Power duo, Arches, came onto the scene strong last year with their powerful Whitney Houston remix, and the collaborative project from Seba (Moonlight Matters) and Jochen (Sound of Stereo) is set for blast off in 2014 with a signing to Columbia Records for their debut single, “There’s A Place,” which was just premiered to the world via the lovely Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 this morning.

Taking inspiration from the earlier days of House music, Arches find a pleasant equilibrium between the classic sounds of dance music from their native Belgium along with a new age bounce that is unquestionably catchy. The big debut single will be accompanied by a B-side featuring the talents of vocalist Gustaph (of Hercules and Love Affair fame), making for one exciting introduction. Listen to “There’s A Place” below. √+

Arches is the new conglomerate project featuring members of Moonlight Matters, Sound of Stereo, and Hercules and Love Affair — combining analogue sounds with contemporary House influences. The supergroup’s first two original productions, “Higher” and “Hurting,” were debuted on The Magician’s famous Magic Tapes (Thirty-Three and Thirty-Four) last month, creating a buzz around the newly formed collaboration. Today, Arches have given us the premiere for their first mix, featuring one of the aforementioned originals in addition to new ones from Isaac Tichauer, Peter & The Magician, Cyril Hahn, and more. Keep an eye on these guys!

UK singer/songwriter Little Boots bursts out of quasi-retirement today with her new single ‘Every Night I Say A Prayer’, which is a dreamy house number produced by Hercules and Love Affair front man Andy Butler. The single is accompanied by a bumpin’ Tensnake remix that screams 80s fluoro and big hair. Download both after the jump…

So what it’s a Monday. Turn that frown upside-down after listening to this pick-me-up of a track. Smiles and sun all around.

Chromeo – When The Night Falls (Hercules And Love Affair Remix)
I posted the Breakbot remix of this track last week which had the standard Disco feel to it. This rendition from Hercules And Love Affair throws in a pretty catchy synth lead in the mix. Give it a go.

Little Dragon – Ritual Union (Tensnake Remix) [Beatport]
The Swedish band, Little Dragon, released the EP for ‘Ritual Union’ last week on Peacefrog Records, featuring touch-ups from Tensnake, Maya Jane Coles, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Tensnake turns the tempo down in this remix to create a really great track. Grab Little Dragon’s full length album on July 26th.

Azari & III – Manic [The Finger Prince 'Static Situation' remix] by PurplePR
Great new remix from Bang Gang rep, The Finger Prince. Can’t wait for this release.
