A track for Sunday.
Here’s “Return”, a perfect tune for your Sunday evening from rising Polish producer Mikolaj Gramowski, aka Klaves. Grab it for free below, and ride with us.
Bliss ’90s pop is back with Shura‘s debut solo offering Touch, a sparkling gem in today’s often beat-driven pop hysteria (no worries, we love that too of course) – with Shura, the beat is more of a gentle flow, a cloud that lifts you off and takes you on a trip (down memory lane). “All I wanna do is go home with you / but I know I’m out of my mind” she sings and you’ll want to grab her hand and have her take you home by the end of that line. I may have been listening to Pure Shores’ All Saints a bit too much these last few days, but there’s certainly a slight nod to the rhythm in Touch, right?
Gang Gang Dance: “House Jam” [Benoit & Sergio Edit]
La.Ga.Sta.’s “An Edit To Remember” series continues with yet another classy edit, this time from our favorite Benoit & Sergio, the DC/Berlin house duo of Benoit Simon and Benjamin Meyers. Take a ride with their superb, groove-filled rework of Gang Gang Dance’s “House Jam”. It’s yours for free.
On this Valentine’s Day, LA-based producer Felix Bloxsom, aka Plastic Plates, has something truly special to share with you, a brilliantly uplifting new track, called “Stay In Love”, featuring none other than Sam Sparro on vocals. What’s not to love? This is not the first time that the two have crossed paths. Back in 2012, Plastic Plates remixed Sam Sparro’s “Shades Of Grey”.

Let us introduce you to Hotlane, the Berlin-based electronic duo of Berlin DJ/producer Jack Tennis and Swedish model, DJ Agnes Lindström. The two met at Berlin’s famous Broken Heart Club parties a few years ago, and decided to start making music together just for fun. We’re so glad they did. Now, Hotlane bring some serious heat with their debut single “On My Own”, a beautiful slow jam that has a chilled-out vibe to it. You can now stream the radio version of “On My Own” above.
Hotlane’s “On My Own” is out now via Gomma Records. The release comes backed with two house reworks by DJ Steef and Ricardo Baez, and a club-ready remix by Jack Tennis himself. You can preview the whole thing here.

“De La Soul want you to have all of their music for free. The American hip-hop group are celebrating their 25th anniversary by making their “entire catalogue” available, at no cost, on their website.
Starting today at 11am EST and continuing for 25 hours, visitors to De La Soul’s official site will be able to legally download the group’s complete discography, according to Rolling Stone. “It’s about allowing our fans who have been looking and trying to get a hold of our music to have access to it,” Posdnuos explained. “This is our way of showing them how much we love them.”
Most of De La Soul’s seven studio albums are hard to find on digital platforms: as hip-hop pioneers, their early records are filled with samples, making them difficult to license. “We can’t even have our music on iTunes,” Posdnuos revealed. While the group’s labels are still trying to clear the material for future sale, “it’s been a trying journey”, he said. Bizarrely, a brief online free-for-all seems the best way to get their songs into some fans’ hands.”
