The boys are back! After cancelling their Wild Life festival held in June with fellow UK-mates Rudimental they took to instagram to let us know the purpose was to give their third album a proper commitment. Today, they finally let us to hear the fruits of their labor.

They took to social media again to break the terrific news: “Sorry it’s been a while – we have been missing you all immensely, so we wanted to share with you something we’ve been working on now the sun is shining and the trees are green. A few months ago, we stumbled across an amazing female vocalist named Fatoumata Diawara. While digging through her discography we discovered this beautiful sample and started messing around, having fun and experimenting with it. The result is our new song, ‘Ultimatum.’”

If this song is any indication of what’s to come from their next album, which I hope will be dropping soon, then we can expect another stellar track list of sensational songs to get lost to. The vibes of this song desperately makes me want Tom Misch to open for them on their next tour. 

Fatuoumata’s new album was released today in the U.S.

I guess I’m really digging the Brit rock music today, because this next one is from British quintet Jungle Doctors, a previously featured band that never ceases to delight my ears with their rambunctious and glistening rock music. New single Settle is a ray of sun kissed radiance, slicing through the air with charming harmonies and a lively tempo. An Editors and The Strokes like post punk vibe mixes with the song’s melodic Two Door Cinema Club brightness.

Mysterious new UK collective CROOX dropped their debut single Oracle at the beginning of the year, and it was a dark and soulful electropop stunner that won me over immediately. CROOX follows that huge tune up with another emotionally stacked electronic song, Settle. Less murky and moody than Oracle, it’s a alluring, mid-tempo, and steamy electronic R&B gem. The boys will announce a debut live show in the UK soon.

When I first saw that Kimbra’s Settle Down had been remixed, I was sort of on dubious ground, not really knowing what to expect. I should’ve known the remix would be a jaw dropping ordeal, considering the producer on deck is Vermont’s young and talented P A T H (he’s only 16!), who’s already given us some glitchy works of art in the past. Under his expert tuning, Kimbra’s Settle Down has become something practically unrecognizable from the New Zealand songstress’ original pop song. Other production acts that come to mind as I listen through this, for the hundredth time, include Wave Racer and Cashmere Cat, among many others. The remix is a bubbly, effervescent study in hypnosis and texture.

OFFICIAL VID: Disclosure – Grab Her

January 17, 2014

Disclosure’s Settle, as I’ve lectured a million times before, was one of the best dance albums of 2013, and one of the top five albums of the year overall. It was such a spectacular game changer of a debut by the London duo. It made huge waves and ripples in the scene, influencing so many other artists and the direction of the electronic scene in the whole wide world. It’s been awhile since we were floored by Settle, but here we are with a brand new video for Settle track Grab Her. And it’s so dang good to revisit anything off that brilliant, funky, deep house thrasher of an album. Oh, the video’s pretty entertaining, too!

This one is possibly one of the best remixes to arise today. There’s no doubt that UK duo Disclosure’s debut album Settle is one of THE best albums of the year, and likely the number one dance album of the year. The boys will release a Settle remix album come December 17. For mad crazy sick dopeness, check out the Kaytranada remix of Jamie Woon collaboration January, which will be on that release. The Canadian producer takes the UK house tune and gives it an insanely slick sheen, focusing in on the R&B side of it more. It’s as smooth as a baby’s bottom. Hot stuff.

OFFICIAL VID: Disclosure – F For You

June 24, 2013

In other big video release news of the day, UK duo Disclosure dropped some visuals for their track F For You off excellent debut album Settle. It’s a simple minimalist clip of the duo playing the catchy, finger snapping earworm live. I’ve been having a lot of fun blasting Settle. F For You isn’t my absolute fave off the release, but it’s still a great grooving jam. Every song off Settle is good, plus the guest vocalists are awesome (London Grammer, Ed Mcfarlane of Friendly Fires, Jessie Ware, AlunaGeorge, etc!). It’s been tough selecting a favorite track off the album. For awhile, Confess To Me with Jessie Ware was a favorite (after the initial fanaticism for White Noise with AlunaGeorge), but right now, the smooth, gorgeous Help Me Lose My Mind featuring London Grammer is at the top.
