Dear readers, from Sweden especially or even from the Stockholm area. We've just got the nice opportunity to give our readers of Tracasseur the chance to win tickets to go and dance to Todd Terje, when he will be doing an unique live-gig...Show More Summary
Every year we do it. This year will be no exception, even if we've been having a really off year as music bloggers. We still are music lovers though. A lot of music have passed through our ears in 2015 and the least we could do was to compile the best of them into a list for you guys out there. Show More Summary
Got a tip the other day from a friend knowing a guy that was about to release his second EP. It sounded interesting when he told me about his music and then I forgot about my friends chat conversation. But my friend reminded me yesterday and I took a listen to Utropstech. Show More Summary
Awesome Aussies #2: Kids At Midnight's new single "Survival" reminds me of another bunch of talented women; the Haim sisters. It also shows Jane's versatility that she can make utterly danceable house and disco tunes in addition to this dreamier and more delicate sound. Just such a beautiful song!
Awesome aussies #1: Matt Van Schie has teamed up with Van She colleague Michael Di Francesco to make this dreamy synthpop/tropical/nu disco gem under the name Tear Council. It's just as awesome as you'd expect from the pair.
The upcoming Friend Within EP (out 15 March on He Loves You) seems to be of the usual high quality that we've come to expect from our friend. At least judging by this acid weapon.
If you have plans painting the town red tonight this tune will definitely help you get into the spirit. Kiwi/Aussie house duo Terace has updated Modjo's 2000 classic Lady (Hear Me Tonight). It's still as catchy as the original, but with a bouncier beat and deeper bass. Best thing is that it's available for free download on thei Facebook page!
Wow, we're really pounding out these Guest tapes, aren't we? Since we, and especially me, really like the UK sound so much, what could be more logical than to ask a German with a French name to do the next one? Hannover DJ and producer...Show More Summary
British nu disco/French house veteran Louis La Roche is out with a new ep on Mike Mago's BMKLTSCH label. Cool combo since Louis haven't really dived into the deep or UK house trends that Mago use to release on his label, and this ep is much more nu disco than usual BMKLTSCH releases. Show More Summary
I always call Dan Lissvik a mastermind and he always proves me right calling him so. This time he got a new EP coming out February 9 on Smalltown Supersound in his own name. If the other track (and maybe the intro is awesome too) are as good as "Airwalk" we're all in for a treat. Show More Summary
French deep house producer The Avener released his debut album "The Wanderings Of The Avener" in France a couple of days ago. Unfortunately rest of Europe has to wait until February 23 to be able to buy the album.The Avener released "Fade Out Lines" last year and it was a tremendous tune. Show More Summary
If you compare house music to another umpbrella genre like jazz music (which house obviously is pretty closely related to), you'll see that both genres have a lot of sub genres depending on stuff like where and when it's conceived, what...Show More Summary

You know, there are people like Doctors Without Borders helping Ebola victims in Western Africa, people like Malala who risks her life fighting for girls' right to education in Afghanistan, women giving birth and such like. But noneShow More Summary
2014 has come to an end. So it's time for the highlight of the year when we give you our personal top 20 tracks along with the Spotify Best of list (will be out in 1–2 weeks after this post).My year in music has partly been that we all three at Tracasseur have had a lot in our personal lives that has made the blog more calm the last months.

London duo Dorsia not only make great music, including remixes of disco classics, they're generous at Christmas time too. Just take a peek at this neatly packed Christmas gift! Follow Dorsia on Soundcloud, Facebook, and Twitter.
A quick happy birthday to our buddy Pat Lok, who's had his excellent "Could be Mine" featuring Patrick Baker remixed by Red Milk, Chores and Wantigga (the latter two are free downloads). Great stuff all around, but I gotta say that the Chores remix is the fave.
We've been super lazy recently, but I can calm everyone down: the rumours about our deaths are greately exaggerated. On the contrary, we're working on some big things that may or may not include a range of Tracasseur speedos for men.But...Show More Summary
More old friends and more free downloads! This time Justin Faust have remixed Goldroom's upocoming single Till Sunrise, featuring Mammals on vocals. Actually, remix isn't really the appropriate term, since Josh Goldroom has come up with a pretty neat idea. Show More Summary
Some new stuff from longtime friend Final DJs. We know Basti spent a lot of time on We Are The Night, and the result is a catchy piece of nu disco that instantly will make you want to dance. Great vocals from Torontonian Dana Jean Phoenix don't make it any worse. And to top it off, Basti is giving it away for free! All you have to do is head over to the Final DJs Facebook page.
