RELEASE: The Knocks feat. St. Lucia – Modern Hearts (The Remixes) [A&M/Octone]

7374524

As if the original track wasn’t good enough, The Knocks had to go and do this…A remix package featuring a couple silky smooth, funky fraiche, nu disco remixes from Treasure Fingers, Goldroom and Amtrac, who are three of our favorites here at AYNE, and then a pretty stellar progressive house remix from Fareoh. The other remixes are from NAPT (breaks) and The Aston Shuffle (electro house). The first four are all mint. The others aren’t my favorite styles but take them for a spin cause the producers deserve it. Previews and purchase links below (couldn’t find an Amtrac preview, which makes me sad…but oh well…it’s not like you won’t download it anyway). Make sure you support all the artists and buy via Beatport. Original is below as well. Didn’t post it before…tisk tisk.

For those who like to get down on the floor and groove a bit.

That fun big room shit. You know you love it.

Funky Fraiche Friday [12.7.2012]

We’re back with another edition of “Funky Fraiche Friday” kids. Been kinda busy lately, so this one is gonna be fairly compact. I have a couple mixes for you that have really been helping with my patience while in excel all week, and I have also included a select few tracks that are simply essential. Have a good weekend and keep it fraiche.

To start it off we have a free download from Jaytech. It’s oh sooooo delicious. It will most definitely be on the playlist for tonight. Count on it NYC.

Sharam Jey continues to blow my mind. Track by track, his forthcoming album, “Bunny Tiger,” is shaping up to be a masterpiece. A ton of original stuff like this one. This will definitely be one of those times where you want every track. Dude is a g…for genius.

Bondax is one duo who always does it right. Productions are tiiiiight and mixes are spot on. Check out their free mix for Fader Magazine. It features a ton of unreleased stuff. Gotta respect that about them.

Sometimes it’s fun to do some research for yourself. Therapeutic really. Go to his Facebook this Sunday for the full tracklist, and while your there, show Zimmer some love.

Everyone can agree with this statement…The Knocks are 100% cash money in pretty much every way. And the intro to this mix…might be the best thing I have ever heard. Ever. And the mix as a whole is the best mix I have heard from the NYC duo in some time.

Funky Fraiche Friday [10.19.2012]

My deepest apologies for missing last Friday’s post. What can I say? This whole “job” this is a tough gig. Anyways, you know we got you. So, in efforts to make up for our mistake, we are serving up a shit ton of music to you guys…most of it free, so enjoy. This weeks post will feature mixes from Aeroplane, Bogdan, and one of our favorite local acts, The Knocks. Later in the post you will get some individual tracks from a plethora of artists that have that one essential thing in common…ze funky beats. Enjoy kids.

Aeroplane’s “August Mix” is an all time favorite of mine. This one is pretty solid as well. He has impeccable taste in funky beats. Get familiar.

Tracklist:

1. Mayer Hawthorne – No Strings ( RAC Remix ) 
2. Mock & Toof – My Head 
3. Monitor 66 – Triscuits 
4. Lloydski – Go To Sleep ( La Royale’s Do Not Sleep Version ) 
5. Electic Sound – Pareos ( Future Feelings Remix ) 
6. Dan Croll – From Nowhere ( Ben Gomori’s “Staring You In The Eye ” Remix )

8. Ultracity – Delta 
9. MANIK & Jeremy Glenn – Parasol 
10. Andre VII – Discoteca Clandestina ( Bufi Remix )

12. Michoacan – Disco Sucks So Good ( Dubka Remix ) 
13. Infinity Ink – Infinity ( Claude Vonstroke Remix ) 
14. Bat For Lashes – All Your Gold ( Hercules & Love Affair Remix )

This is my pic so far this month for best mix/podcast/radio show…whatever…its dank. Bogdan don’t do the whole “tracklist” thang, so you’ll just have to scavenge.

The Knocks just ended their tour with Dragonette. They are back in the studio. That means more dope tracks coming our way. Love it. Here is there most recent promo mix.

Tracklist:

Morgan Page – Body Work Ft. Tegan and Sarah 
Goldfrapp – Rocket 
Foster the People- Don’t Stop (TheFatRat Remix) 
Skrillex – Summit ft. Ellie Goulding (Aylen Remix) 
Housse De Racket – Roman (Alvin Risk Remix) 
The S – Apology (Original Mix)

Sneaky Sound System- Pictures ( Tonight Only Remix) 
Barbara Tucker – Playing With My Mind (96 Bulls Edit Mix) 
The Killers – I Got Soul (Chris Tall Remix)

Young Blood Hawke – We Come Running (The Knocks Remix)

Now we got some individual tracks that will surely have those asses shakin’ till the mornin’ light. And if you don’t like dancing, steer clear…well what I meant to say is, fuck off.

Yea, that’s right. Dillon Francis gets funky too, just in a more..how you say….letsgetfuckingweird way. This track is going to be insane.

Only good vibes here. Vocals crush it. DCUP takes care of the beats, and he’s always on point. Night time = Dance time.

All we are asking on this one is…do you like to get deep? Cause we do. Frequently. This one is out on Nov 12th via Defected Records. Nick Curly, you’re a legend. Respect brotha.

Chill electronic vibes, breaks, vocal sampling, dope synths, etc. This track has everything. Never thought a remix of a Skrillex track could sound better than the original, but here you go. Blende’s baseline on the drop and overall production genius make this one an absolutely ESSENTIAL free download.

Here is one for the night cap this evening. Turn down the lights. Maybe light some candles. Press play. Make love (gentle, but firm…very firm). Repeat.

Sorry I didn’t post more…crunched for time. But this should satisfy you for now. Happy donsing children. Wilki out.

FREE DOWNLOAD: Haim – Forever (The Knocks Remix)

The Kocks uploaded this fraiche little sally earlier this afternoon, and I have been listening to it obsessively. Maybe it’s the whimsical, 90s style female vocals, or the fact that this group, Haim, is composed of three uber-talented, sexy, independent ladies that have serious style. It could also be the dope baseline, funky guitar melody (riff at the end), and euphoric synth chords added by The Knocks. Most likely…it’s a bit of both. The NYC duo has really outdone themselves here. Check it out for yourself, and you’ll be donsing all night. Definitely dropping this one at Grey Lady NYC tonight. Be there.
