Kauf – Through The Yard (Fort Romeau Remix)

Permanent Vacation is a popular label around here, I think it's one of the most featured labels on this blog (if memory serves), but it feels like a while since we featured anything from them – luckily we were sent a copy of LA based Kauf's – Though the Way and even though we've been a bit slow getting around to it, I thought i'd feature it as I've been playing it a lot this week on my commute....

House of Black Lanterns – You Were Telling Me of Mountains

I've been sat on You were telling me of Mountains for along time, I was never really sure if i could really blog about a piece of music a complex and layered as this, but in all honesty I revisited it this week and still being blown away by it, I thought that'd it'd be  perfect piece for the weekend.   HoBL will be known to many people, under many different aliases, Zilla, King Cannibal and...

Yunas – Enjoy The Juice

Lately, we have received a huge amount of new music, so most of my listening as i travel to work is checking out as much of it as possible. A lot of what we have received has been great and todays track is a great example. It came to us a while back, but as always, it takes a while to get round to stuff.   Its the first time I have come across Yunas,...

Stayce Dylan – The Introduction of Saint Frances

It's been a while since I heard some Hip Hop that really made me sit up and pay attention. It's not that there isn't good hip hop out there, it's just that so much is generic in one way or another. So it was really refreshing when the Atlanta MC Stayce Dylan's  – The Introduction of Saint Frances landed in my inbox.   "The introduction of" is an exotic journey through Dylan's world, challenging the perceptions of those...

Felix Laband – A True Friend Is Hard To Find

Been doing quite a bit of work this evening so just going to be a quick one. I really haven't listen to much new stuff recently (actually a long time), but wandering through Soundcloud a couple of days ago I came across tonight's track. I have had it on repeat since.   I don't think Laband needs any introduction. I am not an expert on his work but what I know of his I love and this...

Lovers & Poets – That’s The Way It Goes

The Sun is out in Paris, and when I say it's out, it's blisteringly hot, so it's pertinent that today’s choice is taken from a wonderfully summery vibe laden album Lovers & Poets II album by the group of the same name.   Lovers & Poets are Shannon and Ben Hurley, a singer songwriting duo from LA, tasting success in various other outfits this is one of their many projects focusing on slow melodic chilled out pop, it's really...

The Monkees – Listen To The Band

A quick one tonight. I have loaded Up a load more stuff on the old, usb stick and was flicking through, when stuck in traffic, when this beauty came on.   I've always had a bit of a soft spot for the Monkees and many will know that Mike Nesmith released some excellent country rock stuff around the time of Gram Parsons, Gene Clark etc. He wrote great tracks like Different Drum. This late Monkees track showed where he was headed and...

Parcels – Herefore (Roisto Remix)

It's a Bank Holiday weekend, so lets get the week rolling with a nice up tempo slice of happy clappy dance music from blog favourite Roisto, and his superb remix of Herefore by Parcels.   As with most tracks by Roisto it's pure unadulterated poppy disco, and that's a good thing.    The original track by Parcels (below) is about as far removed from Roisto's remix as you can get. Down tempo half time loungey eletronica. I'm not going...

The Revenge – Conkers

Tracks from the Revenge are a regular occurrence on this blog, be it slow mo or deep house Monsieur Clark's music just strikes a chord with me and over the weekend i picked up the both the "Intimate Collection" and the "Roar Groove meets the Dirt Crew" Ep's, both are great and I could have featured any number of tracks but I opted for Conkers because, well, it just rocks.   One of the things i've...

Fort Romeau – Secrets & Lies

I've been a bit absent without leave for the last week or so, so I wanted to come back with an absolutely killer track. Luckily I've been listening to some great music of late, and I decided to opt for Secret & Lies by Fort Romeau.   It's an interesting track that sits across a multitude of time periods, the late 80's early 90's Acid wig out of Aphex Twin, the snappy deep tech house drums of the early 90's...
