the good people from record makers just released the new single by english crooner findlay brown. 'promised land' is actually a smooth pop ballad cover of the classic house track by joe smooth, so house and disco-flavoured remixes were obviously mandatory. the package includes reworks from acid washed, pilooski, hypnolove, mellow and discodust favorites villa. loaded with piano chords and strings, enjoy their remix right here as another discodust premiere!
head over to findlay brown's bandcamp page to check out the full release that just came out today!

once again i'll demonstrate my cluelessness by admitting that i am not too familiar with the work of pale sketcher (justin k. broadrick of post-rock band jesu, former member of napalm death) and donnacha costello (in the game since 1997 with releases on force inc. and poker flat) but i am rather good at spotting a beautiful electronica masterpiece when i hear one, so how is that?
this is the kind of music that sets out to take over my stereo as soon as the dark shades of autumn bury all traces of summer out there. make sure your beloved ones keep you warm while listening to the remix of 'can i go now (gone version)'.
for further details, refer to the ghostly international website.

following up on the still lasting success of 'reckless with your love' (that we posted over a year ago) and their collaboration with friendly fires plus countless remixes for the likes of munk, runaway, cfcf, voltage and sunday girl, toronto's currently hottest collective azari & iii are back with their new single 'indigo'.
originally supposed to be released on the resurrected trax records which never came through, it's out on turbo now instead. 'indigo' stays true to their classic house vibe but succeeds to sound fresh nevertheless, incorporating the same kind of slightly detuned chords we hear in a lot of borderline dubstep tracks from the united kingdom these days.

in her rather short career, clare maguire has already been in touch with jay-z (who attested her 'star quality'), rick rubin, jarvis cocker, primary 1 and bloodshy & avant, among many others. and i can definitely understand their fascination, as her voice and the atmosphere in her songs are something truly special, sometimes reminding me of no one else but stevie nicks.
her official debut single "ain't nobody" comes with a remarkable video and a remix by memory tapes has already received lots of blog love. most wanted remix in the package seems to be the one by london-based dubstep producer breakage though, already dubbed 'the biggest remix of the year' by zane lowe from bbc radio 1. not sure if i can second that yet but it's a great remix for sure, judge for yourself and enjoy another discodust premiere in 320 kbps!
watch out for the official single release on october 18th and head over to our friends from neon gold records for a couple more treats by the wonderful clare maguire.

disclosure are two 16 and 19 year old brothers residing in south london who just released their debut single on moshi moshi. operating somewhere in-between dubstep and garage, the diva vocal fragments and fading synth chords of 'linstigator' remind me of joy orbison and that must be a good thing.
