Say hello to Loframes, a new and exciting collaborative project between London singer-songwriter James Yuill and French producer, restaurateur and On The Fruit label owner Franck Russo. With a dozen of songs recorded already, ranging from euphoric house to introspective ballads and Heaven 17-esque electro-pop, Loframes just dropped their debut single “Get Real (Can’t Touch Your Love)” and it’s a winner. This brilliant debut single finds the pair delivering an addictive ’80s-infused synth-pop tune with James Yuill’s signature vocals. There’s also a playful saxophone solo. What a way to kick things off!

The single “Get Real (Can’t Touch Your Love)”, which comes complete with remixes from Parisian producer and Roche Musique co-founder Kartell and up-and-coming UK producer Aashton, will drop on March 9th.

Great news. Berlin-based UK producer and ManMakeMusic label boss George FitzGerald is gearing up for the release of his long-awaited debut album, called “Fading Love”, which will arrive on April 27th through Domino Records’ sublabel Double Six.

Recorded in both London and Berlin, the 10-track album LP is “an intriguingly textured debut album, touching on the more emotive and tactile spectrum of electronic music, while keeping one foot firmly planted on the dance floor.” Before it drops, here’s the album’s lead single “Full Circle”, featuring soft vocals from Boxed In, the brainchild of London producer Oli Bayston. It’s a delicate, mellow house tune perfectly suited for both headphones and the club. Pure class.

Pre-order the album here.

Polish house duo Catz ‘N Dogz, aka Grzegorz Demiañczuk and Wojciech Tarañczuk, have a new album on the way, entitled “Basic Colour Theory”. Described as “a fruitful collection of evocative melodies and gorgeous vocals”, Catz ‘N Dogz’s third album will drop on May 19th via their own Pets Recordings imprint. It follows the pair’s two previous full-lengths for Claude VonStroke’s Mothership label. Our first taste from the forthcoming LP comes in the form of “Good Touch”, featuring sultry vocals from Eglė Sirvydytė, and it’s a true gem in every sense. Blast it above.

“It’s our third album and we did a lot of research, preparation, reading, watching documentaries about the music scene, people and looking for inspirations everywhere. We were talking a lot about people who inspire us, art, creative process, philosophy and meaning of work and music in our life,” says Catz ‘N Dogz.
