Yeee this is some super exciting stuff right here from our boy Mahalo! We've been big supporters of this Hawaiian bred dance floor maestro, and today he's heating things up again with a sweet new single out on the up-and-coming dance label No Definition - a part of the legendary Swiss label Enormous Tunes home to some of our absolute faves like Nora En Pure, Croatia Squad, EDX and more. Teaming up again with the incredibly talented topline genius Cat Lewis, the two have struck gold in "Be My Love." Mahalo's nu-disco instrumental is full of energetic piano and synthwork with some super spicy bass expertly layered behind Cat's vibrant pop vocals. I asked Mahalo to tell me a bit about how the song came about: 

"We started a track "Be My Love" last year around December - it was originally a Nu Disco track that, for me, was never really panning out into something that I really liked in terms of the instrumental. However, I'd always be sending Cat some new WIP stuff and he'd continue to bring up "Be My Love." We eventually found a common ground with this track "gimme your love" which sort of turned into a happy balance of the two and thus this popped out. We weren't super sure what to do with it at first as it's a lot different than the departure I've taken in the last 6 months, but I showed it to My Digital Enemy when I was hanging with them one time and they were certain I had something here. We showed it to EDX and the rest was history!"

Big moves are being made in the Mahalo camp. A track of this caliber is certainly a sign that word is getting out about this up-and-coming producer. We're absolutely pumped to be able to premiere this record, and so happy to see the quick progression of this artist from relative ambiguity to upstart fame. We know there's much more to come, but for now enjoy this amazing record. You can purchase from No Definition on Beatport here.

Ahh back to the grind. If you're feeling a bit of the Mon-daze that I am then you are really going to appreciate this one from London via Slovenia based BluBird. "Wake Up" is an energetic upbeat feel good record that is totally wiping the sleep from my eyes. A deep kick, synth stabs and claps accompany a fun guitar line filling in the instrumental underneath a relaxing female voice urging us to "Wake Up! Sun is shining for you!" Out via our homies over at The Vibe Guide you can nab this as a download or stream here.

Okay I've got your cure for the Monday blues right here! This is a tremendous feel good tune courtesy of London based Marcus Marr and the always stellar Chet Faker. "The Trouble With Us" doesn't get too complicated and that's where I feel this track excels. Driving in the beginning with a flanging, funky guitar (or is it bass?) line, the disco beat eventually flashes in with a super catchy pop oriented chorus. "Ohh god that's the trouble with me" sings Chet reminding us that trust is a two way street, and that's the "Trouble With Us." This track could make waves, and I can definitely see this as a radio crossover hit.
