The original version of the track “Feel Me” (to be released tomorrow Friday September 21st via Belgian label Eskimo Recordings) from Paris based producer Simon Says is a sleazed up monster of a new wave/pop track (a cover of British synthpop band Blancmange and their 1982 album track), fellow French producer/dj Yuksek ups the the disco elements and the cosmic synth stabs to make it lift off into deep space.

Interesting new single from Mod Sun is out now on Bella Thorne‘s Filthy Fangs imprint. “Burning Up” blends and distorts genre boundaries, showcasing the wild creativity that encompasses Mod Sun whose entrepreneurial spirit seems to know no bounds. Catch Mod Sun on his forthcoming Burning Up tour. Full dates and tickets can be found here.

This song came out of me like vomit. I’m not at all glorifying the idea of making songs fast….the process is important. BUT, I am extremely adamant about letting the song take me places instead of forcing it to go somewhere with me. “Burning Up” is a perfect example of just that. The vocals + lyrics came out at the same time + Within 10 minutes the entirety of that song was created + ended. I love that feeling. Music is magic + u can’t tame magic.” – Mod Sun

London producer Redinho returns with new single track “Square 1” which features the hypnotising vocal offerings of Grammy winning New Zealand artist Kimbra over a Timbaland-esque r&b beat. The track is taken from his new single “Mmm mmm/Square 1” which drops via Roya tomorrow Friday September 7th.

“I wrote this track with Kimbra a few years ago when we were jamming in London. Those sessions produced Sweet Relief, a track I also wrote and produced with her, and also Square One. The initial loop was the result of jamming with my Talkbox, Kimbra messing with her Voice Live skills, and me sampling the whole thing as we went a long. My brother John Calvert was also in the room and fleshed out some chords. Kimbra put down a brilliant guide vocal, then we did some back and forths online as she wrote the lyrics.” – Redinho

“We wanted to encompass that hypnotizing, relentless but sensual magnetic dance between two people who can’t break a cycle of attachment. There’s a real toughness to this song and although the subject matter is a bit heartbreaking, I love how this song captures the nuance of all those different emotions within. We wanted it to feel claustrophobic and almost uncomfortably intimate, to echo that kind of relationship where there is no space to breathe. I love how Tom captures a really metallic, sterile feeling to his sounds while exploring such lush spectrums of organic instrumentation too. To me he’s one of the most creative producers and writers because he is not scared to be very minimal but he is meticulous about the sounds we chose, to make sure each one of them tells an individual story and serves the physical feeling we want our audience to feel.” – Kimbra
