Lots of groovy electronic deliciousness that will keep your house parties going non-stop!

     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Take the gayest song ever and sample it and make a fun upbeat electro disco recording of it utilizing elements of The Weather Girls Paul Jabara written hit song It’s Raining Men and you have a fun track! That’s exactly what Beatfanatic did with Goin Out. It’s from his album Beat A Part which is chock full of electro disco cuts with a heavy 80s influence. My delicious cup of tea. LOL! I love it and have been exploring more and more of Beatfanatics music lately. Beatfanatic’s music is sample heavy as most of his recordings have one hit 80s disco song or another 70s disco cut. This is a true genius producing music from existing cuts.

    Albums by Beatfanatic to note include:

    Soundscapes (21 Deep Cuts)
    Beat A Part
    Vinyl Junkie Culture
    I Love It EP
    Robots EP

    So go check these absolutely groovy disco delish albums by Beatfanatic out now and get groovin’!

  3. Top Ten Best Dance & Electronic Songs June 2011


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I love doing these great Top Ten Best Dance And Electronic Songs lists so I will continue doing at least one a month going forward. I make sure I select the tracks I’m listening to most each month. This one starts out a bit sleazy with Midfield General doing Disco Sirens then ends a bit poppy with Benny Benassi featuring Gary Go with Cinema. I so love Cinema and there are countless awesome remixes of that song. Many many to choose from but I’m favoring the original for some reason as that’s my taste at the moment. Who knows you might pick the Laidback Luke or Alex Gaudino Remix. Oh there are many others too. The Things by Sharam Jey featuring Tommie Sunshine is another poppier club, house, dance electronic track that I’m enjoying currently. And it has many remixes to choose from as well. The original is excellent but the Junior Sanchez remix rocks too! If you like your beats a bit obnoxious then you will dig Teki Latex. This thing is pretty out there but I dig it. Be sure to check out several different remixes of this cut as well as each one is different than the other.

    1. Disco Sirens (Boy 8 Bit Vocal Remix) by Midfield General
    2. The Things (Junior Sanchez Remix) by Sharam Jey Featuring Tommie Sunshine
    3. Stay The Same (Etienne De Crecy Remix) by The Shoes

  5. Top 10 Best Munk Songs Ever!!!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    One of my favorite acts for about 10 years now, Munk has been creating some of the best dance and electronic music around. His music is mostly disco and electro with touches of house and other cool hip subgenres in the dance world all rolled into some of the best music around. I’ve been following his releases since I first head Androgyn back in 2002 then I was hooked. Later discovering and heard first Disco Clown (Midnight Mike Remix) and later Ce Kul (Francisco Remix) and finally I was really hooked and anticipated more and more releases from one of the best electronic and dance producers out there ever! I’m glad that he doesn’t tire and move on but he produces countless excellent releases and most are excellent. Because of this I had to compile a top ten list of my favorite releases from Munk. Mostly also because his new album The Bird and The Beat has come out recently and more and more releases with countless remixes get released and are definitely worth checking out. Munk is it now!

    What I like most about Munk is because most of his tracks have the retro disco flavor that I love. It’s totally Nu Disco! He doesn’t shy away from that sound but it’s totally now though so you are not going to get Gloria Gaynor or Village People sound here so it’s what’s hip and cool. His releases have a very Euro sound and that’s another reason that I tend to but it’s not cheesy stuff it’s definitely good underground dance and electronic music. If you have not heard of Munk then it’s time you discovered his sound. Check it out below! You will love the tunes!

  6. Aufstand by Gesaffelstein


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Aufstand by Gesaffelstein kicks ass!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the kind of music that you want force feed your everyday average joe that listens to cuntry, rock, pop, music that is overly mass produced shit by the majors.

