Those of you out there who have been waiting for a nü-disco/Daft Punk blend need wait no longer. Solidisco impress us again as they deliver yet another fresh serving of nü-disco with their rework of Daft Punk’s classic “Superheroes.” All the elements of the original remain intact yet are spiced up with Solidisco’s 80′s stylings.

For those of you who are getting slightly exhausted by the constant stream of big room progressive house releases, we have another chilled out gem of a track. With almost a 80′s esque vibe to it, the ’96 Bulls remix of 360′s “Run Alone” is the perfect track to have playing in the background as you hang out by the pool on a hot summer day. To put it another way, Afrojack won’t be closing out his Electric Zoo set with this anytime soon. We recommend you sit back, hit play and just enjoy the pleasant simplicity of this track. No word yet on a release date or download details but we will keep you updated.

Two Saturdays ago, Diplo featured an extended mix from his protege-of-sorts, Dillon Francis, on his weekly Diplo and Friends radio show on BBC Radio 1 and 1xtra. The mix, which was just made available for free on SoundCloud, features a refreshingly unique blend of lesser-known artists and tracks spanning genres from moombahton to house and nu-disco.
To keep the set contemporary, Dillon mixes in chart-topping hits like Porter Robinson’s “Language,” and recently released tracks including Knife Party’s “Sleaze” and his own remix of Steve Aoki’s “Control Freak.” Clocking in just thirty seconds short of two hours and featuring cameos from Madonna and Arnold Schwarzenegger, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better summertime mix (aside from our own Axis podcast, of course). Download your copy and check after the break for the full tracklist.
Steve Aoki has revealed the official music video for his new single “Control Freak” off his latest full-length album, Wonderland. Featuring producer Blaqstarr and vocalist My Name is Kay, it’s more of an indie nu-disco track, filled with tons of funk guitar. The new single strays away from Aoki’s typical rowdy sound, allowing the cake-smashing DJ to showcase his versatile producing capabilities.
The video transports us back in time to a 1980’s dance party hosted by Steve himself. The clip also includes cameos from Holly Madison, and Samm Levine of Freaks and Geeks. “Control Freak” was filmed in VHS quality, giving it that old-school feel — and like most Aoki shows, it’s nothing but a fabulous time. Check back for a remix package including reworks by Dillon Francis and James Frew to be released June 26.Posted by
It’s hard to prohibit your feet the pleasure of boogying whenever Nu-disco hits the ears. Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Gigamesh has been illuminating the genre through his remixes with 80s synth lines and classic disco components, most notably with his remix of “Pumped Up Kicks” in 2011. Commissioned by a duo from the UK, Punks Jump Up, to collaboratively push the Nu-disco sound, Gigamesh throws a quicker-paced synth onto “Mister Overtime” that seems perfect to accompany some summer driving. With the vocals from another Nu-disco giant, Chromeo’s Dave 1, this track is sure to get anyone moving. Check out Gigamesh’s SoundCloud for more, and grab the release on Beatport now.

Here is Finnish DJ/Producer Lenno’s follow-up to his largely successful recent productions including his remixes of “The Night Out” and “Eyes Wide Open.” Taking on Ricki-Lee’s “Do It Like That,” the youngster keeps the catchy original vocals and adds his signature nu-disco touch with a funky bassline and running synth. Lenno has certainly caught our attention with his past three tracks, so you should join us in keeping an eye out for this kid in the future. No word on an official release yet, but stay tuned.

Fare Soldi (“Make Money” in Italian) are back with their signature, self-described “Frico Disco” sound. Bouncy and carefree, their latest original “Tu Night” is one of their best productions to date, featuring sing-a-long worthy lyrics and some serious groove. Walking a fine line between nu-disco and full on pop, these two disco junkies are destined to leave their mark on US soil soon enough. If the original was a little too soft for you, LBCK electro-fies the original with a touch of grit and a generous use of filters.
