Little Boots – Headphones (Dimitri From Paris Dub)

Bring out the spandex, the thick white socks and hightops, the neon apparel and don’t forget to put on that plastic Swatch watch (with the clip-on face protector of course). We’re on a ride to 80‘s thanks to the wonderful work Dimitri From Paris did on Little Boot’s original. The french maestro brings some of our favourite sounds of that decade with the 808’s, the claps, cowbells and synth work. Even the way he chops the vocals sounds natural.

Use this tune as part of your gym soundtrack or even as warm-up to that weekend that’s just a day or so away. In the 30 days since I added this song to my collection iTunes says I’ve heard it 24 times — apparently not enough. But don’t take my word as to how much you’ll want to move to this track; put on your headphones, hit play and let me know in the comments.

Oh baby!

I wear my Headphones at the disco 
And nobody ever has to know 
I wear my Headphones at the disco 
And when the music stops 
Then you’ll hear me singing”

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Aout

New month – new Le Miel du Mois mixtape on EMPT. I would write more but it’s Saturday and I need to back out in the sun asap, enjoy.

Le Miel du Mois: Aout:  Last month, one of the fans of the monthly mix, “kiki,” commented on how Le Miel du Mois: Juillet makes her feel: “like dancing around the edge of a pool late night with a drink and a cigarette and oversized t-shirts and sometimes getting pushed in and you never remember the photos that get taken but you laugh the whole time,” Le Miel du Mois: Aout, aims to invoke the same exact feeling, but with a few minor alterations: sans pants, and add in flashing, flashing, lights lights lightssss.”

The Virgins – Rich Girls (Twelves Remix)

So I went down to the New Rome clothing 2009 release party at Santos and pretty much the only good song the first DJ played was the Twelves Remix of Rich Girls. Great party, very cool shirts but the DJ left me wanting more. Anyways, we posted the original version of this song a while back so I figured it was a good time to give some updates. Here’s Twelves Remix of the song, by far the best. I’ve seen a bunch of remixes but no covers, I still prefer the original to the Little Boots version but kudos to Vicky for bringing us the female perspective, enjoy.

Fred Falke – French House Remix King

Will French disco house ever get old? I don’t think so. Besides Don Diablo, I don’t many other producers with as many high quality remixes as 33 year old bass player turned producer, Fred Falke. Notice I said high quality, I know there are producers who release something new every two days but we’re talking about mixes that can last, that are many times more engaging and fulfilling than their original counterparts. Anyways, Falke is French and looks more like a member of a jam band than house producer (which should explain the picture of Little Boots). His sound is infectious, uptempo yet never overbearing. Think of it as the perfect background music for your bachelor pad dinner parties. He did some of his most notable non-remix work fellow French co-producer Alain Quême, also known as Alan Braxe, a key figure in the French Electro scene. Together the duo produced what some would describe as very tasteful and glamorous dance music – check out Bliss. Sadly, the two have recently parted ways but continue to make great music. Here’s are some EMPT favorites. Enjoy.
