Hot Chip: 'Huarache Lights'

Hot Chip’s sixth studio album is on the way with an expected release scheduled for May, and the first single, 'Huarache Lights,' is already prime material.

 The song includes all the elements that made us all fall in love with the British ensemble in the first place: quirky arrangements, a catchy melody, infectious basslines, and they went further this time by  including a sample of First Choice's classic disco anthem 'Let No Man Put Asunder.' Hot Chip has set my expectations high and I look forward to what is coming up.

Originally conceived by Erol Alkan as an exclusive track for his FabricLive 77 Mix, ‘Sub Conscious’ received a new acid treatment by ones of my favorite producers in 2014, Tin Man, which is coming out as a 12” on the Phantasy imprint.

Tin Man’s experience with neoclassical and ambient work can definitely be seen in this re-work, but it is the added piano riff towards the end of the track that really makes it stand out as a hot record for the dancefloor.

Museum of Love: 'Who’s Who of Who Cares (Daniel T. & Cooper Saver Remix)'

Museum of Love, the band created by former LCD Soundsystem drummer Pat Mahoney with Dennis McNany (also known as Jee Day), released their debut self-titled full length album on DFA Records this past October.

The label issued a remix of 'The Who’s Who of Who Cares,' (the original track was shared here by Ru) by producers Daniel T. and Cooper Saver. The boys turn the original song into a mixture of space-themed, tribal and jazzy sounds. The perfect soundtrack for interstellar trips to visit distant planets with ancient cultures – or simply dance all night. Download it for free here.

After being named a favorite by electro-pop starlet Robyn and remixing the Swedish singer’s track ‘Monument’ this past summer, there is no doubt that Birmingham-based producer Mark E will continue to see his work appreciated by an ever-growing audience. He is on a steady rise with two recent releases: ‘Activity,’ out on Futureboogie, and ‘Avion Central,’ due out on Ghostly/Spectral next week.

Mark E: ‘Activity'

 While ‘Activity' relies on acid basslines, hypnotic synths and an overall dark mood reminiscent of Detroit techno, ‘Avion Central’ takes a lighter turn with its ethereal textures and slower beats, showcasing Mark E’s grasp for sophisticated and versatile dance music.

A few weeks ago, when I first stumbled upon the names of local favorite Jacques Renault and British producer The Emperor Machine together, I could tell something great was on the way. Luckily for us, the wait is over and their work together is out. Hear the snippet of their new track below, and head to XLR8R for a free stream of the full EP.

Jacques Renault feat. The Emperor Machine: ‘I Like It’

The collaborative track, 'I Like It,'  is the opener of Jacques Renault’s brand new EP, Out of Sync, which releases next week. It combines the house grooves from Jacques’ production with the outstanding analog synth work of Andy Meecham, the man behind The Emperor Machine and member of Chicken Lips. The result is a powerhouse track for late night moments on the dancefloor.

Yelle: 'Complètement Fou'

French trio Yelle has a distinctly fun and unpretentious approach to pop and dance music, and became popular in 2007 after their cover of 1987’s hit ‘A Cause Des Garçons,’ including a cute remake of the original music video by another trip curiously also named A Cause Des Garçons.

This week, Yelle's third studio album, Complètement Fou (French for "Completely Crazy”), sees the light of day, keeping in line with the trio's signature electro-pop sound with the album's title track.  Continuing with the feel-good vibe reminiscent of post-Daft Punk French electronica, the just-released music video embraces rich colors, oversized popcorn, and voguing. The combination that showcases Yelle’s effortlessly sexy, silly and hilarious style that makes them so unique.
