Nile Rodgers has proven his knack for writing hit songs over the past five decades, with collabs from Duran Duran to Daft Punk under his belt. Keeping up with the newest names in funky pop music, Rodgers and Chic have taken to the Jools Holland show on BBC Two with Mura Masa and NAO to premiere their funky new track, “Boogie All Night.”

NAO acts as the main vocalist on the track, pairing her breathy, high-energy vocals with Rodgers’ classic guitar riffs. Mura Masa also takes the stage wielding a guitar, holding his own against the funk and disco legend. With a new album from Nile Rodgers and Chic set to arrive later this year, there is no telling what kind of groovy collaborations will be seen.

After much of the country endured a serious heat wave this past week, I think we’re all in need of some chilled out new releases! Nao, the pseudonym for electronic-funk artist Neo Joshua, has released her debut album, For All We Know, after two successful EPs last year. Brit trio Beaty Heart is back for round two, sharing Till The Tomb, an album laden with percussive texture and smooth vocals. Composer Ben Chatwin, otherwise known for his experimental project, Talvihorros, has released Heat & Entropy, a minimalistic interpretation of classical composition and Owen’s The King of Whys is out today offering reflective songs with Mike Kinsella’s usual sage lyrics. Brooklyn-based DM Stith has come a long way since being discovered by Sufjan Stevens, exploring a greater range of sound by allowing his falsetto vocals to unravel through the use of electronic effects in his newest record, Pigeonheart. Last, DIY Maryland band Foozle has shared their second album, Romantic Comedies, revealing the idealizations and misinterpretations of love and unrequited love. Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and be sure to follow our playlist to know about all the new releases you check out!
