If you listened to The Magician‘s first mixtape of 2013, you may have recognized this new track ‘Darkness’ by new duo Du Tonc. One part Mighty Mouse and one part Van She‘s Matt Van Schie. We’ll be watching them closely this year. Washed out New Order-esque guitar with a slight Empire of the Sun feel to it. Listen below.
Van She just released the video for the beautiful tropical anthem Jamaica, which unsurprisingly was filmed on the gorgeous island. The boys look to be having the time of their lives and watching this really makes me what to take a trip!
You can catch them at a few dates in North and South America this fall, I’m definitely going to check them out as I’m loving the new album Idea Of Happiness.
You can always rely on Plastic Plates to deliver a stellar remix and he’s done just that with his take on Van She‘s tropical flavored latest single Jamaica. There is no better way to bring in the official start of summer than with this delightful disco flavored jam!

SebastiAn infuses his signature groovy electronic stylings into Van She‘s latest effort Idea of Happiness. Let’s dance! Make sure to check out the delicious video for the track.
Modular are surely one of my favorite labels, possibly one of the best out there right now. You can grab Idea Of Happiness on iTunes worldwide, featuring remixes by Herve, Jonti and What So Not.
After the song premiere last week, we now have the video for Van She‘s excellent new single Idea Of Happiness, which was directed by Andrea Nilsson (MGMT, Yeasayer, The Knife).
It’s quite the odd little video, the best part of which is the guy in a thong carrying a Christmas tree! Watch and share your thoughts!
