hostage loves rave. and discodust loves hostage. i won't introduce him for the 25th time on here, hostage has been a discodust favorite for ages, if you don't know him yet, you might want to check the archives. here we go with his latest floorfiller 'snake charmer' where he perfectly combines his trademark old school rave synths and shuffled fidgety grooves:
hostage - snake charmer
also make sure to get 'stab up', another premiere on discodust, a bouncing banger featuring nearly every kind of rave signals and broken beats, which had some massive airplay on radio 1. don't miss:

(UPDATE: the people over at noise porn want to let you know that 'snake charmer' is an 'exclusive' on their blog (see the comments). then again it was probably not that exclusive as i just downloaded it from alan's myspace for this post but oh well.)

i intended to leave the underworld and fake blood post on top for a little longer but just came across another gem in my bursting inbox: 'the saviour of irish music' jape remixed by phones also known as paul epworth, famous for his productions for bloc party and the futureheads.
phones delivers a great remix that deserves the tag 'electro house' a lot more than all the dead boring stuff that usually ends up in the 'electro house' crates these days. phones combines elaborated drum patterns and rather basic synth sounds to a very effective dancefloor stomper which you can hear right now:
jape - i was a man (phones mix)
the 'i was a man' single by jape is coming out on june 2nd followed by the album 'ritual'. watch out for these upcoming releases and while you are waiting, make sure to become myspace friends with phones and jape.

this just hit my inbox: a brandnew fake blood remix for the upcoming underworld single 'ring road', taken from their current album 'oblivion with bells'. as they should need no introduction, here is the track right away, it holds no big surprises but is just as great and solid as all the recent fake blood reworks:
underworld - ring road (fake blood remix)
other remixes in the package include laidback luke and kris menace and it will be officially released on may 7th on underworldlive.com. show fake blood and underworld some myspace love!

louis la roché from the uk is only 17 years old and is on a mission to bring back french house. obviously he is doing a good job, as someone sent his track 'love' to a few blogs claiming that it's a new jam by thomas bangalter from daft punk and he even managed to trick some of the best out there.
so no matter what you think about this 'scam' or who was behind it, louis la roché delivers some damn good tunes and he just decided to release 'the peach ep' for free download, consisting of five true old school french house tunes, based on more or less well-known looped and cut-up samples, among them the famous 'love'.
not all of them are actual peak time material but louis la roché definitely conducted some very handy dj-tools and you should just love him for bringing actual french house back to our attention and hopefully to the floors. get the ep right here, along with lovely cover artwork and all:
louis la roché - the peach ep (on sharebee)
if you don't want to go for the whole ep for some reason, here are the individual tracks. 'peach' (what a killer sample!) and 'get on down' are my current favorites but i basically love all of them:
louis la roché - peach
louis la roché - on the floor
louis la roché - love
louis la roché - do you remember
louis la roché - get on down
show louis la roché some myspace love, he deserves way more friends and don't you agree with thomas bangalter and dj falcon that we've got so much love to give?

this just came in from our friends at modular - lifelike's '1 serious remix' of 'are you the one!' by the presets. i am a bit in a rush right now, so i will just quote the mail:
"a party throwdown that joins the old with the new, this barnstorming new interpretation of 'are you the one' has been masterly brought to 'life' by french whiz-kid lifelike. lifelike has stamped his name resoundingly onto the minds of electronica fans the world-over. his '1 serious remix' of 'are you the one' gives a respectful nod-of-the-head to the original track, but is a true reappropriation in its delivery. for presets connoisseurs, this represents the closest thing to a bridge between 'beams' and their sophomore album 'apocalypso'. in a genre-spotting sense, lifelike has spawned a track that sits somewhere between a raw, industrial, noise aesthetic, and filtered disco 2am party jam."
the presets - are you the one (lifelike's 1 serious remix)
show the presets, lifelike and modular some myspace love and make sure to check out 'apocalypso', the new album by the presets as well as the stellar remixes for their latest singles 'my people' and "this boy's in love".

i thought i've heard enough remixes of 'ironical sexism' by revolte after grum and we are terrorists were done with it but 21 years old producer blanche dubois from boston/new jersey just proved me wrong.
his take on 'ironical sexism' combines driving drums, uplifting synth chord stabs, vintage synths and chopped up vocals to a very melodic yet banging eighties-flavoured dancefloor killer that will get everyone moving. check it out right here:
revolte - ironical sexism (blanche dubois remix)
blanche dubois is currently recording a single for vicious pop digital and is looking for new remix and production offers. show him some myspace love and in case you missed the other revolte remixes we featured about three weeks ago, go here.

