Dady – Failing

Dady by Chad Griffith

NYC-based Dady is comprised of singer/songwriter Rachel Dady and songwriter/producer Jesse O’Connor.

Born Stranger – Last Night on Earth

Born Stranger

With it’s deceiving upbeat melody, Born Stranger‘s new single ‘Last Night on Earth’ is surprisingly about the sad topic of suicide.

Roisto – Apart In Love

Roisto

Roisto

Following on from the innovative video for TJH87‘s ‘Good Life‘ Feat. Gamble & Burke, is Youth Control‘s next release;  ‘Apart In Love’ by Finnish producer Roisto.

An electronic creature by nature, Roisto hides away in the dark forests of northernmost Finland. Despite Roisto meaning ‘villain’ in Finnish, the only evil deed carried out by this producer is creating his own stylist brand of disco in his studio and taking inspiration from old analog synths, tape machines, and 12” disco records.

You wouldn’t be blamed for thinking Roisto hails from France. ‘Apart In Love’ is so nu-disco, it conjures up images of a younger Daft Punk dancing in the streets of Paris with Chromeo and Chic as backing dancers.

Pre-order the EP on iTunes here.

Sounds like: TJH87, Chromeo, Daft Punk, The Ugly Club, 8th Grader, PWNDTIAC, Phoenix, Holy Ghost!, Ghost Beach, Cut Copy, Chic, Michael Jackson, Armand Van Helden

That Girl With Dark Eyes – Hey Baby

thatgirl

Barcelona-based indie-electro artist, That Girl With Dark Eyes (TGWDE) has released this funk-infused gem ‘Hey Baby’, which you can listen to below.

Also known as Tiffany Garrett Sotomayor, That Girl With Dark Eyes co-produced and recorded the track with artust Julian Saldarriaga (Love Of Lesbian). A newcomer on the electro-pop scene, but a fast-rising one, TGWDE has already opened for SkrillexPhoenixCSS and The New Pornographers and more.

‘Hey Baby’ is a nod to the current funky-disco revival pioneered in part by Chromeo and the return of Daft Punk, and quite frankly, we can’t wait to hear more!

Sounds like: Harts, Chromeo, Daft Punk, Chic, Ronika

Ronika – Shell Shocked

Ronika

Ronika

Ronika has been a firm favourite of Indietronica’s for some time now.

We praised ‘Search Siren’, and now we are super excited about her new track, ‘Shell Shocked’; a dancey floor filler full of fab 80’s and summery vibes.

Whilst lining up some exciting new collaborations for 2014, Ronika has already worked with the likes of Mylo and Herve, and recruited an eclectic cast of co-producers for a handful of songs on her debut album, ‘Selectadisc’ including Mixmag’s best new DJ of the year, Citizen, Brooklyn duo Javelin, and local hip-hop pioneer Joe Buddha. Oh and we forgot to mention that Nile Rogers is fan.

Her debut album, ‘Selectadisc’ is out on 2 June 2014 and is available for pre-order now via RecordShop. The title of the album is an ode to ‘Selectadisc’, Nottingham’s iconic independent record-store, which closed its doors for the final time in 2009.

She really is the nicest girl in pop!

Sounds like: Ballet School, Ladyhawke, Color War, The Human League, Little Boots, Kate Bush, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Bananarama, Annie
