    Yolanda Be Cool enlist nearest and dearest for epic 'Dance and chant' remix package

      Category: Music Review

    unnamed.jpgYolanda Be Cool know how to hit us in the heartstrings. You’d think the delivery of the glorious ‘Dance and Chant’ to start the year would be enough for our little souls, but here they are to spoil us yet again, with the announce of an epic 6 track remix package for our beloved nu-disco delight. Maybe it’s all the love in the air as we write this mid February, but our boys really do treat us well. With the original sitting on top of the ARIA Club Chart for a solid 5 weeks and counting, we can say these ones are officially tried, tested and certified.
     

    Always the life of the party, and ones to pull a crowd, Yolanda Be Cool have enlisted the help of their nearest and dearest to add their own unique flavours to the mix. First up, our German Queen Lookee, already getting spins across triple j with her remix, getting a bit deeper on the original, focusing on that four-on-the-floor disco beat. Head of Clarisse records, Mendo delivers a VIP and Redmix - transforming the tune into a late night house mix, adding his own eccentric twist with unique saxophone treatments. Lord of lords, DJ Glen, delivers a remix that is somehow the exact auditory version of the ‘Dance and Chant’ release artwork, almost as if from an intro of a sci-fi film, he brings in the bass for his super refined tech house vibes. Tommie Sunshine & SLATIN surpass their own reputation, delivering a remix that is instantly bright and sassy. Perfect for a summers day on Sydney harbour, upping that daytime energy in the breakdown. The acclaimed French nu-disco producer, Mark Lower, utilises sharp and bright beats before transitioning to one of the more laidback and cruisy remixes after the breakdown, whilst homegrown Generik’s mix instantly erupts with energy, transforming the tune into a cheeky mid set stunner.
     

    Yolanda Be Cool have delivered the goods time and time again with multiple international successes over the years including the diamond selling hit ‘We No Speak Americano’, along with ‘Sugar Man’, ‘From Me To You’, and ‘Soul Makossa’. All of which has lead to #1s in over 20 countries, 3 Beatport #1s and a tonne of platinum records throughout Germany, UK and Australia. A duo that continue to work so hard, they will play gigs in Brazil one day, and then back in Sydney the very next. Showing no signs of slowing down, Yolanda Be Cool, are set to play a tonne of shows over the Australian summer before moving on to Asia, Europe, capping it all off back in America.

      When ‘Lord of the Mics’ Jammer, was recently pushed over on stage, in a shock incident at Wiley’s long-standing event ‘Eskimo Dance,’ claims quickly started to arise that it was none other than Premiership football legend Ian Wright who was the culprit.  The claims lead to a social media frenzy with speculation as to why Ian Wright would have been so angered by Jammer and why he was even in attendance at a grime event in the first place.  With confused fans of both parties calling for answers to the many questions that were on everyone’s lips, Ian Wright took to his own Instagram to respond to the whole situation.  The incident then snowballed and the entire scenario made national news.  Setting off a wave of hilarious memes (that included Jammer moonwalking) the story was trending across social media over several days.  Read here: https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest-news/767371/ian-wright-jammer-video-grime-mc-england-push-twitter-eskimo-dance-printworks.

      This event lead Jammer straight into the studio and the result is a track called, yes, you guessed it: 'Ian Wright’ and by the looks of things, Ian fully approves: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bvl10k7lYG0.  In fact, Ian is fully embracing it and is also rumoured to appear in the video, which launches today, alongside a number of celebrity guest cameos from the football and music world.
       
      Although born from a negative incident that would be pretty difficult for any artist to recover from, Jammer has been quick to show that there is no place for any bad vibes and has flipped the situation in to a pretty epic outcome that only he could do.  Naturally pulling in one of the world’s biggest Football legends and also a production courtesy of huge Australian producer: ‘What So Not,’ (who has previously worked with Flume, RL Grime, Dillon Francis and Skrillex), ‘Ian Wright’ is born as an electronic grime masterpiece doused in wonky baseline and topped with Jammer’s lyrical skill and wit. 
       
      Known for his humour and creative genius to his hundreds of thousands of followers, Jammer is one of the foundational lynchpins of the grime scene.  Part of ‘Boy Better Know’ alongside Skepta and also director of seminal brand Lord of the Mics, Jammer gets it in the back of the net as 'Ian Wright' scores with football and music fans, plus anyone that enjoys a bit of top entertainment!

