Yunas Orchestra – Scratching The Surface

Oh man, i have been pretty rubbish at checking out new music for quite some time now…its been that hectic. On top of that we still get sent some great stuff. Stuff i like i keep to one side with the aim of posting it up, but then the days and weeks go by and other stuff comes through etc.   Anyway, tonight i had a bit of spare time so I went back to...

The Radio Dept – I don’t need love, I’ve got my band

Tonight is a track i have been meaning to put up for some time as it just keeps coming on , on my drive to work. On top of that its by one of my favourite bands and it has possibly the best Indie song title ever.   I have posted a few tracks by the Swedish band, The Radio Dept…there isn’t much more to say other than they manage to some how mine the...

Ricky Castelli – U Can Feel It

Great music is believed to be timeless. I’ll buy that, but in reverse, I’d offer that great music is frequently made with timeless sounds. Take House Music for example, from the 80’s to now a couple of sounds that continually/always jump right out of some of the best tracks in the genre are the Korg M1 Piano and the Dx7’s Lately Bass sound.   I daren’t think how many records in my collection are made...

Erdbeerschnitzel – Morgans Glen

I’ve always been a follower of Erdbeerschnitzel, but I do understand his eclectic take on music production doesn’t always mean you know what you’re getting but when he hits the spot he really is on another level. I really also love the fact he makes music as a hobby and is open about it, it’s not his primary artistic outlet and he’s frequently said he does it for fun first and foremost.   To the...

Kiasmos – Blurred

So we have been missing in action a bit over the last couple of weeks, due to work and travel…but I’m back now and its a quick one as i’m throwing up a track i have been meaning to put up for a while, but an artist we have covered before.   You probably know that Kiasmos is a collaboration between Olafur Arnalds and Janus Rasmussen. Blurred is a track from their last EP and what...

Pilooski – Can’t there be Love

A little bit of a funny story behind why i'm posting this blast from the past, and it's kind of purely for my own amusement, essentially I was sat listening to some music and on came the Pilooski re-edit of Dee Edwards Why can't there be Love. As it starts I can see across the room my seven-year-old son tapping his finger along to the opening intro only to turn to me when the chopping...

SØNIN – Polarity

SØNIN may be new to the mighty Youth Control label, but he comes with a fair old pedigree and years of experience behind him – cutting his teeth in the Gabber and scene he's shown a chameleon-eqsue ability to mutate his production to whatever he decides to lend himself to, be it Deep Nordic House to Indie Disco. Now finding a home on Youth Control he drops a two-track EP, All of my Teenage Crimes and...

Ada – …And More

First stumbled upon Ada's 2011 LP Meine Zarten Pfoten. In all honesty, when it first dropped it completely blew my fragile little mind. Just in how experimental it was alongside how polished it was. One of the problems with what I'd classify experimental music is it tends to lack some of the basics for the need to push the boundaries, I guess the word I'm looking for is a balance.   Regardless, it doesn't really...

MAM – Crushed Ice

My journey to walk is currently about 10 minutes drive, via school, so I don't really get much time to listen to music on the way into work, but hey ho, such is life. it just means that I have to use my spare time more wisely and make the most of it. Luckily we're a house that nearly always has some kind of music on, be it the Radio or my Son's youtube playlist which...
