The Outrunners have recently released two dynamite tracks in Runaways and the remix to Codebreakers’ Follow Me.  You can preview both tracks here on their myspace.  Each are stellar and showcase some of the raw talent the ‘runners have seized using the the synthesizer and other boards.   The tracks below show some of this exceptional talent including the new single.  Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

The Outrunners – Runaways

The Outrunners – These Girls Are Dressed To Kill

The Outrunners – Cold Feeling (Anoraak Remix)

Alternative Reality – Get Away (The Outrunners Remix)

10% rap, 24% house, 10% cheese, 12% hand claps, 2% cheap perfume, 8% golden oldies, 8% Miami, 6% sexy midget playing a keyboard, 12% stolen property, (and 8% fruity pop) adequately describes Bounce Camp who is Sampo Hanninen aka DJ Rolex.  The one man project has received a lot of attention over the track Big Dancing, which combines house electro vibes with some fruity pop vocals.  Other tracks feature the same sort of house backdrop but vocally things vary track-to-track.

Bounce Camp – Let You Go

Throw Your Funk in My Backyard

What the fuck is going on, hope everyone is doing well. I’m finally back again after a long hiatus and posting for the first time since our highly anticipated move to, but I am happy to say that I’m now employed and getting my shit together, kinda.


As I’m sure most of you have heard, Melbourne, Australia’s mad man Knightlife, who is down with cutter records (317 loves Cut Copy), has just dropped his new Ep and I was able to scoop this funky gem care of our blog roll. Pretty hype with a fresh disco vibe, say what? Say word.

Knightlife – Crusader (Radio Edit)

Next up is a remix by the Italian Broke One, another favourite of 317 who we did a post on way back in February, (which you can peep right here). This time around he gives his Italian disco flair to a Coal Stairs track, who hail from Montpellier in France. The result is an upbeat housed out banger that’s full of cuts, drops and a golden breakdown towards the end.

Coal Stairs – Fuji 111 (Broke One Remix)

Moving right along, from Helsinki Finland, and this one is a bit of a mouthful for me, but Hannulelauri put a super funky twist on fellow Fins Zebra and Snake‘s track the Colours. Disco is no stranger to the funk involved here, but overall a pretty mellow and hypnotic adventure.

Zebra and Snake – the Colours (Hannulelauri Remix)

To round things up, a remix to another dope group and fav. of 317, Sydney’s Sneaky Sound System, this time by Flight Facilities, who’s music is heard all the way from Trinidad and Tobago. Consequently, we get to enjoy a super funky disco jam that has a Lifelike or Fred Falke like baseline that envelopes the synth loops; dance floor madness.

Sneaky Sound System – 16 (Flight Facilities Remix)

Peace and Love.

Straight from the Strathcona Ruins

Alright, I have a lot to show off so I’m just going to get down to business. There’s a lot here so take your time with the write-ups or go straight to downloading. Everything below has been carefully combed through to bring you a variety of goodness.

The release of Little Boots‘s New In Town is on the horizon with her recently seeking publicity through a new music video and some great new mixes to the debut single. The Golden Filter took this track and stellarized it. I don’t care if I have to make up words to get the point across. Bottom line is its good, and since I also don’t need to introduce The Golden Filter, here’s the magic:

Little Boots – New In Town (The Golden Filter Remix)

Heads We Dance used Little Boots in their latest production as well. It’s bordering on the indie-pop side and splits from the electro scene. Not typically my cup of tea but its mad catchy and some of you may dig it.

Heads We Dance feat Little Boots – Work It Out

I stumbled across the production version of Van She‘s remix to Groove Armada’s Drop The Tough thanks to ohh crappp. We posted this track earlier under the Bacardi B-Live program release. B-Live also released an unbelievable remix by The Twelves to Groove Armada if you missed it. Van She’s version is still spectacular, and the new quality and slight variation from the version I previously knew, brought it back to a prominent position in my library.

Idiosyncracies by Kris Menace releases on May 15. However, I’ve been lucky enough to stumble across a few excellent tracks that will make an appearance on the 37 track, 3 CD album. Kris Menace is a phenom and his sound and history should speak for itself. These tracks are pretty gold. Get em while you can tho, DMCA may be after us for this- but until then…

Kris Menace – Lightning

Kris Menace – Affinity

N.A.S.A.‘s track Gifted was steadily going around the internet before Aston Shuffle touched it up. I didn’t like it before, but I like it now. Regardless, the genre mix-up by tossing in vibes from a bunch of contributors is impressive in itself.

