Remix is out today on download, if you so fancy. Why not give yourself some context by watching this FACT TV short about the Glaswegian producer?
We were seriously impressed by AlunaGeorge’s debut single, ‘Your Drums, Your Love’, and the duo’s second offering continues to impress. ‘Watching Over You’ will feature on Annie Mac’s upcoming compilation (as do an ever-growing list of bangers…) and is another slice of smooth future RnB: George’s production again bringing the best out of, you guessed it, Aluna’s vocals.

Melbourne-based Roland Tings is back with his finely crafted style of euphoric yet well-measured beats. ‘Hedonist’, which he describes as ‘summertime on top of a mountain in the Australian bush distilled down into 8 mins of swirling digi synths’, is the first cut form his forthcoming EP.

And for one he’s made earlier? Turn this one up to 11.

If you weren’t already aware, Zane Lowe aired Disclosure’s new single ‘White Noise’ last night. They’ve recruited Aluna Francis from rising stars AlunaGeorge to provide the vocals and with catchy hooks aplenty, get ready for this slinky house number to completely saturate the radio waves. It’s destined to be top of the pops.
With a debut album due out in the not-too-distant-future and a massive UK and European tour ahead, the rise to superstardom continues for the brotherly duo. Given their uncanny ability to reinvigorate the 90s dance scene, we thought we’d use this as an excuse to post a few of the garage classics that may have inspired the young lads:
