Chicago’s @Autografmusic returns with @GianniKosta remixing the romantic “You Might Be” featuring @supLils

AUTOGRAF featuring LILS, “You Might Be” (Gianni Kosta remix)

“You Might Be” is the kind of dance record that immediately goes to the front of the line for attention.  It’s new from Chicago production trio Autograf through Warner’s Big Beat label, and featuring soaring singer Lils (formerly Lily Elise) in a lush official remix by France’s Gianni Kosta.  “You Might Be” is a bubbly, romantic, tightly-recorded song whose lovely wash of layered synths and dreamy vocal are a far cry from the non-descript pop EDM that pervades the radio today.  While it’s definitely love-at-first-listen for “You Might Be”, I’ll guarantee the more you play this one, the more it will sink in, and it will definitely create an uplifting presence on the dance floor.  It’s yours to check out at the link above.

“Heartbeat” by @Autografmusic gets a post-disco workout by @Cloudchord and @FrancisPreve

AUTOGRAF, “Heartbeat” (Cloudchord x Francis Preve remix) (free DL)

You never quite know what to expect when a new Cloudchord remix arrives, and this time he’s paired up with fellow Austin denizen Francis Preve, the noted wizard of synths and sounds as well as remixer of songs by Dragonette and Sander Kleinenberg, for a retooling of “Heartbeat” by Chicago trio Autograf.  In the best of worlds, all sub-sub-genres of dance music fuse and merge to become new sounds, and Cloudchord and Francis take us on a time trip where disco was evolving and a new wave of punk-inspired rock music and dance music was gelling.  Thus the remix of “Heartbeat” has numerous classic disco flourishes with late 70’s, early 80’s progressive, electronic synth sounds, which when combined with today’s technology and retro early 2000 house rhythms, vocals, and melodies doesn’t quite sound like anything else out there.  This remix of “Heartbeat” will definitely give club DJ’s pause for thought – how to make it stand out in a set with its engaging six minute length as it rightly should.  You can check out all the fuss I’m trying to say in so many words by clicking on the link above and downloading it for free 🙂
