Greetings, disco kings and queens! It’s time for another dose of Disco Diaries to spice up your typical Monday routine. Just press play to enjoy the latest and greatest in deep and nu disco, indie dance, and electro pop.
Jaymes Young – What Is Love (Lost Frequencies Bootleg)
Let’s be real: how can you not fall in love with a cover of Haddaway’s infamous What Is Love sung by the sweet, tender voice of Jaymes Young? Add a subtle but very necessary kick by Belgian producer Lost Frequencies and you’ve got a fully-renovated hit song. This one’s available for free download via Lost Frequencies’ Facebook now.
The Aston Shuffle feat. Kaelyn Behr – No Place Like Home (Original Mix)
From the same men that brought you Tear It Down and Can’t Stop Now comes an equally epic tune, No Place Like Home. With an endless array of tasteful productions and fervent vocals, The Aston Shuffle’s Photographs album is one of the grooviest dance pop albums in recent history.
FKJ – The Twins (Patrick Baker Bootleg)
As a fan of French Kiwi Juice (FKJ), Nashville-based producer/vocalist Patrick Baker decided to create his own version of The Twins, tweaking the original production and adding his sublime vocals on top. Snatch the free download and play this one next time you’re with that special someone.
TCTS feat. K Stewart – Games (Original Mix) [MTA]
Following the premier single You featuring Sam Sure, Games is the second release from Sam O’Neil’s forthcoming EP of the same name. With beats this catchy and vocalists this soulful, it seems that TCTS is on a path similar to that of Disclosure and Tensnake–a path paved with disco house hits.
Hot Pixels feat. Felix – Don’t Be Afraid (Original Mix)
Hot Pixels are super fresh on the scene, with only this track and a handful of followers to be found on their SoundCloud page, but they show a very promising trajectory already. The Romanian duo teamed up with singer Felix Popescu to generate this contagious, easy-listening tune, and I’m definitely not afraid to hear what else they have in store.

With Chromeo, Oliver Nelson, The Knocks, Chic, and much more packed into just 35 minutes, this mixtape is the ultimate showcase of funk at its finest.
