The album’s first single “Mom And Dad” finds Xinobi delivering a guitar-driven, disco-flavored pop track with smooth grooves and sultry vocals from Margarida Encarnação. One word: Perfect! Can’t wait to hear more. Give “Mom And Dad” a spin or two above, and check out the video, directed by Lydie Bárbara, below.

Jack J: “Looking Forward To You”

Here we go. If there was an EP that we’ve been playing on repeat mode for a couple of weeks now, it would definitely be the latest solo release from Vancouver-based producer Jack Jutson, one half of Pender Street Steppers alongside Liam Butler. With his third solo offering, the “Looking Forward To You” 12”, for Vancouver’s collective Mood Hut, Jack Jutson strikes gold, delivering three absolutely killer tracks of silky-smooth house goodness.

The “Looking Forward To You” 12”, one of the best EPs we’ve heard this summer, is out now via Mood Hut. Pick up your copy here.
