Still in need of a soundtrack for your 4/20 adventures? Look no further– Disco Diaries has got you covered. Press play, light one up, and let yourself unwind.

Her – Quite Like
Quite Like is the debut track from Rennes-based duo, Her, and it definitely sets the tone for what is shaping up to be a successful career. A little bit of R&B, a little bit of pop, a whole lot of soul, and you’ve got the perfect addition to your baby-making playlist. There’s not much information circulating about Her quite yet, but I’d definitely keep up with them via SoundCloud here.

Nick Monaco – She Got That Fire (Jeremy Sole Remix) [Soul Clap]
Boasting a philosophy of “the weirder, the funkier, the better,” Nick Monaco has certainly established a name for himself in the underground music scene. Chicago-born DJ/producer Jeremy Sole has recently reproduced Monaco’s She Got That Fire, incorporating a more upbeat essence without foregoing the soulful foundation of the original. If you’re looking for more beats in this vein, tune in to Sole’s show on L.A.’s KCRW (89.9) every Wednesday at midnight. You can purchase Monaco’s appropriately-named Mating Call remix EP here.

Gypsy & The Cat feat. Paul Kelly – Climb Into The Music [Alsatian]
After a two year hiatus, Gypsy & The Cat have returned to us with the infectious Lost Control, and more recently, Climb Into The Music featuring Australian rock icon Paul Kelly. Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Xavier Bacash & Lionel Towers of Gypsy & The Cat have become connoisseurs of the indie/acoustic meets synth pop sound with tunes like these. Cop the single on iTunes here.

Junior & Baumon – Don’t Listen Much (Radio Version) [Gomma]
If you’re looking for something easy on the ears and soul, you’ve come to the right place. German songwriter Junior, otherwise known as Fabian Kalker, and Swedish Simone Baumon’s Don’t Listen Much is built on tropical bongos and uplifting chord progressions with Missouri-based Ian Fisher’s catchy bluegrass-style vocals on top. Catch it via Beatport here.

Marlon Roudette – When The Beat Drop Out (Kartell Remix)
From Don Diablo to Matoma and everything in between, we have heard endless renditions of Marlon Roudette’s When The Beat Drops Out. The latest received a special French touch courtesy of Kartell, Parisian producer and spearhead of the infamous Roche Musique label. Check out the rest of Kartell’s jams here.
