Discodeine Ft Jarvis Cocker - Synchronize + Album

Discodeine feat. Jarvis Cocker - Synchronize from Pschent on Vimeo.

Discodeine is the brainchild of Parisian producers Pentile and Pilooski (one of the Modern Masters of the edit best known for his notorious reworking of Frankie Valli's Beggin' and the Dirty Edits series). Their single Synchronize, featuring all round good egg and ex-Pulp lead singer Jarvis Cocker and a huge dollop of disco goodness, was one of the records of 2010 in my humble opinione.

They're back with a splendidly esoteric self-titled full long player, featuring Synchronize and and the similarly excellent Singular.

Hercules & Love Affair - My House (Original & Leo Zero Mixes)

After their fantastic 2008 self-titled debut, it's been a long old wait for a new album from Andy Butler & co. but it looks like it's been worth it. First single My House has a slightly deeper house sound which bodes very well for 2nd LP Blue Songs.  The accompanying video has just been released and it's a splendid late 80s/90s TV dance show pastiche. Leo Zero has also done a nice 90s inspired remix, too,  which should hopefully get a full release.

Blue Songs will be released through Moshi Moshi records on 31st January.

The My House video is available to view exclusively on the Guardian's website .
