All For It

We've been showering you with some nu-disco goodness recently, a trend which I only hope to continue as long as sun keeps shining and the warm weather keeps rolling in. Monitor 66 is a Swedish trio I recently came across when they gave this one away for free download. Appropriately labeled as "Blisco", you can imagine the kind of warm, summery images this tropical jam might conjure up. Check it out below.

Soundstream, aka Frank Timm, is a Berlin based producer and DJ with a refined ear for all things house and disco. He made waves back in 06 with "Love Jam", a refreshing deeper number that makes his love of the older detroit and chicago sounds evident. All Night was Timm's vinyl-only release from 2010, but having come across it for the first time recently and realizing how fucking good it is I really have no problem posting about it. "Deeper Love" is my pick of the three track release, but really, you can't go wrong with any of them. This is the way funkier house music is supposed to sound. As said before, this was a vinyl only release, but there just may be a link somewhere out there on the internet for it didn't hear it from me.

I leave you with XXXY's recent set at the Boiler Room in London, which can be streamed from Red Bull Music Academy radio. It's a delectable collection of future-garage and classic house sounds. Make sure to listen to the very end, where you can hear a track off his upcoming "Everything" EP played out in full. Stream from the player below, or if that ain't working just follow the link to the show directly.
