Welcome back nu disco lovers the world over! I’m back at a desk job which means that music discovery is at an all time high aboard the S.S. That New Nu. But I’m all about the cream of the crop so I’ve paired a hugely productive week down to just nine of the most eargasmic heaters from the world of nu disco, indie dance and deep house. No need to wait there’s a pool of tunes awaiting, let’s dive in! It’s all Lemaitre doing what they do best, and that just happens to be producing the best French disco in the world right now. • The ever headline-grabbing Lemaitre is ready to level you with their latest remix. It’s a take on ‘Angels’ by Uppermost, and despite it’s name is funky in the most beautifully nasty of ways. Some echoing piano lines remain at the core of this ripper but other than that it’s all Lemaitre doing what they do best. And that just happens to be producing the best French disco in the world right now. • PWNDTIAC, ok first of all how are foreign bands coming up with such awesome and punny names? That is a beautiful combination of classic American satire and pop culture eye jabs. Anyhow their original ‘The Beach’ dances freely beside an ocean of 80s pad synths, with floating vocals to help wash down a very tasty kick line. Basically this jam is right up my alley. As an added bonus this release complete with remix by the every fiery Les Loups. It’s a stark departure, that’s almost unrecognizable in it’s opening lines. Those vocals make their way back only to get a serious deep house rerub. Disco-dancers beware, Les Loups are on the prowl. Disco-dancers beware, Les Loups are on the prowl. • A touch on the more traditional house, but no less filled with summery fun, is the latest from The Him an infectious remix Robin Schulz’s ‘Headlights’. Largely preserving the earworm vocals from the original and just ramping things up on both the tropical and big room scales, this track fills a unique void. While true trop artists like Kygo may be playing big rooms these days, their productions haven’t quite married the summer with the sensational banger as this very under the radar artist just did. Kygo may be playing big rooms these days, his productions haven’t quite married the summer with the sensational banger as this very under the radar artist just did. • Bringing things down a very chilly alley today is That’s Nice, a man garnering notoriety for his top-notch summer productions. Admittedly it’s largely taking cues from an original that seethes with icy vibes and vocals. Signature That’s Nice work still shows it’s beautiful face on this track however, with glittering synths and true funk guitar lines searing all the way through the song. • Kungs has taken a swing at a real big house smasher this week with a remix of ‘On My Way’ by Axwell /\ Ingrosso. You can hear the tracks propensity for providing explosive dynamics to gigantic, Swedish crowds. True to style, Kungs takes the epic vocals and provides us with a song that doesn’t require 5 minutes of build up to thoroughly enjoy. • Now we’re taking a true turn for the chilly; but hey, it’s a rainy weekend you’ll need something to listen to as it pours. Louis Vivet is first on the block with his large-scale, indie dance remix of ‘Dead’. When dealing with whispery vocals artists can take many routes, but one of the most underserved has to be the infectious pad synth jam technique. Without overwhelming a sound that could be so easily destroyed, Vivet takes the original beyond it’s sleepytime roots and into a much broader landscape. Adding some of your own vocals to a remix should never go unnoticed. • Wolf Saga has been producing some awesome work recently. Defining himself as a huge name in chilled house via originals, remixes, and some awesome covers (which we don’t get nearly enough of these days). His remix of Porter Robinson’s ‘Sad Machine’ continues that trend. It takes the synth swirly nature of the original to new levels, but what really made this track stick out was the clever re-sampling of the famed opening vocal. Oh and adding some of your own vocals to a remix should never go unnoticed. There’s one picture of Sam Feldt not scowling, this is it. • Let’s hype things back up a bit before we part ways again. Sam Feldt is ready to provide with his remix of Showtek’s ’90s by Nature’. Now if you’re familiar with the original you know this one will be bursting at the seams with dancey heat. I’ve seen Feldt steal shows and win fans all over the country during his tour, but if he came equipped with this track people would have completely lost it. Dance hypey lyrics? You bet. Sexy sax? Available in abundance. Huge scale production in a bite-sized package? You know you’ve got the one and only Sam Feldt. That’s all for this week, thanks again for stopping by. I’ll be working hard in the coming weeks to ramp up some very fun and original content with some of the rising stars in the world of nu disco, so be on the lookout for that. Of course if you think I missed something crucial this week be sure to hit me up on SoundCloud, or just follow along for daily updates from the world of nu disco. Happy Friday!
