There has been a big commotion around the Kolour LTD camp on this, the eve of largest release to date. The forthcoming, 3 x 12″ LP entitled “Tale Of 2 Cities” is a special package with an exceptionally curated A-list of contributors from the deep-disco scene which includes such luminaries as Eddie C, Frank Booker and Sleazy McQueen… plus fresh faces such as Vincenzo De Bull & Halve Soul, Napoleon and LeBlanc.

Here, we debut LeBlanc’s offering with the bittersweet and supremely funky, “We Can Fly.” A filtered, Rhodes piano sample sets the tone… topped off with a hefty bassline, and hazy vocal snippets, we sail along at 35,000 feet before plunging head first in to break-laden, funk territory. The ominous clarinet riffs and acid flourishes call in the b-boys to take over the dance floor for a pair of extended “get down’s.” Ace tackle right here!

Following the release of his Moods EP back in May, Heroic Recordings starlet Dooqu is teaming up with vocalist Ashdown for his next single titled “Dust.”

“I really do believe Ashdown and I have managed to bring out the best elements from each of our skillsets,” Dooqu said when asked about his newest release and it’s clear to hear why he thinks so. The two have teamed up in the past and the effortless ebb and flow between top line and instrumental throughout “Dust” speak volumes of an innate chemistry between the two talents. Heroic Recordings has a knack for discovering promising, eclectic talent and Dooqu looks to be an artist worthy of the Swedish imprint’s endorsement.

Yet another Australian export that has been causing a stir across the scene with his work, the 19-year old Australian Just A Gent has amassed upwards of an eye-popping 45 million streams worldwide.

I’ve added quite a bit to that count this week after hearing “Rolling Dice,” one of the many stellar tracks released on the young Aussie’s The Stories To Tell EP, out now via Lokal Legend and Casablanca AUS. The 8-track EP also features stand-out tracks like “Loaded” and my personal favorite, “Sounds of her Mind.” The production is sophisticated, the vocals provide the perfect topline, and there’s an understated stylistic versatility throughout the EP – an impressive result achieved from two years of relentless creating and the drive to a make something that would stand the test of time.

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.

Detroit-based duo Gosh Pith is taking care of business prior to their massive upcoming fall tour schedule. Fusing a scintillating combination of electronic, hip-hop, and trap influences, the pairing’s originality is on full-display with their new single, “In My Car.”

It’s refreshingly difficult to pigeonhole this song into a single genre and that’s only one of the best parts about it. The vocals are smooth and subtle, yet the beat could easily bang on a proper set of speakers in the club. Fun fact: “In My Car” was crafted in one of Detroit’s oldest churches (re-purposed as a creative hub by a group of local musicians) after years of sitting vacant.

Since officially launching back in 2013, the Moving Castle collective, home to talents like Manila Killa, Chet Porter, Robokid + more, has quickly established itself as the prime destination for several of the dance music industry’s most eclectic, promising visionaries. Kid Froopy is the latest to join the ranks of the impressive Moving Castle roster and his newest release “BB” does not disappoint.

I’m sure you’ve felt that some people hurt too good to turn away from at times and love makes people work in mysterious ways. Between apps like Tinder and Bumble, the “art” of dating has become somewhat of a joke in the modern day and age. Kid Froopy hones in on the irony of it all and shows off his originality by manipulating his own vocals over warm and addictive guitar riffs, crisp snares, and colorful synth arpeggios to great effect. While Moving Castle may already have a star-studded roster, Kid Froopy is more than making his mark with his newest release.

Leo Stannard

UK multi-instrumentalist Leo Stannard drops his new single “In My Blood” as his first release on Black Butter Records (home of artists such as among others DJ Khaled, Wiley and Zara Larsson. His album is due to be released later this year), the track is huge one with a pulsating vibe and anthemlike appeal.

We can premiere the astounding remix by Copenhagen based producer Kant who spins it into a melodic, deep house masterpiece.
