This summer has brought an onslaught of killer electronic and club tunes and we were a little too busy dancing the time away for a proper July roundup.
Dance music is far too prolific and it's impossible to keep up with but here’s our attempt at highlighting some of the best EPs, Singles, Albums, Comps, and Mixes from the last two months.
Selections skew towards the incredibly vibrant Brooklyn scene because that's our home.
We're always looking for new contributors because we'd love to bring some life back into this site, if your interested just click this link to send me an email or shoot us a message on Instagram!
If you're here for the first time check out our monthly roundups from rest of the year.

“Who Goes There”, the debut collaborative release from Ambient Babestation Meltdown and JBS arrives on Optimo Music bathed in reverence to science-fiction and the infinite, charged possibilities of interplay between raw electronics and the human voice
“New dark swing” is what bloggers called it back around the turn of the millennium: The stripped-bare, crisply produced, bass-heavy UK garage which would mutate in short order into dubstep. It was short-lived but pivotal sound, and now Danish producer Adam Schierbeck—here on a Manchester “no-nonsense club music” label—recreates it with glorious gloss and menace."
Deep bass mastermind Mala has gradually expanded his work with live musicians over the years, but this collaboration with the keyboard superstar of the new London jazz generation is something else.

The opening track on Kai Whiston’s new album (coming out Sept 16th) features Whiston’s vocal smothered underneath a driving breakbeat and vivid strings.
"Seventh Circle Of Litness is a dizzying collection of rave inspired dance tracks that have no earthly business sitting together on a record.
“My aim was to mutate those genres, collecting different types of Arabic rhythms and cooking them with Jungle, Jersey Club, Reggaeton, Footwork, etc. It’s an irreversible equation, like a chemical reaction, where the output is a melted piece which cannot be broken down into its separate inputs” – ABADIR
Bass has sifted the pockets of its sub-genres for decades, perpetually in search of a fresh direction. SCREAMER’ plugs spirited pop melodies and a scorched, glitchy coating to the UK Bass cannon. The production is akin to a Grimes record; it could, in fact, be the more dangerous twin sister of ‘Vision’. This is a wondrous and invigorating release that encapsulates the most lucid of club moments while airing a conflict that asks undemanding questions. - https://100words.uk/