    I just can’t stop listening to this all techno monster of a recording Aufstand by Gesaffelstein. It’s deep, dark, hard, eerie, sleazy and long mix of beats that takes you on a journey through long tunnels at fast speeds. And it goes on for 8 long minutes. It’s the best techno recording I have heard of since, ah the mid 90s? It’s got to be. Aufstand by Gesaffelstein takes me back to the early 90s when techno was just making a big impact on dance music with recordings by Underworld and those types of guys but this sounds just much more fresh and sonically high quality. The early 90s techno recordings had such a lo-fi quality to them but this track Aufstand by Gessaffelstein and the rest of his tracks on the Conspiracy, Pt. 1 – Single are all top notch. If you like Underworlds Second Toughest In The Infants CD with tracks like Rowla or Juanita/Kiteless/To Dream Of Love or even Dark + Long by Underworld then you will love Gesaffestein and then some. With techno music this good I can’t wait until I hear something new from Gesaffelstein!

    More Gesaffelstein tracks (and remixes he’s done) that are worthy to check out are also listed below. Check out Errance / Crainte EP by Gesaffelstein & The Hacker. I love The Hacker and think this EP is quite nice too.

    Original Music Releases:

    Conspiracy, Pt. 1 – Single by Gesaffelstein

  8. Star 69 (Thomas Gold Remix) by Fatboy Slim


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    New remixes of old dance and electronic tracks are my cup of tea! And when I heard about this new remix of Star 69 by Fatboy Slim I was first in line to check it out and I have to say it’s pretty darn good. Love the long breakdowns and big ass beats withe the lyrics that we have come to love from the original Star 69 track! What The Fuck! This new remix came out last year for the 10th anniversary of the original release of Star 69 and was originally on the Fatboy Slim album Halfway Between The Gutter And The Stars. Timo Maas had had remixed Star 69 in 2000 as part of the single along with DJ Gotfather and X-Press 2 and I think this new Thomas Gold Remix is just as good if not better. The Timo Maas remix still hold up today and is worth checking out. This new remix is certainly in the style of what’s being played in the clubs today and it’s a fusion of house and electro beats. I

    I’m sure this one of those cuts that is definitely one that is definitely on heavy rotation. More updated Fatboy Slim remixes please?

  9. Taste So Good by File 13


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    File 13′s Tastes So Good was one of my favorite electro electronic freestyle dance tracks from the mid 80s. This track has phone sex samples from those naughty 976 sex lines in the 80s. This song if you haven’t heard it is a pretty rare cut that’s in my top 100 dance tracks of all time. It’s totally original and i used to hear this on the radio here in the San Francisco Bay Area on Live 105. No one does music like this at least I have not heard anything. No albums or any singles exist of any File 13 material anywhere. Most likely they are all on 12″ used shops but either way this song is certainly worth noting here at DestroyRockAndRoll.com in case those of you don’t know it it’s certainly worth discovering.

    If you are looking for more music like File 13s Taste So Good then you definitely have to check out Street Jams Volumes 1 – 3 as they are chock full of electro and freestyle classic dance music. Unfortunately they are not available as a download from iTunes or Amazon but links to Amazon for the actual CDs are below.

  10. Way Back Home (Club Version Featuring Duane Harden) by Bag Raiders


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I first heard the Bag Raiders Way Back Home track just a couple of weeks ago but it wasn’t the original version sung by the band members that I heard it was the club version with Duane Harden. I immediately fell in love with it and had to check out more versions. I had known about Bag Raiders but after I heard Way Back Home I came to love Bag Raiders more. The original version of Way Back Home is very reminiscent of gothic sounding synth pop from the 80s it totally reminds of a song from that era. The Duane Harden version is upbeat, bouncy and reminds of piano house from the mid 90s! It’s awesome!

    Those of you that don’t know Duane Harden well if you know this little song that dates back to 1998 called U Don’t Know Me by Armand Van Helden featuring Duane Harden then you’ll know Duane Harden. He’s done countless other songs since then, mostly house, deep house and soulful house but this collaboration with Bag Raiders is one of the most unique things he’s done to date in my opinion. I love it!

    And the track listing for the Bag Raiders self titled album is as follows. Loads of tasty new wavy synth pop and dance treats that are seriouisly worth owning if you are at all into bands like Empire Of The Sun or Cut Copy and the like then you will certainly love these songs. Preview each track below and make sure you check out Shooting Stars as it’s one of my faves next to Way Back Home! There are some really cool remixes of Shooting Stars that should be noted as well.

