Carla Marie Williams appears on Crookers' new single "Put Your Hands On Me". Carla-Marie is a Xenomania songwriter - she has co-written songs for Girls Aloud and Alesha Dixon and sings on Pet Shop Boys' "The Way It Used To Be".

She contributes with guest vocals on Crookers' "Put Your Hands On Me", along with rapper Kardinal Offishall. The single will be released on October 5th, on Southern Fried Records - you can listen to a clip of the song here.

"Put Your Hands On Me" is the first single to be taken from Crookers' debut album Tons Of Friends, out in January 2010. Other collaborators on the album include Kelis, Soulwax, Major Lazer, RadioClit, Spank Rock, Pitbull, Tim Burgess and Róisín Murphy.

Xenomania collaborator Fred Falke has been putting out another series of highly-acclaimed remixes. Falke's remixes are being praised for being breezy, soaring and dancefloor-ready, sounding a whole lot better than their original form.

Falke has recently remixed songs from Mike Snow, La Roux, Example and Miami Horror. He has also released a solo EP titled Chicago - you can buy it on Beatport.

Listen to some of his recent work:

Miami Horror - Make You Mine (Fred Falke Remix)
Example - Watch The Sun Come Up (Fred Falke Remix)
La Roux - Bulletproof (Fred Falke Remix)
Fred Falke - Chicago (Feat. Teff Balmert)
Fred Falke - Back To Stay

Sacha Collison's latest project is out now. The Unclubbed album is a collection of stripped back, acoustic covers of classic house tracks.

The album features covers of hits like Moloko's "Sing It Back", Deee-Lite’s "Groove Is In The Heart", "Missing" by Everything But The Girl, "You Don't Know Me" by Armand Van Helden, iiO's "Rapture", and many more. The songs are re-sung, rearranged and reinvented, performed by vocalists such as Katherine Ellis, Abigail Bailey, Rosie Gaines, Roachford, Sam Obernik, Sweet Female Attitude and more.

Unclubbed includes 14 covers, a few original interludes and a version of Sacha Collisson's own track "Mezmerized". You can stream the album here.
