Roundup, June #1

From Y2K inspired pop to 90’s trance inspired techno, we roundup our favourite releases of the week. Listen below. 


Dom Dolla, Nelly Furtado – Eat Your Man

Dom Dolla’s latest banger also serves as somewhat of a comeback for Canadian pop star Nelly Furtado, who contributes the track’s repeated chant with lyrics that reference some of her biggest hits. It’s a delicious bit of nostalgia fuel backed by trance infused tech house, and even if Eat Your Man doesn’t really make the most of Furtado’s abilities, it’s a strong reintroduction to the girl that once had the whole world saying ‘whoa, Nelly!’ 


LSDXOXO – Double Tap 

Following a slight pivot last year that saw the DJ and producer touch on grunge and 90’s punk, LSDXOXO returns to the club on his latest single. Taken from his upcoming EP Delusions of Grandeur (D.O.G), Double Tap singles in on the acerbic industrial, trance, and techno influences that have always been present in LSDXOXO’s most audacious contributions to the dancefloor. 


Tove Lo – I Like You

Swedish alt-pop star Tove Lo’s latest stand alone single is a tribute to early 2000’s dance music. Think energetic, euphoric trance laced with sparkling pads. “I wanted to make another dance song that sonically felt like a nod to 90’s and Y2K dance music,” she says of the single. “It’s not the usual pop structure but it’s perfect for this song, I think.”


Dorian Electra – Sodom & Gomorrah 

Always one for audacious social commentary served as irony and wry humour, on Sodom & Gomorrah, Dorian Electra explores sodomy by sleazing up its Biblical connotations. Working in their usual hyperpop electropunk style, the track is a chaotic ode to subversive sex, delivered with a metal attitude and sly wink in the direction of those who’ll likely take offence. 


Mura Masa – Drugs

Featuring emerging Peruvian singer Daniela Lalita, Drugs speaks towards Mura Masa’s constant shapeshifting sound. Here, he ventures into laidback deep house, much calmer waters compared to his glitchier exploits. There’s a classic feel to Drugs, like the whole thing has been washed over with the energy of the 90’s dancefloor.
