Patrice Rushen – Haven’t You Heard (Joey Negro Extended Disco Mix)

It's been a while since I posted, but that's been largely down to the fact I've been on Holiday for a bit.   Anyway, wanted to jump back on the horse and with a few hours stuck on a flight I caught up with some music i'd recently purchased, one of which was the Joey Negro "Remixed with Love" series from 2013.   I know that's a bit of a throwback but I've always been a...

Touch Sensitive – Lay Down

I'm always over excited when Michael Di Francesco's Touch Sensitive project releases another track so when i woke up this morning to see just that when i opened my feed this morning I was, yeah you've guessed it, a little over excited.   It's pretty much what you'd expect from Touch Sensitive, classic up lifiting house sounds – M1 piano and Juno string Chords over a midtempo 4/4 and FM bassline. It doesn't sound like much...

Christine and the Queens – Tilted (Paradis Remix)

There is so much great music coming out over the next few days it's unreal. So I guess it's a little ironic that i'm opting for a track nearly a year old in Paradis's remix of the amazing Tilted by Christine and the Queens.   In truth I'd forgotten all about this version of the track, the original is a particular favourite but i may actually like this version better (especially the French version, but more...

Mr Myoplast – Frailty (Mrs Jynx Remix)

There are artists who are prolific and artists who barely release anything, Mrs Jynx falls into the second category. The thing is, I tend to find that those less prolific artists make music that is genuinely stunning. Perhaps it's a quality control thing, they only put out music that is exactly what they want, or perhaps they just don't produce incessantly, either way I think it can be quite a rare thing when you get an...

Run The Jewels feat. Zack de la Rocha – Close Your Eyes (And Count To F**k)

Very quick post from me today as I''ve been traveling all week and my time has evaporated in front of my eyes, so today i'm going for a track that has pepped me up and captured by mood pretty much everyday this week…. Run the Jewels – Close your Eyes.   Considering how big a fan of Run the Jewels I am, I'm astounded I haven't actually featured more of their stuff, so rectifying that today...

Saint Pepsi – Cherry Pepsi

So I've been really listening to a lot of 80's tinged music of late, the Alan Braxe track from the other night touched on the whole Vaporware scene and one of my first encounters with that scene (as such) was the Saint Pepsi LP Hit Vibes, from which today’s post comes.   The thing I really liked about Hit Vibes was that it didnt' try to be anything other than what it was which was...

Alan Braxe – Voices

I've been away for a few weeks, partly with taking a break and partly with work. But it's back to the grind this week and thanks to fourbearsjr for holding the fort for the last two weeks. I'm going to be quick tonight as time is very limited and in honesty my listening pleasure has been severely restricted, having said that I've been digging a lot of the vapuorware stuff that's floating around right now. But it's also had...

DJ Shadow – Systematic Feat. Nas

It's always a worry when two of your all time heroes team up. On paper it's a wonderful thing, but in reality it's often the case the magnificence of the idea is far better than the actual output. So I was a little nervous when I saw DJ shadow and Nas had collaborated on a track.    Thankfully it's a bloody awesome slice of pounding Classic Era style (hold that thought) hip Hop in which...

Roisto – Come On

It's not hard to spot the influence on Roisto's new track Come On, it's classic French Filter Disco House, reminiscent of Roulé  and Scratché and artists like the Buffalo Bunch and Bangalter. It's a genuine throwback a hard overly compressed pumping one bar disco loop with a snappy vocal loop running through it that worms it's way into your ears and doesn't stop until it's embedded in your brain.   As with a lot of the French...

Talking Heads – This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)

When I decided to do todays post I had to check back through the archives because i just couldn't believe neither of us had blogged it at any point. Yes, it's a chestnut, but for good reason as it might just be one of the best songs ever written (actually no might about it – it is). It's certainly a point where Fourbearsjr and myself's musical taste really first converged, as kids we both listened to...
