We've been closely following Kiesza since her debut single 'Hideaway' got our attention this past spring. Her follow-up single 'Giant In My Heart' continued to build on the singer's success as she set out on a rigorous media tour to support her quickly rising star. Over the past weekend, Kiesza released 'No Enemiesz' to tease the release of her album, Sound of a Woman, on October 21st.

Kiesza: 'No Enemiesz'

Kiesza certainly picks up where she left off in 'Hideaway' and 'Giant In My Heart' with 'No Enemiesz.' The track has a pulsing house beat complemented by piano keys in the chorus, all wrapped together with Kiesza's soulful vocals. The singer claims her debut album will contain not only dance and house influenced tracks, but you'll also hear grunge, rock and folk on Sound of a Woman. We're certainly excited to hear her debut release next month – but in the interim, be sure to catch her performing on Ellen on September 24th.

Groove Armada: 'Rescue Me'
 
Groove Armada has been around for nearly 20 years now and they still churn out instant classics at a rate most producers would only dream of. They’ve come a long way since the 90s, with an evolving sound that so far has been influenced by house, jazz, dub, pop, R&B, trip-hop and drum’n’bass.

 
2014 has been a prolific year for the British duo with the release of three EPs so far, including their latest Stairwell Felonies out now on Get Physical. The smash opener ‘Rescue Me’ brings back memories of old-time warehouse parties with its soulful elements, strong build-ups and ethereal breaks.

The 2 Bears, comprised of Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard and Raphael 'Raf Daddy' Rundell, have just released 'Get Out,' the opening track from their sophomore album, The Night is Young.

The track starts slowly, with a cadence that wouldn't feel out of place on a Hot Chip Album, but quickly builds and takes the listener on a journey to the dance floor. The track sets the stage nicely for the album's lead single, 'Angel (Touch Me),' which has had me grooving for several months now. The Night is Young releases on October 13th via Southern Fried Records

Even though these guys are electronic music producers, British duo Bondax have always made beautiful vocals (along with their skillful production) the centerpiece of their music. Last year, their track 'Giving It All' made it into the number two position of my top 10 tracks of 2013 here on Towleroad, and they're back yet again with another vocally-robust track, 'All I See'.

Bondax: 'All I See (Darius Remix)'

 Fellow Brit Tanya Lancaster provides the vocals this time for the single, which officially drops on September 7th.  French producer Darius remixed the track perfectly – adding in soulful, deep beats that suit the track beautifully.

The OXD Mirror: New Music by Midnight Magic, Full Intention, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, and more

Our love for Midnight Magic, Brooklyn's most prolific disco ensemble is unparalleled. Their live performances are, for the lack of a better word, epic, with lead singer Tiffany Roth's electric personality that can light up the entire room.  Their songs keep the lush spirit of orchestral disco alive, via their 9-piece band that spans different styles of disco and funk.

Midnight Magic: 'Night Flight'

 The band has new material soon to be released, a 5-track EP that will soon be out on Soul Clap Records. The lead single, 'Night Flight,' is already available and while it may feature slower beats than one would expect for the dancefloor, don't be fooled: it still can move hips and shake bodies like many tracks can't.

The OXD Mirror: Celebrate Summer with Goldroom, Moon Boots, Satin Jackets, Poolside, and more

Goldroom

BY OCCUPY THE DISCO / RU BHATT 

L.A.'s Goldroom (Josh Legg) stays true to form with his latest single, 'Till Sunrise.' Legg's lush production provides a glistening backdrop for Mammals' dreamy vocals, creating an almost perfect tune to enjoy these last few days of summer.

 In an unorthodox move, Legg also released the vocal stems for 'Till Sunrise' a few days before premiering the actual track, in an effort to induce even more creativity among remix producers. We're looking forward to hearing those different iterations, and thereby extending our summers, as well.

'Till Sunrise' sets the stage for today's playlist, which is chock-full of summery tunes. Listen AFTER THE JUMP...
