Currently obsessing over a new remix from Monarch (Brent Kuztle from OneRepublic’s side project) of LA duo Golden Coast’s debut single “Break My Fall.” Monarch’s remix slows the tempo down and channels the movie Drive. Turn this one up during all your late night cruising sessions.
The upstart Manchester imprint, Love Dose Records is back with their second release and it’s first from an anonymous group of writers, producers and singers known as ‘Rabbithole.’
Soulful vocals, intricate melodies and pop sensibilities permeate three original cuts as Rabbithole takes us thru a wonderland of house grooves that channel a vintage, Chicago flavor. Available as a vinyl only release, due to hit shops 8/26/14, stay up with the lads by following them on your favorite social media:

Federico Durand - La Linterna Magica
From El estanque esmeralda on Spekk. Bandcamp
For this album, I used different kinds of instruments, but I wanted to keep music very simple: little melodies and cassette tapes, some of them from 30 years ago that I found lying on the streets of my city, Buenos Aires. I hope you will enjoy this wander to the Emerald Pond.
Hilarious title for this pretty cool Diplo remix of the Lorde track “Tennis Court”.

Madalyn Merkey - Archipelago
