Wow. Well, this is where we would usually open up with some witty sentence to make everyone giggle, but we’re afraid that there aren’t too many words left in us that can describe this majestic wonder from New York’s, Tei Shi. The dreamy, seductive siren just unleashed a chilling new original, “Bassically”, and we can’t seem to escape her elusive voice that echoes inside our minds. “Bassically” is filled with synth-heavy melodies, reverberated elements that linger in the background and blend together with accompanying notes, and a haunting vocal from Tei Shi that teases your every sense. If you’re just now settling in for the night, then you came at the right time because this song will undeniably leave you begging for more.

Bigger Than Prince (Coyu Remix)
Slinger has been an artist with whom we’ve come to fall for over the last year through a select batch of excellent disco tinged house remixes, but today he’s back with a debut original single. “How Does It Feel” is a deep-disco dance piece encasing a synth-pop groover at its heart. The tune plays as slick as something out of Todd Terje or even Lindstrøm’s catalogs with even a touch of the same futuristic sensibility that made Grum’s 2011 album Heartbeats just so… cool. If this level of craftsmanship is what we can expect from Slinger’s individual output, we’re all hands on deck. Stream “How Does It feel” above and cap your work or school day with something sexy and dance inducing.

Zombie (3LAU TomorrowWorld Edit)
I can remember it like it was yesterday. On my desk (which I assume was meant for homework space) was my mixer and two tables, all hooked in to four massive floor speakers. While you might think this set up was necessary for a proper house party, it was actually what my dorm room looked like way back in 2002. While I’m sure everyone on the 3rd floor of the McCowen dorms loved my super smooth mixes, my professors sure didn’t appreciate my lack of studious efforts. Regardless, Zombie Nation’s “Kernkraft 400″ had a heavy spot in my regular rotation, which is why I was admittedly excited to see a fresh new take on it.
Recently Montreal DJ/Producer duo Paris & Simo created an edit of their own, taking it out of that decade and into this one with some new-school appeal. 3LAU having a knack for creating stellar bootlegs and edits of his own, took their version and put together what you’re seeing here today. While originally reserved for both artist’s live sets, 3LAU is releasing this into the wild in celebration of his TomorrowWorld debut, and with the intent of building up some hype for Dance Floor Filth 4.
Paris & Simo sent me a 1 drop draft version of this edit almost 8 months ago; after playing it in nearly every set, I told the boys I was going to do my own edit / mix. It’s been an essential part of my sets and a well kept secret between the 3 of us, exclusive to our live shows. It was finally time to unleash it after all of the amazing feedback we received!
Aside from being an energetic take that pays homage to the original, this edit also serves as the perfect tune to throw into those upcoming Halloween playlists. Make sure to head over to 3LAU’s webpage on October 13th to snag your copy.
You need to close your eyes for this song, trust me.
Her second single to date, HANAH keeps us feeling like we are on a moving escalator of never ending musical dreams. Her recent release ‘Hideaway’ co-produced with Luca Buccellati, is an honest and gut-wrenching tale one experiences with inner conflict. HANAH’s stunning voice is a mix of soul and quiet pop, yes quiet pop. A voice smooth like honey, HANAH paints an exotic picture of the inner minds of each and every one of us, inviting us to walk with her on this dreamy music world she is painting with each lyric. One thing is for sure, this young artist is going to make a name for herself more than she already has so keep listening, many more journeys of the music kind to come from HANAH.
