I have been pretty busy this week with the latest release on NDYD Records but I couldn’t resist to make you aware of five tracks that are currently on my playlist. They are simply too good to pass on.
Let’s start with this beautiful video made for Douze’s latest single that features the smooth voice of my friend Magnus of moodblanc.
Some excellent surfing and chilling at a beach in Los Angeles do work well with the laid-back sound of Douze, who has been constantly been producing outstanding tracks in the last decade and has been one of my early favorite producers during the French House-period.
Meanwhile in Perth, the Australian disco squatting-sensation and close ally Casual Connection is now expanding his production-skills towards official remixes under his disco-moniker and his take on ‘Close To Me’ is reminding me of the production of French-legend Fred Falke. A remix you would usually expect to hear when shopping in a boutique or at the beach club during the day while sipping on a daiquiri in a lounge-chair.
Yes, you might read this blog while you are attending the ADE in Amsterdam. If you are in fact there, make sure to drop by ‘ADE Brunch bij Tosti Creative‘ on Sunday since Free Hugs is spinning some nice disco over there and is as well behind the edit of ‘ Letta Mbulu – Hamba Nam We’ below which is absolutely gorgeous. Did I mention it comes for free? Grab it while it lasts!
Manchester-based remixer Nine Lives is back with another master-piece, this time taking on Marvin Gaye’s classic ‘Sexual Healing’ to morph it into a danceable deep-disco floor-filler. Not the first time he lays hands on an already famous 70’s and 80’s track. Make sure you are checking his whole soundcloud-catalogue for some of the finest reworks that the streaming-platform has to offer.
Shane Kingsbury, better known as Buried King from Sydney, had the honour to remix Colour Castle & Doorly’s track ‘Stay Hungry’ to transform it from a club-house banger into a standout tune within the disco-genre. The track has been officially recognised and praised by the original creators and I bet you are going to dig it as well.
Please check back next week for more straight-up disco and r&b blogging.
