Producer Chris Malinchak, who currently resides in NYC, makes the sort of music reminiscent of the time in the '90s when house was finding its way into pop music and onto the charts. And Chris is cracking some charts of his own, with his new single "So Good To Me." The track hit #2 in the UK Top 40 Singles and the UK Top 40 Dance Singles, only losing out to Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" in both categories. Not that chart positions necessarily determine a song's worth, but from the appeal of this song it's pretty easy to see why it's getting so much love, and similarly to fellow house revivalists Disclosure, it's not without its arty ambitions either. Check out the song below.
Chris played NYC a few times this year, and though he doesn't have any upcoming shows in the city scheduled at the moment, he will be playing in the area when he appears at Camp Bisco which goes down from July 11 to 13 at Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, NY. So if you're going to that festival, it'd be worth catching his set. He's part of a diverse lineup which includes names like Passion Pit, Killer Mike, El-P, Bondax, Baauer, Animal Collective, Danny Brown, RL Grime, and more. Tickets for the festival are on sale now. It's Chris Malinchak's only announced date at the moment.

Squarepusher is coming to the NYC-area for Camp Bisco, which goes down this year from July 11 to 13 at the Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, NY with Passion Pit, Animal Collective, Toro y Moi, El-P & Killer Mike, Baauer, Ryan Hemsworth, Dan Deacon, Danny Brown, and more. Right before that though, Squarepusher will play his own show in NYC at Le Poisson Rouge on July 9. It's a much more intimate show than his 2012 show at Terminal 5, and tickets for it go on sale Friday (5/3) at 10 AM with a LPR member presale starting Thursday (5/2) at 10 AM.
