After dropping his infectious groover “Come Back Baby” for Strictly Rhythm under his Flush moniker back in July, Aeroplane’s Vito De Luca is already back with his new “Page One Is Love” EP just to make these glorious days of summer last a little bit longer. The release finds Aeroplane delivering two finely crafted original tracks of early piano house. Here, we have for you the title track, featuring the voice of Frankie Knuckles’ longtime collaborator Jamie Principle, and it’s just about as good as it gets. As he says: “If life is a book, page one is love.”

The “Page One Is Love” EP, which also features the original track “Dancing With Each Other” and two remixes by CASSARA and Ten Ven, is out now digitally via Eskimo Recordings. Stream the whole thing here, and get your copy here.

Melbourne heat beat collective NO ZU first wowed us late last year with their percussive funk jam “Raw Vis Vision” of horns and disco whistles, a standout cut from Cut Copy’s excellent “Oceans Apart” compilation. Following the release of their ace “Medusa Music” 12”, heavily inspired by Hellenic culture, NO ZU are back in action and in fine form with their new single “Ui Yia Uia”, their debut release for Chapter Music. Filled with bombastic horns and infectious layers of percussion, this slow boogie groover is another quality example of NO ZU doing what they do best. Play it loud.

The single “Ui Yia Uia” is the first taste from NO ZU’s forthcoming new album “Afterlife”, the follow-up to 2012’s debut “Life”, which is expected to arrive early next year via Chapter Music. Pick up your copy of “Ui Yia Uia” here.
