CHF x HOW TO LOOT BRAZIL – “Dirty Kicks Dirty Claps”
French electronic producer CHF returns with another single, “Dirty Kicks Dirty Claps”. Collaborating with Germany’s HOW TO LOOT BRAZIL, the two made a simple-yet-catchy piece of pop-inflected dance music.

Adam Cotier x Josh Parkinson x Blaise – “Back To Reality”
Three dance music heavyweights Adam Cotier, Josh Parkinson and Blaise joined forces for a new song that celebrates (and raises money for) for UK’s National Health Service (NHS) and its workers in the frontline against COVID-19. Named “Back To Reality”, the track samples Soul II Soul’s classic, “Back To Life”. Adam says: “I came up with the idea of using the ‘Back to life, back to reality’ sample on a track whilst pondering thoughts during self-isolation, and at the same time reading into the lack of support received by the NHS and front-line staff and wondering how I could help.”
