Today’s column starts with a “Throwback Thursday” moment, back to 2013 when we initially shared ‘So Good,’ by Mayer Hawthorne & Jake One‘s combined act, Tuxedo. The duo just released their eponymous full length album and are currently touring the world. Disco don Dimitri From Paris gives their lead single a fresh update by peppering the track with his signature synths and funky grooves. It’s also available as free download to celebrate Dimitri’s hitting 5 million Soundcloud streams.

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.
Be sure to check out these tracks and more on Soundcloud. For more information on OXD, check out our website and accompanying blog at www.occupythedisco.com, like us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter: @OccupyTheDisco.
