Australia’s most loved electronic act PNAU is back with “Chameleon”, their first single in 4 years. This new electrifying tune is produced by Sam Littlemore (co-producer of PNAU’s 2007 self-titled album and now an integral part of the band) and features the addition of Kira Devine, previously a dancer and back-up singer for Lauryn Hill, on vocals bringing a new layer to the band’s vision.
To know PNAU is to know that their creative process cannot be bundled into just one song and this is why the single comes with a handpicked selection of remixes courtesy of some of the world’s most prolific DJs.

After a busy summer performing at key festivals such as Bestival, Parklife and Lovebox, Bristol-based production duo Icarus return with new track “They Are Not Like You”. This emotionally charged cut sees the brothers further refining their skills, building on the sound they developed on recent tracks “October” and “Home”.
“They Are Not Like You” kicks off with a simple looped refrain and this hypnotic voiced slowly gives way to the main vocals. The lush production features a burbling distorted bassline and Icarus’s trademark syncopated live percussion. The result is one of their finest moments to date, further cementing their sound.
Icarus will be announcing a new autumn tour very soon. Follow them on Facebook for more info and check out their music on SoundCloud. Buy the new single on
Based in Leipzig, Germany, Daniel Goldstein is Lane 8, a DJ / producer / songwriter whose cross-genre approach redefines the boundaries of house music. His singles have repeatedly topped the Hype Machine charts and his remixes for Eric Prydz, Above & Beyond and most recently Odesza have shown a knack for appealing to both mainstream and indie crowds, as well as his deep house base.
What sets Lane 8 apart from the crowded dance music scene is his ability to craft music that succeeds both in the club and on the iPod – a skill that has landed him widespread support from the likes of The Magician, Annie Mac and Pete Tong, who named him a “Future Star”.
Lane 8’s debut artist album, Rise, was released last July via Anjunadeep, one of the hottest electronic labels in the world, with Goldstein himself jokingly describing it as “dreamy back-rub house.”

British-born Berlin-based artist George FitzGerald has already made a name for himself as a star DJ and sought-after producer and he is finally sharing his long delayed debut album Fading Love. Lead single “Full Circle” is a sophisticated and moody downtempo electronica jam (not unlike Kruder & Dorfmeister or Caribou) featuring crooning vocals from Boxed In’s frontman Oli Bayston.
FitzGerald witnessed the birth of the dubstep scene during the mid-2000s in London, but he didn’t begin sharing music of his own until he moved to Berlin in 2010. By 2013, he had released a string of intimate, melancholic club tracks, perfectly blending dubstep and UK garage and slowly evolving towards a more minimalistic techno/house sound. With the release of his debut full-length, FitzGerald uncovers lush house landscapes and addictive grooves coupled with an utterly modern touch and pop sensibility.

Based in Copenhagen, Tomas Barfod released his debut solo album Salton Sea back in 2012, after about ten years of musical experience as part of WhoMadeWho and four albums as Filur, an electro duo he started with his old friend Kasper Bjørke . His solo success paved the way for his sophomore album, Love Me, which features a string and brass section and musicians like Here We Go Magic’s Luke Temple and long-term collaborator Nina K on vocal duties.
While still keeping his debut’s intimate delicacy and beautiful sense of fragility, this follow-up is also more audacious. From the start Barfod was acutely aware that in order for these songs to come to life they needed to have vocals, even if piecing it all together was like finishing a puzzle. Love Me is many-textured, endlessly rewarding, an organic-sounding electronic album utilising real heart and soul.
Here is a gorgeous remix of single “Busy Baby” by Oliver Nelson.
