Röyksopp - Something In My Heart (feat. Jamie Irrepressible)

Röyksopp's "Running To The Sea" with Susanne Sundfør has been a favourite since I first heard it on Norwegian television. Tomorrow Röyksopp will release it along with a new fave as the B-side. This new gem features singer Jamie McDermott from the ten-man-band The Irrepressibles. His voice has always been a beauty and now it marries together with the sweet sounds of Röyksopp. Buy your copy with these two stunning tunes November 25 over at iTunes.

Perseus - Shadow of the Beast

Perseus is finally back after a too long an absence with yet another soulful slowdance deephouse gem, including the patented hydraulic snare. Need we say more? No, we don't.

Justin Faust - Disco Cuts EP

Our favourite German (or at least one of them - we have a few) Justin Faust is in great form. His three-track EP Disco Cuts is out now on legendary New York label Nurvous. The title is a good table of contents since the tracks are top quality filtered disco house with added disco. Deeper than French touch disco house but more disco than deep house. Sort of like Mylo meeting Tiger & Woods. Awesome stuff Timm!

Bicep - Satisfy

These are exciting times since everyone's favourites Bicep are rolling out their full Soundcloud previews of their upcoming Satisfy EP on their own Feel My Bicep label. This is only their second release on FMB, but since the first one was "Vision of Love", which was one of last years best tracks, they clearly go for quality over quantity.

We have already been giggling at the "Satisfy" part of the promo video which consists of clips from the classic Swedish 80's movie "Stockholmsnatt" (Stockholm night) featuring young, fair-haired martial arts aficionado/street punk Paolo Roberto effectively playing himself. Somewhat of a renaissance man, he went on to become a TV personality, Italian food importer and even politician at one point.

Maybe more interesting than the exploits of Roberto are the snippets of the actual tracks. Bicep continues with the 90's revival, but now from more of a UK perspective than the Chicago or New York-oozing garage from "Vision of Love". The title track have the sort of breakbeats from the early 90's British rave music that eventually lead to jungle and drum'n'bass. "The Final Trip" sounds a lot like Kevin 'Reese' Saunderson who, although being one of the three grandfathers of Detroit techno was the one with the deepest links to the UK rave scene, with his moniker Tronikhouse in 1991 and 1992 for example. However, the track I instinctively like the best is "Snackbar", which happens to be the most classic American garage track of the three. It's just too damn funky!

Pick up Satisfy EP on a round plate of black plastic on Juno on November 25. Follow Bicep on Facebook.

Monitor 66 celebrates 10.000 followers on SoundCloud

This celebration from the cool kids of Monitor 66 ends up with a new free tune named "Kordial". A deep and a bit dark tune to (de)-celebrate the Swedish autumn, that's both kind of depressing sometimes but also filled with great beautifulness. Celebrate with Monitor 66!

Missing Dude Skywalker?

We have! But now the Miami duo Dude Skywalker are back with this new freebie remix of the wonderful classic "Missing" by Everything But The Girl. A sweet take of this classic where they have kept the soul of the song but added that extra Skywalker flavour.

New Pyramid remix of Thomas Azier

Our French friend Pyramid is out with a new remix of Thomas Azier's "Ghostcity". I'd love the sound that Pyramid has given this already danceable track. In other words, the original is a great tune and Pyramid's remix is another great tune in a darker way. Also great is that it comes as a free download.

Check out the original along with the official video:

NVOY - Is It Good

Got an email from this wonderful duo NVOY from Oxford. Their latest tune "Is It Good" hit me right away.

NVOY make music influenced by the earlier house music from Detroit, Chicago and of course the UK. We are in love with this kind of music and in NVOY we've found us some new and fresh tunes thanks to them. We can only say, keep it up, we're now following your every step.
