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.

Want to find out more, check 8th Grader’s soundcloud page. Just be careful of googling ‘8th grader sex tongue’.

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