This month’s cool cats:
► Noah Hyde (Boise/USA)
This rising Amercian producer has amazed me with his Youth Lagoon remix about a year ago. I don’t like the word, but this track is truly epic and it doesn’t sound dated – even after a year (which is, as we all know, a long time in this industry). His latest remix is solid as well and available for your downloading pleasure.
► Crystal Fighters (London/UK)
The UK lads have their second album in the pipeline: Cave Rave will be out by the end of may and is full of alternative-dance-pop magic. You can get the Gigamesh remix of You & I for free.
► The Chainsmokers (New York/USA)
I have to admit that I’ve never heard of them before their excellent Phoenix remix. They call their style “Indie Progressive House” which, I think, is pretty accurate. Not everything they do is my cup of tea, because some tracks have this huge big-ooom-house vibe, but as I said before – the Phoenix remix is excellent and in my opinion way better then the original track.
► Blende (London/UK)
You can’t run from Blende because he always delivers great stuff. Now you can download his fantastic remix for Azari & III. This is excactly how a disco tune in 2013 should sound like. Be sure to check out his latest EP Synapse as well.
► Attari (Brussels/Belgium)
Attari aka Renaud Deru, formerly of Mustang can do nothing wrong at the moment. His remix of the Propellers’ Midnight Kiss is a bass-driven indie-dance bastard with a 90’s clectroclash vibe and some very neat vocals. The track is yours for the price of a like.
