Destructo lays down his own house spin on Oliver’s ‘Last Forever’

This post was originally published on this site

Destructo is just on a different wavelength than us mere mortals. He helms one of the largest event production forces in the country, serves as one of dance music’s most trusted A&R forces, holds down a SiriusXM residency, and lives out the dream of being a world-famous touring DJ all at once. It seems like every week Gary Richards has something exciting to offer — he can link up with Busta Rhymes for a proper hip-hop cut, and then follow up with a club-primed house piece just days later without missing a beat. Presently, Destructo is gracing us with a new take on Oliver and Sam Sparro’s “Last Forever,” dropping off a solid dose of disco with a slick bit of contemporary house influence.

Putting his chameleonic studio capabilities to work, the “Catching Plays” producer takes on Oliver’s “Last Forever” keeping the original tune’s plucking, pronounced bass line as the backbone, but offering a more subdued, house-leaning spin on his take. The remix comes hot off the announcement of LA’s new AMFAMFAMF summer event, and judging by Richards’ momentum both in and out of the studio, 2018 is bound to be a banner year for Destructo.

Los Angeles duo Oliver — Vaughn Oliver and Oliver Goldstein — shared their remix of Beck‘s track, “Up All Night,” the third single from his thirteenth studio album, Colors.

Adding their own invigorating synth colors to the track, Oliver reinvents the track into a robotic counterpart, instilling a sense of manufacture to its central elements. It’s danceable, friendly, and a forthright effort from the duo. The remix pays due homage to Beck’s lush vocal abilities while shifting into futuristic mode, with the end result entirely delectable.

Oliver released their otherworldly album, Full Circleback in September.

Oliver releases stunning LP, ‘Inner Circle: Remixes and Rarities’

Los Angeles-based producer duo Oliver has released an innovative LP titled Inner Circle: Remixes and Rarities. Saturated with their unique funked-out style, Oliver captures a distinct vintage sound infused with contemporary electronic elements. The LP includes four new tracks, as well as three remixes from their studio album, Full Circle, which dropped last September. Each new track on the LP showcases another side of the duo’s groovy approach to their work.

Filled with beautiful harmonic progression, the first original, “Big City,” flaunts a combination of melodies intertwined together to create a stunning contrast between bass guitar progressions and electrifying piano chords, all tied together by waves of otherworldly synths.

Their second piece, “Endless Conversation,” featuring Johnnie Newman, features uplifting vocals on top of dynamic bursts of percussion. The unwavering bass line is complemented by syncopated beats and an intriguing melody.

“Charisma,”the third original, is more downtempo than the other tracks and incorporates several layers of glowing synths with steady undertones. Jamie Lidell’s colorful vocals add an alluring dimension to the work, creating a sensual vibe with inviting lyrics and an irresistible beat.

In their last original, “Bygones,” Oliver flexes their signature sound, producing a hard-hitting melody layered over waves of unrelenting bass. In line with the style that has made the duo renowned, Oliver places a soothing interlude of minimalist sound in the middle of the piece, but then amps up the energy with a riveting build that leads into an intricate climax.

With their first release of 2018, Oliver once again flaunts their flawless production skill, elaborate technique, and mastery of combining vintage sounds with a style of their own in Inner Circle: Remixes and Rarities.

Notaker has dropped Too Smooth featuring Grey MTTR on Monstercat today. This song is not your average Notaker track, and that excites me. As much as I love an artist’s signature sound, what I love to see more is for them to go out of their comfort zone and try something new. That being said

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.

Tove Lo has unveiled a three-track set of remixes for her song “Disco Tits” just a few months after the song’s initial release.

Kicking off the remix package is a grooving electro-funk rework from LA-based duo Oliver. Though the original track had a prominent bass line, Oliver have crafted a more dance floor-ready take on “Disco Tits.” They’ve modified the disco-pop song’s backbone, drawing attention away from the vocals a bit to focus on the dance-heavy beat. While the rhythm is front and center of this rework, Oliver pay homage to Tove Lo’s original intentions by giving the remix a sexy, sassy vibe that fits with the sultry lyrics.

KREAM and Beatanger are also featured in the remix package, out now on Universal Music.
