From the opening piano notes, it’s clear that “2 B Free”is a soul purifying disco jam that would have felt right at home on Larry Levan’s turntables 40 years ago. It feels familiar, but is still strikingly fresh. Saturday Love is a new project uniting the Boston veteran DJ and producer Kon (behind The Vision’s instant classic “Heaven”) with rising NYC vocalist Fiorious (“I’m Not Defeated” / “Music Saved My Life”), whose soaring falsetto carries this song to new heights. The hair on your back will reach those same heights too, so keep hands firmly on your hips and let the percussion guide you to freedom. Listen now!

Legendary Chicago producer Terry Hunter remixes Soul Clap’s “Back 2 Love,” transforming the song into a classic house tune complete with mesmerizing organs and beautiful piano.

At the height of the Covid-19 lockdown, A-Trak had a musical epiphany. Stuck at home experimenting, he remembered he had a broken E-Mu SP1200 in storage that he’d been meaning to fix for over 10 years. The mythical drum machine with a gritty 12-bit sound was the weapon of choice for so many of the producers who shaped A-Trak’s ear: from Pete Rock to Madlib, from DJ Muggs to Kenny Dope, from Todd Terry to Alan Braxe and DJ Falcon. After a chance repair job, Trizzy taught himself how to use the rare SP, chopped up everything in sight and quickly churned out the rawest house beats he’s ever made. The result is a two-part EP of uptempo head-nodders, stripped down and named after the notoriously short sample time of his new toy. Best served dirty and loud. Listen now!

Karma Kid and Luke Fono have been pushing UK dance sounds forward for a decade, with anthemic cuts like Fono’s “Real Joy” (championed by Annie Mac, The Magician and Calvin Harris) and KK’s in-demand remixes (spanning hitmakers from Dua Lipa to Duke Dumont) never leaving the USBs of your favorite DJs. On their debut Fool’s Gold EP BOSSA, the duo combine forces to go even harder, deeper and weirder: “Life Of The Party” enlists NYC icon Cakes da Killa for a crazy catwalk stomper, “Soul Seeker” brings ecstatic afterparty vibes, and the insanely energetic title track stretches tribal house sounds into unclassifiable new forms.
