Well, we’ve reached that time of the week ninjas. FRIDAY. A day where all we can think about is boozin’ and groovin’. After an epic Halloween playlist from last week, I realized that it might be a bit difficult for this ninja to out-do that level of madness that our team put together for those festivities. But don’t worry…this weeks playlist will make you undoubtedly want to shake what yo mama gave you. So it is with great pleasure that I present to you the 123rd volume of our weekly FPP.
As always, #DANCEIRRESPONSIBLY.
Until next week, ninjas.

Cooler Than Me (Eau Claire Remix)
Up and coming producer from DC Eau Claire is back at it with another banger remix! This juicy edit of Mike Posner‘s hit single from a few years ago, “Cooler Than Me,” will have you dancing your pants off. Starting off with vocal samples from the original tune and a funky beat, the talented artist’s rework captures your senses through quirky and clever maneuvers. Combining both higher and lower-pitched vocals, this tune manages to show both complexity and character. It’s catchy, exciting and memorable all at the same time; yes, it’s just that good.
Following the success of her previous hit remix of Stevie Wonder‘s “Uptight”, Eau Claire is definitely making a name for herself in the revival of indie dance scene. Make sure to grab a free download of this remix here and check out her work as as part of Man & Woman, another nu-disco duo.
Black Out Days remix ft. Danny Brown and Leo Justi
Given hip-hop’s influence on their sound, it comes as no surprise that emcees are drawn to the music of Phantogram. Aside from their work with Big Boi, the electro pop/rock duo have seen a number of rappers flip their songs into instrumentals–Ratking‘s take on “Fall in Love” is maybe the best example. Today, we get another stellar hip-hop re-work as Phantogram enlists Danny Brown and Brazilian producer Leo Justi to take on one of their many hits, “Black Out Days.”
Justi does an absolutely amazing job keeping the original in tact while picking up the tempo with 808-percussion and layering of portions of the vocals. At about the 1:45 mark, the beat takes a brief backseat as Danny Brown steps in. When the instrumental returns, the talented emcee hits his stride demonstrating his hard-hitting delivery. Lyrically, this might be one of our favorite verses from Brown so we recommend giving it a close listen. You can check out our interview with Phantogram here if you haven’t already.
Burning Gold (Autograf Remix)
We’ve been swooning over Chicago based house benders Autograf since their debut revision of 50 Cent & Lil’ Kim’s “Magic Stick” over a year ago, and luckily for us, they’ve continually set the bar higher on an already stellar production meter with every passing release. Autograf’s latest tune finds them taking on Christina Perri’s “Burning Gold” and warping it down into a softened dance floor burner while using their future tipping house sounds to reel in both listeners of the “chill” persuasion and dance heads alike. The Autograf boys have always maintained a proper musician’s grasp on compositional dance structure as they’ve fused Flume-wave percussive elements (yeah we just went there) with driving four-four melodies to create their own unique take on modern dance music. This one flits along a beautiful listening line, sounding as sonically inviting through your car speakers as it does commanding a proper stack of club monitors. Snag a copy of Christina Perri’s entire Burning Gold EP here through Atlantic Records on iTunes and let’s all groove out to Autograf’s remix above. Happy Hump Day Ninjas.
Breeze (Tontario & SaxoKid Remix)
Manchester-based group MDNGHT came out with an amazing single titled “Breeze”, which definitely deserves more attention. Today we give you a remix of that tropical goodness by Finnish producer Tontario with saxophone performed by SaxoKid, spicing up an already juicy tune. The track starts off with smooth vocals from their frontman J, followed by percussion that gives off a summery vibe. The deep house edit with the killer saxophone further accentuates the complexity of MDNGHT’s style of music.
Bringing disco music live, these talented musicians are said to resemble the sound of Clean Bandit and Disclosure. We are excited to see what else MDNGHT brings to the table.
Night Terrors of 1927
When You Were Mine Feat. Tegan & Sara (Strange Talk Remix)
LA-based alternative duo Night Terrors of 1927 released their Anything to Anyone EP back in September showcasing their deeply emotional, stadium-worthy brand of alternative music. One of our favorite songs on their recent project is the Tegan and Sara–assisted opener, “When You Were Mine,” a classic pop ballad that revives indie rock of the past in a refreshing and relevant way. We’re excited to bring you the premiere of a fantastic remix of that standout track courtesy Australian electro pop duo, Strange Talk. Their re-imagination transforms “When You Were Mine” into a playful, nu-disco anthem utilizing the vocals flawlessly to maintain some of the original’s sentiments. This one’s perfect to jumpstart your morning with a dance party. You can grab a copy of NTO1927’s EP here and check out their upcoming tour dates here.
