Top 5 Tracks of the Week

1. DJ Yellow – Ride The Rhythm (Ian Pooley Remix): Ian Pooley adds his Midas touch to this Marshall Jefferson cover from Paris-based DJ Yellow. Compost Records doing the business on this party-starter.

2. Joe Goddard – Music Is The Answer: Joe Goddard’s sophomore solo album ‘Electric Lines’ is coming out on 21st April on Greco-Roman/Domino, and with tunes this catchy it’s certainly one to look out for. For the Londoners amongst you, catch his next solo live show at Heaven on 4th May.

3. Thundercat – Show You The Way (feat. Michael McDonald & Kenny Loggins): Thundercat dropped this smooth-as-you-like number featuring the legendary Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald earlier on in the week. It’s a little precursor to his hefty global tour and star-filled LP due out in March – Flying Lotus, Kendrick Lamar and Pharrell are a just a few of the names featured on the team sheet. Stay tuned.

4. Yaki Incipient – Cracked: This is the second release on new label South Street (see Urulu’s offering for the first) and it’s penned by Yaki Incipient, supposedly an already ‘prominent Dutch house and techno artist’. Mystery aliases aside, the tune’s a thumper and we can’t get enough of the infectious disco loop.

5. Marquis Hawkes – The Burning Light: Marquis Hawkes returns to Aus Music on 10th February with ‘The Sweet Temptation’ EP. ‘The Burning Light’ is the first taster of five tracks in total and it’s sounding euphoric.

Mix of the week’s from London-based Renata and her offering to the Gottwood mix series, just over sixty minutes of balearic goodness, global flavours and chugging house:

Top 5 Tracks of the Week

1. Sauce81 – Dance Tonight: Next up on Alexander Nut’s Eglo Records is this wonderful slice of boogie/disco/funk served up by Tokyo-based producer Sauce81. Pre-orders here.

2. Chaos In The CBD – North Pole Cafe: South London (via New Zealand) producers CITCBD have teamed up with friend and collaborator Jon Sable to present a new imprint, In Dust We Trust. ‘North Pole Cafe’ features on the first EP from said label and it’s both soulful and melancholic. Head over here for the rest of the EP.

3. JeanGa and George – Compromise: As premiered on Dummy Mag yesterday, London-based duo JeanGa and George drop this hypnotic, piano-heavy number as one of the lead singles off their debut album,’European Repetitive Beat‘ (out today).

4. David Douglas – Highway Of Love: Big year for Dutch producer/artist/video director David Douglas with his new album ‘Spectators Of The Universe’ being released on Atomnation on March 24th. His live show sounds like a (technical) blast so keep an eye on his socials for tour dates.

5. Z Lovecraft – Myriad: An all-South London affair here. Rhythm Section family member Z Lovecraft is providing the goods for No Bad Days’ third 12” release, ‘The Creator’. ‘Myriad’ is on the B-side and it’s super smooth.

And for the longer listen. This week’s edition of Harbinger Kurt’s Bloop radio show – an exploration of ‘the wonderfully opaque landscape of electronic music ’ – is filled with some excellent unsigned material, popular forthcoming releases and some of their older favourites too. It’s a goodie.

4. Gidge – Lit: Taking samples from their previous album ‘Lulin’, Swedish duo Gidge are developing the atmospheric soundscapes they’re known for into a more concise, danceable sound. Their seven track mini album ‘LNLNN’ is released today on Atomnation.

5. Aera – Rotunde: Berlin-based ‘Rotunde’ unveils this perky number ahead of his four track EP due out on soon on John Talabot’s Hivern Discs.
