Hackman has been blowing up the spot for a minute now with a melodic take on UK Bass that utilizes, above all else, beautiful sampling. The R&B chopped vocal is very nearly a trope at this point, but this guy always seems to engrain the vocals a little deeper, giving them some serious emotional resonance. I’ve loved literally everything I’ve heard from Hackman, but “Forgotten Notes” is absolutely my most played, and that’s happened in a matter of days. It’s slower than his usual, but just as deliberate and affecting. Plus, acoustic guitars in a bass track. Can’t believe this one is free.


Hackman – “Forgotten Notes”

Ready to go hard? Flosstradamus & DJ Sliink both make what is, essentially, hip-hop pushed so far towards the dance floor it becomes something new entirely. When they collaborate, that description holds up. “Test Me” is off of the upcoming Nomads EP, and it is a banger of the highest proportions.

US garage and house legend Todd “The God” Edwards (pictured) has blessed us with a crisp and funky remix of Little Boots most recent single, and it’s a poptastically fun, jumpy little number. The 80’s diva vocals are left intact, while jerky drums and a funky bassline complete this top drawer remix, which will be released with the single on June 6th.

You should know by now that we love British singer Py, and her excellent debut mixtape Tripping On Wisdom has been on repeat since it dropped. Up and coming US producer Madeaux has remixed the George FitzGerald produced “Lungs,” adding in some beautiful piano work, and jazzy percussion, with the result being the perfect accompaniment to a sunset lit seaside scene. Catch those late afternoon/early evening vies below.

UK duo Disclosure have been¬†absolutely¬†killing it recently, collaborating with some fantastic female UK vocalists on summer anthem “Boiling” and their silky smooth remix of Jessie ware’s “110%”, and their new one, featuring Ria Ritchie is another banger. Garage inflected beats are joined by elastic bass for a straight up BBQ banger.

Seven minutes is an awful long time to dance to a song, and to be honest this is more of a feet-up chiller of a track than anything else. This miniature symphony requires a fair amount of variety for its impact, and we are given brief flashes of chopped-up bursts of brass, cut up vocals, and all manner of jerky drums and screwed up synths – however even with all these elements “Pascal’s Chorus” retains a smoothness that marks out all of Fantastic Mr Fox’s output.

You may have heard that last month, disco legend Donna Summer passed away. As a tribute, Boys Noize let loose an edit of her he released back in 2006 for free. Classy guy, great song. RIP Donna.

If thumping house electro-house is what you need to get you’re night started, we’ve got your back with “Contra”. Some big-room keys take this track to the next level, and you can grab a free download below.

Disco time! This is so, so old, but I missed it when it dropped (sorry people, especially if you’ve had the track lyke 4eva). Normally I would just leave any older tracks off the posts, but I know how much you lemmings like Childish Gambino. Here, have it:

More disco. I wish you could see the smile on my face right now. Aeroplane broke up, but The Magician is doing pretty well for himself on the solo tip. Here, he takes on RAC’s gorgeous “Hollywood” and gives it a little extra something to give it a new lease on life and reason to get played out all over again.
