Ultracity – Lonely (Ultracity Shadow Dub)

If haven’t seen the 2014 film ‘Eden‘, directed by Mia Hansen-Løve then you’re missing out. Telling a story of Paul, a Daft Punk contemporary, it follows his journey of discovering house music. From hearing Larry Levan’s exports to pursuing his dream of being a world touring DJ. All throughout there’s a touch of French melancholia. The soundtrack of the movie is absolutely banging. You can check it out here

In particular, there is one scene where Paul plays a freshly released ‘One More Time’ to an ecstatic crowd at Moma Ps1. This Ultacity Shadow Dub could have easily substituted for the early 2000’s French House power hit that claimed the crown of the underground scene. 

The track’s component is the infectious 3 chord loop. It powers through, supported by a thumping kick and reverb-heavy echoing vocals. Its an unashamedly 1990s sound. Emanating good vibes and a groove that is easy to dance too, this is a gem that is a weapon for a DJ performing in an outside environment.

Daniel Bortz – Pictures (Tuff City Kids Remix)

Tuff City Kids remixes have been on the loop all this week, to an extent where it was hard to select my favourite to feature. However, this Pictures remix takes the crown due to its exceptional replay value. A bouncy, progressive nu-disco track that flips the original’s 80s influenced male vocal into a fun ride made for getting you in good-vibes mood. The enigmatic German DJ duo demonstrate here their ability to flip a track on its head, by adding some arp-filled colour.

While you’re at it, checkout this incredible Tuff City Kids track with one of my favourite female vocalists Annie (you might remember her song ‘Antonio‘ from The Guest).
