Back in 2008, Mac Stanton started So French Records. Just last year, he (rightfully) earned heaps of Internet attention with his smash remix of “Lose Yourself to Dance.” Since then, he’s engineered incredible remixes of Danger, Kavinsky, Soul Machine, and the like. We here at C+A+D revel in french disco, therefore it was only natural for us to reach out. He blessed us with an exclusive mixtape. 11 tracks, 50 minutes of Mac Stanton’s unmistakable “ow ow ow.”

Cherokee can do no wrong. After releasing their brilliant original “Don’t Matter” just last month, the French duo show no signs of slowing down. This new stuff is fun, it’s fresh, it’s disco. Oscillating synths glide through the chromatic scale, transporting us to a far away galaxy of dance and rhythm. If you like a pu pu platter of house and disco, then get ready to chow down.

Pleasurekraft is the vanguard of the tech house scene; their dark twisted rhythms are infectious. Two years ago they won two Beatport awards for Top Track of the Year and Top Tech House Track for their catchy banger, “Tarantula.” Since then, the duo continued to crank out quality tunes with big support from artists like Green Velvet and Sneaky Sound System. Well Pleasurkraft is performing this Tuesday at Focus OC! If you like house music or think you like house music, you best be making your way over to OC’s nightclub pride & joy.

Following up his latest EP, ‘All My Life,’ Gigamesh is back with a new single that might just be his best work yet. The preview is modestly titled ‘Enjoy’ and is driven by those upbeat nu-disco synth stabs that we’ve come to love. If you’re not dancing, something’s wrong.

This is 26 days too late, but better late than never. Those of us who haven’t lived under a rock have clearly noted the impact of EDM, with DJs and producers moving en masse towards plastic feeling happy chords, radio-friendly vocals and generic “drops.” It may have been ubiquitous this year, but with producers such as Disclosure, Cyril Hahn, Snakehips and Maribou State keeping the quality standards high, I’m hardly complaining.

Trapstyle, in all of its over-hyped glory, continued to develop at a head-spinning rate thanks to the sheer restlessness of its key protagonists (Flosstradamus, Baauer, RL Grime and UZ). On the other hand, disco dug its platformed heels into all things shiny; from revivalist edits, to contemporary cuts and a newfound appreciation of the originals themselves (RIP Donna Summer). Thanks to Aeroplane, Breakbot, Cherokee and the like, it seems all was good under the disco ball.

So what musical movement is in store for 2013? Well, your guess is good as mine. What I can say with certainty, though, is that aside from electronic music’s lust for the latest trends, good music is good music. Hopefully this list proves it.

After the jump. (more…)
