So usually after the shows it takes me a second to wind down. Grab a nightcap and these jams will take you from where you are to where you need to be.
Spice Girls – Say You’ll Be There
This is an after party right? Next time you hear this song listen to the backing track, its basically a G funk record.
Chemise – She Can’t Love You 1982
A record that works equally well on the floor and in the bedroom.
Louis Cole – When You’re Ugly
Louis Cole is a mad genius, most people would recognice his work with Thundercat.
Jarreau Vandal – Nobody Else (ft. Brasstracks & Niya Wells)
Ok so I actually remixed this one but the original by Jarreau Vandal is still one of my heavy favorites, I’ll rock with it in 2069.
HONNE – Day 1 ◑
I was lucky enough to tour with HONNE awhile ago. Lovely musicians and even nicer people, this might be their best work.
GoldLink – Fall in Love ft. Ciscero
Goldlink always untouchable you might as well put on the whole record.
Fela Kuti – Water no get enemy
I wonder how many babies have been made to this one over the years. Also one of the most sampled artists.
Mac Ayres – Easy
Imagine if Mr Rogers got his heart broken and wrote a song about it.
Rihanna – James Joint (Audio)
Riri stays making the right moves except I wish this track was 12 minutes.
Miguel Atwood Ferguson & Carlos Nino- Fall In Love
Slum Village forever. Miguel Atwood Ferguson with the definitive tribute to Dilla and Baatin.
Rising Vancouver based DJ / producer Pat Lok teams up with LA’s Future-funk duo Party Pupils for an explosive club banger ‘From The Back’ featuring the talents of NYC rapper / producer Dances With White Girls due this January through Kitsuné Musique. Pat says: “I had been following PP on Twitter and saw they were talking about an A-Ha remix,
so I reached out and sent them some piano ideas for it and that was how we connected. A few months ago we finally met backstage at Electric Forest in Michigan where were both performing and hit it off. They’re based in LA so I went into the studio with Ryan one day and started playing out these chords, he put down some drums and very quickly we had a club jam! It very much captures the vibe and energy of our projects together. I’ve been playing the demos out in in Asia and the US and the response has been great so getting Dances on the final version was the cherry on top”.
Pat Lok has become a staple in the playlists of tastemakers and clubs worldwide – as the sole Canadian artist on legendary French label Kitsuné Musique and the first act signed to Pete Tong’s new PTSongs. With a debut album already reaching over 4M streams across platforms, including official remixes for Galantis and SG Lewis, the talented producer is ready to announce his upcoming EP via Kitsuné Musique later this year. Party Pupils formed when MAX, after a string of solo hits, including the Billboard Hot 100 (#20) single ‘Lights Down Low’ and his Noah Cyrus collaboration, ‘Team’, got together with RyanEXOE in 2016 to form Party Pupils as a party-starting, future-funk dance duo.
While making a name for themselves off innovative remixes and covers, Party Pupils were hand-picked to support both Louis The Child and Steve Aoki, respectively, on various US dates. Fresh off the buzz of their recent single ‘Love Me For The Weekend’ feat Ashe, described by Billboard Magazine as ‘hot and house-y’, the duo are pleased to announce details of their debut release with Pat Lok on Kitsuné Musique. Both artists head off on a co-headline tour this January across the US this January.
