Hopefully you’re preparing to get knee deep in hot dawgs, and need a little nu disco libation to get things going. Well I’m hankering to get out there so let’s dive right in! Plus if you don’t like a song that brings in horns this strong, we can’t be friends. • Lemaitre have just laid one of my favorite tracks of the year on us, ‘Closer’ ft Jennie A is a testament to all that has raised these guys up. The production is absolutely enormous, and will likely be blowing the roofs off some clubs this weekend. Jennie’s vocals cool things off just a bit between peaks to make sure the hypetrain doesn’t run off the rails. Plus if you don’t like a song that brings in horns this strong, we can’t be friends. • Rufus tracks seem to come out infrequently and inconsistently but they’re always on fire when they drop. Their original ‘You Were Right’ is no exception. It’s rippling with all that is great about indie dance; it’s undemanding yet captivating, low key yet unexpectedly energetic, it’s chilling yet will feel right at home helping you get your tan on this weekend. • Luke Million has channeled his inner Kavinsky with his latest original ‘Fear the Night’ ft. Jessie Davidson, and I’m on board. Stepping away from his traditional disco pop sounds this track brings in a much darker side and utilizes similar driving synths to propel this track deep into your head. • Keljet once again have stuck to good ol’ fashioned disco reciped with their latest remixe of The Weeknd’s ‘I Can’t Feel My Face’. They bring in their signature trampoline-esque bass lines and let the soulful musings of The Weeknd really take shape. It feels like a classic disco track in every sense…except for the lyrics. This crew of young musicians have somehow managed to breathe more emotion and authenticity into this track than any I’ve heard before. • Thero & Taylor Wise have teamed up for a haunting rendition of ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ with vocals from Allison Weiss. A far cry from the destruction Feed Me classically unleashed on this track, and indeed a few steps down the block from Robyn’s original, this crew of young musicians have somehow managed to breathe more emotion and authenticity into this track than any I’ve heard before. Thero said he wasn’t tied to producing tropical in my recent interview with him, and this seems a great first step for him. Thanks again for tuning in. If you think I missed anything key this week or just want to say what’s up, come on over to my SoundCloud. Happy Friday!
