The original version of the track “Feel Me” (to be released tomorrow Friday September 21st via Belgian label Eskimo Recordings) from Paris based producer Simon Says is a sleazed up monster of a new wave/pop track (a cover of British synthpop band Blancmange and their 1982 album track), fellow French producer/dj Yuksek ups the the disco elements and the cosmic synth stabs to make it lift off into deep space.

Parisian tag team CLAAP! & SANTANA announce their new EP “Dune” which will be available tomorrow June 16th via Yuksek’s Party Fine label. The EP arrives in perfect time for the summer heat where it’s destined to be a staple.

The label boss himself treats us to an amazing and banging afro funk sounding remix of “Summertime” that’s filled with an irresistible groove and it will definitely turn up the heat even higher.

Yuksek’s record label Partyfine has been a carefully curated imprint, with every release sounding stronger and more cohesive than the first. It’s all a stunning testament to the talented French producer’s production values, and we’re beyond thrilled to have learnt that he’s gearing up for a new compilation, the third compilation out via the label.

Today we’re excited to premiere the “Reich & Darwin” remix by Kerenn Ann, Yuksek & Chassol. While the original itself is a piano driven piece, the remix takes it to the electronic hemisphere and allows it to grab an added layer of emotional depth to the piece, making it come alive in a whole other way.

Check out both the original and remixed version below.

About a month ago Du Tonc gave away their stellar sounding rework of the 1992 released Annie Lennox track “Little Bird”, support came from the likes of Tensnake, The Magician, Yuksek and The Aston Shuffle.

Now, friend and filmmaker Stef Smith has made a “found footage music video” paying homage to the creative force that is Annie Lennox. Exploring both her incredible imagination through performance and quiet sensitivity in the real world. Stef said she wanted to show both her moments of joy and reflection previously captured on film.

Coming straight out of Reims in France, KCPK is a crossgenre trio that have done collaborations with the likes of Brodinski, Yuksek and The Shoes and the group have also been the main force behind the PANIK parties, curating lineups with artists as diverse as Laurent Garnier, Groove Armada, Amon Tobin, and Andrew Weatherall.

On their new single “Who Wants It” they’ve worked with Philly rapper STS (well known from his work with beat wizard RJD2) for a track that blends electro, hip hop and pop, the remix premiere that we laid our mitts on comes from London/Paris based duo Postaal who in turn churns out a stomper of a remix with a pianohouse sounding lead that lifts it into one uplifting and epic anthem.

Yuksek has been pretty quiet over the past few months but that’s because he’s been focusing his energy into his new label Partyfine.

The latest release comes from Parisian producer Jean Tonique that sounds like a cool mojito on a hot summer day. The seven track “You” EP is some good old fashioned nu-disco, dripping with beats that scream summertime. Take a listen to our three track picks from the EP below.

The Alexanders, or known separately as Alex Metric and Yuksek are back with a new funky tune going by the name “Pwoin Pwoin Pwoin”, and that’s exactly what it sounds like. Building synth work sprinkled with some intergalactic woogs and woggles, all over a 4/4 house beat. Set to be released off of Yuksek’s imprint Partyfine on August 25th, “Pwoin Pwoin Pwoin” is a great addition to the already stellar discography of the young label.
