London’s Factory Floor, now officially a duo consisting of Nik Void and Gabriel Gurnsey, return to DFA with their second album “25 25”, which follows their hugely acclaimed 2013 self-titled debut. With their music stripped to a mesmerising dance of percussion, fragmented voice and melody, the new eight-track record captures the next vital stage in the evolution of one of the UK’s most restless and exploratory groups. Today, Factory Floor have shared the album’s lead single “Dial Me In”, which you can stream above.

Speaking of “Dial Me In”, Void says: “Being openly progressive has always been the Factory Floor way, be it via improvisational live shows, early Blast First releases, DFA reworks, or open studio collaborations and residencies. ‘Dial Me In’ was the first track Gabe and I wrote together for this record. At this time we were both exploring new set ups – some unfamiliar gear like modular systems, as well as various machines combined with regular old stuff like my Roland sampler, live drums and effected live vocals.”

The album “25 25” will arrive on August 19th via DFA. Pre-order it here.

And he’s back. Two years after the release of his excellent debut LP, 2013’s “Years Not Living”, Greek singer/producer Panagiotis Melidis, aka Larry Gus, returns to DFA with his second full-length album “I Need New Eyes”, set to arrive on October 2. The new eight-track record is said to employ “clearer songwriting structures”, and its title is based on a supposed quote by Proust, “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

Today, we’re treated to a stream of the album’s first single “NP-Complete”. Clocking in at nearly seven minutes, the track finds Larry Gus doing what he does best: delivering a groove-filled tune laced with slow-burning, psychedelic textures, bright melodies, falsetto vocals, and infectious layers of percussion. Blast it above.

Larry Gus’ new album “I Need New Eyes” will drop on October 2 on DFA. Pre-order it here.

Ready for some hot sauce? Londoner Marcus Marr has returned with a great new “Brown Sauce” b/w “Peacemakers” 12”, which marks his first record on DFA since his killer tune “The Music”, one of our favorite dance tracks of 2012. The record’s a-side cut “Brown Sauce” sees the adventurous producer, DJ, songwriter and instrumentalist delivering a surefire dancefloor filler with some serious dark vibes. On the flip-side there’s “Peacemakers”, an incredibly groovy, funky jam full of Fender Jazz bass guitar licks.

“Depending on the vibe of the night, if you come and see me DJ it’s likely you’re going to hear some futuristic music, as well as some disco, house and so on. I want people to be warned about that so I made “Brown Sauce”. I’ve been playing it all over the place for a good while now and it never lets me down,” he says. Give both tracks a few spins, and keep en eye out for Marcus Marr’s debut album, which is expected to see a release later this year via DFA.

The “Brown Sauce” b/w “Peacemakers” single is out now on DFA. Buy it here.
