NA009-SELECTION

Forthcoming May 25th on Nice Age, the young label helmed by Oxford darling, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, brings you the “Tokyo EP” from American producer, MANIK. There is much to admire about this release, with each of it’s three tracks offering a modern interpretation of classic, Chicago psychedelia. Here, we have your exclusive, first look at the closing title, “Silver,” a bubbling, acid house number with a boat load of hand claps and warbley 303 riffs.

Buy the release HERE.

Goldroom drops the first single from his new EP, “It’s Like You Never Went Away,” and it might seem a bit familiar. “Embrace” got some heavy air play awhile back when he did a “Premix Competition” by releasing the isolated vocal stem for the public to remix and interpret without the aid of the full track. Now, the LA powerhouse comes back with a new version featuring the vocal talents of George Maple, who also co-wrote the tune.

Dutch deep-disco-darlings, Fouk, come correct with their latest EP for Detroit Swindle’s imprint, Heist Recordings. A duo comprised of producers Junktion and Daniel Leseman, Fouk combine their powers of exquisite sample usage, powerful, heavy-swung rhythms and smooth chord progressions to bring us the “Kill Frenzy EP.” Three tracks make up this brilliant outing that begins with the title track, a super groovy stepper that rolls like the finest cheeba. Next up is “Lefty’s Bar,” which mixes jazzy chords and a rock-steady beat to keep the dance-floor poppin’ while closing title, “Ken Sent Me,” is deeper, more melancholic and just as sublime.

Available now of 12″ and digital.
