If you haven’t heard the name Cleopold thus far, you can expect to get familiar very soon. The Australian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has collaborated with the some of the finest musicians in the game and continues to grow his personal fanbase with groovy beats and a distinct vocal style that you can’t help but sing along to.

After lending his outstanding vocals to Cassian’s Running and Miami Horror’s Love Like Mine, Cleopold unleashed his debut single as an independent artist on June 30. Immediately picked up by Chet Faker’s Detail Co. record label, Down in Flames is an undeniable manifestation of Cleopold’s emerging talent. When he returns from his current tour alongside Miami Horror, fans can look forward to more Chet-Faker approved Cleopold tunes.

Today, Cleopold gives us a sneak peak into his well-rounded music library, curating a Disco Diaries playlist perfectly fit for a Monday afternoon pick-me-up. Press play, delve into his commentary below, and enjoy the rest of Cleopold’s jams here.

andhim – Hausch [Get Physical]
This track screams summer and makes me want to drive with the windows down or hire a segway at Venice Beach.

Bag Raiders – Wonderland
I love this track. The singer sounds like Michael McDonald, and the lead hook really complements a most excellent pre-chorus.

Mr. Oizo – iSOAP [Brainfeeder]
Offensive tones and booze-y guitar… a winning combination that inspires me to spend more time playing instruments and less time in front of the computer.

Mike Mareen – Dancing In The Dark (Galactica-Remix)
A party thumper that makes me want to turn up. Hold out for the drum break at 2:40–not to be missed.

Miami Horror feat. Aaron Miller & Gavin Turek – Cellophane (So Cruel) [Haven Sounds/Dine Alone]
I look forward to hearing this tune in a live setting. Their drummer Kosta really takes it to another level.
