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...

Emancipator – All In Here

Been missing in action for a bit as I've been traveling around a lot and my internet access has been sporadic and my listening has been very much curtailed at every attempt.   Sometimes though having less to listen to is a good thing, you focus in on a track and enjoy it for what it is rather than how much it grabs your attention at any given time, and All In Here by Emancipator is...

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.

Hatchback- Baker Beach

It's odd how we can miss tracks by artists we love, so imagine my surprise when writing the Sorcerer post from Monday I stumbled across Baker Beach by Hatchback. Not sure how i missed it, because again it's a track by an artist i am genuinely a huge fan of.    I've really been enjoying the whole dreamy Cali-Electronica scene of late. The Sorcerer track, this from Hatchback it's just music that's perfect for this time of...

Lovers & Poets – That’s The Way It Goes

The Sun is out in Paris, and when I say it's out, it's blisteringly hot, so it's pertinent that today’s choice is taken from a wonderfully summery vibe laden album Lovers & Poets II album by the group of the same name.   Lovers & Poets are Shannon and Ben Hurley, a singer songwriting duo from LA, tasting success in various other outfits this is one of their many projects focusing on slow melodic chilled out pop, it's really...

Men I Trust – Break For Lovers Ft. Helena

Something both of us on the blog are deeply in love with is melancholic music. The more (happy) sad a piece of music is the bigger a pair suckers for it you could not find. The sadder the better really.   Which leads me to my choice for today, Men I Trust's "Break for Lovers" feat Helena.   It's quite hard to put my finger on why I like it so much, in some ways it reminds me...
