New Wave

Let Me Go Home! [2 For 1 Tuesday]

Posted on Updated on

Van She are delightfully good. They that raw ability with the synth and know how to sparkle up any track. It’s hypnotic. This mix to Vandroid’s Master & Slave is no exception. Between the vocals, the tempo changes, the dragging layers and transitions, this track fits the definition of being epic. I sure have missed you Van She.

Vandroid – Master & Slave (Van She Tech Remix)

I’m really liking this joyous Myndset remix right now. I mean it really does maintain the vocal flavour from the original but it’s just so damn catchy, it’s hard not to like it.

PLUS, it reminds me of good ol’ home, now ain’t that pleasant. Check out more Myndset remixes on Soundcloud!

Jamaica

Posted on Updated on

Wednesday getting you down? Need something catchy and uplifting to brighten your day? How about something Short and Entertaining?

If you answered yes to any of the above it’s time to get excited because Jamaica’s beats are back. Although being a first on here, I’m sure the catchy, rhythmic explosion in Jamaica’s New Wave will cause a ripple in those lusting after infectious indie dance beats. To those addicted to blogs Jamaica will not be new to you at all. They always have a big sound and people have come to love them for it.

The project consists of Antoine Hilaire on vocals, Florent Lyonnet on bass/vocals, and sometimes the very talented David Aknin lends a helping hand on drums. Together they are more than just good. Check out their myspace for some more audio samples or head over to beatport to grab your very own copies.

Active Child [Take Shelter]

Posted on Updated on

Active Child released a new EP with Merok last May. One of the first singles off it is a track called Take Shelter. Within the first minute I was blown away. Wishing I had heard this back when the EP was brand new I had to go and immediately check it out.

The guys have a large surf/new wave sound that deviates slightly from what you are about to hear below. Even still, I wouldn’t want any other song to represent this amazing EP. If you haven’t had a chance, check it out here along with a handful of other terrific releases from Active Child.

Android Automatic – Stayed Too Late + Lost In The Streets

Posted on Updated on

Android Automatic dropped us a line a little while ago introducing a few tracks of his to be featured on his new EP After Summer. The DJ / Producer from Detroit, Michigan first blew us away originally with The Blue Attack (Green Remix) and has now has hit us with a few more excellent light jams. I love his style.

Stay tuned here for more details on the upcoming album. People can also find these tracks and more (available for free!) on Android Automatic’s fairtilzer page.

FM Attack are like no other, they’re Canadian and they know how to create a disco melody. The Vancouver- based producers have strewn together some fine new wave, disco-house and electro tracks over the past months and now they’re only getting better. Check out some of their latest as well as the magnificent Astrowave EP available here off Tonite Records.

… It’s one of the best snapshots of a big historical moment… kinda… if you’re a baseball fan.  Showing what should have been the first Triple Play to happen in the World Series since 1920 if the call wasn’t blown by the second-base umpire. SI’s Steve Rushin describes the story here.

FM Attack [Amazing.]

FM Attack are a pretty special New-Wave/Disco-House project hailing from the mountainous region of British Columbia, Canada. I love how well they redefine their own unique section within each genre.

They recently came back to my radar through a new remix Looking At The Stars featured found on Sally Shapiro and Johan Agebjörn’s new remix album My Guilty Pleasure. Although I have yet to listen to it completely there’s no denying the talent on-board who assisted in the compilation: check it for remixes from Boat Club, Bottin, Love Lock, and of course the one and only FM Attack.

If you’re new to FM Attack, they have produced some decent stuff in the past. Check out some of their archives enclosed below.
