Bondax – All I See (TCTS Remix)

This one nearly slipped through the net, which quite frankly, would’ve been a travesty. The Greco-Roman-affiliated producer TCTS is on the remix for Bondax here, and as Annie Mac says, he’s on fire. He’s given the already catchy single a boost by adding in an excellent summer-sounding piano loop, amongst other things.

TCTS’ very own ‘Games’ EP came out just a few weeks ago. Certainly worth your time.

John Talabot – Bicep Remixes

JT’s producing bangers for fun right now…

You thought we meant Justin Timberlake didn’t you? Heathens. Anyway, John Talabot’s followed up his superb Pional remix with not one but two remixes for the latest Bicep release and they are both EXCELLENT. It’s rolling tech house of the kind JT (careful…) is world-beating at right now. We will be as ‘down the front’ as it’s possible to be on 8th November for his Hivern Discs showcase.

Julio Bashmore – Simple Love Feat J’Danna

Bashmore’s back, and he’s coming into some form.

A taster from his debut album, now slated for release next February, ‘Simple Love’ is at the deeper end of JB’s work and is better for it. It builds on the strong recent EP from his Velour project with Hyetal. Which is below. For you.

More of this please.

Tensnake – Feel Of Love (Joe Goddard Remix)

Joe Goddard’s back adding his magic touch to Tensnake’s new single ‘Feel Of Love’. The German producer originally made the tune with heavyweights Jamie Lidell and Jacques Lu Cont, and now the 2 Bears and Hot Chip producer has stretched it out and soaked the tune in carnival vibes. It goes on and on, and it still isn’t long enough.*

Jokes vid for the original too:

*If you’re London-based and want that little bit more, we highly recommend getting down to The Nest this Friday night for Goddard’s weighty 5-hour set. It’s already sold out but we hear there’s plenty of tickets on the door.

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:
