All I wanna be is down with you.
With our 10th jubilee release we are also featuring a true love romance. The charismatic duo Danito & Athina are delivering some funkyish, warm and sexy grooving tunes for the cold season. Danito is already familiar to you with great releases on labels like Cocoon and Moon Harbour. Together they are taking us on a journey passing the philly sound of the 70s, the funk disco love songs of the 80s to present times united in an addictive deep sleek sound.
I guess while I’m talking France (and Disclosure), I should share with you guys one of my favorite new Soundcloud finds. More electro than I am used to, but he keeps it chilled out without getting too Skrillex on us. Reminds me a lot of J.U.S.T.I.C.E., which is probably not a coincidence. Really looking forward to hearing more from this dude. It’d be awesome if he kept going more towards Pretty Lights and less towards Alvin Risk, but I guess only time will tell. Until then, let this remix scratch you in that place you didn’t even know itched.
We’ve supported this young, Parisian artist since the beginning and couldn’t be more proud to say so. Every beat he releases continues to impress me whether it be a chilled out hip-hop inspired melter like the one featured below, or a more dance floor oriented groover like the remix of Disclosure‘s Latch with his french homie PHAZZ (link).

Avicii really hit it big with the original of “You Make Me.” It is definitely one of the best tracks on his new album…regardless of what all those haters out there may say about the album as a whole. But this remix…whoa. Throttle is a young producer out of Melbourne who has burst onto the scene over the past few months with his impressive brand of “dirty disco.” Not only does he do wonders with a mashup, but his originals are quite impressive as well. He has some extremely catchy piano/synth melodies and combines them with high-energy disco/electro drops that will have any crowd on its feet in seconds. I like to think of his sound as a cross between Dada Life and Madeon. He has certainly caught my attention and just may have restored by faith in that electro sound.
My boys over at WallflowerFood have been doing some serious soundcloud research. They specialize in those funky, deep, tropical, feel good vibes and always put together solid playlists full of fun, happy music. Wherever you are for the holidays, press play, turn up the volume, and find your beach. Playlist features originals from the likes of Bit Funk and RAC, remixes and edits from some new talents like Kygo and Thomas Jack, who are rumored to be working on a collaboration for 2014 (you can say i’m excited for that track…boner), and they even throw in some nu school edits of classics like Stardust‘s “Music Sounds Better With You” and Leo Reed‘s “Take A Walk On The Wild Side.” There are 32 tracks in this playlist and I for one downloaded at least 25 off the list. So basically, I’m just saying…get them while they’re hot.
