PREMIERE: Indiana – Only The Lonely (Fred Falke Remix) [Epic]
UK singer/songwriter Indiana initially made her mark in the electronic music world with Solo Dancing, which reached the UK Singles Chart’s top 15 and received superb treatments by Chris Lake, Joe Goddard, and KAOS. Her more recent single, Only The Lonely, was dubbed “a ballad you can dance to” by BBC Radio 1‘s Zane Lowe and officially established Indiana as one of UK’s top emerging artists.
Today, we are extremely pleased to present the exclusive premiere a very special rendition of Only The Lonely, created by one of Disco Diaries‘ favorite artists, Fred Falke. Falke enlivens the emotionally driven alternative pop track with a touch of his signature French house flare, allowing it to a take on a more buoyant, electro house feel that is enjoyable for any listening occasion.
You can pre-order the Only The Lonely remix package here, which includes remixes by KANT and Fehrplay as well.
The single will be featured on Indiana’s highly anticipated Romeo album to be released Jan. 19 via Sony Music’s Epic Records. Pre-order it here.
Hayden James – Something About You [Future Classic]
You know that feeling when you listen to the first five seconds of a song, and you already know it’s going to be your new favorite? That was certainly the case with this new number by Hayden James, the Sydney-based producer most recognized for his ultra sexy Permission To Love. Following Touch Sensitive’s release last week, Something About You is the second track featured on Future Classic’s Teen Idols compilation. The album is set for a Dec. 19 release and can be pre-ordered here.
D’Angelo and The Vanguard – Sugah Daddy (Red Bull 20 Before 15) [Sony]
Take a little bit of funky jazz, add a touch of smooth R&B, stir it up with a generous helping of soul, and you’ve got the highly esteemed D’Angelo. After being MIA for a colossal 14 years, the beloved Grammy-winner gave fans their first taste of his upcoming Black Messiah LP with the extremely enticing Sugah Daddy. D’Angelo’s signature falsetto and The Vanguards’ distinguished, sophisticated fusion of sounds create a tune that no one can deny. Sugah Daddy was the 14th of Red Bull’s 20 free downloads before 2015, and the full album was released Dec. 14. Get it while it’s hot here.
Crystal Fighters – Love Alight (Jean Tonique Remix)
When I discovered this jam just last week, I was immediately disappointed that it fell under my radar for several months since its September release. With such a high-quality edit of the legendary Crystal Fighters’ Love Alight, Jean Tonique proves–yet again–that he is the master of sleek, groovy nu disco remixes. Catch your free download here.
Childish Gambino – 3005 (Chordashian Remix)
It’s one thing to remix an indie or a classic disco track, but it’s another groove-ify a hip hop track… and to be successful at it. The Brooklyn-based duo known as Chordashian has successfully transformed 3005 by looping Childish Gambino’s catchy “hol’ up” and incorporating a refreshing air of tropical, dance-y synths. The free download is available here.
MIX OF THE WEEK: LCAW – Take Me To Your Paradise (Winter Mix Vol. VII)
Opening with a particularly mellow and soothing remix by AMTRAC and concluding with Tale Of Us & Mano Le Tough’s edit of Caribou‘s renowned Can’t Do Without You, Take Me To Your Paradise is undoubtedly the perfect title for LCAW’s latest mix. The young producer, who was recently featured in our Slicing Into Tropical House piece, clearly has a knack for producing as well as mixing and matching the most pleasant tunes.
