Robyn – “Be Mine” [Verschwende Deine Jugend Remix]

Legendary electronic duo Röyksopp and Sweden’s reigning Queen Robyn take over New York City’s Pier 97 today for their massive #DoItAgain Tour. To celebrate this glorious event I have attached below a rare (kinda) bootleg remix of Robyn’s 2005 classic, “Be Mine.” Robyn’s version always had a sense of frailty to it’s lyrics and sound; this remix in the other hand turns the song upside-down by infusing a menacing pulsing-synth throughout it’s run adding a sense of obsession to the original track.

Róisín Murphy – “Ramalama” (Bang Bang) [Rob Mooney & Junior Gee Remix]

Oldie but goodie! This remix is about 4-years-old but since all of Róisín Murphy’s songs and remixes are simply timeless; I thought I share this with y’all today. Grab the incredible house remix of the divine Ms. Murphy’s “Ramalama” from her glorious 2005 debut, Ruby Blue  by UK DJ\Producers Rob Mooney & Junior Gee.

Below is the Irish diva performing “Ramalama” live at Germany’s Melt! Festival in 2005.

Personal plead note : Dear Ms. Murphy, can we PLEASE  get a proper followup to the majestic, Overpowered?! The time is now! xo

FEMME Covers The Shangri-Las, Anita Ward, Seal and Madonna!

One of our favorite discoveries this year, London’s electropop pixie FEMME has been sharing a series of covers for the past weeks that the singer calls: “songs that have no doubt influenced and inspired the sound and the music I make today.”  Those songs have now been made available as a free download today!

The collection includes songs by American royalty, The Shangri-Las (whom we definitely see as an inspiration for FEMME’s “Fever Boy.” ) as well as Anita Ward, Madonna and Seal. Each cover representing an impacting decade of music spanning from the 60s to the 90s. We absolutely love what she’s done here. Each song has been revitalized with an energetic synthpop sound that breathes new life into the memorable classics. These covers also offer a bit of a glimpse on what FEMME’s music might sound like on her upcoming debut. Exciting!

As a bonus, below is a fantastic cover of Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” not included in this EP collection.

FEMME is joining Elliphant and Charli XCX on a North American tour starting in September for what is sure to be one of the most kick-ass, #girlpower shows ever! Be sure not to miss that!

Enjoy!

Starsmith – “Now I Feel Good” Feat Clare Maguire [Club Edit]

Listen to London DJ\Producer Starsmith’s glorious new single “Now I Feel Good” featuring the vocals of the equally amazing Clare Maguire whom we haven’t heard much from in a very long time. The song premiered a few days ago on Pete Tong’s BBC Radio 1 show. The euphoric track is such the feel good anthem— It makes us feel like summer is starting all over again; it’s such a refreshing blast of sunshine, disco and summertime sadness happiness!

Phantogram – “Fall In Love” [Belanger Remix]

Phantogram’s sultry electro-pop track “Fall In Love” off their critically acclaimed sophomore album Voices  gets an adrenaline boost via a Belanger remix!

The New York-based producer strips the synthesized orchestral sound of the original and revitalizes the smoky track with a 90s deep-house groove, scattered industrial beats and a vibrant, strutting baseline that adds a bit of sensual urgency to the already sexy, vocal track. If you have a weekend playlist add this thumping, house-jam as your starting track!
