HNNY — Oma Doris

HNNY | Oma Doris

Every week of ours is soundtracked at some time or another by a Music For Listening mix courtesy of HNNY, which you should seriously catch onto if you haven’t yet, so it goes without saying that our excitement when he puts out a new release is rather high. Whether it’s a one-off edit, official remix, or carefully curated mix we never cease to be wowed by the Swedish producer’s inventive talent.

Recently the good people of at The House Of Disco dropped their third collaborative compilation, alongside German imprint Jeudi Records. In addition to featuring a diverse lineup of artists such as Monitor66, Toomy Disco, LeSale, Camelphat and more, the record also includes a fresh tune from HNNY. Entitled Oma Doris, we’re treated to buoyant backbeats and delicately spun arrangements that carry us through for a gentle, grooving journey. Equally ideal for cruising around while exploring a new city, or getting things warmed up poolside, and unquestionably brilliant work as usual.

You can stream the track now, and pick up the full release October 6th. Sign up for a reminder here.

Catch a couple more recent spoonfuls of HNNY while you’re at it.

Beat Connection — Another Go Round

Beat Connection | Another Go Round

We last spoke about Seattle’s Beat Connection a few months back at the release of their track Hesitation, the first new material we’d heard from them in two years since dropping their LP The Palace Garden. Now the guys are back again with their fresh single Another Go Round, delivering a glimpse at what we might be able to expect from the follow-up to the aforementioned album, and what a bright prospect it is. They’ve turned out an impeccable gem with this one, containing enough lushness that we could honestly get lost in it on loop all weekend long. With an ample amount of adept layering, and a crisper production direction such as we heard on Hesitation earlier this year, the track brings us a worldly atmosphere hinged on the trio’s affinity for resonant strings and percussive draw. This is all built around an unmatched lyrical craft, coming together for their unique style of modern electro-pop. It’s brilliantly constructed, exotic, blissful, and we really just can’t get enough.

Catch a stream of the tune below, and don’t miss them on tour over the next couple of months — dates here. Also keep those eyes and ears open wide for something special coming from us and BC in the very near future.

CS EXCLUSIVE | Touch Tone

Touch-Tone-x-CS-Final

LA’s Andrew Verner, presently known as Touch Tone, is a producer who’s music has a keen ability to transport you somewhere else. A seemingly effortless combination of unique stylistic elements and a certain warmth to his chords make it inevitable for his tracks to leave you in a better mood than when you arrived. We’ve found his adept catalogue, including impressive originals Home Away From Home and Make Believe, plus ace remixes of artists like Goldroom, Xylos, Dive In, and Crystal Fighters, welcomely soundtracking our past couple of years, and quickly becoming staples in our go-to bag of tunes. There’s something to be said for that consistent presence, and the continued turning out of upbeat, grooving, and outright enjoyable jams.

We’ve become fans, followers, and friends of TT over time, and couldn’t be more excited today to be able to give you guys a deeper look into who he is and what he’s got going on. Don’t miss the exceptional exclusive mix he’s put together for us — alongside our interview in which we talk with him about the influence of Mortal Kombat’s soundtrack, the dance community’s increasing adoption of Disco and House, and of course R. Kelly’s unquestionable versatility. Soak it in and enjoy!

Check it out after the jump!

THE JAM JAR | 079

THE-JAM-JAR-79

Summer always lives on with the Jam Jar around, and it’s about time for another dip in those warms waters underneath the palm trees. Grab your suit, or not if that’s your thing, and dive in!

Catch the jams past the break.

The Flexican & Sef — Mother’s Day

The Flexican & Sef | Mother's Day

There’s a new obsession amidst us over here at Caveman Sound and it comes in the form of producer’s The Flexican & Sef’s funky fresh tune Mother’s Day, which we’ve got ace curator The Magician to thank for introducing us to. Dishing out equal parts rapturous future house beats and beyond catchy lyrical content, the Amsterdam-based pair has given us a wholly infectious jam that’s sure to be a quick hit. Though new names in our book, we can only hope to hear more like this from the two going forward. The track is out now on iTunes via Because Music, and be sure to catch the fitting official video while you’re at it.

The Magician — Magic Tape 45

The Magician | Magic Tape 45

The Magician seems to be ruling our airwaves as of late, but let’s be honest, we’re definitely not mad about it. After a couple of months since the previous release, the Belgian producer appeared once again today with a brand new installment of his seminal mix series ‘Magic Tape’ and it’s 45th edition, which we can surely say is one of the best mixes we’ve heard recently. We were delighted to find some of our top tunes and artists of the moment making an appearance, with Disciples, Klaves, Shift K3y, Blonde and Syv all keeping things moving in a big way. Moral of the story here is that The Magician knows what’s up, always. Let this one take you for a ride.

The Magician — Sunlight feat. Years & Years (Blonde Remix)

Sunlight | Blonde Remix

At this point, you’ll surely have heard The Magician’s feel-good hit of the summer Sunlight, featuring Olly of Years & Years. Well, now the tune is receiving a handful of remix treatments, the first of which was smoothly delivered courtesy of Darius just last week. Today we’re bringing you Bristol duo Blonde’s take on the track, and though not exactly laid-back Sunday vibes, the sun is shining bright up here in SF and we’re about to head out for a day of jams in the park, so we figured why not turn up the energy a bit. Yielding the familiar melodic builds and crisp bassline we’ve come to know and love from them, the guys have turned out a sublime addition to our indian summer soundtrack that we couldn’t have imagined any better. Grab your shades, kick off your shoes, and get down.

Have a listen to the aforementioned Darius remix as well if you haven’t yet, it just so happens to be the perfect fit for some Sunday afternoon relaxation.

Flight Facilities — Two Bodies ft. Emma Louise (Original + Video)

Flight Facilities | Two Bodies ft. Emma Louise

If, due to some unfortunate chain of events, you’ve missed Flight Facilities absolutely brilliant new single, Two Bodies ft. Emma Louise off their forthcoming debut album, this week, here it is in all of it’s exquisiteness. We’ve spent the better part of our recent days in a suspended state of elation upon it’s release, being that it’s really just inarguably stunning work on all levels. Both the track and it’s video come as perfect compliments. And there’s not much more to say, though we did say a lot more a couple of week ago for the album and tour announcement, if you care to read it.

So now we’re just going to leave these here for you, to embrace and reflect upon and get the good feels flowing this weekend. Enjoy, and look out for more details as the albums October 27th release date approaches.

Jupiter Project & Jetski Safari — With You feat. Helen Corry (Chores Remix)

With You | Chores Remix

We first laid ears on New Zealand’s Chores close to a year back through their ace takes on the likes of BroodsFlight Facilitiesand Danny T, and since then haven’t hesitated to advocate their talent. Earlier this week they shot over their new remix for Jupiter Project & Jetski Safari’s With You, delivering a heap of good feels once again, and having no trouble adding some skip to our step today. Letting bright house beats skate smoothly beneath Helen Corry’s poppy vocals here, they’ve turned out a fresh summertime jam we’ll gladly get familiar with. The remix will be released on Warner Music soon, but until then, grab some sun, hit play, and bounce into the weekend.
