Killtronik: 'Paris La Nuit (Venice Beach Remix)'
22-year-old Kévin Blanc (Kiltronik) has been playing music since he was 8 years old, when he first learned to play piano, then guitar and ultimately writing his own music at 17. The Cannes-based artist released his 5-track EP Paris La Nuit this year, which features an eclectic mix of pop songs that have a musical maturity far greater than Blanc's 22 years of existence. His voice sounds a lot like Thomas Mars of Phoenix, particularly on the track 'You Me and It.' Fellow Frenchmen Venice Beach give this title track their magic disco touch, adding a beat and some disco drama to this lush production.
Moullinex: 'Take My Pain Away (Gigamesh Remix)'
We are hotly anticipating the debut album release of Portugese act Moullinex this month. In addition to various singles and EPs he has put out, Moullinex (a.k.a. Luis Clara Gomes) has remixed everyone from Cut Copy to Two Door Cinema Club. Moullinex showed his versaility with last year's 'Sunflare', a lush and soulful track much different from his typical club-ready style. Minnesotan remix genius Gigamesh lends his skills to this first single from Moullinex's upcoming Flora. The new track has slick synths, a robust disco beat and all-around seamless production.
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. It's music that will make you dance, dream, and most importantly, love.
