Midsummer round-up

As you maybe know, we Swedes celebrate Midsummer this weekend. It's one of our classic festivals that is the second most celebrated holiday except Christmas. The biggest celebration party was yesterday, that means that most Swedes today are pretty tired and pretty hungover. Sweden as a country is not that fast today, so if any other country would like to invade us, I think this day could be the one to choose.

The tradition is clear and simple, it occurs round the summer solstice and we drink "Brännvin" (a kind of akvavit or flavoured vodka), eat "inlagd sill" (pickled herring) and of course dance around the "Midsommarstång" (maypole) singing old classic songs that goes a bit like this:

Nothing strange with this I would say. I must also add that the party that I was at, was a lot more intense than this clip.

Due to intenseness from yesterday I just wanted to gather some new and kind of new music that we like right now. A kind of Midsummer roundup from tired Tracasseur. Happy Midsummer!

The summer track of 2012?

Got a tip the other week from a friend about his friend making music under the name Orion. I took a listen and watched the video for his debut single "In The End" and after the first play, I played it again and again and again...

Swedish Orion has probably made the summer track of 2012 with this sweet danceable pop track. I can hear some Kleerup vibes in it and also some parables with Adrian Lux and similar. "In The End" got some wonderful vocals from Malin Gustavsson and if Orion can follow up on this first "hit" he will probably hit it off real big.

"In The End" is available on iTunes and Spotify, unfortunately only the Swedish ones so far.

Here's the video shot in New York, directed by Jacob Hägg.

New Plastic Plates remix

We posted about Van She's "Jamaica" the other day and now we found the best remix so far. Plastic Plates, that we always can rely on, once again deliver a remix that will be in our players for a very long time. A great original track remixed to a maybe even better track than the original?! Also great that it comes as a free download.

Jacques Renault + Johnwaynes

Jacques Renault's dope remix of the upcoming release from Johnwaynes on Let's Play House. Until it's out, enjoy it on YouTube. Did I say dope? I meant dope!

Cocolores - Vox & Shox

German duo Cocolores has been in my playlist since the "Heart Quest" EP released last year. The Munich duo makes fine 90s house scented music within the deep house genre. It's easy to love and easy to put on repeat. Today I wanted to introduce them for those of you who have missed out on what Jason and Manuel are up to.

In April Cocolores released their latest stuff "Vox" along with "Shox" on the German quality label Exploited. Check out both the label and Cocolores' tracks below. Also go and buy the release over at Beatport.

Why not also check out their video for "Vox".

Second single from Van She

Single No 2 from Van She to be released before the album release July 6 of "Idea of Happiness" out on Modular. And what a second single, "Jamaica" is one track for the summer and it was also love right away. Can hardly wait for the album, July 6 seems so far away. For us Europeans it's even longer, because the release is not out here until July 9 and not to talk about the poor Americans that will have to wait even one more day. Pre-order your copy from iTunes.

Here is also the first single release, the title track from the album, along with the SebastiAn remix.

Soulwax remix of Goose

Pretty good remix by old faves Soulwax of Goose. Belgians together as one in this remix I would say. It has a kind of long intro that rises, rises, rises and then explodes into something that you will enjoy very much. Available June 25, but here it's in low quality mp3.

Monsieur Adi remix of Ellie Goulding

Two of the most beloved Tracasseur artists, Monsieur Adi and Ellie Goulding, together in this amazing remix. It's the third remix Adi makes for Ellie. Superb combo!

Ellie sent over the vocals from her cover of The Weeknd to Adi for him to make this remix come alive. Thanks to Ellie we now got this huge track, that's gonna be played a lot over the world. Only in 24 hours it almost got 20.000 plays, thanks to Ellie's intense tweeting and posting on Facebook. Now when we post it will raise with at least 10.000 plays within the next 24 hours, or?! Also get that, it's free download!

Ellie's cover of The Weeknd also needed to get posted!

HEMO Djs + Goldroom

Helsinki based duo of HEMO Djs have made a remix of Goldroom's beautiful "Fifteen", where we hear the gorgeous voice of Chela. When Goldroom gave away "Fifteen" for free kindly a month ago, we got to hear a new sweet side of Goldroom, that makes him even wider as an artist.

HEMO Djs, that we've not written about properly yet, we have just posted a great Yelle remix they made. So this is the first time we write some lines about them and tell you that they are this Finnish duo consisting of Alvar Tallskog and Otto-Wille Koste. Today we give you another great remix they've made, and it's free download! Keep these remixes coming our way guys!

Also post the original Goldroom track again, if you've missed it, that is a modern pearl and also a freebie.

Daroc's homage to Éric Charden

Éric Charden was a famous French singer and songwriter who passed away last week. Our fine friend Daroc made a cover to show his respect to a great music mind.

The original Charden track was the theme to one of Daroc's favourite cartoons "Albator" as a kid. So this cover is kind of a nostalgic homage for him to Éric Charden. I really like what Daroc has done in this cover.

RIP Éric Charden.
(Here you can actually hear the original track back from 1979)

Two new from Young Galaxy

One of the best record last year was "Shapeshifting" by Young Galaxy and we just got the news that they are here with two new tracks before the release of their forthcoming album. You can get your own limited edition 7" vinyl from Paper Bag Records online store. There are only 300 copies made, so you better hurry.

These two new tracks are recorded live off the floor in the studio and are the first tracks to be recorded with their two new members Andrea Silver and Matthew Shapiro. So the sound is a bit more "rough" than we got used to from "Shapeshifting". The smooth sound from that record was produced by our Swedish maestro Dan Lissvik.

We can also announce that Mr. Lissvik is going to produce the upcoming record as well, oh happy days! We can also tell that Young Galaxy and Lissvik are in Sweden right now as I write this, producing the new album. "Shapeshifting" won the Polar Music Prize and I just hope they will make an even better album!

Pyramid's Rising Day Remixes out now!

I've got the six remixes from Pyramid's "Rising Day Remixes" EP in my possession for more than a week as dj promo. The EP has been on constant repeat since then and now I'm happy to announce that the EP is out and you can get your own copy over at Beatport.

The release is out on Monsieur Adi's fine label Technofavrik and also contains a remix of his own. The other remixes that I really like big time are the ones from Pilotpriest and Stay Ali. Thomas Barrandon and Final DJs also make their remixes really nice and to end the EP, we got the, also fine, remix by Auto from Pyramid to give to you guys, our lovely readers! Give it up for Pyramid!
