Meanderthals switches things up a little bit on 317 today. Since we’re nearing the end of the year for the student populous, exams are getting tight, papers even more strenuous, I decided to indulge with something a little more melodic and rhythmic with the intent to keep the sound real light. Meanderthals Desire Lines fits this agenda. It combines dimensions from acoustic soft rock, underlying funk, with the great taste of some retro club jazz. Lately it has been helping me get through some long hours but it’s an instrumental worth playing any hour of the day. Play it all the way through before deciding how you feel. The jazz fade-out is sexy. Oh and they are brand-spanking new making it even more worth the listen.
Our friends from NY in Gentleman Thieves hit us up with a new track that everyone should be hitting hard. Their sound is developing strong and varies greatly from the previous tracks we enclosed earlier in the year. Despite this being a new track it is very nostalgic to me. It instantly creates a mellow dance mood. Hopefully you enjoy this exclusive track as much as we do.
Discodust along with Disco Workout recently helped introduce us to Johnny Jewel, the self-made genius behind such side projects as chromatics, glass candy, and italians do it better. While all projects are unique and offer something new… Jewel has finally found an extraordinary vocalist in Megan Louise in the new project Desire. The new prominent single out of a set of five leaked by the new duo entitled, If I Can’t Hold You is a delightful mix of haunting disco. Watch out for Desire in the future as Jewel is sure to spin up some talent with Megan alongside.
The Hundred In The Hands track Dressed in Dresden has been tossed around the blogosphere countless amount of times over the past few months. Hype is a great way of proving this through a simple search. However, the Jacques Renault remix tosses up a funky fresh remix that is worth treating your ears too. He funks out the orig a bit more and makes it a little bit more danceable to appease us all.
