monarchy

The new demo from Monarchy is impressive to say the least.  The London duo are bringing some flare to some soft electro jams.  The track starts off slow until the melodies break into one another, from there it simply takes off.  I’m digging every second of it.  It’s hard to throw out a comparison for you because there’s many different elements to it.  A great mood track to carry you throughout the night.  Brilliant.  I wish I had a label so I could attempt to sign these guys.

Monarchy – Gold In The Fire (Demo)

russ chimes

Russ Chimes is a pretty sure thing when it comes to providing gold for the dance floor.  His latest remix comes from LA Nights, which is now available on itunes.  It’s the typical smash from Chimes who never ever seems to disappoint.  Myspace is a good place to catch more bangers.

Fabian – Heatwave (Russ Chimes Remix)

chromeo

I’m sure by now you’ve all caught the new single Night by Night from Chromeo released a few weeks back.  All the remixes have came and gone and for now, I found one that really leaves a punch.  Skream’s remix just barely edged out the new version from DJ Anonymous.  The laidback take does wonders to compliment the pop-based lead vocals from Dave 1.  But I still love the funky rework Anonymous does.  Anyway I included both, if you feel like sharing post your fav.  If you don’t have the original electric avenue has it for you here.

Alan Braxe is one of the few individuals who can reproduce mainstream music into listening gold.  Not that teeny boppers don’t have an ear for great music….”To the window! To the wall!” haha; I’m just saying that Braxe definitely knows how to turn it up a notch and it doesn’t matter what piece of music you start him out with.  The newest remix to hit us last week was Broken-Hearted Girl.  Fantastic Dub remix, but there’s a slow and bothersome Radio Edit out there… so don’t get confused.  The ‘right’ version is listed below.

The interview above is crazy fascinating and Too Many Sebastians led me to it so thanks for that.

End of an Era

Posted in Dance, Disco, Disco House, Electro, House, Indie with tags , , , , on August 31, 2009 by erger

I’m not entirely sure if this has ever been mentioned on this blog before, but it all started with three friends and a party. That party just happened to go down where two of the three contributors to this blog live, the address: 317  Dope (as fuck) street. The house or the apartment is really not the point at all, it was always  what music we happened to be diggin’ on at the time, like what tracks would you want your homies (ladies and gents) to get their freak on to.

The blog is just getting started so that’s not going anywhere, but the “unofficial” 317 (I call it that b/c while being home for me, the place was a fucking dump and anyone who came and partied at our crib can testify), is coming to an end.

As sad and disruptive as change can sometimes be perceived as – we all know deep down that when you strip all the b/s away the situation isn’t really good or bad, it only “is” whatever you fuckin’ make it!

So, sorry for the shitty philosophizing and the banter, as usual, but It was personal – for myself and this house – call it a selfish moment. And don’t worry, its not all to get myself read, rather, its to get these tracks heard. So please, from all of us at 317, whether you’re just tuning in or you’ve been keeping us on rotation for a minute – we fucking love you, and we promise things will only get better.

Now, to get down to fucking business already, Keenhouse, who is down with Valerie, is really rad. The one Loose Shus track has been floating around for a couple months and the other tracks below are all new I think, not that it matters b/c I have been throwing one-man dance parties all evening to these tracks and besides their fifteen out of ten funk rating, there is really not much else to be said.

Well there is more to be honest, Fabian, who I really don’t know much about, has remixed Keenhouse‘s Civic Transit and not only does he kill it but if you check his myspace page, you may just find a gnarly remix to a Fred Falke track, but I’ll let you call my bluff on that one.

And last but surely not least, LA Disco House just took another step up with the arrival of Human Life (no pun intended) and their style is poppy lyrics, melodic and catchy synth hooks with some splashes of dark/deep bass. This one just popped up on my radar as well so not much else is known, except according to their myspace they are supposed to be playing two shows with Alan Braxe – well, fuck me!

Human Life – To Forever

Peace and Love (and see you in Hamiltron)!!
