At my office, it’s a bit of a Friday tradition to break out this mix to signal its time to start drinking for the weekend. Hard to believe GTA Vice City is 15 years old (the video game was release in 2002) and this mix is not only hilarious but filled with quality grooves. Happy Friday peeps! Shootout to the TicketSwap office crew for keeping me sane
Amadou & Mariam are a blind couple from Mali, who happen to make amazing music filled with wonderful interplay between their beautiful voices. (I recommend listening to their album Dimanche a Bamako). This remix from producer Bruno ‘Patchworks’ Horvart aka VOILAAA is the perfect homage, with an extra dose of disco funkiness. Read more →
Shoutout to Russians to being the craziest muthaf***ers on earth. Just when you thought the reversed music video was played out, Director Ilya Naishuller, pulls this shit. Amazing.
Kraak & Smaak’s 2016 album, Juicy Fruit, was wonderfully fresh and funky, not only because of the original tracks but also the plethora of remixes it birthed. The latest of those is this downtempo flip from accomplished frenchies, Fhin. Everything here is wonderfully calculated from the little guitar melody to the shuddering synth drop.
Yung Bae pulls off the unfathomable: making a upbeat vibe out of a Rich Chigga song. The remix is a total flip of the original. As one Soundcloud commenter so eloquently put it, “It’s Disco Chigga”. Check out his Bandcamp for a B Side album full of more Yung Bae silliness.
Another ridiculous banger from Yung Bae:
Can’t enough of this beat from Castelluzzo. Everything is on point: the meandering guitar, the coasting synths, the snappy drums and lazy bassline. Magical sounds.
In just 2 minutes, Light House knocks down the door with some punchy horns and some smooth bass. If only the track was a wee bit longer! Vibes.
This post isn’t really about Snacks (the House/Disco duo are definitely worth your attention tho) but more about Street Player, a youtube channel, that chooses dope House tracks, awesome local dancers and sets them up to dance in the middle of chaos that London, Paris or any city. It takes a lot of guts to dance in the middle of a dancefloor let alone the busy Southbank walkway but dancer Dechen Gendun absolutely kills it. Big ups to her, Street Player (subscribe to them, they deserve more followers!) and the Snacks boys for the whole spectacle!
