Remix Roundup Vol. 70 – Approx Feb 2013

100-bolt-paddedYup, another “better late than never” roundup coming at you straight from arctic February. But turn that frown upside down because it is Friday and you have the tunes to do the night justice. With warmer weather comes looser limbs. Move them.

[EP] Newtimers – EGO EP (w/ “Heavy Weather”)

Newtimers EP

we loved and we laughed, thought we would last

It’s been a year since we heard from Sweden’s sneaky sex-groove masters Newtimers so it’s about time we got some more magic. The Ego EP just dropped and if you and yours need some heat during these frosty times then throw these jams on the fire. It’s like Prince, only relevant. Like The Weeknd, only  less depressing. Like sex itself, only less complicated. Even breakup songs like “Heavy Weather” are bound to inspire one last hurrah. Oh, and we get a dance-off video cut to “She’s A Gun”? Sexy women. Sexy outfits. Sexy dancing. The band can even be in it. In the background.

[MP3] Newtimers – “January Love”

crossing enemy lines, what was home is no more

♫ Newtimers – January Love

  • Who: Andreas Cavaco & Tim Lundblad
  • What: Electro soul, kinda like Inc., Holy Ghost, Chromeo
  • Where: Stockholm, Sweden + Facebook / Soundcloud / Amazon
  • When: LP Ego is coming
  • Why: Since Newtimers last (and 1st) song, They have got some good graphic design going on their album art as well as lay down a smooth buttered second song that brings more of that piano soul to their electronic vibes. “January Love” is obviously well timed to help keep a world of couples stay warm during these winter nights. And the rest of us just get to look forward to more from these guys.

[MP3] Newtimers – “Falling”

we might go long, we might end up in a world of our own

♫ Newtimers – Falling

Swedish Sex Sounds! Yes! Newtimers are a duo from Stockholm who have produced a whole album already but decided to shelve it for a while and instead focus on a looser approach to their perfectionist ways. “Falling” is the first product of that experiment, and subsequently the first Newtimers track to grace the public. I’ll let them explain it for those of you stupidly not listening already:

“Falling” is a sexy, swinging, messy, electronic track pop-track with edgy vocals with an rnb-twist. Make those walls shake with this one, pre-party, after-party, party of one and party of two, three, fou…yeah, i know you get where i’m going with this.

People with this track on their weekend seduction playlist: 1. People without it: 0. So arm yourselves accordingly, people. In the meantime I will try to mine some more gold from this Swedish treasure chest!
