Tycho – Awake

I was laid up with a bad back today and with time on my hands, and with an eye on doing a mixtape, I revisited some older music and Tycho’s album Awake album popped up, and decided i would finally blog the title track after listening to it repeatedly. Two things i love in music is melancholy and melody and Tycho's music is swathed in layers and layers of both, it's the kind of music...

J Pennyworth – No One Knows (Feat. CYN)

It has been a busy old time since moving to Malta and so I have been absent from the blog for a couple of weeks. Leaving it all to Aapie. And as I sit here I am pretty shattered, so going to make it fast,  but really wanted to share today's track as I have been wanting to post it for a while.  No One Knows by J Pennyworth. I shared his brilliant remix of Rae Sremmurd's No...

DJ Koze – I Haven’t Been Everywhere But It’s On My List

One of our favourite artists around here is DJ Koze. His Amygdala LP was an essential purchase when it came out back in 2013, and the housey Nices Wölkchen was on my playlist or a number of months. His DJ Kicks offering, number 50 in the series, came out earlier this month on K7 Records and again has got a lot of rotation in my headphones. It's a quite mesmeric mix, but it's the opening...

Art Crime – Eye Contact

“Deep House” is a strange one in this day and age; go to any online music retailer and click on deep house and you'll get everything from Disclosure to Ten Walls to Future Classic style tropical house. Which is fine, it's all decent music, but it does illustrate the point Deep House has kind of become a catch all genre for everything that doesn’t already have a genre assigned to it. But wade through all...

House Shoes Presents: The Gift Vol. VIII – Raj Mahal

It's not often we feature a whole album, normally choosing to focus on one track and talk about that whilst skirting around the fact there is an album behind it. But it's so difficult to separate out anything from today's choice of the Gift Vol 8 by Raj Mahal as it's effectively a beat tape – meaning tracks are short sharp and to the point, showcasing the producers knack for stunning off kilter instrumental tracks,...

I.N.I – Fakin’ Jax feat Pete Rock

If you've peeked at our Instagram you'll have seen i've been sorting through my record collection which has resulted in me revisiting a lot of older music, including some classic Hip Hop. In talking with Fourbears last time we saw each other I mentioned I didn’t think we featured enough Hip Hop on the blog. Yeah we have the occasional track here and there, but considering both of us grew up listening to and DJ’ing...

Sweet Tooth T – She Can’t Love You

Greg Wilson should be a familiar name to all our readers, his DJ sets and re-edits have been a staple part of this, and the Interesting Blends, blog over the years we've been running. But legendary status or not touching a classic is always dangerous territory, be it a re-edit or a cover version when you do it you'd better get it right or face the consequences for a long long time. So when I found out that...

Trinxat – Corol-lari

Welcome back to The Walk to Work, and our new website – it's a little bit new, but a little bit the same. It's been a long discussion, and we've had much debate, around re-designing the website. Total change of direction (looks wise) or keep a familiar feel to everything – we opted for the latter. So here it is, let us know what you think and let us know if you find anything not working. Additionally if...

Larry Heard – Two Journeys

Ok, so there has been a  lot going on behind the scenes here, as you know Fourbears has been moving, and we've also been knee deep in planning out a new website and the likes… so later this week (Wednesday) we'll be going off line for a few days as everything is migrated to the new layout. I'm going to sign off for the week with one of the mightiest recording artists to ever grace the...

Fine Young Cannibals – Johnny Come Home

I'm still getting to grips with Maltese radio and to be honest, nothing has come on that has really got me going. But as I drove through the sunshine, Good Thing by the Fine Young Cannibals came on. I am really big fan of their work, so while I'm not going to go for the track played today, I'm going to go for one of their tracks. I almost went for the tremendous I'm Not...
