#diSKOAverweekly: Week of September 18, 2019
diSKOAverweekly_2018_c.jpg

I’ve decided to make more work for myself with diSKOAver weekly! So exciting!

I feel like it’s not fair to the bands I feature in this playlist to not give them the same amount of love I do with all the other features I do so I’ve decided to do a tweets worth of info on each track because after all sharing is caring and boy do I give so many fucks about putting these songs in your hands.

OKAY HERE WE GO!

  1. Moon Boots - “You Won’t See Me Cry (feat. Little Boots)

    This cut from the new Moon Boots record is my personal slice of discotastic heaven. The rest of the record is super fun, too.

  2. DallasK - “I Know”

    Gonna be honest, kind of embarrassed that I’m just now getting into DallasK but damn I picked a fucking banger to get on board.

  3. Mason - “Rhythm In My Brain”

    Honestly it’s not fair that Mason is so perfect. And he’s SO CASUAL about dropping so many bops. This one is SUCH 💥A 💥VIBE💥.

  4. Los Padres - “Boomerang (feat. Nina Sung)”

    Holy shit my home state over here making me SO PROUD with this house hitttttttttt. Def gonna be keeping an eye out on this duo for what they do next. 👀👀👀

  5. RAAVE TAPES - “stabs”

    I have been OBSESSED with this song since I heard it. They’re like a lovely intersection of The Rapture, Does It Offend You Yeah, Crystal Castles, and Late of the Pier. I WANT MORE DANCE PUNK LIKE THIS. GIVE IT TO ME

  6. CRX - “Walls”

    Fun fact: Josh Homme from QOTSA produced this whole record. Love how fucking high energy this is. Oh and Nick Valensi from The Strokes is the singer so you know these dudes aren’t fuckin around.

  7. Tomos - “An Intermission”

    If I could float around in space to this I would be pretty hype about it. No, I’m not high.

  8. Cashmere Cat - “FOR YOUR EYES ONLY”

    This new single is quite lovely and I’m very happy that they’ll be playing Webby Hall in December.

  9. Sparrows - “Do U Wanna Dance?”

    Something about the synths in this makes me think of “Sync” from the FEZ soundtrack but more energetic and that pleases me very much.

  10. Rejje Snow - “LMFAO”

    I need to spend more time with Rejje’s last record that this track is from. It’s very much my shit, but I bet you’ll be able to tell why this one was my favorite. 😂

  11. AJ Abdullah - “Oh, the Moon!”

    HOW SWEET IS HIS VOICE!? HOW SWEET IS THIS FUCKIN’ SONG!? I’m glad I decided to check my email before I pulled tracks for this week’s update today. This was such a delightful surprise.

  12. MXMS - “What’s My Name?”

    This one is a real gut punch. Funeral pop duo MXMS released this on World Suicide Prevention Day and if it doesn’t make your eyes water a little bit you might be dead inside?????????

  13. Sego x Vacationer - “YAH.”

    Sego and Vacationer teamed up to cover Kendrick Lamar and it’s just so….. *chef’s kiss*

  14. Hunjiya - “go to bed (feat. Ben Hon)”

    My good friend and neighborhood troubadour Jesse Ruben introduced me to Hunjiya (born Alice Kim) when I ran into him on the street a few weeks ago and was like, “you’d fucking love Alice’s music” AND HE WAS RIGHT. Her new EP is FANTASTIC.

  15. Sam Hollis - “Miranda”

    I have been sitting on this Sam Hollis jam for way too long (Sorry Sam). Even though he’s homeys with Timi Temple it’s TOTALLY DIFFERENT VIBE A BOY DO I MEAN VIIIIBBBBEEEE.

  16. Hundredth - “Whatever”

    So this band gradually pivoted from essentially hardcore to shoegaze and it…..totally fucking works. The older stuff is fine, but they really wear this new direction INCREDIBLY WELL.

