The Derevolutions kicked down the door to my brain with their amazing Danny Brown remix and I immediately assumed they were well known pros that I was late to the game on. I was wrong! There is a Soundcloud with criminally few plays and followers. And this song. This raucous, spastic, dance funk soul jam that takes a maximalist approach to getting your body twitching. I cant stop playing it and I can’t stop smiling. Cheers to these guys taking Javelin’s place as kings of spazzy dance music!
The man in that album art looks like he wouldn’t be mad if you didn’t dance to Mirror Talk’s music…. he would just be disappointed. The Los Angeles band’s debut 3 song EP takes body moving beats and rhythms very seriously. These are big songs for dark rooms, built for turning up the volume and the heat. Listening to these jams on repeat I’m really struggling to find a favorite. I thought it was “Too Late To Start” but then I heard the second rack… and then the third. I love the emotion he lays out in all his vocals. This is what Hurts should be sounding like today! There is real texture here.
Catch them live on Friday Nov 8th at Space 15 Twenty in Hollywood! No wallflowers allowed!
OOooh, yeah. This is the kind of beautiful, sensual, groovy, sexy ass shit we live for over here! Remix Artist Collective’s very own Karl Kling is getting down by his bad self on this remix and perhaps even showing up Andre!? Dunno.. Bold claims perhaps…
I am more then proud to invite you all to a special DJ night with sets from myself, Story Of The Running Wolf, and (Baron Von) Luxxury. Getting so many TBE favs under one roof was made possible with the help of Gigit (an awesome new platform for booking bands) who teamed up with me tonight.
SweatHeart is the name of the party (Started by TBE, of course!) and Short Stop is the name of the place! Get warmed up with the tunes below and [click for more!]
I stumbled on this one yesterday thanks to Soundcloud and even though I’m 6 months late and a million plays late I still had to share. Waves is just a damn smooth and beautiful piece of music. The right amount of vocal soul to offset the drum machines. I want more like this.
2013 has been a big year for both Goldroom and Night Drive! Lucky us that we keep getting great tracks from both! I’m really loving the way Night Drive smoothed out “Embrace” into a jam I may not have even recognized. So smooth.
The 1975 have already released one of my favorite albums of the year so anything else is just icing on the cake. First it was the tongue in cheek video for “Girls” (below) and now this funked up remix by TBE faves The Knocks. Nice to see the boys from Manchester having some fun with all this fame.
Apologies for the radio silence over the weekend, I was in beautiful Baltimore for the wedding of two dear friends. In their honor I will be posting some fun ass dance songs now. The first is this new jam from Finland’s Lenno which you can download free for the rest of the day. It sounds a lot like that tiger… if that tiger was driving a convertible in an 1980′s video game. Boss.
Let’s also not miss the track Lenno did with TBE fave Zak Waters.
Bit Funk has been on a roll lately so we are pumped to share another fine remix of his. This time he forgoes current electronic trends for a throwback hip hop jam. Its a minimal affair but the result is so damn nice. A wise move to let the vocals shine here.
