Bogota’s Nuclear Digital Transistor un-earth an early Aught’s dance-classic from VHS Or Beta and give it a funky, acid-flavored remix. Vintage percussion and layers of analog synth riffs create an Italo-Disco inspired bed for those familiar and catchy vocal refrains to flitter upon before plunging into a filtered break down. Cop this free download and be sure to check out their Soundcloud for additional downloads.

Editor’s Kutz returns in 2016 with the seventh installment of it’s highly sought-after and extremely high-quality edit series. Assembling an all-star cast of heavy hitters and new-comers, label founder, Vinyladdicted, drops in first with his looped out, disco-house burner, “Shining Bright.” Chunky guitar riffs and thick bass grooves loop to perfection before plunging into a lovely, yacht-rock vocal chorus that’s sure to light up any disco loving dance floor. Dan Johnson displays his skills on the A2 with “Love Affair,” a beefed up take on the classic Jimmy Ross anthem while Get Down Edits and Osmose take over the B-side for some groovy beatdown sounds. GDE do a lovely job reworking a jazz-funk cover of Bobby Womack’s “Stop On By,” while the Smokecloud boss-man lays down the heavy funk on “Get Ready.”

Take heed, disco fiends: THIS IS AN ESSENTIAL PURCHASE!

Los Angeles producer, Justin Jay, drops his latest single, “Can’t Complain,” on Black Butter Records and he’s brought his friends Josh Taylor and Benny Bridges along for the ride. A burning, moody groove sets the tone for delayed vocals and twangy guitar riffs to flitter upon while the sum of each part equals a surefire, future anthem as we head into the summer months. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for Justin’s forthcoming album, Fantastic Voyage, out later this year.

Austin based house label, bodytalk drops it’s 6th release with Jorgito’s devastating debut – “Rambla EP,” which features a remix from Barcelona’s, Lee Webster. Chord stabs, mesmerizing pads and hypnotic arpeggios define the title track while the “Alternative Mix” of “Rambla” relies on a bubbling, acidic bassline and crisp, 909 percussion. Webster provides a moody, tripped-out version with tribal drums, apt for dimly lit, sweaty clubbing or intense self-reflection. On the B side, Jorgito gives us “Just For Today,” a dank, acid-inspired jaunt that seamlessly dissipates into a vast piano interlude, only to be brought back into dementia moments later. The “Tropical Mix” turns “Today” on its head, with strong percussion and lush chord work – a true slow burning masterpiece for fans of the murkier depths.

Cover
Australia is known for its Sydney Opera House, Great Barrier Reef, the vast desert Outback and unique animal species including kangaroos and duck-billed platypuses; but is also known for its well-crafted music output and deep love for optimistic sensual tunes. This is the case here with the first release of a mysterious project called Ponzu Island, there is absolutely no info available on the artist, so let your ears judge without prejudice. Ponzu Island sounds like if Morgan Geist and Todd Terje took some acid and locked themselves in a room with a sea view, a synth, and a computer.
Here’s the premiere of the Deep & Sauvage remix by Trujillo of “Ponzu Logic,” the b-side of Super Koto, which has been also remixed by Andras Fox. Prepare to submerge on the hot wilderness of the Cosmic Caribe!
