This Is Our Jam: Mount Kimbie, Mikky Ekko, & More

This week, it's all about synthesizers. We have a slick new track from Brooklyn's Xeno & Oaklander, an awesome collaboration from London's Mount Kimbie, and the newest "rough demo" from up-and-coming singer Mikky Echo. Our favorite, though, is a cut from Johnny Jewel's Mirage project taken from the just-released super-awesome Italians Do It Better 2 compilation. At nearly 10 minutes of vocoder-saturated pop, it's uniquely awesome.

Escort
"Barbarians"
NYC's Escort has been kicking around for years now, but "Barbarians" is a great place to start if you're new to the disco outfit's oeuvre. With a huge, willfully retro chorus, it's a funk-leaning tune that would have been pure gold on the light-up dance floors of yore.

"On Your Side (Feat. How to Dress Well)"
How to Dress Well may be best known for his own inward-leaning R&B, but as it turns out, he makes for one a hell of a hook on a dance track, too. Case in point: Jacques Greene's wonderfully understated new track "On Your Side," which uses Tom Krell's falsetto to absolute perfection.
