Inspired by the mythical power of the full moon and the famous parties of Southeast Asia, MATTE’s Full Moon develops this narrative with New York’s distinct culture and edge – a transcendental beach party in the center of New York Harbor with sounds, art and food from a carefully curated lineup of musicians, DJs, artists, and chefs.

Full Moon 2013 is New York’s not-to-be-missed summer music event, blurring the line between festival and dance party. In 2012, Full Moon was attended by over 2,500 of New York’s finest and written up by titles such as Bullett Magazine, NY Mag and VICE.

This year, The Beach at Governors Island serves as an urban paradise for Full Moon – a sunset over the Statue of Liberty, a moonrise over Lower Manhattan.

Full Moon’s 2013 lineup will feature Miami Horror, Tanlines, Wild Belle, Cyril Hahn, Float Fall, The Knocks, Yuksek, & more.

Alright so this sounds Fu$%ing exciting right!? I know EMPT is gonna be there so everyone reading this better get your sexy Summer asses there as well.  Here is where you can purchase tickets and check out the facebook link for more info and inspiration!

Aeroplane ft. Jamie Principle – In Her Eyes (Original Mix)

“And in her eyes,

I saw why you fell for me.

And i used to see it in your eyes
It ain’t what it used to be.

And in her eyes,
I saw why you fell for me.
And then i used to see it in your eyes
Remember why you fell for me.

Lost are the memories.”

I’m all about the eyes, and the power of what you can say through them that you don’t with your lips. They can’t lie, and this song is all about reading between the lines, asking for one last chance, begging not to be left and leveraging that lust and desire that can’t be denied in that look into the other person’s eyes. This is such a beautiful song, perfectly executed down to the harmonies by those sexy female backup vocals.

I learned about this song’s release after reading Vito’s banter on Twitter on how Facebook is so unfair that if you don’t pay for a post no one will see it. Dear Vito: when you produce stuff as good as this, you don’t need Facebook for it to explode. It’s a matter of time. Quality music is like a cork, it always finds its way afloat.

The boogie sexy down-pitched vocals come in after the 2:20 mark and that’s when I was swept off my feet. It’s another level of coolness, crooning and sweet begging. And then it’s all about that bassline’s starring role in this movie. This song is so good, it hurts. I purchased the Radio Edit and I’m now regretting not looking for an extended remix or something that’s longer ‘cause I just can’t get enough of it.

“Look at me,
I don’t want you to leave me.
Don’t go – don’t go!
Don’t go – don’t go!

I know you want me.
I made mistakes.
But look at my eyes,
You’ll know I want you.
I know.
I see the tears covering your eyes,
From the things that I do.
Look at me,
I don’t want you to leave me.”

Aeroplane – We Can’t Fly (Oliver Remix)

 

If I could assemble an Avengers-styled troupe of my favorite producers on this planet, Aeroplane and Oliver would be shoe-ins (along with Monsieurs Falke, Braxe, Terje, Breakbot, Flight Facilities, those robot suit guys, and…etc). That combination of ill music-making dudes would also make for a pretty nice festival lineup/mixtape/entourage.

Anyway, I’m sure you’ve also been waiting for this remix to drop for the past 2 years. It’s been dropped in live sets, it’s been heard in shitty quality on Youtube, and it’s finally seeing daylight with its “official” release. It’s Aeroplane (pre-split up) at their finest. It’s Oliver (U-Tern and Oligee) at their finest. It’s a Ninja-Turtle like meeting of four musical minds that’s a party from the front to the back. It’s fly magic.

Processory – Nightfall (Aeroplane Remix)

My bad for the lack of post lately, I’ve been working on the music for a couple of restaurants one of which is nothing but top 40 and needless to say I’m not a 13 year old girl so the style is far from my forte. On top of that Casey Mendoza got asked to play in the Dominican Republic last Friday and I had to bail because my passport was expired – not fresh. Thankfully Kev went down and did his thing so stay tuned for our next trip down, I highly recommend some of you fools fly down and party with us, it will be epic.

Anyways it’s 7 AM on Monday, there’s a million more things to do and I couldn’t be more ready to go. My friend put me on to a Navy Seals hell week training video in which the students go through insane training for almost a week with four hours of sleep. Think about that for a second, these guys are carrying boats, going on runs, crawling through mud flaps for five days straight with 4 hours of sleep – champs. Here we are waking up after 7 hours from the previous night complaining about how tired we are without coffee – not champs.

