Groove Armada & Brodanse featuring Cari Golden: “Sweat” [Armada Music]
Even run through several distortion effects, Golden’s voice is a power tool on this slice of house revivalism, implicitly commanding an outing on the dancefloor. Not to mention, the return of Groove Armada is always welcome.
Borgore & Victor Niglio: “Booty Monsta” [Dim Mak]
As catchy as it is tasteless, “Booty Monsta” is the reason why we dismiss Borgore at our peril. The brightness Niglio adds in the collab makes this a potential monsta unto itself.
Tom Demac & Will Samson: “Chasing Shadows” (Formula Version) [Aus Music]
An unlikely union of space-bass producer (Demac), soulful vocalist (Samson) and venerable UK label makes for an achingly lovely EP, which is at its most danceable with this remix.
Audion: “Motormouth” [Ghostly]
Matthew Dear’s hard techno alias gets a decade-spanning career retrospective next month, buoyed in part by this new chatterbox of a track.
AC Slater: “So Sweet” featuring Megan Thomas [Party Like Us]
The Trouble & Bass’r commits to his new musical leanings, rubbing this melodic bass house jam with lots of delightfully dirty dissonance.
