John Talabot – fin

9 Feb

Where the boundaries between Disco/House, Indie-Pop and Electronic music become fluid, comes John Talabot’s debut album for German dancefloor institution, Permanent Vacation. The Spanish native has followed a steady consistency since first appearing on the scene in 2009 with ‘My Old School’, followed by sought-after aces on Hivern Disc and Young Turks, his debut single “Matilda’s Dream” plus a stack of remixes for everyone from Teengirl Fantasy to The xx. His first LP, fin, is a distillation of his defined tastes, weaving nine tracks which could easily fit into any of the categories above, but essentially just do their own thing, very stylishly.

Have a listen to the two singles “So Will Be Now…” and “Destiny”, both featuring Madrid’s producer/singer Pional:

If you like it, I suggest the download of his latest mix for FACT magazine, with an atmospherically fluid and disco-kissed vibe here.

Friendly Fires – Hurting (Benoit & Sergio remix)

16 Sep

It is time for BS: Benoit and Sergio – who gave these letters, when put together, a whole different perspective. They’re my new favourite thing in the world other than cheese bread, and this remix is simply enlightening, adding an unnusual disco-ish feeling to Friendly Fires’ great track.

Cassius – The Sound of Violence (remixes)

23 Aug

Featuring the album Au Rêve, “The Sound of Violence” was first released in 2002 by french duo Cassius, also known by the monikas Philipe Zdar and Boom Bass. Claiming to have made over 400 remixes, the track is one of their singles to reach number one in the United States dance charts and one of those songs you get stuck in your head for a while once you hear it, combining early 00’s electropop elements to Cassius’ black music influences.

As the retromania grows amongst us, the series of remixes gets full attention on beatport and asured place in yours truly, the pitchpie selection. The song’s original remake and the eclectic pack of remixes go from Fedde LeGrand to Luciano, also featuring reggae and dubstep mixes. You can download the whole thing by clicking right here.

Introducing: Daniel Lucas

6 Apr

I’m really proud to say these tracks were made by a brazilian producer. Daniel Lucas lives in Rio de Janeiro and started producing before Djing, while playing in a rock band as a late teenager.

Keeping up with tendencies from around the globe and adding proper brazilian soul and funk influences, also quite local elements like flutes, trumpets, drums and guitars to his productions, the result couldn’t be better.

So enough with the chatting. Introducing: Daniel Lucas.

clap, clap!

Amazing new mix from Future Disco label, ‘Neon Nights’ is the fourth release in the esteemed series, featuring remixes from Hot Chip, Holy Ghost, Greg Wilson, Soul Clap, The Revenge and more. Compiler Sean Brosnan has upped the tempo slightly and delved back to the late 80’s and early 90’s for inspiration. The result is a volume that is being hailed as the best in the series so far.

This edition is available as an exclusive 2 x CD set (mixed and unmixed discs).

Have fun:
