Everybody Jump

Sep 30 2011

After releasing on Discobelle Records, Jamtech Foundation did the track “Everybody Jump” back in 2010 that caught the attention of superproducer RedOne, the man behind Lady Gagas success and arguably the most successful producer in the world at the moment. RedOne, who was introduced to Jamtech Foundation through mutual friends in the music industry, saw the potential in the duo. He quickly decided he wanted to sign them, as well as KMC, to his new imprint 2101 Records. With the deal finalized in early in 2011, the duo that started with a love for caribbean music and a wish to make people dance 15 years earlier now has the back-up that makes them impossible to ignore even for the most skeptic hater.

Here we got a taste for you with the new street mix of “Everybody Jump”.

Ah yes, it’s the weekend (again) and you’re probably contemplating about going out. While doing that, put on this tropical bass/baile funk/3Ball MTY mix by Berlin dj/producer and Man Recordings boss Daniel Haaksman. The mix will most likely get you so pumped up that by sunday you’ll wake up naked in the trunk of a car on the Icelandic countryside.

A-Trak brings forth an exquisite dub version of his remix for that new The Rapture single “How Deep Is Your Love?”, this is a slow but steady builder with squelchy, nasty synthwork and towards the end that’s when things really kick off.

“I did this remix over the summer, and when I was close to finishing it I played it to my friend, the irreplaceable DJ Mehdi. We often played each other our productions for feedback. As it turns out he and Riton were visiting New York so they stopped by my apartment. I was working on the main version of the remix, the vocal version. I knew I would make a few alternate edits during the mixdown. The funny thing was, Mehdi’s favorite part was the ending! He and Riton suggested that I have that part come in earlier. My reaction was: that would work well for the dub version. And sure enough, when I finished mixing it down I made a dub with their suggestion. When I sent it to Mehdi shortly after, he responded (as a joke) that I should call it “Dub For Mehdi”. He included it in his “Tunisian Summer” mix. And then, as we all know, the unimaginable happened and we lost our dear friend. The least I can do now is name the edit after him. This one’s for you, Memed.”

That’s two in a row here on Discobelle for Daniel Dexter, he’s keeping busy and there’s no shame about that seeing as the tracks are of such high quality. “No House For Old Men” is his upcoming single on Poker Flat Recordings and the title track sees him laying on thick layers of synths and drama to create a hypnotic stormer of a track, we do hope that there will be house music when we’re old men and that it’s as good as this.

Icona Pop is a Swedish shimmering, electronic pop duo that via single tracks such as “Manners” on labels Kitsuné and Neon Gold have spread like wildfire on dancefloors all over the world. New York by way of Turkey producer Deniz Kurtel is the reigning queen of deep, dark house and techno, her remix for Icona Pop feeds a slow beat, added vocals and a devilish bassline to the soft, angelic sounding original vocals.
