Ready for your Monday afternoon pick-me-up? Disco Diaries is back to present the latest and greatest in nu disco, disco house, and indie dance. So turn the music on, the volume up, and your brain off.
Blonde feat. Ryan Ashley – Foolish (Dansson Remix) [Parlophone]
Daniel Andersson, a house producer better known as Dansson, employs his Berlin roots to add a major kick to Blonde’s very groovy Foolish. Pre-order the full EP, set for a May 25 release via Parlophone Records, here.
Sam Smith – Stay With Me (Wilfred Giroux Remix) [Capitol]
If you love Sam Smith’s Stay With Me, then you definitely want to hear this. London-based Wilfred Giroux takes an emotionally-charged slow jam and turns it into a dancefloor hit, which has become increasingly common for Sam Smith’s tracks. Get ready for the May 18 Stay With Me EP release by pre-ordering here.
Sharam feat. Honey Honey – My Way (Hotel Garuda Radio Mix) [Yoshitoshi]
With remixes like this, you’re definitely going to want to check in to Hotel Garuda ASAP. DC’s Manila Killa and LA’s Candle Weather recently joined forces to create Hotel Garuda, and the duo has enjoyed much success after their remix of Rhythm of the Night practically blew up overnight. This tune is available exclusively via Beatport now.
Goldbloc – Days Are Dreaming (shmallen Remix) [Free Download]
Connecticut producer shmallen’s edit of Days Are Dreaming is simply beautiful. Goldbloc, the producer/vocalist pair from Boston, recently released their debut album, dubbing them “one of the best slept on acts of our time” by Earmilk. Grab your free copy of shmallen’s remix here, and while you’re at it, I highly recommend downloading the dreamy Black Gold EP as well.
Klangkarussell – Netzwerk (Falls Like Rain)
With their recent remix of Lykke Li’s No Rest For The Wicked (featured on last week’s Disco Diaries) and multiple originals at this caliber, it has become official: Klangkarussell never disappoints. The Austrian duo’s latest jazz-house masterpiece will be released on July 20–do yourself a favor and pre-order it here.
