The Chainsmokers share six-track remix pack for ‘Honest’

This post was originally published on this site

Almost four months have passed since The Chainsmokers released their debut studio album, Memories…Do Not Open, and things have been quiet — at least musically — in the Alex and Drew camp. The EDM frat boys’ ascent into commercial pop stardom has earned them a 61-week domination of the Billboard Top Ten, a Grammy for ‘Best Dance Music Recording,’ and a sold-out headlining North American tour.

While on that tour, the guys began to notice how well their poppy piano ballad, “Honest,” was being received by fans. What better move, then, than to release an official collection of their favorite remixes for the track, which is out today, August 4th.

From Lifelike’s taunting, disco-induced rendition to Rootkit’s seething, downtempo re-boot, the “Honest” Remixes feature many intriguing subtleties that highlight the emotional lyrics of Alex Pall. Perhaps most interesting on the pack is the speedy bpm of Gil Glaze’s remix against the slowed-down pace of Malibou & UNKWN’s brassy version. The pack also features club-ready remixes from the likes of Tritonal and SAVI.

Umii – ‘This Time’ EP

This post was originally published on this site

After releasing singles over the past few months, Umii, a duo consisting of rising vocalist Reva DeVito and producer B. Bravo, have released their first EP. Titled This Time, the three-track project explores funk, disco, and more.

“Don’t Let Up” is an upbeat and lighthearted song with an infectious bounce. The next track, “Dangerous,” is a soulful disco tune, with DeVito’s voice floating over B. Bravo’s funky production. The final track, “Masquerade,” is a downtempo R&B jam that shows off Umii’s more serious side. The EP, released on Portland’s Fresh Selects imprint (home of Mndsgn, SiR, and more), is Umii’s debut, although these two up-and-coming artists surely have more work to come.

This post was originally published on this site

Los Angeles house gurus Bixel Boys have delivered a summery disco rendition of Drake and Kanye West‘s track “Glow” off of the former’s recent LP More Life.

With a heavy emphasis placed on Drake’s sample of “Devotion” by Earth, Wind, & Fire, the Bixel Boys craft a danceable, feel good track that features a significant tempo increase from the original. The old school, groovy vocals combined with West crooning “Watch out for me, I’m bound to glow” sets the perfect mood for a dance party, a day at the beach, or any event that needs an injection of summertime vibes.

Savoy and Fatherdude capture an authentic disco sound with ‘Living Color’

This post was originally published on this site

Many dedicated musicians have a certain sound or feeling to their work that goes along with a specific genre or set of genres – in other words, they have succeeded in finding “their sound.” It goes without saying that the electronic band Savoy found their core sonic style long ago. What may not have been as clear until now, however, is how well Fatherdude’s vocals work in a classic disco-sounding track.

Savoy has always shown a mature synthesis of their varying influences into a cohesive sound. With their latest single, “Living Color,” the trio from Brooklyn, with the help of vocalist Fatherdude, take on the style that they say is “a culmination of who [they] really are as artists and what has inspired us the most.”

Thus, they created a vibrant rendition of a classic disco tune, circa the late ’70s and early ’80s. It would have been very difficult to find a vocalist that fits the bill for this track better than Fatherdude with his soulfully smooth vocal lines that could be said to already have a tone reminiscent of the disco and funk eras.

Savoy recently made the bold move of giving away their discography for free, a great way to get current and future fans warmed up for their forthcoming EP, Tomorrow Today.

POOLCLVB – You Give Me Love (Original Mix + Remixes)

This post was originally published on this site

POOLCLVB is a name that has become synonymous with wavy nu-disco basslines and bright summer house. With an ability to pull from the fun-loving spirit of the ’90s and infuse it with modern house production, the Aussie producer has carved his own way into becoming a staple in the scene. While the US is in the middle of winter, POOLCLVB is soaking up the sun down under and has transformed it into his new single “You Give Me Love.”

A real chord-slamming stomper, “You Give Me Love” melds soulful vocals onto a throbbing bassline and bright running synths to emit an undeniably upbeat mood. In addition to the single, POOLCLVB commissioned four up-and-comers — Volkoder, Stace Cadet, TWERL, and Hier — to take his new single for their own spin.

Volkoder and Stace Cadet take the house route as Volkoder uses the original sparingly around a hypnotic drum loop he concocted, while Stace Cadet reimagines POOLCLVB’s single with less emphasis on the vocals and more on the instruments. TWERL’s remix spices things up by reworking “You Give Me Love” into a pulsating future bass heater. Finally, Hier infuses sounds that remind us of ’90s video games to come forth with one of the most unique flips.
