SUNDAY, March 3, 2013 | M.I.A. – “Matangi Mix for Kenzo”
There’s nothing like a smashing Bollywood soundtrack for your fashion show. With “Matangi”, our favorite Tamil-British artist Mathangi ‘M.I.A.‘ Arulpragasam delivered a slamming, nine minute long mini-mix for fashion outlet Kenzo’s Fall 2013 show at Paris Fashion Week. Get ready for a wild ride through exotic terrain.
MONDAY, March 4, 2013 | Cubenx – “Francouer”
I had the pleasure of meeting Mexican producer César Urbina aka Cubenx in 2011—a lovely fella! The Infiné-signed artist is currently working on new material, and his new, dreamy, Montmartre-inspired house track “Francouer” was just the right thing to ease us into the new week.
TUESDAY, March 5, 2013 | Sinkane – “Warm Spell” (Barker & Baumecker Alt2 Remix)
Ostgut Ton artist and Berghain/Panorama Bar resident ND_Baumecker has a knack for pop music, both when it comes to his late DJ sets at Pannebar and when he’s (re)working other people’s music. His joint remix with fellow musician Sam Barker for DFA’s Sinkane is one of those pop-meets-techno-meets-epic-choral-elements moments which gives you goosebumps.
WEDNESDAY, March 6, 2013 | Rustie – “Slasherr”
A new single from one of 2011’s most profiled future bass producers. Just imagine yourself inside a packed club, wait for the (*ahem*) ‘drop’ at 0:52, and think of everyone going wild. We need to catch up with this guy live sometime soon!
THURSDAY, March 7, 2013 | Vladislav Delay – “Lumi” (Edit 2013)
Originally published on his Whistleblower album in 2007, this new, fragile, and intimate edit of “Lumi” is the perfect musical antithesis to the rest of this week’s favorites.
FRIDAY, March 8, 2013 | Justin Timberlake – “Suit & Tie” (Four Tet Remix)
Haters gonna hate! FutureSex/LoveSounds (2006) was one of my favorite contemporary pop albums, and I’m not ashamed of admitting that Four Tet’s new JT rework works perfectly fine for me.
SATURDAY, March 9, 2013 | Chateau Marmont – “The Maze” (Chrome Canyon Remix)
Balearic disco alarm! Don’t listen if you dislike cheesy synths and big pop moments. Still, deal with this: there’s nothing better on a cold winter day like this than imagining yourself on a beach reclining in a deckchair while having a drink out of a coconut.

We have to hand it to Kenzo: they certainly have good taste. If we were soundtracking our latest fashion line (hypothesis only, don’t get excited) Nguzunguzu would easily be on our short list. The fashion label enlisted the LA duo to create a soundtrack big enough for the five-level Université Pierre et Marie Curie, where their latest Fall/Winter 2012 line would be showcased. Nguz know big, and they delivered with a nine-track mix comprised of tracks both old and new. We’ve been skipping back and forth on ‘Dolly HA’ for about an hour now and we’ll probably be coming back to it for the rest of the day. Style for days on this one.
