Coucheron - UFO

Norway's Coucheron has become a favourite of mine after seeing him open for Chet Porter and Lemaitre, nearly a year ago. At that time he was gearing up to release "Loud" and "Puzzled," and since then has added his unique brand of bouncy future pop funk to Kehlani's "Undercover." Today he returns with a brand new original called "UFO." It took me approximately 15 seconds to be beamed up by the brilliance of the otherworldly awesomeness. Like his previous productions it oozes with a funk appeal, while finding itself firmly in the future. I'm reminded of Datarock's post punk propensity, which just a touch of Chromeo/Oliver-esque disco groove. It's the kind of killer electronic creativity that I crave, and I find so astonishingly absent in the ultra sterile future bass we're getting at the moment. "UFO" is a nonstop thrill-ride through the stars, and a delightful diversion from the doldrums of meh mainstream music. Climb aboard the spacecraft via Spotify or iTunes, and be sure to follow Coucheron below.FOLLOW COUCHERON: FACEBOOK SOUNDCLOUD TWITTER

DAF - Als Wär's Das Letzte Mal (Boys Noize Remix)

Growing up Rammstein were perhaps my most played band, in spite of essentially zero understanding of the German language. Maybe that's why I love the way the vocals of DAF's "Als Wär Das Letzte Mal" sound. Or maybe it's the fact that Boys Noize is the man behind the mix in question. The song, which roughly translates to "As If It Were The Last Time," is German techno at its best, as Boys Noize takes the dark electro/industrial vibes and amps them up with throbbing bass amidst DAF's aggro guitar riffs. The groove is as strong as it is steady, allowing for easy and efficient dancing. Boys Noize always commands crowds and it's easy to see why with this masterful mix. But perhaps you don't want to go out, if so, you could use it as the perfect soundtrack for the new Wolfenstein. Enjoy!FOLLOW BOYS NOIZE: FACEBOOK SOUNDCLOUD TWITTER
