The Heat of the Week: Justice – Alakazam !
The return of Justice has been one of the most anticipated comebacks of the year for dance music. Following”Safe and Sound” and “Randy” earlier this fall, the Parisian duo continue their efforts to revitalize disco with “Alakazam !,” a funk-saturated treasure all Justice fans will be excited about.
The Breakout Select: RUFUS DU SOL – Innerbloom (Lane 8 Remix)
RUFUS DU SOL are having their moment in the commercial spotlight at the moment. “Innerbloom” was a unanimous standout on their sophomore LP, and German favorite Lane 8 stepped up to take their eerie single into a different heavenly space.
