Already getting play from the likes of Dimitri From Paris, Zimmer, Moullinex, Munk, C90s, Xinobi and ATTAR!, Piece By Piece is set to blow up over the summer.

Tasking in a bit of House, a bit of Acid and a bit of Disco, Oliver turn in this Deep masterpiece with Techy bass that never looses the groove. Rising synth burblings and gradually emphasising stabs lead the way in this hypnotic six minutes. Designed purely to keep a crowd rocking the track works some special magic with hit’s huge breakdown. Simple but effective.

Sweden’s top ElectroPop producer, and one half of Sally Shapiro, Johan Agebjörn has whipped up this resounding reMix of Annie’s stance against Russia’s anti-gay laws, Russian Kiss. Retitled Sweedish Kiss (there’s also a Norwegian Kiss by Skatebård) the track is out now on Annie’s own label, Totally.
Johan goes all Sci-Fi Italo and Spacecoder with his version of the track.. A rolling arpeggiated bassline chugs underneath the tune, giving it it’s power, while floaty, galactic snyths swirl around the track. Annie’s vocals are given the vocoder treatment, making her heartfelt mantra sound like a robotic order. Otherworldly grooves from Johan here.

Here’s the latest tune from Bristol SynthWavers Miles Prower. Once again enlisting the help of Coralie Kate for vocal duties they present Virtually Reality. The title track of their forthcoming new EP, due out in summer, the track bodes well for a release packed with nostalgic flair.
This one’s got a classic sound, with just a hint of that Euphoric Trance vibe that Mile Prower tend to inject their tracks with. Leading in with some slick Italo bass sounds and the kind of dreamy keys that the French arm of the SynthWave massive are so well known for, the track soon introduces Coralie’s sweet vocals and waves of lush synths. As the tune progresses the synths build leaving the 80s for a full-on 90s hands-in-the-air moment.

Happiness Cage is the new side-project from Irish SynthWaver Adeyhawke, who you may remember for hitting the highest point in out Top 20 tracks of 2014 for an instrumental, within the top ten. As this Happiness Cage alter-ego he’s about to release a new EP in the next couple of month, but is already previewing tracks on SoundCloud. Check out UHF Blaze below.
UHF Blaze is a beautiful cacophony, a chaotic collision of Italo, 80s Dance, Electro-House, ChipTune, even Complextro (remember that?) that all comes together to form a compelling whole. Racing beats, spiky synth basslines, Industrial purcussion, and chirpy melodies all keep the energy relentlessly high; but the track never feels like it’s getting away from you. Seeped in nostalgia enough to feel comfortable amidst the juggernaut groove.

Earlier this month Felix Bloxsom A.K.A. the awesome Plastic Plates released his new single. Mixing up his luscious synthetic Disco with a little ElectroPop flair from good friend Sam Sparro, Stay In Love really is a slice of Pop excellence that, given the right exposure, could see Plastic Plates getting the recognition he heartily deserves, even charting.
Sparro’s voice glides like silk over this Italo inspired tune. The synths are warm and rich, particularly the bounce heave bassline, and the beats suitably House-y. This is probably the most Poppy Plastic Plates has gone to date, but that doesn’t mean this tune isn’t perfectly fit for the dancefloor. Like a chameleon, it could adapt itself beautifully to either radio play or peak time action.

Partyfine is just full of collaborations, isn’t it? most of them involving label boss Yuksek. So it’s no surprise that the imprint’s latest release, the forthcoming Don’t Miss, sees the man himself teaming-up with the one and only Alex Metric and Aussie producer-of-the-moment Anna Lunoe. Yuksek and Metric bill themselves as The Alexanders and the track broken ground on Annie Mac’ show this past weekend.
Don’t Miss is a cheeky House juggernaut. Driven by a mind-bendingly infectious Italo flavour bassline, the track is a full-on Electro-House stomper the like of which you don’t see so much these days, making us feel nostalgic for the Electro-House boom days of 2007/2008. Spikey synths and abrasive burbles rub shoulders with comfortable retro stabs and Anna’s mantra vocals to deliver one of those peak time anthems.

The Alexanders’ Don’t Miss is released 24th February.

The latest release from New Your Indie Disco label DFA comes in the form of the new single from their jack-of-all-trades The Juan MacLean. Get Down (With My Love) features vocals from Nancy Whang and drops on digital and one-sided vinyl next week. Prepare for some musical madness.
Get Down (With My Love) is a brutally bouncy, ecclectic Disco House track with heavy Italo overtones. The big synth bassline itself lends the track it’s particular swing. Quirky leads and syncopated keys swim over a tumbling House beat conjuring an energetic, frantic feel. Nancy’s vocals are just perfect amongst the chaotic Boogie making the track even more compelling. More genius work from The Juan Maclean.

Here is the first track Norwegian Cosmic Disco king Todd Terje is teasing us with from his recently announced forthcoming début album. It’s Album Time (great title!) drops in April and includes a collaboration with Bryan Ferry (who Todd amazingly reMixed). This tune, Delorean Dynamite (the man has a knack for names!) is a great taste of what’s to come.
Injecting a little retro Italo into his spaced out SacndiDisco style, Delorean Dynamite rocks a powerful 80s-esque arpeggio. The galactic synths glide over the track, which has the sense of spaciousness that Terje does best. As the track progresses we’re treated to wicked little Disco licks and soaring leads that rise toward the tracks emotional finale. Pure dancefloor excitement.

Todd Terje’s It’s Album Time is released 7th April.

The Native Circles EP is the second release on Pole Jam Vinyl, the vinyl imprint from Pole Position Recordings and Satin Jackets’ Glam Jam Artists. As with their first release, this EP is a multi-artist showcase that once again features the work of young Russian producer Deep Sound Express as he introduces us to another four minutes of Cosmic House intensity.
Mixing up a powerhouse of an Italo bassline with a smooth House beat; Deep Sound Express gradually build a compelling dancefloor groove before using this backing to unleash a torrent of swirling Chill sounds. With Balearic guitar and Cosmic synth in tow, Deep Sound Express bring both laid-back vibes and pounding, floorfilling, rhythms to one track. Did we mention that the bassline is utterly infectious?
