Lunar Lunes: Lemaitre reveal new single, NWYR and Andrew Rayel join forces, Mark Knight releases new Toolroom original + moreLemaitre Rocket Girl Rac Mi

Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.

Norwegian indie duo Lemaitre bring their breezy, easygoing style to “Fast Lovers,” and Andrew Rayel teams up with W&W under their NWYR alias for “The Melody.” The Disco Fries reveal a funky remix for “Blue” from Kaidro on Armada, and Rogue returns to Monstercat for the dreamy “Oceans.” Dirty Audio taps Shai Hicari for powerful “Run & Go,” and Maddix turns up the intensity on his noteworthy big room number, “Zero.” Toolroom head honcho Mark Knight delivers a new original, “The Mystery of Old Ma Clifton,” and Mako drops a remix of last summer’s “Murder” by Alex Ariete. MELVV takes on Katelyn Tarver‘s “Kool Aid” in his newest venture, and Steve Brian remixes Tritonal‘s “Gonna Be Alright.”

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

Exclusive: French Horn Rebellion launches new label, Toucan Sounds, with a nu-disco burner from LEFTI and Spencer LudwigDSC00514 2 Min E1548779795292

French Horn Rebellion debuts their new label, Toucan Sounds, with an electro-funk heater from LEFTI, “Every Time,” featuring Spencer Ludwig. This trumpet-doused funk is the lead single off LEFTI’s DISCOTECA EP, set to be released off the newly minted imprint.

Looking to possess an artful fusion of live and electronic production touching on disco and house music, the Brooklyn-based Alex Suarez richly layers the productions on the EP for some full-bodied funk. “Every Time” begins with a groovy production over filtered vocal harmonies increasing in energy. Ludwig’s verse begins atop a bed of lush, pulsating synths and drives into an anticipation build that introduces the horns that fall into funky trumpet bliss in conjunction with smooth bass and disco-style vocals.

If “Every Time” is the imprint’s introduction to 2019, nu disco from Toucan Sounds will add a jolt of energy to the Brooklyn scene.
