Check out the new video for Röyksopp and Robyn’s recent single “Do It Again”, taken from their collaborative mini-album of the same name. Directed by Danish filmmaker Martin De Thurah, this epic, black-and-white video was shot in Mexico. “I worked with the idea of ‘what is our heart’s desire?’ – and I realised that no one in the world truly gets to live out their passions. We are all under some construct, whether you’re an atheist living in Denmark or a gay person in Russia,” Thurah told Dazed.

The mini-album “Do It Again” is out now via Cherrytree/Interscope.

It’s been a long, long time coming, but finally JBAG, the London-based, French-Italian dance duo of Jerry Bouthier and Andrea Gorgerino, return to our speakers with a new single called “Through Blue”, after last year’s much-played “Mogadisco”.

For this new single, JBAG have teamed up with Tomek Szpaderski, lead singer of Polish electro-pop trio Kamp!, to deliver a perfectly crafted track just in time for your carefree summer rides. Fueled by slick grooves, gentle piano stabs and playful steel drums, “Through Blue” is such a great tune that certainly evokes a sense of bittersweet nostalgia. We’re pretty excited to bring you the first listen. You can get your fill of the six-plus-minute original version of “Through Blue” above.

The four-track “Through Blue” EP, which comes complete with fine remixes by Holmes Price, Jay Lamar & Jesse Oliver and Venice Beach, will arrive on July 21 via Jerry Bouthier’s own imprint Continental Records. You can pre-order your copy here. In related news, Jerry Bouthier’s new mix for his longtime label home Kitsuné will arrive in September. Also, keep your eyes peeled for Kamp!’s new EP “Baltimore”, due out soon via Cascine.

Canadian-born, Berlin-based electronic pop singer-songwriter Dan Bodan, who first wowed us with his excellent 2012 single “DP” b/w “Aaron” for DFA, is now set to release his debut LP, entitled “Soft”, for the label in October. And to whet our appetites in the meantime, Dan Bodan has shared the forthcoming record’s first single, the Great Skin-produced “Soft As Rain”, a song about “sex, cleansing, and finding new love.” With its lush synth tones and Bodan’s crooning vocals, “Soft As Rain” is a sleek slice of electro-pop for loose, romantic, wistful moments. It’s definitely worth checking out.

The Pool: “Jamaica Running (Poolside Edit)”

We just can’t get enough of LA’s Poolside “daytime disco” edits, specially made for their recent summer-soaked “Stir It Up” mixtape that has been on repeat on our car stereo for the last few weeks. Now, we’ve got our hands on this tropical, percussion-heavy rework of “The Pool’s “Jamaica Running”, which you can download for absolutely free below.

In Poolside’s own words: “The Pool was a unique entity in the early-to-mid ’80s out of Austin, Texas. The synthesizer project by drummer Patrick Keel released two albums and a series of EPs despite the gradual decline of the ‘synth-pop’ genre. “Jamaica Running” is the B-side to his “Dance It Down” single and the song appears to be a bit of an unusual track for The Pool, more laid back and groove focused than the rest of his work, which is more upbeat and energetic. With our edit we added a bunch of percussion and space echo dubs to give it a more tropical flair for our “Stir It Up” mixtape”.
