The OXD Mirror: New Music for 12.5.13



The OXD Mirror is a weekly music column brought to you by the boys of OCCUPY THE DISCO (OXD), a New York City based collective created by three music lovers, Ru Bhatt, Josh Appelbaum, and Tad Haes, who want to share their love for disco, house and dance music with the world.   

Mighty Mouse - 'In Front of Our Friends (feat. Monarchy) (Disco Mix)

After remixing Monarchy's 'Disintegration' earlier this year, Mighty Mouse has teamed up with the band once again to create this fantastic feel-good tune. With a guitar riff provided by fellow Du Tonc bandmate Matt Van Schie (of Van She) and amazing vocals provided by Monarchy's Ra Black, the song is incredibly catchy, giving it all the elements of a dancefloor filler.


Franz Ferdinand - 'Right Action (Liv Spencer Remix)'

Franz Ferdinand made quite the splash on the dance scene by teasing Todd Terje-produced buzz tracks earlier this year in anticipation of their LP, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action. The recently resuscitated band continues to be dancefloor friendly with the album's lead single and title track, which is originally produced by Hot Chip's Joe Goddard & Alexis Taylor. House of House's Liv Spencer turns up the groove with this remix by emphasizing the song's funk factor.


Dauwd - 'Heat Division (Tim Goldsworthy Remix)'

UK's Dauwd released 'Heat Division' earlier this year, following up on his 2011 garage-inspired tracks with a more of a techno and house flavor. DFA's Tim Goldsworthy, known for producing epic remixes for the likes of Monarchy, Cut Copy, and Hercules & Love Affair, gives the song a vocal hook that anchors the listener in his dreamy production and also provides a beautiful denouement to the track.

Adam Lambert, Nile Rodgers, and Avicii Debut New Music: VIDEO


The legendary producer and musician Nile Rodgers hosted a benefit Dance Party in Riverhead, Long Island on behalf of AFTEE on August 19th, 2013.

Lambert and Rodgers performed a cover of David Bowie's "Let's Dance", and a song they collaborated on called "Shady" as well as a new collaboration with Avicii called "Lay Me Down".

Said Rodgers of the "Shady" collaboration:

"[People] say, 'Yo, you want to play on my record?' and I say, 'Send me the sh*t, let me see if I like it,'" Rodgers said. "I didn’t even know who Adam Lambert was, really. I don’t watch American Idol. The guy who contacted me on Twitter to do the Adam Lambert record was a guy called Sam Sparro, who did a record called Black and Gold which I thought was the sh*t."

The Avicii collaboration is set to be released on Avicii's forthcoming album #TRUE on September 17.
