Róisín Murphy is finally back big time. Last month, the Irish singer teased us with the Paris is Burning-inspired 'Gone Fishing,’ followed by last week’s killer dance track ‘Jealousy’ (which has both a disco and house mix) and now it is time for the first official single off of her new album to see the light of day, 'Exploitation' – an interesting mix of uptempo beats, distorted synths and a jazzy guitar, all tied together by Róisín's strong vocals. The new LP, Hairless Toys, will be out on May 11th, although it will not include 'Jealousy,' which so far is available only as a vinyl EP (you can stream the full EP here).

- Berlin house label Toy Tonics has me hooked on their releases recently and my last column also had one of their new records. This time, leave it to the talented Australian producer Jad & The Ladyboy to create the perfect combo of acid house and ethnic vocals. Listen to the full track on Spotify.
- I have a soft spot for spoken word vocals over house records, and Tommy Bones' new record Black Concept delivers exactly that on the track ‘Put It On You,’ which features vocals by Lydia Rhodes.
- Discodromo was one of the main guest DJs last weekend at NYC's world famous Black Party and they just shared a new acid house, space disco-inspired remix for Man Power’s ‘Trans’ that’s sure to rise up the energy level on any dancefloor.
- Berlin's Panorama Bar resident DJ Virginia has a stellar new release on the famed local label Ostgut Ton. The title track, ‘My Fantasy,’ has a very familiar Chicago house feel reminiscent of Mr. Fingers, with an updated approach to synths and bass, as well as Virginia’s signature ethereal vocals.
