Yesterday the internet “erupted” with the news of a track by DAFT PUNK feat. JAY Z (as we know the internet, it got bored quickly and added a sort of “ueberrumour” about KANYE WEST having produced it…). As if that wasn’t enough a well known sneaker maker unearthed the newest track in his long ongoing project of getting three musicians to collaborate: This time it was Mick Jones and Paul Simonon from THE CLASH with Frank Ocean and Diplo! Oh, and the second one is a free download (and the first one is already made a free download for you in hours by Edward Snowden himself…..).

Wow! Surprisingly poppy percussive, hypnotic Disco-remix with a lot of DFA-vibes by the Soulwax brothers for METRONOMY. Quite irresistible and a sure explosion on advanced dancefloors… Love that crazy trumpet!
Sometimes POP is so easy. You just come up with a modern, analogue/electronic song, that is catchy as hell, has an elegant melancholy, almost classy songwriting (….and starts with asian sounding samples). Here you go: Y.O.U. is a guy from Manchester, a city infamous for bringing out talents, that sum up the history of music in 3 minutes tracks. And actually “Heavy crown” has everything, a Hit needs! Test it, it will brighten up your weekend (or the melody might haunt you in your sleep like it does to me for weeks now):

By far the best melancholic Alt-Chillwave-Pop band of the moment. For dreamers only! YUMI ZOUMA come up with two new videos plus a new remix by WILD NOTHING. What an elegant excuse for me to tell you about them again and recommend to buy their EP. For fans of RHYE, DESTROYER or TORO Y MOI (and sunsets in general)! Out now on the lovely CASCINE Records.

London’s THE REFLEX calls his edits/remixes “Re√isions” and that makes sense, because he uses the original stems to rewrite a song from scratch and gives it all a new direction. This time he goes for KID CREOLE’S “My male curiosity”. For a change the track is officially approved by Kid Creole & The Coconuts, so it will see an official release (unlike most of his other versions). Check out this fun video and visit his soundcloud for more “Re√isions”!
