In late 2009 Frederik Olufsen launched Denmarks hottest electro label Royal Fetish Recordings.
Prince Club came to me the other day through an awesome rendition of Foals’ Blue Blood. It’s a fantastic dreamy mix that harnesses the softer side of the original. The added back-beat gives the track a little bit more flavour all while clubbing it up a little with the added light synth. The Montreal duo are releasing a new EP very soon off Discobelle Records. Stay tuned here for that.
Send these guys some love via facebook.

Broke One hit us up with his own tribute to the Old School. It is excellent, so fresh and innovative! I have been in a bit of a lull lately so Tribute To An Era really hits home for me with its soft eclectic segments. It’s a slight deviation from the past but it seems he can handle anything he puts his mind too. Send him some love on facebook.

One of Top Billin’s newest signings, Sean Roman, is back making some noise. The Toronto-based DJ and producer has it all. These couple of tracks showcase the unique raw ability Roman puts into his disco-house instrumentals. Where Is My Money & Sore + Fear are no exception. They both radiate a lovely combination of funky house flare.

Barretso has sent us his latest remix to the debut single from Gemini Club’s Ghost. It’s so good and typical Barretso, meaning high power and high energy kinda music. Those who dig the Chilean producers beats should hit up the archives for more great music while staying tuned here for the official release date regarding the original single.
In sweaty loft parties, packed dance clubs, rock n’ roll joints and virtually anyplace with speakers you’ll find Gemini Club, who URChicago called “Chicago’s rising star electro-indie-rock act.” By fusing the energetic and precise aspects of DJing with live vocals, synthesizers, guitars and bass the trio is steadily redefining what “live” means. Hit up their myspace for the “live” version of Ghost.
Moonchild is back! He hooked us with Girl and a dirty MJ mix earlier this year so I have been anxiously awaiting some new beats from the Sydney-based mastermind. Navigator brings just what I needed. It’s one hot, riveting disco-house jam.
The one and only Moonchild will be rocking Australia all year with a handful of show dates. Those stopping in the Aussie nation next month should definitely bring their party to one of his shows. If you don’t, yous a fool!

Popskarr recently released a Cassius remix to I Love You So off the Rawkers EP. Their take on it is pretty fantastic. It’s a mellowed-out version of the original (which is also fantastic, and can be found on hype machine). Hypnotic and enticing, the combo created by the Cape town boys is so catchy you will need a copy after the first listen. And since we are so close to Halloween, you may want to pencil this into the playlist for around 1 AM. For more about Popskarr read the passage below.
Popskarr are an Electronic/Nu-Disco/Chill Wave/ Misty pop (call it what you want) band from Cape town South Africa. Popskarr was started in early 2009 and consists of Yannick Ilunga and Terrence Pearce. They met after Yannick went to a show that Terrence was Djing at and introduced himself after the show. After a while Yannick met Spoek Mathambo (Sweat X/Playdoe) whom ironically suggested that he meet with Terrence. Yannick could sing and play guitar whilst Terrence could produce the tracks, alas, Popskarr was born…. They have been compared to the likes of New Order, Depeche Mode, Joy Division, Bloc Party and many other Synth Pop electronic acts. They have been feature on numerous international blogs, including LA based Dreamwave Label Binary Entertainment.
In a short time being together, they have played with big names like, The Dirty Skirts, Desmond and the tutus, Phfat, The Real Estate Agents, Jack Parow at the Design Indaba launch party and have done remixes for international acts like Polygon Palace, Short Circuit, Penguin Prison, We Have Band, Monarchy and soon to be released, The Detachments. Popskarr keep growing and growing with every new track they create, getting closer to the sound that is Popskarr. They are a band that can truely claim they are taking South African music in a different and fresh direction.
