La la la Roux!

Good to hear La Roux back better than ever, I never took to La Roux straight away and it was the brilliant Skream remix of In For The Kill that swayed my ears to take notice. Then there was the Major Lazor reimagining of her debut Lazerproof which was a genius move that gave La Roux a dancehall make-over. I have no doubt that we’ll see plenty of remixes to come, giving a different take on her sophomore LP Trouble in Paradise.

Let Me Down Gently already possess the killer synth hooks and perfect pop delivery from La Roux. Bring it on.

Blanc et noir

Some nostalgic balearic-ness from French Philanthropist, singer, actor and intrapreneur Alain Fabien Maurice Marcel Delon. Original release of Comme au cinéma (Like at the Movies) hit the French charts in 1987, a piano led lounge-groover with Delon’s spoken word delivery and typical 80s saxophones swooning over balearic beats. Certainly adding a touch of Serge Gainsbourg to the mix.

Get your disco on, heard this in a bar the other night and I'd forgotten just how great this is. Patrice Rushen done some great tunes over the years.

Haven't You Heard was originally released on the 1979 LP Pizzazz (her second album for Elektra Records) and later as a single way back in 1980. Certainly one of her biggest hits after the perennial sampled track Forget Me Nots.

Sounds very Chic!

A welcome return for Washington duo Thievery Corporation with a new long player titled - Saudade - the name borrows its title from a Portuguese word meaning “a longing for something or someone that is lost, a contented melancholy, or, simply, the presence of absence.” 

A record devoted entirely to the Brazilian-born genre that first connected the duo. In a world cup year for Brazil, the country is attracting plenty of attention and the native music that inspires so much of the western world will be all around us in Europe this summer. Eric Hilton and Rob Garza have always been inspired by the Brazilian sound and this record showcases the beauty of it. Gentle sambas and bossa novas infused electronica with classy and sultry female vocalists. Oozing sunshine from every pore, perfect for late night chilling on a hot summers night watching fire-flies and sipping Caipirinha. 

Drawing influence from classic Brazilian performers like Antonio Carlos Jobim, Gal Costa, and Luis Bonfá—along with Serge Gainsbourg, Ennio Morricone, and more modern artists like electro-samba pioneer Isabelle AntenaSaudade achieves its delicate yet deeply sensuous sound with the help of more than a dozen guest musicians. With each track sung by one of five female vocalists (including longtime Thievery cohort LouLou Ghelichkhani, newcomer Elin Melgarejo, Nouvelle Vague singer Karina Zeviani, Argentine chanteuse Natalia Clavier, and former Bitter:Sweet singer/songwriter Shana Halligan), the endlessly mesmerizing album also features such guests as U.N.K.L.E. drummer Michael Lowery, Argentine singer/songwriter Federico Aubele, and master Brazilian percussionist Roberto Santos.

Wow, love this tune! Skanking beats and mega trumpets, what more do you need.

Magnetica is the first studio album from Quantic under his main solo moniker since An Announcement To Answer in 2006 He has, of course, been far from quiet in that time, with releases from many significant side-projects including The Quantic Soul Orchestra, Quantic and his Combo Bárbaro, Flowering Inferno, Quantic & Alice Russell, and Ondatrópica, and a host of thrilling live bands to match.

The Magnetica album i a truly exciting listen, taking in all the influences that trailblazing troubadour Will Holland has soaked up from his travels - including the last seven years spent living in Colombia - and collaborations with musicians from Latin America, Africa, the Caribbean and beyond; blended with the innate talent for trend-setting electronic club music that has always made him one to watch.

The eclectic array of guests to appear on the Magnetica album also includes Alice Russell, Shinehead, Nidia Góngora, Dereb The Ambassador, Thalma De Freitas and Anibal Velásquez.

Turn it up!

J'ai peur des filles is a funny little song that reminds of Bertrand Burgalat's early pop records, taken from Benoit Carre's 2013 LP Célibatorium. The LP also has a nice duet with Isabelle Carré on En commun.

Maybe I'm just listening to to much French radio!
