The OXD Mirror: New Music for 9.19.13


Surahn – 'Wonderful (Aeroplane Remix)'

Über producer Aeroplane lends his signature cosmic grooves to Surahn's latest to create an expectedly funky daytime disco ditty that is the perfectly marriage between the talents of the Belgium's Vito Deluca and Australia's Surahn Sidhu (better known as Sidwho?).


The Magician – 'When The Night is Over' 

'When The Night is Over' is The Magician's first single on Parlophone records, the German/British record label that's home to names like Kylie Minogue, GoldfrappPet Shop Boys, and most notably, The Beatles. With peers like that, the expectations are incredibly high, and thankfully this track does not disappoint. A bouncing French house dance beat is smoothly layered under '90s R&B styled vocals by the The Newtimers, creating an irresistible and inescapable dancefloor affair.


Katy B – '5AM' 

Katy B's lead single from her forthcoming EP, '5AM' is a '90s inspired house track that's sure to keep dance floors thumping. With lyrics like "the beat's so sick / that tune's so ill," the song sends you into a feverish frenzy that can only cooled with "some lovin' like Valium."

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.

This week's post was written and curated by Ru Bhatt. Check out more of his music picks on his podcast, The Ru-Mix and on Made In Brazil.
