Caribou – Can’t Do Without You (Mano Le Tough Remix)

Not quite sure how legit this cut is, but arguably one of the tunes of the year has been remixed by Mano Le Tough, and it sounds really very good indeed. This is sure to give Caribou’s fine return-single airtime that lasts well in to the last quarter.

Skream – Let It Go

The evolution of Skream continues…

Out with the dubstep, out with the disco, in with pared-back house almost straying into electronica. He’s certainly versatile. ‘Let It Go’ is a soundcloud treat following on the heels of his new label launch. Of Unsound Mind kicked off with a three track EP by Motions, one half of Grown Folk:

It’s a good start.

Midland – Duster

Midland’s teaming up with Aus Music again for his next release, a three-track EP entitled ‘Duster’ out on 16th September.

Just like ‘Before We Leave’, recently released on Phonica, Midland’s creating more first class soundscapes using synths, strings, percussion and more. ‘Duster’s an infectious slow-burner and is joined on the EP by Pitch Drift and Reflex, the latter was dropped by Jamie XX in his Benji B takeover show.

Big release, this one.

Shelby Grey – Leave It All Behind EP

Having posted the title track a couple of weeks back, the Barcelona-based Shelby Grey’s ‘Leave It All Behind’ EP is finally here.

Final track ‘Glow In The Jungle’ is, quite frankly, full of brooding tension and may not be the best solution to any post-bank holiday haze you may have encountered – not to say the tune ain’t decent. ‘Leave It All Behind’ and ‘My Love’ however chug along at a wonderful pace, and with steady bpm’s and repetitive vocals, they’re both brilliantly hypnotic.

The EP’s out today on Holographic People.

Gidge – Norrland

Huge shouts to Gidge for yet again delivering another top notch tune ahead of their debut album release.

You get the feeling the Swedish duo put their all into their music. The orchestration is dense, and with the average duration of anything we’ve heard being around the seven minute mark, they’ve got a fine knack for stretching out a song and gradually building it towards crescendo. The atmospherics are expansive and the production feels real sharp.

In short, we’re big fans. Their music hits that special spot and we can’t wait to get our hands on the album, Autumn Bells. It’s out on 23rd September on Atomnation, but you can make your pre-orders here. Two must-listens from the album:

Caribou – Our Love

Caribou’s back with a bang. The internet’s rejoiced over the last couple of days as Mr Dan Snaith has unveiled the title track from his forthcoming album, ‘Our Love’. With the album dropping on 6th October via City Slang and a huge world tour in the pipeline, things are looking good for the multi-faceted producer.

As expected ‘Our Love’ is as equally as impressive as ‘Can’t Do Without You’. It’s unpredictable but totally infectious, and it’s about time we got it up:

Artifact – Even (Huxley Remix)

Hitting “shops” (IRL versions of iTunes) yesterday, Bristolian Artifact’s new EP on Huxley’s Saints & Sonnets imprint contains this gem of a remix from label bossman himself:

A bit of accordion, some ratatat snare drums and Huxley’s house sensibilities make for an enjoyable four minutes. We’ll be keeping an eye on this fruitful partnership.

Few Nolder – IF

Snippets of Few Nolder’s ‘IF’ have been kicking around for a while, but we’re finally treated to the whole shebang. Although the Lithuanian producer’s been making music since 2006, we were only recently introduced to his dark side of techno through the second release on Ten Wall’s BOSO label, that of the atmospheric ‘Chall’.

Together with Ten Walls, FN’s carving quite the reputation for hefty basslines, and ‘IF’ is no exception. The track however comes fully equipped with a catchy vocal, which will no doubt propel it into more accessible territory.

Released on Connaisseur Recordings on 27th August.

Future Disco Presents: All Day Dancing

As tasters go, this is a nice little morsel:

Looking back over 2014 thus far, Future Disco pull together seventy minutes of, dare we say it, Human Drizzle House. They’ve agreed with us on, amongst others, Ten Walls and Few Nolder, and we’re in lockstep with their other choices.

They’ve taken inspiration from outdoor parties the world over and anywhere that plays this set can expect us in the queue.

Mystery Skulls – Paralyzed (Aeroplane Remix)

Bit of fun for a Friday afternoon. Aeroplane’s rustled up a piano-laden remix for the LA-based Mystery Skulls‘ sing-along anthem ‘Paralyzed’. The bouncy Belgian producer at his best.
