Why do we like this?

London-based Barry Can’t Swim is releasing a well-timed EP next month. On July 7th, to be precise. Mark it on your calendar because it seems like it will be a good one for the summer. It’ll be called Amor Fati and it has two singles out,”Lone Raver,” which is a delicious house track, and this incredible ode to disco and summer vibes. It bears the awesome name of “Jazz Club After Hours.”

It begins with a mood setting sax, keys and snare, some chatter in the background that give it some texture and it transports you to another place, another decade, you can feel the heat of the room, smell the cigarette smoke in the air, taste the cool drink that isn’t really in your hand.

The strings take a lead on this song and accompany you, at the center of it for the most part, fading to the back to allow for other instruments to play too, like the wind like instrument that dances for a couple of seconds at the first minute mark, or the joyful organ that grooves for a while right after that.

This is a tune that projects a movie in your head, and makes you move. That’s pretty cool.

Have fun and take care!

It’s pretty rare for a track to get you on your feet and grooving your butt off a mere 30 seconds in, but that’s Flight Facilities for you. With the addition of Compton rapper Channel Tres, this hip-hop-inspired deep house track knows no bounds and completely knocked me off my feet from the get-go. ‘Absolute banger’ does not even begin to cover the brilliance that “Lights Up” oozes.

The 90’s Detroit house and West-Coast hip hop influences are obvious and intricately intermingle in a way that is equal parts nostalgic and new-school. Flight Facilities echo this sentiment in a statement explaining:

“We felt it was important to keep enough of our sound and influence in the track, to avoid it sounding too derivative, so we wanted to include some 90’s and 00’s elements to give the song its own character.”

And they absolutely freaking nailed it.

In that same statement, the duo says about Tres:

“His voice has a magical ability to make songs that are made for strutting.”

They’re damn right, too. This track is dripping with swag. Have a listen, and get strutting.

Joyous Journey Spaceman

With the crazy news of synth-wave and electronica duo, Daft Punk, having blown out the torch, I wasn’t expecting anything to fill my synth-wave needs anytime soon. Especially not within the context of the pop sounds I was so used to from Daft Punk. That was until this little fluctuating gem of a song came my way.

This flagship single from Roosevelt’s latest album, Polydans, pays homage to the romantic sounds of pop electronica — light cotton candy beats mixed into a galactic soundscape of a festival in space. “Lovers” made me feel like an astronaut with a streaming service straight to an electronica festival.

I love me some joyous space tracks and this has truly filled the galactic gap in my heart for it!
