Happy New Year everyone! Here’s a fresh remix of an 80’s tune to carry you over to 2013. Yezzir.

The Smiths – This Charming Man (Luis Leon Bootleg)

AIMES is the production moniker and musical alter ego of Alabama born, Brooklyn resident, Aman Ellis. His music is psychedelic at heart, provoking hints of new-wave, italo, and cosmic disco. Lush synths and washed out vocals juxtapose big kicks and silky bass lines. The self-dubbed “Space Pop” explores vast sonic territories, keeping a close affinity to other-worldly psychedelia and interstellar weirdness. The music is exciting and current, while still keeping a firm grasp on nostalgia.

Fresh off the back of their debit ep on OFF Recordings, LEFTWING & KODY touch down on ALiVE for a scorching hot EP. ‘Get Down’ is a power bruiser of a track, all muscular drums, big drops and heavy b-lines. The subtler but no less effective ‘Let Go’ follows, a skippy rhythm underpinning the duos tight production skills. ‘Tough Jam’ harnesses the flavour of London’s pirate radio in the 90’s; jacked up drums, head noddin’ bass and attention to deal that will set the floor alight. Rounding off, ‘I Need You’ settles into a sweet groove with cut up vocals to give the package a more melodic send off.

We’ll see how long this stays up. “Stimulation” is a new track from Maceo Plex’s new EP ‘Space Junk.’

Never failing to deliver, theSpace Junk EP is another slice of dance floor magic, Maceo Plex style. “Stimulation takes a deeper and harder turn for the late night ravers. Still noticeably a Maceo track, it adopts a big room driving sound with a thumping bass followed with intricate pacey percussions. Siren haunts fall into the vortex of sonic sounds, echoing and all encompassing for that dance floor effect, with warm synths flowing through the beautiful yet eerie layers.”

Who cares if it’s winter. Bring me back to the sunshine please. I’ve been freezing ever since I returned to the states and that’s in the mild climate of San Francisco. Above is a pic I snapped in Thailand. Since there’s no way to get back there, I’ll have to settle for a mental return trip which helps with this track here from Cajoline.

Cajoline, from Paris, is new to the scene. This is their first released track. If this is what we have in store I see a bright future for Cajoline. This certainly reminds me musically of Perseus or Monitor 66. Enjoy!

Betoko – Not Alone Feat. Maurice Marshall (Climbers Grey Sky Remix)

Here’s a fresh remix from the Climbers of a Betoko track. I’m just getting back in the swing of thing here in the states so I should be updating the music regularly from here on out. Happy Holidays!
