This one has been on repeat on our car stereo for the past few months. Cologne’s electronic duo COMA, aka Marius Bubat and Georg Conrad, “Les Dilettantes”, taken from their superb debut LP “In Technicolor” on Kompakt, gets a disco-infused rework by fellow German producer/singer and album collaborator Marius Lauber, aka Roosevelt. Once again, Roosevelt works his magic on “Les Dilettantes”, stretching it out into a gorgeous nearly-eight-minute dancefloor heater. Loved up!

15. Miami Horror – Wild Motion (Pete Herbert Remix)

We couldn’t think of a better way to close our new “Late Summer” compilation Vol 4 than with this classy remix of “Wild Motion”, the recent single from Melbourne-via-LA electro-pop four-piece Miami Horror, by the mighty London-based Pete Herbert. What’s not to love?

Melbourne-based duo Indian Summer, one of the most exciting duo’s to come out of Australia, return to Sweat It Out with another strong effort, the two-track EP “Aged Care”. With this release, the electronic duo of Gabe Gleeson and Chevy Long seems to have no trouble keeping their momentum up after the great tunes “No Use” and “Foreign Formula” from last year.

Today, we’re excited to premiere the single’s b-side cut, “Pin Tweaks”, a heavy-hitting slice of electro-house with dark, intense beats. While the a-side “Aged Care” is more soulful, house-oriented affair with the help of SAFIA’s Benjamin Joseph on vocals, “Pin Tweaks” has a very different vibe. It’s a banger right from the start, enough to rattle the windows of your neighbour’s house. Give a spin above, exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.

Indian Summer’s “Aged Care”/”Pin Tweaks” is out now via Sweat It Out Music! Get it here.