N.A.S.A. feat Kanye West, Santogold, Lykke Li – Gifted (The Aston Shuffle Remix)

Calvin Harris had another new remix drop recently that is great. I may be a little biased loving most of the new stuff Harris is making but check this and tell me I’m wrong. It’s a little off from the stuff we recently recognize him by with but it still is a good mix all the way through. Always worth checking out.

Passion Pit – The Reeling (Calvin Harris Remix)

This next track borders between house and electro while having some haunting melodic vocals from Peaches. The mix is pretty sharp. Peaches is coming into some Canadian areas in the future if this hits the spot for you.

4Peaches – I Feel Cream

Stumbling across the internet recovering from a cold last week led me to a couple house beats I enjoyed so here’s a little taste of that action:

Rampage – Loving U Is Easy
Satoshi Tomiie – Glow (Spirit Catcher Remix)
Bad Boy Bill – Falling Anthem (Herves We Are A Disaster Remix)
Ed Solo – Age Of Dub (Sludge 001)

Just to end things off on a ligther and more positive note.  VEGA made a lot of noise the past week with their track No Reasons. It’s a great feel good track, perfect and fitting for the dance floor all summer long. They have a real disco vibe, some delightful groovin synth, and great hair. If you haven’t caught it already, we’re happy to introduce you to No Reasons.

VEGA – No Reasons

Back To The Grind

Next up we have one of the more familiar and popular faces on 317 resurfacing yet again. Golden Girls has had yet another dynamite rendition of Do The Criminal come out the past week that absolutely kills it. I’m still undecided with what remix speaks to me the most but the Tape Deck Bros. are contending for the top spot. This remix is disco’d out and guaranteed to have you moving. It’s money and a must have.

Golden Girls – Do The Criminal (Tape Deck Bros. Remix)


Nighty Max is 100% new to me. Asian Dan introduced me to this a couple days ago and I can’t seem to get enough. The man hailing from Barcelona creates a relatively simple yet infectious track in Flannel Tent. Through Max’s significant other Rebecca, it appears he has also became involved or has some ties to another project entitled YALL. This is just a little speculation but be prepared for some solid things to come from Spain.

The New Music: February, wk 5

New Music

What a great weekend! I celebrated everything and accomplished nothing. More weekends should sound like that. I’m exhausted, and keep occasionally glancing at my bed. It’s looking more and more comfortable by the minute. With that in mind, I’m going to keep this post relatively quick. I have one newb to introduce that surfaced within the last week or so that’s worth a peek. This is the new Treasure Finger’s remix to the Miike Snow track “Animal.”

Miike Snow – Animal (Treasure Fingers Remix)

The next three have all been released sporadically throughout the last year. Throughout my last few days of self-destruction has caused them to resurface on my computer. Therefore I feel like sharing. Check em out, I’m sure they are nothing new but hopefully they will bring back some awesome ’08 mems like they did for me.

Faker – This Heart Attack (Miami Horror Remix)

Shooting Stars – Bag Raiders (Vocal)

Miami Horror!

Benjamin Vanguarde, the 21 year-old writer/producer for Miami Horror, has made an incredible impact in the industry this past year. “Music is my life” says Vanguarde in an interview with 0hhcr4pp. “My music is all about creating lasing feeling for its listeners, I think of myself as a composer in which I can create something from anything I feel has a certain power, potential or emotion to it whether it is a chord progression/melody… etc played by me or not it is all about making something special and memorable.” With influences from Prince, Supertramp, Fleetwood Mac, and Abba, Miami Horrors provides an uplifting sound that screams retro 80’s vibe. Vanguarde delivers on his message, and his music. Songs such as “Make You Mine” and “Don’t Be On With Her” are so sick and should be checked out immediately! The Hype Machine will provide for a solid star

Embrace ft. Ladyhawke (Fred Falke & Miami Horror remix) – PNAU

And a proper dance floor banger, we had posted the instrumental version a couple days ago, but lets be honest with each other, have a listen and tell me the vocals don’t bring the noise, which is a great thing, seriously though, let me quote “on the dance floor is where I’ll provide/ shake our hips as we collide”… wow. Anyways, I digress, have a listen and judge for yourself, and if by chance you find yourself shivering with joy and dancing by yourself, find comfort in the fact that while at that moment you may by yourself but exactly the same emotions are being shared across digital borders. mad love.

Make You Mine – Miami Horror
