Mexico is on fire and one massive collaboration is ready to do some serious dancefloor damage. Cani, from our beloved Zombies in Miami, and Young Drums, the Salamanca originated talented duo, gave birth to Haunted Strasse & Young Drums, and their debut release will be out on their label Haunted Space Records. A 4-track EP with the finest, powerful electro cuts and we couldn’t expect less from their creators. Both Cani and Young Drums are what we call hybrid; they combine different kinds of music, making themselves sound deep and dark but vibrating and bright at the same time.

Today we are excited to premiere the EP’s first smashing track, “Connection”. Making its entry with an industrial, strong beat, you sense early the tune’s dark electro-and electrifying- atmosphere, with arpeggiated synths playing a prominent role. Its harsh, EBM style sound gets softened by a gentler synth drifting melody, which as the end approaches enters the acid zone. The awkward echoed vocals match perfectly with the rest elements of this awesome, dynamic track. It’s gonna be every DJ’s peak-time choice. Listen to “Connection” and enjoy the ride!

Haunted Strasse & Young Drums debut EP “Connection” drops on July 3 via Haunted Space Records. Pre-order it here.

Dukes of Chutney: “Little War” (feat. Wovette) Video

Dukes of Chutney, the transcontinental trio of Dustin Lynn, John Paul Jones and Petra, return to Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space Records with their long-awaited debut album, entitled “Hazel”, set to drop in September. The 11-track album explores life’s wandering ways while widening its path. Recorded from remote yet commonly tranquil corners of the world over a six year span, “Hazel” is illustrated from a colorful palette of dub, folk, Balearic, and otherwise blissful sounds, somehow escaping categorization in its pursuit of uninhibited joy.

Our first taste from the record comes in the form of “Little War”, a finely crafted tune featuring Wovette on guitar and bass. On “Little War”, Dukes of Chutney concoct a dream beat about love for the sake of love. Even when love can lead to conflict when laid bare and vulnerable, “Little War” is redemptive as it is immersive in its call for care before conflict. The single arrives with a video by Dustin Lynn. Watch it above.

Dukes of Chutney’s “Hazel” will be available digitally and as a gatefold, double LP on September 4 via Beats In Space Records. Pre-order it here.

After dropping “Love Is All We Share” back in May, Melbourne’s Cut Copy have shared their superb new single “Cold Water”. Arriving alongside the track is the announcement of the four-piece’s sixth studio album “Freeze, Melt”, the follow-up to their incredible 2017 album “Haiku From Zero”, which will drop on August 21 via Cutters Records/The Orchard.

Speaking about “Cold Water”, frontman Dan Whitford says: “After extensive touring on our last album, ‘Cold Water’ was one of the first new songs to appear. I’d moved to Copenhagen and had been listening to a lot more ambient and instrumental electronic music and as a result ‘Cold Water’ felt quite different to songs we’d made in the past. It was less dance, but more atmospheric. Also the subject matter explores love in today’s context, where the climate and fate of the planet are becoming increasingly uncertain. Once we’d finished it, it felt like we’d placed a marker in the ground, guiding us in a new musical direction.”
