Gotta Have You (The Twelves Italo Remix)

Who’s ready to suit up and head out for a night on the town? If you raised your hand, then you need to drop whatever you’re doing an take a gander at this 80′s-inspired synth-heavy remix of Madison’s “Gotta Have You.”

As if extracted from an earlier time filled with big hair and excessive cocaine abuse (or so we’ve heard), this interpretation of NYC artist Madison has us shaking and grooving all over the room. The original version of “Gotta Have You” boasted a well-defined guitar riff – the kind that has you wanting to wail on out notes on across imaginary frets in your car – along with grainy vocals distorted to give the perfect amount of edge and pop all wrapped into a perfect, pretty package.

The Twelves, whom claim one of our favorite remixes of all time (hint: it involves Two Door Cinema Club), have taken this garage-rock tune and spun it into a dancefloor pleaser with it’s 80′s synth pop soundscape. The bass line is light and twangy, the percussion is pleasantly simulated, and the vocal sampling is damn near perfect.

All in all, this tune is a stellar piece of remix perfection, and ideal for your first round of shots this weekend.

[Pop-House] Listenbee – Save Me

Save Me

The muscle behind Kiesza’s viral tune “Hideaway”, NYC based imprint Lokal Legend, have dropped their latest release on us from Listenbee, “Save Me”, and it’s got us bubbling fizzy all over the office this morning. With his debut, Listenbee’s already got us brewing up comparisons to Robin Schulz, using an army of clean acoustic guitar noodling over a peanut-buttery thick four-four kick and melodious percussion to induce that warm and fuzzy feeling only the perfect groovy house track could elicit. To say we’re impressed with Lokal Legend and Listenbee’s brief output would be a bit of an understatement, and we’ll be over here salivating for more from both entities in the near future. For now, stream “Save Me” from Listenbee above, and cop the free download in exchange for a soundcloud “follow” here.

[Nu-Disco/Dance-Pop] Kimbra – Miracle (ROOM8 Remix)

Miracle (ROOM8 Remix)

L.A. future disco players Ezra Reich and Nic Johns, who operate under the ROOM8 surname, have delivered perhaps the biggest musical pick-me-up of the week here at TMN with their synth washed, John Hughes-era tipping dance revision of one of our favorite pop darlings Kimbra and her single “Miracle”. This jumping dance tune plays somewhere between Club 8′s syrupy dance-pop and Viceroy’s high-energy disco, with a smooth underground sensibility and edge that is often times lost amongst dance-floor driven nu-disco cuts. ROOM8 works a crafty balance of retro sound kits with a contemporary approach, and quite honestly, Kimbra’s vocal stylings echo as if they were made for the 80′s neon era. This one is being given away as a free download; so grab a copy here, dust off your sweat bands and footwork those high tops all over the floor.

[Nu-Disco/House] Birdee – Tornera’ Il Sole [TMN Premiere]

Tornera' Il Sole

Marcello De Angelis has toiled within dance music production for over the last decade; accruing loads of accolades and choice support along the way. From Laidback Luke to Congorock, a deal with Fatboy Slim’s Southern Fried Records and regular play on BBC Radio 1, Angelis’ Birdee project has been a conduit for some of electronic music’s most notable tastemakers to rally behind -and for completely good reason. Birdee’s latest single “Tornera’ Il Sole” rides a rare and sought after crossover playability; with a high-energy feel that could find a home on dance music’s biggest stages or festivals, but with a slick nu-disco fueled bass and synth line that could easily be pitched down to fit into any underground disko or house set. “Tornera’ Il Sole”, with its chunky but dashing  groove was the perfect track to drag this writer out of bed this morning, and for our dance enthusiasts, we think you’ll absolutely agree. Grab the free download from Birdee’s Soundcloud here, and stream the tune before anyone else above.
