Luxxury - Good Morning Disco

dj ShmeeJay‘s Ain’t No Big Thing radio show, live on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month from 8pm – 10pm (PST) / 11pm – 1am (EST) on BoxFrequency.fm, and with a podcast syndicated on iTunes.

This episode i host California based producer, deejay, rapscallion extraordinaire LUXXURY. LUXXURY  broke out in 2013 with the release of a series of unofficial remixes called “LUXXURY Edits” using only original multitrack stems for a number of famous songs including Eagles’ “Hotel California”, Duran Duran’s “Girl on Film”and many more. As a result of the attention he received (Wall Street Journal, LA Times, Vice etc.) he began to get commissioned remix work from artists such as Greg Wilson, Melanie Martinez and Fitz & The Tantrums. In 2016 LUXXURY released a series of original singles, appeared on NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly, and got support from outlets as Majestic Casual, Spin and Complex. LUXXURY has had more than 2 million streams on Spotify with over 200k average monthly listeners.

LUXXURY, fresh out with a new smooth yet dance-able magic hour-tinged love song, “I Need You”. Singer/Producer/Multi Instrumentalist Blake Robin explains: “It’s the most honest song I’ve ever written, indeed when I sing it live I blush from revealing myself in public so shamelessly. But frankly I’m a bit of an exhibitionist, so it all works out.” On keys once again is Robin’s frequent collaborator Billy Caruso, whose shimmering Rhodes line gives the otherwise upbeat dance song an aching, melancholy tone. Guest bassist Joe Karnes from Fitz and the Tantrums gives Robin’s original bassline a punch in the gut, elevating it to disco funk heaven.

And all of that for Ain’t No Big Thing,

Look for more of LUXXURY on SoundCloud, Facebook, Twitter, and Spotify.
