Unexpected but fabulous crossover collaborations in electronic music continue to surface as Dutch duo Kraak & Smaak enlist Grammy nominated dapper soul man Mayer Hawthorne on sweetly saucy dance jam I Don’t Know Why. Together, they ooze dewy luscious seduction on the funky house track, its muggy heat and spicy electro irresistibly slushy succulent. I Don’t Know Why is Kraak & Smaak’s latest reveal from their cleverly named new album Juicy Fruit. The single gets a release on May 6th, while Juicy Fruit drops June 10th via Jalapeno Records.

Come April 8th, Grammy nominated artist Mayer Hawthorne will release a new solo album to delight our eager ears. From Man About Town comes soulful ditty Love Like That, an instantaneously hooking, succulent second single with a dapper cool groove. It’s also infinitely cool that Mayer Hawthorne is supporting legendary Hall & Oates this Friday in New York at Madison Square Garden. It’s obvious how great an influence the duo are on Mayer Hawthorne. Pre-order new album Man About Town on iTunes.

It seems I missed the memo on a funky West Coast electronic act till today. The mysterious group Tuxedo has stayed anonymous since last year, when they dropped some smooth tunes, including this one, the slick and cool Do It. There are rumors that the group is the work of Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One, and today, Mayer Hawthorne cameos on Tuxedo’s new video for Do It. So, maybe it’s true! Watch the video below for the synthy song, a retro dance track that sounds like Chromeo, Mayer Hawthorne, and Cherub decided to all hang out together. Tuxedo is working on a full album for a release in 2015. Sounds like we’ll find out more about these guys very soon.

I encountered this recent cover of Stay by Mayer Hawthorne, and it’s far too chic and sumptuous to overlook. Sure, many have covered Rihanna’s Stay, but Mayer really brings his own seductive neo-soul slow groove to the tune. Now, let’s not forget, though the song was a huge Rihanna hit, the original was written by the talented Mikky Ekko, who ended up guesting on Rihanna’s version.  Mayer Hawthorne’s version of Stay, which was recorded live in Madison, Wisconsin, comes off far less gloomy lovesick, much more saccharine and honeyed.

Norwegian synthpop act Coucheron’s Deep End, featuring Mayer Hawthorne and Eastside, is a helluva glistening good tune, but this nu-disco house remix by fellow Norwegian electronic artist Matoma is certainly a dreamy, lustrous delight, too. It’s rather grey and overcast in San Francisco today, so this is the perfect dose of summery, tropical sunshine and languid dreaminess that I needed. And if that isn’t enough tasty, balmy earfuls of happiness for you, Matoma has another brand new treat for us in the form of this chill tropical house remix of British R&B/soul artist Marlon Roudette’s When The Beat Drops Out. Two sweet, blissed out remixes in one week. Matoma, you’re much too generous.

I do so love Norwegian synthpop act Coucheron’s single Deep End, which features Eastside and Mayer Hawthorne, for a trifecta that apparently works wonders together. The pulsing, disco tinged gem has a fittingly summery video to go with it now. So if you passed up on it the last couple times I featured it, hurry up and listen. It’s pure glistening heaven.
