A roundup of hot new electro, house and vocal tracks for you to listen to.. 




**Clubplanet Radio Tune of the Week**
Marshall Jefferson - "Move Your Body (Tchami Tribute)" - [NO LABEL] 

The word "classic" seems to be thrown around in the music community the same way high school seniors throw around the word "love"....However, you will absolutely LOVE what Tchami has done to this house music CLASSIC! After breaking out this tribute remix at Governor's Island for Laidback Luke's "Super You & Me" show, Tchami is now offering it as a free download on his soundcloud. It is no secret that Tchami's new "future house" sound is among one of the more popular of this year, and here he pays tribute to one of the tracks which helped him form it. He keeps in tact the housey pianos, the 80's power strings and adds some slight 'jackin' elements to make this our tune of the week. - MB




Duke
Dumont - "Won't Look Back" - [BLASE BOY CLUB/VIRGIN/EMI] 

British DJ/Producer Duke Dumont seems ready for a trifecta of chart topping NuHouse singles with the upcoming "Won't Look Back."  Following up the Whitney Houston-sampling "I Got U," he flips vocal styles bringing in a big voiced soulful diva to wail the vocals over a bubbling house vibe.  Although probably not actual samples, elements of ABC's "Look of Love" and Black Box "Right on Time" seem to be sprinkled throughout the instrumentation and vocal effects deployed.  What is interesting about his singles is that while they all share the same DNA, they all have a completely different vibe and feel but are clearly related, which leaves us wondering what other directions he would explore on a hopefully soon to be released full length album. - RS




BT ft Christian Burns - "Paralyzed" - [ENHANCED]

Longtime collaborators BT and Christian Burns reunite for a mini tour and a new track - Paralyzed.  With its festival-friendly and commercial flavor, "Paralyzed" sounds like it would be a bonus track from BT's masterful 'A Song Across Wires' album where he took the current sounds of EDM and filtered them through his pristinely nano-focused production.  There's a touch of the trademark stuttered vocals and a bit of guitars and club-friendly electro sounds which you would expect from a Zedd record.  Actually, this track is so polished that it could quickly follow Tritonal's recent "Now or Never" and "Colors" to conquer dance radio as well.    Highly recommended.   - RS




D-Wayne & Leon Bolier - "Detonate" - [SPINNIN]

Afrojack protege D-Wayne and producer Leon Bolier join forces, literally, and unleash the big room track "Detonate." A recent point of discussion has been how instrumental tracks are named and someone clearly put thought into this one.  Detonate means to cause an explosion like a bomb, usually in a controlled or systematic way.  This track is solid and well-produced, but definitely not a quick explosion in your face.    It's a very edgy track in that it keeps you on the edge, slowly increasing levels and intensity while dropping and rising over the phrases. The layers of atonal noise, violin vs electric guitar interplay,  drum fills, and spatial effects build but don't hit maximum velocity until halfway through the track.  At at time when most of the big room tracks hit you immediately with a hook and bang you in the face with it, "Detonate" is much more subtle and lures you in.  And yes, we tried not to write this review with the obvious sexual innuendos.  - RS



Moko - "Your Love" - [MTA/VIRGIN/EMI]

This seems to be the year for British male soul singers (Sam Smith,  John Newman, ETML), but it's about time for the ladies to get the spotlight.  You first heard Moko on last year's "Count on Me" with Chase & Status.  The retro rave-inspired track featured a sped up sample and Moko singing the verse and chorus with her expansive voice.  She can easily go between a deep rasp and a honeyed soul voice in a fluid way, reminiscent of Shara Nelson or Heather Small.  Listen to her debut EP 'Black,' the comparison to Shara Nelson is even more fitting as it sounds like it could be the followup to Massive Attack's legendary 'Blue Lines."  Leading off her second EP, Gold, comes "Your Love," a much more jaunty pop affair melding a Clean Bandit production style with an '80s r&b vocal.  Although the song comes off as subtle on first listen, the chorus hook has an undeniable Nile Rodgers feel.  The video is filmed in a single take with her dancing and singing around an abandoned building.  Although the lighting is dark and unflattering, Moko shines through in a way that only a true star can.   - RS
