Kingdom - Bank Head (feat. Kelela)
Just listened to Kingdom’s first track off his forthcoming album, Vertical XL which drops on May 28th and I’m quite excited for its release. “Bank Head” has Kingdom’s signature cascading bass waterfalls, combined with claps and a warm synth to produce a very warm, summer-ready beat. You can hear the influence of his time with Night Slugs on this track with the echoing vocals that are reminiscent of Girl Unit’s dancefloor dominator “Wut.” Enjoy the smooth bass.
The Chemical Brothers - Swoon (Lindstrom & Prins Thomas Remix)
I’ve been on quite the disco kick lately, and this late-2010 remix of The Chemical Brothers epic track “Swoon” has me on a psychedelic disco adventure. The Norwegian Lindstrom and Prins Thomas take this heady track on a ride on the Scandinavian space-age-disco train, a la Todd Terje, with synths that are pretty much out of this world. I would love to hear this jam with my feet in the sand somewhere. Can’t wait for summer.
Time for a smooth, airy remix. Here’s Moon Boots’ remix of Alison Valentine’s Peanut Butter. Get ready for something super dreamy. Mmmm. There’s nothing peanut butter sticky about it. Below, listen to the original track by the NYC artist. It’s a good tune with some disco pop and French electro house flair and some tropical breezy feel.

Laid back, summer disco groove by Suzanne Kraft. I saw Suzanne a little while ago at some party over at Public Works, and he did a great job of bringing that disco warmth to the floor. Enjoy this free track from Friends of Friends new sister label, Young Adults. Props again to XLR8R for always bringing the freshest of jams to light.

Phoenix - Lisztomania (Classixx Remix) [download]
Happy Sunday everybody. This is a sweet, disco-ed out version of Lisztomania by Classixx. Much more dancy, synthed out and and electronic than the original… this tune will surely get you stepping to the beat. More by Classixx to come!
The Shins - Sleeping Lessons (RAC Remix) [download]
I absolutely love The Shins. That being said, I haven’t really heard many people remix their tracks. This is a really mellow remix by the awesome Remix Artist Collective, or RAC, who I blogged about earlier today. They took one of my favorite Shins songs, “Sleeping Lessons,” and chilled it out really perfectly. Really great stuff.
Two Door Cinema Club - Something Good Can Work (RAC Remix) [download]
RAC, or Remix Artist Collective does an amazing remix of Two Door Cinema Club’s “Something Good Can Work.” I already love the original, but this remix is a super chilled out take on the song, and its a different vibe than the Twelves dancier take. I had the pleasure of seeing RAC spin last week at Dim Mak Tuesdays, and it was a fun indie dance party all night. Check it.
