CHVRCHES are set to come out with a new single soon and have commissioned the help of Groundislava to work his magic on their electro pop anthem, “Gun.” He brings a jungle/island house sounding vibe to the break and amplifies the danceability to the track with a pumping hi-hat loop that will have you up on your feet in no time. You can pre-order the new Gun EP itunes in the U.K. but no official date on a release for the U.S.

Future Classic‘s own, Touch Sensitive isn’t a sound, it’s a feeling. It’s served frothy, always smooth, and imported strait from down under.

Earlier this fall Jerome LOL set out on a West Coast tour with Classixx, Cosmic Kids, and RAC for some of the most infectious summer time music when everyone was having summer withdrawals. Classixx were a crowd favorite, and then “Holding On” surfaced late last month and the internet was abuzz with this summertime sensation. It would appear Jerome couldn’t get the song out of his head, along with everyone else who heard these endorphin packed vibes, as he set out to create this remix for them. It does a great job of building and resolving into the original chords as his minimalistic percussion patterns create a comfortable dance environment for you to get down to. Out digitally and 12″ on April 2nd on Leisure Recordings, be sure to make sure your spring playlists are as forward as they can be with this summer time anthem.

The talented sisters of HAIM have released a Duke Dumont edit to their record, “Falling.” HAIM is a band that has been around since ’06, but didn’t start releasing music until recently in 2012. Their sound is often described as nu-folk, a genre that will fit in great with Duke Dumont’s extensive genre-spanning discography. He brings a particularly lighter feel to this edit as compared to some of his recent work that associates with a deeper late night sound. At times there is even a bit of a moombahton beat to the drum pattern. You can pre-order your limited edition pink vinyl copy of this remix EP featuring a remix from Psychemagik here.

 

Fresh off the success of his long awaited track “Excommunication”, Erkka returns with a remix of fellow countryman Lucky Stripes.  18-year old Finnish producer Lucky Stripes gets the remix treatment from Erkka on his new track “You Take Me Dancing”.  While the whole tropical disco fad seems to have died down, Erkka adds in a new twist of club-friendly tropical flair on his remix of “You Take Me Dancing”.  The outcome is a disco-electro dance floor scorcher.
