Modern Talker + Kings Of The Universe (+ 2 unsigned tracks)

Awesome Stockholm producers and generally nice guys Kings of the Universe, who remixed Mercury a while back have a couple of things brewing. First off they have remixed Lisbon producer Modern Talker on Hamburg label Tiefblau. It's a good release, but KOTU's bouncy garage track is the best along with Lorenzo Kurizu's remix in my opinion.

As if that wouldn't be enough, the guys have two unsigned tracks that I hope will be picked up soon.

The Magician - When The Night Is Over remixes

We covered The Magician's new single "When The Night Is Over", featuring Swedish duo Newtimers a while back. This week the remix EP was released with a pretty big-name support in Brodinski, Ejeca, Clancy and Claptone. I don't know if it's the house/deep house poisoning talking, but I'm not that impressed with Brodinski's slow electro version, but, rather predictably perhaps, I like the other versions a lot. Oh, and the Claptone remix, which featured in the Magic Tape from the other day, is free download. Pick the EP up on Beatport or iTunes.

[Free download] Germans + Auxiliary tha Masterfader

Here's an amazing slow dance disco gem from one of my favourite Dutch producers and people in general: Auxiliary tha Masterfader. Warm synths and those lovely vocals over a slow and meaty 80's disco funk comp make up one of my favourite tracks at the moment. Truly awesome stuff!

Of course, a good foundation for a good remix is a good original, and Germans is a real find. With the catchy motto "pop breakup songs: feel good about feeling bad" Brooklynite Julia Kwamya makes wonderfully crafted, dreamy and melancholic music, and it's obvious that she's someone worth keeping tabs on.

2 new Jonas Rathsman tracks

Great to finally have a couple of new Jonas Rathsman originals to sink our teeth into. Last week his track "Yes I Am" was inckuded on the great Stockholm label Local Talk's latest installment of their OneOffs EP compilation series.Pick it up over at Juno. More about Local Talk soon.

Jonas is heading out on a Euro/UK/North America tour in October, with a special French Express Takeover show on Boiler Room TV live in L.A. on October 30. Which is the day after Jonas returns home to French Express with the release of "Feel What I Feel". Label boss/Perseus guy Leon has promised there are a lot of great stuff in the making from French Express, so more about them soon too.

[Video] Cut Copy - Free Your Mind

Cut Copy rolls out their new Album at the beginning of November (1st in Australia, 4th in the UK, 5th in the US). Until then you can drool over Stellan Skarsgård as a pretty fit cult leader in the new video.

Baio - Mira (+ New Navy + Bodhi)

Brooklynite Scott Baio has an Ep called "Mira" out on Future Classic on October 28. Which seems like a good label fit since both Baio and FC combine quality with versatility. Just compare the housey "Mira" with the indie electro remix of New Navy.

Also, we've got to mention that today Future Classic also release Bodhi's very near perfect "Imperfection", which is an ultra-smooth and ultra-funky garage track.

Follow Baio, Bodhi and Future Classic on Facebook.

CHVRCHES + Moon Boots

A new remix from one of the best ones out there in Moon Boots when he takes on the superb Scottish band CHVRCHES and their sweet sweet tune "The Mother We Share". A perfect combination that's lovely candy for your ears. Even sweeter is the free download it comes with.
