“Heartbeat” is breezy, summery emotional house from @officialAevion

AEVION, “Heartbeat”

“Heartbeat” is one of those fine summery house songs that you can blast from your car stereo while driving down the highway at night, or play at a beach party.  It’s got an emotional and affecting vocal from an uncredited female singer, and UK producer Aevion keeps the production and rhythm at an even keel, never overdoing things with effects in favour of free flowing enjoyment just under 4 minutes that goes by in a flash.  The noted quality of the Aftr:Hrs label is driving this one, so add “Heartbeat” to your “Breezy Summer” dance music playlist using the Spotify 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 🙂
