The crème de la crème of the Norwegian electronic music scene come together on Control, a new single from Lemaitre featuring Jerry Folk. Control carries the hallmarks of both these esteemed acts in its suave, slinky swagger and its glitzy swinging future funk vibes. The single is part of a series of collaborations this year that Lemaitre is in the midst of releasing involving other Norwegian luminaries like Coucheron, William Larsen, and Bearson. Stream/download Control, here.

It’s been a moment since we’ve heard fresh new music from Los Angeles DJ and producer VenessaMichaels, and we’re grateful that she’s chosen to spruce up the final weeks of our year by releasing a long awaited original. She’s even teamed up with Arizona producer Olmos and enlisted former LA collaborator Effy for some saccharine vocals on rosy bouncing, slick buoyant Good Love. It’s a honeyed bloomer of a synth flickering, weightless frolicking feel good jam. Rich chords and spry beats give the track a whole lot of glamorous future funk pizzazz. Good Love, which deserves all the good loving in the world, is available from iTunes, here.

Savvy dance music troupe Party Pupils are pros at what they do despite what their name might suggest. If anyone’s a ‘student’ here, it’s me, as I learn exactly how smoothly and dexterously I can twist, shimmy, and hop to the LA duo’s funky bass and plump beats. Party Pupils spark up a weekday solo dance party right here in my office with their new song Over & Under, a sexy grooving, creamy strutting future funk jam that melds vintage disco soul with modern dance tendencies. You can also stream Max Schneider and Ryan Siegal’s sleek new banger via Spotify, here. Be a good ‘pupil’ and keep that ‘party’ going with their prior releases on Soundcloud, here.

Have you ever wished you could dance on the moon? I have. Imagine the possibilities when the pull of gravity is reduced to 1.622

m/s²  versus the  9.807 m/s² we’re used to here on our earth. Then picture how high you’d be prancing to a song like this one, from doubly gifted Moving Castle duo Hotel Garuda, who go fresh and funky on their new tune with the help of Norwegian electronic marvels Lemaitre. Dancing On The Moon is a luxurious oasis of smooth disco and exuberant electro funk. Don’t forget to pretend you’re dancing on the moon when Hotel Garuda hits your city on their North American tour in support of the new record. They’ve even brought some spectacular friends with them, like Daktyl, SAINT WKND, Kidswaste, and Geotheory! Find out more and purchase tickets, here. Purchase/stream Dancing On The Moon, here, then get on up so you can get down to the luscious jam.

Talk About’s wonky pop vivacity is the perfect summer treat that leaves us ready to strut with aplomb down a beach as the sun sets. The perky grooving, whimsically charming funk pop and indie dance jam comes from Austin duo CAPYAC, who’ve also just shared a music video for the cheeky, flirty gem. A copious dose of frisky future funk dresses up this suave tune. Talk About is a taste from CAPYAC’s debut full length, which you can support on Kickstarter, here. There’s no doubt CAPYAC’s got style. Excuse me as I throw on my coolest looking shades and feel stylish for a few brief minutes to this swaggering tune, too.

Renowned Minneapolis producer Gigamesh focuses his potent remix talents on on the latest smash hit from both Australian duo Peking Duk and UK duo AlunaGeorge. That’s right, Fake Magic has received a divine makeover in the hands of Matthew Thomas Masurka. He lightens up the track with airy synths and lithe buoyant beats. There’s only real magic here at work as we get down on this magnificent Friday night to Gigamesh’s glittery disco house and brisk future funk.

What So Not dropped his Divide & Conquer Remixes EP last week on OWSLA / Sweat It Out to tide us over as we await his debut full length album, a record that will surely set the electronic music scene on fire when it finally drops. In the meantime, we can dance to a series of superb edits by the likes of SLUMBERJACK, KUURO, Ribongia, Slow Hours, Go Freek, and more. We can even bust out our disco shoes to this plump snazzy mover, a remix of Trust, the Australian producer’s collaboration with BURNS, by California’s Plastic Plates. It’s a glitzy glam, juicy succulent, and steamy seductive whorl of a classy banger. Stream the Divide & Conquer Remixes EP in full on Soundcloud, here. Purchase from iTunes, here.

British producer SG Lewis has teamed up with some phenomenal talent in the past to bring us his sultry resplendent jams, even offering up a collaboration with ever amazing Gallant a year ago. New sizzling pumper Times We Had features a buttery voiced NY crooner named TOULOUSE whose slinky crooning reminds me of Glass Animals crossed with RKCB. That opulent voice and SG Lewis’ luxuriant oscillations and richly shearing synths make for a bedazzling combination on this R&B house meets future disco banger. Times We Had is out now via Jasmine Music / PMR Records.

There sure as heck is nothing “fake” when it comes to the magic that happens when Aussie duo Peking Duk and UK duo AlunaGeorge come together. The epic union has resulted in a funk permeated banger named Fake Magic, which comes with a fresh new video situated in a seedy dive bar. Aluna’s signature sassy R&B vocals are a heavenly accompaniment to Peking Duk’s disco endowed electro. The plucky electrifying jam channels a generous amount of Daft Punk in its flashy glamorous threads. Fake Magic is out on iTunes, here.

Not only has this Salzinger fellow won me over with his latest remix, a riveting flip of Boston project Sleeping Lion’s Generous, but the enigmatic producer confirms his firm hold with the bevy of edits he released prior, too. I find myself totally entranced and falling into a profoundly meditative state as Salzinger’s fine texture and electrifying shimmers flick their way through my ears. His “sleeping lion” must be caught up in one surreal dream. This future bass remix is nothing short of breathtaking. If it is a dream, I’d be happy to be trapped within its confines for all time to come. Upon further inspection after such an impressive introduction, I’ve discovered that Salzinger must love some of the same bands and artists that I do. Check out his remixes of Portugal. The Man’s funkadelic single Feel It Still below. Then stream Salzinger’s take on Alt-J classic Breezeblocks, too. His remix of Sleeping Lion can be downloaded for free, here.
