Roisto – No Regrets

Regular readers around here will be familiar with the fact that both Fourbearsjr and myself are kind of obsessed with the 80's tinged discofied Frenchtouch sound of guys like Alan Braxe, Fred Falke and Madeon etc… Back in the mid to late 90's when the early French sound emerged, via Daft Punk and Cassius it was difficult to envisage how big a movement within dance music it was going to be.   I can remember being...

Rony Rex – Burn (KASPERG Remix)

I've been off on Holiday for a few weeks so many thanks to Fourbearsjr for holding the fort n my absence, but back, with Batteries recharged and I'm going to drop a soulful slice of Electronic house in Kaspergs remix of Rony Rex's Burning on Youth Control Recordings (yes, those cheeky chaps from Helsinki are back with another top notch EP of modern house).   The Remix EP comes with tracks from Roisto, Gas Gas...

Cavego – Red Light (Feat. Arielle) Koobra Remix

It's going to be a short one tonight but its that gang at Youth Control lighting up my mornings and middle aged dance moves. In fact, I wasn't going to post this track but i realised that 1) its awesome and 2) i have been absolutely hammering it on my way to work each morning for quite sometime.   Its no secret that we are huge fans of the Youth Control label. The quality and...

Steve Aoki & Louis Tomlinson – Just Hold On (TJH87 Remix)

Look, I know your eyebrows are raised right now, but lets get past the elephant in the room and accept the fact i'm posting a track by Steve Aoki and Louis Tomlinson, ok. Yeah, it's not an artist(s) you'd normally associate with us as a blog, not that there is anything wrong with his music I firmly belive that people should like what they like, it's just not in keeping with what we usually feature.   So why...

Birdee – Hold On

I've not been able to post for a fair while due to travelling with work, flying is a complete pain in the balls, but it does give me a chance to listen to music and this week my various treks across the globe have been sound tracked by the New Youth Control EP, Birdee – Three Sides of Love.   It's an interesting EP, I guess in some ways Birdee's EP is a bit of departure...

Million Dollar Weekends – Addicted To Your Love (Disco Despair Remix)

We've been fans and supporters of Youth Control's Disco Despair for a hot minute now so it's always a moment of joy when we get a new DD track through the grapevine, or as in this case remix.   If you haven' heard Million Dollar Weekends version i suggest you check it out, because while it's not a bad track it's quite startling how much the Disco Despair version feels like the original and the Million...

H1 2016 Mix

So, as you know Aapie and I have full time jobs and families, so we do this on the side, when we can. We often talk about doing mixes or summaries of posts we have stuck up but rarely get time to do it. In fact i pretty much did a mix of a few tracks from 2015 that i never got round to finishing. Anyway, i finally pulled my finger out and complete a...

Disco Despair – You Are Girl (Feat. Jeremey David)

We've featured Disco Despair a couple of times on here, I'm an unashamed fan of their disco dinged pop tinged house. So I was interested to see they had a new track coming out on Youth Control (a label that regularly features on the blog) and was extremely happy to find it in my inbox earlier this week.   It's another very strong outing from the Finnish label, an instant feel good sing along pop tune. In...

Les Gordon – Atlas (Roisto Remix)

I'm quite a fan of the Kitsune label but I do find their output can be a bit hit and miss. Often i find that remixes are the real gem on a lot of their releases and Roisto's remix of Atlas by Les Gordon's is a prime example of that.   The original is an acoustic guitar led piece of Electronica, it's nice – the vocal cut up is mesmeric and the swing of the drums...