That made me realize just how many excuses we make for ourselves. We’re all guilty of it, shit I started this post with an excuse and didn’t even realize it. We mask our laziness with these elaborate and creative excuses, but an excuse is not a reason and there’s no good reason for an excuse. To accomplish anything in life, be it personal, career or romance you have to work hard. Of course you have to be efficient and work smart but there are no shortcuts. For some reason seeing those guys push it to the limit like that has stuck with me and made me question all the unnecessary complaining and laziness around me. Our bodies are fascinating, we have so much energy in there yet we suppress it and downgrade ourselves with these inferior thoughts.

There’s something that feels right about Space Age Music at the crack of dawn. Something about it that gets the thoughts flowing and the body going. Alright, there’s much to do but here’s to starting off the week in top form and getting rid of thoughts inferior to our wonderful design, enjoy.

Aeroplane – Witout Lies (Breakbot & Black Van Remix)

I like new thoughts and Aeroplanes new single is certainly not your conventional point of view on lies. I’m all about putting on a show and adding theatrics to anything I do so I get what they mean. However, some people aren’t so open to loose interpretations of words, especially not of words that have negative connotations so I expect this song to have it’s fair share of haters…

There wouldn’t be any artists, no jugglers or tightrope walkers.
Without Lies, in my eyes life would be straight up sad.
A bit of sun to melt the ice flow, a good disguise to start the show
Without Lies, in my eyes life would be straight up grey
When I eat cake, I prefer the cherry
 
Changing the scenes different faces,
Another costume changing places
Without Lies, in my eyes life would be pretty boring
We wouldn’t be great performers, we’d watch the time pass us over
Without lies, in my eyes life would be pretty bad
 
In the champagne I prefer the bubbles
A bit of sun to melt the ice flow, A good disguise to start the show
Without lies, in my eyes life would be straight up grey
When I eat cake, I prefer the cherry, I prefer the cherry, I prefer the cherry…
 

Once again, great lyrics which haven’t found their way to the internet so we wrote them out ourselves. I can’t figure out what Sky Ferreira says in the first line so if anyone knows leave it in the comments and I’ll add it on, enjoy.

Au Revoir Simone – Another Likely Story (Aeroplane Remix)

I was originally going to make this post about Williamsburg trio Au Revoir Simone but the more I listened to this remix I realized I had to give the credit where it’s due, Aeroplane. Vito De Luca and Stephen Fasano are the Belgian DJ/Producer team that makes up Aeroplane and they have been topping the underground nu disco charts for quite some time. I posted their latest non-remix work We Can Fly recently and if you haven’t heard that track scroll down a few post because it’s an epic adventure that is certainly worth your time.

For today, I want to post their remix of Au Revoir Simone’s Another Likely Story and Chromeo’s latest late night knockout Don’t Turn The Lights On. The Chromeo remix doesn’t kick in till about 52 seconds so give it sometime, these guys like to build things up. In fact, it’s that knack for ambitious arrangements that gives this production team a serious edge. This is a very classic, modern and exciting production style and I would certainly keep your ears open from anything these guys release, enjoy.

Aeroplane – We Can’t Fly

We can fly, come on let’s try… We’re boys and girls, who rule the world…”

I can’t actually confirm it but this song might have been produced on a beach somewhere in Ibiza at 4 am.  We Can’t Fly was ironically produced by a band called Aeroplane, which is two dudes hailing from Belgium who gained notoriety in the underground through some pretty epic remix’s of Grace Jones, Friendly Fires, Das Pop, Lindström, MGMT and more. However, most people will know them through the now classic remix of Breakbots Baby I’m Yours we posted a while back. With such an impressive track record it’s hard to believe they haven’t released an official album to date but fret not they’ll be releasing their first LP in September and if this first single is any indication of the quality you can expect some fire. I think these guys may be suffering from The Twelves disease which means everything they touch pretty much turns to gold. I mean We Can’t Fly is one of the coolest productions I’ve heard in a while. It’s mixing at least five different genres and captures a feeling I can’t get enough of. These guys wen’t all out in the arrangement so make sure to let the track play out, it makes it that much more interesting.

We can fly, or kiss the sky. So long, bye bye…

There aren’t many lyrics in the song but the repetitive reminder that we can do anything works for me. Limitlessness, that’s my mantra and this epic production compliments it just fine, enjoy.
