Review: Uffe Stræss EP

Label: Tartelet

The second record from Amsterdam's Uffe is not an easy one to pin down.

Download: Logo feat. eLBee BaD "Give Mo Luv (Aashton & Swift Remix)"

First Listen
Label: Kitsune

Bristol duo Aashton & Swift has resurfaced with a remix of "Give Mo Luv," the new single from the Parisian outfit Logo. The former of the two duos presents a fiery take on the original dancefloor tune, applying much of the same classic-house sensibilities—saucy vocals, vintage synth tones, rolling basslines, et al—that we heard in "Covenant" last fall. Logo's forthcoming Give Mo Luv single also features remixes from fellow Parisian Boston Bun and German producer Matthias Zimmerman, and will be released via Kitsuné on January 14.

Download: Silent Rider "I Was A Bomb (Tony Quattro Remix)"

Brooklyn electro-folk artist Silent Rider may not be all that appropriate for XLR8R, but he does get remixed by those who are—including Tony Quattro, the club-minded producer who happens to also be an editorial intern at XLR8R's NY HQ. Perfect for any night at the club, his remix renders the somewhat algid original track into festoons of juke-referencing vocal chops, climactic builds, and, of course, subsequent hefty drops. After you check out "I Was A Bomb (Tony Quattro Remix)," make sure to grab the rest of Silent Rider's remix EP as a free download, after the jump.  Read more »
