WS015: Steve Cook – Notice Me EP w/ remixes from Pop District and Aimes

Steve Cook - Notice Me

After a killer remix for FLXXX’s ‘Zombie Land’ on WS013, Steve Cook is back on Wonder Stories with his own EP. The lead track ‘Notice Me’ is a drugged-out mid-tempo burner with tribal drums and cut up diva vocals. Accompanying ‘Notice Me’ is a pair of remixes, one from Toronto-based producer Pop District, and another from Wonder Stories label head Aimes. Rounding out the EP is another Steve Cook original ‘Drifted’ which is eager to offer up the dark and brooding side of Steve’s productions.

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

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

Silver City – Loading EP

Julian Sanza + Fernando Pulichino make up the duo that is Silver City. They have been making balearic drenched disco since around 2002 and helped to define the genre with notable release on 2020 Vision and Under The Shade. Their soon to be released new EP ‘Loading’ stays true to their roots with a four track vinyl of vibey goodness. ‘Ride Away’ is the stand out track, one that gives chills and provokes thoughts of sunny afternoons driving along the coastline with the top down. Out soon on the Japanese label Catune. Available for pre order here.
