Alright, so I’ve been holding onto these/debating whether or not to release them. I recorded them originally back in March, but they needed work. So I deleted everything, but school kept me too busy to really work on it. After finals, I was finally able to take this project back to the studio and make the necessary changes. Essentially, The Love Club was inspired by the myriad of nu disco and funk tracks I had been coming across all spring. I began putting together a set, but I also had several other gems that I wasn’t sure how to incorporate. So inevitably I ended up splitting things up into two sets and then everything fell into place. Ladies and dudes, I give you… The Love Club.
It’s your Two-fer Tuesday NYC special! JPatt and DJ B-Roc are back with another lively track to keep your finger tapping. As usual, these guys like to keep it light and fun. Their remix of NoNoNo‘s Pumpin Blood is no exception. They dropped some funky bass, twerky cymbals and stabbing synths over the repeating whistle and original vocals. Gorgeous and dance-fun! NoNoNo is currently on tour with Twenty One Pilots. Meanwhile, The Knocks are getting ready to hit Coachella!!
Just a heads up, I’m basically on break this week (even though I’m actually working more hours and still doing school work… so… yeah) so I’m taking a break from posting. But I am working on a couple of new mixes so definitely keep an ear out for that. Meanwhile, here’s a little something that I’ve never actually shared online but it is one of my all-time favorite mixes. Enjoy!
First of all…. Oops. I totally thought I had a post going up yesterday. Guess I totally spaced that one. I guess it’s a good thing Tuesdays are good for two-fers.
Ok, so this is a new edit Moullinex has done of one of “The Old and The Young” from Midlake‘s Antiphon album, out last year. Midlake is a folk-rock band out of Austin, Texas. I don’t know much about them, but I love the lyrics for the tracks I have heard. For example.. I used a remix of “Roscoe” to open one of my all-time favorite mixes, Eclectica. Moullinex is mainly Luis Clara Gomes, currently based in Munich but originally from Portugal. Most of the Moullinex tracks I come across are dancefloor friendly remixes of indie or pop tracks, but he definitely is able to stretch across genres. Moullinex Live is a three person band, including Luis Clara Gomes, Bruno Cardoso, and Miquel Vilhena. They are currently touring, about to hit SXSW (presumably Midlake will be there too!), and then coming to the Drunken Unicorn in Atlanta on March 18th.
Ok, so I honestly don’t know much about these guys, but I can tell you that Panama deliver beautiful melodies and dreamy soundscapes. They released their sophomore EP, Always back in January with a couple of remixes from Classixx and Wave Racer (a couple of my fave Aussie indie dance remixers/producers). Now they’ve followed up their latest tour with the release of this gorgeous new track. If you dig this, I highly suggest picking up their Always EP.
p.s. There’s a free download of their track “Destroyer” available just for liking their Facebook page