    1. “Castles in the Air”
    2. “Sunlight”
    3. “Shooting Stars”
    4. “So Demanding”
    5. “Gone Away”
    6. “Prelude”
    7. “Not Over”
    8. “Snake Charmer”
    9. “Always”
    10. “Golden Wings”
    11. “Way Back Home”
    12. “Heartbeat”

  12. Hot Room (Tiga Remix) by Linda Lamb


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is quite the interesting electro track for me. It kind of sounds like this long lost country song or an Asian singer singing a country song with an electronic production. It’s unique in a strange way and I didn’t really get it or let alone like it until I heard of the excellent Tiga remix. This song was released in 2002 from the oh so cool label International Deejay Gigolo’s along with their legendary complilations, International Deejay Gigolos Compilation 5 and it’s countless cool electroclash tracks. I like the Tiga remix because he basically amps up the electronic production to a nice midtempo beat. It’s something you can actually dance to now whereas the original was a bit odd. Whatcha think? The original version of Hot Room came out at the height of the electroclash movement which is now almost 10 years old. Boy time sure flys by!

    If you’re not familiar with Linda Lamb check out some of her work with one of my favorite acts, Vitalic on a track called Bells. This is the Linda Lamb I really love. Right? It’s darn rocking cool!

  13. Wherever We Are (Grum Remix) by Human Life


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I’ve been listening to a lot of 80s inspired or influenced electronic, pop, dance, synth influenced music lately and Human Life’s Wherever We Are are one of the acts that I’ve been listening to quite a bit. This feel good, happy song from the Los Angeles based act Human Life is just that and more especially if you check out all of the fun remixes of this hit song Wherever We Are. The band takes their influences heavily from catchy 80s music of the synth pop bands that were aplenty then. They then throw in stabs of early chicago house music and an added French electro inspired sound to create their own original sunshiney very LA feel to the music. I’m digging this and I can only wait to hear more from Human Life.

    My favorite remix is the Grum remix which is below. Check it out and check out the other remixes as well as they certainly are worth it and the original is still darn good for more poppier feel and sound. If you can also get your hands on Italo Crimewave you should!

  15. Crystalised (Rory Phillips Remix) by The XX


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is a good example of a very bland boring alternative rock song that has been given LIFE by a really cool remix treatment by Rory Phillips! I’m so glad that the band The XX commissioned this remix by Rory Phillips as I really did not like the original.  There’s hardly any music on the original version of this song except for the bland singing. Ok the music does kick in a bit halfway through but then it fizzles out again. Sorry guys it’s needing something and luckily this Rory Phillips remix does wonders to it. The remix has a synthy, bouncy disco beat added to the very flat singing by the two members of The XX which actually compliment together quite well. Up until I heard this remix that I started liking the original version of  Crystalised. I can always say that remixes do what videos did to me when music videos were popular. Remixes turn me on to music that normally I wouldn’t listen to. Now I’m a fan of The XX like everyone else! Check out both original and remixed version below.

    Taking old recordings and sampling and remixing them is what http://www.DestroyRockAndRoll.com is all about and Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP’s remake/remix and sampling job of the classic Renato Carosone track Tu Vuo Fa L’americano for We No Speak Americano is a fine example of that. Yolanda Be Cool are the Australian act that have sampled this classic Italian easy listening/jazz into a upbeat electro-swing/swing-house hit. It’s fun, playful and very lively. This remake definitely keeps in the tradition of electro swing hits making big waves across the globe except here in the states. What’s going on?

    A couple of years ago I heard this awesome compilations called Swing Style and Renato Carosone’s track Tu Vuo Fa L’americano was featured on it including other older swinging jazz cuts as well as the new wave of electro-swing artists like Waldeck, Parov Stelar and more making hit underground dance tracks. Was really nice and was also very nice to get this amazing remake by Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP doing We No Speak Americano. Check out both the original by Renato Carosone and The Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP versions below.

