TUNE. Falcon Punch and PIXELATED have joined forces to create an atmospheric, sexual, slow burning jam. Psychedelic delay, a funky fuzzed out guitar and a soulful vocal track. Thoughtful, and F.R.E.S.H. Free Download.Get it while you can.Yes it’s Monday.
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.
Solidisco delivers another fantastic remix, this time for Icona Pop’s ‘Just Another Night.’ Bongos and handclaps and horns, oh my! Magical & majestic tune that just makes you want to get up and move. 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.
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.
While some refer to French Express as a record label, I like to think of them as a collective who are united for the singular purpose of preserving a culture of music lovers that can truly appreciate uplifting tunes. It is especially Moon Boots (1/4 French Express) who always inspires us to think more positively about ourselves. His latest release “Whatever You Need,” reminds us how important it is to always be there for others as much as they are for us (if not more), be they romantic lovers, family, friends, mentors or our local community. On a more personal note, I will never forget Day #1 Coachella 2014, feeling extremely out of my element in a large California desert. Then out of nowhere, the distant echo of Moon Boot’s “Off My Mind” had me sprinting to the Do LaB stage, just to find Moon Boots spinning right alongside Perseus. This was exactly the heartwarming surprise we needed to feel right at home.
