Active Child featuring Mikky Ekko, “Subtle”: Pat Grossi, a.k.a. Active Child, has announced a new six-track EP, The Rapor, his first release since 2011’s You Are All I See. The EP, out October 22nd on Vagrant Records, features Ellie Goulding and Mikky Ekko, who briefly channels Roxette on the ’80s-centric “Subtle.”
Cut Copy, “Free Your Mind”: The follow-up to Cut Copy’s Grammy-nominated Zonoscope was apparently inspired by the two “Summers of Love,” sparked by Vietnam in the ’60s and the Thatcher era in the ’80s. Which makes the title of Free Your Mind, out November 5th, pretty apt. Check out the title track below:

Tessela, “Nancy’s Pantry”: The latest from U.K. beatmaker Tessela (a.k.a. Ed Russell) is all kinds of crazy good. Turns out Nancy’s pantry is stocked with some wicked breakbeats, low bass, and smooth synths. Tessela’s debut EP of the same name is out October 8th.
Goldroom, “Embrace”: Goldroom’s “Embrace” is a collaboration between L.A. producer Josh Legg and singer Ariela Jacobs, whose radio-ready pop vocal meshes perfectly with Legg’s lush synths and pulsing rhythms.
