CM (Chloe Remix)/Angel - Rebotini/SCSI 9 - Kompakt

Featuring the dazzling, hypnotic disco workout from the excellent Chloe of Kill the DJ. Strong release on Kompakt!

The King of Anxiety - Petite Noir - Double Six

With a debut album ready to go on Double Six, Yannick Ilunga teases us with this solo-produced taster EP. And quite a thing of beauty it is too, echoes of Wild Beasts, Joy Division and Talking Heads, all overlaid through sparse productions that build and drop with equal measures of tension and harmony. In the legacy of emotive acts like Sebastien Tellier, a great signing for Double Six. 

Need You - Liz-E - SHG:LTD

Back for her second outing on the Shogun sister imprint, Liz-E leads with a homage to the old school. The low end is weighty with a damaging tone and a pattern that brings the track to the here and now. Classic Amen breaks fill the space, with a euphoric vocal sample thrown in for good measure. The nineties were the raving years, where the party music was peaking, so it’s not hard to see why this sound is making an almighty comeback.

Softy Soft Vol 1 - Dan Bodan - DFA Records

The first track from Bodan’s 'Soft' LP re-emerges under the production hands of CFCF and Draveng. The object of their affections is ‘Romeo’ and whilst CFCF adds structure, swing and charm, it's Draveng who reverbs out Bodan's neo soulful David Sylvian and Arthur Russell inspired tones for a darker, altogether more dubbed-out approach. Deep.
