It’s time for “Rerotica”. What our Friday nights would be like without some darkly sensual, slow-burning disco grooves and familiar lyrics that bring back so many good memories. Rising Israeli producer Moscoman, who is currently based in Berlin, surely knows the deal. He rides a “Dark Horse” and shows us how he does it right with “Rerotica”, a late-night dancefloor heater featuring vocals from the man himself. The track appears on his new “Dark Horse” EP of four quality tunes on Cosmo Vitelli’s label Cliché, which follows his self-titled debut EP, released last year on the same label. Give “Rerotica” a few spins above, and preview the whole thing here.

The “Dark Horse” EP is out now on vinyl via I’m a Cliché, while the digital version will come out on October 27th. Pick up your 12” here. As a bonus, you can grab a free download of Moscoman’s unreleased edit, his contribution to the label’s excellent “Edit Service” series.

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”.
