New electronic artist Figgy has been making some very interesting remixes. He has recently released some original material that should also receive some serious attention. He has a ton of free downloads on his Soundcloud page. Hurry over and snatch em up before he wises up and makes you pay for this heat.
New pop dance shit from Kiesza. It reminds me of Jess Glynne. Bear witness to the Post-Disclosure EDM scene. I’m a fan.
Slinger be slinging them heaters. A couple weeks ago, an exceptional remix of The Kooks’ “Around Town” by Slinger fell into my inbox. It caught my attention immediately. A couple days ago Slinger hit gold again when he remixed my latest crush Jess Glynne’s new solo effort “Right Here”. Just for you, I have both remixes below. I think this new electronic producer has a lot of promise. His sonic choices are impressive. He doesn’t overwhelm you with pulsing bass, he has unique sounds, and stays dancey while remaining melodic. Can’t wait to see what the kid comes up with next.
I just got back from Copenhagen, Denmark, where I went for a week to check out the epic Roskilde music festival. The headliners included The Rolling Stones, Outkast, Stevie Wonder, Arctic Monkeys, Major Lazer and Damon Albarn. Drake’s bitch ass was supposed to headline but cancelled due to a yeast infection, so he was replaced by Jack White. The festival was bananas, and very dirty. Girls and boys were peeing in public on every tree and wall in site, and the camp grounds looked more like a refugee camp. But that’s the fun of a music festival. I always keep my ear to the ground in a new country and stumbled upon this dope house track from Route 94 that I heard on Copenhagen radio. I know nothing about this dude, but found myself singing the song all weekend. Hope you enjoy!
Pop superpowers Kylie Minogue and Pharrell Williams teamed up recently for the very catchy “I Was Gonna Cancel”. I mean, seriously, how does Pharrell have time for all this music making? This weekend I received an even sexier, dancier version of the track from French producer Steph Seroussi. I’m loving his additional production of the track, giving that indie flare and still making it dancefloor ready. Keep up the good work Steph
Here is some disco house dancey-ness from two So-Cal locals calling themselves Shoe Scene Symphony. Seems like they gained some traction by getting their Lorde remix played on mainstream radio. Congrats to them for that, but I’m more enamored by their House remixes of some popular R&B tracks from the turn of the Century. As some die hard readers may know, I am obsessed with Aaliyah remixes, and they do a pretty nice job remixing her Romeo Must Die anthem “Try Again”. They also give a sexy disco house remix of Janet’s “Deep”. For some dudes from the OC, I’m pretty impressed. Keep em coming guys and hit me up if you ever make it up to LA.
The day has finally come where I can officially announce the return of La Roux!

You can pre-order it HERE. So hyped! Today will now be known as La Roux day. Mark it down on your calendars. Bout damn time La Roux.
