MOONLIGHT MATTERS – COME TO ME (Electro – Belgium)

Moonlight Matters

After almost two years producing disco-infused beats as one half of Villa, Sebastiaan Vandevoorde is now striking out on his own with his solo project Moonlight Matters. He has already produced a string of acclaimed remixes for the likes of Charlotte Gainsbourg, Monarchy, Alex Winston, Digitalism, Lana del Rey or Is Tropical

For his debut EP, Come For Me, Vandevoorde enlisted a few friends, such as Gustaph from Hercules & The Love Affair and Straving yet Full (of Azari & III fame) who provide vocals on “Come for Me” and “Standing Up For Love” respectively. Note that the download bundle also features remixes by Jerry, Herr Styler and Punks Jump Up.

All in all the EP includes three original tracks and it’s available now via Kitsuné. For some reason Mighty Mouse’s epic 7-minute remix of the title song didn’t quite make the cut for the official release, which is strange given how deliciously infectious it actually is. But fear not because Moonlight Matters has decided to release it anyway as a free download via his Soundcloud page.

DIGITALISM – CIRCLES REMIX EP (Electro/Club – Germany)

Digitalism

German dance duo Digitalism is on fire! Six months after the release of their acclaimed album, I Love You Dude,  the pair set out for a massive North American tour last month and they are launching two remix EPs at the same time. Both releases support their über addictive single “Circles”, which seems to be an unlimited source of inspiration for remixers since we have a solid 5 remixes all in all. The guest list includes Moonlight Matters, Eric Prydz, Jeremy Olander, Dillon Francis, and to top it off Digitalism provide the last remix!

PACIFIC! – UNSPOKEN (Pop/Electro – Sweden)

Swedish duo Pacific! are back with a stunning new EP, released a few months ago on Alan Braxe’s label Vulture Music. Featuring Gothenburg-based El Perro Del Mar (aka Sarah Assbring), the song first appeared on Pacific!’s 2010 sophomore album Narcissus but this EP includes a whooping five remixes for your listening pleasure.

On remix duties, you will find some of the hottest talents around: Alex Gopher & Pierrick Devin (best known for his work as 25 Hours A Day and his collaboration with Adam Kesher), Santiago & Bushido, Moonlight Matters and Anoraak.

You can sample two of the remixes right here: the first is a pumped-up electro disco remix by Moonlight Matters and the second is a more laid back 80s-tinged version by synthpop rising star Anoraak.

LO-FI-FNK – THE LAST SUMMER (ElectroPop – Sweden)

This sure has been a long time coming but Lo-Fi-Fnk‘s sophomore album The Last Summer is finally here! It took over six years for this duo of perfectionists to follow up on their 2005 debut full-length Boylife, although they did reward their loyal fans with a few EPs here and there to ease wait. Singles such as “Marchin’ In”, “Sleepless” and “Boom” were so strongly received and helped build further anticipation for the new album.

Ahead of the release, Leonard Drougge and August Hellsing put together a collection of amazing remixes of “Boom”, including reworkings by Moonlight Matters, Yelle DJs (Tepr & Grandmarnier), Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman and Weekend Wolves. Two remixes are featured below for your listening pleasure. The first is by Belgian producer-du-jour and top remixer Moonlight Matters, who came up with a disco-tinged remix. Number two is a dancefloor-friendly version by Tepr and Grandmarnier. You can stream the whole thing on Soundcloud.

ALEX WINSTON – VELVET ELVIS EP (Pop/Indie – US)

At only twenty one years of age, Detroit-based artist Alex Winston has a lot going for herself. A talented  songwriter and guitarist, Winston released her debut single “Choice Notes” back in August 2010 on HeavyRoc Music, followed by the Sister Wife EP in February 2011. Produced by New York electronic music duo and producer-du-jour The Knocks, this critically acclaimed EP was a collection of tender tracks swathed with infectious sunny melodies and complimented with propelling drum beats.

Now the young lady is in the spotlight again with the imminent release of her brand new EP: Velvet Elvis. Scheduled for release on September 19th via Island Records, it will feature the title track and a couple of lush remixes. On remixing duties, we have remix collective extraordinaire RAC who have created a super cute and catchy rework of the original, with tropical-infused beats and an irresistible hook. The icing on the cake is that RAC are currently giving away this great remix for free on their Soundcloud!
