A few treats were in my inbox this morning. First, a couple remixes from favorite Australian label Modular. This comes via an Urbn blog feature on Modular which is a good way to get familiar with their artists if you aren't yet or get more excited for Muscles' first full length coming in October. Read bios and see videos all in one cute little flash interface. Plus, they've got a couple remixes of Ice Cream (both the NYPC and Muscles variety) for dl. Don't be misled when they call it a sampler, it's just these two.

Second, a new free and legal single from Club 8! It's so good to hear something new from these guys. Plus the cover art feeds my 70s summer park music fetish, which I may have mentioned before and will surely mention again. This comes via Swedish label Labrador.
"Heaven" introduces a hint of Brasilian carnivals with a mix of euphoria and melancholica, percussion grooves and a lyrical death theme. And of course, melodies to die for. Heavenly indeed!mp3: Club 8 - Heaven
