Introducing: Oliver (U-Tern and Oligee)

You may separately know the names Vaughn “U-Tern” Oliver and Oliver “Oligee” Goldstein, but now you can associate them with one duo-riffic title, simply known as Oliver. Minimalism in names at its finest, and musicality at it's even finer-est.

 

Oliver

 

Follow 'em on twitter @weareoliver, grab their original tracks, All Night (below) and Walk WIth Me (here), or their remix of Don Diablo and Dragonette's Animale.

 

Each of those options come highly Beaston approved!

Don Diablo (featuring Dragonette) - Animale (new single, video and remix!)

Honest to goshness, Don Diablo was a big player in Beastonia about two solid years ago...and maybe it was me just getting my blog legs underneath me and getting excited that someone actually wanted to debut material with me...in which case he kind of fell off my radar, cause well, shit started sounding generic. But he gots the remedy to that now, because he wisely teamed up with hot Canadian trio, Dragonette, for his new single, Animale, and all prior missteps be never spoken of again, cause this is super hot. So let's pretend this is the first we've ever heard of the DJ/producer, and "OMG y'all, what an amazing debut!" Jokes aside, here we go...

 

Animale

 

For the line "stamp your hind legs, get behind me..." alone, this song is certifiably Beaston-approved. Also, the entire arrangement and lyrical content is pure pop bonkers and enjoyable in the same breath.

 

Video for the song is out now, it makes no sense, but it gives you another chance to listen to the tune. I think it's something to do with ravecave kids making out and tripping out on orange slices, kind of like a bad peewee soccer game at halftime, yeah? Whatever. Datsik's remix is yours to gobble up wit yo animal fangs too.

 

If you're in the Netherlands, buy the single officially on iTunes.

Martin Solveig (featuring Dragonette) - Hello (Dada Life Remix)

Mind bending face melter. And I needn't say much more.

 

Hello

 

Martin Solveig once again hooks up with Dragonette for the song, Hello, (the first being Boys & Girls last year) and sure enough, the results are aces. Like tennis, see...puns!

 

With a handful of big namers coming in on the remix tip, it's Dada Life who's hoisting the trophy here at center court in Beastonia, but if you want to hear the others, hit the following links to 'ear 'em all.

Dragonette - My Things (new song!)

UMM...THIS IS THE ONE I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR! Yes, the caps are most necessary, because ever since having heard Dragonette perform the previously titled Get Your Titties Off My Things well over a year ago in its most fledgling-demo form, it's been the effort of theirs that I've been most eagerly anticipating to give my ears a chance to dance to. Now, with a new, and more kid-friendly title, My Things is here, and it's pretty much perfect.

Last month, we writ all about the band's new double single, Our Summer Volcano, which pairs the two new tracks Our Summer and Volcano. With that seeing a release last week, just 2 days ago, they also released a bonus disc, Mixin' to Thrill, which compiled a number of the best remixes from latest official disc, Fixin' to Thrill. Included on said spinner, is My Things, in all it's fantastic fashion of fuel-riffing fire and suggestive lyrics.

 

You can buy Mixin' to Thrill here...and after that you can get all sorts of overheated with the song I've literally been dreaming about having for months and months. 

 

It's a great day. MY things approve...

Dragonette - Volcano (new EP out today!)

Quick hit from our buddies, Dragonette. Their new EP, Our Summer Volcano, is out today, and I highly suggest you go grab it here, because the double A-side single fun fest is sure to push all your pop buttons. After dosing you with the first single, Our Summer, for free last week, it's only fitting to stream you with the second half of awesomeness.

 

And you can listen to Volcano below! Synth strings and disco hand-claps; I'm in love.

Kaskade (featuring Dragonette) - Fire In Your New Shoes (new video!)

Ok, this is hot. And a great way to get your weekend started...hopefully with a fire in a pair of your very best dancing shoes! Having already swooned over the Kaskade and Dragonette collaboration, Fire In Your New Shoes, there's some added weak in the knees-edness with the debut of the video for said song.

Predominantly featuring Martina of the Canadian band, Kaskade teases behind the lens while a series of events unravel and re-ravel. 


Super sexy!

Dragonette - Our Summer (new single!)

Color me most excited! My pals, Tina, Dan and Joel, aka Dragonette, are right on time with a new song, fittingly dubbed Our Summer. The digital single will be released on July 27, with the flip-side, Volcano. Additionally, there's a ton of news coming out of Camp Drago, so on we roll with the radness!

First through the gate, if you like what you hear (the single is free for you to snag below), and you think you can mix it up even sweeter, then download the Our Summer acapella, and get to fixin'!

 

And speaking of fixing, the single will be swiftly followed by Mixin To Thrill,  which compiles the new single, the studio version of live favorite My Things (which we previously knew as Get Your Titties Off My Things [OMG finally!!!]), and a host of some of the best Dragonette remixes of the past year. The disc will be let out on August 3, and coincides with the kick-off of their Our Summer Tour. Dates below.

Martin Solveig & Dragonette - Hello (new video!)

What a way to start the day. A little tennis action, some new Martin Solveig music, featuring Canadian friends Dragonette (who've just launched a new web site along with announcement of a new single) and a pretty rad video to boot. If you recall, last year Solveig teamed up with the band for Boys and Girls, a track with the support of Jean Paul Gaultier, and an equally stylized video. Today, we carry on in that tradition, sans major fashion designer.

 

Martinsolveig
 

Hello is the new single from Martin's forthcoming album, Smash. The track is a jaunty little pop number, and we dig it, but hell, we're gonna go all tennis terminology on you and say the video is ACE and we LOVE it. Sports references! 

 

The clip features Bob Sinclar, French comedian Gregory Darsa and tennis stars Novak Djokovic and Gael Monfils. The video was shot at Roland Garros in Paris in front of a real audience during the French Open.

 

Toss on a sweatband and watch the long-player below.

Beastly Bits #71

Weird how I "took the weekend off" from rad activities and yet y'all kept coming and looking for love. Even though I was "off the grid" per se, I still checked the ol' site stats. You crazy kids...get out from behind the computer and go play on yer Sat-Sun days off!
