If you asked us for an artist who we thought represented the Hard Candy vibe, we’d have to put Glass Candy high up on the list. Producer Mike Simonetti has an uncanny knack for creating a catchy, pop tune while infusing his unique blend of gritty disco and sexy beats. Their latest video, for last years jam “Beautiful Object” - directed by (as always) Alberto Rossini is available to view below.
“…FOR A GOOD TIME….CALL 1-800-GLASS-CANDY…”
Originally recorded in 2008 and sampling Geto Boys classic ‘Mind Playing Tricks On Me,’ Glass Candy are offering up their own version for free mp3 d ownload today.
Other samples on ‘Geto Boys’ include Isaac Hayes ‘Hung Up On My Baby’ and Sugarboy Crawford’s ‘IKO IKO’ – a great selection indeed. Listen + download below.

Glass Candy unveiled the video for Warm In The Winter today - one of our standout tracks of the past few months. It’s definitely not cold over at GC headquarters, this undeniably catchy synth laden tune will be warming us up for months to come. The nearly 8-minute clip was directed by Alberto Rossini.
The Warm In The Winter / Beautiful Object EP is out now.
Glass Candy make a triumphant return to the scene with new jam Warm In The Winter and the accompanying b-side Beautiful Object, just released on the super cool and brilliantly named Italians Do It Better label.
Warm in the Winter is a glorious extended number, clocking in at over 7 minutes. After the Where The Streets Have No Name esque intro, Ida’s smooth vocals come in and I start the transition to a trance like state!
No-one does Italo-Disco better than these guys!
WARM IN THE WINTER
I’ve been obsessed with Glass Candy since hearing the album B/E/A/T/B/O/X randomly several years ago and falling in love with their hypnotic italo-disco sound. I have long been awaiting something new from them since their last release Deep Gems, a collection of b-sides and unreleased tracks back in 2008. Well tonight here it is! We bring you the first look at the brand new video for the 12 ” version of Feeling Without Touching from their recently released EP of the same name… Grab it on Itunes! If you’re unfamiliar with the band do yourself a favor and get acquainted!

If you’ve been hankerin’ for something new from Glass Candy, look no further! They’ve worked their remix magic on THE LONG BLONDES track Nostalgia. It’s a slow burner, keeping with Glass Candy’s signature italo-synth sound!

Let’s Take Off Our Maskssss…..
So Glass Candy, perhaps old news to some, but definitely worth a mention anyway. Their album Beatbox is amazing. They have been described as Neo-Disco. It’s such a nice mellow album it makes you wanna take a nice long evening drive in a convertible with the top down
This is the video for Digtial Versicolor. The way it’s shot reminds me of the movie ‘Downtown 81′ I love it!
They have a new song on their MySpace and are always posting demos so check them out!
