Leftfield Parisian electronic singer/songwriter/producer Jeremie Whistler’s star has been on the rise since he released the well-received Flakes EP, co-produced with Angelo Foley (Christine & The Queens) and Apollo Noir (Tigersushi), in 2014.
His latest offering “Seven Seas” forms a prelude to the chapters that follow in his upcoming debut album, The Dawn, due in 2019.
Ahead of the album’s release Whistler has tapped electro-popper Louise Roamto remix his new song “Smoke Signals,” which we’re pleased to world premiere.
Says Whistler of his fellow Parisian’s remix: “I thought of Louise for a remix because I fell in love with her song ‘The March.’ Her style is pretty similar to mine but she took the track somewhere else. She did such an amazing work; I was very surprised that she used her voice in the remix and how perfectly it works with mine.”

Working under his SK Shlomo alias, Simon Shlomo Kahn is an impressive singer-songwriter, beatboxer, producer and live looping technologist based in London. His lengthy list of accomplishments includes recording with Björk to playing the main stage at Glastonbury.
Khan’s upcoming fan-funded debut album, Surrender, due in March 2019, is a deeply personal record where he opens up about his struggles with depression and PTSD. The full-length’s introspective second single, “The First Time,” has been remixed by Nebula Productions label boss Lost Raven, who reimagines the song through the lens of ’90s UK garage.
We’re thrilled to world premiere the red-hot remix that’s brimming with deep basslines, shuffling beats and atmospherics à la genre godfathers Double 99, 187 Lockdown and Artful Dodger.
Says Kahn of the remix, “I love how Lost Raven has preserved the meaning and emotions of this really personal song but at the same time has given it an old-skool speed garage party vibe. I can’t wait to play this out, it’s going to go off!”

Nearly two decades into their career, Soul Clap’s list of professional feats are many. Eli Goldstein and Charles Levine have collectively poured their blood, sweat and tears into realizing a soulful sound that has one foot in the past, the other in the future. Their dedication, vision and unwavering attention to quality has won them a faithful fanbase that’s allowed them to rock international dance floors, produce and remix movement-inducing jams, collaborate with the likes of Nona Hendryx to Parliament-Funkadelic’s George Clinton, and run a label that exists to shine the spotlight on their coterie of talented friends.
Having faced his share of challenges and lived to tell, the timing couldn’t be more right for Levine to explore his Lonely C alias, a project in which he plays guitar and keyboards, drum programming and handles arrangements. The result of more than five years of work is his heartfelt debut solo album, Charles & Tribulations, an introspective collection of songs in which he throws down like you’ve never heard him before.
We’re honored to world premiere the album’s opening track “Class of ’99,” a kinetic booty shaker featuring skittering 8-bit sounding synths, clacking percussion, deep chords and a sultry female vocal. Hit the play button below for an exclusive taste, pick up the album on November 27 on Soul Clap Records and catch Charlie on the road in 2019.
