We are going to be spoiled this summer, New York-based DFA Records will release a lot of new stuff! Some of the artists are new, others are well known routiniers. Altair Nouveau, wish is Brandon Mitchell from San Francisco, will make his DFA debut in July with a 12″ in collaboration with the Solardisco imprint from Glasgow based artist Maelstrom. You can hear ‘Space Fortress’ and ‘Showdown’ on his Myspace profile.

Another newcomer is James Curd, who already did a remix for The Juan Maclean on DFA. He’ll also release his first 12 inch in July. You can check out his vocal-track ‘We just won’t stop’ on his myspace as well.

This week Still Going, which is Eric Duncan from Rub ‘n’ Tug and Liv Spencer from House Of House, annouced that their second single will be released this summer as well! ‘Still Going Theme’ was one of our favorite tracks of 2007, so we are really looking forward to this! Another thing where we are really looking forward to is the new single from Holy Ghost! which will be called ‘I Will Come Back.’ We don’t know when it will be released, but the single will probably contain remixes from DJ Mehdi and Classixx, who recently did a great remix for Phoenix‘ new single ‘Lisztomania’

In a few weeks the new Shit Robot will be finally released as well. ‘Simple Things’ will contain remixes from Todd Terje and Serge Santiago and will be in stores at the end of June. We are especially digging the Serge Santiago remix, which comes with a cool break in the middle of the track, and after the break the songs transforms into a real piano-house anthem!

In Case you didn’t noticed: there were recently 2 new releases added to the DFA catalogue too: Black Meteoric Star and Walter Jones. Black Meteoric Star is Gavin ‘The Wizzard’ Russom, who used to repear the old school analog synths for DFA. He made a hypnotic analogue synth album with spacey and acidic sounds. Walter Jones on the other hand delivered a great electronic-disco EP. The bassline of his track ‘Living Without Your Love’ is descriped as something between ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ and Daft Punk’s ‘Around The World’ Sounds good? Yes it does!

To End this post I’ve found a dj-mix from House Of House. You’ll probably know them because their first song ‘Rushing To Paradise’ was a real hype. They did this mix to promote their fabric gig from last month.
