At long last, we’ve finally arrived at this much needed holiday break, and considering this is a time to show appreciation, what better way than to gather up our favorite jams of the moment and gift them to you for the coming festivities. We’ve made sure to provide tunes with plenty of good feels and ample energy this week, in hopes that they’ll help push through that inevitable turkey hangover coming our way.

New ones come in the form of Equator Club’s inventive original GoodLuv off their recent ‘Infinity EP’, a new stunner courtesy of Tough Love called What You Need Is Me, and Kayper coming through with What You say, a groovy number out now via Eton Messy Records. Of course, there’s much more where those came from too, so get into them below and enjoy your time off!

Kiesza — Give It To The Moment (Cassian Remix)


Just in case you haven’t noticed, Cassian has been on an absolute roll lately. Actually though, when is that not the case? Past a set of ace remixes, an untouchable single in Feel It, and killing it on tour alongside RUFUS last month, the Aussie producer is back again with his take on Kiesza’s Give It To The Moment featuring Djemba Djemba.

The remix comes as part of an official package in conjunction with Smirnoff Sound Collective, including reworks from artists hailing from five different continents, as an effort to spread the songs message across the globe. Cassian, clearly, was tasked with representing Australia, more specifically his hometown of Sydney, and has certainly played his part well. It’s no secret he’s been a long time favorite of ours, but all bias aside, he’s smashed it out of the park with this one. That classic Cassian touch comes through in the form of a pristine house cut, anchored by lush synths and lively percussion sure to satisfy even the pickiest palates. Dig in below and enjoy.

You should also have a listen to the aforementioned Feel It if you haven’t yet, because it’s too good.

BAIO — Brainwash Yyrr Face (Sondrio Remix)


This new Sondrio remix of BAIO’s Brainwash Yyrr Face came across our radar earlier this week, and we’ve got to say, it’s tops. Of course, this really comes as little surprise considering the two artists involved. We’ve been championing the Sydney–based producer for some time now, and he’s done an excellent job flipping the already brilliant original into something completely his own here. He takes us on a journey with this one, wasting no time kicking things off with a jackin’ beat and sonorous synth lines, then letting BAIO’s distinct vocal intermingle with a buoyant bassline, only to drop us into some serious acid vibes in the latter half. It’s got an eclectic, contemporary feel with a throwback nod, something Sondrio’s got a penchant for, and is sure to be suitable for any and every dancefloor.

The remix comes as part of the official ‘expansion pack’ for BAIO’s new album The Names, out now via Glassnote. Stream the whole set on Spotify here, and pick up the album itself here if you’re keen.

CS Premiere | Tontario x Leo Islo — Coexist


We’ve got a really special one for you today, coming as a collaboration from two members of the LAMP family. Leo Islo, who we recently championed for his single Higher Living, and the newest addition to the roster, Finnish producer Tontario, have come together to do what they each do best, and the result is nothing short of spectacular.

Coexist is an emotion–laden track that sees the two artists distinctive styles form a powerful combination. Tontario’s immense aptitude for weaving choice vocal work with thoughtful production has been well demonstrated through previous collaborations with rapper K.B. Starr and Swedish singer Lucas Nord, and that talent shines again here. In the first few moments, Islo’s ethereal vocals and a crackling atmosphere envelope us, setting the tone for an immersive journey. Delicate piano chords and resonant synths dissolve seamlessly into layered claps and percussion, creating a lush soundscape you’ll quickly find yourself lost within. It’s a fitting release, introspective and optimistic, at a time when we as individuals, and together as one, could use this sort of positive vision.

Stream Coexist in full below, and pick up a free download here.




Sometimes we just have one of those weeks. You know, the days pass by at a snails pace, the work seems never-ending, and you find yourself frequently daydreaming of sipping spicy margaritas on the sandy beaches of Tulum. Luckily, we’ve got just the fix.

Today’s Jam Jar is stacked with amazing tunes, kicking off with Something About U, a new one from the one and only Astronomyy who continues to deliver that distinct ‘jungle-surf’ style that we can’t get enough of. After that comes almost too much goodness to put into words, with Rainer + Grimm’s debut original Talk To Me sure to put some bounce in your step, Pat Lok’s groovy take on MakeLove, a catchy rework of Yates from our bud Plastic Plates and even more ya’ll. Get down and enjoy!

