Cyril Hahn & Javeon – Breaking

Posted in Uncategorized by on Mar 24, 2014

If you were to take a look at the Triple J Mix that Cyril did, you might not guess he would be involved in a record like this. But, that’s the beauty of this guy, he’s well versed in a slew of genres. With this song, we are met with a very lively bassline and some Disclosureesque synth work. The vocal throughout the record, done by Javeon, gives us a smooth R&B vibe. Don’t...

Darius – Romance EP

Posted in Features Tracks by on Mar 8, 2014

It was hard to not fall in love with Darius‘s ”Romance” EP the second we listened to it. If you can imagine a smooth blend between french house, R&B, deep house, disco, and nu-disco/indie dance, this is what you would get.  Having some resemblances to Detroit Swindle, Moon Boots, and even a bit of Cherokee splashed in there, this is nothing but eclectic and symmetrical all...

GRUM, AMTRAC, LANE 8 @ Le Poisson Rouge NY (8.10.2013)

Posted in Events by on Aug 10, 2013

Our excellent buddies at Powerslug are throwing a lovely little get together in NY at Le Poisson Rouge on Bleecker St. Last time I saw Amtrac was at Detroit Movement festival when he took over after some guy’s dubstep set. That was the first and likely only time I’ll ever see people go from dancing to dubstep immediately into dancing to house and deep house. An amazing feat,...

FKJ – Jet Jam Mixtape #3

Posted in Playlists by on Jul 1, 2013

Someone we’ve noticed bringing a different kind of energy to the dance scene. Overseas, in Paris to be precise, French Kiwi Juice has been innovating his way into a few more bookings and acclaim these days. He’s been featured a few times in the past on our site, and we’ve described him before as a disco knight. It’s surprisingly refreshing to listen to a young producer...

Download // EMERON & FOX – Arms Out

Posted in Tracks by on Jun 27, 2013

In the midst of a hectic, fast-paced summer, I cherish the moments and the music that helps slow things down a bit. Our NYC buddies Emeron & Fox prepared a nice breakbeat, orchestral jam. Hollow synths along with Bit‘s vocal slices set an eerie tone to start the track, while we wind through a series of horns (reminiscent of the late 90s ska revival?) that aid in building up quit the...

Monitor 66 Announce Sophomore EP Release on House of Disco

Posted in Tracks by on Jun 26, 2013

Plenty has changed for Monitor 66 since we interviewed them last fall. They have slimmed down to two members (Calle has began pursuing a new alias), leaving Hannes & Hannes as the providers behind their new sound. We all first heard Monitor 66 with their iconic “Triscuits” track just a short 13 months ago and, in previewing their new EP (above), it’s safe to say they...
