WS014: Aimes & Perdido Key – Hell Hole EP w/ rmxs from Pin Up Club and Magnus International

WS014 - Aimes & Perdido Key

WS014 – Aimes & Perdido Key

Wonder Stories boss man Aimes and frequent collaborators Perdido Key team up once again for a gritty and slightly off-kilter EP. Although right at home for Perdido Key, Hell Hole and La Pretora show a darker territory over Aimes’ usual polished disco sound. The stripped back tracks show an effort to do more with less, mostly featuring one bass synth, one lead synth, and drums. On remix duties we have Pin Up Club from Amsterdam and Norwegian ace Magnus International.

WS011: AIMES & James Rod – Touch / Journey To Jupiter

Wonder Stories mainstay AIMES links up with Spanish space disco don James Rod for a split EP of cosmic goodness. Each offering up an original track, plus a remix for the other, the EP’s common ground can be heard in the arp’d baselines and spacey synths.

WS010: Air Zaïre – Love 94

love94-Recovered1026

Brooklyn-based producer Air Zaïre is making his highly anticipated return following the 2014 release of “Sanibel ft. Patrick Baker.”

Featuring original vocals by newcomer Daniela Cabrera,”Love 94″ pays tribute to Air Zaïre’s favorite ’90s smooth jazz and soft rock radio station from his South Florida hometown.

Whereas the airy “Sanibel” focused on whisking away a love interest to a remote island, “Love 94” is a hopeful tropical anthem about second chances and winning back a lost love.

“Can’t let you turn around and walk away, baby”, sings Daniela before proclaiming, “Someday we could be together / But we’re alone tonight.”

Accompanying the release is a pair of club remixes from Mighty Mouse and AIMES, and a french touch reimagining by Douze.

Vocals recorded by Max Peterson. Mastered by Aman Ellis. Additional mixing by Michael Banks and Dan Diaz

Now Catune is back with a couple of very solid releases from ‘Flying Men’, which consists of Japan based UK Balearic power house Max Essa and Italian legends Leo Mas and Fabrice. The pair of 12″s are drenched in sunny Balearic vibes and with a touch of acid perfect for the dance floor. Stream below and don’t sleep on on Catune’s future releases.

For Wondercast 006 we invited our good friend and local Mazatlan veteran DJ Enrique Freyre to submit a mix that embodies the sound of his tropical home town of Mazatlan, Mexico. Enrique, also known affectionately as ‘El Doc’, has been a long time resident DJ at some of the best spots in Mazatlan. He also happens to make the best pizza in town (sorry La Mona).

Tronik Youth – Splinter of the Mind’s Eye

NEIN Records label boss Tronik Youth has just released a splendid new single entitled ‘Splinter of the Mind’s Eye’. NEIN Records is notorious for fronting the UK’s portion of the slo-mo acidic chug movement pioneered by the likes of Andrew Weatherall and Daniele Baldelli & DJ Rocca (to name just a couple) and the release stays true to these roots. The original is a chugging dark-disco slow burner with hints of electro and acid and is complemented by a slew of similar but different, and totally outstanding, remixes by Dark Strands, Los Lopez, Two Mammarrachos,  and Peza. Out now, have a listen below or snag it off iTunes here.

WS007: AIMES – Harmonique Cosmique EP

For the first official release of 2015 Wonder Stories is excited to present AIMES‘ Harmonique Cosmique EP. Designed as a somewhat concept EP, it includes four versions for four types of dance floors. The ‘Disco Version’ is a feel good nu disco romper with hints of italo and classic disco, meant for an early in the night fun and funky dance floor. As the night grows longer, the ‘Late Night Version’ cranks things up a notch, channeling 80s ‘out run’ vibes with dark and sinister sentiment, while the ‘AM Version’ is an adventurous peak time techno cut. To round out the EP we have the ‘Beach Version’, perfect for the laid back sunset (or sunrise) set, meant to be played while sipping a drink with an umbrella in it.

To say thanks for listening we wanted to give away a little something so enjoy the Disco version for free and you can grab the rest of the EP here: tinyurl.com/obcxuub