Strange Talk — Painted In Gold (Robotaki Remix)


We’ve got one more jam to bring you before the weekend really takes off, and trust us when we say it’s an essential. Robotaki has been consistently impressing with his string of top notch releases, easily setting himself apart from the masses, but this time is he’s gone above and beyond. Now the Toronto producer has followed up successful remixes for Autograf and filous with yet another stunner, this time taking on Strange Talk’s hit single Painted In Gold. The rework does well to showcase his full range as a producer, blending elements of indie pop, disco house and contemporary electronic together seamlessly, in turn creating something difficult to define yet unequivocally engaging for any listener. He’s used this versatility to weave an uplifting, optimistic atmosphere that compliments the vocals and lyrical content to perfection, making the track wholly his own while keeping the strengths of the original intact.

Truly ace work from a talent we couldn’t be more glad to see fully back in action once again. Tune into the remix below and have a great weekend!



Weekend time, let’s get to it! Dust off your Prada windbreaker, hijack a sailing vessel and set your Earthlink vacation responder to “brb” cause we’re about to get breezy with this one. Bring the hounds too because your Snapchats mean nothing without them. From there, mull over your “bad girl on vacay” outfit options. Satphone in a gourmet meal because health is a priority. Subscribe to The Economist because there are bigger issues at hand. Join a Sock’em Boppers fight club. Bring the Xbox into the sauna, fuck what mom says. Tune in and vibe out!

Things are ramping up nicely here at Gary HQ. Q4 business acumen is at an all time high, and I’ll be playing some radical shows in the next couple weeks! Shout out to Caveman Sound for holding it down 24/7, they are the absolute truth. Wild that we’re now on Volume 9! I’ll keep delivering vibrations until we hit 100, fear not. Until next time!

CS Premiere | Tian Karl — Times (Hysteria)


Following a strong release on Nervous Records this past week, London–based German producer Tian Karl is back at it with another mighty EP entitled Times (Hysteria). Today we’re bringing you the first listen to the sets title track, sure to kick your weekend off on the proper note.

Working in a smooth tempo for a bit of a nu–disco feel, Times (Hysteria) comes as a slight divergence from Tian’s usual house productions, though every bit as finessed. Poignant vocal clips lend a soulful edge to the funk–infused grooves, with crisp percussion and a pulsing bassline carrying us through with ease. Both the single and EP in full are a testament to his adept talent and versatility, further proven by the support already pouring in from the likes of Claude Vonstroke, Hannah Wants and more, so we’d recommend you not miss it.

The release is out today, Friday the 13th November, via D-Vine Sounds. Pick it up exclusively on Traxsource here.

Satchmode — Further Away


Sure, we’re all about our nu-disco, deep and tech house, garage, even a little future beats here and there – but there’s really nothing like escaping into the dreamy atmosphere of some proper synth pop. Thanks to LA–based duo Satchmode, that’s exactly what we’re indulging in today. The guys released their new single Further Away earlier this week, an 80s-inspired slice of indie pop that’s soaked in enough magical synths, nostalgic grooves and elevating vocal hooks to send us sailing through daydreams of fragmented memories from our youth. And, right now, that’s just where we want to be.

Bob Moses — Tearing Me Up (Slaptop Remix)


Just the other day we were talking with someone about how much we’ve been digging the new Bob Moses stuff, and then the next thing we know SF’s own Slaptop is dropping a remix of their latest single Tearing Me Up. If you’ve caught our recent write-ups of the rising producer’s work, you’ll know we’re big fans of all that he does, and this time is no different. Slaptop has created something really great here, contrasting the Canadian duo’s exquisite vocal work with deep, driving grooves and 4×4 beats, effectively taking us down the rabbit hole and on a trip through a vivid, immersive landscape. It’s the darkest work we’ve heard from him yet without a doubt, but still a prime showcase of that signature dynamism we’ve come to know him for. In summation, Slaptop is on a roll, and it doesn’t look like he’s slowing down anytime soon.

Speaking of, catch Slaptop’s most recent original, Can’t Figure It Out, if you haven’t yet.
