NYC’s Ghost Beach has partnered with record label The Most Definitely to release a remix EP of their amazing, Modern Tongues-EP. All 5-tracks will receive remixes by Penguin Prison, Gigamesh, Chad Valley, Summer Heart and Shook.
Dutch producer Shook delivers the first entry. Listen to his fresh, summery, nu-dicso take on, “Been There Before.” So good!!
It’s been a long time since we last had Finland’s Femme En Fourrure (Woman In Fur) on the blog, so it’s great to finally have them back via the Miikka Lommi directed video for their new track, “Pretty Boy.”
One of the main reasons we love the electro-duo (aside from the amazing music) is the very unique and artistic visual concepts of their videos—the video for 2011’s “Bronco” and the amazing, “Plump Bisquit” were eerie and splendidly weird— “Pretty Boy” is no exception. The video features a group of women in black leotards booty shaking to the ominous electro-goth sound of the song. The video is NSFW so beware.
Watch the video and let me know what you think of the new track?!
The legendary Depeche Mode returns with a brand new single, “Heaven” taken from their long-awaited 13th studio full-length album, Delta Machine arriving on March 26th!
A deluxe version of the album will contain a second disc with 4 additional tracks as well as a 28-page hardcover book featuring photos by Anton Corbijn.
“Writing this album was incredibly daunting as I wanted the sound of this collection to be very modern,” songwriter, Martin Gore said in an announcement. “I want people to feel good about listening to this record, to get some kind of peace. It’s just got something magical about it.”
“It’s got a bit of a feel of Violator on some of the songs and a feel of Songs of Faithand Devotion on other songs, It’s a bit of a hybrid of those two for me.”

2 – Angel
3 – Heaven
4 – Secret To The End
5 – My Little Universe
6 – Slow

Watch L.A based singer\songwriter Kelly Sweet’s kaleidoscopic new video for the brilliant “Ashes of My Paradise.”
“In the opening shots, the mood is innocent, but there is a feeling of strain beneath the surface,” Sweet tells Hive. “As we move in deeper, we see the pain and passion take over as the colors become darker. However, all the way through we maintain a small light of hope reaching for the bit of true love left between the two.”
I’m getting Ellie Goulding, La Roux and Sarah McLachlan vibes from this beautiful tune!
Our current obsession, Swedish electro-pop group, Kate Boy sees their first release stateside with the incredible ‘Northern Lights (Remixes) EP’. We enthusiastically introduced the band a few weeks back (Here) via their lush, breakout tunes, “Northern Lights” and “In Your Eyes”
The ‘Northern Lights – EP arrives with two stellar remixes by Taken By Trees x Belief and Superhumanoids. Both remixes extend the experience and sheer perfection of the original.
I know what you’re probably thinking…not another Lana Del Rey remix?!! Yes, yes, I know. But this one is a good one!!! The remix is by Leo Zero, Yam Who and Robert Owens. It has a cool, chilled, Sunday vibe wrapped in a house-disco goodness groove.
Actor and DJ Idris Elba (“Prometheus,” “The Wire”) who goes under the DJ moniker 7Wallacehas done a hot, boogie-down remix of Biggie’s“Nasty Boy”.
