Nirvana – 'Polly (BrunoBe Remix)'
I was obsessed with Nirvana in middle school and most Nirvana fans would probably agree that the thought of a dance remix to any of their tracks is borderline sacrilege. Leave it to Brazilian BrunoBe to tackle this seemingly un-mixable song and create an impressive deep house remix. BrunoBe layers the original vocals over futuristic synths and bass-lines that mimic the original track, bringing this classic piece of alternative music into the 21st century and thankfully removing some of the sadness as well.
Spin Doctors – 'Princes (G Templeton & Branded James Remix)'
Keeping on with the 90's nostalgia wave, here is a much lighter affair from L.A.-based G Templeton and Branded James. The duo has attacked one of the most popular songs of the 90's and given it a sunny Nu Disco wash that still maintains the fun energy of the original, making it the welcome "blast from the past" that you didn't even realize you desired.
Anna Lunoe & Flume – 'I Met You'
This song has been shuffling around on my iPod for quite some time and it makes me so happy every time I hear it that I'd be remiss not to share it with you. The beautiful video complements the breezy production by Flume and Lunoe that begs you to 'slip and slide' with Lunoe's pretty vocals as she tells the tale of newfound love.
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.
