Sunday is music drawn from the Californian desert, music that Aussie producer Aaron Shanahan has provoked from its rocks and rinsed from its open sky. As musical director and singer for iconic prog-dance band Miami Horror, Aaron has spent over half a decade performing, writing and collaborating — a current of exploration that has swept him inexorably towards the heart and heat of Sunday.
Sunday is a drenching of the senses — kaleidoscopic pop drifting over modulating textures. “Waiting For You” is Sunday’s first cut — a wistful, rosy ode to anticipating a lover — begins with a skittering beat and soft, looped chords that lift the melody into a fixed dreamscape. And as he admits softly “Been in this place too long, so I’m headed for the sun,” the track blooms into its break, the tranquil, emotive melody falling as the rhythm amps up and synths lift the track to new heights, repeating “and I’m waiting for you, I’m waiting for you.”
“Waiting For You” will be released with the B Side “That’s Believing” and a forthcoming music video.
Having made a big impact with their debut releases in 2015, Anglo-French duo Loframes (London based singer/songwriter James Yuill and Antibes producer/restauranteur Franck Russo) kickstart the new year with a brand new remix of Australian synth/indie/pop stars Miami Horror’s ‘Cellophane’. The perfect winter pick-me-up, Loframes give the already sunny original an extra injection of sunshine and transforming the track into a sparkling house number sure to raise the temperature on dance floors worldwide.
Releasing their debut, ‘Get Real (Can’t Touch Your Love)’, back in April 2015 to widespread acclaim from press, DJs and the public, Loframes built on that success with their club hit ‘In Love With You’ and remixes for the likes of French Electronic Music pioneer Black Devil Disco Club and British singer David Harks. With several more remixes set for release in the coming months the pair are just putting the finishing touches to their next single due out this spring.
Rounding out an incredible year off the back of their sophomore full length album, All Possible Futures, the Miami Horror lads are back with their pulsing remix of Moullinex’s song “Can’t Stop”. Perfectly timed, their take on the song sees you transported to the middle of the dance floor at your favorite late night underground.
The band has also just announced a number of additional live tour dates including stops across the USA, Mexico, South America, and Australia. If you haven’t seen this five piece band live yet, do yourself a favor and get to one of the below dates as soon as possible. We dare you not to dance.
Surahn “Wonderful" (Aeroplane & Miami Horror Remixes)
At tail end of 2012 DFA released an incredible debut EP by singer songwriter producer genius Surahn, also a member of The Swiss & band member in Empire of the Sun. We followed that EP with a slam dunk remix of "Watching The World” from Prins Thomas, and now DFA & Surahn have 2 more to share – Aeroplane & Miami Horror. Both remixes succeedwonderfully in translating Surahn’s soulful pop single “Wonderful” into 2 bright & blissful bangers.
Shit Robot “We Got A Love” (Paul Woolford Remix & Dub)
The creative partnership of Marcus Lambkin aka Shit Robot & Reggie Watts yielded "We Got A Love” one of the wonkiest house singles DFA has released. When we asked DFA remixing alumni Paul Woolford to have a crack at the tune, we had no idea Paul & his Special Deliveryproject would take off in such a major way. Either way, he strips and flips the rubbery soul of it into something leaner – and does very nuanced work to a special track. Both the vocal and dub are worth trying out, perhaps back to back?
The Juan Maclean “Feel Like Movin’” (Leon Vynehall Remix)
Feel Like Movin’ was named Best New Track by Pitchfork. This officially makes it relevant and "critically acclaimed” so we won’t spend any more time except to say it is the best song made by anyone ever and includes Nancy Whang on vocals. The remixing duties of this went to the capable and English hands of “overnight sensation” Leon Vynehall who turned in a sensational remix virtually overnight. As many have already brought to our attention, the remixing “rules”. It does.
