The newest band to be signed to Future Classic is a solo project from Sydney, Australia’s Jarrah McCleary, also known as Panama! As proven earlier this year by Midnight Magic’s EP release (and its related amazing Holy Ghost remix), anything those New York funk-disco masters get their hands on gets a throwback treatment of the best and most sticky variety. The O.G. version is a bit less sensual, a bit more tropical, equally danceable. Remix single is available for purchase HERE, including these two tracks as well as a remix by Gavin Russom of LCD Soundsystem and The Crystal Ark.

The highly emphatic collaboration between Ohio’s Way Yes with Larry Gus takes the duo’s tropical vibes under his Midwest wings and turns them into… boiling water, lava forests, and video game whimsy. Their latest record, Walkability (which features a creepy crippled merman or something on the cover) is out now on Lefse Records.

Oh, I dunno. Any reason to post Usher’s “Climax” is cool. I can’t argue that this club version is better than the original, as few things have the luxurious tension and subtlety of the original, but this is remix is worth checking out nonetheless. Paper Diamond also gets mega official points for remixing this, since he is on Diplo’s label, Mad Decent. I’m quite sure he was checked and double-checked, so if that means anything…
