Norwegian disco pioneers Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas have worked their remix magic once again on “Born Into The Sunset”, the lastest single from British neo-psychers Temples. Infusing the original track with their own unigue brand of space-disco, “Born Into The Sunset” is transformed into a seven-minute cosmic ride. The track is taken from the band’s recent sophomore album “Volcano” on Heavenly Recordings/Fat Possum. Get yourself a copy of the remix here.

[Premiere] Crooked Man: “Happiness (12 Inch Version)”

Sheffield maverick Richard Barratt, formerly DJ Parrot, one half of the “Bleep Techno” duo Sweet Exorcist and part of the dance act All Seeing I, is a man of many talents and aliases. Last year, he dropped his self-titled debut LP for DFA Records under his Crooked Man moniker. A great album that truly showcased his incredible blend of wonky electronic rhythms, heavy bass and razor sharp, politically aware lyrics. One of the record’s standout cuts was the epic closer “Happiness”, a piano-led house banger with soulfully seductive diva vocals. The rich and powerful vocals for “Happiness” were sung by Amy Douglas, who’s also the singer in Juan Maclean’s side-project Peach Melba.

Now, Crooked Man’s instant-classic “Happiness” gets a new EP with three alternate versions of the track. The record also includes a killer “12 Inch version” of “Happiness” that clocks in at eleven minutes. You can stream stream it exclusively on La.Ga.Sa. “‘Happiness’ is about nostalgia, specifically the yearning, happy/sad feeling of hearing an old record that you love”, says Richard Barratt.

Crooked Man’s “Happiness” EP drops on June 23 on DFA. Pre-order it here.

After dropping the addictive electro-house single “Controller”, featuring The Horrors’ Faris Badwan, Andy Butler’s New York disco-house collective Hercules & Love Affair are back with their new single from their upcoming fourth studio album “Omnion”. The album’s title track finds Hercules & Love Affair joined forces with Sharon Van Etten to deliver a triumphant sliver of tuneful electronica. The new 11-track album, which follows 2014’s “The Feast of the Broken Heart”, is about “a queering of faith, creating room for the questioning “others” in a perfectly imperfect temple,” says Andy Butler. The album also features a list of guest appearances including Gustaph, Rouge Mary, Mashrou’ Leila, and Sisy Ey.

The album “Omnion” arrives on September 1 via Beat Big Records. Pre-order it here.

London-based house producer Mike Greene, aka Fort Romeau, returns with his new self-released EP, entitled “Reasons”, which marks his first full solo release since last year’s great “Secrets & Lies” EP on Live At Robert Johnson. Consisting of three original tracks, the record is yet another prime example of Fort Romeau’s unique sound. The title track sees the development of the producer’s interest in playing with the human voice, developing a harmonic and rhythmic hook which builds to a crescendo of wailing synths. Blast it above.

The “Reasons” EP is out now on vinyl, while the digital version will come out on June 30th. Pick up your 12” here.

On June 30th, Baio, aka Vampire Weekend’s bassist Chris Baio, will drop his second solo album “Man Of The World” on Glassnote, which follows 2015’s debut LP “The Names”. According to the man himself, the new album is “partially about being trapped in my own head, obsessing about things it was too late to change, feeling afraid and guilty and alone. It’s also my attempt to document a certain sense of loss that felt both intensely personal and like part of a larger collective experience many were going through at once.” Here’s “DANGEROUE ANAMAL”, another new track from the record. It’s a slow-burn beauty.

As he says: “With the ‘Midnight Versions’ I wanted to show the dancefloor influence on the album, and turn the tracks into longer edits, with more time to breathe and evolve.” Take a ride with Roosevelt’s great “Midnight Version” of “Night Moves”, a first glimpse of what to expect from his upcoming release.
