Du Tonc, “Surging Memories”
When Matt Van Schie (of Van She, obviously) and Mighty Mouse get together, they create driving nu-disco that’s not afraid to wear a little pop on its sleeve. Their second track as Du Tonc, “Surging Memories,” is upbeat and warm with a masterfully orchestrated breakdown in the middle.

Drop Out Orchestra featuring Vinny Vero, “Be Free With Your Love” (Opolopo Dub)
Grab this funky retro-pop dub from the Soundcloud or grab the entire EP from Juno like we did.
The original mix of “Be Free With Your Love” is also available as part of Mighty Mouse’s Disco Circus Volume 4, available through the Amazon MP3 store. 33 tracks and two full-length DJ mixes for $9 strikes us as a heck of a deal.
Five tracks of uplifting new house and nudisco, just as the kids of today like it. Right-click here to download.
Mighty Mouse, Disco Circus (Volume 4) Minimix
Out next week in the US, currently available in the UK, the newest entry in Mighty Mouse’s excellent Disco Circus series sounds like a real corker from what they’ve put together for this mashup. We very much look forward to downloading!
Du Tonc, “Darkness”
The first single from the new project uniting Matt Van Schie (of Van She) and Mighty Mouse sounds exactly like we thought it might: deeply groovy and full of emotion even as it stays on the more precise end of things. It snuck out the door on January but has gained momentum since, for obvious reasons.
Mighty Mouse, “Love Is Gonna Lift You Up” (Sunrise Mix)
Best dance track we’ve heard so far this year.
Monarchy (featuring Dita Von Teese), “Disintegration” (Mighty Mouse Remix)
That Hutt-sized bassline. The Hutt-sized bassline , you guys. That makes it easy to ignore the gimmicky (and let’s face it, slightly terrible) vocals from the burlesque equivalent of Jay-Z.
Seasfire, “How Do You Sleep” (Mighty Mouse Remix)
We’ve never heard of Seasfire (probably because we’re old and myopic,) but we’ve definitely heard of Mighty Mouse and so here you are. Favorite part is the almost hilariously fat bassline that kicks in around 1:30; it’s so simple but so effective.
Five tracks, mixed while Kevin enjoyed his morning coffee. It starts off cool and mournful before going spacy, ecstatic and disco. It’s not perfect, but we’re fond of it. As always, right-click to download for the best sound quality.