loose shus has been making music for about 7 years. as so often on discodust recently, his music is very eighties-flavoured but loose shus does this in his very own way, going a lot further down the road while others are only scratching the surface. he draws a lot of inspiration from old vhs tapes, finds the weirdest samples and experiments with various recording techniques, as you can read in this interview on ohh! crapp.
whatever loose shus does though, he ends up with tracks that work perfectly on nowadays parties and sound so fresh as if he just brought them back with him from the future, yet his songs contain vintage elements that everyone else has long forgotten. i was lucky enough to get ahold two of his latest works, namely 'total fox' and 'threesome' and both of them are as good as their titles suggest, so get to know loose shus right now and enjoy another discodust exclusive first:
loose shus - total fox
loose shus - threesome
make sure to add loose shus on myspace and have a close look at his page, as it is pure eye candy! i seriously hope we will hear more from him soon. (oh, i think i am in love!)

el guincho (known to his friends as pablo díaz-reixa) from barcelona, delivers a rather unusual mixture of 'spanish chanting, thudding tribal rhythms, ghostly harmonies, and the bits and pieces of a thousand as-yet-unwritten pop songs' (quote from the pitchfork album review, score: 8.3/10), ending up in some kind of 'samba psychedelia' or even more on point, he has also been called a 'one-man carnival'.
his remix for the upcoming cd ep of australian experimental indie collective architecture in helsinki called 'like it or not' just ended up in my inbox and the daredevil i am, i am taking the risk and decided that it's about time to broaden your musical horizon again and bring some tropical flavour to all of you. so if you are up to hear something new, check his remix out right here - like it or not!
architecture in helsinki - like it or not (el guincho remix)
the ep also features a remix by max tundra and architecture in helsinki and el guincho are touring australia together in may. here are two more el guincho jams from his album 'alegranza!' - the very catchy sixties flavoured 'palmitos park' and the plain weird neverending looping 'antillas'.
el guincho - palmitos park
el guincho - antillas
show el guincho and architecture in helsinki some myspace love. and no fear, i'll safely take you from the carnival back inside the disco in a bit.

now here comes some serious disco shit from sarajevo. the song is 'tzaka-tzaka celophane', the name is greg punkov. he's been talked about on cbs lately and when you're brave enough to put on your headphones for 8 minutes of string inferno you'll know why. as for greg punkov himself he works as a radio dj, producer and runs his own netlabel called oscilator.
other than that he organizes parties and festivals all around the balkans. the fact that he's not signed yet or noticed all around the globe just because he is not located in one of the hot spots where oh so hip italo disco is happening right now is a shame. like in "it's a shame i didn't get this girl's number the other night".
greg punkov - tzaka-tzaka celophane
make sure to give this guy a shot, check out his other tunes on oscilator, show him some passionate myspace love and don't forget where the sun's rising.

we have previously featured combo from portugal with his original tune 'just change' over here and now he is back with two remixes for uk disco glam pop band heads we dance and american banger conductor culture prophet. while his remix of 'loose 79' is an italo-vibe track driven by a wobbly synth line covered with dancepunk style vocals, his take on 'my heart is set on you' is a neverending jam session somewhere in-between french house and miami vice hair metal.

designer drugs are michael (pictured above) and theo from new york and are definitely among the top upcoming electro producers in the states. i wanted to feature them on here for ages but was quite late on discovering them at all and then i decided to hold out until they have some new material ready. of course it was well worth the wait, designer drugs just keep getting better. sound-wise, imagine bangers going really melodic and catchy, up there with the more uplifting tunes by mstrkrft but with a very special own formula.
so i am glad to have two yet unblogged remixes by designer drugs for my post today. the first one is a remix for indie band protokoll from san diego, their ep is out on iheartcomix and you can get it from itunes. as so many other tracks on the blogs lately, this one is also taken from the iheartcomix mixtape by franki chan (thanks for the heads up!).
designer drugs turn the track into a real driving dancefloor stomper alternating between catchy vocal parts and a great lead synth. get the track right now:
protokoll - moving forward (designer drugs remix)
next up is their newest remix for a track called "les gens pour ce qu'ils sont" by french electro-rockers flou, make sure to check them out on their myspace. designer drugs manage to take it even higher though and this track will work just as good on the floor as 'moving forward'.
flou - les gens pour ce qu'ils sont (designer drugs remix)
and finally, here is the track that initially made me realize just how good designer drugs are and that they're totally different to all those random bedroom producers we come across lately.
their remix for 'heaven' by hail social (who have an excellent choice when it comes to remixers) is still one of my favorite tunes even though i have had it for months, so if you don't have it yet, don't miss it. thanks to travis at bigstereo for putting the track up, i guess i wouldn't make it through the day without designer drugs any more these days (pun intended?).
hail social - heaven (designer drugs mix)
show designer drugs some myspace love and let's hope they will become really huge this year!

