After dropping the single “Where Does This Disco?” just a few weeks ago, Los Angeles-based synth-dance duo YACHT are already back with “Works Like Magic”, another new track from their forthcoming EP on their brand-new label Downtown Records. “Works Like Magic”, the first song they’ve written with the band’s live members Jeffrey Brodsky and Rob “Bobby Birdman” Kieswetter, is an infectious funky tune that stays true to its name. It also featured in a Google Chromecast ad.

In YACHT’s own words: “The science fiction writer J.G. Ballard once said that “sex times technology equals the future.” We argue that sex and technology coexist in our present: we touch, we push buttons, we seek intimacy in screens. When we connect, it works like magic.” The “Where Does This Disco?” EP will arrive on November 11th via Downtown Records. Buy a copy of “Works Like Magic” here.

It’s certainly been quite some time since we last heard from Los Angeles-based synth-dance duo YACHT, comprised of Jona Bechtolt & Claire L. Evans, but now they’re back in action with their delicious new single “Where Does This Disco?”, the first taste from their forthcoming EP of the same name, which marks the pair’s first release on their brand-new label, Downtown Records. According to YACHT: “Where Does This Disco? is about love and compact discs. They’re both on the edge of becoming obsolete, and they both get scratched if you play them too hard. They’re both mirrors, but one is still the best medium we have for connecting with each other.”

The “Where Does This Disco?” single, which comes backed with a remix by Jerome LOL, who also operates as one half of DJ Dodger Stadium, is out now digitally via Downtown Records. Get it here.

To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Portland’s YACHT dropped today a new single, “Second Summer”, on DFA Records and it’s so damn catchy. In their own words: “‘Second Summer’ is a state of mind: overcoming obstacles in order to be close to what you love, a temporal place where sun never goes out no matter what season it is in your hemisphere. Like the original Summer of Love and its acid house revival, the Second Summer of Love, our aim is true: to create environments of total freedom.” Download “Second Summer” for free below, and watch the cool animated video, directed by ADHD. It’s all about fun.
