After excessive touring throughout this year’s festival season, Austro-British musician extraordinaire SOHN returns to the studio and comes up with yet another incredible piece of sonic art, aptly titled Lessons. Warm, evolving arpeggiators are washing gently over his trademark high-pitched vocals in what might be his strongest original so far, preceding an unexpectedly raw and gritty synth breaking loose, showing a new, darker side of SOHN’s musical repertoire.

Out on September 23rd by Aus Music, wax available to pre-order now.
While Alain Macklovitch, better known as A-Trak, is busy taking selfies of him and mini turtles, his older brother David, better known as 50% of Chromeo, is about to release a new album. Alright, enough fact dropping.
The Canadian synth pop duo recently unveiled the official trailer for their upcoming fourth studio album White Women, featuring a two minute preview of a track called Over Your Shoulder. As usual, the song is all about funky disco basslines, cheerful keyboard solos and vocals ranging from sensual to steamy – the successful mixture that has become Chromeo’s trademark sound over the years. Daft Punk, you better watch out!
