The OXD Mirror: New Music For 5.10.13

Isaac Tichauer: 'Take over You'

We've been following Sydney's Isaac Tichauer closely since last summer when we saw singles like 'Doing What I Got' surface, showcasing his knack for tropical house tunes later found on his Devotion LP.  The French Express signee is back with a free EP, Take Over You, just in time for the warm weather.  This soulful, deep, bass-heavy track will easily set the mood for a beautiful summer's night out.

 

a/jus/ted feat Miss Bee: 'Stay Up Here'

Justin Strauss and Teddy Stuart met in New York City in 2012 and formed a/just/ted together after Stuart's work caught the attention of NYC legend Strauss.  Soon the two were together in a studio with an Arp piano and laying out the chords to their first single 'Stay Up Here'.  Since then they've completed many tracks and brought on British vocalist Michelle Bee (Miss Bee) to add in her brand of "made-for-disco" vocals. Other producers like Satin Jackets and Mario Basanov have also borrowed her vocals to take their tracks to the next level.  'Stay Here' is a pulsing house track with a chic and polished feel to it – pulling off the difficult feat of having a decidely "New York City" feel.

 

Flight Facilities: 'I Didn't Believe feat. Elizabeth Rose (Extended Version)'

Australian duo Flight Facilities have fianlly returned after their last original release, 'Clair De Lune,' back in November.  The Future Classic-signed duo has seen significant success with past releases like 'Crave You' and my personal favorite, 'Foreign Language.'  Their latest, 'I Didn't Believe,' is along the lines of the very decidely disco sound Flight Facilities has shown in the past.  Fellow Sydney-based electronic-pop singer/producer Elizabeth Rose helped compose the song and provides the vocals.  I'm especially excited to hear the remix by Tiger & Woods that is included as part of the single release.

 

This Sunday: Plastic Plates at Paradisco at THE OUT NYC

If you're a regular reader of the OXD Mirror on Towleroad, you're probably familiar with producer, DJ and drummer Plastic Plates (we've featured him here, here, here and here for starters).  We are excited to announce that he will be DJing at our weekly daytime party, Paradisco, at THE OUT NYC from 3-8 this Sunday.  This is the first time he has been featured at a gay party in New York City and we're looking forward to hearing his signature synth-heavy nu disco music under the spring sun.  More details can be found on our site.  We're looking forward to seeing all you Towleroad readers there on Sunday!
