Fantastic summer track from a new (at least to me) artist that will undoubtedly appear on many mixes over the next few weeks. Grab his album, Pacific Standard Time , on July 9th. Poolside - Slow Down
The UK duo are doing big things in 2012 and this is the next stream off of their upcoming EP, The Face , which will be released on June 4th. Instead of sampling the vocals, Control has originals from Ria Ritchie. Stay tuned for remixes by Joe Goddard and others.
Matthew Dear has a new album coming out on August 28th called Beams. Take a listen to the first single, Her Fantasy , which will be released on June 5th.
Some easy listening from Vampire Weekend's bassist who is releasing his first solo project and going on a mini-djing tour. His EP, Sunburn , will be released May 21st via Joe Goddard's label, Greco-Roman.
Diplo has been doing some serious damage in 2012. it has been a while since I've heard some good music from Major Lazer, but Get Free qualifies. Amber Coffman of the Dirty Projectors lends her vocals to the track which has a smooth, yet slightly melancholy feel to it. Major Lazer - Get Free (ft. Amber Coffman)
I have a thing for UK artists it seems, because I am always featuring them. Well, either that or they just keep pumping out solid music. Ware first starting gaining buzz in 2010 after working with SBTRKT and since then has made a lot of noise. She is partly responsible for one of my favorite songs from him, Right Thing To Do. Check out 110% from the South Londoner, which will probably sound nothing like you expect it to sound. Shout out to Big Pun. As a bonus, take a listen to Disclosure's remix [...]
Night and Day is the first official single off of their upcoming album, In Our Heads. The single will be available as both a 12" and digital download June 4th via Domino Records. Stream it here But it here
Didn't make it out to Coachella this year, but this looks awesome. Interested to hear how it looked in person...
Another sexy track for the weekend... Disclosure is two brothers from the UK with a house / deep bass sound. If you don't know, now you know... Be sure and check out some of their other tracks as well.
Beautiful song with a totally NSFW video. Rhye is an L.A. duo of Robin Hannibal and Mike Milosh that only has 3 songs to date. If they keep pumping out tracks like this with Sade-like vocals, I see big things in their future. Rhye - Open
This one is off of Joe Goddard and Valentina's, Gabriel Remixes II . If you haven't heard the original, check it out here . Great song and interesting interpretation for the remix. Buy it here .
