Kauf – Regrowth LP

So regular readers will know we've long been fans of Kauf and his melancholic melodic emotion-laden brand of Electonica and finally we have an album and surprise surprise it's quite wonderful.   Regrowth as an LP is that rare thing in modern music a cohesive journey. In a time where, I'd say, 99% of albums feel pieced together after the fact an album like this where it's clearly been curated to fill out the details of 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...

Vulfpeck – Back Pocket

Posts have been a bit thin on the ground between Aapie and I for a number of reasons. Mostly to do with us being old gits with jobs and families (neither of those are bad things by the way and I'm not complaining). additionally, i have been meaning to post this track fooooorrrreevvvvvvvveeeer.   Why? well because it is funky as hell. You have probably heard of Vulfpeck, the American funk/indie band. Their last album got...

Mozart’s Sister – Eternally Girl

Aapie and i have been missing in action from the blog over the last couple of weeks due to travelling and it just being a generally busy time. But time to stick something up.   It will be a quick one but a lovely one. Many will have maybe come across Mozart's Sister, maybe not. Anyway, it is Carla Thompson-Hannah who hails from Montreal, Canada. Tonight's track is off her second album which was released...

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...

Sudden Impact feat Jessica Lauren – Clear Space

Ooh its just going to be a quick one tonight and i am taking it back to the early nineties, just at the death of Acid Jazz and the beginnings of big beat/break beat.   I was working from home today and so was checking out some music. Then my son stole my tablet for a while so i went to vinyl for the first time in quite a while and started playing through some...

Jean Tonique – Un Reve A Deux

Just a quick one tonight but i wanted to pop up this track that has been soundtracking my sun filled journeys to work and my lazy moments by the pool.   The French producer/multi instrumentalist Jean Tonique has been getting a lot of coverage for a while (or so i read) and this track is from 2016 (i think). Whatever, it is fantastic – Aapie and I are suckers for this kind of thing. A...

Parisian Soul – Keep On Dancing

It's been a while since I posted, mainly because I've been flogged at work, and stuck traveling a lot. I literally only got back yesterday form two weeks away so today being my first day off in similar time I decided to catch up on some new music and was promptly gob smacked by the new Parisian Soul 12, and the track Keep on Dancing.   It's about as simple a track as you'll get, a thumping...
