Autograf — Metaphysical (ft. Janelle Kroll)


It’s easy to assume that artists as successful as Chicago’s Autograf have been early on, with chart-topping releases consistently coming one after another, might plateau at some point, but that’s so far from the case here. The trio are out with their third original to date this week, the lead single off their forthcoming album, and it’s beyond anything we’ve heard from them yet. Metaphysical not only delivers on their spectacularly dynamic style, but also carries with it a great message about challenging societal norms and looking simply at who we are as humans, rather than focusing stereotypes. This outlook is brilliantly conveyed through delicately layered instrumentals featuring vibrant keys, strings and their signature marimba, topped by fantastic vocals courtesy of the lovely Janelle Kroll.

The release also brings news of their signing to Ninja Tune / Counter, home to ODESZA, Bonobo and more, making it clear Autograf is only just getting started. Catch the track below, and keep your ears perked for more new music soon.

THE JAM JAR 131 | Curated By Dim Sum


Over the past year we’ve become increasing hypnotised by talented duo Dim Sum’s disco soaked, vibrant brand of music, having featured their fantastic tracks such as Coucou Disco and High Love, alongside ace remixes, in our Jam Jar series numerous times. Today we’re very excited to have the Parisian pair join us to deliver their own selection of favorites right now, a collection which we couldn’t have dreamt up any better ourselves. So without further ado, let’s jump into it.

Satchmode — Never Gonna Take You Back (LEFTI Remix)


We’ve said it before and we’ll just say it once more, NYC’s LEFTI is on fire right now. After excellent remixes for the likes of Solidisco, ASTR and AVAN LAVA, he’s quickly solidified himself as one to keep an eye on. Most recently the rising producer has taken on Never Gonna Take You Back, the single by LA-based dream pop duo Satchmode that saw chart-topping success after it’s release over the summer. With this rework we’re treated to a filter house transformation of the original, that sees LEFTI spinning layers upon layers of tasty grooves and looped vocal clips to perfection, in turn delivering a refreshingly infectious, energetic jam complete with throwback flair. Hump day anthem you say? Don’t mind if we do.

Hear the original as well if you haven’t yet.



We’ve been on a serious world music kick lately, so when this debut single from New York duo SOFI TUKKER came across our radar last week, we were sold after the first few notes. Drinkee is a track thats myriad influences are immediately apparent, with Tucker Halpern’s background as a DJ and Sophie Hawley–Weld’s international upbringing joining forces brilliantly. It combines lyrics in Portuguese adapted direct from Brazilian poet Chacal, sung over an array of twangy guitar, bubbling bass and bongo drums all blended to form a uniquely refreshing sound. It’s a bit nonsensical (unless of course you understand Portuguese) but a whole lot of fun, and has got us pretty excited about the future of this project. We’re sure you’ll feel the same after one listen.

Drinkee is out officially now via The Knocks’ HeavyRoc Music. Don’t hesitate to pick it up and enjoy.

CS PREMIERE | Mahalo — Wave Attack


Just yesterday our friends at Los Angeles Music Project, commonly known as LAMP, announced a brand new member of their roster, Mahalo. Today we’re bringing you the first official release on the label from the Hawai’i-born, LA–based producer, entitled Wave Attack, and what a debut it is.

Past the successful release with his Enjoy The Ride EP, Mahalo is quickly making a name for himself in the L.A. scene and beyond, with this latest output looking to continue the momentum. Characteristic to his dynamic style, he’s delivered a multilayered tech house heater with this one. We’re brought in through a series of poignant kicks and tantalizing notes, which become fluidly enveloped by resonant synths and surging basslines as the mesmerizing groove carries us through. Another dimension is added half way through, as Mahalo pulls us up for fresh air with a pristine piano breakdown and choice vocal line to really push the swell forward. It’s a remarkable effort from the rising producer, and a clear indicator of the type of technical talent he possesses. Have a listen below, snag a free download here and be sure to keep your ears perked for more from Mahalo in the future.



We’re embracing the feel–good and dialing up the brightness this week with a vibrant new collection of tunes, ready to carry you into the weekend with ease. Starting things off we’ve got an absolutely brilliant remix, easily one of our recent favorites, from London-born, LA-based Henri of Flight Facilities’ Two Bodies. Highlights past that include an exceedingly funky, slightly wonky take on MyKill’s new single Run Away from our bud AIMES, Canadian duo Love Thy Brother delivering a mesmerizing cover of Steve Winwood’s 80s classic Higher Love, Viceroy turning up the heat with a killer rendition of The Beach Boys Kokomo — plus plenty more. Dig in!

CS PREMIERE | Zibra — Paris (Ren Phillips Remix)


After supporting the likes of Years & Years, Citizens and Saint Raymond on tour this year, London trio ZIBRA are quickly making a name for themselves with their distinctive indie–rock style. Earlier this month they dropped their new single Paris, which has gained quite a bit of attention, proving immediately addicting with chunky guitar riffs, bold dance grooves and a chorus courtesy of lead singer Sam Battle that’s infectious beyond belief.

Today we have the pleasure of premiering a remix of the single by fellow London–based artist Ren Phillips, who we’ve championed a number of times on the site previously. Hot on the heels of a slew of choice remixes and a new collaboration beside Cameron Bloomfield, Comfort In Your Company, Ren has positioned himself as a producer to be reckoned with. Here he’s transformed ZIBRA’s gritty original into a formidable house cut, pulling it onto the dancefloor through a combination of crisp hi-hats, sunken bassline and pitched vocal chops, that brings a dark vibe prepped for the late night. Get into it below and enjoy.

Gallant — Weight In Gold (Zimmer Remix)


Yes, there’s been a seemingly endless stream of remixes of Gallant’s Weight In Gold since it’s release at the beginning of the summer. But none that have done it justice quite as well as this. For his first remix in nearly a year, Parisian producer Zimmer has taken on the LA-based artist’s breakthrough single, delivering a finely crafted combination of styles we couldn’t have dreamt up any better. Considering the originals vocal is arguably one of the best on a track so far this year, it’s certainly not easy to handle, yet Zimmer’s done an outstanding job mixing it with how own distinct production here. Seamlessly fusing the two, he lets an ebb and flow of energy and emotion carry the listener through with effortless ease, resulting in a uniquely magical atmosphere on the whole. Don’t let this one pass you by.

CS PREMIERE | Babe — Baby You’re Right (Touch Tone Remix)


Monday mornings are rarely something to look forward to, but luckily today we’re starting things off with the premiere of a brand new remix from Touch Tone, which will surely help lift those spirits. After a bit of a hiatus, the LA producer is back and clearly hasn’t missed a beat, putting a lush spin on Baby You’re Right, by fellow California–based outfit BABE. Touch Tone works in perfect unison with the original vocal, courtesy of lead singer Derek Thomas, ideally complimenting it’s unique draw through an upbeat indie dance atmosphere of bright percussive touches, disco-tinged synths and a buoyant bassline. It’s that hanging on to summer, warm nights anthem you didn’t know you were looking for, but now’ve found, and would do well to it keep close.

Have a listen to the remix below, and be sure to pick yourself up a free download here.
