Today is a bit of a special one. We have a free track for you of course but today its the free bonus track to Sixth Avenue Express’s new Ep with us titled ‘I See’ which has just come out on vinyl. This is our 11th vinyl to date and we hope you like it.
Sixth Avenue Express have been gathering a lot of momentum recently with their mid tempo, emotionally charged productions striking a note with a larger and larger audience. While they have put out releases across a plethora of labels their home has always been at House of Disco Records and thats where SAE is now releasing their next solo EP titled ‘I See’. Full of the clever touches and the warmth you’ve come to expect from them this EP delivers on every front.
As the cold chill invades we’re still here dancing…..of course. This week we have a 3-way surprise! LUXXURY has been giving away an edit a week and these are the three we think stand out. A great resource for slo-mo Dj’s
1.First up, a warm edit of the ever lasting jam ‘Night Fever’ by the Bee Gees. Unexpectedly but pleasantly, this goes a more dubbed out hypnotic route and is more of a journey than the original. You get off at the end of your trip only to find yourself scrolling back to the play button simply to start your journey all over again.
2. My favourite of the bunch. These days edits and remix’s are hardly few and far between, and taking on tracks like this is a taste minefield, less is more. Making this one Dj friendly seems to have been the brief with a super useful into and outtro. Without too much tinkering to the iconic voice’s of Simon and Garfunkel bar a serious cutdown of verses, Luxxury has turned this supreme folk piece on its head and packed it with his very own subtle details without removing its heart. Although slow, just remember, slow motions better than no motion ‘folks’.
3. Last but by no means least, some Madonna vibes to really get things all hot and sexy and laced in nostalgia. By now you will have become accustomed to the slow rolling baselines Luxxury leans on and this fits nicely with this iconic original. The tracks broken up flawlessly and overlapped with uplifting claps and hi-hats to provide a more current interpretation, if ever a tracked described daytime disco so effortlessly then this would be it.
Lovebirds has been a firm favourite of ours for a long time. Totally dependable for solid productions he’s just given away an edit he did back in 2011 as he’s seen a version of the same original by Ninetoes exploded in Ibiza this year. This version doesn’t rely on the Caribbean steel drum part as heavily but still packs just as big a punch and is guaranteed to whip you into a sweaty mess on the dancefloor. It’s a shame this didn’t see the light of day earlier as its got some serious clout, but better late than never.
To celebrate hitting 10,000 followers on Soundcloud our housemates Monitor 66 are giving away a typically beautiful and deep weapon. ‘Kordial’ reeks of a Swedish Autumn with a dark clarity that is both fresh and breezy, packed with clever subtleties and details. They have been on fire recently and their productions are getting better and better. Usually their tracks are designed for sunsets but I would say this one is for after dark shenanigans.
We’re always pretty excited when we see our buddy Mr Tichauer giving away something. Never a man for putting out something that isn’t to the highest standard ‘I’ll Let You Go’ is no exception. Some clever dynamics make for a track designed to be listened to in a fast moving vehicle, or maybe you could just spin around really quick. Some nostalgic narration is offset by a female vocal and there are some beautiful peaks and not many troughs……good man Isaac, it’s got me feeling all pensive!
