I know we’ve already shared some magnificent remixes of Lorde’s triumphant hit single Green Light these past weeks, but never would I have guessed the next can’t miss edit would come by way of electro funk wizards Chromeo! Get ready to bust out your best disco dance moves as we launch into this French house intoned, airy brisk transformation. Chromeo’s “green light” is a neon green, and it reflects brilliantly off of a revolving mirror ball hanging high above our heads. Not only am I now reminded how much I miss Chromeo’s swaggering grooves, but my excitement for Lorde’s new album Melodrama burns even more intense. Melodrama arrives soon on June 16th.
Parisian producer Monsieur Adi, the man who previously gave us ravishing remixes of the likes of Lana Del Rey, Smallpools, and more, returns with his take on The Weeknd’s supermassive collaboration with Daft Punk. That’s right, Monsieur Adi brings the French touch to Starboy, and it’s glorious. The intense and extravagant makeover whisks us away on a cinematic roller coaster ride with its bouncy energy and lavish strings. Hit up some of Monsieur Adi’s other tracks on Soundcloud, here.
I can’t get enough of the new Phoenix since it dropped yesterday. It’s literally left me smiling for hours on end. The French rock heroes are more lustrously vibrant than ever on J-Boy, a new wavey, italo disco-y, hyper jubilant, feverish glinting spectacular. It sparkles and twinkles, shimmers and swirls, twirling us around within its whirlpool of dizzying euphoria. J-Boy brings to mind some of M83′s tunes off recent album Junk. As it turns out, the long time, much loved French house purveyors have described their forthcoming album Ti Amo as being related to “summer and Italian discos”, so the M83 Junk comparison isn’t too far off the mark. A summer of effulgent italowave and retro disco sounds more than splendid to me. Ti Amo arrives on June 9th.
Bob Moses’ music is in itself brilliant on its own. The Canadian electronic duo gave us one of the best albums of 2015 in critically acclaimed Days Gone By, and songs from the album continue to inspire some sensational remixes. RAC won a Grammy for his incredible edit of Tearing Me Up. Now Canadian sibling duo Love Thy Brother returns with their superb take on Days Gone By cut Like It Or Not. Deep pumping disco house meets lavish entrancing techno on their magnificent remix, a meditative indulgence whose sweet nectar evokes mellower Justice and Rüfüs du Sol’s more introspective pieces. Love Thy Brother says that the track is the first of a series of remixes they made for their new live show launching soon. Let’s hope they take that show on the road and hit up San Francisco.
