since we can no longer rely on Aeroplane to produce guaranteed instant joy, TITTW we post remixes, summer jams, etc that recreate similar spirit

bump because the cold snap is making me long for sunkissed disco-house like the kind Aeroplane used to make

I really really really love the Aeroplane mix of the Rapture's "Sail Away"! sadly the one they did for Storm Queen & released last week is godawful but the Rapture one is probably my favorite Aeroplane mix since like 2009.

Two more remixes from Plastic Plates worthy of mention:

Katy Perry - The One that Got Away (Plastic Plates Remix)
PP wrench more pathos out of KP than I thought she was capable of.

I Blame Coco - Turn Your Back On Love (Plastic Plates Remix). Sting's uncanny daughter can write a great chorus, though the rest is a bit rote

A year old, but Jeremy Glenn - New Life (Perseus "Summer of '83" Remix) really satisfied my need for a soul man crooning over Tangerine Dream's "Love on a Real Train" from the Risky Business soundtrack:

The French Express label (Perseus, Chris Malinchek, Jonas Rathsman, Moon Boots) has been the leading light of this stuff for a year now. Moon Boot's "Sugar" from earlier in the year is more or less a remix/edit of Janet's "If", and its still flawless.

The blog The Last Gas Station does decent work covering the sub-genre. Some pointers: The Magician's Magic Tape set lists (they're all on La.Ga.Sta), Surf Ambassador Hendo's setlists, every thing on the French Express label, most Kitsuné label compilations, and half of Youtube user Majestic Casual's uploads.

Of current note, French Express, just mentioned above, now have a UK #2 with Chris Malinchak's "So Good to Me". And early stalwarts Classixx finally brought out their debut album Hanging Gardens.

Tons of freebies on soundcloud from the standout names like Plastic Plates, Perseus, Gigamesh, Moon Boots, Villa, Moonlight Matters, Breakbot, Yuksek, Goldroom, Flight Facilities etc.

Have I mentioned how much I love Moon Boots? I LOVE Moon Boots:

thank you. many of the stuff are too poppy for me but there are definitely some gems there.

Probably too poppy for Durrr cubed, but the Kitsuné Soleil Mix 2 sounds promising.

Not seen this posted on ilx anywhere, but the Todd Terje remix of Bryan Ferry is pretty great

For the price of a Facebook like, the fixie bike manufacturer Solé sponsors monthly hour-long mixes by sunshine disco producers. Classix, Gigamesh, Goldroom, Oliver, Plastic Plates, RAC, Treasure Fingers etc. each have an installment, with tracklists typically available at the artists' Soundcloud page.

Shall we begin our Summer Jams of 2014 countdown?

Ariana and the Rose – In Your Bed (Oliver Nelson Remix) on Soundcloud was quite nice too.

Seems a bit early, but with the strange weather these days, maybe summer starts in March now...

is there an up-to-date thread for this sort of stuff these days?

Closest would be the rolling Tropical House thread.

Does anyone still listen to Vito's or The Magician's mixes? I see them come up on my feeds but don't think I've listened to one in over three or four years. Stephen's Magic Tape mixes are into the #60s now.

groovypanda, Wednesday, 8 June 2016 08:52 (one year ago) Permalink

Vito's only doing one or two a year now; I'm sure I listen to them but they don't make any impact. Haven't listened to a Magic Tape since before I Dont Know What To Do came out.

Listened to (the song) We Can't Fly yesterday though, and it still holds up. Having not heard the album, I'm happy to think of the song as a culmination of the Aeroplane project

they don't make any impact

I've seen Vito DJ solo a couple of times since the split without really making an impact either tbf. but it was fine? crowd was dire the second time, so

glandular lansbury (sic), Wednesday, 8 June 2016 18:02 (one year ago) Permalink

I feel like songs from The Knocks and Classixx and Satin Jackets albums from this year all belong in this thread.
