Griz’ label, All Good Records, flexes it’s A&R muscles with the first in a new series of free compilations entitled “Freshly Baked Vol. 1.” Our good buddy Falcon Punch sent over his contribution earlier today and we must say, it certainly is lovely. “Cream” is a smooth, laid back affair that grabs the listener with its funky percussion, acid lines and silky guitar riffs… a combination that certainly live’s up to the track title.

Falcon Punch, the avian dance crusader and Denver Disco Don, descends from the clouds to join our roster of exclusive mix providers.  His former vinyl releases for labels such as Whiskey Disco and Smokecloud, earned him underground street cred while his bootlegs and official remixes for the likes of Holy Models and Capyac brought his name to the masses with play counts near 400K. Keep your eyes peeled for forthcoming remixes for Borneland and Beat Connection plus a tasty collaboration with LA’s Wild & Free.

Smokecloud Records is a dope little label out of Athens, GA that produces high quality, highly collectable vinyl releases of the dance persuasion. Their latest offering is a multi-artist compilation entitled “Smokecloud Blend” and features tunes from Osmose, the label’s founder, Denver’s own disco lord, Falcon Punch, a collab from VinylAddictied & SMQ plus one from Brooklyn new comer, The Silver Rider. This diverse collection of tracks covers a variety of dance floor needs and is the perfect addition to a vinyl DJ’s arsenal.

Dropping in on the A-Side, The Silver Rider’s “Sly & Pat” gets things nice and warm with his low-slung, psychedelic take on a “mighty” disco classic. Hot on it’s heels, Falcon Punch amps up the tempo with a heavy slice of funk with his superb cut, “Move.” Flip it over and we get the thick-as-molases beatdown vibes of Osmose’s “Caught Up” and a rocksteady bless-up of Diana Ross’ classic “Upside Down,” here titled “CC Tribute” and offered by the incomparable team of VinylAddicted + SMQ.

Like a perfect breeze of warm, southern air, Falcon Punch descends from the clouds to bless us with his latest in the form of ‘Donald’s Bird.’ A summery, mid-tempo cut from one of the the funkiest Blue Note albums of the 70’s, Flacon Punch does it justice with his Horizontal Disco update that’s chalk full of beefy drums, sweeping pads and a smooth as silk synth solo. Plenty of wonderful jams are up for gratis grabs on the mans SC page… find it linked above and show some love.

If blissful, panty dropping/baby making music is what you’re after these days, then look no further than the latest from Denver based, Falcon Punch. His new tune, ‘Silk’ appeared a mere matter of minutes ago and coupled with a free download, it’s just what Dr.Love ordered. Released via Karl Kling (RAC) and Cyclist’s fresh imprint, MANI/PEDI, ‘Silk’ offers some sultry guitar riffs, dreamy Rhodes and exceptional sample usage…turn out the lights, it’s time to get close.

Athens based, vinyl only label, Smokecloud Records, have emerged over the last couple years as stateside disco warriors, championing vintage vibes and analogue presentation. Their string of limited quantity releases, aimed steadily at dance-floors and vinyl fetishists alike, have established the young imprint as a player on the global field of boogie aficionados.

We’ve teamed up with our dudes at Gotta Dance Dirty for a very special edition of The Dirt and it has been nothing but a dream. GDD knows their electronic music and has been one of the go-to sites for the latest and greatest. They’ve also got a grassroots presence in almost every city across the country and are behind 75% of the parties up and down the West Coast. On top of that, they’ve got a pretty slick line of t-shirts and tanks. Really is there anything that they don’t do?

OK enough gushing and onto the good stuff – the dirt. GDD editor extraordinaire and myself have put together FOURTEEN certifiably fresh tracks for your listening pleasure. Number 86 is about to become your new favorite number because this week’s The Dirt is mega. Get it while it’s still hot.

