Sia – Elastic Heart (Clams Casino Remix)

The blessed relief when a credible producer does a remix of your guilty pleasure pop track…

Sia’s ‘Elastic Heart’ is a bona fide tune and Clams Casino (not of these parts for some time, welcome back!) has stripped out some of the chart elements and left us with a tense, taut remix that’ll stay with you.

Also, and maybe we’re the last to realise this, but Sia’s album is her SIXTH studio album and she’s done a bucketload before hitting the global popstar bigtime. Like this:

Talented.

Chopstick & Johnjon – Roots (Sasse Remix)

Been a while since we’ve had Chopstick & Johnjon on the blog. Today, before the weekend fully unleashes itself, here’s Sasse’s remix of ‘Roots’.

A very limited release on vinyl last year, Germany-based-Fin Sasse has made himself a hero and stuck this one on free download.

Have a good one, everyone.

Lake People – Purposely Uncertain Field

Lake People’s long awaited debut full-length is out today on Permanent Vacation, titled ‘Purposely Uncertain Field’.

From the tracks he’s serialised on his Soundcloud page, Lake People (real name Martin Enke) has concentrated on perfecting the melodic, shoe-gazing, tech-house style that has made his productions such a hit, both in his native Germany, and abroad.

The two we’d like to focus on are the fidgety, yet haunting ‘Glease 29’…

…and, our current favourite, ‘Drifting Red’.

On this evidence, ‘Purposely Uncertain Field’ is an LP to get lost in.

Human Drizzle will be in Berlin at the end of the month, where we will try (and probably fail) to catch Lake People at Panorama Bar. Should we manage to sneak in, we’ll report back on how this transfers to the dancefloor.

Petite Meller – Baby Love (Kiwi Remix)

HD fave Kiwi’s been at it again, serving up a driving, piano-led remix that keeps on giving throughout. It’s a rework of the French, one-time-model now popstar Petite Meller’s new single ‘Baby Love’.

Described as the most hedonistic party song to date, the original’s certainly got some colour too, with a tasty saxophone solo at the two-and-a-half minute mark. February fun:

David August – Her Myth 

David August reached 100k Facebook fans last week so decided to release the delicious ‘Her Myth’ on a free DL, good times. It’s the sort of ambient dance music we’ve come to expect from the Berliner in recent years, littered with minimal melodies and varied synths. Take five and have a listen:

If you’re wondering how this relaxed number would fit onto the dancefloor, listen no further to his Boiler Room from last year, it’s a real treat:

Après – Chicago

Released to the world via Annie Mac’s trusty Free Music Monday service, here’s ‘Chicago’ from Bambusa Records-affiliated producer Apres. Risky business playing with such a big sample, but it’s paid off. It’s a rolling, feel-good number, and it’s yours for FREE.

Garden City Movement – My Only Love

Sometimes you just need some soothing electro-pop. Some beats, but also some major key chords:

Garden City Movement are a relatively green (they formed just over a year ago) three piece from Tel Aviv and they’re evoking welcome memories of early Mount Kimbie and James Blake. ‘My Only Love’ is the first taster from their ‘Modern West’ EP, out on 6th April on BLDG5 Records and The Vinyl Factory.

For a longer listen, check in (and chill out) to their Tel Aviv Boiler Room performance:
