To Moscow we go to re-visit with Pompeya as the duo unleashes upon us a heated disco twirler and smoldering dance rock sweeper of an anthem named Domino via an appropriately neon hued dance video. “Fall like a domino” I probably will once I finish dancing my heart out to the vivacious song, its funky licks, and pumping beats. The Russian pop/funk outfit has served up a sizzling hot jam off of their next EP, which arrives July 14th. Domino is both the EP’s lead single and title track. The full Domino EP was produced by none other than esteemed French house producer Fred Falke. Pompeya will be announcing a new tour shortly, too. I wonder what parts of the world it will be bringing them to, and whether San Francisco might be on the schedule.

Get ready to hop out of your seat and boogie on down to a magnificent whirling, glamorously pulsing mass of indie dance and French disco house, courtesy of, who else, but the great and talented Fred Falke. Fred has remixed Los Angeles trio Midnight Faces’ new single Heavenly Bodies. The torrid track takes this body straight to dance heaven. The remix is a free download at Soundcloud. The captivating Midnight Faces original, mixed by Abe Seiferth (DFA, Yeasayer, Bear In Heaven, RAC), is an evocative treat that unites 80′s new wave with dark post-punk. Stream, here.

Have I been sharing a remix every few days of Fred Falke’s It’s A Memory, which features Elohim and Mansions On The Moon? I just can’t help it, the original is a brilliant track and the remixes that I’ve encountered are all clever and innovative approaches that take us in very diverse directions. Plus, truth be told, I’m much in love with Elohim’s vocals on the track. That voice takes on an even more amplified level of spellbinding enchantment on a wondrous remix offered up by Southern California duo Oliver. The producers give us a very disparate It’s A Memory, taking it into bright and shiny electro pop / nu-disco territory. While prior remixes have been much pensive and rather brooding, Oliver’s It’s A Memory is optimistic and hopeful. These are good memories, happy memories, memories that make the future seem so promising and new. Fred Falke’s It’s A Memory remixes EP will be out February 26th, pre-order now on iTunes

Fred Falke’s indie star studded dance opus It’s A Memory, featuring Elohim and Mansions On The Moon, is receiving some phenomenal remix treatments these days. Last week, we heard a wispy yet grand edit by AMTRAC. This week, we get to lose ourselves in a gorgeously dreamy remix by Brooklyn’s Chrome Sparks. He takes us on a reflective journey with the masterpiece, sending us through mirror lined hallways whose polished glass infinitely echo what once were evanescent memories in prismatic brilliance. The remix will be a part of Fred Falke’s It’s A Memory remix EP, to be released February 26th. Pre-order at various outlets, here.

It’s nearly a year since the last SXSW, and I’m still sitting here feeling rather sheepish that I shook the great hand of venerated French producer Fred Falke in Austin and walked away before realizing who it was. Let’s pretend none of that happened by losing ourselves to a brilliant remix of Fred Falke’s It’s A Memory by Louisville based genius, AMTRAC. The talent studded tune, which features rising electropop virtuoso Elohim and Los Angeles’ Mansions on the Moon, gets a contemplative yet fluttering light makeover. Wispy but deep, panoramic yet intimate, AMTRAC’s It’s A Memory certainly takes us on a gliding, airy walk, or rather, a skipping dance through the grand passages and deep canyons of our recollective minds. Purchase AMTRAC”s remix of It’s A Memory from various outlets, here.

Sort of funny story, but I actually shook hands with Fred Falke then walked away before I realized it was Fred Falke this past March in Austin, but let’s not digress. Instead, let’s focus on how blissed out and slickly uplifting the legendary French producer’s latest remix is. Chordashian’s vibrant, summery synthpop song Skyscraper Souls, which features ever endearing Freedom Fry on guest vocals, gets an epic indie dance re-working by Fred. It’s a disco laced French house jam that retains the Brooklyn duo’s original’s melodic tendencies, but takes the song to irresistibly intoxicating levels of percolating euphoria. The glistening, glowing remix is out now on iTunes.

Much respected French producer Fred Falke offers up a slick and soaring remix of British pop artist Will Young’s Thank You. The original’s infectious melody and earnest sentiment are taken to new expansive heights on the regal and majestic summer edit. Fred’s remix is a liberating experience, with its unfettered flow and grand build up.

I’m quite looking forward to the release of UK artist Indiana’s debut album No Romeo, due out January 19th. The most recent taste she gave us off the album is Only The Lonely, another example of her enchanting electropop style. Only The Lonely has now been remixed by none other than great French producer Fred Falke! There’s a sugary sweetness to Falke’s remix and its luminous, throbbing allure.

Australia’s Flight Facilities has been releasing these awesome decade mixtapes for the past while for Triple J radio, and they’ve finally dropped the one for 2002-2012! Get ready for dance for an hour! This is INSANE. Just look at the list below. WOW. Pasting over their long blurb and tracklist for the mix:

This is the final installment of the decade mixes. But this time it’s a little bit different.

This is the decade that turned us into what we are now. This mix is effectively our condensed dance music bible (believe it or not, there are lots of tunes we couldn’t fit in). The mix is done in the same style in which we remember our clubbing experiences. Most notably, The Bang Gang parties every Friday night in Sydney. Those guys were a HUGE part of why we became DJ’s in the first place. This mix will, for better or worse, dig up a few dance-floor ‘moments’ for anyone who took part in the madness.

So many of these songs are classics to us, and probably are to many others too. It’s hard to hear these songs without cracking a smile and remembering a great time of irresponsibility.

You won’t find too many mixtapes in this style anymore. And certainly not from us. But we had to show what this decade was all about to us, and how it brought us to what we do today.

We’re dedicating this mix to our belated friend and mentor, Ajax. He’s had more influence on this final chapter than anyone will ever know.

Thanks to everyone who got behind these mixes. It’s been a long ride.

2012-2022 Mix coming in 9 years.

NOTE: If you’ve downloaded the past mixes to your iTunes or Ipod, you’ll know that they are broken down into chapters by each song. Well, there are over 80 songs in this mix so breaking it down into 15 second portions was going to be a little ridiculous. So we’ve broken this one down into chapters by year. Some are longer than others (2005 getting 10 minutes – too many huge tunes in one year!). You’ll find the track listing in the ‘Lyrics’ section of the iTunes info.

Don’t forget to name those events with the time markers!
