Factory Floor :: 25 25


Found out about this really cool London duo Factory Floor today on the NPR podcast. Their song "Ya" from their upcoming album 25 25 reminds me of early 90's techno/acid music. Great minimal electronic track with pumping beats suitable for a sweaty dance floor near you. 

Their album 25 25 comes out next week (8/19) on DFA Records. You can pre-order it on iTunes.

Scope out their video for "Ya" below...

Solidisco :: Summer Heat


One of our favorites Solidisco sent us their new single called "Summer Heat" and it is a scorcher! Great summer jam that I've been playing out in my DJ sets. Thought I'd share it with you fine folks. I hear an homage to the classic freestyle track "Summertime, Summertime" by Nocera with the synth line at the end of the track. Good stuff!



BONUS!! In addition to their awesome new track they also have a great new remix called "Motion" which features some classic Madonna vocals and is a prime time dance jam! Check that out below. If you like what you hear they are giving away the track as a free download in exchange for some social media love. 

Amtrac :: Running After


Amtrac is back! He sent us his new single "Running After" which is part of a 2 track EP being released August 2nd on Kidnap Kid’s new label Birds That Fly. As always it is another exquisite release from Amtrac. A deep/dark house jam that will fit in perfectly in those late night DJ sets and get those feet moving.

Check out the goodness below.  If you like what you hear, you can buy the track on Juno

Paradis :: Toi Et Moi (Lifelike Remix)



It had been a minute since I heard something new from one of our old favorite's Lifelike. That is until I ran into this spectacular new remix he did for Paradis' "Toi Et Moi". Jesus Christ it is good! Full on 80's synthwave dancefloor deliciousness. I wanna be at a club playing this peak time on a Saturday night. Is that too much to ask?

Check out the goodness...


BONUS MATERIAL :: In addition to the Lifelike remix I spotted the official video for the original track "Toi Et Moi" by Paradis and it is phenomenal as well! More subdued/mid-tempo than the remix, but really lovely as well. Gonna have to look into these fellows. Check that out below.

Ladyhawke :: Wild Things


It had been awhile since I heard new music from New Zealand's Ladyhawke, an old time favorite of mine that I used to play out quite a bit in my DJ sets. Today I saw her new video for new single "Wild Things" and it reminded me how much I missed her brand of 80's inspired synthpop. Seems her new album Wild Things just came out last month and as I type this I am listening to it. So far, so good! Real polished record.

Check out her colorful roller rink video for "Wild Things" below, plus a couple additional tracks from her new album "A Love Song" and "Sweet Fascination". If you dig these and wanna grab the album, it's available on iTunes.



Heartracer :: Dream Girl


Got sent this really great track "Dream Girl" by Richmond, Virginia brother duo Heartracer. I am told they are obsessed with 80's culture/music, kinda like we are at OTR and it shows on this splendid subdued synthpop single. I will be pressing play on this one many, many times. You have been pre-warned, you may become addicted. Press play at your own peril.

If you like what you hear you can purchase the track on iTunes

Timecop1983 :: Lovers ft Seawaves


One of my favorites Timecop1983 released a new single "Lovers" ft Seawaves. It is from their upcoming EP of the same name being released July the 22nd which you can pre-order on their bandcamp.

This is some seriously beautiful stuff! A gorgeously contructed retrowave track featuring exquisite vocal work by Seawaves. Never heard of Seawaves before, but I sure hope to be hearing alot more from them in the very near future. This first taste of the new EP is too good, the rest of that EP can't possibly live up to the bar set by this amazing track, can it?! We shall see, but for now I will fully enjoy this one. Thank you Timecop1983 for releasing beautiful music like this into our world.

Love OTR





BONUS TIME :: While I was finding Seawaves links I ran into this great cover they did of U2's classic "With or Without You". Thought I'd post that up here as well. Enjoy!
