Basement Jaxx release their new single “Raindrops” on 22 June in the UK. It’s been a really long time since we last heard from them and they have been sorely missed. The tune is deliciously disco-esque and the video videos are colorful, glam and kaleidoscopic.

Stuart Murdoch from Belle and Sebastian has a new project God Help the Girl releasing their album on 23 June. The first single “Funny Little Frog” is a lot jazzier than B&S, but every bit as poppy as the Scottish group.

The entire career of Breakbeat Era spanned about a year at the end of the last millennium. It was a unique collaboration between drum and bass producers Roni Size and DJ Die, fronted by captivating singer Leonie Laws. Their only album, Ultra-Obscene saw the light of day in 1999, peaking at #31 on the UK charts and, like pretty much every electronic album ever made, it barely registered in North America. Yet, to my mind, it remains not only one of the best drum’n'bass albums ever made, essential for anyone who finds Pendulum remotely interesting, but one of the all-time greatest electronic records in general. This video speaks for itself.
