  • Disco Friday #14 MP3

    Well this is strange isn’t? Haven’t done a Disco Friday since March 30th! For some reason in the past couple of months, free nu-disco music has been quite sparse. Sure there have been superb tracks emanating from the genre recently,  but there hasn’t been a weekly surplus of tunes that we’ve grown accustomed to. And with prolific producers like Alexandre Louvre calling it quits...

  • Hermitude – Speak Of The Devil (Ren Riz remix) MP3

    Ren Riz has just released one of the most eclectic songs I have heard in a while, and certainly something at the top of the Upside stream. It has an outdoor, summer vibe that can only be fully understood if listened to from start to finish. I’ve picked up on two unique characteristics Ren Riz injects here. Listen to the way he chops and parcels “Speak Of The Devil” — the combination of ch...

  • Jonquil – RUN (Filthy Dukes Remix) MP3

    Today, I’d like to share some lovely sounds courtesy of Filthy Dukes, who never cease to entertain me. They chose to remix “RUN,” originally by Jonquil, and what a perfect selection. Jonquil has such a raw and natural appeal to the their vocal and instrumental compositions — it literally stops me dead sometimes. Just give their jam, “It Never Rains,” a listen and you’ll ge...

  • Flashlights – Slow Down (Slow Magic Remix) MP3

    “Slow Magic is the sound made by an unknown imaginary friend.” Although this is as much as I really know about the masked-performing artist, his brand of dreamwave has gotten me hooked for the past couple of months. If his latest remix of Flashlights’ “Slow Down” is any sign of  the quality of music that he produces, Slow Magic is definitely a producer you should be keeping an eye ou...

  • Scuola Furano vs The Glimmers vs Joakim – Nothing On Fire (Diyqee Mashup) MP3

    Scuola Furano vs The Glimmers vs Joakim – Nothing On Fire (Diyqee Mashup) In this exclusive mashup, Diyqee picks up the remixing pieces where Joakim, The Glimmers, and Scuola Furano left off. Out of Paris, France, Diyqee is an up and coming artist to watch and has released several of his own “DQ Tapes”  that are worth a listen. In “Nothing On Fire,” Diyqee works in a strong introd...

  • Soul Clap – Let It Go (Miguel Campbell’s Club Mix) MP3

    Soul Clap have been dominating my playlists recently. The duo, hailing from Boston, have in the last few years become synonymous with perfected mixing, funky production incorporating the most diverse musical influences you’re bound to see and educating the rest of the world as to what they should be listening to. This is a calling that resonates particularly well with what we here at Upside Sounds aspire to do...

  • Shake Aletti – Lights & Sparks (Mighty Mouse Dub) MP3

    There is such a natural, feel good groove to this song that makes me smile BIG. The original jam by Shake Aletti was released about a month ago on February 6, and this new remix by Mighty Mouse picks up where the Sheffield boys left off. I enjoy how Mighty Mouse lifts the songs spirits even higher and turns it into a breezy dub rework. The emotions Shake Aletti attributed to the original certainly still ring true....

  • Summer Heart – A Million Times MP3

    It appears David Alexander’s brand of summer-oriented chillwave has gotten fairly popular in recent times. With his latest remix of Sameblod‘s track “Loud” climbing into hype machine’s most popular songs this week, Summer Heart’s music carries with it a mass appeal that I can see steadily increasing around this time of the year. Beats made for the sun, Summer Heart is an artist ...

  • Great Skies – Back To The Start MP3

    Only 20 years old, London producer Great Skies is guaranteed to put you in a surreal mood. We have featured him on Upside a number of times — and for very good reason. He has a signature style that our head blogger, Yaz, describes perfectly. He calls it ‘ambient garage.’ By combining two-step rhythms and vocal chopping, Great Skies is able to create pure beauty. “Back to the Start” is ...

  • Disco Friday #12 MP3

    We got quite the treats for you in Disco Friday this week. One of them just so happens to be Digitalfoxglove’s latest remix of Thrill Kill‘s track “Formula.” Even though he’s fairly busy working on his debut EP that’ll be released later this summer, Digitalfoxglove is always looking out for his fans and is letting us share his remix for free! Other treats that we have in store f...

