I'm an F-18, Bro

I've said it before and I'll say it again; I love RAC. They are wizards when it comes to remixing. They choose such subtle and cohesive instrumentation and they keep the integrity of the song while still drastically improving upon it. Roughly three years ago, RAC released a remix album called RAC VOL 1 that was critically acclaimed and really laid the groundwork for this awesome collective. Today, March 4th, they have finally released their second volume on their website and it's FREE. Below are two tracks that I've been abusing over the past week ever since I heard them, but if you fancy yourself a music enthusiast, you should just hop on over to their website and download the entire album in a nice little .zip file (or just click here).
Suckers - Black Sheep (RAC Remix)

Washed Out - New Theory (RAC Remix)

Dance Ritual was founded in 1998 by two of dance music's most respected artists, Louie Vega and Joe Claussell. The two wanted to create a party without musical boundaries, where African, Jazz, Latin, Soul, Gospel, R&B, and Brazilian sounds would blend through house forms. Vega is unquestionably a major force in house music, both as a producer and DJ, and Dance Ritual is his cultural and spiritual home. Without further adieu, here are a couple tracks I've been fiending over lately.
Black Coffee feat. Hugh Masekela - We Are One (Dance Ritual Mix)

Hardrive: 2000 feat. Lynae - Never Forget (When You Touch Me) (Dance Ritual Mix)

I recently found out that Tepr plans on releasing one track at the beginning of each upcoming month on his website ( This month's track is definitely club ready. A bit on the deeper side, but with those standard Tepr floating synth lines that really create a dancing atmosphere in pretty much any setting. Enjoy this in all its free glory.
Tepr - Rigolease

Now, Quinten 909 uploaded this track to his soundcloud 1 month ago, but just recently decided to make it available for download out of the kindness in his own heart. French/Disco House master does it again. Repetitive but insatiably pleasing to the ears, You're My Friend will undoubtedly soothe your troubled brain.

Brand new Classixx original guys. It sort of sounds like it's in the same vein as the Ghost Busters theme song... pure 80's cheese, from the funky bass line to the nostalgic synth guitar chord stabs. These lyrics... I'm beginning to think this is actually an 80's song. Anyways, here.
Classixx - Fortunate Star

Now this one is from 2007, but I recently began listening to it and I have to say... I wish more music was made like this. SebastiAn is an Ed Banger GOD and he needs to release more music for me to froth over. This crunchy kick drum and the grimey bass synth... yum yum yum.
The Rakes - We Danced Together (SebastiAn Remix)


Just wait for the vocals to kick in on this beautiful track


Love, Patrick
