Also, Little Dragon’s new album Nabuma Rubberband. Trust me it’s important.

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.

Salt Ashes – Somebody [Brighton, UK]

Synth Pop / Nu-Disco / Funk

Still residing in the land of scare internet, this was shared with me by a dear friend of mine, I did not expect to love this as much as I did. Emerging UK artist Salt Ashes will most definitely be a strong addition to the revival of the Nu-Disco genre. Not much to her name but a lot of promise and expectations will definitely follow such a strong debut.
2014 you’re looking good so far!

There’s not much on her soundcloud as of now but follow her for updates here!

Perfume Uniform – Cologne [Cologne, DE / Hordaland, NO]

Synth Pop / Electro / Tech-House  / Experimental / Nu Disco / Lo-Fi / Acoustic

Being a self-proclaimed music website has its perks. This means that we get loads of submissions from musicians themselves instead of having to go through the tedious (yet rewarding) search process ourselves. However, more times than not these submissions are not exactly what we’re looking for.

That’s why Perform Uniform’s EP Cologne was such a pleasant surprise. Running through the entire EP was like an easter egg hunt with bewildering versatility at every corner. At the risk of exaggerating but with sincere disbelief, this is possibly the most versatile set of tracks I’ve heard in quite a while if not up till now. Not only did the EP consist of so many different genres, each of the tracks themselves were genre-spliced. So much so that calling it experimental would be a massive understatement. Apparently the Norwegian/German trio have been working on the EP since 2006; but if you think you’ve heard anything like it, be prepared to stand corrected. I’d try to define their music with a blend of synth pop, electro, tech-house, disco and strangely enough acoustic. But using a fusion of familiar names like Michael Jackson, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Kavinsky, and Crystal Castles might paint a clearer picture. Make sure you run through the entire set, the stunning inconsistency is almost as much a novelty as it is a pleasure.

Enough said, I’ll let the music speak for itself.

Purchase the entire EP at your own price off bandcamp here and follow them at their soundcloud here.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. – If You Didn’t See Me (Then You Weren’t On The Dancefloor) [Detroit, US]

Indie pop/ Electronic / Nu Disco

No they’re not NASCAR drivers.

Detroit based indie electronic duo Dale Earnhart Jr. Jr. comprises of Daniel Zott and Joshua Epstein. They’re known for flamboyant performances (inclusive of costumes) and tracks that get you up and moving. In a boogie shoes sorta way. I’ve always visualized them as the LMFAO of funk. Their music consists of airy vocals and intricate melodies coupled with synth beats, electric guitar picking; and unless I’m mistaken, xylophones. The general atmosphere of their music is playful, energetic and perfect for some non-sleazy dancing. (Sorry Lover boy) This new track however is a bit different from what I’d expected, it sounds a bit like Absofacto up till the 52 second mark then transits to a more STRFKR-esque cheerful atmosphere. As an audiophile it’s great to see that they’re exploring new genres and obviously succeeding at doing so.

If You Didn’t See Me (Then You Weren’t On The Dancefloor) is the band’s newest single to be released in their upcoming Patterns EP on the 16th of April. If you like what you’ve heard follow them at their soundcloud here.

Below’s their new track and 2 others good ones thrown in for your listening pleasure (:
