Betty Who joining Lemaitre on a fresh and funky new tune is a dream come true. We’ve been fans of the Australian pop sensation for a very long time, and we love the new music she’s been releasing now that she’s gone back to an independent career, too. She lends that irresistible voice to Norwegian electronic project Lemaitre’s scintillating new song, Rocket Girl, which was co-written with DagnyWe fly across the universe with them, riding high on Lemaitre’s French house-styled electro, so rife with sumptuous funk guitar and juicy plump synths. Suddenly, I’m imagining Grimes dancing to Rocket Girl alongside Elon Musk as he launches one of his Falcon 9′s. Seems fitting, doesn’t it? Rocket Girl has been tapped as the theme song for X Games Norway, which kicked off yesterday. Lemaitre will be performing at Sasquatch on May 25 and Austin City Limits Festival in October. Stream/download Rocket Girl, here.

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.

Los Angeles by way of Norway electronic duo Lemaitre come back full force on new single Machine just as they’ve kicked off an early start to the festival season with their recent performances at M3F in Arizona and CRSSD in San Diego. Machine is their first new offering since 2017′s Chapter One, and it’s an insanely contagious track that sees the chameleon producers serving up some indie pop inspired coruscant electronica. A touch of Justice’s more pop influenced music and some Passion Pit synthpop course through the sweetly wistful narrative about relationship issues. There’s one thing we’re certain of… we’re no machines, and we can’t help but feel the vivacious energy exuding from this spectacular new dance treat from Lemaitre. Machine is available, here.

Last November, I went out and “danced on the moon” with our favorite Moving Castle heroes, Hotel Garuda, and it was pure joy leaping into the air with a colossal crowd of ecstatic people to their latest original, Dancing On The Moon, on which they even teamed up with Norwegian heavyweights Lemaitre. We’ve been waiting for a remix pack since, sure that Hotel Garuda’s luxurious oasis of smooth disco and exuberant electro funk would continue to thrive in the hands of some their gifted production buddies. Today, our hopes have been heard, our prayers answered. Three remixes of Dancing On The Moon are out, including this one by breakout Los Angeles producer JUDGE. He gives the track a darker vibe with his future funk and trap remix, turning this lunar escapade into a restlessly jostling, beats breaking extravaganza. Additional edits by Botnek and Cavego are also available for streaming, here. Support the original on iTunes, 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.

I know this one’s been hopping around on everyone’s prized playlists for awhile now, but we simply can’t let such a superb Jerry Folk remix slide. The Norwegian virtuoso has given fellow countrymen Lemaitre a regal future trap lift on his remix of Higher, featuring candied vocalist Maty Noyes. Despite its lofty lurches and rich swells, Jerry Folk’s Higher reaches its high with an astounding smoothness and with much stylish pizzazz through its abundant trickling of future funk. His official remix is out on iTunes, 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.

It’s hard to believe that Norwegian duo Lemaitre can take us any higher than they’ve already done with their last EP, Afterglow, but that’s exactly what they do with their sonorous new single. Higher, which features Los Angeles chanteuse Maty Noyes and her ever bewitching, sultry simmering vocals, is an electrifying track on which Lemaitre ventures into grittier territory. It’s a dark future bass and taut dubstep hybrid from Lemaitre’s new album Chapter One, arriving on June 2nd. Higher is an instant grat if you pre-order the album, here.

Let’s slide our way into the weekend with a glorious remix of Norwegian troupe Lemaitre’s excellent Stanaj featuring masterpiece Playing To Lose by German electronic prodigy Mazde. This grand and magnificent future and ambient interpretation is a plinky percolating, rich resonating spectacular. It builds dramatically, consuming us fully as it progresses towards a full on cathartic resolution. Mazde has offered up one of the month’s best remixes in my books. The remix is available now on iTunes.

Kidswaste was obviously not “playing to lose” when the French producer took on Lemaitre’s Playing To Lose, featuring Stanaj. He’s given the track a massive makeover, turning the summery lush, sultry impassioned song into a vast sprawling, cosmic soaring future bass dazzler. The chromatic sweeping spectacular defies the confines of space, filling every crevice, crack, and rift from here until the ends of earth with its grand surging brilliance. Download the track for free from Toneden, then “play it to win”.
