The next release on Lobster Theremin’s Distant Hawaii offshoot comes from French producer/DJ Sweely with a humungous, stomping, NY-Jersey inspired EP called “All The Reasons”. The well-crafted four-tracker combines war drum level percussion with soulfully flowing vocals and lush pads galore. Our favorite cut is the title track, a silky house groover. This one has been floating around the web for a while now, and it’s absolutely sublime.

Accoding to the label, the 10-track LP bridges the gaps between cavernous techno, spectral pop, and Krautrock’s mechanical pulse.

Montreal producer Jacques Greene is getting ready to drop his highly anticipated debut album “Feel Infinite” in March on LuckyMe. Written over the course of two years, the 11-track album is “a record both about the club and for the club: a shimmering album that straddles modern and analogue house, techno and garage to pull out some of the pathos of modern youth.” In his own words: “The essence of the record is to draw emotions and moments that above all, feel human within the context of dance music. I want it to be celebratory of all that we feel and do and experience – the beautiful, the good, and the bad.” Today, we’re treated to the record’s first single “Real Time”, a finely crafted tune with driving bass and almost French Touch-inspired sequenced samples. Blast it above.

Jacques Greene’s debut LP “Feel Infinite” arrives on March 10th on LuckyMe. It also features a collaboration with How To Dress Well on vocals. Pre-order it here.

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Wolfram, formerly known as marfloW and Diskokaine, who has put his own stamp on sounds ranging from Italo disco to Chicago house. The mighty Viennese producer and musician has remixed Moby, produced Sally Shapiro’s acclaimed debut LP “Disco Romance” (2006) and has worked with iconic labels Mute and DFA. Since his debut album “Wolfram”, released back in 2011 on Permanent Vacation, he has collaborated with Haddaway, Hercules & Love Affair, Legowelt, and Holy Ghost!

To set the right mood, Wolfram has put together an exclusive mixtape ahead of his DJ set. As he says: “It’s a weird mix. I didn’t wanna do a normal Italo one, so its more like 40-minutes of selecting whatever”. Blast it above, and join us at at Uberdooze tonight!

Today, Joakim has shared a video for the record’s first single “Numb”, which is a parody of the YouTube phenomenon of make-up tutorials.

After dropping the Emotions-sampling house tune “Lose Your Love” last month, Hot Chip member and Greco-Roman co-founder Joe Goddard is back with his new single “Music Is The Answer”, the second track from his upcoming solo album “Electric Lines”. You can watch the video for the infectious track, which features vocals from London-based singer-songwriter Jess Mills, also known as Slo. The video was directed by Shynola.

Set to drop on April 12 on Greco-Roman/Domino, the ten-track “Electric Lines” LP also features Hot Chip bandmate Alexis Taylor on the title track, while Michigan-based singer Daniel Wilson makes an appearance on disco-sampling deep house tune “Home”. The title refers to the colourful cables that link the modules in his Eurorack synthesizer and to the invisible wires that run between all the different kinds of electronic music that he loves.
