After the release of the all-amazing Phosphenes EP last year, Jägerverb has joined forces with Belgian imprint Lektroluv once again for another big release. Aptly titled Titan EP, his latest opus is a solid three-track package consisting of the title song Titan, a gritty club track that does its name justice, Daisy Dukes, a UK garage-inspired jam starting out rather harmlessly but soon hitting you with a rock-solid drop and Betamax, my favorite cut on the release, putting a twist on garage sounds and warehouse basslines.
The EP will be out in exactly two weeks, so keep your eyes on Beatport on May 20th. Also if you’ve got a spare minute head over to the full set on Lektroluv’s SoundCloud page for what’s got to be the most hilarious press release I’ve read in quite a while…
Alright, here’s some funky indie-dance to cheer up a hectic Monday evening: Swiss producer Ryan Riot (yes, the guy who’s hosting The Indie-Dance Report mixtape series each and every month here on discodemons.net from now on) recently put his magic remix fingerprint on The Other Tribe’s catchy tune We Should Be Dancing, taking things to the next level in terms of synth arpeggiator awesomeness. With early support by the likes of Lifelike, Punks Jump Up and Jerry Bouthier, you’ll probably be hearing this cheerful little song a lot in the future…
Scotland’s fastest rising stars in synth pop CHVRCHES have remixed US pop duo MS MR‘s new single Hurricane from their debut album Secondhand Rapture, turning the slow and rather dark original into an upbeat homage to the glittering age of pastel color suits and bright synth stabs over slapping basslines. So good.
“I fucking missed you guys!” – I usually try not to read the comments when playing music on SoundCloud because most of the time they’re either written by people who refer to complete strangers on the internet as their “bros” (which I can’t stand, seriously) or douchebags trying to promote their mediocre music by spamming other people’s brilliant music. This comment somehow got me, though. To be honest, I fucking missed these guys, too. In fact, I fucking miss this kind of music.
This kind of music: electro anno 2007 – that golden era of (modern) dance music, when the abbreviation “EDM” did not exist in the typical 16-year-old’s vocabulary. When bangers could be bangers without cheesy trance synths, and failed wannabe pop stars yelling over the breaks at the top of their voice. When musical creativity was deemed more important than technical perfection in the production process. Obviously I could go on for hours now about how everything was better back then, but instead I’ll just say how much I miss this kind of music.
I fucking miss it.

Remember Woodcut? After introducing themselves to the world three months ago the two brothers from different mothers have been quite busy: a mixtape for Supreme Mag, DJ sets all over Austria and fresh previews on SoundCloud. In the meantime, they have secured a release on UK-based label Deep Edition Recordings for their amazing track Sometimes, with Rekreation and Brame on remix duties and a new original track titled I Don’t on the B-side. Out on June 3rd.
Hey peeps, thanks for coming by. My name is Rainer (or Ryan Riot when the night starts) and I’m a producer and DJ from Zuerich, Switzerland. I know Jakob Disco Demons for a few years now and by the beginning of this year he asked me if wanna contribute something on his infamous blog every then and when. Well, here I am.
I’m happy to share my monthly mixtape series with you guys. The Indie-Dance Report contains my favourite Indie-Dance (no shit?), Nu-Disco and Electropop tracks of the current month. I will also pick out some artists from each mix which I think deserve more attention. If you think you did something awesome by yourself, let me know about and upload it to my Soundcloud Dropbox. I hope you guys find something you like. Enjoy.

In New Bass We Trust: Bass+ and discodemons.net are looking for new DJs in town to rock the Wall Of Bass at SUB Club at the next Bass+ party on Friday, May 24th 2013. If you think you’ve got what it takes, follow these three steps to participate in the contest. Good luck!
✔ Record a mix. It should be about 30 minutes long, apart from that there are no restrictions to your creativity. However, this contest is held by a bass club, so if you’re into progressive trance please reconsider your chances here.
✔ Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org until May 10. Please use SoundCloud, WeTransfer or a similar service to submit your mix. The subject line of your email should be “In New Bass We Trust” and the email should include your full name, phone number and maybe a few details about yourself: – where are you from? – when did you start DJing? – what equipment do you need?
✔ Play the Wall Of Bass on May 24. The best mixes will be presented here on the blog, and one winner will be selected to play at SUB Club in Wiener Neustadt on May 24 along with the Bass+ Residents and Disco Demons. Bonus: you get 5 guestlist slots so you can bring your friends too.
Steamy late-night vibes on Poison Lips, flying dogs on Poney, Part One, hidden toilet cameras on Second Lives and steroid-induced deaths on Stamina: Vitalic has never been known for mediocre music videos – and the most recent one is certainly no exception to that rule.
Directed by Romain Chassaing (responsible for Pony Pony Run Run and Housse The Racket music videos), the official video for the latest single Fade Away could easily pass as a cinematic short film – a fact Vimeo promptly honored by including it in their “Staff Picks” playlist. A group of hit men (and women) chasing each other over a mysterious black suitcase, trapped in an infinite loop of time (obviously I can not even begin to recite the number of movies that are being referenced here). The video has been around for a week in fact, shout-out to Harder Blogger Faster for the post, I might have missed it if it wasn’t for them.
