Satin Jackets Release Funky Nu-Disco Track “Never Enough” Ft. Niya Wells

Le Youth – If You’re Leaving

LA-based producer/DJ Le Youth continues the curation of his Homewerk label with the release of the ‘If You’re Leaving’ remixes. Contrasting electronic visions of the original track from remix maestros Bit Funk, Futurewife, No Way Back and Love N Lerrone are all available to download and stream now via all digital retailers.

Brooklyn’s own Bit Funk is the first one to step up, the former drummer uses 909 cowbells, big electro synth stabs and panning disco lasers taking the track straight back to the 80’s.

Also, reigning from LA and providing his signature blend of bass and groove, is Futurewife. Hinging off Sydnie’s warm vocals, the track soothes with delayed piano stabs, a transfixing drop and a 4/4 dance floor energy.

Keeping strict to the same rhythm, experienced LA-based producer No Way Back, aka Anthony Pisano, lays down a riveting and energetic excursion, with surging atmosphere that keeps the groove rolling.

New York City’s Love N Lerrone takes the track on its final journey; this time we hear a textured production, with the use of deep pad work and a smooth bass line.

This is the third release off Le Youth new label Homewerk and is just a taster for what is to come. For more exciting news, make sure you follow his socials below.

Jerry Bouthier shares video of ‘Yeah! (DJ Tools #1)

Continental’s own A&R and multi-tasking, all around vibe meister DJ drops his debut solo single ‘Yeah!’, the send off to his no-nonsense DJ Tools series on the label.

Pioneer of the Parisian electronic scene, long relocated to London, Jerry Bouthier joins passionately the dot between music and fashion. The resident dj of east London’s infamous and now defunct BoomBox night knows a good tune when he hears one as his Continental label’s output testifies. His celebrated dj mixes for Kitsuné, Emerald & Doreen and his own Heart & Soul series are captivating labours of love that have attracted followers the world over. His stylish upbeat dj sets, blending genres and everything else fancied by this iconoclast Frenchman, never fail to rock the party from one continent to another.

Also a sound-designer for fashion, his post-modern soundtracks for Vivienne Westwood – seamlessly merging classical into world music, punk into cosmic disco and more – have become the stuff of legends. In the studio, he produces as JBAG – his baleariscopop project with Andrea Gorgerino – together they’ve released 4 singles (inc. tropical anthem ‘Mogadisco’) and remixed Two Door Cinema Club, RÜFÜS, Ladyhawke… however it’s now time for a new recording chapter.
Jerry explains why he’s never released a record under his own name before:

“I come from a band/group background and as long as I wasn’t producing tunes strictly on my own, it didn’t seem fair to the other musicians involved in the creative process with me. That’s why we started JBAG for instance, the contribution of my musical sidekick Andrea Gorgerino is huge, it wouldn’t have made sense to release our stuff as Jerry Bouthier…

With time I’ve acquired confidence and felt I could produce some decent DJ tunes on my own, the kind of funky, housey stuff I play in my sets, nothing as musical or song-led as JBAG – it wouldn’t be fun to do the same thing. The idea of delivering a series of DJ Tools soon came to me, you know simple yet effective tracks that work the dancefloor well without fuss…

So I locked myself in the studio with a pile of old vinyl and came up with ‘Yeah!’, my first attempt at going back to house basics, fusing the soulful vocals of yesterday’s NYC dancefloors to the more underground, bassline vibe of London.”
On the remix front Barcelona duo Mordisco, takes the deep house route with a sensual chugger that’ll work its wonders in the early hours. Next another duo, Tel Aviv’s B1ZB1Z, turns out a dreamy disco reinterpretation spiced-up by a zest of indie.

Flatwound – This Can Be Love [infectious disco-house treat]

Step out onto the dance-floor and let your body move to the classic disco-house sounds of ‘‘This Can Be Love’, the brand new single from Australian duo Flatwound.

‘This Can Be Love’ was born out of Flatwound’s (Jack Prest & C.J.Soulman) mutual love for all things outer space and disco related. It’s also just the first taste of their upcoming third album, ‘This Electronic Species’.

“I really wanted to have a joyous jamming track to help celebrate our first release in a while, so I sent this groove to Jack who then nailed the lyric and vamped the chorus, before working in an angular synth-line using a skank guitar groove to create the notes…through “technology”. A few minor tweaks later and the musical answer was born. From there we decided it needed a positive name to go with it” – C.J.Soulman

‘This Can Be Love’ sees Flatwound blending the live-bass sound & style of Chic with an incredibly irresistible French disco-house groove, and a looped 90’s inspired vocal that bubbles its way throughout the track with a hypnotic grace – this track was born to be played loud.

argonaut&wasp – Loser Like You [indie-disco/funk]

‘Loser Like You’ is the latest single from Brooklyn indie-dance crew argonaut&wasp, and it’s also just the first taste of their upcoming debut ep, ‘Ha! Fiction’.

Influenced by the sounds of LCD Soundsystem, Talking Heads and David Bowie, argonaut&wasp have crafted their own unique indie-dance blend with elements of disco, dance and a whole lot of funk. ‘Loser Like You’ is the perfect introduction to their forthcoming ep, as they take us on a musical imagination of the Underdog and the Bully.

“This song was written late at night, in a state of utter confusion, our minds were cluttered with frustration – an internal bully and an internal underdog, how can we express this feeling of internal conflict but to have these two characters, these two iconic figures come to life through a narrative. We had them play out in our songwriting, the sound design, and the creation of this piece.” – argonaut&wasp

‘Loser Like You’ opens with a chilled tropical-island vibe and a narrative intro. As the story begins to unfold, the song in-turn continues to build until it erupts in an uplifting arrangement of funky guitars, seductive bass, pulsating drums and smooth disco grooves.
