By: Sarah Polonsky / September 19, 2014

Kick the weekend off with these recent dance music releases, curated by DJ, producer and vocalist Lea Luna.

1. Duke Dumont- “I Got You” feat. Jax Jones
This song and video are full of feel-good warmth. Plug in to this hedonistic point of view (literal POV) from Duke Dumont that will take you to another place with the smooth voice of Jax Jones.

2. Josh Butler & Bontan feat. Josh Barry- “We Found a Place”
If you’ve been virtual crate-digging for classy house music for the weekend, you’ve found the right place. A deep, sexy house groove courtesy of the skillful pairing of Josh Butler and Bontan graced with a soulful vocal by Josh Barry is the perfect selection for house-hungry DJs who want to see some positive movement on the dancefloor.

3. Sander van Doorn & Oliver Heldens- “This”
Young deep house sensation Oliver Heldens has outdone himself this time by teaming up with EDM superstar Sander van Doorn. This collaboration of two huge artists would lead their massive crowds and critics alike to start a guessing-game of what the outcome may be for the EDM subgenre with the launch of this project, but the verdict is exceeds expectation. Feast your ears on the biggest big-room tech house production you could have ever imagined from either of them, “This.”

4. Benny Page- “Champion Sound” ft. Assassin (North Base remix)
For those tried and true DnB fans, here is a new one from North Base that has a bombastic classic ragga feel and some wicked amen drum magic to get your weekend groove rolling.

5. HavocNdeed feat. Cutty Ranks- “Drop It”
Get your twerk game up with this new video from HavocNdeed, which is bottom heavy in every sense of the term. Drop it!

6. MC Flipside, Dustin Hulton, and Stef Cima- “Night Sky”
Breakbeats and lyrical precision mix like fuel and fire in “Night Sky,” the new explosive hit that features the unmistakable flow of MC Flipside back-to-back with the rhymes of microphone maven Stef Cima.

7. The Knocks- “Classic” feat. Powers
“Classic” has a bit of flashback disco feel in the beat and a cheeky retro look in the video that will capture the last few drops of summer before that empty umbrella drink ruins your mood. Powers is a knockout on this track for dancefloor powerhouse duo The Knocks.

8. Michael Calfan- “Prelude”
Of the many piano house compositions there are out there, this is one of the most danceworthy. The marriage of piano chords, vocal chops, house beats, and progressive tones are well-rounded and elegant without any unnecessary fluff.

9. Rusko- “!” (Volume 2)
No question (or question marks) about it, Rusko’s new EP entitled “!” (Volume 2) is genre-bent sonic heaven with touches of jazz, drum and bass, breaks, glitch, R&B, and brilliant strokes of originality all throughout it.

10. Super8 & Tab feat. Julie Thompson- “Let Go”
Soft, sweet, therapeutic, trance vibes will emanate from the speakers when you press play on this one. Above and Beyond named it their record of the week on Group Therapy, and if you’re into lovey-dovey music, you’ll make this yours too.
