Download: Daniel Haaksman "Pobum Coco"

Label: Man

A rad little piece of cheeky fun from Man Recordings label boss Daniel Haaksman. Great electro drums and handclaps fuse together with a ridiculous Spanish guitar and some whistling. High-energy stuff from the original Gostoso EP that recently received superb remixes from Sharkslayer on the remix EP

Download: Chrissy Murderbot "Where's My Footworkin'? (TC remix)"

Label: Sleazetone

Chrissy Murderbot has been hot on our radar as of late and this dubbed-out remix of a Caspa remix from drum and bass producer TC (a.k.a. Tom Casswell) has got a little bump, grind, and then some.

Download: Pollyn "Gave It Up (Peter Visti remix)"

Label: Indie

A guru in in the Balearic Disco department, Denmark's Peter Visti gets his hands dirty with this single from the Pollyn tribe by sprucing it up with a fine mist of new wave veneer and pop sheen. Dark synth progressions and disco vibes clash with the neon pinks and blues and flashing lights from some seedy discotheque from the early '80s. If the Italians Do It Better banner ever have a sequel planned for the After Dark comp, this track would fit nicely between Glass Candy and Chromatics.

Download: Deep Rooted "Closer (prod. Exile)"

The self-proclaimed "feel good" hip-hop collective, San Diego's Deep Rooted, lives up to its personal mantra on the soulful "Closer." The bouncy jam, immaculately produced by L.A.'s beat veteran Exile, comes just in time to get the remainder of your summertime cookouts started with its warm church organ samples and crisp hand claps.

Download: Bernard Fevre (a.k.a. Black Devil Disco Club) "Mestophiles (XLR8R Exclusive)"

It may take a leap of faith on your part, but believe us when we say that this track, recorded as a precursor to Black Devil Disco Club, was made nearly 35 years ago by the band's main man, Bernard Fevre. An unreleased track from the upcoming Lo Recordings LP The Strange World of Bernard Fevre, "Mestophiles" is an almost-psychedelic trip into Fevre's young mind, guided by analog synths and plinks and plunks panned all over the place. An incredible rarity and a hot find for any disco and kosmische diggers looking to get beyond the usual suspects.

Download: Daniel Wang "Like Some Dream"

Label: Balihu

Before James Murphy "lost his edge" and The Rapture discovered the cowbell, NYC's Daniel Wang started the independent label Balihu to put out music that would end up shaping much of modern disco, house, and techno. Here, "Like Some Dream," the first track from forthcoming Balihu compilation that spans 15 years of releases, could've easily been written yesterday instead of 1993. The funky bassline, filtered synths, metallic percussion, and diva vocal loop sound even more classic for the song's history.
