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...

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...

Sorcerer – Pineapple

You may have noticed we had some issues with the website the last few days, but we're back up and running now, so i'm gonna get in early and start the week off with a cracking piece of feel good disco tinged electronica from Sorcerer, Pineapple.   I've always found sorcerer an interesting artist, the mix of live guitar and electronic production is obviously nothing new and the sound is often lumped in the new Balearic sound but...

Baby Charles – I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor

Look, I am going to make this really easy for you. This came on this morning and made me remember how good it is. New funk and funk covers became/are quite common/popular. Some miss, but this just works brilliantly.   obviously it helps that the arctic monkeys original is a truly immense track but it suits funk so well, plus it is done so well. The drums/percussion just fire it along and the vocal is...

Dreamcast & Sasac – Liquid Deep

Just a quick post tonight but I wanted to stick something up as I have been coming across some really lovely stuff which I have been blasting out as I cruise to work (oh yeah).   I actually came across this track while flicking through soundcloud (I think) and to be fair I don't know a huge amount about the artists/label other than the first is from Sweden and the later is Washington DC based PPU. But what...

Booker T & The MG’s – Soul Limbo

They don't create them tunes like this anymore. So, the other day I was driving to work just randomly playing through stuff on the USB stick in my car when todays track came on and it got me thinking.   Maybe it's because I'm older, maybe it's because the internet has demystified finding out what the name of a track is or who it's by, but I can't think of many theme tunes these days where I...

Kauf – Key to Life

There are some tracks that just define moments for you, and lately life has been moving pretty fast. As such I'm glad it's the weekend and I can enjoy the last few days of summer. Sat on the terrace, listening to beautiful summery music.   On my playlist for the last few days and perfect for these moments is the latest track Key to Life from a favourite of ours Kauf.    As I've said we've featured...

H1 2016 Mix

So, as you know Aapie and I have full time jobs and families, so we do this on the side, when we can. We often talk about doing mixes or summaries of posts we have stuck up but rarely get time to do it. In fact i pretty much did a mix of a few tracks from 2015 that i never got round to finishing. Anyway, i finally pulled my finger out and complete a...

Imagined Herbal Flows – Evolve

Instrumental Hip Hop gets a bad rep in this day and age, Trip Hop seems to be a dirty word but it's a genre I still love and admire very much. In my opinion it’s also one of the hardest genres of music to make well. Keeping a down tempo track flowing and interesting with no vocal hook etc.. is, uhm, difficult.   In setting out and listening to Wednesdays post I stumbled across a track I'd not...

Hot 8 Brass Band – Sexual Healing & Williams Fairey Brass Band – Voodoo Ray

So it's a two for one , brass band cover version kind of thing tonight. I have been meaning to put the Hot 8 Brass Band cover version since it came out, but when it came on this morning it gave me the opportunity to do so.   So, these kind of things, genre bending cover versions, can be a bit hit and miss. Plus there are some tracks that you really don't touch. I...
