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

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

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.

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