Toronto-based Austra’s Habitat, a brand-new four-track EP, is out now on iTunes and available on vinyl via Domino (Rest of the World) / Paper Bag (Canada).

“’Habitat’ is an old song that we’ve waited almost three years to release,” says the band’s Katie Stelmanis. “It didn’t seem to fit with the sounds of Feel it Break or Olympia, so we decided to finally put it out as a single along with 3 new instrumental tracks. There’s a lot of live versions of the song online but people have always pressed us to make a proper recording, so we are especially excited to announce these limited-edition physical copies of the EP. It’s a euro-style computer music experiment produced with love from me, Maya, and Dorian.”

Gilles Peterson‘s extraordinary new record is an incredible journey through the different flavours of authentic Brazilian music culture, from its majestic heritage to its super-dynamic present. Gilles turned producer for this ambitious venture, setting up camp in Rio de Janeiro with young UK production associates Sam Shepherd (Floating Points); Dilip Harris and Rob Gallagher from 2 Banks of 4; and Kassin from Rio collective Orquestra Imperial. Together they set about recording all-new material with a stellar line-up of Brazilian talent, under the name Sonzeira. The result is an inspirational portrait of a nation in sound. At its heart are mesmerizing vocal performances from superstars young and old, including City of God actor and singer Seu Jorge, and the grande dame of samba, 76-year-old powerhouse Elza Soares. Sonzeira‘s Brasil Bam Bam Bam is out now (via iTunes).

Company Freak, the dance music supergroup that features a rotating group of legendary singers and musicians, has just released its debut EP, Le Disco Social (out now on iTunes). Comprised of seven retro-futuristic tracks, the EP is a throwback to 1970s orchestral disco soul yet presents a modern, electronic flair being compared to Daft Punk. Songs include “Sexaholic,” an orchestral synth-funk/electro boogie track with vocals by Tony-nominated Broadway star Vivian Reed; “Andre Leon Talley,” a dance-floor anthem that pays tribute to the fashion icon while celebrating individualism and self-pride; and a provocative remake of Sylvester‘s “Do Ya Wanna Funk.”

Having risen through the scene with a clutch of sub-heavy house tracks, elusive UK producer Route 94 releases “My Love” on April 8th in the US.

A heady piano four-four smash offset with the infectious vocals courtesy of new talent Jess Glynne, “My Love” recently debuted at #1 in the UK, and is currently holding strong in the Top 5.
