Passerine has dropped the funkiest, dance/disco track of 2014 so far and its called ‘Free Again’.
If you want to feel weak at the knees, then press the play button on the soundcloud clip below. ‘Free Again’ is like a more exciting version of a Daft Punk single, with Passerine’s vocals exploding into a 70s fuzz fest of suave. I love the dance vibe, the homage to sounds of the past, and the silky production on this number. Simply, this song is cool. That is all.
Zephyr is the solo project of Melbourne up and coming DJ Nicholas Bond, with ‘You Need The Bass’ quickly becoming one of my favourite tracks of the new year.
Bond has managed to take a regular house music and bring it to the next slightly more calypso level. ‘You Need The Bass’ is an awesome arrangement of Caribbean pop come house music, that just makes you go from relaxing to swaying to dancing within the first listen. A little reminiscent of Fat Boy Slim, its just the track to get you going before summer is out.
Melbourne Disco electro duo Back Back Forward Punch have unleashed a funky new single called ‘Emergency Bow Tie’.
With some real nods towards towards the likes of LCD Soundsystem and Chromeo, ‘Emergency Bow Tie’ is one of those songs that is best described as “cool”. Scratch that, “Super cool”. Its upbeat, catchy, chilled, has intentional glitches, super smooth sections and leaves you going ‘Fuck Yes, lets play that again’. These guys have nailed the production to create the sleekest of indie electro tracks. It’s a definite party starter, and the perfect way to bring in summer. Get on this one guys.

So whether it’s by the pool, a backing track to your pres or even making your commute that bit cooler, the boys at LSD have got you covered.
I had heard ‘The Dofflin’ several times, and never managed to work out who was responsible. Finally I worked out it was Cosmos Midnight.
Now here is a duo that is showing some real promise. Two twins armed with a host of indie swag have unleashed a form of electronica thick with synth, doused with hip hop beats and production that can only be described as pure class. The tune just sucks you into this craze that leaves you unable to decide whether to break into dance or just chillax and role with the beats. It is the goods, and these guys are going to wow crowds and pick up swags of fans at Listen Out. Don’t miss their set!
Sydney electronic trio Tokyo Denmark Sweden have returned with a ripping new single called ‘Turning Time’.
If you loved previous singles such as ‘When It Breaks’, then ‘Turning Time’ is going to blow your mind. Driving beats, soaked in silky synth and a slathering of suave guitars just melt this track into one of our favourite tunes of the year so far. Amy’s vocals are once again stunning, but it is the top notch, verging on flawless production that brings this track together, despite so much going on, that makes this track so freaking awesome. Kudos to TDS they have delivered their best single yet.
