its crazy to think it was almost a decade ago that Less Than Human was released. “Give Me Every Little Thing" is a 21st century club classic that to me is just as important as "Disco Infiltrator”. The Juan Maclean will release their third full-length In A Dream on September 16th through DFA Records. “A Place Called Space” is an 8 1/2 minute mind-bender that takes you through a sinister universe of Hologram fight scenes. Hell Yeah!

Enigmatic Swedish Duo JJ released one of my favorite records a few years ago. On August 19th they will return with their latest full-length titled V. “All White Everything” is a meditative ballad that is more somber than tropical. Yet i still wouldn’t have an issue pairing this with Deep Forest or any of the Light In the Attic treasures.

The Fresh & Onlys released their fifth album House of Spirits last month on Mexican Summer.

Toss on your shades and head down to the pier for the annual tether-ball tournament. If that knucklehead Chet appears, you better own up and show everyone who the true boss is. But hurry up though… You gotta meet up with turtle and the gang for a chill sesh in the arboretum. If Sasha shows up, pass her the note that you’ve been hiding for a month now. You wanna make sure you spill your heart out on a nice day. If she asks you who you really are… Tell her the truth. You are a Timecop from 1983.
