tape_hiss – The Panic In Needle Park

House is a strange genre of music (ed: it's not really), it has so many subdivisions out there that it's almost impossible to keep track of what's what, so I'm a firm believer in going with what you enjoy.For me when it comes to house music it has to have soul and emotion, and that's exactly what I think today's choice is all about.   tape_hiss – The Panic In Needle Park   I know very...

Medina Green – Crosstown Beef

A quick one tonight, but a great one. I was cruising to work this morning when the amazing Black Milk track Watch Em came on and knocked me sideways. We have already posted that beauty, but it got me thinking about other hip hop stuff and for some reason (maybe the lovely bass line led groove and great rapping) it reminded me of today's track.   Crosstown Beef by Medina Green. This track is from the great...

Satin Jackets – We Can Talk feat Emma Brammer

January was a crazy month, and I've struggled to get the time to listen to as much music as i'd have liked, partly due to work and partly due to my current earphones being one of the worst pairs I've ever owned (still it's my birthday next week so fingers crossed).   But hey, we struggle through, and thankfully some of the music coming out has been good enough that you could listen to it...

Doug Hream Blunt – Gentle Persuasion

  We've always been fans of David Byrne around here, be it with Talking Heads or his solo work we've always considered him an absolute visionary, and his label Luaka Bop comes under that. Notorious for digging up gems from the past and present they struck gold (in my eyes) late last year when they released a compilation/retrospective of the (almost)legendary Doug Hream Blunt's works entitled "My Name is Doug Hream Blunt".   Doug Hream Blunt is,...

Free n Losh – Runnin

Posts have been a bit sporadic over the last couple of weeks due to sheer business and travel. I have been fully missing in action so it's good to throw something up.   and it will be a quick one tonight, a track we got sent quite a while back, but a track that I have been playing a lot recently as I sit in traffic, under the beautiful  sunny weather we are experiencing in...

VINCENT FLOYD – get up (tape_hiss dub)

A few months ago whilst checking my Soundcloud stream I stumbled upon a beautiful deep house from an artist called Tape_Hiss. The track isn't out yet, when it is I'll blog it, and as yet has no release date, but every time I check back to see if it's penciled in for release I pick up on this remix he did of Vincent Floyd's classic Get Up.   The Original (below) came out on Dance Mania, way back in 1990, and anyone...

2814 – True Love

I've always had a soft spot for film score style electronic music, but Vaporware as a genre isn't something i've delved into too deeply.   I picked up this 2814 LP/EP "Birth of a New Day" on bandcamp the other day after listening to it on the Telepath soundcloud stream and being completely blown away by how deep and emotive the tracks are.   It's very hard to separate an album like this up, but I'm going to pluck True...

Eagles – One Of These Nights (Dawn Again Edit)

Sometimes life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it, said Ferris one day. And you know what he was god damn right, so i'm going blog a nice lazy easy listening track that I stumbled on a couple of months ago but had forgotten about until it popped up on my playlist today.   Eagles – One Of These Nights (Dawn Again Edit)   Now if...

Iggy Pop – The Passenger

So I tried to think of things to post up today but I have to say that the events/reporting of yesterday still looms large and dominates most music and music talk I'm engaged in. So I thought I would post one more in memory of the  main man Bowie. And I thought I would acknowledge the effect he had on his peers and the support and inspiration he gave them. People like Lou Reed and...
