Happy Memorial Day Weekend Tunage || XINOBI // MOON BOOTS // DAFT PUNK // MAYA JANE COLES // JOHN NEWMAN // EJECA // SUPERPOZE
I mean, Xinobi always kills it. Always. I don't think I've disliked one thing he's touched. But for some reason THIS one (I'm sure I say the same thing every time I post one of his remixes) but it hits the gut. I think I lost my breath at that 2:15 mark. It's simply gorgeous. Not to mention, the original to this song is fire in itself. Take a listen to the OG after this to get the best of both worlds.
It always takes me a damn minute to get into Moon Boots songs and I don't know why but when I finally get into it, I sure as hell get into it. This one has a particularly summery sound, which is just perfect for all of us north of the equator.
Uhhhh, if you haven't set the time aside to listen to the new Daft Punk yet, talk to the hand. It would be blasphemous to ignore a production this incredible, and frankly, I don't like you if you haven't heard it, and I hate you if you heard it and don't like it. So now that this is clear, THIS might be my favorite from the album. I mean to label a favorite is not right, they all are super special in their own way (just like each and every one of YOU) but this one makes me uncomfortably happy, and the lead into "Contact" is just unreal. The J. Cas one is the other favorite, same with "Giorgio by Moroder" who I actually had the honor to see SPIN at 76 years old on Monday.
Maya Jane Coles, you fox. You really give me hope for life. Such a stunner babe with SUCH a deep talent. Anyway this song, dark, deep, sultry, weird and perfect. The vocals are absolute gold, and sort of kinda resemble Bjork am I right??
Oh you know my eternal love for progressive house. I love this so much and I love love love that this is becoming perfected yet again. Oh those piano chords could just sing me into eternal bliss day after day.
I mean, this is just so COOL. I haven't heard anything like this in quite some time, and to tell you the truth it was rather refreshing now that everyone's disco overloading like crazy. Sometimes we just need really weird music to keep us in check, ya know!?

I mean after all this emotional journey with Daft Punk I embarked on yesterday, it was hard for me to want to listen to anything else, let alone talk to anyone who hadn't listened yet, or go anywhere for fear of forgetting the incredible feeling that came over me after the album had completed itself.
Today, LANCELOT released his "You'll Never be Mine" EP and it is absolutely unreal. I had first heard his track "We Can Dance" a while ago because Goldroom fired it up with a crazy remix, and since then, I've been watching LANCELOT a bit (not only is he legitmately gorgeous to look at) but his music is serious and this EP just solidified my curiosity with what he was capable of.

They played last night and I missed them. I'm mad but then not cause like I need to save money because all I do is win win win with concerts and I need to chill. ANWAY, not to be dramatic but I think this might be one of my favorite remixes I've heard to any Presets song.
Curling up in my bathtub and drowning myself with bubbles with the lights off while this is playing in the background is my new favorite hobby. The original to this is absolutely just as stunning, but this remix, those bongo sounds, oh it's like take my heart and melt it why don't you.
This. Kid. David August, 22 year old babe who KNOWS how to play some house. This little baby remix has been my fave so far. If you know me, you know why. Anything piano or violin or strings or classical mixed in with deep synths is basically my life supply. HAHA you freaking hear that at 2:10?? How much fun is he I just wanna like pinch his cheeks and dance with him. And then like maybe make out with him a little or something.
And again. But this time this is seriously deep classic house. This reminds me of Benassi's sound WAY back in the day, and I'm so happy this still is up and kicking. I LOVE the progressive piano sounds oh man thank you baby Jesus for allowing David August to be on this Earth.
OK so remember when I wrote about them and they were Saint Lou Lou? No you don't remember because my writing really isn't that cool, ok..well anyway, they changed their name, their look, and unfortunately I think we have another product of Hollywood on our hands BUT IT'S OK because......listen to this! This is great! Yeah it's a Sango remix but whatever! Oh so deep and dark and visceral. And my God, does he take good care of those vocals.
Check out the track they did with Chet Faker, btw..."Fool of Me." Really tasty.

Well well well. My darling girl Valentina, you know her from Joe Goddard's "Gabriel", you know, my favorite song in the entire universe. Her vocals OH MAN if vocals could stop the rotation of the Earth for a moment. Sensual, grand, and pure, in the strongest, deepest sense.
AND WHAT do we have here!? The best remix of "Wolves" that anyone could ask for. That is the Deep House shit this needed.
