Tonight, let’s take a trip to Tokyo on the wings of this fanciful billowing beauty, which comes courtesy of a supernova combination of international talent. British outfit Digital Farm Animals, Toronto’s Shaun Frank, and Canadian electropop troupe Dragonette unite to drench us with neon synths and buoyant beats on Tokyo Nights. For a few brief moments, I feel like I’m walking the streets of Shibuya again, eyes bright with wonder and heart aflutter with love. An exuberant pastiche of indie flavored dance pop and summery electro brightens our night on the feel good anthem, which is available from major outlets, here.

I ran around so much in Austin for SXSW, I oft wondered who out of my friends could actually keep up with me for the week. But there was just so much great music and so many talented artists I had to catch, including Canada’s JAHKOY, who was the reason I rushed several blocks into a bar one afternoon to see before dashing elsewhere right after. The Toronto producer, rapper, and singer songwriter’s song Still In Love is one of my favorites he’s given us so far, its uptempo yet sensual R&B much vibrant, lustrous, and sleek. It’s that very song we get to revisit in a transformed state today, via a succulent remix by British electronic outfit Digital Farm Animals. Prepare yourself for vibrant piano house and smashing hot beats as Digital Farm Animals get that mid week dance party off to a fiery start. This is some classic house, which I’ll always find irresistible.

Just yesterday, Amy Winehouse would’ve turned thirty two. Yes, it was the tragic artist’s birthday. Instead, as we all know, she’s joined the legendary 27 club. British electronic act Digital Farm Animals offers up a proper tribute, intentional or coincidental, via an immensely breathtaking remix of Ms. Winehouse’s Stronger Than Me. In fact, this is the ONLY official remix of a song approved by her family since her passing. It’s a near gutwrenching experience, taking into account the lyrics of the song, Amy’s striking vocals, and the melancholia tinged, reflective atmosphere of the track. Digital Farm Animals’ expert adaptation is an ambient electronica, melodic trip hop, and entrancing breakbeat work of art. This leaves me at one of those special music moments where I can’t help but utter “magic”.

It’s dope video meets hot tune time as we jump into this new clip for Digital Farm Animals’ electronic debut True, a soul house jam that hooks immediately with Miike Snow and Galantis like piano chords. The British producer brings plenty of summer sun and infectious melody on the superb fusion of dance and pop music. There’s no doubt we’ll be hearing more about DFA as the year progresses. The producer has upcoming dates supporting Bondax and has previously supported the likes of Gorgon City. Debut single True is available now on iTunes.

Electronic act Mt. Eden recently revealed an epic tune named Stronger. And by epic, I mean legendary level, just like the duo from New Zealand, who made such a huge impact on the dubstep world with their music these past few years. Stronger is a melodic dubstep track with a theatrically expansive profoundness. Digital Farm Animals offers up the moving, emotive vocals on the track, which walks a fine line between brooding grit and sweeping, supple beauty. Can a chillstep song touch your heart and make you sigh? Stronger clearly answers “yes”. Download this magnificent track on iTunes.

R&B, garage, and the retro 90’s work together in full force on British electronic act Digital Farm Animals’ Didn’t Know, which employs some classic smooth vocals by Yasmin to create a luxurious, silky, but bumping club track. Pitched up vocals and luscious synths give off a warm but playful vibe. The addictive Didn’t Know debuted this week on BBC Radio 1Xtra’s MistaJam show.
