DrDr - Addicted (Polkadot Remix) (Hype 0325R)

Champion Records drop a nice dubby speed garage type track from DrDr. The Polkadot remix strips down Addicted into a bouncy affair.

Stranglers - Mercury Rising (Hype 0323)

Single taken from the Stranglers latest album Giants to be released in North America in May. The Stranglers stop by Danforth Music Hall on May 31, 2013 in support of the new album. The band is for much the same band that was chugging it out back in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Only member who is missing is Hugh Cornwall who left in the early nineties to do solo stuff and never returned. Nice track!!!!

Club 8 - Stop Taking My Time (Hype 0322)

Interesting marketing ploy by Labrador Records by only releasing a snippet of Club 8's new single. 30 seconds is all that is needed to confirm another fantastic pop track from the band.
