Fri, Jun 7, 2013, 09:00


Disclosure “Settle” (Universal/Island)

New-school house with oodles and oodles of pop appeal from the Lawrence brothers.

Jagwar Ma “Howlin’” (Marathon Artists)

Australian duo’s debut album keeps you humming with addictive, brazen hooks and widescreen space grooves. Album is streaming in full here and the ace “Come Save Me” is below.

DJ Rashad & DJ Manny “Drums Please” (Hyperdub)

Magnetic fusion of snares and percussion as Rashad and Manny show off some fancy footwork

Adrian Younge/Ghostface Killah “Twelve Reasons To Die” (Soul Temple)

Ghostface narrates the sad, sorry tales of Tony Starks with choice musical backing from Adrian Younge’s band of soul buccaneers.

Robin Thicke “Blurred Lines” (Star Trak)

T.I. and Pharrell help the r’n’b dude get his summer hit freak on.
