

Most recently, the track saw out an inaugural slot on Prydz’ November 9 Epic Radio show via Beats 1, although, it has previously seen the light of day on Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy, and even garnered itself plentiful YouTube rips.

Cashmere Cat’s love for Australia inspires new mix

This post was originally published on this site

On most every front, Cashmere Cat has had a standout 2017. The enigmatic producer released his debut album, 9, that marked a pronounced move into an intriguing experimental style — to say nothing of his production credits on some of the biggest hits for other artists.

The Norway native isn’t slowing down, however, as he’s released a new, near hour-long mix inspired by his love for the island continent of Australia. Originally broadcast on Australia’s Triple J radio station, the mix features tracks from the likes of Four Tet, Machinedrum, frequent collaborator Sinjin Hawke, and, of course, Cashmere Cat himself.

Another week finished brings time to unwind. Hopefully, you have some dancing ahead of you this weekend. But regardless of whether a nice dance sweat is in your cards, we’ve curated a Launchpad playlist brimming with tracks sure to liven up any night. And if you’d hadn’t planned to go out this weekend, you might reconsider after listening, either that or simply bring the party to you.

DA Launchpad Selects:

Secretsundaze – “Motorway Jam”

“Motorway Jam” is a pristine jam to kick off the weekend with in style. It’s a driving number, groovy in its commencement, only in no time to sweep its listener up for a few laps around the track. Clocking in at seven minutes, Seceretsundaze seems to have found the secret sauce on “Motorway Jam.”

Far Kanal – “Grab Em”
Far Kanal has taken a grisly utterance from Donald Trump and uttered it irresistibly danceable. The tongue-in-cheek tech house grooviness of this number is positivley impressive.

Secretsundaze – “Motorway Jam”
Deadspace & Dateless – “In The Mood”
YENI – Hang On (Wigbert Remix)”
Far Kanal – “Grab Em (Original)”
Dominic Comello -“The Intruder”
Danny Kolk – “Game of Life”

Memtrix- Teeth & Turn

This post was originally published on this site

Memtrix is one of the brightest talents to have emerged from the British drum & bass scene in recent years. Having been recently been recruited by The Upbeats for a remix of their single “Say Go,” the producer continues to intrigue listeners with his unique blend of melancholic yet energetic DnB.

Taken from his brand new label, Memtrix Recordings, “Teeth & Turn” is unhinged and raw. The track’s beauty and appeal lies in its simplicity as Memtrix has layered a few synths and aggressive drum samples on top of a flawless, smoldering bass line — that makes for a supremely explosive and enjoyable club-focused tune.

San Holo debuts new uplifting single ‘One Thing’

This post was originally published on this site

2017 has proven to be a breakout year for Dutch DJ/producer San Holo. The bitbird label head has garnered immense praise from around the world of dance music and looks poised to capitalize on the success of hit singles like “We Rise”  and “I Still See Your Face,” as he brings his Gouldain Finch 2 tour across the US.

Now San Holo is back with yet another stirring new track entitled “One Thing,” which he teased last week at a November 11 show in Boston. The emotive new tune perfectly encapsulates San Holo’s captivating sonic style and features ethereal vocals and infectious lyrics that blend exquisitely with gripping percussive elements and uplifting synths.

Kasbo delights on rework of Jai Wolf’s ‘Indian Summer,’ apart of the ‘Kindred Spirits Remixes’ EP

This post was originally published on this site

In 2015, then 23-year-old Jai Wolf – real name Sajeeb Saha – unleashed his immensely genre-challenging tune “Indian Summer.”

While Wolf’s original stands well on its own, if there was anyone put their spin on the track, few would do it the justice better than Swedish producer Kasbo. As such, Kasbo has done just that. He’s reimagined the euphoric number in the most elated tone imaginable. Kasbo ascends to the sonic heavens on his “Indian summer” rework, where he imbues its guitar chords and drums with pearlescent future-leaning nuance.

“Was an honor to remix Jai Wolf’s iconic song “Indian Summer.” Was challenging to make it my own cause I felt that the song was very much what it was supposed to be already. Ended up doing a few remixes, all of which were very similar to the original, but finally, I decided that I had to do something completely different, which became the final product…,” he said of the track.

Certainly, Kasbo inoculated the number with his own style, but his reworking’s impressiveness lies in the newfound variation’s ability to resist imposing on the track’s integrated integrity.

Kasbo quickly ascended in the indietronica ranks after touring alongside ODESZA in 2015. Since then he’s been riding on the coattails of his feel-good 2017 track “Found You, ” as well his more recent release via ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective. If its elegance serves as any indication, we can expect 2018 to be a prosperous year for the ever-rising producer.

Kasbo’s remix joins the work of Hotel Garuda, Robotaki, and others in the eight-track Kindred Spirits Remixes EP, which serves up new renditions of Jai Wolf’s album released in 2016.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 15

This post was originally published on this site

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

Since they’re on tour together, it was only a matter of time until we got some form of a San Holo/Just A Gent collaboration. Australian producer Just A Gent has flipped San Holo and James Vincent McMorrow‘s “The Future” into some unclassifiable futuristic (appropriate, right?) bass madness. He’s classified his flip as “newskool trap,” and as always, his sound design is top-of-the-line. Read more about his creative process in our interview with him earlier this week.

It had been 10 months since Irish producer Murtagh had uploaded any new music… until eight-minute “Pressure” hit his SoundCloud profile on Nov. 14 and refreshed his fans on his style — which, by the way, has changed drastically. “Pressure” is vastly different from the release before it, “Synapse,” which the producer attributes to honing his style and realizing the kind of music he wanted to produce. “The new music will be more focussed than what I have released to date,” he explains. If what’s coming is anything like the cinematic, bass-heavy journey of “Pressure,” I’m looking forward to it.

Autograf‘s “You Might Be” was enchanting in its original form: a picture-perfect hopeful song about the possibility of new love. Seven months after its initial release, MICA has put out his own rendition of the track. He’s turned it into something even more moving, including emotional soundbites from The Perks of Being A Wallflower and The Spectacular Now to complement the slow-paced remix he’s crafted. Its dreamy, spacey feel brings out the passion behind the track, and it’s entrancing.

Remember “Smooth” by Santana and Matchbox Twenty’s Rob Thomas? It came out in 1999 on Santana’s Supernatural album and was a huge hit, winning three Grammys and charting across the globe. When a modernized remix of it appeared on Bishu‘s SoundCloud, I was promptly carted off to my childhood — this time experiencing the song in a whole different light. Bishu’s remix plays up the Latin flair of the track and adds components of contemporary dance music, making it fresh while still hitting the nostalgia factor.

Ever since his incredible covers of George Michael‘s “Careless Whisper” and Alex Clare‘s “Too Close,” I’ve kept an eye out for new material from Prismo. His latest single, “Pretty Stranger,” surfaced on Nov. 10 and has remained in my music rotation this whole week. With its catchy vocals, lighthearted melody and a bouncing beat, he’s once again hit the mark.
