If I can bring you uplifting and joyous tunes in time for the weekend, why wouldn’t I? You are here. This weekend The Sir and I will venture out on a boat cruise for Paces’ album launch. We’ll let you know whether or not it’s ‘ship shape’. Can the puns get any worse? Why, yes they can, and they will. Enjoy this disco-dancing bonanza of tunes (a new collective noun is born), and get those shoulders moving.
Lower Spectrum: Masquerade
My affinity with west coast talent continues, this week Lower Spectrum dropped his new single Masquerade – a smokey blues-laden electronic track, that swings between sinister moods of The Shining soundtrack to peeking inside an early edition Commodore 64. Read our story with Lower Spectrum here. And keep your ears peeled for the New Haze EP, coming soon.
Club Cheval: Discipline
Club Cheval is a collective of visionaries from the vibrant French club scene. The band members – Canblaster, Myd, Sam Tiba and Panteros666 – bounce off each other’s broadly varied influences, each daring one another to do better, with every track.
Club Cheval have produced remixes for Rihanna, The Weeknd, Boys Noize and Usher.
Banoffee: With Her – Roland Tings remix
Banoffee recently released a package of With Her remixes via Dot Dash / Remote Control Records. The package features Banoffee’s single With Her reworked by the talented Roland Tings, Sh?m and Chad Valley.
Shy Carter: Bring It Back
Blake “Shy” Carter is a soulful, funky and versatile writer, producer and singer who seamlessly mixes pop, funk and soul together with catchy hooks. Bring It Back has that Outkast / Gwen Stefani / Pharrell vibe going.
Laura Mvula: Overcome feat. Nile Rodgers
Overcome features the legendary Nile Rogers, and was produced by Troy Miller , who has worked with Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson and Rumer, to name a few.
The song combines perfectly Nile’s magic touches with Laura’s thrilling harmonies layered beneath stunning tribal beats.
PUP: DVP Lyric video
This is by no means a dance tune, but the lyrics are hilarious in their simplicity, the music is raucous and the video awesome. This week Toronto punks PUP dropped the lyric video for their song DVP – watch lyrics dance across 80s video game screens.
