So I thought I was done for the night and would continue on my behemoth list of songs to feature tomorrow morning. That is, until Flight Facilities dropped their brand new song. Behold, All Your Love, which features Sydney’s Dustin Tebbutt on transcendental vocals. Not only am I (and most of my friends) ardent FF fans, but this song is phenomenal, so I had to hop back on for a prompt share. All Your Love is a drastic departure from Flight Facilities’ more disco grooving tracks of yore. Instead, it seems to lean towards a deep luscious, ambient pumping organic house tone reminiscent of RÜFÜS DU SOL or Elderbrook, both of whom I’m also huge fans of, so I’m a happy camper right now whilst I’m already on my fifth or sixth listen of All Your Love. Australian electronic duo Flight Facilities are in the midst of their Return Flight tour and now they’ve followed it up with this brilliant song. It’s turning into one fine 2018 for FF fans like me. All Your Love is a meditative and expansive song simultaneously intimate soothing and atmospheric sprawling. It wraps us up in its shimmering beats, comforting us and dispersing a calm tranquility from within its ever evolving fluidity. We sink into its beauty, finding inner peace in it despite all the chaos around us. Stream/purchase All Your Love, here. Find out about FF’s tour, here. We’re hoping a Bay Area date gets added soon.

I was super excited about this song even before I heard it. It’s so good to see a talented budding artist like Madge show up on such a behemoth collaboration. The LA based Salt Lake City newcomer blew our minds when she made her debut earlier this year on Fight Or Flight Club and we’re infinitely glad she’s been receiving a whole lot of well deserved attention since. And now, here she is, lending some feisty, spunky vocals to Kaskade, Brohug, and Mr. Tape’s aptly named Fun, a funky bass house groover. Throw your hands in the air and dance your heart out to the infectious punching banger. It’s steamy fierce, an inferno of a swag jam that reminds me of both NVDES and SOFI TUKKER, but with a bouncier step and a whole lot of zestful, gutsy spirit. Grab the track, here.

New Zealand’s BAYNK just dropped two fine new tunes the other day, and to miss out on any of those tracks would be nothing short of criminal. The producer enchants us with glossy sleek pop and dreamy burbling electronica on Be In Love. The sprightly prancing, elegantly rippling song is both entrancing and exhilarating, with eloquent keys and chiffon light vocals. In some ways, Be In Love is like Caribou and Sampha, encapsulated in a more subtle and silky soundscape. BAYNK’s new double-A side single also features exultant Years, a satin smooth electronic track that continues to spellbind us to the utmost. Stream Years below. Stream/download both tracks by way of major services, here.

Australia’s Night Tales first dazzled us late last year with their debut single Move You, a deep pumping, dark sweltering electronic ode to unrequited love. The duo, formed by producer Third Floor and singer songwriter Kamaliza (previously of Olympic Ayres), return with an ace new jam named Want, which we can’t stop wanting more of after grooving to our hearts content to the song’s balmy sunset house and silky crooning by guest vocalist fellow Australian songstress Kimono. Chill disco beats, sultry horns, and some sweet RÜFÜS vibes abound on the molten electronic track. Want is out now on Majestic Casual. Find it, here.

Ever enigmatic production luminary ZHU dropped his new EP Ringos Desert Pt 1 last month, on which he continued to push the boundaries of house music and electronica. We were hoping the new release and the lack of a Bay Area tour date on his fall DUNE tour meant he would be announced as part of this year’s Treasure Island Music Festival lineup. Though we’re rather disappointed that this hasn’t happened, we’re also quite glad that ZHU has dropped a music video for slinky smoldering

Still Want U, his song with England’s Karnaval Blues. It’s the second track from Ringos Desert Pt 1, and a sparse misty, spacious burbling dose of deep humming, sensual simmering house hypnosis. Learn more about ZHU’s DUNE tour, here. We’re holding out hope that there’s still going to be an announcement about additional dates. Stream Ringos Desert Pt 1, here.

“Nobody” does glamorous, luscious house quite like Ferdinand Weber does, and it’s been a very long time since we’ve danced our evening hours away to a fresh new original from the German producer. So when we saw a new banger floating around from the producer on our feed, we jumped on it instantly. Seconds later, we were grooving out to his deep pumping, steamy surging dance track, Nobody, a posh and infectious, plush and contagious heater with tons of classic house vibes. Join the party, stream/download Nobody, here.

I’d imagine very few of you missed the arrival of a new ZHU EP late last week, but just in case you did, and just because new ZHU is always worthy of much deserved praise, let’s marvel over the enigmatic producer’s latest volume of dark, sultry electronica! After all, we’ve been absolutely spellbound by the San Francisco-native’s music ever since he first released an Outkast cover mashup anonymously. Sure enough, the brilliant spark we saw in that track several years ago has since become a flaming inferno; ZHU is now a superstar. And he’s just dropped a seven track EP named Ringos Desert Pt 1, which can be streamed in full, here. The EP takes us on a journey across barren lands and through magnificent dunes, where windswept beats, howling synths, and rich bass quench our sonic thirst and give us sustenance to survive the wasteland of the arid world. Ringos Desert Pt. 1 even opens with a superb collaboration with Australian singer songwriter JOY. named “Stormy Love, NM”. Her ethereal vocals and tendency for hypnotic haunting music is the perfect fit for ZHU’s inky sleek, glossy opaque house. Catch ZHU on his DUNE fall tour later this year. No Bay Area date has been announced, but we’re predicting a Treasure Island Music Festival appearance considering the tour dates. Find out more, here.

We might as well be dancing in the Caribbean right now as we bask in the tropical beauty of this gorgeous remix from Danish producer JOEL. He’s given Norwegian siren Ina Wroldsen a balmy dance makeover on his summery edit of the buzzing artist’s single, Strongest. Sia meets Shakira as Ina Wroldsen serenades us with her exquisite voice over JOEL’s luminously buoyant house. The mellifluously lifting deep house remix is a free download, here.

We’ve been fans of Future Classic-signed Australian singer songwriter and producer Hayden James for a very, very long time. In fact, our love for his debut single Permission to Love has never faltered or faded, and it’s still one of our favorites today. So when a new Hayden James song crops up, we prepare ourselves for some true music magic, which is exactly what we get on Just Friends, which features creamy crooner Boy Matthews on guest vocals. Just Friends straddles the line between vivacious dance music and Years & Years like upbeat R&B pop with its pumping bass and incendiary disco beats. Download/stream this glorious Hayden James return, here. Then dance the night away to the friend-zone anthem.

There’s no limit to our love for Captain Kidd, or that’s what we’ve learned over the past two years from the Ohio quartet’s singles. They reinforce our penchant for their pop with recent single LIMIT, a bass pumping house pop jam whose incendiary heat and swaggering beats are like Years and Years with a drizzle of Sofi Tukker’s torrid groove. Desire fueled LIMIT is one to take into the late hours of the night, when you can dance without abandon in the embrace of dark shadows. Re-visit some of Captain Kidd’s prior singles on Soundcloud, here.
