Ferdinand Weber, Kelli-Leigh, Fabich – What They Call Love

24 May

Here’s an uplifting house banger combining some fine keys and the even more delectable pipes of Kelli-Leigh – who should be (along with Camden Cox) the go to artist for every featured dance track this year. Those women rock.

Moon King & Vespre – Seconds From You

24 May

We’ve lost touch a bit with Moon King after loving his earlier singles ‘Apartment Fire’ and ‘I’ve Stopped Believing’. However his new tune with the soulful vocals of Vespre hits the mark. It’s a loungey indie disco jam which shuffles along in a very laid back way.

Prinze George – Garden In The Sky

23 May

Prinze George have a new single and it’s one the danciest, most summery things they’ve done. The early verses are our favourite bit, like Stevie Nicks on a Zedd track. We simply adore Naomi’s voice. Previous single ‘Tenderly’ still on heavy rotation here too.

 

Call Me Loop – Strike

23 May

Call Me Loop has brought her boppiest bop for some time with ‘Strike’. It would actually sit very nicely on the also rather good Dagny EP which just dropped or indeed one of the last two Carly Rae Jepsen albums – it’s that level of pop brilliance.  This new one has a walloping chorus which postively strikes (sorry!) like lightning (as cunningly depicted on the artwork!!.

Ricky Wilde – Hearts Start Beating/Scarlett Wilde – Synchronise (SJBravo Remix) (from Synth Songs Of Hope, Vol 1)

23 May

Those lovely (and super generous peeps) at Aztec Records just released a synthpop dream of a compilation with a donation being given to a nursing charity for every purchase made.

The label explain:

“Our first ever Charity Compilation is in aid of Nurses Worldwide.

Half of the proceedings will be donated to the International Council of Nurses (through their Florence Nightingale International Foundation), which supports the advancement of nursing education, research and support for nurses families.”

It’s pretty much a synthwave who’s who, as well as some surprises – such as the appearances of T&D’s besties Ricky Wilde and his daughter Scarlett. Ricky’s track ‘Hearts Start Beating’ shows he can do a pretty mean Neil Tennant impression and the track also has a classic Cut Copy feel to it as well. Scarlett’s ‘Synchronise’ is given a twinkling synthwave makeover by SJBravo, adding a fragility to Scarlett’s kick ass attitude (we mean kick ass in a good way BTW!).

Tom Aspaul – W.M (Midnight Pool Party Remix)

23 May

Tom just delivered the remix package for his discotastic ‘W.M’ single. In addition to the extended version of the single there’s also a tropibop take by those Midnight Pool Party fellas. Both new mixes as well as the original are all pretty much perfect.

Dua Lipa – Break My Heart (Jax Jones’ Midnight Snack Remix)

23 May

We’ve already said it that Dua’s ‘Future Nostalgia’ album is going to be the most remixed record of the year and so many of the reworks we’ve had already have been sensational. Here’s another and it’s ace! Jax Jones fires up the BPMs and goes for full on house disco.
