Duck Sauce hangs out during HARD Summer 2013 day 1 at LA State Historic Park in Los Angeles, CA.

Each Friday the CODE crew comes to you with their favorite dance tracks of the week.

Duck Sauce: “Party In Me” [Fool’s Gold]

North America’s bawdiest DJ supergroup spins a classic disco mirrorball with some funk edge on this track sans irony into a contagiously hypnotic chorus. 

Bishop Nehru: “You Stressin’”

As a slice of rap, Bishop isn’t setting the world on fire this time, but as a preview of what Disclosure might do as producers on an upcoming project with Q-Tip, this is worth multiple listens.

Tensnake featuring Niles Rodgers & Fiora: “Love Sublime” (Duke Dumont remix) [Astralwerks]

The Duke flips the switch on the ‘Snake as he takes away some of the original’s sublimity and replaces it with a surprisingly haunting rub, held together by tight piano and vocal loops.

CliffLight: “Do What You Want To Me”

Electro/synth is the style du jour for alt-pop acts, but CliffLight has an edge on the others with a remix-ready melody and the distinctive voice of frontman Cliff, that recalls Billy Bragg and that shouting above the music you do in a loud club.

Tycho: “Montana” [Ghostly]

As a harbinger of what’s to come on his upcoming sophomore album, “Montana” leads the artists to a driving and sunnier clime than his previous releases without losing any of the emotional palpability.
