Best of the Rest is a daily feature from Dancing Astronaut that recaps the most important posts of the day as well as the stuff we didn’t get to. With the rapidity that dance music news and releases come out it’s difficult for us to hit everything — we hope BOTR serves as a catch-all. Make sure to check it out at the end of each day to ensure you don’t miss anything!
Lifelike & A-Trak release ‘Don’t Stop,’ Gigamesh, Mauvais Cliché, The Bloody Sisters hop on remix train
We’ve come to associate French producer LIFELIKE with fellow countrymen Alan Braxe, the late DJ Mehdi, Justice, and Daft Punk and known he’s been working on his debut artist album, Future Disco, for quite some time now. With Kitsuné Maison’s release of the first single off the album “Don’t Stop” as a remix package we now get our first tasty bits of this disco-techno goodness.
A-Trak‘s ever-skillful turntablism complements LIFELIKE’s on-point French electro-disco production. The remix duties go to Minnesotan Gigamesh (who manages to give the track even more of a vintage feel) as well as Parisians Mauvais Cliché and The Bloody Sisters. If that wasn’t enough, the EP release also includes club and extended mixes. Check out a sampling below.
Start your Saturday off right with this fiercely funky mix from French house producer, LIFELIKE. Clocking in at just under 40 minutes and featuring some of the top nu-disco and French house tracks of the moment, this mix is the perfect remedy to that anthem-induced headache you got last night. With cuts from The Knocks and Fred Falke, Kano, Kraak & Smaak, and Chromeo this one is sure to please any funk-fiends in our audience.Posted by
