Free Download: Voxels – ‘Last Wrong’ New EP set for release on Enchufada, 24th Sept

OPORTO HOUSE HEADS VOXELS TURN UP THE SUMMERY VIBES FOR THEIR BRAND NEW EP ON ENCHUFADA
This has been a very busy year for Voxels, a Portuguese production duo who keeps bringing warm and summery house vibes to the forefront of today’s electronic music scene. After releasing a few EPs and remixing the likes of Buraka Som Sistema, Pedro Chamorra and Pedro Pinto have finally delivered the follow-up to their acclaimed Enchufada debut – the smooth and sexy ‘Nasty’ EP, released last March – by creating a two-track 120 bpm affair which oozes tropical warmth and bittersweet house nostalgia, making it the perfect soundtrack to remember all the fun you had this Summer.  Welcome back team Voxels and get ready for the ‘Every Girl’ EP.
The latest Enchufada release starts with the title track Every Girl, which further confirms the duo’s love affair with 90’s house and pop-tinged melodies, by flexing an instantly memorable synth stab and a hypnotic vocal sample that you won’t be able to get out of your mind. We’re pretty sure you are all familiar with that feeling you get as you’re driving home after some well-deserved summer holidays in the sun and sand, and you reminisce about all the parties you went too and that special summer fling as the road takes you closer to real life. Well, Voxels are no strangers to this feeling as this track seems to capture the essence of a summer well spent.
Still true to the nostalgic vibes comes the second and last track Mayday, which is all about the big synth swells and weird glitchy noises, taking us on an intense ride without ever compromising the soulful analogue warmth that’s steadily becoming the Voxels trademark. Being a more energetic and intense take on that nostalgic end-of-summer blues, the second track’s skittering beat cuts through a pulsing bass line, police sirens and house vocals, forcing ravers to sweat it out on the most discerning dance floors.

Fra Nefarious – Crazy Weather

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 1, 2012 by E.N.

Everything about Fra Nefarious screams the 80’s, from his candy-coated keyboards, to his vocals ‘ala’ Bowie and his funky guitar riffs, but Francisco Anthony Del is from present times. Don’t call him new wave revivalist or nu-rave pioneer, he is a sign that is still okay to write dance-rock jams if you make them sound effortless and, well fun. Yes, F-U-N. ‘Crazy Weather‘ is the kind of album you can’t say no to. Each track is essentially a tractor beam, gradually pulling the listener in with a blinding array of daydream melodies and neon-hued hooks. The potential-maximizing production of Fra Nefarious, who wrote every song on the album and performed every instrument on the recording process, are a living proof that this rising star is here to stay. A trilogy of spectacular lead-off singles (“Crazy Weather,” “Leaving on a Meteor,” “Space”) certainly don’t hurt matters, either. Definitely recommended for night owls and anyone who thinks dance music should only exist in super clubs and Ibiza. So Sound Recordings. (By Sean Levisman)

The first thing that’ll strike you about Mr. Nefarious is his expressive singing voice, heavily reminiscent of early David Bowie and Bryan Ferry. And many of the tunes on his new Crazy Weather long player also hark back to those artists’ compositions from the early ’70s — “Leaving on a Meteor” and “Mountain” are pure Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie with a 21st century sheen.

But then listen to numbers like “Space” or “Supernova Star” and you’ll be transported from melancholic glam rock to the uptempo exuberance of Chic-style disco-funk. And the time machine doesn’t stop there, it keeps on going right through the ’80s, especially on the Cure-like cut “Vapor.”

Make no mistake, though, none of its retro references detract from the originality and quality of Fra Nefarious‘s songwriting and gift for catchy vocal hooks.

Escort Release “Why Oh Why” Remix MP3(free download) + LP Out Jan 31!

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 5, 2012 by E.N.

“…  Escort sounds loose and curious on this album, with even their four-minute songs feeling like dance-floor epics. “
– The New York Times

“The Best Disco Album Of 2011″
– SPIN

“The best New York disco tracks since West End Records’ early-‘80s heyday.”
– Pitchfork

Escort has been setting dance floors ablaze with their disco-infused beats, irresistibly catchy hooks and seductive live show since releasing a series of 12” singles in 2006. The seventeen-member “disco orchestra”, founded by producers Eugene Cho and Dan Balis, and fronted by lead singer Adeline Michèle, features an incredible cast of musicians who have played with everyone from indie-rock titans Arcade Fire to avant-classical luminaries Alarm Will Sound. The new “Why Oh Why” (Pounds Sterling Remix) MP3 is a dancefloor banger that dares you not to move.

Download Escort – Cameleon Chameleon (Club Remix)

With the self-titled debut album dubbed by SPIN Magazine as one of the “Best Dance Albums of 2011,” the band has received accolades ranging from Pitchfork to the New York Times as well as recently being featured on the cover of the Village Voice! Escort’s long-awaited debut LP will be released on vinyl and CD January 31st and is out oniTunes and digitally retailers now through Escort Records.

Steeped in the venerable tradition of club-land’s holy trinity, New York, Chicago, and Detroit, Escort’s self-titled new album pays homage to mutant-pop luminaries such as Kid Creole and the Coconuts & Ian Dury. While embracing the legacy of these forward-thinking but classic acts, Escort has managed to create something strikingly new. Featuring the theatrical masterpiece “Caméleon Chameleon,” the piercing horns and silky smooth vocals of “A Bright New Life” and “Makeover” which effortlessly explores the lost possibilities of another era the album also includes versions of their 12” DJ releases remixed, re-mastered, rearranged, and re-recorded specially for the LP, completing the album as a sonic experience from beginning to end.

