Paris’ own Wielki just dropped a huge one. Like, literally it’s just coming to the world now through this premiere. It’s always a privilege to partner up with an amazing talent, pushing a quality record. Wielki is accustomed to creating great work, but the official remix of “Lordly” by Feder is a real treat.
The seven minute remix is as good as it is lengthy. There is no moment when you lose the feeling of entertainment it brings you from the very start. It’s deep, driving grooves are inescapably infectious, making this one especially potent in a club atmosphere. Wielki manages to recycle several parts of the original, while also keeping the song fresh from its first counterpart. “Lordly” goes from a dark, poppy sensation to a thrilling techno delicacy.
Following a debut single that we still haven’t been able to shake, Bristol production duo Punctual return today with the accompanying B-Side. At nearly 10 minutes, “Fix” solidifies the promise heard on “Eva,” expanding on their gorgeously expressive take on house music. A simple piano chord progression kicks off the track and persists through out changing form with the building elements around it. Just as you start getting lost in the atmosphere, the percussion filters in around the 2 minute mark providing an irresistible groove.
While the first 4 minutes would make a strong track on their own, it’s the second half that sets Punctual apart. As the percussion is stripped back, vocals emerge that recall classic house music in a bridge that beautifully builds back into the song’s addicting repetition. Punctual feel like a breathe of fresh air in the crowd of fad-influenced electronic producers–standing out without sacrificing accessibility or simplicity. We’re excited to see what they come up next but the “Eva”/”Fix” EP should hold us over for quite some time–you can grab it here.
The Thirst ft. Zhao
Falling somewhere in between a house lover’s delicious dream come true and a 80s pop enthusiast’s party-starting secret weapon, “The Thirst” nestles in between generations of music lovers, giving an experience that says “age is but a number. Let’s fuckin’ dance!”
We wouldn’t expect much less from LA-based Eric Sharp, though, as he’s continually impressed us with previous vocal-driven tunes. At times, they showcase a breadth of musical tastes, casually flirting with the experimental side of music. Other times, they fuse house and pop together seamlessly, providing a sound worthy of the masses. This release grabbed our attention immidiately, leading us to the groovy, live-recorded bassline and and guitar work, much like a cartoon bear being lead by the wafting scent of a freshly made pie.
Part of the intrigue of this track, in particular, is the addition of multi-instrumentalist Zhao, who not only brings live instrumentation, but his alluring voice, as well. After crafting this hip-shaker, they gave it a few test runs out and about in the City of Angels. As you could guess, the reception was on-point, hence the release with Liftoff Records.
One of the best kept secrets in dance music is UFO!. The San Francisco beatsmith abides by good music and good music only. Sure, he’s got a cool brand going, but he is sticking to his guns as one of the best veterans in the game.
Recently, he’s started unveiling his four part collaboration series. The tracks don’t have names, but they don’t really need them; they are just that good. Part one started with Choppa Dunks, and part two just came out with the Portugal producer Holly. Both tracks are absolutely savage, although they differ in style. With Choppa’s collab, we get a more of a jungle/reggae vibe that brings an obscene amount of energy. With Holly, we get a more of a bass heavy trap tune, although it doesn’t limit itself to that genre. It bounces all over the place, making it one powerful and dynamic single. Two more collaborations are coming, one next week and the last coming from G-Buck on November 1st. Get ready.
Lying To You (RAC Mix)
Josh Legg’s bedroom recording project turned full-fledged live troupe, Goldroom, has been a mainstay for years here at TMN. His brand of syrupy-slick, dancefloor-directed electro-pop has captured the hearts (and ears for that matter) of listeners from a plethora of genres. Whether it’s the indie archetypes, bubblegum pop consumers, or underground dance fans; Goldroom’s sounds has a resonation that few “dance” acts could dream of achieving. No doubt part of that luster and allure comes from the seemingly endless malleability of a Goldroom tune. Legg’s polished singles can be flipped, chopped and beefed up in so many different directions; and they have been as well. On the heels of a debut long player, West of the West, and accompanying national tour with Autograf (tour dates are listed below), Goldroom’s “Lying To You” has been scooped up by another one of our favorite producers, Andre Allen Anjos -better known to the world simply as RAC.
With similar yet opposing structural aesthetics, RAC remains true to the essence of Goldroom’s original recording, but whereas its counterpart is a slow-burning slice of 80’s nostalgia with a contemporary vocal, Anjos minimalizes his approach even further using a rolling synth punch and flitty pad work to make his mark. We’re big fans of both, but a fresh coat of RAC wax on a tune always stokes our fancy. Listen to RAC’s remix above, and check out the dates for Autograf & Goldroom’s tour below.
Bolide (LONE Remix)
Australian duo Kllo have been on our radar ever since the release of their gorgeous 2014 debut, Cusp, which found them nestled squarely between cozy R&B and dance music. After spending much of 2015 touring behind that successful project, they returned this year with the Well Worn EP. Their latest work saw the vocalist/production team of Chloe Kaul and Simon Lam further refine their sound delving deeper into various electronic influences. Of the 5 tracks, “Bolide” has resonated the most with fans and for good reason. With a pulsing bass line, subtly-crafted percussion and gliding vocals, it’s a track that envelopes the listener with emotion.
As they continue building momentum, Kllo have commissioned legendary UK producer Lone to take on “Bolide” with phenomenal results. The original’s ongoing vocal chop feeds perfectly into Lone’s distinctive blend of hip-hop and house stylings. While the remix is similarly atmospheric, it employs furious percussion and layered pads–taking it from downtempo to club-ready without sacrificing the most enticing elements.
Give this one a listen above and make sure to check out the Well Worn EP if you haven’t yet. Kllo are currently on the road touring with Rufus Du Sol and NAO–check out dates after the jump! Continue reading
