Just a few short features ago, we were sharing an immense song from Molly Moore entitled Catch and Release and gushing over its jazzy soulful R&B pop. Now, let’s turn to her beau, progressive soul swooner Brandyn Burnette and his new single, out on esteemed French label Kitsuné. The St. Louis transplant leaves our hearts aflutter with his every smooth and buttery vocals on the resplendent future R&B groover, the first track from Brandyn Burnette’s long awaited debut album which reportedly is on its way soon.

Nick Samson, the Columbus by way of Cleveland multi-instrumentalist and vocalist better known nowadays as La Poré, swoops us away on a smooth luscious ride with his new single Missing It. We’re no strangers to La Poré’s 80s inspired, warm effulgent synthpop, having shared and even premiered some of his prior tracks in the past.

La Poré

takes influence from the likes of Prince, Michael Jackson, The Weeknd, Foster the People, and Blood Orange when he crafts his satin pumping tracks, all of which are quickly apparent on Missing It. The song’s snappy strut and creamy finish also evoke Empire of the Sun, but enveloped in a ruddy plush, cottony cushioned atmosphere. Missing It is a part of international record and fashion label Maison Kitsuné’s latest collaboration with the NBA. The track will be featured on the upcoming 18 song compilation, 

Kitsuné America 5: The NBA Edition, alongside contributions from a long list of other IHM lauded artists and friends. For me, this is a dream come true, since I’m such a huge fan of the Golden State Warriors (and have been since long before our current reign as superstar champions). Missing It, out now, is 1 of 5 pre-released singles that have arrived before the official release of the full compilation on February 17th. Download, stream, and pre-order these tracks and the compilation by way of all major platforms, here.

I love a good dose of French wave every now and then. That’s exactly what Kid Francescoli gives us on Les Vitrines. The sexy seductive, sleek pulsating whorl of synthpop and electro that this South of France artist has given us tells a story of a protagonist who fell out of love and found fatal passion instead. Les Vitrines was chosen by French label Kitsuné’s music for their music-meets-art project, Kitsuné Hot Stream, which offers fresh musical discoveries highlighted by the works of a visual guest artist. That artwork is debuted in real life at Café Kitsuné in Paris.

Those of us that were lucky enough to catch on to emerging Australian electronic act Human Movement last year have been waiting at the edge of our seats for their return. Their dark burning dance music was some of the most unique and fresh beats we’d encountered that year. New jam Right Thang is as “right” as it gets, a sexy grooving, sultry shuffling house heater with Eliot Porter on vocals. The embers are hot on this slinky club joint. A wicked remix by TÂCHES was also recently revealed off of a new remix EP out on Kistune. Stream the mesmerizing beauty, below.

British electronic duo GUNSHIP crafts and delivers some incredibly epic music. Their 2015 self titled album near shot me into outer space. The duo’s new lyric video for album track Kitsune seems to align with my sentiments exactly. As before, GUNSHIP pairs retro film footage with their magnificent synth laden music. Kitsune pulses grandly while its 80′s hued M83 panoramic dreaminess and cinematic vocals set my very heart aglow. If you’re keen on taking a glorious adventure, purchase GUNSHIP’s self titled album on iTunes.

It’s been far too long since we last heard from British producer Danglo, but he’s finally back with an infusion of effervescent, summery electronica to brighten up our day on new song Complete, featuring dazzling vocals by Ivan Franco.

Les Gordon, or Marc Mifune, is a Parisian producer fast on the rise. He’s supported famous French band Fauve on their 2015 tour as well as opened for electro great Madeon at Le Trianon this past year, one of several amazing venues I checked out during my visit to Paris in October. On December 11th, Les Gordon will release his new EP, Atlas, on legendary label KITSUNÉ. Just a few moments with the title track illustrates why the producer is becoming a sensation. Atlas is an effervescent and ethereal electronic track, one that springs and chops, shimmies and twinkles in a very Odesza and Flume way with the weightlessness of Mura Masa, but along with that beauty comes an organic quality we don’t often hear in electronic music. Despite the fact that many producers have started utilizing live instruments in their sets and in their music, the instruments on Atlas seem to take a front and center role on Atlas instead of being equal or lesser accompaniment. From cascading guitar, to cello and autoharp, Les Gordon masters it all and seamlessly blends them into the youthful and meditative gem. I know we’ve had folksy house music in the form of chill house remixes, and dream folk music of melting magnificence, but Les Gordon’s Atlas takes a whole new approach to what might be called a breathtaking blend of folk and electronica.

Echo Park charmers Dutch Party revealed an endearing new tune named Howl, a soothing track that reveals a more folk pop flavored side to the band. They previously reminded me of Foster The People and a touch of Spoon on their prior tracks. This one’s more like a subdued, stripped down Foster The People, with some Freedom Fry like earthiness. Howl will be on Kitsuné’s America 4 compilation, out May 24th.
