The announcement of Sofi Tukker‘s forthcoming tour with Odesza this Fall sparked them to unleash this stellar remix of their track “Moon Tattoo.” The remix is masterfully handled by Aussie producer Frost. “Moon Tattoo” was already an amazing track before (practically untouchable), but Frost manages to give us a deeper perspective. He utilizes low, atmospheric synths with the bass and vocals from the original. The result is something that takes you higher and higher leaving you among the stars. Check out the tour dates on their Facebook page!

There’s a new EP on the way from Russ Chimes and tomorrow it’ll be available to purchase! The first taste is here for you to hear and it’s called “Wildflower.” It’s serving up all the summer vibes we’ve been craving. Warm, melodic, sensual and with a tempo that gives you the option to dance or sit and enjoy with a cocktail in hand. The ‘Clara’ EP will be dropping via Russ’ imprint Uno Mas Records. Here is a bit on the release from the man himself:
“…Although the last few releases have been varied, and more explorative, this EP is just a reminder of that feeling I had when I first started making music. Essentially it’s what I love, loads and loads of melody, hands in the air moments and super warm grooves. Music that embraces all and makes you smile.
I hope you enjoy, go grab a gin and tonic and listen and as a whole.
Thank you for the continued support. – Russ”
Get an earful of this new remix from Louis La Roche for a collaborative track from NY based rapper Fyütch and Boba Sweat. The track is called “Taboo” and it’s lifted from the ‘Freakazoid’ EP that was released back in April via the Deskpop imprint. Louis took some inspiration from Daft Punk to celebrate 20 years since the release of their debut album ‘Homework.’ This is the first taste of the forthcoming remix package for ‘Freakazoid’ from Boba Sweat so make sure to keep an ear to ground for the rest.
There’s a new duo hitting the scene made up of two of our favorite producers going by the moniker of Luces. Luces is Felix Bloxsom, a.k.a Plastic Plates, and Caleb Cornett, a.k.a Amtrac. Together these two uber talented producers bring you a four track debut titled ‘Habitual Ritual’ blending big room energy with deep house drive and classic disco sheen (the perfect blend of both their styles). There are three originals along with a surging remix from another power duo Autofac (a.k.a Shit Robot & Juan MacLean). The EP is available now on vinyl and over on Let’s Play House‘s Bandcamp page with a wider release on the way for this Friday, June 16th!
Selected Sounds shared a stunning remix over a week ago that has been making waves on the blogosphere lately with no signs of slowing down. It’s garnered plenty of support and for good reason too because Dutch producer UOAK really created something memorable with his take on “Silent Games“ by Lars Beck & Henri Purnell. The track also features poignant vocals from Honolulu based singer/ songwriter, Zekt. UOAK captures the raw emotion in the lyrics with a driving deep house melody that sounds just as good on the dance floor as it does in your bedroom. Stream it after the jump.
The Kitsuné Hot Stream crew delivers the goods once again with a brand new track from Disco Repair in collaboration with Ridney. It has all the good vibes you’ll need this summer. It has those classic disco chords progressing into a blissful combination of funky guitars, charming vocals and expansive synths. We can’t get enough of that funk. This is the ultimate mood boost. Hit play and enjoy it on repeat!
If there’s one label you should be looking to for summer playlist staples it’s definitely The Magician’s Potion imprint. They just released a brand new single from London producer Parx. And if this track doesn’t get you in the mood for daytime, poolside parties then you need to get your ears checked. It’s a great mix of tropical, sun kissed house with deep house. Don’t sleep on it.

This next track has been on repeat since yesterday. We just can’t seem to get over how rad this track is. It hails from Sweden via producer DJ Different and it goes by the name “It’s Getting Late.” The bass is thunderous, yet minimal and there is a really cool jazzy vibe to the track that we love. But it isn’t just sampling jazz, rather it takes inspiration from the dynamism, spontaneity and movement in jazz. Each element takes on a life of its own and once they come together they deliver a powerful house track that is not easily forgotten.
Here are some soothing soundwaves for you to enjoy all day long. The track hails from Brisbane/Byron Bay, Australia via the brother sister trio Niterunner. “Impatient“ will actually have you feeling the opposite effect and leave you patiently listening up until the final seconds of the track. Andrea Suesskow’s vocals are like a siren call that melts in your ear while the instrumentals have enough of a groovy tinge to get you on your feet and dancing. Really good stuff here from this burgeoning trio.
Pat Lok‘s album is almost here and four days ago he gave us the latest taste of what’s to come from ‘Hold On Let Go.’ This track is a beautiful blend of 90s house and nu disco. “Stay Together” is a quintessential summer anthem that you should definitely keep handy. It has those arresting diva vocals, a rewarding build that drops into a really funky groove and rad artwork. Be on the lookout for the album dropping June 23rd!
