A few weeks ago, Disclosure tipped one of the frequently played tracks in their DJ sets, and not much of a surprise, the track is instantly addicting. “So Fine” is a funky, synth heavy track by Montreal-based producer, Pomo. It has sort of a jagged disco feel to it, not dissimilar from some of label mate Kaytranada’s more recent music, and takes you on a trip through a retro soundscape built out of fat poly chords, glimmering arpeggios and a weighty synth bass that staggers along with the beat. The dreamy synth pop vocals add a nice melody over top and help give the track a nice pop sheen. You can grab the track for free in the comments section, and if you head over to the HW&W Recordings Facebook, you can delight in a number of free tracks from the likes of Pomo, Kaytranada, Ganz, and Sweater Beats.
Pedestrian is following up his stunning Hoyle Road Ep with a new track hosted over at the Mixmag site. “Betamax” is pretty straightforward as far as his sound goes, relying heavily on acoustic elements and jazz-influenced melodics to make an intricate and smokey soundscape overtop a deep house groove. The track has an almost spooky vibe to it, with vocals floating in and out of the frame, that makes it best served on a moonlit night.

Vancouver based producer, Pat Lok, is back after last month’s sunny “Same Hearts” with an electro tinged disco track. “Move Slow” features the smooth vocals of alo and is a flawless indie dance track that runs strong off a pop music high. The production is sleek and sexy and the hooks are massive, particularly on the chorus. The shuffling rhythm makes the track feel super playful as well, only adding to the appeal. You can grab the track for free on his Facebook page:
Blisspop favorite Cassian just dropped a rework of Cajmere classic “Brighter Days.” It keeps the track familiar while giving it a club-friendly tech house low end.

Cassian has it up as a free download over at Gotta Dance Dirty. Grab it while it lasts!