IF YOU’VE STUMBLED INTO THIS POST AFTER I’VE SWAPPED OUT THESE TRACKS DO NOT PANIC!! I GOTCHU FAM! You can grab these (and a fuckload more music) over in the archive.

ENJOY! 💖

[SONG OF THE DAY] Mason - "Drowning In Your Love (feat. Jem Cooke)
Mason-02-hi-res-1-1068x712.jpg

Amsterdam producer Mason very casually launched a banger into the universe on Friday and I wish I had been more adequately prepared because “Drowning In Your Love” packs quite the glittery disco punch. The track features vocal stylings from London singer-songwriter Jem Cooke, who from the looks of her Spotify profile has been on her hustling A-game because she’s got hella features. Def going to be keeping tabs on her whereabouts ESPECIALLY when Mason has nothing but wonderful things to say about her on Facebook.

And with that, your Monday has briefly transformed into feeling like a Friday. You’re welcome.

Fri May 24 - Drop Hong Kong
Sat May 25 - Pepper Shenzhen China
Sun May 25 - Vinyl House Shenzhen China
Th May 30 - Octagon Tokyo Japan
Sat June 01 - Soap, Seoul S-Korea

[SONG OF THE DAY] Mason - "Disruptor"

NEW MUSIC FRIIIIIIDDDDAAAYYYYYYY 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

It’s officially October because I’m so overwhelmed with everything that dropped today but in the spirit of making sure you can dance your way through the weekend I am leaving you with the latest from Dutch DJ Mason, “Disruptor”.
For over twenty years now Mason has had this “fuck you I’m doing it my way” approach to both music and the industry, which has in turn made him into one hell of a musician. His sound is so wonderfully eccentric and distinctive that you always know when a new track drops it’s going to be catchy quirky little banger and “Disruptor” is very much that.

The single comes with 2 remixes from the likes of Pimpo Gama and Malikk as well as a single edit in case you don’t have a minute and a half extra to be a proper house head.

Happy weekend!

[Download] Toto - "Africa (Mason's Re-Jig)"

Hi hi I'm not dead I have just been super busy between switching jobs and MOVING BACK TO BROOOOKKKKLLLLLLYYYNNNN that um you know gushing to the internet about music on any platform but twitter dot com gets to be a bit time consuming tbh. 

Anywho, I have played this an embarrassing number of times today but it has made me so fucking happy that I ain't even mad tho. If you have been following along with Mason you'll have noticed that he really stepped up his internetting and recently asked his fans what song he should remix next. Apparently there was an overwhelming number of requests for Toto's 1982 classic, "Africa" and let me tell y'all the dude D E L I V E R E D. 

Don't take my word for it, have a listen below. 

BTW - amongst his stellar internetting he's also been doing a weekly mixshow podcast thing called The Animal Language Show. He's currently 16 weeks strong and each show runs about an hour of danceable delights. Definitely worth a listen if you're looking to dance and dig up new tunes. 

More soon promise! 

Remix, Baby Bandskibbe!Mason
[Listen] Mason - "Toucan"

yoooooo the sun is shining in NYC and I just found my new favorite track to strut my stuff to! 

Enter: producer/DJ/label owner Mason hailing from Amsterdam! In a completely serendipitous moment I happened to catch BBC R1 Dance's tweet about another song of his, "Rhino" (which I cannot find a full version of on BBC but there is this clip). Being the curious person I am when the BBC claims something is the "Hottest Record In The World " I decided to look into this gentleman myself and WOW WOW WOW WOW there is so much goodness going on that I can't wait to spend some quality time this evening going through all of it. 

In addition to what has me dancing in my chair to presently, "Toucan", Mason also has a label called Animal Language, which appears will be chocked full of artists I will soon be gushing about based on the few clips I checked out on Soundcloud

I will report back with more findings once I dig into this but MY EARS ARE JUST SO HAPPY I HAD TO SHARE AS SOON AS I COULD! 

Listen to "Toucan" below! 

SO!? Do we love or do we L 😍 V E!?!?!?!