once again we at discodust have the pleasure to provide you with a mixtape from no love lost records, this time by our long time favorite felix cartal. here we go with the write-up by lee from no love lost records:
"no love lost records is very excited to bring you an exclusive mix by one of our favourite upcoming djs and tunesmiths, vancouver's rising star, felix cartal. the mix felix cartal has crafted for our mixtape project is a contorted and head spinning journey across twenty of today's most thunderous electro slayers. this mix is lethal, truly. residing perfectly alongside tunes by folks like fukkk offf, alter ego, sébastien léger, junkie xl et al, are four of felix cartal's own killer tracks and his razor sharp remix of lazaro casanova's 'venganza'. felix cartal's significant production and dj dexterity continue to cement him as heir apparent in the hard electro stakes. this is one of the most intense mixes we have featured since those scallywag italian beetroots destroyed our sense of time and space with their nigh on flawless beatific rage of a mix. share the love with felix cartal via his myspace."
check the comments for the full tracklist and now enjoy another exclusive mixtape here on discodust:

in addition, here is one of the latest remixes by felix cartal, done for franz & shape, a first on discodust as well:

overthrill are from germany and that's about everything they want you to know. that's fine with me too, less to write and more focus on the music then. they hooked me up with two tunes and i am pretty sure the banger fans will love them.
first is 'revolver', an original tune by overthrill with sebastian or mr. oizo style cut & chop techniques incorporating a lot of futuristic sounds, spacey chords and my favorite thing ever: vocoders! also up is one of their remixes for 'would you' by noah who held a remix competition that overthrill have won. i would expect no less from this monster built with layers of distorted synths and screeching guitars, an epic breakdown and my favorite thing ever: vocoders!
overthrill - revolver
noah - would you (overthrill remix)
show overthrill some much deserved myspace love and expect to hear more from them on discodust in the near future.

parallels is back. if you are a regular reader, you remember the post from back then and in case you don't: parallels is the live drummer for crystal castles and i definitely consider him one of the best producers of vintage vibe robot disco tunes these days.
unfortunately i kind of lost contact to him after the post and just saw he has two new tunes and a mix out over at the always refreshing, never forgetting (the 80s) valerie blog and i couldn't help myself but post them here as well. enjoy two new epic space operas by parallels named 'magnetics' and 'dry blood':
parallels - magnetics
parallels - dry blood
i also highly recommend that you check out his 'back to earth' mix that he has done exclusively for valerie featuring a great selection of old and new electro-flavoured disco ranging from stevie nicks and mirage to heartbreak and the revolving eyes. check the comments for the full track list and either get it from my friends or from one of the additonal mirrors i uploaded it to right here:

i have tons of tracks to post tonight and i'll start it off with the most perfect pop song i have heard in a while. according to some of you this probably won't fit in on discodust but as i like it a lot, it does. got it?
just like the prodigy, squarepusher and blur, essex is the hometown of esser, the band surrounding ben esser. 'i love you' is a real indie pop gem with witty lyrics driven by fuzzed-up bass. the nme calls it 'playschool pirate pop' and that really suits it well. so let's see if you are too mature to love it too:
esser - i love you
esser - i love you video on youtube
show esser some myspace love and keep an eye out for 'i love you' dropping as a limited seven-inch release with 'long arms' on the flipside on merok, the label that brought us klaxons, crystal castles and the teenagers.

brandon mitchell is altair nouveau. one might want to know what an altair is, either it's a bright star or one of the first personal computers. altair nouveau has got something of both, and something new as the name indicates (it's french, yeah?). anyhow, his sound is somewhere in between late 70s neurotic pop, ny disco of all decades and reminds me of stuff valerie dropped lately.
altair nouveau - space fortress
altair nouveau - cosmos
brandon works in a seattle record-shop where he's collecting all those little gems that influence his music: from moroder, goblin, vangelis and carpenter to in flagranti, dfa, prins thomas and lindstrom plus some rare obscurities. all that is processed in his classic home studio creating a sound perfectly fitted for mirrorballs and laserlights. big time for pigtailed girls and goofy-dressed guys. mark my words.
altair nouveau - sorcerer
so if you're into brown sweaters, erlend oyesque styles and nervous disco tunes you'll probably love altair nouveau. check his homepage for further tracks and don't forget to show him some love at his myspace.

