NYC duo Tempers are releasing their “Fundamental Fantasy” EP this Friday February 24th via The Vinyl Factory. It’s a follow-up to the band’s 2015 debut “Services” which won praise from the likes of Pitchfork, The Fader, Stereogum and Noisey to name a few.

“‘Fundamental Fantasy’ is about exploring the creative scenery of romantic illusions. Our need for them, how we justify them to ourselves, that moment when the imagined story line collides with reality. The ways we fictionalize people to fit into the narratives we have about love – to reflect our own beliefs, virtues and flaws. It is about celebrating fantasies swelling and getting undone, so we can pick up the pieces and craft new ones that serve us better’

The duo (Jasmine Golestaneh and Eddie Cooper) create an emotional and tonal tension of sensual and mechanical impulses with their brand of dark electronica that sets haunting songs to a sinister disco beat and pop melodies floating in an almost industrial soundscape.

Here in an exclusive Discobelle premiere, Paris-based producer Joakim remixes the band’s latest single “Tail In My Mouth” into a highly hypnotic dark, leftfield electroish remix that’s propelled forward with a steadfast beat.

We’ve written about Joakim’s “Hearbeats” earlier this summer, but now we’re happy to share the official video of the track. It’s a cinematic exploration of urban and natural landscapes, bringing together footage shot in Italy, China and the U.S.

The French producer is also coming state side for a one off show in NY this Thursday, September 5th. Joakim joins Todd Terje and Lindstrom at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple for a gig that’s sure to sell out. So if you happen to be in the New York area this week, grab your tickets NOW.

French artist Joakim with his best of music you can dance to in 2012 mix, we listened alot to his previous 2011 edition and this is just as spectacular!

“This is a non-objective best of 2012 mixtape. It includes tracks that i played a lot in 2012 (including some hits that you must know already) and tracks that I listened to over and over. 2012 was again a pretty good year. Couldn’t really fit all the songs i wanted in there. But most of them. So there’s a bit of everything i love there, House, Deep or not, Techno, futuristic R&B, Post-Whatever, dark stuff, funky stuff, lots of beats and lots of emotions. Enjoy.”
