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...

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...

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...

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...

Charly Brown – The Twilight Zone

Well seeing as I started the week with a throwback, i'm taking the easy option and sticking with it and going for another classic in Charly Brown – The Twiglight Zone.   The Twiglight Zone is one of those tracks, it landed at a time (1997) when Acid Jazz and similar was just starting to break into new directions and it's funked laced loopy grooves absolutely hit home with the jazz scene crowds as much as it...

Million Dollar Weekends – Addicted To Your Love (Disco Despair Remix)

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...

Fred Falke – 808pm at the Beach

Diving into the crates today to pluck out a longtime favourite of mine Fred Falke – 808pm at the Beach.   It's the end of summer here and as everything starts to cool down the weather is absolutely perfect for lounging around and enjoying the evenings, and i guess that's why ive been listening to a lot of the French Touch material, of which Falke is probably one of the best exponents.   808pm is typical...
