Alunageorge is a UK duo made up of singer Aluna Francis and DJ George Reid from where else, but London. The single off their EP titled the same name, “You Know You Like It” is a wicked track that sounds like the lovechild of Disclosure and Bondax, two UK duos who are past the “up-and-coming” phase and are at the “here-to-stay” phase, producing moody dance tunes that shoot through the blogosphere and the dancefloor every time a new track is released (Alunageorge, Disclosure and Bondax should have a sixsome and give birth to the ultimate twin). Bondax showed UK love and remixed this track, and as usual they treat us with a sick sampling of vocals and I can’t get enough of Aluna’s sultry voice. My only disappointment is that the song doesn’t last long enough. Having said that, the B-15 Project’s remix is very tastefully done as well – the UK garage producer team gives the original track a facelift that makes it dancefloor ready.
So I’m just gonna go ahead and say it…you know you like “You Know You Like It”. Download the track below, and check out the remixes by Bondax and B-15 Project!
Meet L’Étranger, Vanguard and Alan Braxe. They produce French Touch, also known as French House. My lack of vocabulary will probably butcher the genre of French Touch/French house, but it’s the funky hooks, those disco sounds – you know what I mean – and groovy vocals that puts you in dance mode pronto. French house is also sometimes referred to as neu-disco and I think that name describes more aptly what this genre is – new disco music for our generation. Continue reading

Have you guys heard of Jai Paul yet? If you haven’t, you. have to. now. Jai Paul is a singer-songwriter from the UK, and released his debut track “BTSTU” under XL Recordings a year ago. Jai Paul has made a return with demo track “Jasmine” which fails to impress with high quality of production. Continue reading
Kocha here. I usually post on obscure music like space disco and tropical vibes but I HAD to make a post on on this song because 1. Kaskade is one of my favorite DJ’s and 2. this song is damn good. Kaskade remixed Usher’s “Climax” produced by Diplo to be a bangin’ club hit and it is awesome. It has “Kaskade sex music” written all over it, with the signature mellow moments of piano keys and silky, melodic vocals of who else but Usher. It’s party time. Ladies, go ahead and fantasize about a threesome with Kaskade and Usher to this song.
On Friday night, I saw Space Dimension Controller at Club Twentyone in Florence, Italy. It was hosted by LATTEX+, a project aimed at providing cutting-edge clubbing and music scene based in Florence.I have never heard of this guy before and had no idea he was going to be playing in Florence but RCP contributor saravasti gave me the heads-up and I am so, so glad she did because it turned out to be the sickest night I’ve experienced in Florence so far. Space Dimension Controller is a space disco DJ, and rather than provide the little knowledge I acquired on space disco in the past two days, I am going to redirect you to this article by the folks over at pitchfork.com that gives a really good overview on what space disco is and recommends artists. They describe it as being “dance music informed not only by 30 years of disco records, but by every other record out there as well: There is no agenda to fit them all in, but at the same time, there is no rule that says you can only play one kind of music. Electro, fusion, prog, krautrock: Somehow, all of this exists in the same continuum of space music.” Continue reading
I know this is a late post, but I have to share my first Sensation experience. Excuse my profanity, but it was unfuckingreal. Besides feeling as if we were transported to a fantasy land beyond Earth, I love that Sensation combines raging shitshow with class and style. It was an extremely well-organized, banging party.
