It’s been a long, long time coming, but finally JBAG, the London-based, French-Italian dance duo of Jerry Bouthier and Andrea Gorgerino, return to our speakers with a new single called “Through Blue”, after last year’s much-played “Mogadisco”.
For this new single, JBAG have teamed up with Tomek Szpaderski, lead singer of Polish electro-pop trio Kamp!, to deliver a perfectly crafted track just in time for your carefree summer rides. Fueled by slick grooves, gentle piano stabs and playful steel drums, “Through Blue” is such a great tune that certainly evokes a sense of bittersweet nostalgia. We’re pretty excited to bring you the first listen. You can get your fill of the six-plus-minute original version of “Through Blue” above.
The four-track “Through Blue” EP, which comes complete with fine remixes by Holmes Price, Jay Lamar & Jesse Oliver and Venice Beach, will arrive on July 21 via Jerry Bouthier’s own imprint Continental Records. You can pre-order your copy here. In related news, Jerry Bouthier’s new mix for his longtime label home Kitsuné will arrive in September. Also, keep your eyes peeled for Kamp!’s new EP “Baltimore”, due out soon via Cascine.

Say hello to Prince of Livia, the new solo project of Tomek Szpaderski, lead singer of Polish electro-pop trio Kamp!. This week saw the release of Prince of Livia’s debut EP titled “Perkal”, which was recorded during Tomek’s vacation time, somewhere between the shows and studio gatherings of his band. It’s a well-crafted collection of four deeply emotional and hazy, atmospheric pop tracks, paired with lush melodies and subtle layers of synth pads. “These songs were written in my favourite places, full of carefree summer memories and vast emotions,” he says.
Our favorite track from the EP is “Perkal Pt. 1″, an airy, midtempo affair for your evening rides this summer. It also serves as the perfect introduction to Prince of Livia’s sound. The “Perkal” EP is out now via Brennnessel Records. Stream the whole thing here, and get your copy here.
