First Spin: The Week’s Best New Dance Tracks From TroyBoi & Destructo, LP Giobbi & Kaleena Zanders & More

New music? We’ve got that too. Let’s dig in.

TroyBoi & Destructo, “You’re the One for Me”

Girl, we have been too cooped up in this house, and it’s time for some release. The vaccines are flowing, the sun is shining, and we need everybody to get back out there and roller disco. Thankfully, TroyBoi and Destructo are on that exact wavelength, dropping a synth sizzlin’ slice of neo-funk heaven. “You’re The One For Me” slides through your speakers with the poise and grace of a Studio 54 heart breaker. Dark robot vocals whisper sweet nothings into your ear, guiding you toward the light-up dance floor of your dreams.  It’s one of the perkiest things we’ve heard from either of these producers in years, with just a hint of that classically-chonky TroyBoi half-time at the end. “You’re The One For Me” is out on Destructo’s All My Friends label. Now, let’s all throw some glitter on our faces and have a freak out. — KAT BEIN

LP Giobbi feat. Kaleena Zanders, “Carry Us”

On her latest single, “Carry Us,” LP Giobbi takes hold of the temperature dial, turns that dial up all the way until it breaks and then just keeps cranking temps higher by sheer force of will until the entire production is hot to the touch and scorching to the ear holes. Giobbi’s signature piano house production here has tremendous urgency, with the track giving big peaktime energy from the jump and iron-lunged vocals from house vocalist phenom Kaleena Zanders hitting with maximum impact. With the track released in honor of Pride month, Zanders’ lyrics focus on unity, sister and brotherhood, carrying each other, climbing mountains and getting stronger.  “Watching her create, produce and write was a magical experience for me because it felt like it came from a place beyond this world,” Giobbi says of Zanders’ work on the track. “It pushed me to step up and meet her to try as best as I could to create a track from which her message could soar.” Honestly if you don’t feel at least a little bit more powerful after listening to this one, you might just want to play it over again. — KATIE BAIN
