Oliver Nelson – Rhubarb

Summer is fast approaching and we are starting to see some proper summer barn stormers being released and making an appearance on our blog….and we have another one tonight.   We have covered Oliver Nelson a few times on the blog – we are both pretty big fans of his nu-disco goodness. When he is on form, damn his tracks are catchy as hell. Today's track, on the always excellent Perfect Havoc label, sees him saunter into...

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...

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...

Cavego – Red Light (Feat. Arielle) Koobra Remix

It's going to be a short one tonight but its that gang at Youth Control lighting up my mornings and middle aged dance moves. In fact, I wasn't going to post this track but i realised that 1) its awesome and 2) i have been absolutely hammering it on my way to work each morning for quite sometime.   Its no secret that we are huge fans of the Youth Control label. The quality and...

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...

Private Agenda – Tender

Tonight's track is tremendous, i almost want to just stop the post there and let you get into it. We were kindly sent this track and i have been meaning to post up for a couple of weeks now, but things have been a bit crazy and have only got to it now.   Its a tremendous blast of Hi-NRG Disco from Berlin duo Private Agenda on the also Berlin based label Royal Athlete. Its...

TM Juke & The Jack Baker Trio – Put Your Hands Up For Detroit

Absolute blast from the past here in TM Juke & The Jack Baker Trio funked up cover version of Put Your Hands Up For Detroit by Fedde Le Grand and it's pretty much exactly what you think, a super funk version performed by a life band.   I was always a fan of TM Juke ever since i heard "Life, Rainfall" many years ago. That was a very sample heavy track, and it's nice to see how he's...