Clubfeet ‘Last Words’ video + all remixes free download incl.Dimitri From Paris

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 4, 2011 by E.N.

Quite possibly the Southern Hemisphere’s best kept secret, Clubfeet are ready to announce their arrival to the world. The holy union of five sons of Melbourne and Cape Town (via the French Riviera), together, they create dreamy, melancholic indie-pop, that sounds just as inspiring on a club floor on a Saturday night as it does on a lazy Sunday by the sea side.
Having picked up a 7.7 on Pitchfork and all sorts of blog/tastemaker love (see Spin, Filter, Dazed, RCRDLBL, Discobelle etc) for their Gold On Gold long player (licensed by hip NYC club label Plant Music) the band have embarked on the Gold On Gold video project – www.goldongold.tv .
In collaboration with acclaimed Sydney fashion videographer Alex Goddard together they curate and plot a model studded (and at times NSFW) audio-visual path through their music, along the road creating a new way for people to experience the album. For Last Words, Alex worked with graphic designer Margaux Fraisse who produced all the typographic elements.
‘Last Words’ is the next single from the project and features remixes from legendary hedonist and French disco icon Dimitri From Paris, indie club producer Andrew Maury, aka RAC and London’s emerging nu-disco champions The C90s..

  Summer Tour Dates

 

Listen: “East West Funk” B-side MP3

“The outstanding debut album from this Brooklyn throwback act recalls a time

when the city shone with glitter and cocaine.”

– Blackbook

 

 “…a fresh take on 70s disco and filtered house with a dash of funk… elevated by Ruiz’s smoky, melancholic voice.”

– Guardian UK

 

“[front woman Nomi Ruiz] could be the most alluring pop diva since Aaliyah.”

San Francisco Bay Guardian

 

 “…the perfect soundtrack to the most stylish of transgressions on the dancefloor”

 – Under the Radar

 

“[See The] Light showcases the talented trio’s improved sound, musical variation, and keen ability to stay original and current while calling on the disco gods of the past for influence.”

– PAPER Magazine

New York City’s Jessica 6 release their debut album, See The Light, today on Peacefrog Records!  In celebration, the band has released a brand new b-side MP3 called “East West Funk”. Described by RCRD LBL as “bongos, bass, and fly-ass disco fusion” the song is perfect for your next summertime party soundtrack.

Check out the “East West Funk” MP3  HERE.

 

For an early listen of the full album, check out See The Light streaming in its entirety on AOL Spinner today!

 

See The Light opens with a classic-in-waiting, the behemoth of a single, “White Horse”, that forces you to move like a witch doctor would. “Champagne Bubbles” is the kind of gritty R&B that isn’t afraid to be as angry as it is melancholic, its piano flourishes punctuated with a heavy kick and snare. “Prisoner Of Love,” which bridges electro and freestyle, featuring a soaring vocal melody that finds Nomi and guest vocalist Antony weaving their voices around each other to a stunning effect.

 

Jessica 6 has been commanding dance floors for years, globetrotting from London to Miami, San Francisco to Santiago, Bergen to Belgrade, seduce the dancing, sweaty masses with an electrifying blend of disco, soul and R&B.  In celebration of their debut release, the band hits the road once again with their hypnotic live show, kicking off with an album release show in NYC, then hitting Philadelphia before heading West for a run that includes a stop at San Francisco’s Gay Pride stage.

“…a fresh take on 70s disco and filtered house with a dash of funk… elevated by Ruiz’s smoky, melancholic voice.”
Guardian UK

“…pop music with a disco feel and a real soulful vibe as well.  We love it!”
- PerezHilton

“… the perfect vehicle for Nomi Ruiz’s molasses thick vocals, the kind of thing that would have made Madonna in her Danceteria days swell with jealousy.”
- RCRD LBL
 
“ …one of electronic music’s most exquisite practitioner.”
- Philadelphia Inquirer
New York City’s Jessica 6 creates soul music in its purest form, no matter the tempo. Their debut album, See The Light, moves from pulsating electronic sheen to uncompromisingly rugged R&B, and back again. The band released the stunning debut single and anthem-in-waiting “White Horse” last month. Now fans can hear the new track, “Prisoner Of Love,” which bridges electro and freestyle, featuring a soaring vocal melody that finds Nomi and guest vocalist Antony weaving their voices around each other to a stunning effect.
 

Check out the “Prisoner Of Love” MP3 -Download

 

Jessica 6 is fronted by the beguiling and beautiful chanteuse Nomi Ruiz. Equal parts high-fashion and street smart, her smoky, emotive vocals are matched by her spellbinding style. Her lyrics create a world full of enraptured lovers, endless nights, fame-seekers, and broken hearts. Bassist Andrew Raposo and keyboardist Morgan Wiley deftly meld disco, hip-hop, electro and classic house, commanding you to dance while simultaneously making your heart sink.
 
See The Light opens with a classic-in-waiting, the behemoth of a single, “White Horse”, that forces you to move like a witch doctor would. “Champagne Bubbles” is the kind of gritty R&B that isn’t afraid to be as angry as it is melancholic, its piano flourishes punctuated with a heavy kick and snare.  Their debut single “Fun Girl,” a tale of desperation, fame and money, has a sinister keyboard melody that underscores the lyrics.
 
With See The Light, Jessica 6 have created a raw portrait of life in the city and of all the highs and lows that come with it. The album takes you from your stoop to the dance floor, eventually landing you in the back of a cab as the day is breaking.
