Ora The Molecule – Salé

28 Jul

It’s fair to say you probably won’t hear another song about salt today (this single is a celebration of that vital mineral!). Ora The Molecule have struck gold again with another example of quality indie electronica. They mix their languages throughout this one throwing in French, Spanish, Italian and English (all delivered by a Norwegian!). Whilst very quirky in all the right ways it’s not that far removed from being an alternative Eurovision entry – also meant as a compliment.


Coda Conduct – Leaving Home

28 Jul

Merging rap and electronica effortlessly yet again, here is the new smash from Coda Conduct. ‘Leaving Home’ will resonate with anyone who is on a journey of self discovery which starts with getting as far away as you can from where you grew up.

Octo Octa – Spin Girl, Let’s Activate!

28 Jul

Here’s some glittery, squelchy house for you taken from Octo Octa’s forthcoming ‘Resonant Body’ album (due in September). This is one of her most uplifting tunes so far and there’s a little hint of Deee-lite on this epic opus.

Rider – Jump

26 Jul

You will not hear a happier or more joyful record today than ‘Jump’ by Rider. We loved her last single and this one just exudes pure unadulterated positivity which, let’s face it, after the week we have had in the UK we all could do with right now. Loving the big unabashed 80s pop pomp on display here. Wonderful – this should be on prescription!

The Knocks – New York Luau

26 Jul

Those floorfiller killers The Knocks return with a 3 track single packed to the rafters with jams that absolutely wallop. As ever there is funk-a-bangin’ everywhere you turn especially on ‘New York Luau’. See also ‘No Requests’ which similarly goes off. Get your evening/morning ramped up.

Chloe Martini – All Or Nothing (featuring MAAD)

26 Jul

Loving Chloe’s oh so smooth new EP ‘Daydream’ which arrived earlier today. The immediate highlight is this new jack swing chanelling funky jam with MAAD entitled ‘All Or Nothing’ which is giving us Bell Biv DeVoe and Jade vibes.

Tessa Violet – Crush (Le Youth Remix)

26 Jul

Le Youth goes for Stranger Things meets daytime disco on the remix for Tessa’s ‘Crush’, which is taken from her ‘Bad Ideas (Act One)’ EP which is out today. See also a boppy little remix from Viceroy on the track ‘I Like (the idea of) You’.

Gothic Tropic – Drunk On A Rhythm

25 Jul

Another artist returning with new material is Gothic Tropic. New single ‘Drunk On A Rhythm’ shows a gentle disco side albeit a little wonky (which we adore). Loving the insturmentation which glides in towards the back end of the track – really delicious.

Molly Beanland – In The Blue Forever

25 Jul

Can it really be 5 years since ‘Night Dreams’ and ‘Real Life’? Well it appears so. Molly returns and on the opening few seconds of vocals you’d be forgiven for thinking you were listening to Kate Bush. Once the beats kick in it’s more Banks territory and still very much a soundtrack for your nighttime pacing around a derelict edge of the city industrial estate. Sinister and foreboding but pop, right?

Poolside – Can’t Stop Your Lovin’ (featuring Panama)

24 Jul

The kings of daytime disco are back with their first brand new music in yonks. They team here with the also very cool Panama for a slice of breezy yachtpop with some delicate funk leanings. Everything we wanted and more.
