We’ve lost count of the amount of new releases coming our way from Stockholm’s Johan Cederberg, aka HNNY, but it’s safe to say that this incredibly talented producer continues to amaze us without ever sacrificing quality for quantity. Back in August, HNNY launched his very own “Honey Pot”, his new vinyl-only imprint Yummy, with the release of the single-sided “Surf Dude” 12″, a perfect laid-back piece of Balearic bliss, and now he’s back with a new offering.

The label’s first release also comes from HNNY himself in the form of a three-track 12″, which is set to drop in October. Our first taste from that forthcoming record is “12.00″, another fine example of HNNY’s unmistakably style. Give it a spin above, and pre-order your 12” here.

After dropping the single “Where Does This Disco?” just a few weeks ago, Los Angeles-based synth-dance duo YACHT are already back with “Works Like Magic”, another new track from their forthcoming EP on their brand-new label Downtown Records. “Works Like Magic”, the first song they’ve written with the band’s live members Jeffrey Brodsky and Rob “Bobby Birdman” Kieswetter, is an infectious funky tune that stays true to its name. It also featured in a Google Chromecast ad.

In YACHT’s own words: “The science fiction writer J.G. Ballard once said that “sex times technology equals the future.” We argue that sex and technology coexist in our present: we touch, we push buttons, we seek intimacy in screens. When we connect, it works like magic.” The “Where Does This Disco?” EP will arrive on November 11th via Downtown Records. Buy a copy of “Works Like Magic” here.

Take a ride with “Skulls”, the darkly new single from Röyksopp’s fifth and final traditional album “The Inevitable End”, their first full-length since 2010′s “Senior”, which will arrive on November 11th via Cherrytree/Interscope. The 12-track album finds the Norwegian producers Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland move into “darker subject matter, with emphasis on the lyrical content. This candid approach feels very both personal, sincere and conclusive,” they say. “With this album it became clear we wanted to make an album in a classical sense even if it’s the last one we make…We feel like this is a goodbye to the traditional album format.”

“The Inevitable End” will feature guest appearances from Jamie McDermott of orchestral pop group The Irrepressibles, Man Without Country’s Ryan James, Norwegian singer/songwriter Susanne Sundfør and Robyn. Stream the album’s opener “Skulls” above and watch the new video for “The Inevitable End” version of their Robyn collaboration “Monument” below. Directed by Stian Andersen, the video was shot on Röyksopp and Robyn’s “Do It Again” tour through 2014. Pre-order the album here.

We just can’t get enough of Andras & Oscar’s smooth house tunes. While their soulful track “Everytime I Go” is still on repeat on our car stereo, the duo of Melbourne’s artists and close friends Andy Wilson, aka Andras Fox, and Oscar S. Thorn, aka Oscar Key Sung, have dropped this one-shot video for their superb second single “Looking Back”, taken from their upcoming new LP “Café Romantica”. This clip features lots of friends, some nice dance moves and animals. According to Andras Fox, the video is a “direct homage to one of my favourite Australian bands, The Reels, and their incredible clip for ‘I Don’t Love You Anymore’.”

Andras & Oscar’s new album “Café Romantica”, the follow-up to last year’s mini-LP “Embassy Café”, will land on October 17th via Chapter Music/Dopeness Galore. You can pre-order your copy here.
