Brazilian-born, Miami-raised, Milan-based artist Emmanuelle lands on Soulwax’s Deewee label with her second release, an EP called “L’uomo d’affari / Italove”, which follows last year’s infectious debut single “Free HiFi Internet”. Produced by David and Stephen Dewaele of Soulwax/2manydjs, the record finds Emmanuelle delivering two Italo-flavored tunes aimed firmly at the dancefloor. Our favorite cut is the EPs B-side “Italove”. It’s totally addictive.

The “L’uomo d’affari / Italove” EP is out now digitally on Deewee. Buy it here.

Factory Floor: “Dial Me In”

London’s Factory Floor, now officially a duo consisting of Nik Void and Gabriel Gurnsey, return to DFA with their second album “25 25”, which follows their hugely acclaimed 2013 self-titled debut. With their music stripped to a mesmerising dance of percussion, fragmented voice and melody, the new eight-track record captures the next vital stage in the evolution of one of the UK’s most restless and exploratory groups. Today, Factory Floor have shared the album’s lead single “Dial Me In”, which you can stream above.

Speaking of “Dial Me In”, Void says: “Being openly progressive has always been the Factory Floor way, be it via improvisational live shows, early Blast First releases, DFA reworks, or open studio collaborations and residencies. ‘Dial Me In’ was the first track Gabe and I wrote together for this record. At this time we were both exploring new set ups – some unfamiliar gear like modular systems, as well as various machines combined with regular old stuff like my Roland sampler, live drums and effected live vocals.”

The album “25 25” will arrive on August 19th via DFA. Pre-order it here.

Miami Horror’s Aaron Shanahan, also known as one half of the psych-pop duo Wunder Wunder alongside bandmate Benjamin Plant, has formed Sunday, a new solo project that draws inspiration from the Californian desert. “In the past year the desert has been calling me. With my ear to the earth, I spent much time listening to something out there that gave me inspiration, creation, direction and birth to Sunday,” he says.

Here, we have Sunday’s superb debut single “Waiting For You”, a wistful beauty that sounds tailor-made for bright sunny days. The single’s b-side cut “That’s Believing” is equally well-crafted with its warm, blissful vibe. Grab both tracks for absolutely free below, and keep your eyes peeled for more magic from Sunday.

Download the tracks “Waiting For You” and “That’s Believing” for free here.
