Music Monday: Francis Mercier x Nitefreak x Lenny Auguste, Curbi, The Nervous Eaters, Baby Got Back Talk, and Ray Volpe

Producer Francis Mercier, whose song ‘Sete’ with Blond:ish and Amadou & Mariam is one of the breakout dancefloor hits of the year, reaching #2 on Beatport, is back with another banger. This time, Mercier teams up with Zimbabwe’s Afro-house king Nitefreak, and introduces newcomer Lenny Auguste, a singer from the historic city of Gonaives where Haiti’s independence was first declared in 1804. The lyrics, sung in Haitian Creole, are a heartfelt plea for freedom and hope, and a defiant demand for social justice, amid the ongoing troubles in Haiti.

Following the release of Nytrix and Kiesza’s cyberpop single comes the remix from UK DJ/producer Curbi. With his take on “One More Time,” Curbi’s remix delivers an impressive Bass House twist on Kiesza & Nytrix’s single “One More Time.”

Pioneering Boston punk band The Nervous Eaters, contemporaries of bands like the Ramones, The Police, Iggy Pop, The Pretenders, and a host of others, has released a new single, “Wild Eyes,” ahead of a new album due out this fall on Little Steven Van Zandt’s Wicked Cool Records.

New school pop punkers Baby Got Back Talk dropped their latest single/video “Model Minority” off their upcoming Wiretap Records debut EP, ‘Existential Shred’, due out September 9.

Ray Volpe’s intergalactic planetary smash single and the most played track at EDC Las Vegas, “Laserbeam,” has finally been blasted out worldwide via Disciple Records. Volpe strikes out with a track that’s a true shock to the system, packing booming bass and acidic squelches contrasting with an underlying calm that makes for the perfect festival season blockbuster.
