After heating up the stage for Charlotte Gainsbourg's tour this summer, Saint DX is back with a new single "Prime Of Your Life". Saint Dx is the solo project of Aurélien Hamm, former member of the group Apes & Horses. His music, like his name, smells like the synthetic Pop of the 80s and 90s. Saint'Dx' is a direct reference to the famous "Yamaha DX7" synthesizer that can be found on many of the records released at that time.
After a remarkable debut on Cracki Records with "Regrets", "Still Care" or "First Fantasy" Saint Dx continues its solo journey with "Prime Of Your Life", drawing on the best of the 80's without ever falling into the pitfalls of a cheesy Pop. On the contrary, Aurélien brings a modern and refreshing touch to it, both in the production and in the overall aesthetics of the project.
Dad Bod is the American slang for the famous belly that appears for mens in in their thirties . Dad Bod is also the name of the American quartet from Salt Lake City that we are glad to present you today. A Pop rock signature straight from the 60's, a touch of jazz, Lofi pop influences and an unfailing relaxation, that's the approach that the three brothers Marinos and Ben Ostler convey through their music.
After a first noticed Ep at the beginning of the year and an album in preparation, Dad Bod's siblings released a new single "Some Kind Of Confidence" with the pals atf Nice Guys Records.
Blue Material is a new project formed by Canadian singer and multi-instrumentalist Thom Gillies. The debut self-titled release is a lo-fi pop album that fuses itself through the sorrows and triumphs of a love lost in a city slowly being transformed by capitalism. The gritty and terse tracking approach was inspired heavily by overlooked, late 70’s funk tracks by artists like Universal Togetherness Band, Evan’s Pyramid and Cloud One.
“Personal” was originally slated to appear on the Blue Material album but was left off to be released as a follow up single. The track is an up-tempo funk song with an influential disco feel, almost reminiscent of early Chic or Prince demos.

PREMIERE: Dirty Jesus - Don't Fuck With My Shit (Da Floor Mix)[Paper Recordings]
A few weeks ago we discovered Cvd's new single "Mr Fuego". The Parisian offered us a non-stop flight alongside his double Jet Setter and a few rhythm boxes calibrated for the occasion. You have to take this track as a good omen since it is the precursor of a series of singles to appear on MENACE.
