I needed something to really pull me back into this.

Luckily my friends at Binary and Nightwaves were eager to help.  Feeling like a match made in the dreamwave heavens, a connection was made between Despotz Records‘ own ultra-pop-funk O’Spada and Binary’s Nightwaves. They were given the task to remix/rework/whatever you want to call it O’Spada’s latest single, “Ten Strikes”.  After just a short time they were ready to deliver the final product.

The result: TWO amazing renditions of one excellent original track.  yew! Taking the original clean-cut/pop-funk groove, Nightwaves, took O’Spada to the land of bongos and reverberating synths. They did what they do best by creating an impossibly dreamy atmosphere and turned this squeaky clean track into a dream of cosmic proportions.  TWICE.

O’Spada – Ten Strikes (Nightwaves Midnight Fire Remix) –It starts fairly minimal with skeletal rhythm and stark vocals which gradually builds atmosphere –eventually into a thick pulsing aural beast just before breaking to the amazingly lovely chorus progression. so smooth. a knife through butter, creamy camembert, etc. massaging your auditories.
take note: BONGOS BONGOS BONGOS!!!!

O’Spada – Ten Strikes (Nightwaves’ Sunday Morning Remix) –hand claps, reverb, and FM synths on a sunday morning is the best way to have any morning.

So which one is your favorite? Both?  Thought so. No, but really. Let’s hear it.

For those of you who are just joining the mania, O’Spada is AWESOMELY fresh.  You can hear what I posted about them a while ago, here.

Here’s the original version of O’Spada’s ‘Ten Strikes’

Who else would I be talking about?  Hemingway brings us back to his 116ft super yacht for an intergalactic space-cruise through the milky way of funk.

Just as I was feeling the yacht-funk vibe taper off, James Harris aka Hemingway brings the vibe to new heights with his rework of Keenhouse’s “Ari-es” taking us to interstellar-bongo-yacht-funk critical mass. Believe me when I have said and now say again, Hemingway ain’t nothin’ to fuck with.

This remix is being released in promotion of the upcoming Keenhouse single release through our super dreamy friends, Binary Records. The guys over there are doing really good things in LA and are having a huge bash celebrating their first compilation album, “LA Lights” next week. (FREE. Tues Oct. 13 @ the Echo)
Yes, I’ve listened.
Yes, I’m vouching.
Yes, it’s awesome.

Digital release of “LA Lights” will be next Tuesday and it will be available EVERYWHERE. In the meantime, stream the hell out of it here.

So now enjoy the whole reason of this post, Hemingway’s vision of Ari-es.

I know many of you have heard of Keenhouse, but have you really HEARD Keenhouse? You really just need to take a second to hop onto hypem and check what he’s done. Notice that it’s ALL top notch?

As I write this post I’m listening to Keenhouse’s first EP, released last year, for the first time all the way through. I wish I had done this sooner. Overall, simply put, it’s awesome. Highly melodic, phrasing, key progressions, depth, it’s all really impressive and pretty unbelievable for a first release. After some discussion with the boys at Binary, I’m starting to understand why/how this was possible. I don’t want get into the nitty gritty right now, but let’s just say they tell me he’s well trained in the classical sense. It’s really a shame this album kind of flew under the radar and didn’t get the hype it deserved. Let’s change that.

Keenhouse’s next single Civil Transit is going to be released with Binary. It’s right on the horizon and the remixes + a hype storm are starting to take shape.

Here’s a little taste to get the ball rolling. First up, Anoraak with a reaaaallly dreamy rendition of Civil Transit in full force with the ever so slight reverb on plucky arpeggiators. atmospheric.

Keenhouse – Civic Transit (Anoraak LAX Remix)

And this is a lick off the original EP to whet your appetite, this is the first track and it hits the ground running. Starts out heavily LFO’d and drops into a rhythm reminiscent of french touch. Perfect Keenhouse. Is that a genre yet?

REPLY TO ALL SHOUT OUT BLOG MAFIA RIDE OR DIE

Anyway, none of this could have been possible without our special friend, the young Jordan Elliot of The Kids Are RADIOACTIVE [TKAR]. He’s part of the always lovely Binary crew in Los Angeles and one thing is for sure when it comes to Binary- nicest bunch of kids around!

TKAR has a ways to go as far as developing his own niche sound, but what we’ve all heard so far, is very promising. He tiptoes between the lines of electro/techno/dreamwave and we’re dying to find out what comes of all this exploration! The fact that he’s so young and putting out stuff that sounds like this, only leaves the future to be excited about. So while we wait for massive things to happen, sit back and enjoy what he’s doing right now.

First up is the feature track that started the reply to all magic… TKAR’s remix of Ra Ra Riot’s – Can You Tell. Cannot get enough cathedral organ in my life!!

Ra Ra Riot – Can You Tell (The Kids Are Radioactive Remix)

Here’s something I’m really excited about. An original production from TKAR with vocals lent by another LA local, LexiconDon. Be stoked for this one, it’s out on Binary’s compilation album “LA Lights” out October 13!!

The percussion and hand claps…. #ilovehandclaps

The Kids Are RADIOACTIVE – Higher feat. LexiconDon

Just because I’m in the best mood possible today, this is my latest favorite from Team Australia.  It’s the Strip Steve remix of GLOVES – PYX.  SO good.  Paradise. You may recognize it if you tuned into #radiotuftsmania (scroll thru if you want to get the lowdown on what happened last night).  It was the opening track! that modulated key synth solo…and I seem to love anything with acoustic piano?….. love.
