Welcome back to another rump-shaking edition of That New Nu! I know this refrain is feeling tired but the level of disco production these days does not cease to amaze me. After feeling like this week was a little slow on releases I felt seriously overwhelmed when I saw just how many I actually wound up combing through. Well I’ve got to bust right through this, so let’s dive in!

•Grabbing headlines this week is future deep house legend Zimmer who has teamed up with Pallace to bring his newest original ‘Saturday Love’. We’re hearing rich productions and compelling vocals drive us right through this heater. If this doesn’t blow up some clubs on Saturday I don’t know what will.

Du Tonc has a propensity for taking us right back to the 80s era of glorious synth-pop and their latest ‘Animal’ continues the trend. Each track from these guys seems to further anchor them into a musical space that needs filled, at least in my listening patterns, much like Kavinsky fulfills your need for rad driving music.

•You knew I was going to give some love to The Knocks. With their latest tune they’ve remixed Tove Lo’s ‘Not On Drugs’, it’s a decidedly darker turn from what we’ve seen from them lately but keeps those Knocking elements we all love. Searing synth swirls bounce beautifully off of Tove’s vocals and the break down is ready to get everyone’s hands in the air.

This track is undeniably infectious as Lucia takes us over as so few lyricists can.

• Good Great Fine OK is an artist that I just discovered thanks to this collab withSt. Lucia. The original ‘Something To Believe In’ and has some serious potential to put these guys on the map in a big way. It’s decidedly indie, but undeniably infectious as Lucia takes us over as so few lyricists can.

• My conclusion about J-Art & Madan is that they’re just incredible DJs who decide to rerub tracks exclusively to fit the needs of their sets, solo plays be damned. A mentality that’s impossible not to respect with this remix ‘Uncover’. The vocals here have a stiff Rihanna-ish flavor, and the progressive line preps it perfectly for a french dance floor.

• Speaking of mysterious frenchman, Knuckle G is back at it with his remix of ‘Just Stay’. It’s another solid foray out into the world for this up-and-coming producer, with funk abounding in all directions.

It’s chilled in exactly the right way to put your disco mind at ease.

•Finally we have the track that you’ll cap off possibly every night this week with. Eau Claire has taken a swing at Tensnake’s ‘Feel Of Love’. The lovely original vocals are largely preserved and subsequently turned up to 11 with dancing pads and rodgers-esque guitar riffs. It’s chilled in exactly the right way to put your disco mind at ease.

That’s it for this week, thanks so much for stopping by once again! As always I’ll be back next Friday, but if you don’t want to wait just follow me on SoundCloud, and if you missed it be sure to check out my exclusive interview and mix from the very under the radar I.O.X from earlier this week. Happy Friday!
