Dexterous Swedish house master John Dahlback is back with another finely tuned offering for his homegrown Mutants imprint. In the wake of last months remix duties for Lazy Rich, “Don’t Stop” is exemplary of John’s consistent balance of melodic stamina and low-end electro house. Back with eclectic force, the long serving maestro sails into his North American tour armed with another pristine example of cutting-edge club fuel.
When Norweigan songstress Annie released her second album Don’t Stop in 2009, a flurry of reputable dance producers rolled up their sleeves to rework the indie dance princess’s lusty vocal tracks. Today for our Weekend Rewind, we revisit New York-based Designer Drugs‘ take on the original. DD takes the heavy 80s synth influence and summery vibes of the original and meld it into a harder-hitting dance track with a noticeable stuttering bassline. Stream and download the track below.
As nu-disco continues to pick up speed, artists like Gigamesh aren’t slowing in bringing on funky productions dripping with disco-era appeal. Matt Marsuka aka Gigamesh first gained recognition for his poppy remixes, but it was his clear sense of genre fusion that caught our ear. The Minneapolis-based producer is championed for his remixes of Two Door Cinema Club, Foster The People and Katy B to name a few, but his latest output is a mastered version of his 2012 “Don’t Stop.” The new adaptation, “Don’t Stop (Version 2.0)” gives listeners a polished rendition of the already twinkling disco production. Though the updated rework does not add much when it comes to new sounds, the vocals of Jana Nyberg shine through the perfected bubbling beat. Stay tuned to Gigamesh’s soundcloud for the free download.