  18. Sunglasses At Night (Alter Ego Remix) by Tiga & Zyntherius


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Corey Hart’s Sunglasses At Night is the perfect pop song to be featured in shows like Miami Vice or games like the GTA – Vice City. It’s the perfect synth pop song bordering on cheesyness with a very pastel Miami or LA coolness to it. It’s classic! Well it was perfectly reproduced or remade here by Tiga & Zyntherius. First released in 2002 then remixed and rereleased last year with tons of great new versions or remixes of the Tiga & Zyntherius version of the Corey Hart classic 80s song Sunglasses At Night.

    Tiga put himself on the map with the first release of Sunglasses At Night back in 2002. He was part of that electroclash movement and still continues to produce nice electro/dance music that I still listen to and occasionally remixing someone like Cabaret Voltaire or Miike Snow. The second half, Zyntherius is actually Jori Hulkkonen who’s music I also love too. So this combo of the two of them made for a nice collab and release of the Corey Hart classic synth pop track back in 2002. It was so good I suppose it deserved an extra round of remixes 8 years later. The first release included one great remix Naughty’s 42 Da Floor Remix which was nice and of course the original is great.

    Last year the remixes were by Alter Ego, DIM, Black Devil Disco Club, Popof and Konrad Black. A great package with pretty nice lengthy remixes of the Tiga & Zyntherius version of Sunglasses At Night. Below is the entire list and worth checking out as there are some really nice remixes from really cool acts. Check them out below!

  19. Just What I Needed by W.I.T. (Whatever It Takes)


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Just What I Needed is the classic 80s song by the band The Cars! This is a fun remake by the all girl group Whatever It Takes – W.I. T. The Larry Tee produced electro synth pop group’s first single release Ooh I Like It was a fun cut similar in style and sound to 80s acts like The Flirts, Stacey Q and even acts like Company B and the like. Later when their album came out I discovered the fun little remake of Just What I Needed. This music is bubblegum, cute and very pop inflected sound. I think Larry Tee was very influenced by those types of bands and sounds to produce a fun album.

    The band is no longer now but this sound is still now so go check out the cuts by Whatever It Takes. In addition to The Cars cover Just What I Needed and Ooh, I Like It . Then there’s an Arthur Baker remixed cut Hold Me, Touch Me (with even a Blackstrobe Remix out there somewhere), I Surrender and finally their theme song Whatever It Takes. Overall a great fun poppy album worth hearing and owning for sure. The softer poppier side of Glass Candy, Ladytron and Adult!

  20. General Motors, Detroit, America (Blackstrobe Remix) by Acid Washed


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I first heard General Motors, Detroit, America early last year and I fell in love with it. It kind of sounds like the soundtrack music to either an 80s Sci-Fi film or maybe even a mysterious documentary from that era. It’s cool. It’s perfect synth electronic with very 80s touches thrown in there. It truly has a very soundtrack feel to it. I can see it perfectly in Tron or something like that.

    Well I love the Blackstrobe remix even more. The original is more mellow sort of a downtempo thing but Blackstrobe have made it more clubby and bouncy but still keeping the mysteriousness. This release is off of the Acid Washed (love their name btw) album by the same name. If you are at all into synthy 80s inspired electro and electronic music then this album will satisfy you completely. I love it! It’s mostly all instrumental cuts and very bouncy fun music. The release is from Record Makers one of my favorite labels out of France! Home to folks like Sebastien Tellier, Kavinsky and more.

  21. Let’s Go Together (Grum Remix) by Gamble & Burke


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I like all things 80s sounding and all things Kitsune! This Gamble & Burke song Let’s Go Together remixed by Grum is all that and more! This has been out since summer last year and I’ve been enjoying the soulful robotic vocals, the 80s synth pop dance beats very much but it’s the remix by Grum that I’m really digging here. The original is a bit more minimal (not too much depth in the music) compared to the Grum remix with the fatter beats. Grum again does the great remix job here and I have to say the more I hear Grum the more I love his sound. The Scottish musician not only produces his own awesome music with a full album release but does some excellent remixes of other musicians.

    Gamble from Gamble & Burke was previously one half of the fun pop dance act The Cooler Kids. They had a minor hit called All Around The World back in 2003 but this is his new gig. I hope to hear more releases from Gamble & Burke in the near future and since this is going on one year I think maybe more is going to come from the duo? I hope!

