The OXD Mirror: New Music for 7.13.12

Cadillac – 'Too Long (Daft Punk Cover)'

 

The result of a series of collaborations between Australian label Future Classic and French sports equipment brand Le Coq Sportif, this Cadillac cover of Daft Punk's 'Too Long' is a feast to the ears. Cadillac stepped into the music scene with their excellent self-titled EP last year, and now, with this balearic disco version of a French house classic, they have us hooked. This track is available as a free download so make sure to grab a copy.

 

Yuksek – 'The Edge (Aeroplane Remix)'

   

A native of Reims, France, Yuksek is a former pianist who since 2006 has been working under his current moniker and remixing popular artists such as Chromeo, Gorillaz, Katy Perry, Phoenix and many others.  'The Edge' is the latest single off of his 2011 sophomore album, Living on the Edge of Time.  With the release of the single came a few remixes, including a beautiful version by Aeroplane, which relies on the Belgian producer's signature uplifting keyboard melodies and turns the original track into a song perfect for the dancefloor.

 

Peter & The Magician – 'Memory'

 

While on the subject of Yuksek, his side project with The Magician has proven to be very successful with another brand new release out this week on French music/fashion label Kitsuné. Peter (Yuksek) & The Magician's 'Memory' builds over a looping steeldrum-like melody that could easily keep one dancing all night long.

As we mentioned last week, Kitsuné is throwing a big party to celebrate Bastille Day in NYC this Sunday, the 15th. Moon Boots and Punks Jump Up will be taking over the decks and, for that reason, we are encouraging everyone who is in NY to join us for an overly fun night.

OCCUPY THE DISCO (OXD) curates and recommends music events to the gay community in NYC—in an effort to move the focus of the nightlife scene beyond the promoter and venue and to the music itself. OXD's goal is to educate, entertain, engage and empower the gay audience to reclaim their ability to question and experience the unknown. The OXD Mirror will serve to showcase tunes that are definitely off-the-beaten-path but rightfully deserve the attention of the gay ear. It's music that will make you dance, dream, and most importantly, love.

This week's post was written and curated by Tadeu Magalhães.

    I had no idea of the Peter & The Magician/Yuksek connection. I don’t like all of Yuksek’s tracks, but Off The Wall is pretty damn amazing.

    Memory is growing on me, plus I like all the remixers…maybe I give a light edge to Poindexter on this one.

    Sorry, I have to disagree with previous posters. This all sounds the same and for the first time in years I’m likely to skip the music blog on Towleroad. Don’t get me wrong, I love disco/house but I don’t need to go gay blog to find it. Play me something I won’t hear at the clubs or booming out the car of a clone…

    Great songs! Ive been obsessed with nneka’s song since I heard it on a video for a sf dance studio. Strange to see it here! I love the other songs too. Thanks. The sf dance video link is below.
