Hailed by Neon Gold as “the logical heir apparent to The Knocks’ New York Disco throne,” Wingtip (Nick Perloff-Giles) has steadily released a stream of acclaimed singles over the last year. “Rewind,” is his latest and first collaborative effort with Sophie Strauss. Chilled out yet irresistibly catchy, the track comes at the perfect time of the year as Autumn begins and ushers in cooler weather.

Toronto-based producer Pusher has been teasing his debut EP “New Laces” over the summer first with the breakout crystalline single “Clear” featuring New York City based rising singer Mothica and today reveals “Fences”, a collaboration with indie pop artist CAPPA. “New Laces” is out on Black Butter Records now and you can purchase the EP here.

Electro-pop trio Dragonette announces their fourth studio album “Royal Blues”, a collection of 13 brand new songs out worldwide on November 11th. The second cut from the album, “Sweet Poison,” is a sleek late night pop gem that employs the prodigious production talents of fellow Torontonian La+ch, and features some magic dust from the UK’s Dada.

New Jersey native Donna Missal is electric in her third single “The Keeper”, a downtempo tune with a jazzy soulfulness that fits somewhere between the softness of Lana Del Rey and the strength of Amy Winehouse. Donna’s on tour this fall with a small run of dates starting at Riot Fest today.

Tour Dates:
Sept 2nd: Denver, CO @ Riot Fest
Sept 3rd: Seattle, WA @ Bumbershoot
Sept 8th: Los Angeles, CA @ Troubadour
Sept 17th: Chicago, IL @ Riot Fest

Washington, DC’s Young Summer continues to prove she’s got a penchant for writing lyrically rousing songs that linger in your head until the very last note. “Fallout” is the third cut from her EP and is a heartfelt slice of beautifully textured pop that’s sure to be reverberating around your headspace for the rest of the week.

Now prolific New York City based indie dance duo SOFI TUKKER recently announced a fall tour supporting St. Lucia after wrapping up dates with M83. They team up with Turkish producer Mahmut Orhan on a remix of their debut single “Drinkee,” a futuristic and melodic house rework that adds a layer of fluidity to the original.

Los Angeles / New York duo Viigo’s music is difficult to pin down. Inspired by Depeche Mode, Underworld and more, the pair’s music is packed with intense beats and big hooks, incorporating elements of pop, electronica and R&B. Their latest single “Party Lights” is a throwback to late 80’s / early 90s techno and sampled the hip-house track “It Takes Two.” Take a listen to “Party Lights” and their previous single “Paranoia.”

After sharing his smoky electro-pop debut single “love you with the lights on” earlier this summer, rising bi-coastal LA/NY artist morgxn reveals Savoir Adore’s dreamy rework of the undeniably catchy and euphoric original, with SA’s Paul Hammer adding his own flavor to create a swirling composition.​ This comes after previously releasing French producer Monsieur Adi’s re-imagining of the single, both of which you can listen to below.
