Miami's Brika (who we're big fans of) is back with another soulful single "You" being released this Friday (6/17). As the name implies the track is all about you, and how much you mean to her. Let us count the ways...
Check out the goodness below. We are told even more music is on the way, perhaps a new album?! Can't wait!
One of our faves PJU (formerly Punks Jump Up) are back and getting ready to release an exciting new single "Coming Back" feat Javi on Perfect Havoc June the 17th. It is a sparkling house jam with excellent vocals that I'm sure will be lighting many a dance floor on fire this summer. I for one can't wait to play it in my DJ sets.
Check out that tune below, and if you like what you hear you can pre-order it on iTunes.
Got sent this new track "Tangled Shadow" by LA artist Paris Radio. Paris Radio is the solo project of Tony Aguiar formerly of LA rock band Voxhaul Broadcast. For this new project he wanted to venture more into the electronic side of music that he loves and didn't get to explore much with his previous band. I have to say he is off to a great start! "Tangled Shadow" is an exquisite electronic pop song that was inspired by the nervous anticipation of his first date with his future wife. It is filled with guitars, synths and soaring melodies, as well as those underrated pauses that he uses to great affect. I think he captured that feeling of falling for someone just right.
Check out that tune via his soundcloud below. We will be keeping our eyes and ears out for this up and comer. So should you.
A friend turned me onto the debut album Hopelessness by ANOHNI whom you should know through her work with Antony and the Johnsons or her brilliant work handling vocal duties on Hercules & Love Affair's timeless disco anthem "Blind". The album is excellent! I have been jamming it over a week now. The vocal acrobatics she does on this record are astounding and the music is intense and piercing. Sure this will be in the conversation for Best Albums of 2016 once the lists start rolling in at the end of the year.
Check out the video for album opener "Drone Bomb Me" feat Naomi Campbell below. If you dig it I recommend you check out the rest of the album. Top shelf stuff.
One of our favorite French duos Dim Sum sent us their new video for their excellent track "High Love" and the video matches the sweetness of the source material. A love story for the summer, a story of lost opportunities. Don't let it slip you by fellas. Check that out below...
In addition to the video they are giving away new track "To the Top" (for a soundcloud follow). It is a banging, ready for prime time instrumental disco jam that you might hear at a cool club/bar near you. I know it has already been added to my Rekordbox ;)
Digging the new album from the Modeselektor/Apparat collaboration Moderat entitled III. As the name implies it is their third release and it is a solid album, 9 tracks with zero filler. It's a great record that melds the world of electronic music and house music pretty seamlessly, and their vocals give the record a nice human touch. This one will be in heavy rotation at OTR over the next few months and will probably be on many top album lists once 2016 says goodbye. Plus how amazing is that album artwork?!
Check out their new video for one of our faves "Running".
New Metronomy = Happy Us!! Metronomy just dropped a bouncy/dancey new single called "Old Skool" from their forthcoming album Summer 08' which is being released July 1st. Really loving the track and their super 70's inspired/colorful video for it. Wes Anderson would be proud.
Check that out below then be on the lookout for that album. You know it's gonna be amazing!
