Ready to boogie? From dreamy disco house to playful indie pop, Disco Diaries is here to serve up another fresh batch of the grooviest tunes found on the interwebs–including a special exclusive premiere! So sit back, relax, and let these beats ramp up your Monday afternoon vibe.
Glitter Wasteland – Don’t Let It Go (Punks Jump Up Remix) [On The Fruit]
This week’s first track is also Disco Diaries’ first-ever exclusive premiere, and we’re definitely starting off on the right foot with this one. London’s remix-extraordinaires, Punks Jump Up, have heavily tweaked Glitter Wasteland’s already-catchy Don’t Let It Go, and it’s begging to be played on a light-up dance floor ASAP. The original pop single, this snazzy edit, and additional remixes by IAMX and Leebo Freeman will be out via The Fruit Records on Oct. 13.
Blue Boy – Remember Me (The Woman Of The Ghetto) (FlicFlac Edit)
I know I can always count on Max Gain and Kevin Richi, the glorious men of FlicFlac, to deliver quality remixes that will incite contagious feet-tapping and head-bobbing on the spot. Blue Boy’s original 1996 Remember Me features a famous sample from Marlena Shaw’s famous 1969 The Woman of the Ghetto, making this latest FlicFlac edit the ultimate trans-generational work of art. Free download available here.
Sirens Of Lesbos – Long Days, Hot Nights (Claptone Remix) [Exploited]
According to Siren of Lesbos’ biography, their fundamental goal is to create “musically uplifting and spiritually meaningful songs that inspire you to embrace life in all its forms; that make you dance in your fantasy or in the real world.” According to Berlin house producer Claptone’s bio, the focus is on “exploring new sounds naturally and forever taking inspiration from long gone and occult worlds.” Hence this beautiful fusion of the two styles that exemplifies standout vocals and classic production at their finest. This tune was released via Exploited Records on Sept. 15 along with a funky remix by the disco king Fred Falke. Both are available for Beatport purchase here.
Dirty Radio – Illegal (Beat by: Darius)
If you have yet to fall in love with French House master Darius’ Espoir, or the entire Romance EP for that matter, please get started on that immediately. For the rest of the population who has fawned over the track for the nearly the last year, it’s time to rehash the obsession with Dirty Radio’s “illegal” take on it, complete with a infectious vocal and a free download.
Les Professionnels – Don’t Give It Away (Original Mix) [Rock It Science Laboratories]
Les Professionels, the Philadelphia-based synth pop trio, recently unleashed this original jam, an addictive blend of bouncy indie dance and synth-infused nu disco styles that is sure to put you in a cheerful mood. You can snatch this number, along with remixes by Aimes, The Dead Rose Music Company, and Superprince, via Beatport here.
MIX OF THE WEEK: Goldroom – Otoño Mix 2014
Oh Goldroom, where to even begin? Opening with his dreamy, practically hypnotic, original Sunrise, and moving on to a highly-refined track list of mesmerizing nu disco, indie, and house gems, the Otoño Mix 2014 kicks off fall in prime fashion. Thank you, Josh Legg, for creating outstanding seasonal mix tapes that always satisfy and are available as free downloads for our listening convenience.
