I was going to do another African post next (and will soon, Sean Bisch!) but I got caught up in the nu-disco matrix once again...
First off is Cut Copy, with a straight 80s vibe on Hearts on Fire-thanks to Michael for this one.

The next two will be featured on my soon-come podcast, BNYUB parts 1 & 2. But I can´t hold them back any longer... St. Albans, Hertfordshire based Friendly Fires followed by Ladyhawke-aka Pip Brown, the Kiwi with worldwide roots-with the absolute feel-good dance track of the whole damn year! And note that both Ladyhawke and Cut Copy are on the same label-Modular-so take notice, seen?!

And let´s bring it on back to the USA, birthplace of disco in the first damn place, with some current crazy shit, thanks to Plantlife. This guy´s stuff is killer start to finish, so savor this small taste and then go get more...
