Say hello to Body Music, a collaborative project between The Rapture’s Vito Roccoforte, who also operates as one half of Vito & Druzzi and Boston’s producer and multi-instrumentalist Bosq. Bonding over a mutual love for raw, funky disco, house music and jazzy gospel piano licks, the two began passing unfinished ideas back and forth until a debut EP took shape. Entitled “Just One”, the well-crafted record features four tracks of all-original deep disco flavor. Here, we have the EPs title track, a disco-house stomper featuring vocals from Christian Holiday and the groove-filled “Drum Mix” of the b-side cut “Get It Baby”. The record comes complete with two reworks by Lay-Far and Patchworks.

The “Just One” EP is out now on Razor-N-Tape. Pick up your 12” here.

The Golden Filter: “There Is No Love Between Us”

London-via-New York electronic duo The Golden Filter, aka Penelope Trappes and Stephen Hindman, return to Glasgow’s Optimo Music with their second album STILL // ALONE, a follow-up to 2010’s debut “Voluspa”. The new nine-track record is separated into two distinct sides: record one, STILL, is a hypnotic meditation for the nightclub, while record two, ALONE, takes the club offline and into the fringes of raw, odd pop. Today, we’re treated to a stream of the record’s new single “There Is No Love Between Us”. It feels good to have them back in such fine form.

The STILL // ALONE album arrives on February 24th. Pre-order it here.

It’s been over two years since Talaboman’s excellent “Sidereal” EP, a joint release out on Hivern Discs and Studio Barnhus. It was John Talabot and Axel Boman’s collaborative debut and marked a new sound for the pair, consisting of rich synth motifs and vivid, afro-infused drum programming. Now, the pair come back together with a debut album, titled “The Night Land”, which was recorded in Barcelona, Stockholm, and Gothenburg in sessions that produced an “absurd amount of music”. Set to drop on March 3 via R&S records, “The Night Land” continues Talaboman’s head-first dive into the deeper reaches of their conjoined musical creativity. Our first taste from the forthcoming record comes in the form of the hazy, slow-burner “Safe Changes”, and it’s a great one. Give it a spin above.

While his killer disco-leaning burner “Absence Of Rhythm”, his latest single for Eskimo Recordings, is still getting plenty of spins on our car stereo, Munich-based Australian producer TSM, aka This Soft Machine, returns to our ears with something rather special. Let’s take a cosmic ride with his remix of fellow Aussie Flight Facilities’ stellar Claude Debussy-inspired track “Clair De Lune”, featuring vocals from Christine Hoberg. Made for his own DJ sets a while ago, now we’ve finally got our hands on this great reworked version of “Clair De Lune” that finds TSM in fine form, injecting the original track with a healthy dose of disco vibes. Blast it above, exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.

In related news, TSM’s latest single “Absence Of Rhythm” will also be featured on Eskimo Recordings’ new 14-track compilation “The Red Collection”, which will drop on March 3.

Parisian beatmaker Arnaud Bernard, aka Onra, is getting ready to drop the third and final installment of his sample-based “Chinoiseries” project of dusty Chinese and Vietnamese inspired hip-hop instrumentals. Set to drop on March 10th on All City Records, the “Chinoiseries Pt. 3” features 32 tracks made using the style of analogue MPC production.

In his own words: “I see the first Chinoiseries as a trip, inspired by my own first travel to Asia, each beat representing one particular moment of the journey, the second one, more like a soundtrack to a movie, each beat representing a different scene, and the third one, I tried to create a dark, smoky and mysterious cinematic atmosphere so you could create your own movie in your head.” You can stream two new tracks, “The Spirit Blossoms All Over The Land” and “Autumn Moon Shining Over The Calm Lake”.
