A few years ago, we knew Spencer Ludwig as the dashing trumpet guy in Capital Cities. Fast forward to today, and the fast rising vocalist/instrumentalist is quickly etching out his own space in the indie scene as a solo artist. Spencer embarks on the next phase of that career with the release of his latest single, Just Wanna Dance, an utterly infectious eruption of disco funk imbued glittery pop. Of course, no Spencer Ludwig track is complete without some jocular trumpet solos to keep us grooving. The only thing left to do is to get up and dance the night away to the fresh and funky treat. The rest of 2018 is going to be massive for Spencer Ludwig. YouTube chose him as one of ten acts for their prestigious “Artists In Residence” program. He kicked off the year opening for The Chainsmokers and Jason Derulo, and he just wrapped up his tour with Betty Who, but he’ll be performing at Bonnaroo and so much more in the coming months, too. Just Wanna Dance is available, here.

I was sold from the beginning of Rewind, when those flirty trumpets and Ashe’s sassy sweet voice enticed us into Louis Futon’s new single. Rewind, which also features Philadelphia hip hop artist Armani White on guest vocals, is quite the funky soulful, brassy playful summer treat. No day can be glum and no night can be bleak when you’re swaying in bliss to this effulgent dalliance, whose spry keys and whimsical beats will leave you beaming in jubilation. Lucky for us, we don’t have to “rewind” before we get to hit the play button once again once the youthful and coltish song ends far too soon. Rewind is a free download, here. Support on iTunes, here.

I happened to catch part of Prisoners on television the other day again when I realized that the son in the film was played by Dylan Minnette, the dreamy actor whom most would recognize as Clay from Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why. Turns out, just like many of his talented Netflix brethren from Stranger Things, Dylan is also a musician. He’s a member of Los Angeles three piece Wallows, who have just released a new single named Sun Tan, a dusty crunching indie rocker with a whole lot of vintage charm. Sun Tan’s effusion of fetching trumpeting come by way of NativetoEarth. Sun Tan follows last month’s Pleaser, also a hooking chugger that channels some early The Strokes in its rhythmic strumming garage rock. Stream pleasing Pleaser below, and let’a all await the new season of 13 Reasons Why and more treats from Wallows together.

For the most part, NERVO has fired us up with progressive house tracks in the past, but on new song Anywhere You Go, the Australian duo delivers some unexpected satin house. Joining them on the track is Timmy Trumpet, whose buttery smooth brass add to Anywhere You Go’s luxuriously sensual allure. NERVO prove themselves foxy producers on this chic and elegant, chill flowing sonic confection. Anywhere You Go is out now on Monstercat, Snag it from iTunes.

Detroit producer and saxophone auteur GRiZ is dropping a new album this Friday, and it’s been shaping up to be one of the season’s hottest electronic commodities. Just listen to newly revealed Gotta Push On, which features Brooklyn duo Brasstracks and vocals/guitar by Eric Krasno. It’s soul, funk, and horns galore on this molten jouncing, swanky swaggering jam. You can pre-order GRiZ’s talent studded album, Good Will Prevail, from iTunes.

Many know Spencer Ludwig as the dashing trumpeter from Capital Cities who adds so much steam to the band’s dazzling funk pop music. The musician has also worked with a remarkable list of other indie talent in the wake of Capital Cities massive success, but if there’s anything I’ve been long awaiting, it’s Spencer Ludwig’s solo debut. He makes a debonair entrance with Right Into U, a disco luscious summer sizzler. Throw on those dancing shoes, because Spencer’s sexy sleek song calls for some major dance floor shredding. Alongside Right Into U comes funky chic Diggy, which you can stream below. This one’s the epitome of frisky freaky fun. Right Into U and Diggy are both available now on various outlets, here and here respectively.

I first found out about Swedish electronic duo Jarami when they offered up a chic and resplendent remix of Wafia’s Heartburn a few months ago. The two piece is back with a fresh new “Jaramix” as they transform fellow Swede and eccentric pop artist Kill J’s You’re Good But I’m Better. They even team up with Marc E. Bassy for the song, and the Los Angeles based hip hop and R&B artist delivers a ravishing additional verse to this trumpet sleek, snazzy rich future soul revision.

The moment I saw the name ‘Vanic”, I knew this was going to be something exceptional. Each and every remix and flip the Vancouver producer has given us in the past have been jaw dropping magnificent. Sure enough, Vanic’s rendition of Bieber hit Love Yourself is the perfectly molded melodic future bass jewel. Though the remix leans further into electronic pop and summery house territory than some of Vanic’s prior tracks, its a fine fit for Bieber’s dewy vocals and the song’s saccharine charm. Purchase Vanic’s flawless edit for free, here.

I’ll keep it funky with a remix of French producer DGTO’s On & On, featuring Chuck New, by fellow Frenchman Mattanoll. On & On prances and skips with plenty of playful nu-disco spirit. It’s a classy and deep edit full of tropical incandescence and summery warmth. Mattanoll’s oh so French electro take on the song will keep that dance party jiggling away. Free download, here.

ØRKA, a relatively unknown newcomer from Miami, Florida, is about to become relatively known, if his exquisitely moving song Tell Me is any indication. Featuring poignant, earnest vocals by Brian Bibb, the deeply expansive and cosmic song has a huge dose of heart rending sentiment and enveloping production depth. It slowly builds up to a cathartic explosion of glitchy sound and mournful trumpet. You’ll need to pick yourself up in pieces from the floor after this stirring experience.
