Vonavi is a Ukrainian producer who making some of the most crazy, left-field Disco tunes you’ll have heard in a long time. He’s just about to release his début album through Keenhouse’s Sunlinxx label. The self-titled record is an ecclectic twelve track oddessy though dancefloor insanity and is pre-ceded but this free download of the record’s lead single, Travel Freak.
Travel Freak is the prefect vessel to show off the albums experimental attitude to dance music. Pinned down by a smooth Funk groove, the track plays with genre conventions and expectations by swinging from laid back poolside Disco vibes to avant-garde synthesizer freeform. This is Disco come experimental jazz and a must listen for fans of vintage progressive synthesizer works. Although the album has one foot on the dancefloor, the club might not be the best arena for it. Whist it might not contain any go to DJ weapons, it certainly makes for sweet Sunday listening.

While you’re here, check out this new Black Magic Disco freebie. We say freebie, it;s actually about four years old, but nonetheless is a spot on Dubby, Downtempo tune for relaxing in the sun to. That’s our day sorted.
Irish producer of spacious beats and The XX support act Mmoths is gearing up for the release of his new EP, Diaries, the lead track of which is a beautifully abrasive slice of edgy and atmospheric Electronica featuring the vocal talents of new XL Recordings signee Holly Miranda. All These Things.
It’s a smokey composition where drill-bit industrial sounds are morphed into something ethereal and magical, intertwining with a post-Chillwave, post-Dubstep soundscape and Miranda’s silky smooth vocal. Inhuman sounds suddenly become organic and flowing as the track seems to evolve naturally over it;s course. Like a song grown, rather than created. We can definitely see All These Things earning Mmoths a great deal of attention.
♫ Mmoths (Feat. Holly Miranda) – All These Things
All These Things is taken from Mmoths forthcoming new EP, Dairies, released 4th March.
The ElectroPop name on everyone’s lips right now, Glasgow three piece Chvrches (yes, we’ve all given in to the ‘v’ now…) have produced their first reMix. Time to see if their amazing production can hold up when dealing with other peoples songs as they take on ultraísta’s Gold Dayzz (for the fain of heart amongst our readership, I’ll save you the tension and let you know that yes, yes it does hold up).
ultraísta are a three piece with some kind of production like to Radiohead, I’ll be honest, we hadn’t heard of them, although further investigation revealed some quite nice indeed Downtempo and Electronica. enter Chvrches, though, to spice things up a little and open the track up to some of their rich, emotive electronics and they inject the tune with a roaring synth bass, snappy beats and melodies sharp as a knife. The hazy vocals of the original drift in and out of pulsating arpeggios as the whole song build and build to a truly euphoric finale. So…Chvrches can reMix too then…good to know.
♫ ultraísta – Gold Dayzz (Chvrches reMix)
ultraísta’s Gold Dayzz single is released 9th December.