on with two great remixes for finnish electro/pop/disco house outfit the millioners. thanks to nik over at the always amazing bibabidi and my friend russ chimes for bringing this to my attention who is in fact responsible for one of the remixes. the second remix comes from italian vintage hero rodion who is also signed to gomma, just like so many artists in our recent posts. seems they are everywhere!
both remixes are very disco-inspired while russ chimes keeps his trademark style of lovely chords and very playful vintage synthesizer melodies, rodion is more on the dubbed out space disco side of things. make sure to get them both and pick your own favorite:
the millioners - body into use (russ chimes remix)
the millioners - body into use (rodion casiocore remix)

keenhouse was born in the eighties, is half german, half indonesian, grew up in the forest and is now residing in los angeles. you have probably heard him before on the alone in the future mix by minitel rose over at our darlings from valerie.
keenhouse produces very catchy songs with a french touch, always being very playful and musically elevated, yet all of his tunes will want to make you dance immediately. i think it has been a while since we have unearthed such a great talent and i really mean it.
i am sure he will be approached by a lot of other bloggers soon and his inbox will be flooded with remix requests. that's what we are here for though and you know where you've heard him first. enough words now, enjoy two tracks by keenhouse, i assure you that you'll love both:
keenhouse - deep in the forest
keenhouse - mechomaniac

here we go with one more for the bangers squad today, as i have just received a mail from the great people over at back yard recordings along with a special recommendation of neil from tronik youth. it's the first remix of uprising dj team thoughtless hussies from london & nottingham in the uk. looking at their myspace info, they have played in like every hyped english, german and french venue with about everyone who has been hot in the past years and now they are finally producing tracks as well.
their banging remix of 'pets dance' by s.p.a. will definitely cause destruction on the dancefloor, so pick it up right here and play it loud:
s.p.a. - pets dance (thoughtless hussies remix)
so if tronik youth, back yard and discodust got love for them, why wouldn't you show them some myspace love?

a while ago, my friends from hot pink delorean hooked me up with a tune named 'load rocket' by a friend of them, member of the drum & bass crew evol intent, just like treasure fingers. i even had a longer chat with the guy back then but seems like we've missed each other recently, as his tunes were just posted on missingtoof and he now goes by the name of computer club.
i was pretty excited about 'load rocket' back then and i am still now, it's a furious banger track knocking out everyone who dares to get in the way and with some support from you djs out there, it should definitely be huge. grab it right here:
computer club - load rocket
as a bonus, here is another computer club track, a cover version of 'bizarre love triangle' by new order:
computer club - bizarre love triangle
show computer club some love and stay tuned for an official release dropping soon!

artwork by the zonders.
the diamond cutting room are two barely legal girls from down under who just finished their first bunch of tracks. 'ready to fly' is already rated as one of the sure shots for the upcoming party season by ibiza's leading djs. and i can only agree - over the top catchy vocals, lovely piano chords and a lot of spacey synths will make this a perfect soundtrack for the early morning hours on the beach.
sabrina and sam prepared both dub and vocal versions, grab them right here:
the diamond cutting room - ready to fly (diamond cut dub)
the diamond cutting room - ready to fly (diamond cut vocal club mix)
show the girls some myspace love. and yes, i am aware of the fact that if you are only into bangers, this most likely won't be for you, but i am in the mood for some uplifting summervibes, so in case you aren't, put some of the recent discodust bangers on repeat, stay tuned for the upcoming posts or just choke on your hate, kthx.

my man felix cartal (who is responsible for the first discodust exclusive ever, anyone remember 'moss vs. tree'? yeah, right!) hooked me up with a great remix for the next franz & shape single. unfortunately it turned out that i can't post it yet. so greg over at panda toes is the winner because he got an unreleased felix cartal remix as well, for 'pick your poison' by mr miyagi from sweden who have also previously been featured on discodust.
go see felix cartal on his tour with the bloody beetroots and la riots, watch the promo video on youtube. also watch out for an upcoming exclusive mixtape from felix cartal on your favorite blog (that's discodust!) featuring his still unreleased outstanding remix for lazara casanova. but for now, get his ever so banging mr miyagi remix right here:
mr miyagi - pick your poison (felix cartal remix)
and as i am always striving to give you more, here we go with an unreleased chromeo remix by mr miyagi which unfortunately did not make it on the final release:
chromeo - fancy footwork (mr miyagi remix)
show felix cartal and mr miyagi some myspace love, just in case you aren't loyal readers and haven't already.
