Solomun

Solomun first caught my attention with his rendition of Michael McDonald’s I Keep Forgettin’ (Every Time You’re Near). I realize this isn’t the most untouched track in the world of sampling and edits, but his version seemed to be particularly elegant. This Bosnian-born producer has contributed significantly to the European house scene ranging in style from disco to tech house. Most recently he’s released a killer remix of Kraak & Smaak’s Let’s Go Back featuring Romanthony, a catchy disco single Kackvogel, and another deep track Around with a slew of different versions.

Future Unlimited


Future Unlimited is a duo from Nashville, Tennessee with Samuel D’Amelio on the piano/pads and David Miller providing the vocals. The band has an electronic 80s vibe with lush vocals and catchy beats that will have you listening on repeat. Having released their first EP titled Golden earlier this year, they made their debut at SXSW and since then have gained musical momentum and maturation. With that being said, Future Unlimited brings to us their new single “Lightweight Eyes”, which you can nab via their website in exchange for a post or tweet. … MORE

Kodiak Fur


Miami’s got talent- not to sound like a cheeseball but it’s really true. Every few months a new act emerges from under the limestone that reminds us of the creativity hatching ’round these parts. Kodiak Fur was introduced via Twitter by band mate MRFAMILIAR and after seeing the video and reading up on them it all made sense. … MORE

Lauer

Erol Alkan, Ivan Smagghe, Todd Terje, The Revenge and Faze Action have all given Phillip Lauer aka Lauer their stamp of approval. Resident Advisor calls his music “yacht rock house” although it also has a pinch of disco. His last LP Phillips came out this past April and he recently released Tentatious, a 4 track follow-up EP with remixes by Runaway and I:Cube. … MORE

Anna Calvi


If you have yet to be captivated by Anna Calvi’s moody Patti Smith-like vocals and sultry cinematic inspired sound get to it! The London-based singer/songwriter released her self-titled, ten track debut album in early 2011 (Domino Records), composed using vintage analogue equipment. Her passion exudes through close-up lips to mic performances—sexually charged lyrics are accompanied by a haunting gaze that’s commanding, confident, and seductive. Her influences include musicians Nick Cave, David Bowie, Nina Simone, Jimi Hendrix, Django Reinhardt, Claude Debussy, along with filmmakers Wong Kar-Wai, David Lynch and Wes Anderson. Dramatic indeed, and rightfully so. … MORE

Martin Brodin

Martin Brodin is one of those names that I find on my playlist quite often but had never researched properly. I’ve always enjoyed this Swede’s unique italo-boogie-analogue stylings simply because I feel that it effectively acts as a crossover between big-sounding house and disco hits and those slightly weirder tracks that I only wish would work in the dance clubs. … MORE

No Shirt No Shoes

*UPDATE: The party will go on despite weather. They’ve moved it from the pool to the sheltered veranda within the Shore Club. Remember we don’t need no shoes or shirts!*

The No Shirt No Shoes gang and Dub Frequency crew is putting a little pool party together for us tomorrow at the Shore Club, so show up with some flip flops and sunglasses and you’ll be good to go. NSNS has been tastefully curating these events across different cities and they keep getting better and better. Tomorrow Perseus and Chris Malinchak (French Express) will be performing for free (with an easy rsvp) and Troy Kurtz and myself will be warming up the pool for you guys. Vamos! … MORE

Trails and Ways Cover Ghost Beach

A perfect midsummer pop cover and an infinitely better adaptation of the original I might add. Trails and Ways nailed it with a Spanish version of Ghost Beach’s track “Miracles”. I have to admit I wasn’t the least bit fond of the song until I heard this take on it. The Californian 4 piece makes bossa nova dream pop and after long stay in Brazil they’ve announced their trilingual full length album will be released soon. … MORE
