Parisian Martin Solveig has seen a rapid rise to success ever since the release of his multi-platinum selling hit “Hello”. Once the world heard his innate gift for creating driving disco pop melodies and discovering soaring vocal lines the sky became the limit. Most recently Solveig was asked to produce the legendary Madonna’s new album including her number one single “Give Me All Your Lovin”. His latest EP is a collection of original tracks and remixes from the likes of A-Trak, Madeon and TheFatRat. For your nu disco electro listening pleasure we present TheFatRat’s slamming remix. Be sure to pick up “The Night Out EP” on iTunes and don’t miss Solveig on tour at Coachella, Tao and several other US stops.

Crash & The Bandicoots have a name that stands out, reminding me of my playstation 1 adventures during long grade school afternoons, almost as much as their sound. In the ever growing world of lo fidelity pop music, the group has managed to stand apart from the crowds by channelling different influences- where most artists are nodding in the direction of another decade, Crash is nodding to an entire musical movement- with a culmination of English antics and rhythm driven sounds.
“Don’t Have Any Legs” has been around for a little while now and its amazing that the blog world is just now getting ahold of it. I think we’ll keep better watch on this group from now on, so long as they keep putting out tracks of this caliber. Stream it Below:

There are times when we just cant bare listening to another remix of a popular song (Avicii’s Levels comes to mind). However, as soon as time passes by (usually after 1-2 years), listening to an old favorite can actually be very welcoming. This brings us to DJ Fresh 2010 MEGA HIT ‘Gold Dust’ (first released in 2008 but re-released featuring vocals from Ce’Cile). Its impact it had on the EDM world was astounding and played a huge rule helping to popularize dubstep around the world.
Now early in 2012, producer Joe Gale, aka WBBL, from Guildford, Britain has brought it back with a funky edit giving the song its youth back again. Stream it bellow and also check out his 18-minute promo mix after that.

DANCE DANCE DANCE. R&B songstress Rebecca Ferguson‘s new single “Glitter & Gold” got an extra level of bounce thanks largely in part to up-and-coming producer Cahill. The gorgeous vocal range of Ferguson is masterfully layered over hypnotizing retro piano line and satisfying builds ups that will create the illusion of being dead center inside an early 90′s discotheque.

Alvin Risk, the Washington D.C. remixing prodigy supported by the likes of Skrillex and Kaskade just blew our minds once again. Producing a reggae-infused track using Skrillex’s Ruffneck Bass and pulling samples from Ini Kamoze’s ‘World A Music’ (The actual original sample Damien Marley used for creating ‘Welcome to Jamrock’), Alvin Risk extends the original banger into a refreshing summer regaestep monster. This track seems to be ripped out of 12th Planet and Skrillex’s set at Ultra Music Festival in Miami. No words on any official release.

Brooklyn’s Jesse Marchant, known musically as JBM, has just put out the second single from his forthcoming sophomore album, titled Stray Ashes, which is set for release this May. The track is a drum and guitar loop Jesse has titled “Winter Ghosts” and the music perfectly compliments a lonely, eerie, and kind of desperate name like that. The vocals are harmonious but haunting, and each listen reveals new depth to the work and melody that was put in to every layer of this track. Stream “Winter Ghosts” below and look for JBM on tour in support of Stray Ashes.

Last year Dirty Projectors, in an interview with Spin, hinted that they had developed a sort of dark side while working on their sixth studio effort. There are a few things about this record that are unique though. One of them is the afformentioned dark side- as shown in their recent single “Gun Has No Trigger”. The other is that this record can hardly be called a “studio effort” at all… it was recorded in upstate New York in the confines of a log cabin- without the gloss and comfort of a real “studio”.
My guess is that the darker feel came in to the music through cabin fever and the organic, creepy, white noises that wood structures generate insesently. The album, titled Swing Lo Magellan, is rumored for a 9/10 release from Domino Records and the mystery surrounding the recording process, paired with ”Gun Has No Trigger”, have me really looking forward to streaming the whole thing.
