COEO – Flesh World

Berlin-based Toy Tonics have been making a fair name for themselves of late, and I recently picked up the wonderful Flesh World EP by COEO from their Bandcamp page, deep sultry thick sweaty house….mmmmmmm! sweaty.   I do love looping tracks, and Flesh World the main track is a mesmerising zoned out groove, reminiscent of the early DJ Sneak,  and the other 83 west Records crew. By that I mean it's just a constant loop, with subtle...

Dynasty – Outlaw (Wildcats Pt II)

The last few weeks have been insanely busy, work social and family and as such the blog has had to take a major backseat, purely for my own sanity, but now I have a few months clear I want to really focus on music again and am going to drop back into the fray with a super sick slice of east coast style hip hop. Dynasty – Outlaw (Wildcat Of II) I always carried a...

Kauf – Limestone

I think I speak for both Fourbearsjr and myself in stressing how important emotion is in the music we enjoy.   I understand that emotion is a very difficult quality to pinpoint in words with any subtleness. Love, Happiness, Sadness, Anger, Pain! All great words that convey an emotional point and leave no real room for interpretation. But when you move away from the written medium emotion becomes much harder to explain. Yet it's something that really...

Touch Sensitive – Visions LP

There was only ever going to be one artist for me to blog about today, September the 15th, the release date for Visions by Touch Sensitive. Most readers will know I'm a massive fan of Touch Sensitive and I've literally been waiting years for him to drop this album.   Am I pleased with it? Hell yes, one of the things I really like about De Francesco's Touch Sensitive Project is how rather than toeing the regular...

MC Cormac – Yes I Will [prod. Zack Young]

I know things have been a bit sporadic of late, but as mentioned elsewhere we've both been on extended breaks for family, holidays and work. We took a decision a while ago to stop posting every day and concentrate on just posting when we really wanted to share something – so for me, today is the day and i'm sharing a quality piece of hip hop from MC Cormac.   Hip Hop is such a debatable...

Roisto – No Regrets

Regular readers around here will be familiar with the fact that both Fourbearsjr and myself are kind of obsessed with the 80's tinged discofied Frenchtouch sound of guys like Alan Braxe, Fred Falke and Madeon etc… Back in the mid to late 90's when the early French sound emerged, via Daft Punk and Cassius it was difficult to envisage how big a movement within dance music it was going to be.   I can remember being...

Rony Rex – Burn (KASPERG Remix)

I've been off on Holiday for a few weeks so many thanks to Fourbearsjr for holding the fort n my absence, but back, with Batteries recharged and I'm going to drop a soulful slice of Electronic house in Kaspergs remix of Rony Rex's Burning on Youth Control Recordings (yes, those cheeky chaps from Helsinki are back with another top notch EP of modern house).   The Remix EP comes with tracks from Roisto, Gas Gas...

Total Eclipse – 2012 DMC Showcase

Complete throwback today, and a break from the norm in that i'm posting a video instead of a track.   Most people who follow this blog will know i used to be massively into turntablism and hip hop (I still am if the truth be told), and like everyone i always enjoyed the legendary New York DJ's the X-Men/X-Ecutioners sets. Leading the crew was Roc Raida and Rob Swift but I was always more into Total...

The Pharcyde – Drop

Been away for a bit and decided to make my triumphant comeback with an all time classic that i'm kind of gobsmacked we haven't featured before; The Pharcyde – Drop   There isn't really that much to say about The Pharcyde that everyone doesn't already know, but Drop is without doubt one of my favourite Rap records ever, it's also one of my favourite videos as well.   It's rare that a video really locks into a...

Modeselektor – Silikon (Siriusmo Remix)

Been digging into the hard drive over the weekend and stumbled back upon the Hello Mom! LP and then by way of that the remix album, and in particular Siriusmo's insanely good remix of Silikion.   Modeselektor are an odd one for me, they seldom pop into the conversation for me but every time I listen to their stuff I'm completely blown away by how energetic and well produced it is sitting somewhere between dark wigged out...
