Coming fresh off their first all-original release “Lost,” the Toronto duo Free n Losh hits right back with a flip of The Weeknd’s “Often.” Their ability to mesh hip hop and electronic music together has created notable buzz and Free n Losh were named among the Top 25 Producers in Canada by our friends at Do Androids Dance. This remix of The Weeknd sees Free n Losh back at what they do best, with an added bit of tropical synth flavor to create a track worthy of all your summer pool parties.

Summer anthem – it’s been said before but I truly feel like it’s true in the case of this remix. New York’s Bobby Green is back this summer with his signature upbeat electro-pop sound. He’s linked up with London’s Tiger La to remix her single “Now You Know”. Put your hands up for this one.

SCR012-DavidMarston-Jamaicalia

Philadelphia based producer/dj David Marston recently released his fantastic EP “Jamaicalia” (June 16th on Soul Clap Records).

“Jamaicalia is a marriage of Jamaica and Tropicalia. I first encountered the term Tropicalia as the caption of a photograph taken in Jamaica. Intrigued, I discovered that Tropicalia was an avant-garde art movement that was started in the 1960s in Brazil. The movement came to exemplify cultural hybridity. It encouraged cultural syncretism: the merging of various and divergent artistic influences with the purpose of creating something novel and powerful. I am fascinated by Brazilian music, and the songs that are featured on this EP undoubtedly have strong Brazilian influences. My music, to a great extent, is the result of fusion; it is a creolized music, a pastiche of diverse styles. While my music is not typically Jamaican, Jamaican culture has had a significant influence on my approach to music creation. For me, Jamaicalia is an apt title for this body of music, because it embodies an experimental amalgam of world and dance musical elements.”

And even though the World Cup in Brazil just ended we get to celebrate the release and dance tropicalia style with this smooth as silk remix done by David himself and Dan Izco (freebie download courtesy of Soul Clap Records).
