FM Attack were introduced to me last week and impressed me a lot.  With a very new wave/exploratory disco-house feel to them, the Vancouver natives recently released their debut album on itunes entitled, Dreamatic.  The album does not stray too far from what you’re getting below in Sleepless Nights.  An original melodic instrumental that is captivating throughout.  Worth the download and the album is definitely worth the purchase. Check it out.

Louis La Roche caught my attention this week with a banger remix to Don Diablo‘s, I Am Not From France.  The track is Diablo’s newest preview, remixed of course, to his new single off the forthcoming album expected to release around October this year.  The remix is extraordinary.  Catchy and heavy synth breakdowns with sporadic transitions keep things fresh.  Look forward to the Diablo release later this year.

Our friend Andy Webb over at discodelicious has been posting some great music recently.  One of the most notable tracks that grabbed my attention was the lengthy electro-instrumental produced by Downtown Party Network, which Webb himself, was hesitant to post.  Heart Break Dancing isn’t anything special but it offers a venture through slower melodic music that doesn’t break from it’s rhythm or spice things up.  Possibly being the only drawback, the track cashes in hard on it’s great production and catchy yet simple-sounding chords, ultimately creating a trance effect of soft electro-pop goodness.

What Happened?

Last week was pretty trying for 317. Speaking for myself, I had major computer problems that forced some of my prized computer possessions to be deleted. One of my most prized losses was my beloved itunes play count. Who knew a seemingly pointless stat would create such an emotional loss and have a small impact on my life. Not only was it an interesting to view who was played the most in the recent and past few weeks on my computer, but it also proved to be a valuable sorting tool once i had committed a few hundred hours of streaming music through itunes over the past two years. Luckily I was able to save the music I cared about and the documents that were important. But still… may my old itunes play count r.i.p.

Another problem we had came to us through mediafire- our database for hosting music. I apologize to anyone who felt the effects we did, obviously it still has some bugs that need to be sorted out. However, it’s still not worth switching providers. Mediafire offers an extensive free program with an interface that is easy for users. Files shared with through other providers like zshare sometimes disable links over time to continue fast service. This makes it very hard to develop any form of archive of MP3s for people to download. Therefore, we will continue to keep using mediafire until a better option surfaces. Any link that is experiencing problems through mediashare we will try to correct using another free source such as zshare.

Hopefully all the problems are behind us so we can move on.

That being said, I’m still behind in catching up among the activity sweeping the blogosphere. So this next track comes straight from the personal stash I was able to save from the shitstorm that swept my computer. Don Diablo has left mixed impressions on me in the past. Here he hits me full on. I’m in love with the acoustic guitar and the arrangement. Damn this sounds good..

Over the last week, our technical difficulties with blogger, mediafire, and the backup on my computer ended with the loss of a post entitled, Keep On Walking Grandma (Apr 24.09). Since the blog backup crashed so did the ability to retrieve the post. No big deal, but these tracks still deserve recognition. Unfortunately I had to kill the write-ups but here goes, second-time around, a random selection of great stuff all worthy of checking out.
