Tourist – Patterns ft. Lianne La Havas [London, UK]

Electronic / House

Not to be confused with Perth based alt-rock band Tourist, we’re talking about the UK based genius who changed the face of this HAIM track. Borrowing Lianne La Havas’s amazing vocals, the UK producer has created a subtle danceable sound that is almost begging to be remixed. The Patterns EP Is due for release on the 20th (today) in the UK via Method Records (Disclosure, Sam Smith) and 22nd via Monday Records in the States. Fans of Disclosure, T.E.E.D, and SBTRKT will dig this.

Don’t Wanna Dance (Goldroom Remix) – MØ [Los Angeles, US]

Nu-Disco / Electronic Pop / House

If the track is not enough of a clue, hit play and dive into 5 minutes of hip moving obligation. Originally by Denmark songstress (read like a cow would) who has been featured countless time on our blog and many others in the recent months, it sure was a surprise to see Los Angeles based DJ/Producer Goldroom (Josh Legg) renowned for synth heavy electropop touch this up. Last heard his remix work on St Lucia’s All Eyes On You from their phenomenal debut LP When The Night which in all honestly I felt dulled in comparison to the original. This track here however is a completely different story. Find those dancing shoes and get on looping this.

TÂCHES – Malindi ft. Jessica Sophie [London, UK]

Deep House / Electronic / Lounge

Myseterious UK electronic producer TÂCHES is back at it again with another lounge-worthy track featuring the vocals of 16 year old songstress Jessica Sophie who seems to be making more and more appearances in the electronic scene. This is the second time she’s worked with TÂCHES; but she’s also been two timing with another UK producer KAASI. Check that out here, it’s pretty great. Malindi‘s probably not exactly the track to get all down and sweaty to, but the playful synths sure are enough to get your head bobbing. Fans of Ta-Ku or Sango should be able to jump right into this.

“Hello. These are some sounds I made late at night. I can’t say I was tired but I was certainly dreaming.”

Check out all of TÂCHES and show some support here. plus FREE DL!

Major Lazer x Spazzkid – Getting To Know De Floor [Los Angeles, US]

Electronic / Dancehall / Experimental

He mixes so hard, them birds migrate.

If y’all aren’t familiar with Spazzkid, it is the creative outlet of Los Angeles based Mark Redito and his friends. I think he’s originally from the Phillipines but who knows!

His music blends video game sounds, Skype sounds! (as you heard) as well as percussive synth pop and even
j-pop influences to create his own unique vision of candy electro. (Sure seems pretty in nowadays huh? with the rise of Chvrches and HAERTS)

Just released less than a week ago, this track has quickly become a guilty pleasure of mine. Getting To Know De Floor was actually some sort of joke spinoff from infamous (hope there’s no disagreement here!) Pon De Floor and Getting To Know You from Spazzkid’s recent album Desire released in the April of 2013 which only took him about a year to make but is simply stunning. From production, to artwork, and multi-cultural influences, it’s simply intriguing.
If you’ve not heard his album and you like his sound,  name your price and get it off his band camp here.
Yes i’m talking to y’all fans of Cashmere Cat, Biblo or even Four Tet.

Chromeo – Come Alive ft. Toro Y Moi [Montreal, CA / Columbia, US]

Electro Pop / Funk 

With the week long 40 degree heatwave here in Melbourne, tracks like this make the sweating worth it. A little under four minutes, but just so, so much funk. When it’s said that good things come in small packages they weren’t kidding. Following the raging success of the previous two tracks from their forthcoming LP White Women (namely Over Your Shoulder and Sexy Socialite), the electro funk duo does not lose any momentum. I mean, this pretty much topped their track Night by Night in 2009 which an almost Daft Punk-esque robotic sound. This here ended 2013 right and will be most definitely kept on rotation throughout 2014!
