Leave The Door Open – Silk Sonic (Anderson .Paak & Bruno Mars)
The first release of the project that is sure to soundtrack 2021 has finally arrived and it is glorious. When two superstars team up, you know you’re going to get hits. “Leave The Door Open” is the first track from Silk Sonic which teams up two of the biggest modern stars, Anderson .Paak & Bruno Mars. On it, we get a classic RnB hit that uses the beautiful voice of Bruno and the catchy vocals of Anderson to make anyone feel like grooving. Can’t wait to hear the rest of this incredible project!

Hidden Treasure – Toro (ft. Polocorp)
French electro pop duo, Toro, teams up with Polocorp of Polo & Pan for a fun and unique track that feels amazing on the ears. With some funky beats, fun synths, and chopped up vocals, the duo cook up a track that is reminiscent of Polocorp’s other recent work and will definitely get you moving.

Satisfy – Patawawa
We have really grown to love and respect the English disco group, Patawawa, over the last year. Their music is electric, funky, and super fun to dance to, and it’s refreshing to get all this from a band instead of a producer. On their new track “Satisfy,” we get their usual funky bassline and guitar riffing along with some nice keys to make a song that is quite the vibe, even without any vocals.

Body & Soul – Emotional Oranges (ft. Biig Piig)
Electronic RnB duo Emotional Oranges have an awesome sound and have released some great tracks over the last year. On their most recent, “Body & Soul,” they team up with singer Biig Piig to craft a laid back RnB track that is sensual and relaxing.

Sensational – Anti Up (Chris Lake & Chris Lorenzo)
Anti Up is at it again! Leaders in the realm of tech house, Chris Lorenzo and Chris Lake, are back for their long-awaited reunion. “Sensational” is different from what you’d expect from either artist, carrying a really fun 90’s disco vibe with a unique Anti Up twist!

SHOW ME THE WAY – Jon Batiste (ft. Zadie Smith)
In Jon Batiste’s newest single, “SHOW ME THE WAY,” he collabs with the world renowned author/novelist Zadie Smith. As always this song pulls on our heart strings in the best way.

I Can Never Be Yours – Coeo
Coeo is a Berlin based House/Electronic duo who also run a successful record company called Toy Tonics. If you like dreamy disco like house this is the right music for you.

LEAVE ME – Peach Tree Rascals
California based music collective Peach Tree Rascals originally got big by going viral on Tik-Tok for their track “Mariposa.” Their follow-ups to that track have been just as impressive. On their new track “LEAVE ME,” we get some super summer-y vibes with their fun beat and guitar plucking along with some awesome vocals from the group.

Get Yourself Together – Dantiez, KPD, & Sebb Junior
Nothing beats some new funky house music! “Get Yourself Together” is that and more with a moving beat, super funky bassline, and ultra catchy vocal. We can’t wait to groove to this one on the dancefloor!

Miles To Go – Kaskade & Ella Vos
If you like some of Kaskade’s older classics, this deeper-style house track is for you. The track starts with an enchanting vocal and builds into a deep and emotional house tune with layers of washed-out synths and some really fun trance-style sounds. 

2-Track Single Ask Me / Mesmerize – Duck Sauce, A-Trak, & Armand Van Helden
Three of dance music’s best producers have teamed up for 2 tracks that are guaranteed to get you on the dance-floor. With Duck Sauce, A-Trak, & Armand Van Helden all coming together for these tracks, they both are funky, groovy, and upbeat with awesome disco feels. They will definitely be played in the DJ circuit when things come back.

EP Disco Hits – Patrick Topping, Hayley Topping, & Gerd Janson
House and techno star, Patrick Topping, released a new single EP featuring his sister Hayley on the vocals. “Disco Hits” is a trippy, fun, and moving track that includes a healthy amount of cowbell. The remix released with it by Gerd Janson is a little less in your face, but is just as fun and trippy as the original.

Album When You See Yourself – Kings of Leon
Rock band, Kings of Leon, fully released their first album in 5 years today. The album, titled “When You See Yourself,” has the some of the same sound that we love from the modern rock band, but also builds in some new sounds that evolve the music. Some of our favorites from it are “Stormy Weather,” “The Bandit,” & “100,000 People.”

3-Track Single Scary Hours 2 – Drake (ft. Lil Baby & Rick Ross)
D Rake is back with 3 tracks that evoke the typical Drake sound. It is an exciting showing of what’s to come from the pop superstars looming album. The track “Lemon Pepper Freestyle” highlights the fun and interesting lyricism of Drake and Rick Ross as well. “Wants and Needs” with Lil Baby is also impressive as two of rap’s biggest artists team up.
