Touch Sensitive – Lay Down

I'm always over excited when Michael Di Francesco's Touch Sensitive project releases another track so when i woke up this morning to see just that when i opened my feed this morning I was, yeah you've guessed it, a little over excited.   It's pretty much what you'd expect from Touch Sensitive, classic up lifiting house sounds – M1 piano and Juno string Chords over a midtempo 4/4 and FM bassline. It doesn't sound like much...

Tiger & Woods – The Stopper

Tiger & Woods have long been a team that have straddled the re-edit/rework genre and straight up production. Taking their cues from artists like DJ Sneak, Van Helden and yes, the Daft Punks they've been producing some of the best loop based cut and paste jobs you'll hear.   Their duo's trademark has been to take 80's soul gems and rework them into modern club friendly fodder. This time it's Kaino's awesome Don't try to stop Me that gets put through the...

Matt Miller – Want You Need You

A couple of early starts means I’ve been on the train on my own for most of my journeys this week. It's relaxing to say the least and my listening has been reasonably simple and chilled. I got up with a bit of a fuzzy head and I didn't want anything to challenging so opted for a simple down tempo house playlist – hold on, hold on… for me that's a lot of 80's tinged...
