CLASSIXX – TBA

Yes, all we want for New Year is Classixx’s long-awaited debut album. After the release of their debut hit single, ‘I’ll Get You’, in mid-2009 and their stunning 80-esque disco remixes for Phoenix, Holy Ghost!, Groove Armada, Mayer Hawthorne, Drop The Lime and Beni, amongst others, the Los Angeles-duo of Tyler Blake and Micheal David are preparing their first LP for release in early 2011. We bet that 2011 will be all about Classixx! Prepare yourselves.

AZARI & III – TBA

The future is now. We’ve said it all about the Toronto house outfit Azari & III. Nothing can stop them. After releasing the synth ‘n’ vocals anthems ‘Hungry (For Your Love)’, ‘Reckless (With Your Love)’ and their latest EP’s ‘Indigo’ and ‘Into The Night’, Azari & III are now ready to drop their debut album for Tiga’s Turbo Recordings in early 2011. Yes, we are hungry for more!

DISCODEINE – ‘DISCODEINE’

We are big fans of Discodeine, the French duo of Pilooski and Pentile, and it shows. Their 2010 singles ‘Singular’ with Matias Aguayo on vocals and the amazing ‘Synchronize’ that even got Jarvis Cocker in synch with them have got us in the disco-mood for more. Can’t wait for their self-titled debut on February 25th, 2011 via Dirty/Pschent.

SIRIUSMO – “MOSAIK”

There’s no doubt that Siriusmo, aka Moritz Friedrich, is one of the hottest producers right now. His ‘Mosaik’ of sounds left us staring at the wall for days. And yes, his debut album will finally be released as a 17-track cd and an 18-track 2xLP on February 25 via Monkeytown. Siriusmo’s album pre-single, ‘Feromonikon/Signal’ is coming out on January 14th. You can preview all tracks here and make yourselves a part of Siriusmo’s ‘Mosaik’!

JAMES BLAKE – “JAMES BLAKE”

It’s true that the 21-year-old rising UK singer/songwriter James Blake is literally everywhere with his self-titled debut album, which has already leaked. However, it still is one of the most anticipated debut albums of 2011. It is set for release on February 7th on his own Atlas Records. The tracks were composed while Blake was at Goldsmiths University and we can’t wait to fill them up!

THE AIKIU – TBA

Some things simply blend in perfectly together, like The Aikiu’s voice, performance and style. The Aikiu’s debut single, ‘Just Can’t Sleep’, one of our favourite of 2010, it was only the beginning. Now the French singer Alex Aikiu is ready to release his second catchy pop single, ‘The Red Kiss’, (already The Magician delivered a great remix) in January. His debut album is due out early 2011. Bring it on before we lose our sleep…

NICOLAS JAAR – ‘SPACE IS ONLY NOISE’

In our space we most certainly like his noise because the 20-year-old New Yorker producer Nicolas Jaar makes us wonder about things, such as “How can you talk about a landscape without showing the sky and the earth?”. His long-awaited first album, ‘Space Is Only Noise’, is coming out on February 14th via Circus Company and from what we read it “features the same romantic panache that has characterized much of Jaar’s music to date, with off-kilter, melancholy grooves and lyrics delivered in French”.

KORALLREVEN – TBA

In 2010, Sweden’s duo Korallreven , made up of Marcus Joons and Daniel Tjäder of The Radio Dept. released two blissful singles, ‘The Truest Faith’ and ‘Honey Mine’, featuring Victoria Bergsman on vocals. It was enough to makes us anticipate for their debut album, which is expected to be released in Spring 2011. Let it flow…

BENI – TBA

Following on his previous singles ‘My Love Sees You’ and ‘Maximus’ on Kitsuné, Beni has recently signed with Modular Recordings for his soon-to-be-released debut album. His LP was written and recorded in various studios, bedrooms, airports, hotels, flights, trains from New York to Hiroshima and back. Sounds very lagasta to us! Keep your eyes peeled for the first single from Beni’s debut album, ‘It’s A Bubble’, which comes with The Magician’s stellar remix!

‘PENGUIN PRISON – TBA’

The wait is almost over. Newly signed to Wall Of Sound, Chris Glover, aka Penguin Prison, is gearing up to the release of his debut album early in 2011. We have already hopped on his golden train on a crazy ride hoping to be “multi-millionaire”-s. Yes, you got it right, this is his next single, out in early 2011. Excellent way to start the year…

CLOCK OPERA – TBA

London-based four piece Clock Opera are currently putting the finishing touches on their debut album, which at long last will be released in early 2011. After listening to their brilliant remixes and singles we certainly believe that 2011 will be all around the clock.
