Satin Jackets teams up with David Harks once again to give us a searing and quintessential anthem that can seamlessly transition from bedroom to car to dance floor. The first time they collaborated was on “Northern Lights” which surfaced last year and we were enthralled to say the least so we were definitely looking forward to more from them. This gem is dubbed “Through The Night“ and it reads as an intimate love letter with an intoxicating perfume. David’s vocals are airy and soft while Tim Bernhardt (a.k.a Satin Jackets) delivers the final punch with a gorgeous, dreamy disco groove.
Délicieuse Records sub-label, Noire & Blanche, and Tell have a stellar new release brewing and ready to drop at the end of the month. For now we have two tracks hot off the press and lifted from the EP called ‘Cool Bananas.’ First up is “Starry Night” with a warm and sophisticated groove that melts in your ears as you glide across the dance floor with this disco tinged dream. The second taste premiered via the Stamp The Wax crew and it’s called “Camel Ride.” This one brings more of that irresistible dynamic percussion supported by a hazy, atmospheric house sheen. Stream both after the jump!
You know those tracks that make the best soundtracks for really long drives? Well, ZHU and Tame Impala teamed up to deliver a new staple for both your car and the nightclub. The track is called “My Life” and it a hypnotic and melancholic ride. It seamlessly brings together ZHU’s deep, electronic grooves with the brilliant psychedelia found with Tame Impala. And they shared a visualizer (up above) that fits the track beautifully. This one is going to be one of our favorites to use during festival season. For now, we’ll take it with us for an afternoon bike ride because these drops are on another level and would go great with a brisk, post-rain breeze.
It’s the middle of the week and the time when everyone is itching for the weekend. Here goes one to get you in that mood. It’s called “The Perfect Time” and it’s hitting all the right spots with a vibrant groove. The French mastermind behind the track is Matthieu Faubourg. And he has a keen grasp of what would make that peak hour dance floor go wild. Keep an ear out for the drop via Berlin imprint Smile For A While!
Bristol based imprint Shall Not Fade has established itself as a go-to source for soulful and authentic house music. One of their latest releases has been on constant rotation for the last couple of days. It’s the new EP from Parisian producer Pierre Moritz called ‘Dédé Is Back.’ In it you’ll catch 4 gorgeous tracks combining potent disco and house for your enjoyment both on and off the dance floor. The final track off the EP surfaced a little over a week ago and serving up some seriously groovy sound waves with a dash of jazz.
Leave it to the French to be a constant source of sophisticated, sensual disco grooves. This one comes from French producer Agrume as he gives his take on Kusmee‘s “Change.” The original is already a top notch dance track to begin with so Agrume had quite the task on his hands. But it’s safe to say he definitely lived up to the challenge with this remix. He takes it from house to sultry disco funk. Those opening chords that cascade into the full on, lush groove are masterful to say the least. And then he gives us this majestic orchestral breakdown before the end.
Brand new music here from Special Q as he teams up with the Stratford Ct. crew to unleash “Hope.” This super chill electro gem is serving up all the feel-good vibes we need on a Monday to kick off the work week on the right foot. It’s warm, melodic and relaxing which is exactly the way you want to start your mornings. The track is part of the label’s “Secret Selections” series and you can catch the stream after the jump.
Tensnake revisits and revamps a Charlotte Gainsbourg original off her album ‘Rest’ that dropped last year. The track is called “Sylvia Says” and Tensnake transforms it into a total dance floor anthem. He does a great job of building on the subtle traces of disco in the original and giving them a much needed boost. The chill bassline in Charlotte’s version is highlighted and celebrated in Tensnake’s remix. It’s a bouncing electro/disco burner ready for the picking for the warmer months on the way. Full stream after the jump!

Yuksek teams up with one of his biggest inspirations, Bertrand Burgalat, on what can only be described as some of the most glorious disco we’ve heard in a while. The track is called “ICARE“ which translates to “Icarus” and is inspired by the myth about the boy who flew to close to the sun. The track is the perfect blend of classic and contemporary disco. It’s relentlessly groovy and sun-kissed with a splash of soul and an air of romance. These two really worked up some magic in the studio. Now you have a new staple for your Spring/Summer playlists! The EP is out today along a remix from Yuksek himself and a super rad psychedelic video to go along with the single. Fan the flames after the jump!
When Adult Swim started delving into music and also releasing it on their site we weren’t really sure what to expect. But they’ve definitely proven to be a well of hidden gems. Yesterday they unleashed a track from Jacques Greene as part of their singles series for 2018. It’s called “Nordschleife“ named after the treacherous race track based in Germany that is an irresistible attraction for tourists and racers worldwide. Jacques gives us something minimal and mechanical, but with a lot of uplifting atmospheric vibes and a bit of heartbreak with the vocals from Kelsey Bulkin.
