Tupper Ware Remix Party – The Hit (Whaleskin Remix)

Tupper Ware Remix Party - The Hit (Whaleskin Remix)

The title of the artist at hand was what initially peaked my interest about this track. The more I delved into the background history behind the Tupper Ware Remix Party, the more I realized that these guys were true genius’s of our generation. Blending an obvious Daft Punk influence with a more 80’s style retro styling – together with a prog-rock energy that can’t be matched, the band has some serious potential (they’ve even been spotted on Canada’s Got Talent).

But hold up, this isn’t just another TWRP track – the tune has been remixed by nu-disco/house producer Whaleskin.

Lending his 4-on-the-floor disco sensibilities and retro synth gear to the mix, the vibes are then taken to a whole new level. Whaleskin exhibits a career of sexy disco remixes of friends but also a few originals, most of which are available for free download! Plug this shit in, and go for a drive ’cause the Sunset’s in the Rearview and  night-time’s comin’.

Body Language – Grammar EP

As promised:

Body Language dropped their latest EP, Grammar, today. It’s less dance-y than I was expecting but still super silky, as per usual for this Brooklyn electro group. More like nod-your-head-with-a-weird-smile-and-flailing-your-arms-in-a-bizarre-dance-move-thing kind of sound. Or at least that’s what I’m doing right now.

“Lose My Head” is as seductive as it sounded a few days ago when I posted about the track. “The First” has a slightly different feel than the group’s standard stuff. I feel like it’s the kind of song I’m going to be belting in my car while I drive around the burbs (the only difference being that I cannot actually hit the high notes like singer Matt Young does when he belts the chorus). On “I’m A Mess,” lead singers Young and Angelica Bess’s voices blend together real smoothly for another great listen.

Their FB page says they’ll be releasing a full-length album in 2013, which is yet ANOTHER reason for the world not to end in December. Jeez, the list just doesn’t end…

Body Language – Lose My Head

Spotted the new track from Body Language on All Things Go, and immediately fell in love. You should, too.

“Lose My Head” is a single off the upcoming Grammar EP, which drops on September 18, so you can bet that I will be reviewing dat ish. This track is sick-groovy (I promise, that’s a thing). It encapsulates all you need to know about this electro/nu-disco group: thumping beats and harmonic choruses. One of the band members said it best in their Facebook info blurb: “We get the same joy and satisfaction out of losing our shit behind a pair of turntables as we do singing four-part harmonies.”

Check it out below and hold your breath for Tuesday.

[EP] Para One & Tacteel – Fair Enough

Para One & Tacteel

The French duo Para One & Tacteel – long-time collaborators, if you know what I mean – released the Fair Enough EP in July, 2011 . The eclectic electronic album sounds as if it is simultaneously piped from Purgatory and a shared two-man cell on Stutter Island.

I immediately loved A1 and Rome, but Touch! has that age-old attractiveness that grows on you; that sound that’s hard to pin down. It sounds a bit like two robots beat-battling on electrified calfskin drums filled to the brim with mercury poisoning. Enchanting in a dangerous way.

MP3“Touch!” – Para One & Tacteel

In just 5 songs the duo demonstrates their dexterity; each song is distinct from the rest, with Tin Drum and Always awkwardly waiting their turn to perform. I’m not sure how many French people put down their baguettes long enough to give the 5-song collection a listen, but it was well worth the 22 American minutes in my opinion. I hereby award Fair Enough with the Silver metal of Mercury, whatever that means.
