Hot Toddy is the solo moniker of Chris Todd. You may better know him for his work as a member of Crazy P (Crazy Penis). Chris has been writing music as Hot Toddy for as long as Crazy P(enis) has been around.

His new single on Eskimo Records features friend, Ron Basejam. “I Need Love” is a hypnotizing 100 bpm track, slowly working its magic on you with vocals, keys, and synths all perfectly spaced. There is also a remix from one of my all time favorites, Morgan Geist.

Hot Toddy
is putting together the final touches to his artist album for a 2010 release on Om.

In a glum 21st Century epoch of economic crisis, political unrest and nuclear menace, it is perhaps unsurprising that the style of music most feted for its pure, unadulterated sense of fun has crept its way, with a side-step shuffle and a double handclap, back onto dance-floors across the globe.

As melody replaces minimal as the buzz du jour, it is the dancing that once again takes centre stage leaving the uber-koolische backs slumped forlorn against the wall.

We are, of course, talking about D.I.S.C.O..

While some might argue that disco has never truly been away –hip-hop and house producers in particular have long plundered its resources to furnish their sample-laden oeuvre– surely the glitter-ball hasn’t shone as brightly over a scene since its infamous ‘demolition’ in 1979 as it has over the last two years.

Despite often being saddled with the annoyingly constricted ‘nu’ prefix, contemporary disco is a deceptively broad school encompassing a variety of quirky sub-genres. Whether your proverbial flavour is breezy balearica, irreverent italo or butt-shaking boogie, you can find it all down at the (nu) Discotheque.

In celebration of this musical renaissance we have profiled and interviewed some of disco’s brightest new stars. Clap-clap.

After becoming one of the most downloaded tracks ever on RCRDLBL.com, Colette drops the full single for “Think You Want It”. The first lady of Om (how many times has this phrased been used? ), enlists Pezzner, Sexual Chocolate, and Hanssen for remix duty.

Pezzner, busy working on his album for Freerange Records, gives us one of the stand out remixes on the single. Moody, deep, spacey, and heavily layered with cut-up vocals, claps, bass, and everything else we have come to love about Pezzner.

Sexual Chocolate delivers a Chicago fidget inspired version of the track that i’m sure you will hear in Colette’s DJ sets. Perhaps the most surprising remix is from Hanssen, who takes the track and Colette in a completely new direction!

Atjazz and long time vocalist Clyde, drop their new single “Please You”. The single is a laid back subtle dance floor track that really simmers and gets your feet moving, one foot at a time. It’s crazy how closely Clyde’s voice resembles Pharrel Williams of NERD. In fact, the track sounds like a spacey deep house version of a track that NERD would have made. Atjazz does what he does best, producing a simple but lush deep house dance track, while also producing a memorable “song”.

The single features a remix by Garcy Noise, and Om’s very own Rob G.

Drop this joint and watch the girls do the dance floor shuffle.

It’s been a month full of surprises (Read “GA Join Om”)! Ready for another one? We have a new single from Radio Slave!!!!!

No matter what sounds you profess to be your dance music of choice, chances are that at some point over the last five years, you will have gotten your rocks off to Matt Edwards AKA Radio Slave. In that time Matt has remixed countless tunes for an incredibly-wide selection of notable labels. To boot, his touring schedule must be almost painful. So it was with great pleasure that Om was able to enlist his talents to compose a tune especially for our 15 Year Anniversary compilation.

To cut straight to the chase, “Orchestrating Maneuvers In The Dark” is a rhythmic deep tribal techno groove – obscure, dissident and crunchy – with a breakdown that dissolves into thin air – only to strangely and magnificently re-materialize into his funk-induced groove.

The single comes compete with an amazing reinterpretation from Mike Monday (Om, Great Stuff, Simple), a super-deep mix from Seth Troxler (Ghostly International) + Ryan Crosson (Wolf + Lamb, Spectral, Crosstown Rebels, Trapez) and a clubbed up version from Om’s own Al Velilla. The digital package includes a mix from Frankfurt up-and-comer M.in, who teamed up with the legendary Patrick Lindsey to create a bumpin funky tech rework.

