In the confusing flurry of SXSW lineups that keep surfacing on the daily these days, I’ve noticed that Party Pupils will be making their way out to Austin next week, too. It comes as no surprise that MAX, who’s one half of Party Pupils will also be making an appearance. That’s double the reason for some festive celebrations, and who else but the slick dance troupe is perfect for soundtracking a massive dance party with their rambunctious bangers? They’ve even teamed up with their buddy from Connecticut, esteemed DJ and producer Audien, for a fresh take on Montell Jordan classic This Is How We Do It. Is there any more appropriate track for an elite production duo like Party Pupils?  This Is How We Do It is a timeless New Jack Swing party anthem. This updated cover reboot from Party Pupils and Audien both brings the old school back and gets us grooving with its future funk dance floor energy. Plus, those fresh vocals are sizzling hot! Grab the hot jam from iTunes, here.

It’s actually been quite some time since producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Lido has given us some new original music. That’s not to say we haven’t been incredibly elated listening to his cover of Solsbury Hill and his sensational remix of Portugal. the Man’s Feel It Still, over and over and over again these past months. But we’re over the moon that Lido has since returned with Not Enough, which is more than enough of the electronic maestro’s dexterous brilliance. He even partners up with groundbreaking R&B and hip hop duo THEY. on the song, which gives us a massive dose of old school New Jack Swing alongside its R&B dance groove and retro hip hop vibes. Lido and THEY. have generously made Not Enough a free download, here.

New London electropop artist Anne-Marie first caught my attention several months ago with her debut Karate. Anne-Marie fully delivers more of her sexy sass and whimsical pop on new single Boy. Boy is a swinging, snappy tune chock full of ensnaring hooks and spicy heat that reminds me of the 90′s. Anne-Marie is working on a debut album for next summer.

Here’s an interesting and delicious treat from a new producer to grace my radar. HJMS hails from Los Angeles, California, and he’s pushing the envelope with his brand of R&B, pop, hip hop, and future bass, as can be heard on his new track Moist Blanka. On the bubbly, snappy, and effervescent gem, HJMS also demonstrates his recent fixture on the new jack swing movement of the 80′s and early 90′s, resulting in a fusion of sounds that could be called “future jack swing”. Moist Blanka is certainly a playful treat laid out with many surprise twists. HJMS heavily samples from indie act Lucy & La Mer’s enchanting song Rainy Days, but creates a completely different sassy atmosphere with his track. 

OFFICIAL VID: French Horn Rebellion feat. HAERTS – Swing Into It

Milwaukee sibling duo French Horn Rebellion teamed up with Brooklyn indie pop quartet HAERTS on their latest track, the groovy Swing Into Me. The catchy, electrifying jam also received the music video treatment today. Of course, the tune is full of electro house funkiness and the expected French horns. FHR themselves are calling this distinct new sound “New Jack Swing”, and what a fresh genre to boogie down to. There’s no lack of retro throwback epicness. There’s a Paula Abdul like thing going on here, and I owned Paula Abdul cassette tapes back in the day. Just saying…
