UK cosmic-disco specialists and avid vinyl collectors Psychemagik have returned with “Magik Sunset”, the final chapter in their excellent “Magik” compilation series, which comes split into two parts. Once again, the unstoppable duo of Danny McLewin and Tom Coveney are digging deep into their endless collection of vinyls for those obscure and long-lost Balearic gems. Picking up from where the previous “Magik Sunrise” compilation left off, “Magik Sunset” is yet another quality selection of tracks mainly released in extremely small numbers, sometimes only on private presses and only reaching specific parts of the world.

While the sublime Part One is still on repeat mode on our car stereo, Psychemagik are getting ready to drop the “Magik Sunset Part Two”, a selection of 13 tracks that ranges through the ’70s and ’80s covering soul, funk, disco and folk. This one will surely be a damn fine soundtrack for your late summer car rides. As with previous albums all tracks have been mastered from original vinyl to get the best possible sound quality. Pure magik!

Check out the “Magik Sunset” mini-mixes for Part One and Part Two below.

The “Magik Sunset Part One” compilation is out now through Leng Records. Get it here.
Part Two will drop on September 4th. Pre-order it here.

We can always count on quality from Belgian-born, now Berlin-based producer/DJ Tim Van de Meutter, aka Locked Groove, and his dark and deep track “Eleven” is no exception. This one has been floating around the web for a while now, but it will finally see the light of day next week on Life and Death. True to form, the nearly seven-minute track finds Locked Groove delivering an absolute banger of a tune with a powerful driving feel. “Eleven” is our favorite cut from the label’s new Various Artists EP called “Some Things Rise”, which also features new tracks from Scuba, Sei A and Alex.Do.

Various Artists – “Some Things Rise” EP drops on August 3rd via Life and Death.

Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio is further teasing new tracks from his forthcoming debut solo album “The Names” under his eponymous DJ name Baio. After sharing a fun video for his ridiculously catchy tune “Sister Of Pearl” just a few days ago, Baio just dropped another new track called “Endless Rhythm”, and it’s just one more good reason to get excited about “The Names”. You can now watch the lyric video for the track, directed by Daniel Navetta and Tyler Haft. Named after Don DeLillo’s 1982 novel, the nine-track record is said to contain “Bowie and Ferry-influenced pop songs and dumbsmart arena techno.”

Aeroplane’s Vito De Luca brings some serious vibes with his new single “Come Back Baby”, an infectious summer groover under his new Flush moniker. Clocking in at nearly eight minutes, this one will get some serious rotations on our car stereo these long hot days. We’d expect nothing less from the mighty Italian-Belgian producer. You can stream the full version of “Come Back Baby” above.

In his own words: “Flush is a new project I started in order to release all edits and reworks I do on planes and in airport lounges. It will be focused on house music from the early days. Often sample-based but not always, it’s a mixture of Chicago house and French Touch à la Crydamoure. Initially the plan was to just put these out on the internet, but the people at Strictly Rhythm thought the first song ‘Come Back Baby’ was good enough to release.”

Flush’s “Come Back Baby” is out now digitally via Strictly Rhythm. Get it here.
