Croquet Club – Love Exposure EP

Lovely stuff from Anjunadeep-affiliate Croquet Club.

‘You Left Me’ is the final track off the French producer’s forthcoming ‘Love Exposure’ EP and joins the recently-uploaded ‘Careless Love’, two super-chilled tracks perfect for that poolside playlist you’ve been working on.

The EP’s out on 17th June, get your pre-orders in here.

Weval LP

Continuing their exploration into slow-burning, emotive electronica, Dutch duo Weval have just dropped two more dreamy soundscapes ahead of their debut LP, due for release on Kompakt on 10th June.

We also highly recommend trying to catch their live show at some point this year. Kicking off with the formidable ‘Gimme Some’, their live set from Nuits Sonores looked pure class.

Seb Wildblood – Jazz Vol.1

Another dreamy cut from your boy Seb Wildblood.

‘Jazz Vol.1’ is the title track from his forthcoming EP which features three originals and one remix from fellow South Londoner Medlar. It’s due for release this Friday on his very own Church label.

XLR8R recently invited the lad to pull together a mix. It’s just shy of an hour and is definitely worth sticking on.

Vallis Alps – Young (Zimmer remix)

Reflective tones on the new remix from Parisian producer Zimmer. He’s stretched out ‘Young’ from Seattle-based Vallis Alps, adding another level of dreaminess to the already melancholic tune.

For the longer listen, dip into his recent May mixtape featuring a couple of remixes from the Frenchie, besides gems from Lindstrom, Kenton Slash Demon and Moderat:

Junktion – Wide Awake EP

You wanna know what the summer sounds like?

The Dutch producer-extraordinaire Junktion, known for his work co-running the label Outplay and penning tunes as one half of Fouk, has dropped a gem of an EP on said label. It’s called ‘Wide Awake’ and contains four tracks of sun-drenched disco goodness. The above ‘Sunny Side Up’ is a firm favourite, but check out the other three laid-back, funky house cuts below.

Dems – Gold

Dems have got political. We’ve been following the London threepiece’s trajectory for half a decade now and it’s not one that has been characterised by rage. But when they were evicted from their South London work space to make room for more luxury flats in a city that surely has enough by now, they decided to make a statement through their music.

‘Gold’ is the result and, while the themes represent a departure from their previous material, fans will be pleased to hear exactly the kinds of lush melodies and layered production that have made their music such a pleasure up to this point. Suitably given the topic, ‘Gold’ loses some of the fragility of their early work. Instead it slides into a distorted, echoey refrain that stays with you and hammers home Dems’ message to the developers changing the shape of their city. With a new London mayor starting work this week, it’s a message that couldn’t be more apposite.

 

Roosevelt – Colours/Moving On

One of our favourite Colognian producers Roosevelt has finally unveiled plans to release his debut album. ‘Night Moves’ will drop on 19th August courtesy of the UK’s Greco-Roman and Berlin’s City Slang Records.

To mark its launch Roosevelt released the above video which includes two new singles ‘Colours’ and ‘Moving On’. Both tracks encorporate his Balearic, feel-good sound and set the tone nicely for what should be a successful mid-summer LP release. It’s been a long time coming (he could easily be the most-featured artist on HD, we’ve been watching the lad intently since the end of 2012…)
