Chris Malinchak "So Into You"
Undoubtedly a man who's seen his touring schedule swell thanks to the certifiable summer hit "So Good To Me," feel-good house producer Chris Malinchak caught a seasonal second wind on the blogs this week. Teasing his forthcoming single "If U Got It," Malinchak let go of "So Into You" for free. Grooving at a smooth midtempo with pulsing chords and late '80s disco-boogie-meets-synth-pop sheen, the track samples The System's "Don't Disturb the Groove," which might mean that he couldn't get the track cleared. Either way, its arrival for the final official weekend of summer without a price tag will likely have this set starter in the forefront of a few DJs digi-crates.

Gravious "Rolling Thunder" (Octo Octa remix) — Halocyan Records
Shifting from poolside house to slinky late-night broken bass music, Glaswegian Gravious gets the hype machine going for his new Rolling Thunder EP for L.A.'s Halocyan. A label that's popped up on the Dialogue Inc. radar quite a few times this year, Halocyan has demonstrated an uncompromising style when it comes to releasing cutting edge bass and techno. Gravious's latest is no exception, and this remix from Brooklyn's Octo Octa, which settles the original with additional key work, warm progressions, and a hint of house, might actually be the stand out cut of the EP.

Ciara "Body Part" + "Sorry" (Jacques Greene remixes)
Sliding into a cool middle ground between these other two entries, Canada's Jacques Greene furthers his reputation for next level future R&B with two re-rubs of Ciara that hearken back to his stand-out remix of Kelly Rowland's "Motivation." His take on "Body Party" pairs Ciara's sweet soul with a piercing synths, a hyper shuffle, and well-placed static. "Sorry" works more subtly, as Greene's padded two-step skip marries perfectly with what would otherwise be a too-sweet R&B ballad.
