 MNEK - 'Wrote A Song About You'

2014 is quickly becoming 19-year-old  MNEK's year. Hot off the heels of 'Every Little Word' and his collaborations with Gorgon City and Kylie Minogue, Uzo Emenike follows up with the lead single from his upcoming album, 'Wrote A Song About You.' The song's classic '90s house sound complements the MNEK soulful vocals perfectly, proving yet again that the UK wunderkind's musical prowess can't be matched.

In perfect time to celebrate the summer sun, and of course their respective hometown shores, West Coast dance group Viceroy meets East Coast's Penguin Prison in the new summertime jam 'The Life'.

Viceroy: 'The Life feat. Penguin Prison'

These nudisco powerhouses joined together to create a poppy, uptempo track that has the perfect guitar-laden summer vibe.  The idea of cruising around in the sun with my convertible top down certainly sounds like "the life I want," as the lyrics go, but of course with this song as part of my summer cruising playlist.

Let's get more summery and soulful, AFTER THE JUMP...

Danish producer Kölsch became known by the piano-based tech house hit 'Der Alte,' and is now back with a new release on Kompakt Records.

Kölsch: 'Cassiopeia'

 ‘Cassiopeia,’ takes cue from similar piano riffs, with the addition of a lush, emotional string arrangement that elevates the track to an euphoric state. This is a song with a lot of potential for establishing Kölsch as one of the next big names in house music; just reading the commentary on the Soundcloud here show the immense excitement around this track.

The OXD Mirror is a weekly music column brought to you by the boys of OCCUPY THE DISCO (OXD), a New York City based collective created by three music lovers, Ru Bhatt, Josh Appelbaum, and Tad Haes, who want to share their love for disco, house and dance music with the world. 

Kiesza's lead single, 'Hideaway,'  already in heavy rotation on many summer playlists, is well on its way to topping the charts worldwide. The Canadian dance starlet has followed up to her breakthrough 'Hideaway' video with another must see video for her latest single, 'Giant In My Heart.' Not only does the song prove Kiesza is no flash in the pan, the video also does not disappoint. It follows the story of a man that lives dual lives, one that does not make him happy and one that does. Sound familiar? With these two hits under her belt, Kiesza is building some high expectations, but I have full faith she'll resonate with gay audiences and deliver a fantastic album later this year.

Happy Pride, Towleroad readers!  As we celebrate the progress LGBT people have made since the Stonewall Riots, we also celebrate the rich culture our people have cultivated over the years - which includes the popularization of disco, high-NRG and house music.  We have always kept on dancing even in the face of adversity; hopefully today's column will help keep everyone's feet moving once again during your celebrations.

The Magician: 'Sunlight feat. Years & Years'

Famed international producer The Magician is back with a bright summery jam called 'Sunlight'.  This song has had plenty of buzz around it since it was featured as a mystery track on The Magician's Magic Tape #43, which came out last month.  Olly Alexander, of London's electro soul pop trio Years & Years, provides lush vocals, adding in that crucial layer of soul that every essential summer house track needs.

Jaakko Eino Kalevi might not be the easiest name to remember, but his music will stick like no other. The Finnish producer's latest track, 'Speak Out,' releasing on Tim Sweeney's Beats In Space next week, combines elements of rock, pop and dance music to create an effortlessly beautiful record. It's the type of work that sounds polished and complex, while maintaining a certain level of innocence that is impossible to ignore.
