I’ve been a fan of Anoraak for quite a long time and I remember being so excited to finally see him perform live a couple years back in Washington, DC. So it’s certainly nice to hear a new release from him. “Odds Are Good” is a finely crafted dreamy indie dance tune that’s minimal yet beautiful all the way through. “Odds Are Good” is the opening track from Eskimo Recordings’ new compilation “The Orange Collection”, the fourth installment of its ongoing series based around colors.

Cue the marinbas on Templeton’s latest offering, a remix of The Game’s “How We Do.” Following the release of his “All Day” rework, Templeton kicks off his summer with this sun-soaked flip. An array of driving percussion layers trade off nicely with 50 Cent’s vocal cuts during the chorus delivering an uptempo house vibe.

Take a trip down memory lane with PLS&TY’s latest release, a remix of Outkast’s 2003 hit “Roses.” Here PLS&TY puts some reverb on Andre 3000’s vocals along with a slick combination of drums and bass with a huge sounding result. Be sure to grab the free download of this one!

BenZel (Benny Blanco and Two Inch Punch’s Ben Ash) continues to flex their diverse production talents with their latest release “Waiting…..” featuring rising vocal talent Ben Abraham. Anchored by finger snaps, “Waiting” packs some big room punch with its dynamic layers of synths and distorted vocals. Then very suddenly at the 2:20 mark, the track shifts into a piano-driven soulful R&B number that will have you pressing play again on BenZel’s collaboration with Jessie Ware.
