Nice summery disco-edit by Rework-Magician THE REFLEX for french sunshine-poppers TAHITI 80. Two great things about this: 1. Good to see that THE REFLEX starts reworking new music by new artists. 2. Great to see that french fluffy Ueberpoppers TAHITI 80 are still alive. They have a new album called “Ballroom” which is worth checking out. If, for some strange reason, you have never heard about TAHITI 80, check out “love from outer space” from 2001 even more below.
This track is pure “SILK”. Toronto based trio FALCON PUNCH give away another brilliant, smooth soft-disco track for FREE. Don’t forget to say thanks and check out their other classy dancetracks, especially my favorite, “Flying High” with the guys from PIXELATED.
Berlin, watch out. We finally made it. The one and only blue eyed soul – maestro from the Westcoast NED DOHENY is coming to play an intimate acoustic gig here on 29.3. at Roter Salon/Volksbühne. It is Neds first appearance in Berlin, actually it is his first ever tour of Europe and UK. Made possible by enthusiasm only, by people that love his music (a.o. the lovely guys from Be With Records and Numero Group, who recently rereleased his music on vinyl). The Berlin show is organized by Daniel Best/Best Works, Marc Weiser/Roter Salon & Too Slow To Disco/How Do You Are?. It is a big risk, but we all love Ned Doheny’s music so much, we just have to do it (Like LCD SOUNDSYSTEM once said: “Well daft punk is playing at my house, my house. You got to set them up kid, set them up”. You get the point…). He will be joined by Mr DJ Supermarkt and some more DJs on the decks. The Poster was designed by graphic-legend PETE FOWLER (famous for his artworks for SUPER FURRY ANIMALS a.m.m.) Tickets will be available directly at the Volksbühne from february 1st. Until then you can buy them online at Koka, link at the bottom.
watch and listen to him playing acoustic versions of “On and On”, “A Bluemoon Rising” and “Whatcha Gonna Do for Me” in Japan/1991:
Recently discovered young French producer MOI JE by accident on soundcloud. Not only did he just share a really funky modern disco-rework of “Resiste” by FRANCE GALL, which is pure french-house-influenced cut-up/loop fun, but I can recommend to listen to his own music. Sounds like L.A. Daytime Disco with a clear smooth “french touch” to me. Check out “Commence” below:
One of the acts to watch out in 2015 will definitely be London’s brother-duo FORMATION. Looks like JD TWITCH from Optimo would agree on that. Here he gives the original version the much loved Optimo-treatment, adding a lot of space, bass and some dubby parts. Blends in perfectly with that dirty voice.
