RJD2 – 1976

I've been revisiting RJD2's "Since we last Spoke" over the last few days and decided to throw up 1976 from that album.   I remember when the album first dropped, I was confused the album got absolutely slated but i completely loved it, and in some places more than the mighty Deadringer – I think most people expected RJ to head back to Deadringer territory but he flexed his creative muscles and delivered a really varied album that took in...

Half Waif – Frost Burn

A quick one tonight but a track I have been meaning to put up for a while. It follows on from the Half Waif track I posted a couple of weeks ago- it's so good it had to go up.   While I loved Severed Logic I like Frost Burn even more. It's the second single from her upcoming ep. Again it is a lovely blend of vocal electronica but I love the synth riff build that then breaks into the...

Crystal Fighters – Good Girls (TJH87 Remix)

Really digging this new remix of Crystal Fighters Good Girls by TJH87.   We've regularly featured TJH87, and other artists of the wonderful Youth Control, but whilst Youth Control has been focused on the more Nu-Disco sound over the last year or so TJH87 has been an outlet for the more experimental side of Timo and Hectors musings, and I have to say it's working really well.   Good Girls is a euphoric piece of uplifting...

Baby Charles – I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor

Look, I am going to make this really easy for you. This came on this morning and made me remember how good it is. New funk and funk covers became/are quite common/popular. Some miss, but this just works brilliantly.   obviously it helps that the arctic monkeys original is a truly immense track but it suits funk so well, plus it is done so well. The drums/percussion just fire it along and the vocal is...

Bicep – The Game (Catz ‘N Dogz Interpretation)

We've changed things around here a little bit, not in look but in how we approach the blog, daily has just become unsustainable with our day to day real world commitments so we've decided to scale back and make sure we post amazing music when we find it/want to, as such you may not see a post for a couple fo days but when you do it should hopefully be something you'll dig even more....

Syl Johnson – Is it because I’m Black (David August Live Reconstruction)

Posting a couple of days late as it's my birthday and I have been buys. As it is my birthday I have decided I'm going to post whatever the hell I want, and what I want to post is David Augusts awesome rework of Syl Johnson's classic 70's ode to empowerment "Is it because i'm black".   Call it a reconstruction, call it a remix, or call it a re-edit the fact is it thumps...

Dreamcast & Sasac – Liquid Deep

Just a quick post tonight but I wanted to stick something up as I have been coming across some really lovely stuff which I have been blasting out as I cruise to work (oh yeah).   I actually came across this track while flicking through soundcloud (I think) and to be fair I don't know a huge amount about the artists/label other than the first is from Sweden and the later is Washington DC based PPU. But what...

The Handroidz – Vanguard

To coin one of Fourbearjrs favourite phrases, tonight is going to be a quick one, and i'm just going to opt for a track that has long long been a favourite of mine, The Handroidz – Vanguard. Vanguard as a track is one of those occasion where so many elements from different genres come together and it came at a time when the slo-motion electronica/deep house sound was still in it's embryonic stage. Down around the 94bpm range it's...

Eat More Cake – Heat Of The Night

i must look like a lunatic when I'm driving to work in the mornings, particularly when I have tracks like this on and the sun is shining There is no doubt I will be doing some outrageous head nodding and making my sunglasses dance in time by flicking the arms behind my ears.   Aapie and I are suckers for stuff like Eat More Cake's Heat Of The Night on the excellent and ever growing Perfect...

Ice Cube – Endangered Species (Tales from the Darkside)

Ok, so I'm going to keep with the theme Fourbearsjr started yesterday and go for a track that is as apt today as it was when it first came out, all the way back in 1990, Ice Cube –  Endangered Species (Tales from the Darkside).   The whole album is absolutely amazing, to this day it sounds as fresh as back then. The day I heard it it had the exact same impact on me as Straight...
