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

8th Grader – Sex Tongue

8th Grader

8th Grader

Wow, is it getting hot in here with the video for ‘Sex Tongue’ by 8th Grader (aka Jay Martinovich). But hold your horses a minute, as the video is purely tongue and cheek as 8th Grader explains below:

“This song/video is a narrative as well as a critique on idealized sexuality in the media. I wanted to show a juxtaposition of clichéd sexual norms alongside queer culture in San Francisco and America. I also just wanted to write a fun song to dance to in the style of Prince and the Tom Tom Club.”

Watch the video below.

Sounds like: Chromeo, PWNDTIAC, Meanwhile, That Girl With Dark Eyes, TJH87, Prince, Twin Shadow, Blood Orange, Disclosure

PWNDTIAC – Hey Girl

PWNDTIAC by Sascha Bente

PWNDTIAC by Sascha Bente

We absolutely crave the music produced by this German musketeer, PWNDTIAC. Describing himself on his facebook page as “The PWNDTIAC cruises around with heavy basslines, crispy drumsets and cheesy synths. Nothing new so far, yet there is something about it… and you won’t be able to find out until you hop on for a ride, bitch!”

And that is exactly what Indietronica has done…as have a few others including Aeroplane who has included ‘Hey Girl’ on his ‘Not-So-Monthly Mix July 2014‘.

The video follows Maike Mohr and Tessa Achtermann looking very cool dancing around a city. The track is nu-disco at it’s finest and we especially love the deep sax interlude mixed in with the early 80’s bassline.

The EP was released on 30 June via We Love This Rec and includes a just as infectious track called ‘Ready’ feat digitalfoxglove, as well as remixes by Justin Faust and Douze. You can buy the ‘Hey Girl EP’ here.

Sounds like: Ronika, Aeroplane, Prince, Harts, Blondie, Chromeo, Daft Punk, Justice, Ballet School, Bananarama
