Exactly one year ago, Los Angeles-based producer Daniel.T. dropped his sun-soaked, debut mini-album “Tetrachromat” on Young Adults. Now, he’s back with a gentle rendition of Tatsuro Yamashita’s 1976 city-pop classic, “Windy Lady.” Featuring lovely vocals from up-and-coming singer Eiko Hara, the finely crafted track is out now on Poolside’s Turbotito newly minted imprint, Tito Records. The record comes complete with two fine remixes, an atmospheric, electronic-reggae version by Harriet Brown, and a funky, modern-AOR version by Tito Records label head Turbotito. The original version of “Windy Lady” and Turbotito’s extended “DJ” remix are now available for free download. Enjoy the ride.

Boston duo Soul Clap are back with their second self-titled album that has been four years in the making. Our first taste from the upcoming record comes in the form of “Shine (This Is It)”, a piano-driven house anthem featuring legendary vocalist Nona Hendryx, a founding member of the group Labelle. Speaking about the album, Charles Levine, one half of the duo, said: “it digs deep into our funky souls and turns our wildest dreams into sound. If ‘EFUNK’ [their first album] was an attempt to create a blueprint using our past inspirations, then “Soul Clap” is the beautiful skyscraper, standing tall as it looks to the future.” The album will drop on October 14th on on !K7 Records/Crew Love.

The single “Shine (This Is It)” comes backed with a pair of remixes from Erodiscotique, a collaboration between Dimitri From Paris and DJ Rocca. You can grab a free download of Erodiscotique’s instrumental version of “Shine (This Is It)” below. Classy!

Buffy Sainte-Marie: “Poppies (Vito & Druzzi Rework)”

Brooklyn-based house duo Vito & Druzzi, aka The Rapture’s Vito Roccoforte and Gabriel “Druzzi” Andruzzi, continues to churn out quality edits, this time with this excellent rework of “Poppies” by the legendary folk singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie. The original track is taken from her sixth album “Illuminations”, which was released in 1969. It’s yours for free.

Speaking about the “Poppies” edit, Vito says: “I vividly remember buying the Buffy Saint-Marie album ‘Illuminations’ at a record store called Jerry’s in Pittsburgh. Jerry’s was a regular stop on tour where we’d usually spend a day buying and looking at records. When I found Illuminations I didn’t know anything about the album or much about Buffy Sainte-Marie but I liked the artwork and thought it looked like an interesting album so I bought it. It turned out to be a total gem. Poppies was always a standout track on the album, the vocal on Poppies is really beautiful and works seamlessly with the backing track. I’ve been meaning to rework it for years.”

Brooklyn-based DJ and producer Max McFerren, also sometimes known as MCFERRDOG, returns to Vancouver’s 1080p label with a nine-track cassette called “S/T” under his new alias Complete Walkthru. According to the label, Complete Walkthru is a break from the intuitive motivations guiding McFerren’s past work. Here we find a more self reflective mood within more familiar electronic territories. House shaded with breaks, deep and wonky techno excursions, bright melodic loops and super weird, uplifting vocals make up these two sides and nine tracks. Our first taste from the album comes in the form of “Blatant Doug”, and it’s a great tune. Grab it for free below.

Download it here.

Complete Walkthru’s “S/T” arrives on cassette and digital formats on July 29th.
