Free Download: Erykah Badu - On & On (Diskobeistet Remix)

Erykah Badu's incredible 1997 debut single On & On surely is one of the best to ever launch a career in music. It's awesome, insightful, unique and thought-provoking. We've loooved it since the very first time we heard it. The original production is one for the ages and we're crazy for the restraint and subtle emotional charges in it. Norwegian Diskobeistet amps up the mood and even throws in some *tropical* flavours in there. N i c e! That new bassline sends us straight into party mode on a slow Sunday night. Top notch! It feels like a brand new track almost - imagine Erykah's vox on an original house track - we'd be soaring! Enjoy the dl below!

Premiere: Florence + The Machine - What Kind Of Man (Nicolas Jaar Remix)

Florence + The Machine's electrifying lead single What Kind Of Man truly jump started the How Big How Blue How Beautiful (out June 1st) album era a few weeks ago. Its fiery heart and punky outlook is hypnotizing, especially when paired to those gory visuals and choreography. Deep house producer Nicolas Jaar injects a whole new kind of energy with his 12+ minute remix. It's dark and brooding and transfixes you with the messed up vocals and when the electronica kicks in it's sweet with a steely aftertaste. It's disco with a strange kick. Coffee with a shot of whiskey. Flo with a set of sharp knives. Something is wrong but it's impossible to look away. Real awesome! Thoughts?

Free Download: Dolly Parton - Jolene (Todd Terje Remix)

Last year we posted this beaut of a bootleg of Dolly Parton's iconic 1973 hit now turned evergreen - Jolene. Here's a new one from Norwegian superhero DJ Todd Terje! The stellar and instantly recognizable guitar riff shines in what seems like an endless loop. We're getting some trippy vibes from a superb cocktail bar where the drinks are long and the tears taste of champagne. Imagine a full Dolly remix album utilizing the original acapella tracks and original stems - we'd be flying! Go grab the download below, enjoy!

Premiere: Björk - Notget (Lotic Remix)

It's crazy how you can go from missing someone is the best way possible to have the longing shift into severe pain. Björk's Vulnicura album is an odyssey into major heartache and devastation and has truly transfixed us. Thus it's more than fitting that the first official remix is a piercing treatment of Notget by Berlin based Lotic. (His name meaning flowing water, how extra perfect here.) It comes with sharp edges and makes for an uncomfortable listen. It's fragmented and direct, it makes us want to cry and the poetry of the lyrics paired with the slithering beat is really striking. The softer elements in the original are swept away with the sadness and the tide. Listen below! Thoughts?

We carry the same wound
But have different cures
Similar injuries 
But opposite remedies

I will not forget 
This notget
Will you not regret
Having love let go

Premiere: Róisín Murphy - Jealousy (House Mix)

When it rains, it pours! In this case it's raining $$$ billz on us as there is even more new Róisín Murphy! After last week's Hairless Toys announcement and new single Gone Fishing we're getting a one off house 12" that won't be on the album. Hell yas, baby! Get ready for Jealousy, baby! This is the A-side of the vinyl and is known as the "House mix". The b-side is called "Disco mix" and we cannot wait to hear what kind of beat will back Ró up for that one. Co-written and produced by noted DJ Parrot it's a tight and bumpy ride with a dark bassline, vocal loops and a main vox that just won't quit. Love it! The vinyl is out on March 16th via mega DJ Damian Lazarus' label Crosstown Rebels. Niiiice! And oh yeah, this project is mixed by legendary producer/DJ Eric Kupper. Ró sure knows how to pick 'em and it's so damn good to have her back in full force. Enjooooy! Thoughts?!
