Joe Goddard – All I Know (Radio Edit) [320k - mp3]
Off of one of my favorite EPs of 2011, Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard & DFA offer up the radio edit of “Hold Me Close”. It’s the lesser known of the songs on the EP, but it’s too be expected when it’s next to a monster like “Gabriel”.
TOKiMONSTA – Bright Shadows [320k - mp3]
My favorite cut from the free Brainfeeder Sampler given away last week. Brainfeeder just came home with “Label of the Year” at Giles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards. Nab the other 11 tracks here on their site.
OOFT! – Funtime [320k - mp3]
OOFT! is Ali OOFT & Grame Clark aka The Revenge, and this was their gift to us for reaching 5,000 followers on their Soundcloud Profile. Funky, filtered, rolling disco-tinged house burner!
SBTRKT – Hold On (Them Jeans Remix) [320k - mp3]
The original “Hold On” was one of my top 5 tracks of 2011. LA’s Them Jeans gives it a respectful dancefloor-ready, house-meets-bass treatment. Just last week it got a spin from Skream on Radio 1. A+.
Pillowtalk – Long Lost Friends (Unreleased Vocal Mix) [320k - mp3]
Pillowtalk have been feeling generous lately! We get a whole :54 seconds more in this extended version with never-before-heard spoken-word vocals. Nice touch, fellas!
Mike Simonetti – Louie Louie (Perseo Edits) [128k - mp3]
This was a CD-only track from a disco & pop edits compilation that came out on Perseo, a sublabel of Mike Simonett’s Italians Do It Better. It now lives buried for free on Mike’s Soundcloud, and here, of course!
Mark E – Oranges (Jacques Renault Edit) [320k - mp3]
New York disco aficionado, Jacques Renault gives Mark E’s “Oranges” off of his self-titled debut album a few functional tweaks making it much more dance-floor & DJ friendly. Recently trainspotted on Azari & III’s Essential Mix on Radio 1. What a record!
Niki & The Dove – The Drummer (Danny Daze Paradise Garage Mix) [320k - mp3]
Danny Daze further proves he can do no wrong. Lifted for free from his Soundcloud profile. I dare you not to dance to this!
2 Bears – Work (Radio Edit) [320k - mp3]
The folks at DFA really know how to work us fans (no pun intended). The way these guys have been releasing stuff in the last year or so have had us devouring, and salivating for more. We’re kind of obsessed with 2 Bears, their new album is off the wall, and we highly recommend you buy it. This is a radio edit of “Work,” the EP just before the album. Get into it!
David Joseph – You Can’t Hide (Your Love From Me) (Greg Wilson Edit of Moplen Edit of Levan Mix) [320k - mp3]
From Greg Wilson: “With the new Electrofunkroots site just launched a week ago, I thought this would be a good time to share this edit of David Joseph’s ‘You Can’t Hide (Your Love From Me)’, a track I’ll forever have a strong personal association with, given that it was with 2 copies of this 12″ that I made my claim to fame as the 1st UK DJ to mix live on TV – on February 25th 1983 at Newcastle’s Tyne Tees TV studio, on the classic British music show, ‘The Tube’. ” Theres much more to the story, read the entire thing here.
