402962_10150536905652566_777917565_8989567_226987875_n

By now you already know about Disclosure, but ima recap anyway: breakout electro act from the UK. The duo is brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence – they recently supported Hot Chip and SBTRKT. They released their single “Latch” back in October 2012 featuring Sam Smith, which has gained them a well-deserved spot at shows and on best of lists- their debut album is out this month.

Where the bros are now: They just finished Ultra this weekend and sxsw the week before – next up is Nouveau Casino in Paris on the 26th then on to blessing dancefloors across Europe this spring and summer. Full tour dates here.

As for their collabo with Sam Smith - Sam Smith’s voice isn’t my usual cup of tea/in my case – liter of diet coke, but I can’t help it, I’ve become obsessed with “Lay Me Down” – listen to both the original, the acoustic version and some of the awesome remixes including the below by Jean Raw.

 

Bronze Whale – The Remix Kings of the Ocean

retro-city-bronze-whale-remix-adventure-club--L-rXMtxU

Bronze Whale has done some of our favorite remixes – Honey Claws’ ‘I Love Summer,’ Youth Lagoon’s ‘Daydream,’ Lips’ ‘Everything to Me’ and Adventure Club’s ‘Retro City’ – hard to just list one or two, because all of these are really v. well done. They started working with Ianborg a few months back and decided to collaborate with him on the recent Weeknd track. From BW direct: “Ian is incredible at arrangement and vocal stutters, so he really set the pace and spine of the track. We laid in our bass and drum sound and it really flowed together”

Get it on your weekend list:

I L O V E S U M M E R I L O V E T H E H E A T I L O V E H A L F D R E S S E D W O M E N B Y T H E B E A C H

when we were sent this earlier today, we casually, unknowingly, pressed play to check it out. What happened next is a bit curious -  our mood turned drastically and instantaneously. Our instincts were to: violently toss our desk chair across the room.  throw our coffee in someones face (not to hurt them, just to prove a point) and strip away the sweater (its f-ng cold in London, yea!?) and dance on the office table in our underwear.

still searching high and low for you summer jam!? ugh yea here it is–

Honey Claws – I Love Summer (Bronze Whale Remix) by Bronze Whale

And then this happened (!?!?!?!?!?!!?) a remix of our favorite YL – naturally, we are going to embark on that musical journey SKEPTICAL but its pure sunshine daydreams:

Youth Lagoon – Daydream (Bronze Whale Edit) by Bronze Whale

London’s Py was recently remixed by Welsh duo Face + Heel (Luke Taylor and Sinead McMillan). XLR8R cited Face + Heel as “intricate electronic compositions with an acute focus on songcraft.”

Spandau Ballet – True (Thony Ritz Remix)

New Artist: alt-J

AltJ

alt-J or ∆ (the Greek symbol for Delta, which you get from the combo of “Alt” and “J” on your computer, and also a triangle, which the band declare as their “favourite shape” – yeah, triangles ARE pretty cool) is a foursome from the U.K. who describe their sound as “folk-step” – fitting for a progressive indie sound with clear tribal influences.  Take two listens – it takes a few minutes to go from hey, these vocals are interesting? to yeah, I could listen to this again.  And again!

The band’s debut An Awesome Wave will be released on September 18th in the U.S. (it’s already out in the UK as of this past May) with a few quick tour stops in the U.S. in August just prior to the release to promote the debut.