      Mathieu Koss is the French producer that’s collaborated with singer, song writer and rapper Aloe Blacc on a care free party anthem that’s jam-packed with musical positivity. Never Growing Up is a single that rejoices in the ability to connect with your inner silliness. The new video embraces these elements and depicts an imaginative version of what it’s like to be young. The narrative follows an abundance of children who take pleasure in disrupting the mundane pattern of the 9-5, all whilst Aloe Blacc and Mathieu Koss encourage the innocent injection of mayhem. 
       
      Since 2015, Mathieu Koss has delivered an array of persistent pop house tracks that are shamelessly tinged with the guilt-free atmosphere of summer. He saw his career sky rocketed after the release of Angus and Julia Stones’ folk flip, Big Jet Plane, alongside fellow dance enthusiast Alok. He continued to over flow musically with successes such as Best Is Yet to Come, Rebel Yell and Campfire. These releases saw huge DJ support from mammoth influencers like Sam Feldt, Robin Schulz, Lost Frequencies and Martin Garrix.

      Echoing Mathieu’s inspiring message of unity, Aloe Blacc always ensures an inspirational vocal that nods towards his jazz and soul roots. In 2013, Aloe Blacc received deserved recognition as a song writer after co-writing Avicii’s mega hit Wake Me Up, which shot to #1 in over 100 countries. Shortly following, Blacc released chart topping single The Man, followed by his Interscope debut album, Lift Your Spirit. The album went on to receiving a Grammy nomination for best R&B Album. Lift Your Spirit presented Aloe for the first time as a versatile artist that thrived through the medium of pop, soul, funk and R&B. Since then, Aloe Blacc has embraced more dance music realms by featuring on the Tiesto dance mix of Carry You Home and co-writing by Blacc and Stargate.
       
      Making the world their playground, the Never Growing Up video, follows a mischievous day in the life of children. The story sees the little actors planning their rebellion, and interrupting scenes of every day routine. Unwilling adults are depicted by carrying on their heavy work load, perfectly juxtaposed with the tracks invigorating pop-tinged melodies and Aloe’s earnest vocal performance. Eventually the adults join Mathieu Koss and give in to the playful nature of the song. They display an energising release in the form of complete chaos by throwing themselves into the important underlying message of the song, to never grow up.
       
      Mathieu Koss & Aloe Blacc – Never Growing Up is out now!

      Directed by Nicole Alexander, the innovative video for ‘Body Funk’ features a gradually growing assortment of purple dancers coming together for a tightly choreographed dance-off in a futuristic warehouse.

      With remixes under his belt for Calvin Harris, Fatboy Slim, Weiss and Shakedown, Dresden-born producer Purple Disco Machine has become one of the decade’s most notable producers. 2018 saw him achieve an impressive feat on Beatport where four of his productions each secured a top 3 position.
       
      Having enjoyed a stellar 2018, Dresden born disco-house producer Purple Disco Machine is quickly becoming one of the most prolific and sought after producers in the industry. Having recently remixed Calvin Harris, Fatboy Slim, Weiss and Jax Jones, he has also been named as Beatport’s #2 artist of all time.

      Alongside the likes of Paces, Lastlings and CVIRO, Jake Carmody is leading the Gold Coast's musical renaissance and now delivers a crisp new track ‘Alone feat. Savoi’, for his debut release on Tinted Records. For this release, Jake has teamed up with Brisbane singer-songwriter Savoi, who has worked with the likes of Enschway, Yahtzel and most notably LDRU, on his hit track ‘Next To You’. The producers new track uses layers of ethereal and atmospheric sounds to pair with Savoi’s vocals which together build to what Jake does best, a futuristic, stuttering drop.
       
      Jake discusses how the track came together "Alone is the mark I've been aiming at since I started making music. Savoi's vocals inspire me to be as daring and creative with as the production as possible. I'm attracted to textures and melodies more than structure and formulas. I wanted Alone to feel like an art house film, with twists and turns that break champion curiosity over convention."
       
      Jake’s inspiration comes from an eclectic variety of influences, ranging from Lana Del Ray and Lorde all the way to What So Not and Hudson Mowhake, which has inspired the producer to construct something that is truly unique. The Gold Coast based artist has made a name for himself since producing an epic remix of Vance Joy’s cover of ‘Georgia On My Mind’. Dabbling in various other projects, Jake has garnered support from the likes of triple j, Pilerats and EDM Sauce.  
      ‘Alone feat. Savoi’ is out now on Tinted Records.
