Chicago’s Rogue Vogue returns with yet another groovy House cut; this time featuring Nashville vocalist Patrick Baker whose passionate delivery is reminiscent of the legendary Todd Edwards. This is the first time Rogue Vogue has collaborated on an original production with a vocalist — his past offerings have been mostly sample based — but the outcome is a success without question. It’s always nice to be able to sing along to a House track, and Rogue Vogue serves it up nicely with “Until The Dawn.” Download it here. √+
Todd Edwards is a G. Besides his obvious accolades like working with the robots on multiple albums and releasing scores of singles and remixes in his 20+ year career, his vocal reconstruction technique in productions (along with another G, Marc Kinchen) has truly set him apart over the rollercoaster ride of dance music in America since the 90s. To call Todd Edwards an innovator would be absolutely spot on, which is why the reputable XLR8R asked him to put together an hour long selection for their new mix series, Innovators.
This is honestly one of the better mixes that I’ve heard in a while, and the high number of quality unreleased tracks that Edwards has included in here is just splendid. Get it on ya. √+

While the commercial dance music sound seems to still be sweeping across the United States like a swarm of locusts, there is an unbelievable amount of tasteful House, Garage, and Bass coming out of the UK, more specifically London, at the moment. Duke Dumont, Bicep, George Fitzgerald, and Dusky should ring a few bells, and there’s a new duo that needs to be included on this list, and they go by the name of Toyboy & Robin. With a solid foot in the House realm, another foot in Bass, and an elbow in R&B, Toyboy & Robin have created a perfect equilibrium of their sound — catchy, grooving, and undeniably danceable. On that note, the gents have put together an impeccable mix for us today, featuring the aforementioned Londoners as well as Nicolas Jaar, Toro y Moi, Todd Edwards, and many more. One of the better mixes I’ve heard in a long time. Make sure to keep an ear out for Toyboy & Robin’s April release “Jaded” in here as well. Top tune. √+

Besides being the vocals behind Disclosure’s hit single, “Latch,” Sam Smith has accrued a budding career and following behind his sexy and sensational vocals. His most recent release, “Lay Me Down,” had women and men alike swooning over his emotional performance on the single. The original was more of a bedroom classic, but Todd Edwards comes through with a dance floor edit to groove and spin your partner around the dance floor to. The sultry pipes of Sam Smith get slapped with a synth line of the deeper nature, a sound that’s all too unfamiliar from the UK songbirds collaboration with Disclosure. The original is available to buy on iTunes, but there is no word yet on this remix EP.
