Straight from the Strathcona Ruins

Posted on Updated on

Alright, I have a lot to show off so I’m just going to get down to business. There’s a lot here so take your time with the write-ups or go straight to downloading. Everything below has been carefully combed through to bring you a variety of goodness.

The release of Little Boots‘s New In Town is on the horizon with her recently seeking publicity through a new music video and some great new mixes to the debut single. The Golden Filter took this track and stellarized it. I don’t care if I have to make up words to get the point across. Bottom line is its good, and since I also don’t need to introduce The Golden Filter, here’s the magic:

Little Boots – New In Town (The Golden Filter Remix)

Heads We Dance used Little Boots in their latest production as well. It’s bordering on the indie-pop side and splits from the electro scene. Not typically my cup of tea but its mad catchy and some of you may dig it.

I stumbled across the production version of Van She‘s remix to Groove Armada’s Drop The Tough thanks to ohh crappp. We posted this track earlier under the Bacardi B-Live program release. B-Live also released an unbelievable remix by The Twelves to Groove Armada if you missed it. Van She’s version is still spectacular, and the new quality and slight variation from the version I previously knew, brought it back to a prominent position in my library.

Idiosyncracies by Kris Menace releases on May 15. However, I’ve been lucky enough to stumble across a few excellent tracks that will make an appearance on the 37 track, 3 CD album. Kris Menace is a phenom and his sound and history should speak for itself. These tracks are pretty gold. Get em while you can tho, DMCA may be after us for this- but until then…

Kris Menace – Lightning

Kris Menace – Affinity

N.A.S.A.‘s track Gifted was steadily going around the internet before Aston Shuffle touched it up. I didn’t like it before, but I like it now. Regardless, the genre mix-up by tossing in vibes from a bunch of contributors is impressive in itself.

Calvin Harris had another new remix drop recently that is great. I may be a little biased loving most of the new stuff Harris is making but check this and tell me I’m wrong. It’s a little off from the stuff we recently recognize him by with but it still is a good mix all the way through. Always worth checking out.

Passion Pit – The Reeling (Calvin Harris Remix)

This next track borders between house and electro while having some haunting melodic vocals from Peaches. The mix is pretty sharp. Peaches is coming into some Canadian areas in the future if this hits the spot for you.

4 Peaches – I Feel Cream

Stumbling across the internet recovering from a cold last week led me to a couple house beats I enjoyed so here’s a little taste of that action:

Rampage – Loving U Is Easy
Satoshi Tomiie – Glow (Spirit Catcher Remix)
Bad Boy Bill – Falling Anthem (Herves We Are A Disaster Remix)
Ed Solo – Age Of Dub (Sludge 001)

Just to end things off on a ligther and more positive note.  VEGA made a lot of noise the past week with their track No Reasons. It’s a great feel good track, perfect and fitting for the dance floor all summer long. They have a real disco vibe, some delightful groovin synth, and great hair. If you haven’t caught it already, we’re happy to introduce you to No Reasons.
