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.

While we still may not be exactly sure who the man behind the baklava is, we are sure that whoever it is knows how to make some amazing music. Fresh off of his latest mix “Who Is Malaa 17“, Malaa has dropped in my opinion the grooviest house track of the year with “Paris 96′”.

Drake – Glow (Bixel Boys Edition)

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.

PYLOT – Shadowtask EP [Monstercat]

This post was originally published on this site

There’s no denying that PYLOT is one of the most mysterious projects Monstercat has had to offer in the label’s history. The producer’s identity has been kept entirely secret since his 2015 debut “After Dark,” with releases being accompanied by puzzling journal entries that create an epic saga and help further explain the futuristic character that is PYLOT.

Though his story is captivating (to say the least), I’m personally much more interested in the music. PYLOT was one of the first on Monstercat to release synthwave, even before the genre gained heavy support (thank S U R V I V E for that one). Not only that, but PYLOT’s sound is virtually unmatched, and the aura of mystery surrounding the producer only makes the project even more unique.

Yesterday – seemingly out of thin air – came PYLOT’s debut EP Shadowtask. With five brand new originals, the producer’s discography has doubled since last week. While EPs released like this one often end up feeling weak and thrown together, Shadowtask seems to be an exception to the rule, with the EP carrying some of PYLOT’s best work to date.

It’s been nine months since “The Place I Once Knew” was released, and it seems that PYLOT has really stepped up his game since then. Shadowtask is a determined collection of work, featuring more instrumental elements, more vocals, more stylistic diversity and – in general – more creativity than ever before. Much of the EP is fueled by 80s-influenced electric guitar riffs, which give PYLOT’s sound the energy boost it really needed. This is especially evident on the EP’s title track, as well as its intro “Caine.”

Speaking of the title track, it only took one listen for “Shadowtask” to become my all-time favorite PYLOT track. The euphoria it brings is unforgettable, with its undeniably catchy lead and punchy percussion. The track’s Daft Punk-inspired talkbox vocals also make this one a standout in PYLOT’s discography.

The energy tracks like this bring thankfully doesn’t feel overwhelming when listening through Shadowtask, probably because there are enough points of downtime to keep the EP afloat. The slow synthwave jam “Locke” serves as one of the EP’s definitive standout tracks, throwing back to PYLOT classics like “Flashbacks.”

This EP took my notions of PYLOT being an average artist and turned him into a new favorite. Simply said, Shadowtask leaves me perplexed and eager for more.

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.

Your EDM Premiere: Televisor – Odyssey ft. Danyka Nadeau [Funky Way]

This post was originally published on this site

I’ve been listening to Televisor for nearly as long as I’ve been listening to electronic music. After going through my pop house and dubstep phases, I inevitably found my way headed toward French house and nu-disco styles, of which I consider Televisor to be one of their foremost ambassadors.

If you need any proof of such a thing, you need only listen to their new track “Odyssey,” featuring the always glorious Danyka Nadeau. “Odyssey” has all the hallmarks of a poppy, upbeat disco classic. That pounding piano riff coupled with the talkbox vocal chops and of course an ethereal female vocal to tie it all together… all the pieces are there. If this were released in the ’70s, there’s no doubt it would have been a radio hit.

That being said, the quality of the production is as good as ever and we’ll be jamming to this no matter the decade. Check it out below!
