Peaches – “Bodyline” (ft. Nick Zinner)
Last month Peaches announced her fifth studio album entitled Rub, was coming out in September and released the video to her first single, “Light In Places“. The video is pretty literal to the song’s title and features a trapeze artist with a light shooting out of her vaginal area (it’s not suuuuper graphic but it’s probably NSFW. I know you probably can’t resist checking it out a little, so satisfy your curiosity here.
In other words, longtime fans need not worry, Peaches has not lost her edge or her appetite for lasciviousness. A quick perusal of the album’s song titles will confirm this as fact.
To tide you over until Rub’s, um…release, we got a new non-album single from Peaches courtesy of the Adult Swim Singles series. It’s called “Bodyline” and features Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Peaches in prime electro-punk form.
This is the fourth year of the Adult Swim Singles series, with new singles released (for free) every week. Already this summer, they’ve put up tracks by Cherry Glazerr, D∆WN, and Owen Pallett, with releases coming up in the next 10 weeks from the likes of Flying Lotus, DOOMSTARKS (MF DOOM & Ghostface), Run The Jewels, and Danny Brown, so you would be well advised to go ahead and bookmark them or deal with suffering from FOMO.
Boys Noize x Salva – “Choo Choo”
I’ve been rocking this new track by Boys Noize and Salva for a couple weeks now, with no end in sight.
“Choo Choo” is a festival-ready, twerk-inducing banger that borrows its main sample from a song by an artist named Scarlet Fever on her debut (and only?) single, “Peanut Butter”
“Choo Choo” is available as a free download by going here agreeing to follow Boys Noize on SoundCloud. It’s worth it – just do it.
And, oh by the way, you can check out Boys Noize performing this Sunday at Hard Summer in Pomona.
VA – NAAFI Pirata 2
The Mexico City-based label / club night, NAAFI, has been making some noise in underground circles for a minute now.
Blending contemporary Mexican and Latin flavors with American hip hop, and bass-heavy productions, NAAFI have a sonic aesthetic that’s completely unique, while traveling on a similar nebulous wavelength as LA’s Fade To Mind crew.
Pirata 2 collects 21 edits and remixes by the NAAFI crew and touches on elements from reggaeton to trance and everything in between.
I’m particularly fond of this Zutzut blend of Puerto Rican rapper Yaviah’s “En La Mia” and the beat for Nicki Minaj‘s “Truffle Butter”

Rustie – “Bronie” / “Big Catzz”
Glaswegian maximalist, Rustie produced one of my favorite tracks of 2014 but had been fairly quiet in 2015 up until recently.
Word is, his remix of Ginuwine’s all time classic, “Pony” was commissioned then rejected for the new Magic Mike movie, but you can check that out here.
Yesterday, he posted a tweaked version of that remix on his soundcloud page.
And if you ever wondered what it would be like to be in TRON *on speed*, you can do that with another of Rustie’s new tracks, “Big Catzz“.
