Juan MacLean has a few weeks to go until the release of his latest album, The Future Will Come, but in the meantime, he's prepped a remix EP available digitally this week. Mark Romboy, The Emperor Machine, and Surkin contributed tracks to the EP, along with James Curd, who turned the track "One Day" into an upbeat house number. The Future Will Come is out April 14 via DFA.

Jesse Rose teamed up with Brazilian funk artist Deize Tigrona for this track, a slinky, sultry favela number rooted in a house beat and heavy on the percussion. Here's the radio edit of the track. The track is taken from Man Recordings' Daniel Haaksman Presents Funk Mundial, release, the first-ever compilation to pair baile funk MCs from Rio De Janeiro with producers from the Northern hemisphere.
"Pool Party" marks the debut release for youngster upstart Shazam and pays homage to the Perth, Australia-based producer's days spent by his parents' swimming pool. The single comes packaged with a few remixes, including this handclap-heavy club number from Switzerland-based producer Headman.
What better way to celebrate eight years' worth of remixes than by unleashing brand new material to the masses? Stefan Kozalla (a.k.a. DJ Koze) has done just that, furnishing us with this funky, laidback dance tune to start the week off.
Loer Velocity’s Uninfatuated EP, which is free to download here, tracks the rise and fall of the New York-based emcee’s relationship with a special someone over the course of one year. Set to sexy, soulful background music, LV’s lyrics trip and glide alternately through the seasons in “Seasonal.”
Experimental, experimental, experimental. That more or less sums up the music Merrill Garbus creates under the name tUnE-yArDs, a moniker she adopted, capital letters and all, in 2007. "Sunlight," off Garbus' recently released album BiRd-BrAINs, was made using just a hand-held voice recorder, ukulele, and some noisy, off-balance drums.
In the hands of producer, DJ, and megamixer Shir Khan, this track—made by Berlin-based new-wave band Kissogram—becomes an old-school-style disco cut in which Cock Rock Disco's Otto Von Shirach lends his own vocal hook to the mix. Suffice to say that, thanks to those vocals, the storyline of the track, about a solider breaking away from the army, becomes slightly skewed.
