Lippie: “All The Cities (Acid Washed Remix)”

Last week, we shared with you a great podcast from Berlin-based producer/DJ Andrew Claristidge along with news of his forthcoming solo EP, but now it’s time to hear something new from his French electro duo Acid Washed that we’ve been following for a long time. Everything Acid Washed touched turned to gold and their epic remix of “All The Cities” from fellow French singer/songwriter Laura Peinetti, aka Lippie, is no exception.

On their remix of “All The Cities”, taken from her first solo album “An imaginary Truth”, the duo of Andrew Claristidge and Richard D’Alpert transform the original track into an eight-minute guitar-driven electro workout that feels like a late-night highway drive. This is not the first time that the two have crossed paths, as Lippie has contributed vocals to two songs on Acid Washed’s 2010 self-titled debut album. You can now grab a free download of this remix exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.

And the news gets even better: Acid Washed are getting ready to drop a strong remix package for some standout tracks from their Joakim-produced second album “House Of Melancholy”, released last year via Record Makers. The “House Of Melancholy Remixed” EP will feature four new remixes by the likes of Moscoman, Molécule, Bufi and Miss Kittin. Bring it on!

We’ve lost count of the amount of new releases coming our way from Stockholm’s Johan Cederberg, aka HNNY, but it’s safe to say that this incredibly talented producer continues to amaze us without ever sacrificing quality for quantity. Back in August, HNNY launched his very own “Honey Pot”, his new vinyl-only imprint Yummy, with the release of the single-sided “Surf Dude” 12″, a perfect laid-back piece of Balearic bliss, and now he’s back with a new offering.

The label’s first release also comes from HNNY himself in the form of a three-track 12″, which is set to drop in October. Our first taste from that forthcoming record is “12.00″, another fine example of HNNY’s unmistakably style. Give it a spin above, and pre-order your 12” here.

After dropping the single “Where Does This Disco?” just a few weeks ago, Los Angeles-based synth-dance duo YACHT are already back with “Works Like Magic”, another new track from their forthcoming EP on their brand-new label Downtown Records. “Works Like Magic”, the first song they’ve written with the band’s live members Jeffrey Brodsky and Rob “Bobby Birdman” Kieswetter, is an infectious funky tune that stays true to its name. It also featured in a Google Chromecast ad.

In YACHT’s own words: “The science fiction writer J.G. Ballard once said that “sex times technology equals the future.” We argue that sex and technology coexist in our present: we touch, we push buttons, we seek intimacy in screens. When we connect, it works like magic.” The “Where Does This Disco?” EP will arrive on November 11th via Downtown Records. Buy a copy of “Works Like Magic” here.

Toronto-based producer James Harris, aka Hemingway, has nailed it once again with this excellent Afro-funk remix of Bag Raiders’ dancefloor-ready jam “Nairobi”, taken from their recent “Nairobi/Savannah” EP on Modular. In Hemingway’s capable hands, the original cut has turned into something completely different, a laid-back sunshine affair with trumpets, guitar and even banjo that creates a longing for a summer gone by. Much more a rework than your average remix, this version of “Nairobi” is pure class. Grab it for free below.
