Todd Edwards: 'Hold The Faith (Le Nonsense Edit)'
Todd Edwards has been producing and remixing since the early 90s, and is known for using vocal reconstruction on tracks in place of instrumentals, a technique inspired by fellow producers MK and Todd Terry. Edwards is a Christian and has always injected various religious message into his compositions, usually lyrically, though in this case the song title is pretty straightforward. French funk and nu-disco producer Le Nonsense wasn't even born when Edwards started producing in 1992, but has provided a wonderful remix for this song that is available as a free download. The 18 year old producer has been creating some sophisticated reworks as a hobby for a few years now, and his slick mature sound lines up nicely on this track from a veteran.
Miami Horror: 'Real Slow (ft. Sarah Chernoff)'
Miami Horror is back after 2011's fantastic debut album, Illumination. The four piece band originally hail from Melbourne but have recently relocated to Los Angeles, and their new locale's influence can be heard in their latest track, 'Real Slow'. A new album is expected in spring of 2014, so until then hopefully this and perhaps another single will tide us over.
Decibels: 'Regulator/Moderator (Mighty Mouse Remix)'
Midlands, UK-based band Decibels describes their sound as "a blissful mix of lo-fi, ambient, electro and Indie." 'Regular/Moderator' is a single that came out late last year and is just now seeing a remix EP, featuring edits by the likes of Bufi, Tronik Youth, and of course friend to OXD Mighty Mouse, who contributes his famous upbeat disco sound.
