Listen to the waves

Beautiful tropical vibes of Alina Baraz & Galimatias, this is so chilled it begs for a warm climate and a white sandy beach. Listening to it in the middle of the winter certainly warms you up. I’ll have to save this one up for next summer!

Fantasy is taken from the duo's forthcoming joint EP Urban Flora.

Retro Voyage

This tune sounds like David Byrne fronting a Soft Cell record in 1985. But it’s 2014 and this is LA duo Sean Guerin and Isaac Franco know as De Lux. I first heard this band when they covered fellow label mates Classixx around the start of this year.

kinda like what Hot Chip would sound like if they came out in 1985, but with a polished production this sounds fresh! New LP Voyage out now.

Why you wanna go and do that?

Love this electronic pop song from Les Sins aka Chaz Bundick aka Toro y Moi.

Very easy on the ear and is undoubtably one of the stand out tunes on the debut Les Sins LP Michael.

Why, featuring vocalist Nate Salman singing over a pop beats and cascading piano flourishes.

Perfect pop, Magnifique!

Pom Pom

The eccentric Ariel Pink back with another cacophony of madcap songs, Pom Pom is receiving rave reviews among the left-field blogs and review sites. It is undoubtably a very required taste to even entertain listening to this record, but repeat listens will throw-up all kinds of feelings. In parts it’s a real challenge in the same way you might approach Captain Beefheart or Frank Zappa. All in one go feels like an epic film on fast forward, it’s melting pot of styles and genres that at it’s best is pure genius.

Not Enough Violence pounds to a marching beat with melodic cascading synths and all kinds of weird noises. Shiny happy moments arrive in the short pop ditty Put Your Number in My Phone. One Summer Night sounds like Sebastian Tellier in a fairground. Goth Bomb is the albums Spinal Tap moment, completely OTT rock, Negativ Ed is more of the same but faster, boarding on cartoon thrash. Jell-O sounds like a fucked-up TV commercial before we get to this track here, Black Ballerina which gives us welcome respite with a hip hop beat and disco synths, usual strange lyrics and a monologue of a young Billy going to an LA strip club. The whole thing has a mashed up eighties vide, finishing with Dayzed Inn Daydreams, a straight up folk song with a big finish!

Organic electronic

Clark’s new self-titled LP for Warp shows an electronic artist sitting at the top of his game. Seven albums in and going strong, full of delightful melodies that collide with sinister beats and unsettling sharp stabs of electro pulse. Banjo, The Grit In The Pearl and Beacon explode with emotional spendor and beauty. Elsewhere we get mellower moments Winter Linn, Snowblind, Strength Through Fragility, that intersperse with slower dirty beautiful sounds and textures. 

The beat driven hypnotically brilliant Unfurla is positively mesmerising with every turn in an intricate landscape. Finishing with the ethereal Everlane this is an LP that you don’t wanna miss, a masterclass that rivals Aphex Twin's similarly excellent Syro. Highly Recommended.

Great new rework of this old Rae & Christian tune from last years Mercury Rising LP from Mang Dynasty AKA Ray Mang and Bill Brewster.

If you had to live your life all over

Written by Johnny Bristol this 1976 track originally appeared on Coke Escobedo’s 2nd album Comin’ At Ya!

A crate diggers delight, a rare groove, latin funk number that keeps you’re body moving.

It begs the question, would you change a thing if you had to live your life all over?!

One things for certain it sounds great when you play it again and again all over!

I'm gonna take you there

Lazy beats of Nao from the So Good EP, lead track is an easy going tune with a hypnotic looping riff. East Londoner A.K. Paul previously worked alongside his brother, Jai Paul, as a multi-instrumentalist collaborator.

A nice slow jam to rock to in the early hours.

Tropical House

Mark Barrott and Gerd Janson team up as Talamanca System for Balanzat, a balearic house tune soaked in tropical heat, sounds of the jungle echo around the classic jacking house groove in the vain of Orbital's Chime, bongo beats adds to the Balearic vibe making an opulent mix of electronic music.

I play the street life

This tune is about a year old, but it’s still packing a disco punch a year on, a rework of 1998’s House stomper Life Is Changing by Cricco Castelli which in turn samples Seventies jazz funkers The Crusaders tune My Lady from their 1979 album Street Life, hence the name Street Life for this tune. The German DJ and producer duo Purple Disco Machine keep it clean and crisp, sticking to their familiar formular of taking old disco tracks and making them into new fresh beats by retaining snippets of the best bits. This is still banging.

Eskimo Green Collection

Showcasing more nu-disco Eskimo tracks, The Green collection follows hot off the heels of The Blue Collection and last years Pink Collection, both previous colours set the bar high for quality disco. The Green Collection is simmering with cosmic grooves that match the same heights of the previous colours, with a bonus mix included with each volume Eskimo are setting up a thrilling series. Great Thing (feat. Jacques Teal) by Horixon and this tune Shimmer by Knight One particularly pop out, but as a whole this LP is a worthy addition to your disco collection. 

This will keep you warm this winter, Recommended.

Way Out (80-84)

Steve Arrington, a member of Dayton funk band Slave and solo star in his own right put out a collection of previously unheard rarities last September, as one of the most sampled bands in hip-hop history Slave had some big disco and funk hits in the eighties.

Arrington enjoyed success as a solo artist with cult classics Feels So Real and Dancin' in the Key of Life. After a 20+ year hiatus from the music business he turns up last year with Higher - Steve Arrington + Dam Funk for Stones Throw Records. So I guess he’s done some digging around into his back catalogue and unearthed some real gems here, on Way Out 80-84 - Summertime Lovin is a feel good funk jam and Without Your Love is a bass slappping groovetastic slab of funk.

Way out there!

Let’s get comfortable

Killer baseline in this Huxley tune from his recent LP Blurred. Guest vocalist, Yasmin puts in sultry and seductive performance. Michael Dodman (AKA Huxley) has put together a stella LP of bass driven house and garage with an infectious groove throughout, Roger Sanchez lends a hand on Callin’ under his S-Man guise.

A warbling bass-head triumph.

Killer Mike and El-P present the duo’s second outing as Run the Jewels and it picks up exactly where its predecessor left off. And it’s every bit as immediate as the first too. Again it’s an all consuming tour de force.

This bonus track is off the hook...
