machineheart – Circles (Touch Tone Remix)

Ahhh yes, another piece of sunny day ear candy to slap a smile on your face. Our good friend Touch Tone has paired up with fellow Angelenos machineheart for this ace remix of their poppy debut single “Circles,” which we are thrilled to be debuting here on the Binary blog.  That driving bass line, those mystical arpeggiated synths… soon accompanied by the beautiful original vocal, some piano stabs and hand claps. This remix feels built for a stress free summer.  Hop on over to Touch Tone’s facebook to download this little gem for free. And then I dare you to listen… just one more time.

Great remix from start to finish – a perfect blend of pop and disco going on here. This one ought to carry you right into and through the weekend. You can pick it up on iTunes… and don’t forget, if you’re in San Francisco you can catch Solidisco DJ’ing tonight at DNA Lounge w/ Starfucker & Slaptop.

Overjoy – Fading (Ft. Koonsi)

It’s a shame that it’s taken us so long to post ‘Fading’ –  a light, bouncy, tropical little gem from LA’s Overjoy.  Hoff & Metty, who are fantastic DJs in their own right, started this project almost a year ago, and for their first track they wisely enlisted the lyrical & vocal expertise of Binary alum and current Frogtown frontman Alex Koons (Koonsi). ‘Fading’ is one of those songs that takes you away for the full 4:32 – to a balmy jungle paradise, or maybe a breezy beach, sipping on a sweet coconut beverage. Overjoy are kindly offering this as a free download on their soundcloud, so head over there, grab it and check out some of their more recent tunes.

Popshop Poolside w/ Zhala + Hendo

Next Sunday, June 29th, Binary & Neon Gold are teaming up again for a special Popshop Poolside w/ Zhala + Hendo on the decks at the Skybar pool deck in West Hollywood. Zhala is the first signing to Robyn’s Konichiwa label, and Hendo makes some seriously frothy mixtapes that you should check out (a little disappointed that the song below wasn’t re-titled Luther Vandfroth.) Naturally, this is the official pre-party for the Robyn + Royksopp Do It Again tour stop at the Hollywood Bowl… and while we can’t say for certain, a special guest may swing by to play some tunes at the pool. It’s free w/ RSVP to skybarla@mhgc.com, so you really have no excuses. See ya there!

5 Reasons – Tales Of Love (feat. Patrick Baker)

Sweet and sensual with a pleasant touch of chilly funk. I really love this collab between 5 Reasons & Patrick Baker - the upcoming debut release from new label Palm Off. It hits all the right spots in the ears and the heart, with a groove that makes me want to go back on vacation immediately. Patrick Baker lending his vocals certainly helps to push the melody along, but 5 Reasons’ production also really stands out in the song. I like the lyrics quite a bit too. Beautiful, chill tune fit for the vibe of all those upcoming BBQs and patio hangs with your best friends. “We could be happy baby.” Indeed.

Sare Havlicek – Sound Of Your Soul feat. BB James (FM Attack Remix)

Kicking off the week, we’re stoked to premiere this brand spankin’ new FM Attack remix of Sare Havlicek’s forthcoming single ‘Sound Of Your Soul.’ Feels like a cruise through downtown LA on a warm summer night, getting ready to meet friends and make some beautiful mistakes. That pulsing synth from the outset, sprinkled with a little cowbell here and there… and those haunting vocals of BB James. It all just fits together real nice piece of 80′s inspired Italo disco. This remix, along with the original will be available May 26th on Havlicek’s label, Wooden Dunes.
