The OXD Mirror: New Music for 8.31.12

Alison Valentine: 'Peanut Butter (Moon Boots Remix)'

Alison Valentine is a New York City native whose sounds are inspired by years spent at Swiss boarding school listening to Prince and french dance music.  I have to admit that I find Valentine almost too cute, compounded by her love for making floral arrangements with her delightful take on light disco and dance music. Having received flowers from Valentine, Moon Boots remixed her latest single to thank her, adding an east-L.A. early hip-hop beat and irresistible quality to the song.


Club Feet – 'City of Light (Softwar Remix)'

Australian band Club Feet have been compared to comtemporaries like Junior Boys and Hot Chip and we can certainly see why.  Melding a mix of being a live band and electronic producers, their latest single 'City of Lights' has been remixed by fellow Australian production duo Softwar. Remixing the likes of Azari & III and Groove Armada, as well as releasing their own EP, Softwar has been on a steady path to making a name for themselves in the dance music community with sophisticated, city-sleek remixes like this one for Club Feet.


As a bonus for you loyal readers, we have posted a 3-part 'Perfect Summer Day' Mixtape series for your labor day weekend.  Each one features many tracks that have been included on both Towleroad and on our own blog.  Grab Part I, Part II and Part III today – you can stream them or download them.


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 Josh Appelbaum.