Nancy’s Picks:

Worship – Spiral End feat. Ricco Vitali (Freak You Remix)

On The Fruit Records’ label boss Freak You has remixed Worship’s “Spiral End.” The track is set to be released next month, but Holographic People has hooked us up with a free download for a limited time.

Van She – Jamaica (Unicorn Kid Remix)

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any dreamier, Scottish producer Unicorn Kid has remixed Van She’s single “Jamaica,” putting waves of ethereal synths over the original vocals. It’s still plenty tropically infused but Unicorn Kid has enlisted the help of his drum machine to kick up the dance floor readiness of the track.

How To Dress Well – Again (Janet Jackson Cover)

When I saw “Janet Jackson cover” and “How To Dress Well” next to each other, I had to push play and I was not disappointed, not one bit. Tom Krell strips the track down, using just a piano as the backing to his staggeringly beautiful falsetto. Tom’s rendition wholly encapsulates the vulnerability meant to be conveyed by the lyrics.

Saint Lou Lou – May Be You (LAUER Remix)

Steady as she goes with Lauer’s remix of twin sister duo Saint Lou Lou’s “Maybe You”. Lauer takes the duo’s dreamy debut single and turns it into a pulsating late night club tune.

Southern Shores – New Love

“New Love” is the first taste of Southern Shores’ second EP New World, out later this year via Cascine. “New Love” is the song that’s playing in the back of your head while you’re kicking up the sand and collecting seashells off a beachy coast. This is the quintessential summer jam you’ve been waiting for with its airy flutes and balmy vocals.

Grimes – Oblivion (Sliink Remix)

I really only have one word for this Grimes remix – D.O.P.E. No seriously.

P.S. This remix slays.

Icky Blossoms – Perfect Vision (Them Jeans Remix)

Production outfit Them Jeans does a great interpretation of Omaha trio Icky Blossom’s “Perfect Vision.” It doesn’t deviate too far from the original, which is a nice electro rock pop tune with The Jesus and Mary Chain vibes.

aRod’s Picks:

Bondax – Baby I Got That (Justin Martin’s Endless Summer Remix)

Bondax are paving the way for all that is fresh + new in music right now so who better to remix them than dirtybirdy Justin Martin? It’s a hot match that lives up to the hype as Justin Martin takes the bedroom vibes of the original and moves them directly to the dance floor.

Finnebassen – Monday

Another winner by red hot Finnebassen. I love the way he draws you in with his trademark deep, haunting intros, slowly brings in the vocals and then unleashes that big, dark groove. “Monday” is a remake of the 1994 R&B jam “Everyday of the Week” by Jade and is more of a slow burner than Finnebassen’s other tracks.

Capital Cities – Nothing Compres 2 U

Capital Cities do an amazing cover of this Prince-penned classic. Covers can be tricky but Capital Cities do a wonderful job capturing the passion of the song while adding in some contemporary indie-electro flair.

Frank Ocean – Thinkin Bout You (Lonsdale Boys Club Remix)

Lonsdale Boys Club’s remix of Frank Ocean gives the original slow jammer some disco house vibes with a bassline reminiscent of GLOVES circa 2010. Top notch.

Falcon Punch – Whenever You Call Me

GDDâ„¢ amigo Avery Henderson, aka Falcon Punch’s new track “Whenever You Call Me” is a slow burning, dark tropical island masterpiece. Falcon Punch adds a feathery touch to the 1972 song “I’ll Be Around” by The Spinners and the result is five and a half minutes of pure silky smoothness.

Benedikt Hammer – Big Fella

If Tron had taken place in Scarface-era Miami then “Big Fella” by Benedikt Hammer would be the soundtrack. Killer future/retro disco vibes.

Bubblegum Sci Fi – Heartbeats for L.A.

Old GDD favorite and former Hype Machine slayer Bubblegum Sci Fi returns with a melodic bass track that features throbbing, sonic dubstep mixed in with soaring indie-electro vocals. Welcome back, Bubblegum Sci Fi.
