We’ve already heard and saw the video of Cut Copy’s bassist Ben Browning newest single “Friends Of Mine”, a disco-infused synth pop tune taken from his superb debut solo album “Turns”. Now, we’ve got our hands on a new version of the track from Los Angeles-based duo Wild & Free, who spins the tune into much blissed-out territory with an array of synth melodies and laid-back, sunny grooves. It’s a well-suited remix for a summer drive down the Pacific Coast Highway. Give it a spin above, and ride with us.

The last time we heard from Melbourne-based producer/DJ Mike Gamwell, aka Knightlife, was late last year, when he contributed the track “Don’t Stop” to Cut Copy’s excellent “Oceans Apart” compilation. Now, he’s back with a brand-new track called “Heavy Down”, the first taste from his upcoming four-track “VII” EP, set to arrive in August on on Cutters Records. Somewhat minimal and more stripped back than Knightlife’s previous releases, “Heavy Down” finds him still operating in top form. Blast it above.

Knightlife is also touring with Cut Copy’s Dan Whitford & Tim Hoey through July in the US.

Melbourne-based producer/DJ Mike Gamwell, better known as Knightlife, recently dropped a great tune called “Don’t Stop”, which you may already be familiar with it if you heard Cut Copy’s excellent “Oceans Apart” compilation, showcasing a “glimpse of dance culture” in their home city of Melbourne. True to his usual eclectic style, “Don’t Stop” finally sees a single release on Cut Copy’s own Cutters Records imprint. The single comes complete with a new acid-tinged techno jam “Interstate 08″ and a remix of “Don’t Stop” from Los Angeles producer/DJ Diego Herrera, aka Suzanne Kraft, who recently wowed us with his killer tune “Renee Running” under his new alias Dude Energy.

Today, we’re psyched to share with you an exclusive stream of Suzanne Kraft’s sublime remix of Knightlife’s “Don’t Stop”, who turns the tune into a cosmic disco ride, replete with lush synths, bright melodies and tropical-inflected percussions. And yes, it doesn’t get any better than this. Give this remix a spin or two above, and ride with us.

Having previously operated under the moniker Das Moth, the now Germany-based Australian producer/DJ Tim Sullivan returns as This Soft Machine, a “band at heart”, as he says. Next month, This Soft Machine will finally drop his superb debut EP, consisting of two tracks, “On & On” and “This Place Was Meant For Me”, which marks his first release on Eskimo Recordings. Our first taste of that forthcoming EP comes in the form of “On & On”, a perfectly crafted disco-infused tune that showcases his elegant style. On this track, Dan Whitford (of Cut Copy fame) helped with recording the synthesizers, Dave Harrington, one half of Darkside, played the electric guitar, while Lorraine Nicholson contributed vocals. It’s definitely worth a few spins. Blast it above.

This Soft Machine’s “On & On”/”This Place Was Meant For Me” EP will drop on coloured 7″ vinyl and digitally on April 13th via Eskimo Recordings. The track “On & On” will also appear on “The Orange Collection”, the fourth installment of the label’s ongoing compilation series based around colours.
