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...

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...

The Revenge – Long Lost Love

I think I've actually lost count of the amount of The Revenge/6th Borough Project tracks we've featured. As anyone who's followed the blog will know I'm a huge fan of both incarnations. Of late Mt Clark under his Revenge alias has been a bit more on the raw tracky end of the spectrum which is great but I do love it when he comes back to these disco loop style track head tunes.   Long Lost...

Lukid – Fela

Been really digging in the crates of late and stumbled back upon this killer cut up by Lukid of Fela Kuti (I can't place the sample right now) and decided to post it.   Despite how great it sounds there isn't anything particularly clever about this cut up, it's a pretty simple chop up and in reality, it's purely and simply a DJ track. But, contrasting with that the track starts out with a frenetic pace and...

Chromeo – Juice

Always found Chromeo a bit of an odd group, not odd weird, but odd in that I felt they always had so much potential but found them slightly the wrong side of tongue in cheek. Don't get me wrong I liked their stuff but I always just felt there was so much more potential in their music then was actually delivered.   That's maybe a little harsh, because it's hard to deny that when they hit their straps they are a...
