The OXD Mirror: Kelis’ Return and New Music by MK, Munk, and More

  •  'Jerk Ribs,' the jazzy, syncopated first single from Kelis' FOOD gets a piano driven deeper house treatment courtesy of England's Ben Pearce.
  • MK tackles HAIM's latest single with his signature production that is really given its moment to shine with the dub treatment. If this version doesn't have enough lyrics for you, check out his vocal remix.
  • 'Intimate Stranger' is yet another infectious house anthem by MUNK that tells the tale of a fleeting one night stand.
  • Treasure Fingers & Anna Lunoe team up to create, 'Bad MF' an aggressive  late night dancefloor filler.
  • Shit Robot's LP, We Got A Love, just released this week and it's chock-full of disco and house jams that will have you grooving all summer long. The Leisure Connection remix of his latest single, "Do That Dance" tones the originaly down, giving it a summery, poolside vibe.
  • Hot Natured's acclaimed collaboration with Róisín Murphy finally gets the remix treatment on their latest EP. The link above includes three different previews (my favorite being the Luca C & Brigante mix). You can buy the full versions on Beatport

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.
