Two weeks, listened to it all. Here’s what you can’t be missing: A lovely Brooklyn-themed slow house jam by SirOJ. Comes with a video by Leontien Prenger. The vocal cuts are taken from ‘Til I Met Thee’ by Cody Chesnutt. You know, this guy.
Getting in to some Different Marks too. It’s a collaboration project: German/Polish dj/prod duo Catz’n'Dogz together with UK producer Martin Dawson, who tragically passed away in November last year. Right before that time, Different Marks had just finished their album ‘Untitled’. CnD’s Pets Recording is sharing the album for free and it holds some really brilliant tracks. Below is ‘Shiny Pennies’, track 1 of the album with vocals by Cari Golden. Get the full album here.
Putting in a break here. Only every idiot born since 1992 seems to know how to finish the sentence. Way back in 1992 Haddaway treated the world with his superclassic ‘What Is Love’. Baby don’t hurt me. No More.
So we dug up two nice acoustic songs in the past days. And one is a track by Jaymes Young, who performs a darker version of Haddaway’s ‘What Is Love‘. Quite surprising to hear it like this, but it’s pleasant.
Just one more then. Maria Tom and Sanjeev T. are serving up a cover on Daft Punk’s ‘Something About Us’ straight from Bangalore. Doesn’t even make it to three minutes, but sounds great.
But that’s enough acoustic stuff. Future Screens is a band of four from Brooklyn with a new track out just over a week ago. That track is called ‘Outta Sight’, an impressive pop track packed with catchy synth and neo-eighties nostalgia. Eagerly awaiting their next release.
Pretty much the above recipe, minus the drummer: Just add house loops. Swedish producer Tobtok remixes Brooklyn’s Foxe Basin. ‘Seize The Night’ sounds great, Indie band meets French house.
Completely Irrelevant Intermezzo.
Listened to this, instantly sure it was something whipped up by a Brit. Positive. Tom Bull and JT reworked Mary J. Blidge’s ‘Family Affair’ and dubbed the new remix ‘Holleration’. Sounds crisp, will definitely be in one of the mixtapes.
Bit Funk also delivered another beauty last week, a remix on ‘Drones’ by Night Drive. The track is free, available on Night Drive’s Facebook page. Like to download. You’ll get both the original version and the Bit Funk remix.
Flume and some more Flume. Kaytranada did a pretty effing great edit on Flume’s ‘Holdin’ On’, which was in one of his Boiler Room sets earlier. Last week it finally emerged on several blogs, some of which are still hosting a download link.
Flume himself also did one. Rustie’s ‘Slasherr’ is one big recording by itself. Flume ads some subtle changes, re-ups it for the fans. Delightful.
Slightly more relevant intermezzo. Got a few pop tracks up ahead.
RAC remixes Gentlemen Hall’s ‘Sail Into The Sun’. Which is nice. Same song, some different instruments. Doesn’t really innovate that much to be honest. Still, solid.
And pretty much in that same corner we find Lincoln Jesser. Pop/synth/funk track titled ‘What You Came For’. Smooth pop music that grows on you after a few listens.
Out with a bang. Today’s last track (Before the honorable mentions) is the remix TC did on Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’. Undoubtedly, floods of Daft Punk remixes will follow, even by Daft Punk themselves. In the meanwhile, this remix should keep you well awake.
