Brass toting Brooklyn electro-funk and disco electro chefs French Horn Rebellion serve up a light and airy treat in the form of new single Rooftops, which features lissome vocals by Natalie Duffy. We dip into its crisp cool electronica and dance pop, thoroughly enchanted by its nimble beats and sparkling synths. Rooftops is a blissed out confection, a surprisingly weightless and spry, nimble and halcyon song from the versatile brothers, who usually dish out robust and plump bangers. The track first premiered via Billboard. Robert Perlick-Molinari of FHR explains: “There’s something magical when you get to the top of building. Looking down you see how small everything is. Looking up you feel this cosmic connection. And when you’re with someone you love that feeling becomes euphoric.“ Rooftops is out on FHR’s label YouTooCanWoo, and they’ve just announced that they’ll be expanding their “Night Out” series of collaborative performances into national and international markets. Find out more about those parties, here. Download Rooftops, here.

Lemaitre’s Splitting Colors is without a doubt a personal favorite from the beloved Norwegian electronic duo. Youthful and spry disco electro imbibes the 2012 classic, which feels like it harkens from a different time, when French house ruled the world. A mysterious project named Animal HÖuse alights on our radar with a brilliant modern take on the single, transforming it into a dazzling extravaganza that literally oscillates between fleecy wafting future funk and tense quivering dirty trap/dubstep. Yes, this remix has been out and about for awhile, but there’s no way we were going to pass up on sharing the jam now we know it exists. Download the banger for free, here.

“Thanks” is something I’d certainly like to say to THANKS, a Danish production duo who does catchy, soulful electronic music. Their latest dazzling single gives me an invigorating dose of dance ready energy after an incredibly long day and night, and their French house styled disco rock is absolutely irresistible. After hooking quite a lot of big league blogs with their prior tracks, THANKS is back with I Can Get, which features Christian Vium, lead singer of Danish rock outfit Go Go Berlin. I Can Get was inspired by a shared passion for cartoon-rock from the 90′s, French electro, and icons like Tom Jones and Mick Jagger. It’s a whirlwind of a big and splashy, glamorous and flashy banger. THANKS describes the swinging song as an anthem with a rock feel that celebrates love. It’s obvious I Can Get is more than worthy of a celebration, too. Stream/download the single, here.

Champagne, Secrets, & Chanel is as decadent a groovy banger as its name might suggest. It’s also a collaboration involving immense talent. The single is the latest track from Academy Award and Grammy Award winning disco pioneer, Giorgio Moroder, who teams up with fast rising Los Angeles duo Phantoms on the ritzy party jam. Champagne, Secrets, & Chanel also features searing vocals by Prince Charlez. Round and round we twirl to the electro funky, deep thumping jam. It’s just the sort of blazing tune I want to dance to after watching my Dubs rout the Cavs in game 2 of the NBA Finals. Here’s another reason to celebrate: I get to dance to Phantoms at Live 105′s BFD in less than a week on June 10th.

I’d gladly fall to my knees at the mercy of Kid Astray’s latest single, except I’ll want to hop right back on my feet again so I could dance to my heart’s content. Fall To My Knees is as vibrant as indie pop gets and a scintillating return from Norwegian quintet Kid Astray. Sawing synths, resonant beats, and rumbling bass keep us moving in euphoria as we feed off of Fall To My Knees’ brisk energy. Kid Astray ventures very close to full on disco wrapped electro house at times on their fulgent pop banger. Hopefully, Fall To My Knees is a sign of more new Kid Astray to come. Alternate stream of the single via Soundcloud can be found below.

There must be some irony involved when someone presents you with a song named Stop Moving, and it’s such a smooth grooving, perky decadent jam that it’d be absurd to not move. Disco funk inflected synthpop comes our way on Swedish four piece Simian Ghost’s luxuriant single. Thomas Hedlund of Phoenix produced the track, which comes as no surprise considering the French house flavors running through Stop Moving. In fact, Stop Moving is like a juncture between Daft Punk and Phoenix. The single comes as a second taste from Simian Ghost’s forthcoming self titled full length. Stop Moving is out now on Heist Or Hit. You can also stream the suave banger off Soundcloud below.

In The End is Starfucker’s current glorious single from their 2016 album “Being No One, Going Nowhere” and it’s received a fittingly glam music video treatment now, too. It’s hard to believe Starfucker has been around for a full decade, but they have. There’s no sign of slowing down when it comes to these esteemed Portland psych pop and electro rock purveyors. We twirl around in heady delight to In The End’s lavish disco electro and smoldering dance rock. “Being No One, Going Nowhere” is out on Polyvinyl Records

Swedish troupe Ruby Empress likes to call their music “Debussy disco”, and you’ll quickly comprehend why once you’ve heard the band’s third single to date, a lavish dazzler named Escapism Deluxe. A classy glam and elegant luxuriant dosage of velveteen electro funk and French electro house engulfs us as we delve into the brazen dashing tune. Escapism Deluxe is a disco swanky groover that channels Justice, Phoenix, and Jungle, all at the same time. It doesn’t get more “deluxe” than Escapism Deluxe, a taste off the quartet’s debut EP, Empressionism, due out February 10th. A music video is expected to arrive soon. In the meantime, Escapism Deluxe is out via all major services, here.

There may be a massive amount of controversy surrounding US relations with Russia right now, but we’re more than fortunate that this commotion can be set aside when it comes to music. Moscow’s Tesla Boy renders me a molten mess with their pastel glowing synthpop and lively bounding nu-disco single, Avoid, their first song of the new year. Cool synths are met by flushed falsettos and resolute drums on this undeniably infectious anthem. Tesla Boy explains: “The idea of this song is that people often fool themselves by pretending that they are not bothered and don’t care about the past. But in fact, somewhere deep down, they know that something else is catching them and holding them still.” Well, I know what’s catching me now, and I don’t need to avoid the fact that it’s Tesla Boy. Avoid is out now via all major services and outlets.

We’re having one of the biggest storms of the season right now in San Francisco. It nearly felt like a hurricane when I was trying to drive home through horrendous traffic earlier tonight. What could be a better time than a night like this to get down to some disco house? We’ll feel warm and cleansed after grooving to this crisp stainless instrumental remix offered up by Finland’s Disco Despair. Except, there’s little to despair over as our spirits rise to his edit of British producer Birdee’s I Want You, a track off the Three Sides Of Love remix package out now on Youth Control. Despite its glamorous plump nu-disco, this I Want You is also dreamy and light. Pouring rain fades into the distant past as I find myself blithely bouncing on pastel hued puffs of feathery clouds. Stream Birdee’s Three Sides of Love remix package, which also featuresRoisto and Colour Vision, in full on Soundcloud.
