We’re always keen on supporting New York’s LEFTI who brings in today’s dose of disco house to Satchmode‘s dreamy pop single “Never Gonna Take You Back”. Filled with groovy synth leads and and a pumping kick, LEFTI adds a burst of energy to the original track and then some. He strategically infuses vocal cuts and sampling in all the right places bringing the track to a whole new level so if you’re in need of a mid week pick-me-up, you’re in the right place.

Okay, get on this if you haven’t yet. Zimmer is one of my favorite producers in the nu-disco arena. When he’s not touring and wooing the world with his horizontal disco sets he’s in the studio creating stellar original tracks. But here’s a special treat he shared with us last week – a remix of Gallant’s “Weight in Gold”. What an amazing touch he adds to the already beautiful track. Soothing yet moving; perfection in every way possible.

There’s something about Marvin Gaye’s vocals that can transform any production into ear candy. The minimalist vibe of this track showcases Marvin’s vocals while keeping the club feel with a four on the floor kick. The tune has gone pretty viral over the past couple of months with support from Pete Tong and Annie Mac and a recently released music video takes it even higher. We hope to hear more from the two producers, Micel Cleis and Klement Bonelli who prove their creative abilities with “Marvinello” and lets not forget about this music video - sexy dance party in a grocery store? Brilliant.

Saturday just gone, I headed to XOYO to see the final closing party of Bicep’s 13 week residency. The Irish boys absolutely nailed it as always with their signature mix of deep, tech and Chicago style house with a progressive and techno edge, but the last few tracks of their set they returned to their disco routes. As soon as this camp little 80′s boogie number came on, I was brimming with joy; admittedly not a track I knew myself, but thankfully my Dutch friend who I was with, who happens to be one of the original Trouw party crew, was well acquainted with the song and informed me it was a remix of Carmen – Time To Move (who needs shazam!) after a little googling, I discovered the remix was by Marcello Giordani and pays perfect homage to the 1984 Original.
After releases on Get Physical, Moon Harbour and Culprit, Forrest is back on 20/20 Vision this year with a new EP that showcases his capabilities as a vocalist and front man. A collaboration with Cristoph, the EP consists of two original tracks, 25 and Time, plus an instrumental of the title track.
25 is a collection of trippy textures that surround a deep kick drum, where haunting melodies and a deep sub bass build to a dramatic climax with Montreal’s finest’s soothing vocal tones. Time on the other hand, is a slightly more lush tune with dark melodies and arpeggios. Pumping drums drive the track on, with Forrest again laying his trademark vocals on top.
25 EP is out 28th September.
Swedish-based producer Anevo has released a remix of Selena Gomez’s Good For You that’s even sexier than the original (if that were possible!) This is the perfect tune to set the scene while dolling up on a Friday evening and looking forward to the night / weekend ahead. So perhaps set aside some time this week to pick out some new clothes and wear a stand-out colour. A touch of Lipstick never hurt either
Here’s a little something perfect to change up the groove mid-set and recapture a fading crowd: California / Florida based duo CULTR recently released this banging tune through The Dancing Pineapple and it has been simply addictive. With exciting synth progressions to immediately draw you in, the track flows effortlessly into an unexpectedly bouncy beat with vocals fading in and out into the “distance”. Listen closely also for those squeaky bed-string samples that will have you either blushing or smirking in no time.
