Son Of Sound – New York Iz All I Know (Aroop Roy Remix)

Londons Delusions of Grandeur has long been one of my go-to labels releasing some of the best deep house of the last decade (even though they only started in 2009). Artists like the Revenge, Manuel Tur, deep Space orchestra and 6th Borough Project have all graced the label at various stages. Chopped disco, deep stripped back fidgeting tech house works outs? You think of it they've featured it.   Ok, so the labels got pedigree,...

MTNS – Waves

It's quite rare I get sent an E.P and I'm genuinely stuck on which track I want to feature but it does happen and the Like a Stone EP  from Brisbane based Australian Trio MTNS is one of those occasions.   From the minute I first put it on two tracks jumped out at me, Waves and Slow Motion they are both absolutely wonderful tracks. I'm going to opt for Waves as the feature but regardless you...

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...

New Order – Bizarre Love Triangle

To be honest i could get away with writing nothing and just posting tonight’s track. Such is the magnitude of this song and the band who released it.  For some reason, this song seems to come on  via random more than others when i am cruising to work and every time it does…i go a little bit bonkers. In fact, i still get the same emotion/thrill when i hear as i did the first time....

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...

Mayten – Hive

Ooooh its been a while…usual stuff blah blah blah and as often is the case i have been meaning to put this track up for some time.   We have featured Mayten, the electronic music produce from Seattle, before – the fantastic Detours. What i love about that track was that while it was an electronic, it had a beautiful almost organic sound, additionally it really took you on a journey, through genres (techno, deep...

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...

Yumi Zouma – Persephone

A journey that should have taken me about 15 minutes took me over an hour today. That's the way it is in Malta sometimes if there is an accident or a breakdown. But usually the sun is shining and the music is playing so it kind of makes up for it. I also had a colleague with me who i picked up on the way so I didn't subject him to my music taste so...

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...
