Every once in a while, a record comes along which resonates in a special way, stands the test of time, and brings the same reaction to the dancefloor now as it did on release all those years ago. Originally released in 2000 and now acquired by Defected over two decades later, 'Groovejet (If This Ain't Love)' is one of those records.
Given the royal remix treatment by platinum-selling producer Purple Disco Machine alongside regular collaborator Lorenz Rhode for modern day dancefloors, this hotly anticipated mix has been teased at parties across the globe throughout summer '21.
With the unmistakable vocal of Sophie Ellis-Bextor still shining centre stage, Purple Disco Machine and Lorenz Rhode's signature glowy synths, punchy drum programming and filtered bassline grab your attention from the get-go.
Given the seal of approval from Spiller and Sophie themselves, this gold-standard remix continues to cement the legacy of 'Groovejet (If This Ain't Love)' for years to come.
Relentless, infectious and utterly distinct, Monsterman is the debut solo album from Power Rob, featuring collaborations with Elevate the Sky, Popcorn Kid, Fulvio Colasanto and LLUVA. Mixing elements of funk, pop, and rock, Monsterman takes the sound forged on his debut album and takes them to a whole new level.
Anemioa is a word that perfectly describes 'Memories', the debut album from Coastal, deeply nostalgic for a time you've never known. The Leeds-based retrowave band capture the sounds that popularised 80s music and blend them with modern production and songwriting techniques, incorporating heavy aesthetics and themes of love and heartbreak into their evocative lyrics.
Featuring collaborations with Oblique and Cymatica, 'Memories' delivers a range of songs, from the upbeat yet meaningful story of friendship in '92', to the sax-filled lust for love and romance in 'Summer Eyes', that are sure to become favourites for any retrowave lover.

Released on Friday March 11th 2022 on Domino, 'Hits To The Head' features 18 classic Franz Ferdinand tracks, plus two brand-new tracks Billy Goodbye and Curious, produced by Alex Kapranos, Julian Corrie and Stuart Price (Dua Lipa, Madonna, Pet Shop Boys).
