Boston duo Maka + Durkin channel global dance vibes on their effervescent new Fool’s Gold release Waterproof, blending afrobeats and dancehall rhythms, classic house and R&B, and future-minded beats from their hometown and beyond. But Waterproof’s personal touches take those international musical vibes to a deeper level. From bilingual single “Malie,” sung in English and Maka’s native Tongan (“Malie is a Tongan word that means well done. It’s most often used to appreciate when people are dancing well, or after someone sings a song and does a good job”) to perseverance anthem “Tropical Rain” featuring Ghostdad, Waterproof adds a welcome dose of island magic and IRL emotions to Maka + Durkin’s hybrid electronic sound. Get into it!

Maka & Durkin return to Fool’s Gold with bilingual single “Malie,” sung in English and Maka’s native Tongan (“Malie is a Tongan word that means well done.

Acid house basslines, twisted dancehall vox, and vintage techno stabs smash together for a high-energy digital dancefloor heater. Reeeeeewind!

Kittens is one of LA’s iconic DJs, pushing party sounds forward as a mainstay at the livest club nights and festivals, all the while fostering an inclusive creative community via workshops and personal activism. Now, she levels up as a producer and artist with her debut solo release, Zanan & On. The title track boasts Kittens’ heavy duty percussion and an equally powerful message: “’Zanan’ means woman in Farsi and was also the name of the only womens’ magazine in Iran, which the government sadly shut down. So Zanan & On to me is kind of like a more inclusive version of ‘The Future Is Female,’ meant to empower women and other people who feel they don’t belong.” Meanwhile, flipside banger “To Light” features rising NY star Flipp Dinero and Kollision of ATL’s Quality Control over an energetic, hybrid beat with claws to spare. Turn it up!