  22. Permanent Vacation (Selected Label Works No 2)

    Permanent Vacation (Selected Label Works No 2) is one of the coolest compilations to end up in my iTunes music library ever! I can’t stop listening to this awesome nu disco, deep house, electronic music compilation as every single track is top notch. So it’s on heavy rotation now for 4 or so months. Loads of great acts are included on this compilation including several remixes of Beam Me Up by Midnight Magic, several cuts from Tensnake, Azari & III, Sally Shapiro remixed by Bottin, Lexx, Pollyester, Woofy vs Projectsions and the track track that I keep coming back to Prism by Spectacle with a link below. Prism by Spectacle is one of those moody, very deep deep house (with a slight nu disco touch) tracks that you get addicted to and keep clicking to repeat. In other words it’s quite sexy!

    Check it out at the link below and check out the rest of the Permanent Vacation (Selected Label Works No 2) tracks here. You wont be disappointed by them! Produced by Muallem which some of you might have heard of but if you haven’t check out Shanti Dance (Featuring The Droids) by Muallem. Very funky, groovy electro disco. Love that cut!

  23. Through The Night (The Swiss Menergy Remix) by Grum


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    The Swiss Menergy Remix? Are they hinting at Patrick Cowley? Sounds like! The remix to Through The Night with the really funny video is definitely an homage to the 80s high energy disco sound that Patrick Cowley was known for. His trademark sound has been updated and remixed Through The Night the cool 80s flavored artist Grum by The Swiss. It’s definitely a winning remix. Patrick Cowley was known for working and producing folks like Sylvester and DJing at legendary gay clubs in San Francisco and one listen to The Swiss Menergy Remix of Through The Night will take you back to the 80s clubs. It’s such a great combo here Grum who I’m totally digging lately and The Swiss with Bubble Bath fame are a winning combo. There are certainly several other remixes in the Through The Night remix package but The Swiss Menergy Remix is the one remix that gets my vote! Although the Bit Funk Remix is quite cool too. Through the Night is off of the Grum album Heartbeats. Check out Menergy too from Patrick Cowley below. All recommended.

  24. Animal (DJ’s From Mars Extended Remix) by Neon Trees


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I’m sure you’ve heard of this song Animal by Neon Trees from somewhere already as it’s been everywhere but have you heard of this remix by DJ’s From Mars? It’s even better than the original I kid you not. Screw the guitar and take the upbeat energetic electro club beats. Ok just kidding the original is good but you know me I love my remixed music!

    I don’t know who DJ’s From Mars are but they sure did a great job remixing this cut and it’s certainly ready for the clubs. The original is from the Neon Trees Habits CD but no official remix package is available anywhere so not sure why? Found this remix on a compilation that was sent and I figured it was worth putting up. You like?

  25. Liberating Soul (FM Attack remix) by Tesla Boy


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Tesla Boy is your favorite new 80s band from today! Their music sounds like it comes from the 80s but with very modern production values you know made for today. If you are at all into anything 80s inspired including synth pop dance, italo-disco, 80s disco dance then Tesla Boy is your ticket to great new music discovery! Even their name is very 80s sounding! Remember the song Tesla Girls by OMD? Ok I wont mention the hideous 80s metal band Tesla (oops I just did) but you get the point!

    The Tesla Boy album Modern Thrills kicks the 80s sound right off with an excellent synth classic song called Electric Lady. Then it gets better and better with cuts like Synthetic Prince, Minsk-2, Dark Street, Fire and Thinking Of You so I highly recommend you check Modern Thrills out. Liberating Soul is the first single off of Tesla Boy’s Modern Thrills album. It’s fun synth, pop classicness! Great 80s sounding vocals even.I can’t pinpoint which 80s synth pop band they sound like but they really do. Maybe you know? The remix for Liberating Soul by FM Attack adds a certain, laidback spaceyness to it with the trademark spacey FM Attack sound. Being a big fan of FM Attack I always seek out new remixes they do. I especially love the remix they did for the Edwin Van Cleef song Overtaken. If you haven’t heard of it check it out here.
