This new release from Justin Faust and Discotexas has had me groovin’ all weekend. If you missed my coverage of the original mix, peep it here.

This time, I wax poetic on the tasty remix from NTEIBINT, who pitches the tempo down to slinkier territories with his low slung version. Italo stylings and a half-time, chordal breakdown soundtrack visions of a dancing Spacer Woman and her Capricorn Man, locked in a cosmic embrace of Cybernetic Love.

If you like synthy shit, DIG THIS!

Media Blackout comes correct with this fresh offering from Bucharest based producer, Elektromekanik. ‘Are You Alright’ is a brooding, melancholic stroll through analogue gardens while 8-bit butterflies pollinate Fairlight flowers….in other words; it’s really synthy and beautifully crafted. Elektromekanik, nee’ Victor Gunta, walks a fine line between deep and dark and his exceptional combination of vintage sounds and modern production is pitch perfect on this outing.

Tapped for remixes, Mexican beatsmith, Jorge Prida takes us deeper with a chuggier tempo and sweet flourishes of piano and guitar while Texas natives, Night Drive head the opposite direction with their Italo-tinged version. Cascading melodies and layer upon layer of arppegiated synth lines usher in Night Drive’s signature sound in the best possible way, most definitely the heaviest dance-floor cut on the release.

Austin-based house producer, Off Da Clock celebrates the release of his debut EP, ‘Rooftop Swank,’ out today on Xephyron Digital. The double track EP features all manner of boogie business with two thoughtfully crafted cuts of dissected disco house. Up first, ‘Jus 2 Hot’ is a euphoric blend of horn stabs and shimmering chords while ’3 Miles High’ follows a similar formula, though it’s looped phrases and bottom-heavy bassline make it more of a peak-time heater than it’s counterpart. Wash this all down with a free remix of ‘Jus 2 Hot’ by the one and only, Go Go Bizkitt! and you’ve got a stellar package!

Buy it on Beatport here.

Hot of the presses, Munich-based, Discotexas alum, Justin Faust has dropped the first single from his forthcoming LP, ‘Spellbound.’ Here, we have the titular cut, a swanky jammer that features bubbly bongo riffs and skittering, layered arpeggios. A gorgeous, chordal breakdown adds to the tune’s cosmically epic leanings, like a land-speeder cruise thru the valleys of some distant, alien planet.

The forthcoming album drops September 19th on Discotexas.
