I’ve been steadily enjoying Oliver’s track “Fast Forward” for the greater part of the last month so I figured it’s time to write something about it. Earlier this summer, I had the thought, “wow I wish Oliver would release some new music soon,” and then BOOM, “Fast Forward” popped up in my Soundcloud newsfeed like that sign from God I’ve been waiting so long for. If you will something hard enough, it happens.

Well what can I say about this track besides that it is very, very good and meets all I’ve come to expect from the LA-based duo. “Fast Forward” packs a punch, inspires hip shaking and fist pumping, and induces total euphoria all without using any “drops.” This track is the one guys.

Remember that song “Obsession” by one hit wonder group Animotion from the 80s that is just so unbelievably laden with hooks that you can’t help but groove to it every time it comes on? Well this isn’t that but you can think of it as a the new millennium’s revamp. Pop crooner Johnny Stimson has just released a track by the same name that’s every bit as catchy as its 80s sister. Johnny’s “Obsession” breaks things down to a more pre-internet time where it’s all teenage dreams and imagination.

Ilya Santana is a name synonymous with the Cosmic/Nu Disco sounds of southern Europe. The Canary Islands native has showcased an impressive body of work on such quality outlets as Eskimo Recordings, Nang, Tirk, Permanant Vacation and here, on Ruben & Ra’s, Retrospective.

Premiered here is the Rayko remix of Santana’s, ‘Big Foot,’ a slinky number with staccato guitar riffs and vintage arpeggios. Included in the package, which drops September 29th, are remixes from Nelue, Thomass Jackson and Future Feelings… a hot collection of high-stepping talent indeed.

Pre-order from Juno Download.
