It’s the season of giving; a fact that hasn’t escaped one of our favourite producers of Disco and House, Sweedish groovemeister Sweedish artists, ODahl. The man is giving away his latest tune that caps off a year where we’ve seen a little more of ODahl after a quiet stretch. Tunes like Your Love, released earlier this year on Pole Position, have been a bit of a constant in our headphones around these parts. Tuck in to his latest jam, 37 Celsius.
ODahl serves up a warm and involving deep sound on 37 Celsius. Blending several House disciplines into one comfortable whole, the Swede brings a little Deep, a little Bass, a little Chicago and a little Disco into seven minutes of smooth-as-silk dancefloor gold. Vocal snatches pepper the track, building the atmosphere, whole ODahl’s solid beats keep the groove. Hold tight for the four minute mark where things get a tad warehouse.

Kick start you week with this storming reMix from Chicago Housemeister Rogue Vogue. The latest work to be morphed by his retro sound is the current single from Los Angeles IndiePop singer Hayley Kiyoko, This Side Of Paradise. Everything Rogue Vogue’s produced to date has been gold. The Chicago resident has taken his city’s classic trademark sound and cranked it up to 11. Check out his latest.
Rogue Vogue doesn’t disappoint with his reMix of This Side Of Paradise. He’s injected a little Deepness into his sound courtesy of some pulsating, subby, basses but all the elements we love from RV are present and correct. The droning stings, the massive piano hooks, the 909 hats, the relentless kicks all intertwine to serve up an in-your-face warehouse floorfiller. Kiyoko’s vocals make for a good accompaniment to the track, and RV show that he is just at home with a Pop arrangements as he is with sounds for strobelights. Let Rogue Vogue bring a little authentic Chicago to your Monday morning.

Here’s something to treat your ear to this weekend. Say hello to Hippo Disco. This trio are the newest additions to the electronic rumors family and we realised, shamefully, that we hadn’t properly introduced you. Roodmin, Oochi & Vinski are three Scots living in Tokyo (and Bali) who have slowly but surely been making a name for themselves; most recently having delivered a storming official reMix of Etienne De Cercy’s We, Computers. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for news of their début EP, and in the meantime check out two choice cuts.
Falling is pure Disco bliss. Effortlessly combining wicked Disco licks with dreamy Balearic keys, Falling has got both the groove and a euphoric sweep. There’s just no way you can resist being drawn into it;s six minute dancefloor dream. Hippo Disco have a knack of making ecclectic and left-field Disco that takes influences from anywhere and doesn’t play by the rules. If Answering Machine doesn’t prove that to you nothing will. Plus music nerd points, but minus cool points, if you know where the bassline comes from. Abrasive and funky as hell all at the same time. Hold tight for the EP!

This week one of Brooklyn’s finest purveyors of synthesizer goodness AIMES drops his new release via Wonder Stories. It’s a companion to his huge single of earlier this year, Burnin’ featuring five new versions of the tune. This new reMix collection brings together such talent as Auxiliary Tha Masterfader, A Copycat, Perdido Key, Rocco Desentis; and this grinding monster from London Electro hounds Tronik Youth.
As you’ll no doubt be aware, the original was a driving and summery House tune that featured some soulful vocals from NY resident Javi; this is completely flipped as Tronik Youth give the track an East London basement club vibe. A stuttering and ominous Electro rework that despite being abrasive and relentless retains a cheeky charm. Chainsaw synths and squealing leads replace the poolside sounds of the original as Tronik Youth put together a strobe-light oddessy for the early hours. Now there’s a Burnin’ for every occasion!

Röyksopp’s final release in the album format, the aptly titled The Inevitable End has been out as few weeks now and is looking set to be one of our favourite albums of the year. The first track taken from the record, Skulls, has now got it’s own music video. Imagine that!
Norwegian director and long time collaborator Stian Andersen delivers a suitably eerie clip. Cabin in the woods, Röyksopp style.
Röyksopp’s The Inevitable End is released on November.

The chairperson of the board Little Boots has shared two more songs from her forthcoming Business Pleasure EP. We’ve already moved to the lead tune, Taste It and it’s video; the next two out of a total of four tracks, continue to show off that fact that this looks set to be Boot’s most ecclectic release to-date. Check out the bottom of the post for a link to pre-order one of the fantastic vinyl packages. Engraved watches people!
Heroine is slightly more traditional Little Boots that the previously heard Taste It. Co-produced by MNDR’s Pete Wade the track has a lush 90s Dance-Pop feel with a hint of Nocturnes Deep House leanings and Victoria’s sweet vocal gliding across booming bass and warehouse snares. A completely different slant is taken by Pretty Tough, which is dangerously close to Trap and is strangely enchanting. Moody soundtrack synths grown over the skip-hop beat while Boot’s delivers a vocal performance unlike anything she’s done before. Like we said, this is one ecclectic release for Little Boots, but if there’s one thing we love to see it’s an artists flexing their musical muscles. Welcome to Victoria’s gun-show.
♫ Little Boots – Heroine

Little Boots’ Business Pleasure EP is released 1st December. Some very tasty indeed pre-order vinyl/poster/bag/digital watch!!! packages are available here.

Mistress of dreamlike floorfillers Maya Jane Coles makes her return to Anja Schneider’s Mobilee this week In the 3 ½ years since her last she’s gone from strength to strength, including releasing one of our favourite albums of recent times, Comfort. The From The Dark EP features three utterly intoxicated tune, including this one; the lead track. Check it out.
Including some vocal work from French singer Moggli, From The Dark is an enigmatic and haunting tune that revels in Maya’s uncanny knack of being able to make deep, ominous tracks feel unbelievably warm. Low grooves and subby bass dominate the soundtrack alongside an unrelenting booming kick; while Moggli’s throaty, soulful vocals seem to envelop the music and swirl around it. This is stuck on repeat.
