In the last few days of August it’s time to fit in as many pool parties, park smoking seshes, and BBQs as possible. I don’t know about you guys but I sure as hell am going to miss Summer, all of the freedom and good times that comes with it, the warm weather, and specific to this summer, all of the amazing music that has been released. Well Summer ’11 is not over yet, and I’ve posted this new track by Sam Padrul to help remind everyone out there that there’s still time to throw one last dance party – just make sure you include this song in your playlist. So funky and fresh you’ll be craving more. Enjoy.
I first heard of Shook when my buddy sent me his remix to M.I.A’s “Internet Connection” a few months back. For a solid month I had to listen to that song everyday – was addicted. The exact same excitement I felt when I heard his first track sparked up in me today. This remix to Fallulah’s “I Lay My Head” sends chills running down my spine – there’s absolutely no way to avoid getting sucked into that funky nu disco sound Shook has mastered that just moves your body naturally. Shook has an unbelievable talent that needs to be shared with the world, so you can start by liking him on Facebook and spreading the good word. Mark my words, this kid’s headed for the top.
In case you haven’t heard this yet –
After a long week of Music Festivals and clubbing in Belgium and Germany, this remix is exactly what I want and need to hear – just that perfectly soothing summer nu disco sound to relax and heal my bruises and battered brain. I’m especially critical of Futurecop! remixes since the English duo is one of my favorite artists, but NewYorkAC does “Starworshipper” more than justice. NewYorkAC manages to mellow this track out from the original, giving it that ideal blend to jam out to on a nice summer Sunday evening and get you excited for next weekend. Funny thing about NewYorkAC though is that producing is just a side hobby for him. Based in Los Angeles, NewYorkAC is actually a visual effects artist. With that much skill this guy could do some serious damage to the EDM world.
P.S – listen to this track on sick headphones or speakers for full effect
Today friends we’re going to be putting two of my favorite remixes head to head, and this time I really need all of your guys help because I am just way too torn between which one is the best. The contenders are Moonlight Matters and Plastic Plates who have both produced amazing remixes with super creative elements. Before you decide though let me break down each remix individually so you can have the full story –
Hailing from Belgium, Moonlight Matters has perfected that funky bass slap that defines his sound. In this remix he allows Adele’s beautiful voice to stretch throughout her verses, but when it’s time for the chorus to kick in you can be sure as hell Moonlight Matters is going to rock the track with that heavy funky bass accompanied by what I’d call the perfect percussion. Can’t forget those gorgeous orchestra strings Moonlight Matters throws in there. Amazing remix.
Here at VelectroRaptor we actually just posted Plastic Plates for the first time yesterday. I know we’re lagging, because this Australian native electronic producer has one of the most bumping and catchy nu disco sounds I have ever heard and constantly crave more. In his remix, Plastic Plates approaches the song with a slower BPM than Moonlight Matters, which I have to say makes the song. I guarantee you bump this song on good speakers or headphones, there’s no way you’ll be able to sit still. When I saw Aeroplane this past Saturday I heard this remix in his hour and a half set and was absolutely dumbfounded.
First heard this track in Aeroplane’s June Mix and was immediately hooked. Then I went further and did some research into Plastic Plates so I could learn more about that funky/nu disco sound that I have become obsessed with. Originally from Sydney, Australia, Felix Bloxsom (Plastic Plates) now resides in Los Angeles, California where he mixes up his tasty sound, while also opening for DJs such as Nero. This remix to Human League’s “Sky” has no doubt become one of my favorite summer jams and works perfectly for a pool party or any other summer activity. Make sure to show Plastic Plates as well as VelectroRaptor some love on Facebook.
What a perfect set of Funky House and Nu Disco music to play in my favorite city in the U.S (NYC is obviously a very close second). I wish I could’ve been at Temple when Treasure Fingers was blasting this 72 minutes of pure ecstasy, but hey there’s always next time. Now in the next few weeks Treasure Fingers will be bringing his talent to San Diego, Kansas City, and Portland, so if you’re in the area I would highly recommend attending. If the idea of seeing the man himself live isn’t enough to convince you then download this mix, listen and be amazed.
