C2C: 'Genius (Yuksek Remix)'
One of our weekly readers introduced us to DJ-band C2C this past week (Thanks Spencer!) and coincidentally this remix of their 2012 track 'Genius' dropped at the same time. The group, which hails from Nantes, France, is a self-described four piece 'turntable band' that has won multiple international DJing competitions. Producer Yuksek, also known as part of Peter and the Magician, puts his own spin (pun intended) on 'Genius', adding in classic pianos and an increasingly cascading beat.
Goldroom feat. Mereki: 'Only You Can Show Me'
Los Angeles' Goldroom, also known as Josh Legg, has been producing and writing tropically-inspired vocal house tunes for the past year to much fanfare here at OXD. His last single, Sweetness Alive, showcases his nostalgic and breezy sound which continues on with his latest, 'Only You Can Show Me.' This song was featured as the first track on The Magician's Magic Tape 30 before its official release. The track's vocalist, Mereki, will join Goldroom to provide vocals for his live tour. Hopefully this song is a taste of what's to come of the great summer music months, much like in 2012 when poolside tunes like this one were in sheer abundance.
Alan Braxe: 'Time Machine (Le Crayon Remix)'
Alan Braxe has made quite a name for himself with his legendary original tracks, collaborative works with Fred Falke and Kris Menace, and remixes for the likes of Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Beyoncé, and Jamiroquai. He's back with a slightly melancholy, repetitive new track for Scion AV titled 'Time Machine.' Hot up-and-comer Le Crayon, a recent Kitsuné Records signee, adds a decidely happier bass line and disco beats that perfectly complemented my morning jog.
