Fresh off the back of the languorous poolside disco and tropical pop of their superb debut album “Shapes On Shapes” released last November, LA-based disco-house duo Wild & Free have returned with a collection of essential remixes from label mates and influences alike by revisiting the heady disco of recent single “Ferns and Stuff”. The four-track remixes EP features a reworks from Xinobi, Boys Get Hurt, and a “Discotexas Club Mix”. And if that’s not enough, the legendary New Yorker Justin Strauss, who has produced and mixed records and remixes for the likes of LCD Soundsystem, La Roux and Goldfrapp, contributing a ‘Whatever/Whatever’ mix as part of the slick and hugely influential production duo he formed with Bryan Mette. Let’s get cosmic with this nine-minute great of “Ferns and Stuff” from Whatever/Whatever.

The “Ferns and Stuff Remixes” EP is out now on Discotexas. Buy it here

Berlin-based producer and Relish head honcho Robi Insinna, aka Headman, recently dropped an EP featuring reworks of classic tracks by Swiss singer-songwriter Stephan Eicher, a former member of the legendary new wave band Grauzone of “Eisbaer” fame. Alongside Headman/Robi Insinna’s great rework of “Nice”, the EP also includes a sublime eight-minute remix of “Les Filles Du Limmatquai” from Whatever/Whatever, the New York duo of veteran producer Justin Strauss and Bryan Mette. What a ride! Both original tracks are taken from Stephan Eicher’s 1984 album “Les Chansons Bleues”.
