CS EXCLUSIVE | Tesla Boy

Tesla-Boy-x-CS-Final

A mainstay in their home country of Russia, Moscow’s Tesla Boy have been quickly gaining ground over the past year here in America, and for good reason. With a sound deeply seeped in the nostalgia inducing 80s, making it easy to draw comparisons to the likes of Cut Copy, Chromeo, or Holy Ghost, and a fashion-forward style that brings the whole package full circle — the four-person band led by Anton Sevidov has a appeal nearly impossible to ignore, and will undoubtedly be taking over your airwaves soon.

We had the opportunity to catch up with the guys for a quick chat, surrounding their appearance at Escape Music Festival in NYC a couple of weeks back, and dove a little deeper into the unsurprisingly awesome world that is Tesla Boy. Hear details about their recently released ‘The Universe Made of Darkness (Night Version)’ remix album, singing in Russian vs. English, and of course Anton’s favorite leather jacket. They’ve also put together an exclusive mix for us which, we’ll just say, will have you out of your seat and dancing in no time. Jump in below.

MYNGA feat. Cosmo Klein — Back Home (Thomas Jack Remix)

Back Home | Thomas Jack Remix

Though things have been a bit quiet on Thomas Jack’s end over the past few months, it seems he’s back in action once again, coming at us with his take on Ben Sollee last month and now this excellent remix for MYNGA feat. Cosmo Klein’s Back Home. It’s no question that the Aussie producer has a talent for putting together instantly loved tracks, with a sound that’s equally as forward-thinking as it is universal. And this latest effort is a shining beacon, combining a backbeat of crisp percussion and a steady bassline, with melodic strings and a sax solo that’s as irresistible as they get. Past a sold out tour alongside his mate Kygo, we think it’s safe to say TJ is about to bring the tropical vibes bigger and better than ever. Snag yourself a copy of his Back Home remix here, and keep your ears perked.

Still Parade — Actors (Dinnerdate Remix)

Actors | Dinnerdate Remix

This morning we’re bringing you a new one from one of our favorites, Simon Hoppe, aka Dinnerdate. Delivering his signature laid back house vibes blended effortlessly with acoustic sensibilities and haunting indie vocals, the German producer has got us quickly wrapped up in his latest remix for Still Parade’s Actors. We’re hearing classic Dinnerdate on display here, with an undeniable gem akin to previous ace productions such as his remixes of Cocoon, BOY and more, reminding us of those bewitching arrangements that originally drew us to his sound. It’s a brilliant balance between reflective and inspiring, sure to set your day off on the right note. Pick up a free download here and sink in.

Ten Walls — Walking With Elephants (Colour Vision Re-Imagination)

Colour Vision

Just before diving into the weekend last week, our favorite tropical aficionado Colour Vision came through in a big way, dropping an inspired take on one of the years biggest tracks, Ten Walls’ Walking With Elephants. Washing it in waves of his signature warm weather sound, he’s completely reworked the tune into an exploration of steel drums and good feels, splashing us with an invigorating energy and bringing the island inspired rhythms in full. With it’s brightly boisterous vibe, this one’s got us moving and grooving into the work week with ease. Scoop up a copy for yourself via Colour Vision’s Facebook page now and enjoy.

Flight Facilities — Two Bodies feat. Emma Louise (HNNY REMIX)

Two Bodies | HNNY Remix

Past the release of their amazing single Two Bodies ft. Emma Louise last month, the Flight Facilities guys are back with a brand new remix courtesy of one of our favorite artists HNNY, and we’re not too sure how to express our love for this one in words. Well known for his delicately constructed productions, the Swedish producer has put together a brilliant rework of the original here, merely accentuated it’s luminance rather than a complete reinvention. He takes us on a journey through peaks and valleys, building in an airy, lightly tribal atmosphere which blends together with Emma Louise’s exquisite vocals to perfection. All we can really say is have a listen below and experience for yourself.

Indian Summer — Shiner ft. Ginger & The Ghost (option4 Remix)

Shiner | option4 Remix

We began last week with a new heater courtesy of the homie option4, so we thought it only logical to do the same thing this time around. The Denver-based producer’s made our 2-step into Monday a simple spectacle, conveniently dropping his gem of remix for Indian Summer and Ginger & The Ghost’s Shiner just when we needed it most. Reeling in the lanky vibes of the original, Brennen tightens up the beat through a combination of plucky bass kicks and crisp percussion, letting the track hit that sweet spot of underground appeal and being universally palatable all at once — a talent he’s undoubtedly got a knack for. Catch the full stream of this prime cut below and get down!

The 2 Bears — Not This Time (andhim Remix)

Not This Time | andhim Remix

Leave to Germany’s andhim to start our weekend off in style. The duo just delivered a fresh remix to us this morning of Not This Time, the latest single from Joe Goddard & Raf Rundell’s The 2 Bears, and it couldn’t be better suited to get us 2-stepping through this Friday afternoon and on into the freedom ahead. Bringing the infectious energy of the original out onto the dancefloor, the guys have washed the track in their signature ‘super-house’ style, giving it a slight but adept shift that blends together seamlessly with a smooth gloss, and still lets Joe Goddard’s phenomenal vocals shine. Have a listen below and get into the groove.

Don’t miss a preview of the original as well. It comes as part of The 2 Bears forthcoming second album The Night Is Young, which will land October 13th via Southern Fried Records.

THE-JAM-JAR-82

We’ve got bright tropical vibes intermingling with deep jams, all kicking off with a brilliant new take on Lorde’s Team courtesy of the ever-inventive Autograf. Following that up come Gold Fields with their fresh tropical house single Hold Me, Tobtok’s big spin on The Magician’s seminal Sunlight, Aussies Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP’s incredible Sugarman, plus many more tunes. Jump on board below.
