Kamp!, “Melt” (Zimmer Mix)
We’ve extolled the virtues of Kamp! in the past on this blog and the fact that the new single on Discotexas features remixes by Midnight Magic, Xinobi and ZImmer helps ensure that we’ll continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The melody in this is the centerpiece, with punch beats and a vocal treatment that’s haunting and sweet.
Zimmer, “Bay Bridge”
This has been one of our most consistently played records in 2012, a fixture of the Disco Potential nights at River Gods and a track we put on the office stereo so we could have a mid-day wiggle. We’re glad to see that Zimmer chose to share it on Soundcloud so we could share it with you. Huge basslines, bigger drums and pianos that make your put your hands in the air like a raver in 1992.
Jupiter, “Juicy Lucy” (Zimmer Remix)
We’re big fans of Jupiter here at Disco Potential headquarters, and their album has been in constant rotation since it came out earlier in the year. This remix of the new single is different from both Jupiter and Zimmer’s normal styles, but no less terrific. Always nice to hear burbling acid sounds and a lovely vocal. There’s also a very nice remix by Little Boots.
Chic, “Everybody Dance” (Zimmer Remix)
We can confirm that this, when played near the end of your DJ set, will make the titular event occur. What a thunderous reworking by one of our current favorite producers.
It’s been about two weeks, so hey, here’s another Five Tracks mix. This time we actually did limit it to five songs, and they’re a bit faster and more hands-in-the-air than the last few in the series. We’re actually kind of proud how this one turned out, so if you enjoy it as much as we did putting it together, reblog or use the share link below to tell your friends and neighbors. Alternately, you could just play it very loudly. We’ve been assured that this is an optimal solution. By top…people.
Right-click and “save as” to download it for the best sound quality.
Montevideo, “Horses” (Zimmer Remix)
This has enough swooshing noises and pinging noises and drum noises to keep the Disco Potential staff very happy.
I’m apparently in the mood to do these of late, and I hope you don’t mind. I’ve been looking for a mix where that Talking Heads track would work and here it is. Thanks to all the producers, etc, etc, et-cet-er-ah.
Here is the new Five Tracks mix. It features six songs. I am becoming increasingly bad at counting the number of songs needed for one of these mixes. This one’s a bit faster than the last few and it captures what I’d consider a “peak time” sound for a nu disco night. I hope you enjoy it.
