NYC based singer and boogie chanteuse Amy Douglas (1/2 of Peach Melba and collaborator on so many amazing tracks) makes her official DFA Records debut with her brand new single “Never Saw It Coming” (co-written and produced by fellow New Yorker Tim Wagner of 33Hz/Dither Down Records fame, with two remixes coming from UK based artist Crooked Man).
Amy’s fantastic and powerful voice is at the absolute centre of the track, adding a sense of drama to a track that can best be described as “steady mechanical funk” that meets a disco house groove. The two remixes on the single from Crooked Man lets the track grow and build slowly with lush arrangements, while his hypnotic sounding dub version plays up the woozy bassline and lets Amy’s vocals echo out into the ether.
All Dom Wrong is the new solo project from Discobelle fam and New York based DJ/producer Dominque Keegan, the pulsating track “Give Myself Away” is engulfed in a deep, Balearic/disco/house sounding groove with a soulful vocal offering coming from the one and only Amy Douglas. The track has already received great feedback from DJs such as Tensnake, Aeroplane, Damien Lazarus, John Digweed, X-Press 2, Danny Tenaglia, Shit Robot, M.A.N.D.Y and many more.
On the remix front, Danish producer Kasper BjÃ¶rke pulls no stops with his abstract, minimal discoish remix, Aashton & Swift hands us a subtle remix that shimmers with stumbling beats and the feel of a track destined to be played right as the sun sets. And finally we get an acid thumping remix from Trap Avoid.
This mix was made exclusively for premier Danish headphone company Aiaiai and it bumps and grinds through a few choice tracks and a bunch of upcoming Plant exclusives such as Ben Mono’s “The Feel” (Bit Funk remix) and Dom’s first solo release featuring the vocal offerings of Amy Douglas in a Kasper BjÃ¶rke remix.
Tracklist after the jump.
NYC’s reigning disco king Eli Escobar finally drops the long awaited digital version of his “Set My Heart On Fire” EP on Plant Music and we got our hands on this amazing bonus remix by the man himself as part of the package. Stretch Armstrong added his editing skills to the track and you can find the remix as part of a 4 track EP (dropping in November) which also includes the original “All Night Long (Set My Heart on Fire Pt. 2) featuring Amy Douglas and Make Me Feel. The two other tracks on the EP were featured on Eli’s White Label 12″ that dropped this summer which you can find it on Juno.