“Sounds great def something I would play!” – Pete Tong
“Super” – Tiefschwarz
“Great track! would love to play this out!” – Laurent Garnier
“Great remix!” – Luke Solomon
“Wow! what a suprise from om records and it’s good too! will support.” – Stacey Pullen
“Right up my alley, obscure, dissident and crunchy..nice one!” – Osunlade
“Love It” – The Scrumfrog


PRE-RELEASED EXCLUSIVELY TO BEATPORT.

The fall of the Berlin Wall marked its 20-year anniversary about a week ago. A year after the fall, Andre Lodemann, born in a small city in the GDR, picked up his first set of turntables.

Over the past nineteen years Lodemann has made a big name for himself in the Berlin music scene. This Om Podcast features some of his excellence, and given the context of Lodemann’s history, it’s really damn unique. If you’re pressed for time, listen to the first eight minutes of this minimally dark, sonically emotional awesomeness!

If you’re into those adjectives, then you’ll probably want to listen to the whole thing.

If you haven’t yet heard the new track from Amplive’s solo album, Murder at the Discotek, coming out next year, then step yo game up. For those who have been livin’ under a rock for the past month, check out the video for Gary is a Robot featuring Trackademicks and Mr. Micro. This little dittie has been blowing up on Al Gore’s interweb as of late, and for good reason. Beyond the pretty hilarious shots at Kanye and the auto-tune phase (which the track actually incorporates to great effect), Amp gives his usually perfect blend of unique beat patterns and catchy synth lines.

The running theme of auto-tune and those who follow that trend is widespread throughout the track. Trackademicks’ verse is all about being a leader not a follower in the game, and its clear that they view the current use of atuo-tune as a detriment to hip-hop as opposed to taking it to new heights like Kanye would like to believe .

The video itself is actually really creatively shot. Gary the robot is featured trying to find his place in the cool crowd, imitating the various trends he sees at parties and hip spots. From his trendy Kanye sunglasses to the BBC windbreaker, Gary steps his game up like a pro, illustrating the problems with hip-hop that Trackademicks and Mr. Micro allude to.

Be original. Don’t conform. Now, check out the video here .

Check out this funky DJ Platurn clip pitting Dennis Edwards & Siedah Garrett Vs. DJ Nu-Mark with “Imagine Not Looking Any Further.” This track takes Edwards’ and Garrett’s smooth vocals and matches it to DJ Nu-Mark’s instrumental take on the classic John Lennon song “Imagine” to create a fresh jam with something to offer everyone from Beatles enthusiasts to smooth jazz cats to r&b lovers. Plus, the video offers some unintentional comedy with Edwards old school jheri curl and Garrett’s sultry dance moves.

Enjoy it HERE.

One of the best live sets we saw this summer was by Los Angeles hip-hop duo People Under the Stairs, whose energy transformed a muddy Bonnaroo Day into a wild house party with jumping bass and MCs Thes One and Double K’s dope rhymes about — what else? — smoking weed and drinking booze!

The duo’s set drew a larger crowd than hot indie acts like Passion Pit and Janelle Monáe. But to most music fans, they remain an underground obscurity.

That’s beginning to change with their latest release, Carried Away. Download one of the album’s best tracks, “Step Off.” Check out the rest of this feature and get your free download at spin.com.

Funky, spacey, minimal, and continuous; this SPIRIT CATCHER mix is perfect for a Friday night chill out session. SO pour yourself a glass of wine, maybe a few glasses, get on the couch, if you have a couch, and just CHILL OUT. Let those subtle elements come together, build, and fall apart over and over again, until you feel good. The only thing is if you’re trying to keep yourself inside for the night, best avoid the last seven minutes, because it will surely inspire you to go out and live it up.

SPIRIT CATCHER is pretty notorious for insane sets (check their myspace) where they do a lot of live, musical processing. This mix, entitled “Missing Danger”, definitely captures a lot of their unique space flashes and funky undertones, but it’s a lot more relaxed than in your face, which is often times a good thing. Thanks for the mix SPIRIT CATCHER!
