Ardyn – ‘Together’
The new single from English duo is produced by Tourist and has a lovely soft-rock Fleetwood Mac vibe in the chorus. One for the re-spin.
Jafaris – ‘If You Love Me’
One of four tracks released today on Dubliner Jafaris’ new EP Velvet Cake. ‘If You Love Me’ is the instant standout for me, from a talented young man who is on the up.
Mix & Fairbanks – ‘Girls’
Mix & Fairbanks are two young Kildare producers and DJs Rob Smyth and Gary O’Reilly who in a short time have been nailing electronic disco productions in a live setting, via DJ edits, remixes and mixes.
‘Girls’ the Mix & Fairbanks song from the EP is an absolute dancefloor stomper, a synth-rush tune that melds the bouncing pinging synth of ‘Inspector Norse’ with a Daft Punk style vocoder robot vocal. I can’t stop playing it and I’m going to be playing it all summer long.
Joe Goddard – Home (Morgan Geist remix)
A remix of a highlight from Joe Goddard’s album released today by Metro Area’s Morgan Geist. The sample is from Brainstorm’s ‘We’re on Our Way Home’ , which Goddard says he found on tour in his Electric Lines playlist.
Soulé – ‘Good Life’ (Mark McCabe remix)
Overcoats – ‘Smaller Than My Mother’
A highlight form my leading album of the week. A reworked version of an old song that shows how far these New York ladies have come in their career.
Songhoy Blues – ‘Bamako’
Light Afro funk from the Malian band’s new album Résistance on Transgressive Records to be released June 16th. Iggy Pop features on the new album.

Morgan Geist (Metro Area) and Jessy Lanza (Hyperdub and Caribou collaborator on Our Love) have collaborated on The Galleria, inspired by New Jersey shopping malls, New York radio stations, “bombastic freestyle, club dubs, razor-edits and bubblegum-pop R&B”.
The project manifests itself in a fine four track EP of electronic synth pop with an ’80s feel, two originals in ‘Calling Card’ and “Mezzanine’ with a dub version of each track. They call it ” a dancefloor-friendly dub with plenty of jump-cuts for the forward-thinking nostalgic.”
Lanzy has also collaborated with DJ Teklife.
