Only Takes

Another great weekend in the books. Tanlines crushed it this past Friday in SF  and we had great weather all weekend. The only thing missing was this summertime unicorn disco masterpiece released today by Viceroy.  The time around it’s an original track that’s been produced with WhiteNoize.

WhiteNoize consists of DJ and production team Chris Harnett and David Carvalho who make “electronic boogie music.” Seems like a natural fit with Viceroy especially since all of them are based here in San Francisco. Not only does this town attract world class talent, but it also has it as well.

I’ll be on the lookout for WhiteNoize from now on as I already plan to catch Viceroy the next chance I have. This track is available now on Traxsource: http://www.traxsource.com/index.php?act=search&ss=Only+Takes&sc=tracks

Also available on Itunes, Beatport, etc. May 7th.

Off My Mind

This is an an “oldie” in that it was released last year, but I felt it needed to be highlighted again. I had featured his most recent track not too long ago. This one is groovy, spacey, and just downright awesome. I’d give you the rundown on Moon Boots, but you HAVE to see what he wrote on his soundcloud:

“Moon Boots entered the world in the mid-1980s via Cape Canaveral. After years of service as the preferred footwear of celebrity astronauts (notably Tom Hanks), Moon Boots came to life during a classified experiment aboard the International Space Station. Little is known of what actually transpired aboard the shuttle, but in short, Moon Boots became a sentient creature, equipped with reason, intuition, and groove. Before long, he grew tired of working for the space-military-industrial complex and found solace in the soothing sounds of underground disco and R&B boogie records. He knew it was only of matter of time before he was hung up like so many boots before him. He abandoned the program and used his savings to build a music-production studio in an unnamed U.S. location, where he is currently working.”

Don’t Stop

LA based duo, Oliver, has not one, but two kick ass remixes released over the past day or two. The first one featured is a Foster The People remix. “Oh no not another FTP remix,” you may say to yourself. Please, please just tell yourself to be quiet because in typical Oliver fashion, they knock it out of the park.

I actually never liked this tune probably because it’s in some commercial.  Well I can officially say I do now so thank you Oliver. The second tune is a remix of a Punks Jump Up song. Another fabulous remix. Punks Jump Up also just remixed a tune by Rebeka that I wrote about over at TheUntzAndTheIndie.Go check it out after you listen to these two.

Gottfried Beyer, who was recently featured here with an amazing remix, has just released a fresh new original. From him:

“This is first original tonal music track I’ve done in over a year. It’s inspired by / a celebration of / my response to:

• PWM and Wavetable synthesis.
• Romance music of the late 1980s / early 1990s
• Harold Faltermeyer
• 1980s guitar music, in particular: Van Halen, Racer X, Cacophony, Satriani and Vai.
• Pat Benatar’s song Invincible and ……just her in genera”

Uhhh that’s awesome!

A nice peaceful track from Four Tet is made even more dreamy by the Denver based duo, Human Agency. Four Tet was recently added to the lineup of Dimension Festival which takes place in September. I can’t wait to be in Pula, Croatia as is let alone seeing Four Tet rip on an abandoned fort on the beach.

This is the first time I’ve heard of Human Agency. They have a really awesome sound that I recommend you go check out on their soundcloud or you can go download all their music for free here. It’s the perfect kind  of music to listen to on a long drive, late night, or when you’re flying through some clouds.

Day Dreams

An appropriate picture for a San Francisco based producer remixing a San Francisco based band. MyKill does an awesome job giving this indie band some nu disco flare.

“I simply run, simply run I don’t wanna stay
Found all my dreams while outside in the summer rain
Rain down in your town on your town where we can begin,
Count on my dreams like a dream ought to be followed yeah”
