We introduced you to Clarens the project of Senegal-born, France-raised musician and producer Ousseynou Cissé, back in May, sharing his brilliant debut single “Trust”, a “song about lost friendships”, which was also included on Yuksek’s label Partyfine first anniversary compilation. Now, Clarens, who also plays bass for Parisian duo Juveniles, returns to Partyfine with his second single “Pray”, another finely crafted tune with a serious R&B feel to it. The track was produced by Yuksek and Jean-Sylvain Le Gouic (of Juveniles).

“When I arrived in Rennes I was determined to become a musician by any means, not only because it is music that makes me feel alive, but also because music is the only thing I can do properly. I wrote this song as a prayer towards anyone who could help me become the person I am today-I didn’t know at the time that my wish would be fulfilled that fast,” says Clarens. Give “Pray” a spin or two above, and revisit the video for “Trust” here.

Clarens’ new single “Pray” will arrive on November 24th via Partyfine.

After sharing news of their forthcoming sophomore album “Natural Selection” last month, Art Department, the Canadian duo of Jonny White and Kenny Glasgow, have dropped the record’s first single “Cruel Intentions”, a moody, late-night affair which features vocals from Seth Troxler. The new record, which follows the pair’s acclaimed 2011 debut album “The Drawing Board”, is said to explore a “deeper and more mature and experimental sound that unravels through the duo’s trademark murderous basslines, raw textures, expert production and distinctively melancholy vocals.” “Natural Selection” will drop on November 18th via Johny White’s No.19 Music label.

The “Cruel Intentions” single, backed with remixes by Soul People label boss Fred P and Ibadan Records’ own Jerome Sydenham, will come out on October 27th.

Norwegian disco king Todd Terje takes us for a crazy ride with his new video for his great tune “Delorean Dynamite”, taken from his excellent debut album “It’s Album Time”. The video is also an ad for Frank’s 1981 Delorean DMC-12. Frank was kind enough to let Terje use the Delorean for his live visuals. Eventually, Frank decided it was time to sell his prized automobile, so in return for his generosity, Terje offered his music and Terje’s collaborator, Espen Friberg (the director who made the “Leisure Suit Preben” video) offered to make him a video to help him sell it. Vrooom!
