Western Disco “The Sun (BlackBox remix)” (Rise)

Daniele Davoli turns Steve Evansson’s tune into a beautiful, spine-tingling summer anthem.

Pharrell Williams “Happy” (Star Trak)

The man of the moment shows he can also do breezy, bright-as-a-button pop. From the “Despicable Me 2” soundtrack.

Dan Bodan “Anonymous” (DFA)

Berlin-based singer-songwriter produces a haunted, beguiling piece of electro-noir

Ciara “Ciara” (RCA)

Shimmering high-quality r’n’b with a bite on Ciara’s fifth album.

Jon Hopkins “Immunity” (Domino)

The sound of a glorious night out with the producer best known for his collaborations.
