Doshy, the Berlin-bassed Tigerbass producer, just about one-ups the source material from Kid606's Shout at the Döner track, "Monsters," on Kid's latest Dancehall of the Dead remix EP. Bringing to mind a vintage Switch production, Doshy's remix is a crackling, high-energy jam that vibrates with just about all the wobbly bass one could shake a glow stick at.
Montreal-based NROTB pounces on this banger from the Major Lazer squad and vamps it up with that disco-y, nu-rave, electro-house kick that everyone has been, well, raving about as of late.
Dutty Artz vocalist Jahdan Blakkamoore has dropped us a track from his upcoming Bazooka Shot mixtape. Fresh off of his collaboration with Major Lazer and in preparation for his debut album, Buzzrock Warrior, Blakkamoore has made a classic dancehall anthem in "Dem Nuh Like It," chock-full of bouncing beats, thick bass, and plenty of melodic MC work that features help from 77Klash and Spoek Mathambo.
After nearly three years of silence, Detroit's Daniel has returned with Lazrus, an album of melancholy electronic pop. Summoning Jamie Lidell's soulfulness and Ben Gibbard's plaintive vocals, "Goodbye Silhouette" is a gem of lovely melodies from a city more known for its hard-edged techno.
Culled from Horse Meat Disco's upcoming first mix CD, Plaza's 1979 hit strikes gold again with a sound that combines a bit of Donna Summer's airiness with a bit of Salsoul's lush orchestral arrangements. A perfect track for queens and disco revivalists alike.
Imagine a cello-less Arthur Russell remixing a slower DJ Slugo or DJ Godfather instrumental. Yeah, it is a bit hard to fathom, isn't it? Listen to this Osborne remix of Brooklyn's Michna—which can be found on Michna's new Eggstra EP alongside some other new tracks and remixes—and you'll have a better idea of what we're talking about. Maybe.
