★ Above & Beyond – Miracle

My absolute favorite off the new Above & Beyond Acoustic album is “Miracle”. Its delicate beauty truly shows off the talents of Tony (playing guitar), Paavo (cello), and Jono (vibraphone) and their newly-adapted album in a remarkable way. Couldn’t sleep without sharing.

Sync Deep

Recently fallen hard for these deep house tracks, both remixes and originals. Perfect for cold, moody, weekday commutes, these beats deliver soothing relief from crying babies, flat tires, and the rest of life’s occasional crap.

I often cringe at the idea of classic songs being remixed, but once in a while one comes along that knocks your socks off. The Golden Pony had the ingenuity to introduce a disco beat to “Sound of Silence” by Simon & Garfunkel, transforming a somber tune into one that is upbeat and groovy… Bravo! Also, love the French Bulldog.

♬ Simon & Garfunkel – Sound of Silence (The Golden Pony Remix)

Their remix of “Fuck the Pain Away” by Peaches combines deep house and funk beautifully. I’ll also take the excuse to be obsessed with this high school throwback all over again!

I had the pleasure of meeting Trevor Bones of Gotta Dance Dirty when he spun at Harlot in San Francisco last weekend. When asked for his favorite producers, he recommended Tchami, and I can definitely see why. Tchami is a Parisian producer whose tracks have a specific sound and energy that I can only describe as unique, addicting and dance-inducing. The lack of information on him makes him seem a bit mysterious but I have no doubt that this is one cool dude. If you go to his Janet Jackson remix on SoundCloud and click “Filet Mignon” you will download a secret mixtape…awesome.

From myself and a few other lucky municipal employees, happy snow day! Really vibing to the deep house beat of the two Parisian deejs that make up Montmartre, and now I want to watch James Bond again. Yum. See you tomorrow.

I learned about Motez when “Take Off” was featured in one of Shadow Child’s mixes. Not surprisingly, Dave Spoon (aka Shadow Child) snatched up the talented Bahgdad-born, Aussie transplant for his new label Food Music.  While his original work is fantastic, some of my favorite tracks of his are remixes of popular songs like Frank Ocean‘s “Thinkin’ Bout You”. With big-name artists already lining up to have Motez work his magic on their tunes, I think he is a producer to watch out for.

♬ Motez – Take Off
★ Frank Ocean – Thinkin’ Bout You (Motez Edit)

Its hard to get someone to want to break it down in a coffee shop, but that’s exactly what’s happening right now as I’m typing this and listening to Motez’ newest release: “Gas Pedal (Motez Edit)” by Sage the Gemini. I’ll definitely be listening to this track on repeat.

One of my favorite aspects of electronic music gaining popularity is the influx of genre-merging. Many producers, such as Australia’s Ta-Ku, stem from a different musical background and are bringing a fresh perspective to the worn-out “eat sleep rave repeat”. Ta-ku can cut ‘n’ chop hip hop beats like nobody’s business, and takes a refreshingly groovy spin on electronic tracks. Check out his take on the UK electronic duo, AlunaGeorge:

★ AlunaGeorge – Best Be Believing (Ta-ku Remix)

His debut album Songs to Break Up To showcases Ta-Ku’s softer side and reminds us that electronic music can break away from big-room drops and oozy soul. My favorite song from his album is “We Were in Love”, a lo-fi lounge track with addicting vocal loops…

♬ Ta-Ku – We Were In Love
