Today’s Untz: Modern Hearts (Night Drive Remix) / The Knocks

‘Night Drive is the type of music you would hear on a car stereo if Giorgio Moroder and Ray Bradbury were driving late at night through a buzzing metropolis. Inspired by bygone era of glamour and excess, kalioscopic neon lights, Studio 54 and Tony Wilson’s Hacienda, the band pulls influence from acts such as Brian Eno, New Order, OMD, The Drums and LCD Soundsystem to name a few. Night Drive rides a nu-wave of fast-tempoed, synth-based electronic sounds driven by rich guitar melodies and arresting vocal hooks.’

Today’s Untz: What I Like (Bodhi Remix) / Charlie XCX

Here’s a great tune I heard from the blog XLR8R some time ago that I’m now just re-listening to. I’m headed down to the California central coast this weekend so this track will surely be going on that playlist.

Bodhi (Luke & Olly) who hail from Cardiff, Britain have done a great job with this Charlie XCX track… groovy bass ensues.

Today’s Untz: Reaction / Air Zaïre

With the other half (indie/tory) having started a new job, the untz might be taking over. For what it’s worth I don’t even know what “untz” is. I like the lighter side of things over here on this blog whereas I tend to get a bit deeper over at The Trash Juice.

In keeping with that general direction, today we have the  beach’d out track, ‘Reaction’. I’m not sure how new to the scene Air Zaïre is, but welcome to the Moon Boots, Viceroy n’ crew party! #untz/tom

Today’s Untz: Flossy / Pherotone

Here’s a choice song for your summer playlist filled with Fergie samples. Pherotone is Eren Akkan, originally from Istanbul, Turkey.

Embracing all kinds of vibes, but if narrowed down to a few words, ‘soulful vocals, wide synths, claps, clicks, sea breeze, funk, disco, chords, loops, colors, scents and melodies that stimulate senses’. #untz/tom

Today’s Untz: Keep On Moving / AIMES

From AIMES:  “I made this track after my visit to Mazatlan this spring. I was inspired by the laid back vibe, the hospitality of my friends and the locals, and the tropical flavors. When I got back to New York spring was finally springing and I wanted to make a song that reflected the energy of the city and and my anticipation for summer.

If you dig it don’t forget to like, comment, and share!”

Make sure you go the grab the free download, turn it up, and reel in the good vibez

Today’s Untz: La La La (Pále Remix) / Naughty Boy

Here’s a blissful remix from London/Manchester’s Leo Marcus aka Pale. This is the kinda track that will have you floatin in the stars before you even know what’s happened. This is a track that will get plenty of person airplay, from long beautiful drives to a chill late night. What a discovery! #untz/tom

Today’s Untz: Pony (Viceroy  “Jet Life” Remix) / Ginuwine

Here is Viceroy’s official remix of “Pony” by Ginuwine. This is his 6th installment of his “Jet LIfe” remix series. It of course has the classic good weather feel.

I’m loving the instant reggae-ish beat accompanied by that island loving percussion. It’s tough to tell if that was recorded from live instruments, but regardless it sounds great and gives it an organic feel. Viceroy always seems to pick that perfect 90’s track to remix and this one is no different. Enjoy. #untz/tom

Today’s Untz: Crickets (Viceroy Remix) / Drop City Yacht Club

Jewels & Sapphires (Goldroom Remix) / Owl Eyes

What a wonderful day here in the city of San Francisco. It’s sunny and warm outside and we’ve been space blessed with releases from both Viceroy and Goldroom. And since they recently played here in the city together I figured I’d highlight both tracks.

Both are ripe for good weather and good times. Whether that’s on a sunny beach,  in a sunny park, or a decked out school bus chillin on the side of a San Francisco street. Enjoy! #tom
