Johnny Stimson – “SO. GOOD.” (Caleb L’Etoile Remix)

I know I already posted a “So. Good.” remix but when this Caleb L’Etoile jam came along I had to give it some love too. Slinky, sexy, and with just the right touch of horns to do Johnny justice.

[PREMIERE-MP3] Christopher Norman – “Cult Logic” (Miike Snow Cover)

[soundcloud id=’137821427′]

When I was compiling the list of top songs from the last five years of this music site I knew Miike Snow had to be on it. But anyone alive in 2009 hear their fair share of “Animal” covers & remixes already. Plus, it was “Cult Logic” that always had my top vote on that album. But who would cover it? Who would step up and do this jam justice!? Well, the one and only Christopher Norman, thats who. Christopher continually flies under too many radars as I post jam after jam of his here on TBE. Let hope this awesome cover grabs some more ears leading up to his debut album. It certainly made my day.

Johnny Stimson – “So Good” (Fare Soldi Rmx)

[soundcloud id=’136847699′]

Italy’s Fare Soldi are the kings of sexy disco remixes and they have done it again with Textas’ Johnny Stimson’s latest slow burner “So Good”. This international team should just quit flirting and do a whole EP together!

Sphynx – “Hunger” & “What Is Love” (Haddaway Cover)

It’s been a while since I’ve covered Austin’s awesome dance party instigators Sphynx. The guys are back with “Hunger”, a soulful groover for dance floor lovemaking. Couple it with their recent cover of Haddaway’s “What Is Love?” and things are going to heat up! Get into that talk box!

In other hilarious news, Feb 13 is being proclaimed ‘Sphynx Day’ in Austin by Mayor Lee Leffingwell and the band be celebrating the day with a televised performance at City Hall. Yes! Then after that their new album Golden Garden will be coming out. Better make it a whole Sphynx month!

SPEAK – “Be Reasonable, Diane”

[soundcloud id=’132272084′]

TBE Homies Speak just announced a tour with RAC so you know half the country just checked their calendars (don’t be in the wrong half!). To celebrate they released a new jam “Be Reasonable, Diane” and it couldn’t be sweeter. These guys from Austin craft some of the finest soulful yet party worthy tracks around. First a killer Los Angeles residency at The Bootleg and now this? 2014 is going to a be big year for Speak.

The Burning Ear Presents: Speak @ Bootleg Bar 1/26/14

I’m pretty damn excited to present Austin’s Speak tomorrow night at Bootleg Bar. Tomorrow is night 2 of a 3 night Sunday residency. I can’t think of a better way to wind down a weekend then to the beautiful sounds of their newest jam (and TBE fave) “Peaks”. Dive into the original and a couple great remixes below and then come out and hang tomorrow night!

Johnny Stimson – “Daddy’s Money”

Johnny Stimson - DADDY'S MONEY

Austin’s Johnny Stimson is back with a funky new jam and some great album art. Nobody like a girl with Daddy’s money, but everyone should like “Daddy’s Money” if you know what I mean. Can we get a Stimson/Chromeo collaboration soon?

[MP3] Night Drive – “Sea Of Light” + “Drones”

Night Drive - Sea of Light

Austin’s Night Drive know their way around a sparkling summer dance jam. They have remixed some great tracks and now they serve up this fantastic original piece. An ode to the city that hosts the best indie-dance party around. Cheers to Barbarella!
