Sept 22 already?  Time flies.  Posts are going to slow down a bit for me, but in turn get bigger. As I progress further into the semester, university tends to eat up the majority of my free time.  Compounded by homework, my job, and planning one hell of a dance party for next semester, time is rather limited.  Although we’ll still have weekly updates with lots of good noise for your ears.  Speaking of which, check out the following:

I stumbled across a funky electric treat from the Sydney based duo DCUP the other day.  The two really know how to create mesmerizing beats that mix genre and style to produce a unique original sound unmatched in the industry. The sax is brilliant. Funky, funky, funky!

Pablo Calamari – I Bought My Wife On The Black Market (DCUP Remix)

burns

I’m going to be one of the last blogs to cover this track but it is definitely THE disco-house track of the past week.  Fred Falke delivers again and with his synth flare’s and electric drops it’s hard not to want to keep this track on repeat.  More including this can be found off BURNS‘ new EP entitled Teknique and can be purchased off beatport.

BURNS – First Move (Fred Falke Remix)

lifelike

Missing summer already I turned to the Standing On The Shore remixes to bring a little bit of it back in my life.  The best by far came from Cassian and Lifelike.  Each are unique and bring something new to the table.  Lifelike takes the title literally and reconstructed an instrumental fitting for the shore.  Cassian returns this track to the dance floor.  Both are great for different moments and moods, all pending where you are and what you’re digging.

Empire Of The Sun – Standing On The Shore (Lifelike Remix)

Lifelike is a busy man.  Here’s another eclectic dreamy soundscape produced by the French man himself. Stellar stuff.

Lifelike – Discomachine

This next track is for all you heavier, aggressive junkies out there.  Generally this isn’t for me, but the powerful ups and down’s, crazy drum intro, along the Beetroots signature synth drop makes it very difficult to not want to throw yourself around wherever you are.  Dada Life and Alex Gopher… you make gooooooood music!

Mi Casa Su Casa: Spread Your Love

I’ll be honest, I’m really excited to share some new music with everybody, something I haven’t done for a while, although you may have heard some of these tracks before, they caught me by surprise and proved their weight in gold – the proof is in the pudding.

First up is a new producer from Stockholm, Sweden, lovely place I hear, anyways, Odahl has been tearing shit up for months now in the blog world, I came fuckin’ close to posting his remix to that Luther Vandros track Never 2 Much months back when it popped up on my radar. To say the least, I’m stoked I saved his 317 debut to open with these two remixes, they’re pretty rad – with a dash of funk (especially the first one).

Cut Copy – Far Away (Odahl Remix)

Empire of the Sun – Walking on a Dream (Odahl Remix)

And just to prove I keep watch even though I’ve been absent, the remix that I and hopefully everyone else has been waiting for to Pony Pony Run Run‘s Hey You, by PPRR themselves!

Its fresh, upbeat and generally fuckin’ awesome. The original is my personal all time top download and I’m stoked I waited for the best remix out there to share. Also in the news: PPRR’s new album dropped recently so check their myspace and show some love, because lets be honest, these guys are fuckin’ dope.
