Sau Poler is another addition to a line of amazing Barcelona-based producers/djs, he’s kicking off summer by self- releasing a football-inspired 3-track EP “Dribble” which drops on June 23rd, right after the solstice. The EP is three groovy tracks that dribbles between deep house and Balearic.

“The Dribble EP is an ode of 3 club tracks inspired by classic football players and some memorable footballs that I grew up playing with. Each track has a connection with those pieces of leather: “Etrusco” refers to the rawness and strength, “Questra” the evolution and euphoria, and “Mitre” the magic and unique spirit of English football.”

A huge premiere for us here today coming from Spanish producer/dj UNER who is at the forefront of melodic house/techno with recent releases on labels such as Suara, Bedrock, Culprit, Saved Records and Sasha’s imprint Last Night On Earth.

His latest track is forthcoming on US label Sol Selectas (spearheaded by American artist Sabo) and it’s part of their “Summer Sol II” compilation which drops tomorrow June 21st.

The track is entitled “The Sound of Sand” and features the vocal offerings of Ido Segal, on it we hear UNER going off into a slightly deeper and more warm balearic direction but rest assured if you’re a fan of his melodic sound you won’t be disappointed.

UK based label Future Disco Records have been renowned for their iconic compilations since 2009, with an A&R reputation for compiling and releasing credible collections and the digital landscape giving labels more freedom than ever before, it seems like the perfect time to start unleashing singles on the label, keeping to the 21st Century Disco sound they have carefully crafted since day one.

The first release on the label comes from Belgian producer Vhyce, who makes funk laden house and delivers a remastered version of his banging dancefloor hit single “Just To Make Me” which includes brand new remixes from ONSRA (Exploited) and Till Von Sein (SUOL, Dirt Crew Recordings).

Stelios Vassiloudis is an Athens-based artist who has released under various other monikers and aliases over the course of the last 5 years, racking up an impressive discography. Now he teams up with Hamburg-based dj/producer Nils Nuernberg for a fierce EP release entitled “Chair In Orbit” which is released via Poker Flat on June 16th.

The title track relies on heavily arpeggiated melodies and a precise sound design which launches the listener straight into the atmosphere. The track is propelled forward with a driven groove that somehow manages to stay deeply cosmic while at the same time activating the dancers.

Welsh artist and production machine Rachel K Collier delivers an ultra modern electro-pop meets house track with the release of her new new single “Rust” (will be released on July 14th via NIF Records/AWAL).

“The title ‘Rust’ was inspired initially by my old bike! I used it as a working title at first, but instead of ditching it, I had an idea of how I could transform it into a concept that I could really relate too. Everybody goes through good times and bad times in their relationships with the person closest to them. If issues are swept under the carpet and left unsaid, resentment slowly builds and so does a dark residue between two people. Rust is about recognizing that you have to make a conscious effort and do whatever it may take to keep your relationship fresh. The lyrics then kind of wrote themselves, but I spent a good haul in the studio refining the production -producing in Ableton gives you so much creative scope, I love it, it’s easy to get lost in infinite possibilities! The track began with the metallic riff which I then harmonized with a few chords -the beat followed along with the chorus and then finally the verses. I think the song has this kind of metallic timbre, which happened very organically as it was not a conscious decision to blend the lyrical content and sound design.”

Amsterdam-based duo Black Girl/White Girl are back just in time for the summer season with their new single track “Feelin'”, which drops tomorrow Friday June 9th via Italian label Lapsus Music and their compilation “Off Week 2017”. The track is a steadfast, straight up pumping and stealthy dark house bomb with an addictive vocal sample.

Major DJ support already on this coming from the likes of Santé & Sidney Charles, Luca Donzelli, Max Chapman, Roland Clark, Mark Jenkyns, Yousef, Hector Couto and more.

3 months later and I still find myself singing this one in the shower. “Dreamlove” is a high energy house track with upbeat indie disco flair. Four talented vocalists and producers- SoCo, Caden Jester, Lavin, & Christopher Blake- came together to create this infectious gem on Casual Jam Records.
