Poolside’s ‘And The Sea’ gets drenched in (more) summer vibes courtesy of Pixelated’s recent remix. Yours for free up on SoundCloud.
Finding it very difficult to believe this was over three years ago…
Reflective tones on the new remix from Parisian producer Zimmer. He’s stretched out ‘Young’ from Seattle-based Vallis Alps, adding another level of dreaminess to the already melancholic tune.
For the longer listen, dip into his recent May mixtape featuring a couple of remixes from the Frenchie, besides gems from Lindstrom, Kenton Slash Demon and Moderat:
Mood music of the best kind…
With a reflective, changing of the season atmosphere here at HDHQ, we were blessed with the ideal soundtrack in this emotional, synth-heavy remix of Lea Porcelain. Roman Flügel has pulled out the new wave elements to great effect, building a crisp electronic base for Markus Nikolaus’s melancholy vocals. With all the reminiscing that came from #indieamnesty, this tugged at the heart-strings like some of the classics of the late-era, hands in the air period.
Big, bold and beautiful remix of Disclosure’s ‘Magnets’ from Jon Hopkins, as featured on the recently-released ‘Magnets (The Remixes)’ EP alongside other efforts from SG Lewis, Tiga, A-Trak and more. Go buy.
Ok, let’s get this Thursday started.
Aphrohead, aka Felix Da Housecat for all you 90s heads out there, has recently put out his first LP in over a decade and he’s pulled in the-man-who-needs-no-intro Carl Craig to rework one of the tracks, ‘Grown Man Cryy’.
The ‘Brainy Grimlin’ remix (us neither) is nine minutes of muscular techno that kicks into life with some old-fashioned bleeps at 4:40. Essentially, these two still very much have “it” and “it” is on full display here.
One for the vinyl heads.
The whole ‘Flight Formation’ package has been floating around for months now. It consists of Brighton outfit Soccer96‘s wonderful original, Glenn Astro’s DJ Friendly Edit and this cheeky number from Danny Krivit. The tune’s got that well-thought-out and finely-crafted feel that all instant classics do, and considering the jazzy affair’s finally seeing a vinyl release we thought it was worth a post.
It seems apt that our pals over at Wotnot Music are releasing this. If you’re unfamiliar with the London-based label, they’ve established a solid rep for creativity having had previous releases from K-15, Henry Wu and Deft.
Looking ahead they’ve got a lot on their plates to be excited about, with new material from Danny Clark, the Gent Mason-produced Tabanca and the below.
‘Do What You Do’ is by Aurora Dee Raynes (collab between Touchy Subject and Danielle Kranendonk) and Thump describing it as ‘the best acid trip you never took‘ should be enough to make you press play.
Second remix of this one to surface in the last week or two and it’s a corker.
The excellently-named ‘Clapapella Dub’ version of Jax Jones’ new single ‘Yeah Yeah Yeah’ chugs along at a very accommodating pace, and much to our enjoyment, JJ very kindly donated it to Annie Mac’s ‘Free Music Monday’ service yesterday.
It joins Roosevelt’s more tropical effort, which you can listen to below:
Newly signed to Modeselektor’s Monkeytown label, Francis Inferno Orchestra is a house producer from Down Under and he’s done a tech-house job on this one. Rhythmic but not oppressive, it’s a mid-set staple.
As festival season cranks into gear, we can imagine getting a serious nod on to this one, perhaps sipping a cold beer on a beach somewhere that isn’t Brighton/the Thames. Surely that’s enough to warrant a listen?
