Originally conceived by Erol Alkan as an exclusive track for his FabricLive 77 Mix, ‘Sub Conscious’ received a new acid treatment by ones of my favorite producers in 2014, Tin Man, which is coming out as a 12” on the Phantasy imprint.

Tin Man’s experience with neoclassical and ambient work can definitely be seen in this re-work, but it is the added piano riff towards the end of the track that really makes it stand out as a hot record for the dancefloor.

The OXD Mirror: Dive Deep with Miguel Migs, Compuphonic, Walker & Royce and more

EDM may have ruled the airwaves in 2013, but 2014 saw a shift to all sorts of house music, both mainstream and otherwise. The resurgence of deep house is a trend Occupy The Disco is a big fan of and today I'll be highlighting some of the latest cuts from that subgenre.

Miguel Migs' enlists the soulful vocals of Meshell Ndegocello on 'What Do You Want,' a track from the San Francisco-based DJ's latest album, Dim Division.  This isn't the first collaboration for the two, with Meshell providing vocals for two tracks off of 2012's Outside the Skyline. While the original production on the track is light and airy,  The 'Migs Salted Vocal' highlights the bassline, grounding it in a lower atmosphere and making it much more dancefloor ready. The track is part of a remix package, out on Defected Records later this month.

Fiorious: 'Fever'

We first introduced you all to electro funk/disco/pop artist Fiorious back in 2012, and his queer disco sensibilities and New York style immediately struck a chord with us.  

The Bronx-born artist quit his day job as a pop music journalist and moved to Europe to start a music career of his own.  As a follow up to his 2012 self-titled album, Fiorious is prepping his Danceteria EP for release this month.  'Fever' is the first release from said EP - and combines some really fun funk and disco elements into an upbeat track.  I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what else this guy has in store for us in 2015, but for now you can grab this track as a free download here.

It's that time of the year again when we look back and list our favorite tracks of the year.  Given the plethora of amazing music on the disco and house scene this year, this was no easy task. Nevertheless below is a list (in descending order) of my favorite tracks that I played while spinning at our Occupy The Disco parties here in New York. 

While it's actually the Bixel Boys remix of Kiesza's acclaimed lead single, 'Hideaway' that holds the #10 spot on my list (listen after the jump), I'd be remiss to not also include the fantastic music video that accompanied the original cut. Whether it's the rhythm that hooked you, or the chorus of ooh's and aahs, 'Hideaway's brilliance lies in it's simplicty; which is echoed in the music video. It's a refreshing to watch in a world where the opulence of Gaga and Beyoncé seem to reign.

Listen to the Bixel Boys Remix of 'Hideaway' and the rest of Ru's top 10  AFTER THE JUMP...

It's that time of the year again for those 'best of 2014' lists, and the three of us will all be sharing our top tracks from this past year over the next 3 weeks. It's been a great year for music, and hopefully you all have enjoyed the variety of disco, house, pop, and techno music we've shared in 2014.

10. Roisin Murphy - 'Ancora Ancora Ancora'

2014 marked the official return of Roisin Murphy, seven years after her last full release, the massive Overpowered LP.  Her Italian language Mi Senti EP was comprised mostly of covers of Italian pop and disco songs, including 'Ancora Ancora Ancora.'  Severino (of the famed Horsemeat Disco) and Nico de Ceglia remixed this into a beautiful piano-laden track that showcases Murphy's vocal chops.  Supposedly, a new full length album is in the works for her in 2015.

Museum of Love: 'Who’s Who of Who Cares (Daniel T. & Cooper Saver Remix)'

Museum of Love, the band created by former LCD Soundsystem drummer Pat Mahoney with Dennis McNany (also known as Jee Day), released their debut self-titled full length album on DFA Records this past October.

The label issued a remix of 'The Who’s Who of Who Cares,' (the original track was shared here by Ru) by producers Daniel T. and Cooper Saver. The boys turn the original song into a mixture of space-themed, tribal and jazzy sounds. The perfect soundtrack for interstellar trips to visit distant planets with ancient cultures – or simply dance all night. Download it for free here.
