Exclusive, Featured, Progressive House | FNT Premiere: Tom Piper – You Don’t Know (Karboncopy Remix)
Posted by Mel on October 10, 2014
If we’re talking about two guys from Australia, Karboncopy is probably the duo who has provided me with the most pleasurable experience in the past 48 hours from a male. They have released some really good music in the past, but this one is my favorite and has been on repeat since I first heard it two days, or 48 hours ago. An official remix of Tom Piper’s “You Don’t Know” is what they were tasked with and it came out spectacularly. An understated piano carries the excellent vocals to the build where the anthemic melody takes over and climaxes powerfully at the drop. This remix is as good or better than the original, which is also below, and probably Karboncopy’s best to date. The stream can be found exclusively below and the song can be found on Beatport next Monday, October 13th.

Electro pop collective Glitter Wasteland are ready to make their mark on the pop scene with the crooning vocals of mysterious and well traveled front-woman Siri Jantey. Now as befitting such a tune, we find ourselves with several remixes of different styles and flavors. Today, we are here to premiere a remix of “Don’t Let It Go” from Berlin / LA based, underground darkpop leader IAMX, that blends dark and brooding synths with a fluttering arp, hanging there just out of your reach over with Siri Jantley’s haunting vocals. The tune will be all yours on October 13th via On The Fruit Music, but until then, stream it below exclusively.

Bud light wants you to turn up your night, but we want you to turn up your Tuesday (which can be the night as well). In to do just that as DJ duo, Immigré, who as the name suggests were born abroad and immigrated to the States in the 1990s. Val Fluery and Jasmine teamed up in late 2012, and have since released a host of remixes and mixes, while playing at clubs across the country. This mix that we are proud to premiere, features 26 songs in almost as many minutes with quick, sleek mixing that doesn’t just move from drop to drop, but blends in the best parts of each song and quickly. It features tunes from Grimes, Phantogram, Kaytranada, RL Grime and many more. Check out the full tracklist after the jump.

For dance music fans, the name Mellefresh is familiar. She has most notably collabed with Deadmau5 to create Freshmau5 back in the early days of his career on tunes like “Hey Baby” and “Sex Slave”. More recently, the singer, songwriter, producer and DJ has been branching out beyond deadmau5’s twisted mind into drum n bass and tech house / minimal with Alixanderlll, part of the revered Azari & III duo. She is also an accomplished artist in her own right and is taking it out to the world with this self-produced and self-written tune “Apparition”. Melleefresh brings together the modern and the pop sensibilities of the 80s as the robotic voice clashes with the themes of love in the tune. We have the premiere for you until it is released on October 6th via Play Records, so stream away now!

It may be a holiday, but that does not mean vacation from music and premieres. We have another from Fish From Japan, who have tabbed Danielle Rowe to add some sumptuous, soulful vocals to their deep instrumental of floating synths and a marching bass line. The tune already has support from Mistajam on BBC, Mark Farina, Riva Starr and others undoubtedly to come. Grab the tune on Beatport with a very smooth and deep Dubb Disko remix.

You may not be totally familiar with the name Lincoln Jesser, but that is probably going to change soon and his past work is a good indication of that. He previously toured the world as the guitarist of YUNA. Having split off to form his own project a year ago, Lincoln Jesser is finally ready to unveil his final, completed work to the world in the form of an artist album “Modern Color” on September 23rd.
As the singer, songwriter and producer on the album, Lincoln Jesser gives his work an authentic feel in a sound that is by default very manufactured. With its heavy emphasis on synths and mellow, even vocals, Lincoln Jesser has given us just the right teaser for what should be a cracker of an album.
If you pre-order the album, you will get an instant download of “Untold”, which you can only stream right here, right now. Also check him out at any of the dates below that is most convenient. Pre-order the album on iTunes now.
