Brooklyn synthpop duo and party starters French Horn Rebellion have teamed up with Ghost Beach to create a pop-erific ode to California – as if you needed another reason to love the sunshine state. The release features remixes from the likes of Solidisco, Quinten 909 and one of my recent favorites, The Soundmen. They take the original sunny ode to the left coast and slow it down for cool SoCal nights filled with crackling bon fires, crashing waves, and tender romance.

Chicago’s Rogue Vogue has been making big waves this year and, thankfully, upped his output as of late. Offering remixes for the likes of French Horn Rebellion, Cyclist and Satin Jackets, his sweaty, throwback vibes have found a proper home on House Of Disco Records with his latest, ‘Say You Will EP’.
Opening with the title cut, ‘Say You Will,’ is six and a half minutes of bouncy, euphoric fun with sparkly percussion and that unmistakable Chi-Town bass line. B-side cut, ‘More Than Enough,’ turns the tuffness up a notch with deep chord stabs, chugging beats and some sweet Vandross snips. Rounding out the package we have remixes from Sixth Avenue Express, Dublin Aunts and LeSale, who takes the cake with his authentic version of ‘Say You Will.’

Be sure and pop over to the Rogue Vogue Soundcloud for a bevy of free downloads and cop this new release here.

Viceroy teams up with New York City’s French Horn Rebellion to tell the tale of an unrequited bromance in a new single called ‘Friday Nights’. Robert Perlick-Molinari of FHR croons out woeful lyrics of a boys night out gone unfulfilled while Viceroy provides the tropical infused house beats. It’s a touchy subject matter but the track’s infectious rhythm makes it near impossible not to dance. The ‘Friday Nights’ Remix EP is forthcoming with tracks from Rush Midnight, Bronx and Jessie Andrews.

French Horn Rebellion‘s “Love is Dangerous” is a song that gets better with each listen. For the track, the brothers Molinari enlisted the soulful and smooth vocals of fellow NYC music man, JPatt, who happens to be 1/2 of The Knocks. The EP also features remixes from Chrome Canyon and rekLES, as well as another track called “Cold Enough” that sees R&B legend Jody Watley (of Shalamar) stepping behind the mic. Without a doubt “Love is Dangerous” is the Next Jack Swing.

When it comes to the track “Poster Girl” by French Horn Rebellion and Database, I’ll be the first to admit that I might be a little bit biased. I’ve watched the brothers Perlick-Molinari in awe as they worked through a track from start to finish. David and Robert are two truly talented individuals who have a knack for writing hooks and catchy melodies.

Last month we wrote about the Justin Faust remix of “Poster Girl,” which was a nice disco groove track. MNDR’s Peter Wade’s interpretation is straight funky. He adds warbling synths that ricochet off your eardrums. Listen and download below.
