Listen: Jagwar Ma - Uncertainty (Cut Copy Remix)

The Cut Copy boys remix fellow Australians Jagwar Ma, stretching their latest single 'Uncertainty' into a jacking intergalactic sparkle. A winning combination. You could argue that both acts see eye to eye with 'Free Your Mind' and 'Howlin' finding common ground in their marriage of psychedelia and dance music, paying homage to the Madchester scene.

Recommends: Black Vanilla - Boiler Room

Rewinding Boiler Room's recent visit to Sydney where they filmed some live sweat from Black Vanilla, the combination of Marcus Whale (Collarbones), Lavurn Lee (Guerre, Cassius Select) and Jarred Beeler (Marseilles). Crude boot-rattling garage productions and dual vocal RnB chemistry, sassed up like Prince's deleted 'Black Album'. No mindless knob twitching to view here, just serious crowd hyping (damn Marcus can move). If you like what you see and see what you like, waste no more minutes and download their free mixtape.

Recommends: Tiger & Woods - Winter Fitness Mix

Recommends: Tiger & Woods - Winter Fitness Mix

Working on our holiday bodies with this energising mix from Tiger & Woods, in preparation for their appearance at FOR Festival. Flying under the aliases of Larry Tiger and David Wood, these two mysterious Italians weave their own brand of boogie, house and compressed funk. They'll be jamming their feel good music live under the heavenly Hvar skies, looping disco samples and backbone strapping baselines.

Recommends: Daniel Wang

Recommends: Daniel Wang

While it's likely you've grooved to Daniel Wang without realising, be it to one of his own productions such as Like Some Dream or Free Lovin' (below) or something released via his Balihu label, the best place to experience the Berlin via New York via San Fran disco mastermind is of course on the floor. Few DJ's manage to bring the level of enthusiasm and joy to the booth that Wang turns up with, and the gentleman is an absolute wealth of musical, lingual, botanical and culinary knowledge to boot. Try his Beats In Space for an audio only introduction, and/or his Red Bull Music Academy lecture from Melbourne in 2006 if you'd like a dance lesson to go with it.

Daniel will be soundtracking the dream sequence at FOR Festival in Hvar with DJ heroes Maurice Fulton, Storm Queen, Mark Ronson, Psychemagik, Erol Alkan, Tiger and Woods, Fort Romeau, Baio, Bok Bok, Tensnake and Ghost Culture, alongside an epic lineup of live acts. Individual day tickets go on sale tomorrow!

Watch: Klaxons - There Is No Other Time

Klaxons released a new single earlier this year, the Radio 1 play-listed There Is No Other Time, and we just got the fancy new video for it. Georgia Hudson (Midlake, MØ) stepped up to the director's spot to create the nightclub meets scenic dream-scape clip! We like it.
