Crisp piano stabs and high voltage beats inspire us to get up and dance our Thursday night away on vivacious For Real, a track out now on Spinnin’ from producers Goshfather and Zookëper. Thrills and exhilaration abound as the pair come together to douse us with future disco house and some classic house vibes on the contagiously bounding, sky-high leaping dance extravaganza. Download/stream this superb pick-me-up anthem, here.

A freshly minted jam like Breathe goes hand in hand with a visualizer that includes “tic-tac” like mints, or so we learn as we bust out our smooth dance moves to this springy bounding track from British producer Jax Jones. The UK house heater features vocals by singer songwriter Ira Wroldsen and an irresistible classic house groove. Breathe’s sexy bounce and spacious but vibrant beats leave it hard for us to catch our own breaths as we dance feverishly to the contagious track. Breathe is out now and available, here.

BICEP, a project helmed by Belfast-born, London-based duo Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson, just released their eponymous debut album last Friday, and it’d be criminal not to take a prolonged moment to extol their captivating electronica. The duo’s sound is founded on the blueprint of classic house, techno, electro, and Italo disco, but morphed and transformed such that it couldn’t be anything else but BICEP. Album track Vale is a dusky hypnotic, restless thrumming spectacular that takes us on a journey of euphoria and catharsis. Hints of UK house, garage, and R&B season the sublime track. The pair also released a music video for AURA last week, another stand out cut from their self titled full length. Watch the visualizer below as you dance away to its dark techno and gothy trance brilliance, much reminiscent of some of Crystal Castles and TR/ST’s production, but in a more uplifting and ecstatic manner. The songs, and BICEP’s debut EP, are available from iTunes, here.

I don’t think it’s humanly possible to resist a The Disco Fries single that features Great Good Fine OK, unless you’re a grump that despises dancing and music. The NYC dance duo offers up retro hued electro house and iridescent synthpop on their chrome coated jam Moving On, while GGFO delivers their signature creamy vocals on the pop and dance hybrid. Moving On is the perfect throwback groover, a scintillating composition with electrifying chord jabs and smooth intoxicating synths. Stream/download this divine collaborative single, here.

British collective Black Saint has lit up our radar and rung all our alarms with their second single, Never Did This Before, the follow up to their debut hit Could You Love Me, which has clocked up over 8 million streams on Spotify alone. Their new sultry soulful, gutsy thrumming house banger, which Black Saint mixed themselves, features striking vocals by singer songwriter and producer, Ruth-Anne Cunningham. The booming jam also sports plenty of hip hop, future house, and UK garage stylings in its jabbing beats and skittering percussion. Could You Love Me is reminiscent of a scorching Kiesza hit, and it’s sure to light plenty of dance floors on fire. Grab the mod banger from major retailers, here.

San Francisco’s very own disco dance auteur Viceroy has linked up with British singer songwriter Tom Aspaul on a sweltering summer banger named Improvise, for which I’m going to have to improvise some slick dance moves to as I bounce along to its buoyant chords. This satin chic sunset house meets nu-disco banger is a pool party must with its funky licks, glamorous beats, and smooth cooing. Improvise is out now via Dim Mak. Grab it from iTunes, here.

Big news came from Future Classic yesterday and it set my social media feeds ablaze. Turns out, much of my music loving network adores Touch Sensitive, too. It seemed like everyone was celebrating the Australian producer’s return and getting down to his latest exhilarating single, Lay Down. It’s been a long time since his last official release, Pizza Guy, which went on to become a cult hit. The chromatic glimmering, retro classic house he returns with on Lay Down is luxuriously seductive. There’s no “laying down” or sitting still to this fine return, which we hope is a harbinger of much more to come from Touch Sensitive now that he’s broken his silence. The producer will be heading out on tour next month through the US, with a sunset cruise stop in San Francisco on June 17th. Find out more on his website, here.

I dove eagerly into this remix the very moment I became aware of its existence. You see, I’m a massive fan of Kate Bush, and Cloudbusting is most certainly one of my favorite tunes by the esteemed British pioneer. For a dance remix of Cloudbusting to drop in my lap is like a gift from the music gods, one that could go seriously awry or be a delicious modern twist. Just Us, the NYC duo made up of Steven Lee and Carl Kennedy, offer up the latter on their crossover edit. Cloudbusting does happen to be one of Kate Bush’s more upbeat and bopping pieces. Just Us takes full advantage of that fact as they transform the legendary song into a deep dance cut with Kate’s inimitable voice shining front and center. The remix bounces elegantly, accompanied by its signature strings. This is one euphoric dancefloor Cloudbusting I’d be more than happy to get down to. Snag the jam from iTunes, here. Re-visit the music video for the original, here, which I still find absolutely captivating in all its bizarre Miyazaki like, giant Donald Sutherland starring glory.

Prepare for some feel good jittery deep house vibes as he rejuvenates Sean Paul’s No Lie with a vociferous bouncing edit! The Dua Lipa featuring original goes robust whomping and ebullient jolting on Midi Culture’s re-fix, a free download, here. You’re going to wish it’s the weekend already so you could revel all night long to this exhilarating jam.

Long time IHM local production favorite, San Francisco’s Slaptop, is slowly unveiling treats to build up to the release of his debut album, With You, on March 3rd. It’s obvious from what we’ve heard so far that With You is going to be a can’t miss versatile display of Slaptop’s dance inducing skills. On new preview Another Life, he entrances us with deep booming house then enchants us with melodic R&B pop courtesy of husky voiced siren, Geneva White. Slaptop has always walked a fine line between musical genres with his electronic concoctions. Another Life is no different. It’s both a throwback to the 90′s and a future styled piano house anthem. Re-visit Slaptop’s prior songs revealed from his forthcoming album by heading over to Soundcloud, here.