  • The Golden Filter – Killed in Room 616 (John Talabot’s ‘Kill Me’ Remix) MP3

    At this point, John Talabot can do no wrong. Whether its remixes like the one I’m sharing with you today or his fantastic album “ƒin,” which is without a doubt my favorite album of the year so far. What I like about his music so much is how hard it is to label. As can be heard in his latest remix of The Golden Filter, his sound always seems to be weaving in and out of genres. Whether it be indi...

  • Stumbleine – Heart Shaped Locket (Essáy’s Sunchain Remix) MP3

    Even though this was only released yesterday, it has already reached the 1000 download limit on soundcloud. Fans like no other, Essáy has once again decided to treat his loyal followers to another fantastic freebie. A remix of his close colleague  Stumbleine, Essáy takes a shoegazed, R&B sampled masterpiece and manages to give it a little bit more “pop.” Adding in a mixture of pla...

  • Taquwami – vvi h You MP3

    You know the phrase, “You can call me anything, just don’t call me late for dinner.” Well, for me it’s more like “You can call me anything, just don’t call me late on hearing great new music.” Sadly though, it seems that I have let some fairly awesome tunes slip past my musical radar in the past month. One of these tracks happens to be from Tokyo producer Taquwami. Taquwam...

  • Oxford – Head Back MP3

    When swamped with work and deadlines to make, nothing gets me going like a little, mellowed out nu-disco to keep me working into the long hours of the night. If it wasn’t for the young, French producer Oxford and his latest track “Head Back,” I’d probably be asleep at this point. But thanks to his elegant melodies and blissful arrangements of lush-retro synth, I have something to keep me ...

  • Bombay Bicycle Club – How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep (Tom Vek’s Big Beatnik Mix) MP3

    Strangely, I don’t think London producer Tom Vek has ever made an appearance on Upside Sounds. To make up for this atrocity, I’d like to present you with his latest remix of Bombay Bicycle Club track “How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep.” A fan of the original, I was quite skeptical on whether I would like this edit of not. But after taking a couple of listens to it, I soon became conflicte...

  • Disco Friday #11 MP3

    In this week’s edition of Disco Friday, I’ve decided to feature tracks from the usual suspects of disco-makers and dancefloor killers. People who made the list include artists such as Le Crayon with his groovy edit of Allure’s song “I Will Change,” and Alexandre Louvré, who delivers a brand-new original “She’s A Silver Lion.”  Those also on the list just so ha...

    Even though this came out last month on soundcloud, Kidnap Kid, an upcoming producer from Leeds, has recently elected to release his latest remix of Disclosure’s track “Tenderly” for free! Unlike his counterpart Melé, who decided to speed up the track’s tempo by adding in flares of lightening  quick chord progression and forceful percussion, Kidnap Kid decides to stay true to the pa...

    Remember when I said we’d be hearing a lot more from Oliver Rado on Upside Sounds? Well the German producer is back and this time he has decided to give The Weeknd‘s massive hit “Rolling Stone” a little bit of that deep-house love. Although deep-house remixes can leave a track sounding unnaturally heavy sometimes, every addition Rado makes to this song sounds light and agile. From itâ€...

    Eat More Cake have recently decided to take their chance at revamping Supernova‘s 2011 dance track “Beat Me Back.” Deciding to keep the enticing, tech-house feel from the original intact, EMC manage to improve upon the song’s melody by mashing it up with the vocals from their track “Red Sky.” Although Alexis Griffith’s voice was initially paired up with sultry, dis...

  • Disco Friday #10 MP3

    My favorite day of the week is Friday, hands down. I say this not only because the week is over, but because Upside gets to share the hottest nu-disco tracks out there. Our lead off song by U-Tern is straight fire and Perseus dishes out the most evocative emotional song I’ve heard in a while.  This week also features beautiful Charlotte Gainsbourg’s voice and zazzy bass lines from Jay Lamar and Je...
