In celebration of their weekly DJ residency at hot new Leeds electro club night Nailgun, HEADS WE DANCE release a crunchin’ five minute space-disco synth workout titled “The Human Touch” on Monday 24th November. Part 8-bit medly, part grinding monster the latest from HWD should turn the party into furious ball of goo.
Backed by the remastered live favourite, and recent Popjustice Song of the Day, “You Are Never Alone With Model 21″ and mixed by Grammy-winning mix engineer Simon Gogerly (U2, New Order, Gwen Stefani), “The Human Touch” highlights HEADS WE DANCE‘s exciting crossover between melodic, dance-influenced pop and futuristic dancefloor-fillers. The b-side is both eerie and soothing and somewhat reminiscent of mid nineties Erasure.
The single will be available on extremely limited 12″ and as a digital download through www.myspace.com/headswedance, with stunning sleeve art by Empire (Miami Horror, Charlie Fanclub) and exclusive remixes by Sidechains, Charlie Fanclub (Work It Baby), Louis La Roche and NeOn.

Not sure if you’ve seen what’s coming down the pipes from the FABRIC team. If not, pay close attention because the latest releases are killing it! FREQ NASTY tears up FABRICLIVE 42 with an hour of fidgity grimey breaks and sleazey electro steez albeit with a bit of a mixed message. The mix starts with Saul Williams’ political powerhouse “Not In Our Name” which progresses quickly into a booty knockin party poppin bass heavy jam. Who am I to say you can’t fight and party at the same time?
The mix from Morgan Geist and Darshan Jesrani (aka METRO AREA) on Fabric 43 is a different pace altogether – this is a 23-track journey into disco, funk, and late night grooves. It takes listeners through the duo’s vast and brightly coloured record collection, all dazzling and sparkling and uplifting and ever so infectuous.

I was literally writing an email to a long time friend about how ravey dance music is lately. As I typed the sentiments above to my raving homey “We Run” interupted me with its chorus of filters. The breakdown on the track is a bit long, but it’s progressive enough to net any salmon dancers or otherwise into a sweaty pond of ecstacy and sunshine.
MP3: Melnyk – We Run (Original mix)
The new LP is the follow up to the critically acclaimed debut Silence. Between recording the new album, MELNYK has also been busy producing for the likes of Pet Shop Boys, Louie Austen, My Robot Friend and Temposhark.
The album has ten brand new tracks and featuring vocals from Sebastian Muravchik from the italodisco group Heartbreak, along with contributions from Temposhark and labelmates Sara Berg and Ebb. The first single will be the title track “Revolutions”. A blend of disco, eletro and pop – featuring Muravchik’s trademark vocal delivery. The EP includes electrodisco mixes by Thugfucker and Artego (Blendbrank).
Check out MELNYK and the new album Revolutions which will be available on limited edition compact discs in numbered sleeves – through selected retailers including the Gaymonkey Shop. The album will also be released as a download (with digital booklet via iTunes) worldwide on the 22nd of September.
