The latest Hard Candy X mix comes courtesy of Brooklyn-based duo Chordashian, our latest obsession! We first featured them a few months ago with the brilliant ‘Cold Nights,’ a delightful house track which lifts vocals from Lana Del Rey‘s ‘Summertime Sadness.’ After falling in love with it, we devoured the rest of their material then tapped them to be a part of the series.
‘Nights & Weekends’ is an energetic house offering, over the space of an hour it takes you on an orgasmic journey, with excellent cuts from some of the most exciting artists and producers in the game right now. We’ve got ‘How To Hold On To You‘ by our man Clancy, who produced the last Hard Candy X mix (listen here), the brilliant ‘Turn Me Out‘ by Russ Chimes, and the divine Krystal Clear mix of Sky Ferreira‘s ‘Everything Is Embarrassing‘ to name but a few!
Be sure to keep up with Chordashian on Facebook and treat yourself to a tasty collection of tracks they’ve offered up as free downloads!
A few months ago, I was listening to Zimmer‘s June 2012 mixtape ‘Tobogan,‘and noted some of Madonna‘s ‘Get Together‘ vocals had been used in a glorious tropical disco flavored track. I finally went back to the tracklist and discovered it was Chordashian‘s ‘Illusion.’ It’s such an incredibly sexy track and always brings a smile to my face whenever I play it, i’m quite sure you’ll feel the same.
Enjoy the flawless original in Madonna‘s official video for the track. It should be noted that I’m still mad about the fact my favorite song on Confessions didn’t get a proper video!
We’ve had Chordashian‘s delightful ‘Cold Nights‘ on repeat at Hard Candy HQ for several weeks, and now we have a fresh mix of the track to add to our playlist! SoundSAM‘s funky take on the track adds heaps of robotic vocoder and a dirty bassline. We’re loving it!
Brooklyn based duo Chordashian‘s latest outing brings two of my favorite things together – house music and Lana Del Rey. Best of all, it’s available as a free mp3 download. This one features bits and pieces of Lana’s ‘Summertime Sadness’ woven within an uplifting modern house throwback beat. Really fantastic work!
