Dim Sum :: High Love (Video) + To The Top

One of our favorite French duos Dim Sum sent us their new video for their excellent track "High Love" and the video matches the sweetness of the source material. A love story for the summer, a story of lost opportunities. Don't let it slip you by fellas. Check that out below...

In addition to the video they are giving away new track "To the Top" (for a soundcloud follow). It is a banging, ready for prime time instrumental disco jam that you might hear at a cool club/bar near you. I know it has already been added to my Rekordbox ;)

Hope you guys have a fun/safe Memorial Day weekend and listen to tons of great music!!

Moderat :: III

Digging the new album from the Modeselektor/Apparat collaboration Moderat entitled III. As the name implies it is their third release and it is a solid album, 9 tracks with zero filler. It's a great record that melds the world of electronic music and house music pretty seamlessly, and their vocals give the record a nice human touch. This one will be in heavy rotation at OTR over the next few months and will probably be on many top album lists once 2016 says goodbye. Plus how amazing is that album artwork?!

Check out their new video for one of our faves "Running".

Metronomy :: Old Skool

New Metronomy = Happy Us!! Metronomy just dropped a bouncy/dancey new single called "Old Skool" from their forthcoming album Summer 08' which is being released July 1st. Really loving the track and their super 70's inspired/colorful video for it. Wes Anderson would be proud.

Check that out below then be on the lookout for that album. You know it's gonna be amazing!

Great Ghost :: Take Me 2 Your Healer

Our buddy Sean Kravit who used to reside in Miami, but now calls Brooklyn home sent us his new release as Great Ghost. It's a four track EP he's titled Take Me To Your Healer, and we are digging it! It's a great piece of flowing experimental electronic music. He has a sweet animated video for title track "Take Me To Your Healer" that you can check out below which is really colorful and fun. 

Sample/purchase the rest of that release via his bandcamp page. Well worth your time.

Astari Nite :: Engagement Ceremony (Premiere)

Miami dark wave band Astari Nite sent us their new single "Engagement Ceremony" to premiere for you guys from their upcoming second album Until the End of the Moon which is being released on (lucky) Friday the 13th in May. It's a cool dark atmospheric track with a real nice break around the 3:24 mark.

Holy Ghost! :: New EP Crime Cutz + Neon Indian/Eli Escobar Remixes

It had been awhile since I heard some new music from NYC nu-disco duo Holy Ghost!, 2013 to be exact. Well today I was happy to get an email saying they will be releasing a new EP Crime Cutz later this week on the 29th of April via their long term label DFA. That definitely brought a smile to my face, especially the remix they sent our way of the title track "Crime Cutz" by Neon Indian. It is 7 1/2 mins of nu-disco heaven that can be played on a continual loop.

Check out that deliciousness below, plus another excellent remix I saw for the same track on their soundcloud by Eli Escobar. Two jams for this lovely weekend. Enjoy!

Bella Luz :: Summer Breeze ft Maryell Epps

Miami's own Bella Luz is getting ready to release a new EP soon. They sent over the first track from it "Summer Breeze" ft Maryell Epps and it is excellent! A solid piece of dark synthpop deliciousness. Gil's vocals are on point and the beats by Jean Espiritusanto and pulsating synths are bumping, like totally jumping out of your speakers. Can't wait to play this out at one of the darker parties I DJ at. It will fit in perfectly.

Check out "Summer Breeze" below and be on the lookout for the video coming soon, plus the rest of that EP which I'm sure will not disappoint. If you live in South Florida I highly recommend catching one (or more) of their live shows. Totally worth it! Next one's on the 28th at Churchill's.
