La Roux – Let Me Down Gently (Prins Thomas Diskomiks)

Welcome back La Roux, and what charming friends you have…

Synth-popstar Elly Jackson is back with a rolling, melodic new single, ‘Let Me Down Gently’, and she’s enlisted Norwegian Full Pupp boss and general disco-head Prins Thomas to do his business on it. Good choice. Despite leaving out the electro-saxophone that lifts the original for us, Prins has produced a summer tune worthy of your iPod dock playlist.

Röyksopp & Robyn – Do It Again (Moullinex Remix)

A frivolous mood has taken HD Towers. It must be the sun.

This remix from Moullinex is good, honest, hands-in-the-air electro:

We’ve always had a soft spot for Robyn (ever since a kids breakfast TV interview with her pop star pre-incarnation, conducted by yours truly) and her ‘Body Talk’ album deserved every plaudit it got. Now we’re getting all hot and bothered about a new mini-album with Röyksopp, the title track being the above-remixed ‘Do It Again’.

All stirring stuff.

Say Lou Lou – Everything We Touch (Yannis remix)

It’s just a bit of fun, right?

Hey, it’s Friday. We’ve got the party of Spring/Summer sorted. We deserve a bit of frivolous entertainment. So thanks to Yannis Philippakis‎ from Foals for doing us a solid and remixing ‘Everything We Touch’ by Say Lou Lou, as premiered on Zane Lowe last night.

Just enjoy it.

Indiana – Solo Dancing (Joe Goddard Remix)

Singers everywhere, take note. After uploading a cover of Joe Goddard‘s ‘Gabriel’, Nottingham’s Indiana got picked up by big music bosses, and now here she is remixed by the man himself! What a story! What a tune!

As ever, JG’s done a job, teasing out the strengths of Indiana’s voice and underpinning it all with a moody groove. Now, where’s that Human Drizzle cover of ‘White Noise’…

Alex Metric & Jacques Lu Cont feat. Malin – Safe With You

Best put your hands in the air now, save yourself the trouble during this top drawer collaboration between Alex Metric and Jacques Lu Cont:

They’re two of dance music’s most euphoric producers, both with impeccable pop sensibilities, and their skills are perfectly complemented here by the vocal talents of Malin from Niki & The Dove. Premiered during Annie Mac’s show last week, it’s due out on Ministry of Sound soon. Here’s a longer, dub mix with a back and forth between Annie and Jacques thrown in first (tune starts around 2:35):

What a pick-me-up.

Crayon & Pyramid – So Far Gone EP

This takes us back. We’ve mentioned before how Pyramid‘s brand of French electro reminds us of the heady days of Ed Banger dancefloor domination in 2006. Well, now he’s teamed up with another purveyor of excellent remixesCrayon (who seems to have dropped the definite article), to produce an EP packed with light, disco-inspired electro. ‘Wolf’ is a particular highlight: a squelchy banger which ends up featuring some rather improbable axework. It’s all great fun, and the EP is out on another huge player from those golden days, the excellent Kitsuné Records.
