Colleagues – Tears

Sweden’s (relatively) new five-piece band Colleagues recently posted this sweet little piece of pop goodness on their soundcloud, and it’s hard not to listen over and over. Go ahead and let yourself bask those layers of colorful synths and silky smooth vocals. Perfect tune to put some extra spring in your step. I have a good feeling about what these Swedish Colleagues have in store for us. ‘Tears’ isn’t for sale until April 14th, but in the meantime you can stream your heart out below.

Jensen Sportag – One Lane Lovers

This new track from Jensen Sportag is great – funky and dreamy, playful and badass at the same time.  It’s been almost two years since they released the ‘Pure Wet EP’,  and ‘One Lane Lovers’ may be better than anything the Nashville duo has put forth yet. This song comes out April 8th on Cascine, and it’s definitely one worth picking up. Have a listen and let yourself be taken back to time when neon and aerobics dominated over washed out colors and yoga.

On Repeat : She Said Disco edition

Once again She Said Disco has selected some personal favorites, imported directly from his crates to our blog. Some you may know and hopefully some will be cherished discoveries…with no further delay. On Repeat: She Said Disco Edition //

 Paradis – Parfait tirage

Paradis, always a fav to me. I don’t know why they seems to be the only band who mix melodramatic french singing and techno. The two genres actually blend well. Go for a long walk in Paris streets for one night, you will understand why this sound is so effective.

Tinashe – Vulnerable (Gold fields remix)

Gold Fields know how to wrap a track into something sweet, they give this delicate touch to all of their remixes, it flows like water, I could listen to this forever.

FM Attack – Corazon

For everyone who loves Italo-disco and Synthpop and who didn’t know about this band (like me), well it is for you. Their LP “Deja  Vu” is a gem, a journey into a digital world made of shitty 3D and love.

VentureX- Never 2 young

Check out the first release from Stratford Court: Amicus Curiae, a compilation of 31 tracks from fresh disco cuts to slow boogie jams featuring secret disco lords such as Hemingway, Sloslylove, Flamingosis, etc… Hit the auto-repeat button, put your headphones, and go to the beach, now!

Toni Toni Lee – Girl I used to know (Shazam remix)

I think I play this song almost every time I dj, it’s sweet, dark and nostalgic. A perfect secret weapon and a perfect night anthem to make people dance under the rain (in slow motion).

Roosevelt – Small Hours

Hailing from Cologne, Roosevelt has taken John Martyn’s ‘Small Hours’ and turned it into four minutes of ambient bliss.  Similar to the 1977 original, this is one of those songs that just takes you away to another place, a world away from the stresses of everyday life. I picture myself floating on a warm lake somewhere in middle America when I listen to this — no traffic, sirens, loud construction, helicopters… no distractions whatsoever. Beautiful song that really just washes over you. Keep an eye on Roosevelt, and take a listen to his ‘Elliot EP’ if you haven’t yet.

Blondie – Rapture (Luxxury Edit)

Luxxury does it again with a spot-on edit of the Blondie classic. There’s really nothing to not love about this re-imagination of the 80s hit. Probably my favorite so far out of the ongoing series… but I mean shit, they’ve all been pretty great. The build up and then drop-in at 1:34, putting the bass front and center is just sooooo smoooooth – easily one of my favorite song moments in the last month or so. Plus, the re-arrangement on that classic Debbie Harry vocal is a thing of beauty. Good thing about being a little behind on posting this, is that there’s likely another sensational edit coming soon! In the meantime, kick back and hit repeat.

Panama – Strange Feeling

Panama have just consistently been delivering emotional tunes with infectious grooves. If that sounds too much like press release b.s just recognize and realize these guys are dope. One of my most anticipated artist to kick it with and see at SXSW. As if the rest of the EP  wasn’t enough this additional song just cements it. Sexy and thoughtful and all of that stuff I always go on and on about. I may just get these cats to sign me an autograph. That fresh. If you are not already up on their stuff, get acquainted. Beautiful music. Binary approves.

Falcon Punch – Smokey

Cosmic groove master Falcon Punch has delivered a strong dose of chill, balearic disco vibes with his beautiful new track “Smokey.” Six  minutes of funky bassline, congo drums, and sweeping Smokey Robinson vocals make this a perfect song for the pending spring sunshine. It’s up as a free download on his soundcloud, so put this funky tune in a playlist and let it take you away to a warmer place.
