Russian pop/funk outfit Pompeya are set to release the Tropical Remix Compilation on December 10 via Brooklyn label No Shame.

Listen: Pompeya – 90 (Fred Falke Remix)
A native of France and French house pioneer, Falke has defined a signature sound bridging electronic and pop styles garnering acclaim through notable reworks of and remixes of mainstream acts including Katy Perry and Lana Del Rey. His remix of Pompeya’s “90” hits hard across nu-disco and funk while showcasing his skill in channeling the essence of the original into a polished remix that stands confidently on its own.
With roots firmly established in their Russian homeland including extensive touring and TV appearances, Pompeya are broadening their reach to the U.S. and beyond with their distinct blend of 70s disco, 80s New Wave, and 90s indie rock. Recently, the band’s debut album Tropical received praise across influential outlets including Under The Radar Mag, MTV Hive, Interview Mag, Earmilk, and DUMMY Mag.

Last month I posted the video for “Slaver” from the band Pompeya. Now, the US full-length debut is available! Tropical is an ode to 70s disco and 80s new wave in a sound that is pop music in its finest form. The Moscow-based group has seen “Power”, “90”, and “Slaver” as the record’s first singles, each accompanied by all new music videos. The LP will be paired with a remix EP, which features contributions from Psychemagik, Fred Falke, Jimmy Edgar, and more. The official Remix EP will be included as a free download for those that purchase the 12” special edition double vinyl, and will be released officially in December 2013.

The album Good Morning To The Night came out via Casablanca on July 17th, and now Casablanca is putting out the deluxe edition on September 25th. The Australian duo Pnau (also known from their breakthrough side-project, Empire Of The Sun!) has re-invented some early classic 70’s Elton John on Good Morning To The Night. Elton John signed Pnau after listening to their record a few years ago, and now with his blessing, a selection of Elton’s old masters have been re-imagined into an album featuring their recreations of his classic songs between 1970-1976.
Check out two brand new remixes from the project below!

Pacific Festival Entertainment is the vision of two groups of longtime friends with a combined 40 years of experience in music and event production. Steve Aoki, world-renowned DJ and founder of Dim Mak Records, and Mike Tunney, founder of Collaborative Media, have been friends for over 25 years, growing up together in Newport Beach. As their first business venture, Aoki and Tunney wanted to create a new music and arts festival for the Orange County community. With a keen vision to produce first-class live entertainment experiences, the two friends joined
forces to create Pacific Festival Entertainment alongside Kelson Berkus and Orange County-native Justin Ruiz.
“The idea was to produce an event that connects culture with community; art with music; and entertainment with philanthropy in our backyard of Orange County,” says Steve Aoki, one of the festival’s founding partners. “We wanted to establish a premium music and arts festival, and have organized a large collective of seasoned event producers, artists, friends and musicians.”
Last year, Governor Schwarzenegger endorsed DEEJAY DC’s successful Guinness Book of World Records attempt at Pacific Festival: OC for the world longest DJ set—spanning 121 consecutive hours. “This is a quite an endeavor you’re about to undertake, one that could not happen without your determined efforts and skills. As a former professional athlete, I know the tremendous amount of preparation it takes to become a winner, and I applaud your dedication to making your goals a reality,” wrote Governor Schwarzenegger in a letter of support written to Deejay DC.
Pacific Festival: OC will showcase over 30 of independent music’s most talented live acts and DJs from around the world across four premium soundstages at an incredible, picturesque lakeside venue within the heart of Orange County. Pacific Festival: OC is pleased to announce the first round of performers which include: CUT COPY, STEVE AOKI, CALVIN HARRIS, GHOSTLAND OBSERVATORY, !!! (CHK CHK CHK), PHANTOGRAM, TORO Y MOI, CLASSIXX, AFROMAN, ZOOT WOMAN, THE TWELVES, FRED FALKE, THE GROWLERS, HANNI EL KHATIB, SUPERHUMANOIDS, AMERICAN ROYALTY, JUSTIN MILLER, THE C90S and KEDD COOK (more artists to be announced each week). “The festival has a good mix of genres, not covering just dance music or just indie rock like so many new festivals,” states Golden Bloggen about last year’s launch.
