Having already released a couple of promising EPs, "Embrace", the first album of Keep Dancing Inc, was just published last October. "Start up Nation", its opening song, is a fantastic way to get yourself introduced to the synth-powered and groove-loaded universe of this French trio. We must say though that if someone had told us they were from the UK, we would have definitely believed that. They are the kind of band you could surely enjoy at a festival without necessarily being familiar with any of their songs.

What could happen if two musicians met virtually and decided to collaborate? Without even meeting in "real life", Steps and Mita –whose real identities haven't been revealed– joined strengths during these pandemic times to create and release such slenderly easy going tunes. And the truth is that, despite having just released a couple of singles so far, it's enough to become mesmerised by their music. But we certainly want to hear more from them. Virtually-conceived delightful music all the way from Manila that you should keep in the spotlight!

Powerful melodies, breathtaking pauses and quite a walking-on-ice finesse in contrast to harder electronic brushstrokes. Beats and dance moves have a main weight in "Frosid sólarlag", her first collab. The young composer, who defines gugusar as her alter ego, has a stunning future ahead, specially on live shows. Her debut LP, “Listen To This Twice” is filled with catchy pop and keys and some whispering ballads like "If you Wanna Go".

Leading you to a psychodelic journey to the east, Mong Tong's "Mystery" LP embraces a wide sound spectrum and succeeds in unearthing ancient mysticities that were long forgotten. After some time in the rock music field, they came together to experiment with the sounds from Taiwan and lift the eastern spirits through percussion, riffs and keys inspired by faraway lands and the 80s vibes. They went straight ahead from a mix of loops, cinema and book references to instrument multitasking and producing. We're in love with their collage-like narrativity.

What do you look for in the music you listen to? What about deconstructing the dance music homogeneity with Jokkoo first mixtape proposals? Maguette Dieng, Baba Sy and Ikram Bouloum are some of the members from Jokkoo, the afrofuturistic electronic collective based in Barcelona. Their own club events and their monthly program in Dublab.es gathers disciplines and artists that deejay to make gqom and afro disco more visible. Futuristic encounters between technology and pan-african beats with hybrid crossovers, thick and appealing aggressive sequences.

The maturity of a long life musician and the master and delicacy of an experienced writer meet in Moon Panda, and they become sound authors, suceeding in making the listener reach an inner peace and sensitivity hard to find. "Make Well" EP leaves you speechless while carrying you away to a sea sunset filled with pastel hues; a dream pop meca. It is realistic to acknowledge that the fantastic graphic design by Maria Medem might have something to do with it, though. We’d be willing to listen everything they’ve ever composed and to deepen into this spacey string timeless nature.
