We got caught slipping and forgot to share this newly released gem with you. The below is the debut EP from Californian ZHU, who made his mark on the scene with his wildly popular mashup “Moves Like Ms. Jackson.” He’s become a pretty well known producer ever since, and this EP is proof that he’s here to shake things up a bit. It seems like spring has truly arrived in NYC, so this bundle of tasty tracks is going to do us some good as we buckle down for rooftop season with good friends and refreshing cocktails. Support this talented producer grab a copy of the EP on iTunes, go treat yoself.
By now you should be familiar with our new project “Tropix,” where we stash away the grooviest tropical beats for your listening pleasure. The below is a little playlist especially curated by the Coconut Salesman to whet your palate as you head into the four-day weekend. All the tunes are available for free download btw, take advantage.
Here’s the second single “1998” pulled from Chet Faker's album “Built On Glass.” This is out now on Future Classic/Downtown Records and you can certainly cop your own copy on iTunes.
We used to be friends
We used to be in a circle
I don’t understand
What have I become to you
Take my good word
Turn it backwards
Turn your back on me
Is it absurd
For me to hurt
When everything else is fading
Beautiful music from 20-year old French producer/saxophonist Loïc De Lassablière better known as MOI. This guy is creating magical sounds out in Lyon and he’s managed to stay under the radar all along. Don’t be alarmed when you start seeing his name on every music blog. This is perfect music for a rainy day like today, head over to his Soundcloud page to treat yourself to some freebies. Happy listening.
“Julie Bergan is a 19 year old singer and songwriter from Norway. After gaining attention from the Norwegian music industry through various collaborations and her cover-songs on YouTube, she signed a deal with Warner Music in the fall of 2013. She has been named one of the most exciting, up and coming, pop artists from the Nordics with descriptions like ‘The Nordic Demi Lovato’. In January this year she released her debut-single, the platinum selling track “Younger”. To celebrate the success of ‘Younger’, and the fact that spring is finally here, Julie is now following up all the success with a fresh new remix from Oliver Nelson.”
The guys over at Perfect Havoc are working hard to get Oliver Nelson stateside, needless to say we’re excited about that and are very much looking forward to seeing in action in NYC soon.
This month’s installment of “Claire’s Favorites” is a bit earlier than usual, what can we say, we just get too much pleasure from sharing good tunes with you. This one has sunshine and beach dancing stamped from all over it, we want to get you in shape and ready for the fun weather as it is just around the corner. You’ll find some familiar names in there like Moon Boots, Kaytranada Monitor 66, but I’m pretty sure it’s the first time Roosevelt hast been featured in one, same goes for Vario Volinski, I’m sure you’ll fall in lover their sounds. As always, some of those tracks are up for free DL on Soundcloud, be sure to jump on that. Happy Dancing!
We’ve been all about The Mast ever since our good friend over at Portadelphia put us on. We’ve been to many of their local shows, we even got to write a little piece about their Album release party a few months back, you get the idea, we REALLY like The Mast. So you understand we wouldn’t pass on the opportunity to have another post about them. The above is the brand new video for their single “Nuclear Dragon,” you’ll enjoy it. If you haven’t had a chance to see this duo live yet, they’re opening for Goldroom at Bowery Ballroom (NYC) on June 27th, we highly recommend you grab a pair of tickets and treat a lucky girl/gal to what is sure to be an unforgettable night. These guys know how to put the show, and they have talent to back it up, you’ll come back and thank us later.
We’ve been saving these tunes for you in hope to boost up your energy from what I’m sure I’ve been a draining work week. First up is a new single “Change You” from London-based artist Boy In A Movie, his EP “Feel” will be released on March 31st, stay on the lookout for it, it’ll be a tasty one. Finnish duo Femme En Fourrure gave “Flame” a sensual makeover. These guys are known for their dark vibes, and this is accented all throughout this remix. Listen at your own risk!
This one is the firs original single from Blak Movie, a British duo comprises of Boy In A Movie (see first track) and Debian Blak. Keep your ears from this young collaboration, I’m sure we’ll get a lot more tunes from them soon. To wrap it up, we have a spanking nu disco remix from LA-based producer by way of France, Thomas Toccafondi (Fishing Vest). This tune has beach dancing written all over it, and soon we’ll be able to do just that while rocking the fliest of Hawaiian shirts, which is exactly what Fishing Vest wants from us.

Roosevelt (Marius Lauber) continues his hot streak by sharing this fresh new remix for Norwegian musician Truls. You probably haven’t heard much of Truls or his music mainly because his latest self-titled EP was only made available in Norway, selfish, I know. Thanks to Roosevelt though, we can get a taste of what his music sounds like, sort of. Roosevelt definitely had his way with this tune, transforming it into a dance floor crusher, with lots of beautiful synth work. Enjoy it, with the way things are moving, I’m sure we’ll get another track from Roosevelt very soon.
Boom, here are three great tracks to help you close out your Sunday as you prepare yourself to resume cubicle life tomorrow. The first goodie is from up and coming Virginia-based producer Alicks~ and it’s appropriately titled “Outside,” perfect anthem for a Sunday night drive. Check out his Soundcloud page, there’s a lot more where this one came from.
This puppy is pulled from Kiwi producer Broods’ self-titled EP. The soothing vocals on this track will send you to a very special place, a really happy place, a place that will help you escape the fact that the weekend is over, and you must return to being an adult. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can buy the whole EP, it’s available on iTunes. …and then there was Bearson, "Make Love" isn’t the most recent remix from the 18 year-old Norwegian Producer but I find the most appropriate for a Sunday night. His other projects are super fire and have been received very well, like 400k plays in a month well, so be sure to check ‘em out too, you won’t be disappointed. Happy Listening! bonus track: French producer Neus adds some disco flare to Skateboard P’s vastly popular single “Happy.” Enjoy!

Brand new dancefloor-crushing original single from Kapla, half of NYC electro duo Modern Machines.

From Aix-en-Provence with groove:
"I’m glad to present to you ‘Flocon de Neige’, ‘Snowflake’ if you prefer. Every musician has his techniques when we have a lack of inspiration. Personally, I always thought that music comes from silence, so when I can’t make any music, I find a quiet place, sit down, and wait for the music to come to me. I did that once, in my garden, and then those tiny bells appeared. When I heard it perfectly, I ran to my studio to write it down. It reminded me of a snowflake’s purity by his sonority, and it’s way to dance with the wind by his groove. ‘Flocon de Neige’ was born… I hope you will like it !"
I’m not sure you’ll be able to find a groovier remix of this song anywhere, and it’s been remixed exhaustively. From our little research, this is the first remix from Canadian producer Elkoe and he absolutely ripped it. This is how you make an entrance folks, this right here is how you leave a lasting first impression. Remember to exchange a Facebook like for that free download, you’re gonna want it.
