What better way to start your Monday than with a delicious picnic, offered by one of our favorite labels, Discotexas. Today, the ever-excellent Portuguese label dropped its second “Discotexas Picnic” compilation just in time for summer.
The ten-track compilation featuring five unreleased tracks by Moullinex, RAC, Xinobi, Jay Lamar & Jesse Oliver, and Da Chick, alongside tracks from the label’s usual suspects, like Zimmer, Mirror People, Kamp! and Rebeka. A perfect compilation to help soundtrack these hot summer days.
Here we have RAC’s André Allen Anjos groovy new remix of Moullinex’s “To Be Clear”, featuring vocals from Iwona Skwarek (of Rebeka), and Xinobi’s dancefloor-ready remix of Justin Faust’s “Space Rhumba”. Check out both remixes below, and stream the whole thing here. Enjoy with an icy cold glass of lemonade!
“Picnic II” also includes Da Chick’s new synth-pop jam “Lotta Love”. You can now watch the official video for the track below. Super fun!

Helsinki-based producer Jesse Oliver, whom you may remember from his collaborations with fellow producer Jay Lamar on last year’s “Diamonda” EP, has retured to Discotexas with his first solo release titled “Oceans”. And it’s a great one!
The release consists of two original tracks, “Oceans” and “Nicodemus”, and a fine remix by Portuguese producer/DJ Rui Maia, better known as Mirror People. The disco-flavored title track is our favorite cut on that EP and it’s certainly worth a listen. Give it a spin above, and take a long ride along the ocean.
Jesse Oliver’s “Oceans” EP is out now on Discotexas. Get it here.

After last year’s “Kaleidoscope”, the always amazing Portuguese producer/DJ Rui Maia, better known as Mirror People, returns to Discotexas with yet another great track, called “Machines”, that has an infectious groove. This tune is based on a sh09 – sh101 – Ms10 sequence with filters and punk funk bass. Give it a spin above, and make sure to check out the video for “Machines” below. The video is a remix version of the original work “SCANTS” (ANTS in my scanner), an intriguing project by French filmmaker François Vautier. In case you missed it, you can read our interview with Mirror People here.
Mirror People’s “Machines” is out now on Discotexas. Get it here.
DATE: October 5th, 2012
The amazing Portuguese producer Xinobi, aka Bruno Cardoso, is back in a big way with his wicked new single “(I Hate The Sound of) Guitars”, a dark and epic disco-house banger that clocks in at almost eight minutes. If his previous EP “Pirates” on Smile Recordings made us chase nasty pirates on a fantasy boat, with this one we definitely end up playing air quitar on the dancefloor. We’d expect nothing less from Xinobi.
Xinobi’s “(I Hate The Sound of) Guitars” is out now digitally on Discotexas. Pick up the limited edition 12″ of 200 copies in white vinyl with silkscreen on the b- side here. Just in case you missed it, grab his killer edit of Nicolas Jaar’s “And I Say” below.

Brisbane-based producer Charles Murdoch is our best-kept secret. He has already produced some tracks under the name Charlie Why and he’s also a member of the band Mitzi. His solo work sounds great. Here is his lush tune “Ahama” that has a dreamy vibe to it. Love at first listen!
14. Mindless Boogie – My Hero (Kid Who Edit)
The closing track on our late summer compilation is a stunning rework of Tina Turner’s “We Don’t Need Another Hero” by the always amazing Kid Who. It was released back in 2010 on Mindless Boogie, but never as a free download until now, courtesy of Smile Recordings. Drive slow.
