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...

MC Cormac – Yes I Will [prod. Zack Young]

I know things have been a bit sporadic of late, but as mentioned elsewhere we've both been on extended breaks for family, holidays and work. We took a decision a while ago to stop posting every day and concentrate on just posting when we really wanted to share something – so for me, today is the day and i'm sharing a quality piece of hip hop from MC Cormac.   Hip Hop is such a debatable...

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...

Rony Rex – Burn (KASPERG Remix)

I've been off on Holiday for a few weeks so many thanks to Fourbearsjr for holding the fort n my absence, but back, with Batteries recharged and I'm going to drop a soulful slice of Electronic house in Kaspergs remix of Rony Rex's Burning on Youth Control Recordings (yes, those cheeky chaps from Helsinki are back with another top notch EP of modern house).   The Remix EP comes with tracks from Roisto, Gas Gas...

Mozart’s Sister – Eternally Girl

Aapie and i have been missing in action from the blog over the last couple of weeks due to travelling and it just being a generally busy time. But time to stick something up.   It will be a quick one but a lovely one. Many will have maybe come across Mozart's Sister, maybe not. Anyway, it is Carla Thompson-Hannah who hails from Montreal, Canada. Tonight's track is off her second album which was released...

Big Block Silvers – Jack Sparrow

So i am going to make it a hip hop hat-trick for this week and its a beauty from a great EP.   Big Block Silvers hail from Oceanside, California. I came across their BOLD EP on bandcamp. Its the only thing they have up on the site so i assume its their first proper release. And what a release it is – Out in Feb of this year it is 6 tracks of quality hip...
