Black Water
Techno be damned. OK, maybe not always, but that seems to be the sentiment as Apparat (real name Sascha Ring) continues his march away from Berlin towards a uniquely resonant electronic pop. On "Black Water," Ring returns with his usual sonic detail but trades the rule book for the heart. The second slice of Apparat's fourth album, The Devil's Walk, to be released September 27 on Mute, this track enacts a steady crescendo with sturdy bass, through-the-wall trumpets, top-shelf electronic experimentation and an elegant vocal melody that grows right along with its emotional bombast.

Watch Me Dance (Sebastian remix)
Toddla T = ravey pinball wizard. Roots Manuva = Britdub rapper. SebastiAn = Parisian electrobanger. Toddla T's "Watch Me Dance" with Roots Manuva remixed by SebastiAn? A factory-built wall of chilly bleeps, bank robber alarms, and crunchy bass. No undulations, no frills, and no progression—just angry, robotic noise that your parents will never, ever understand. Play it until Toddla T's new LP drops on Ninja Tune later this summer. Or until the ceiling caves in. Whichever happens first.

Hits Me Like A Rock (feat. Bobby Gillespie)
“Hits Me Like A Rock” is the first single to be taken from CSS’s forthcoming new album La Liberación and features guest vocals from Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie. The full-length album, the band’s third, is a true melding of their debut’s riotous anarchy and their sophomore album Donkey’s grungy maturity. This single is bubbling over with some serious pop energy, something the band have always had in bucketloads but now feel newly empowered to express fully and freely. Lovefoxxx attributes their new zest for songwriting to being relaxed and at home, explaining “Being in São Paulo helped a whole lot. I don't like being a foreigner for too long. I was in love with my life. Feeling energetic. I was feeling inspired and happy."
