Odisee – NNGE (Feat. Toine)

So having not picked any hip hop for a while, recently i have picked up quite a bit and have been playing through on the way to work. Plus I'm following on nicely from Aapie's post last night.   Stand out is the latest from Washington DC rapper Odisee (great name). It appears the man is pretty damn prolific but i have to be honest and say i am pretty new to his stuff, but...

Jean Tonique – Un Reve A Deux

Just a quick one tonight but i wanted to pop up this track that has been soundtracking my sun filled journeys to work and my lazy moments by the pool.   The French producer/multi instrumentalist Jean Tonique has been getting a lot of coverage for a while (or so i read) and this track is from 2016 (i think). Whatever, it is fantastic – Aapie and I are suckers for this kind of thing. A...

Modeselektor – Silikon (Siriusmo Remix)

Been digging into the hard drive over the weekend and stumbled back upon the Hello Mom! LP and then by way of that the remix album, and in particular Siriusmo's insanely good remix of Silikion.   Modeselektor are an odd one for me, they seldom pop into the conversation for me but every time I listen to their stuff I'm completely blown away by how energetic and well produced it is sitting somewhere between dark wigged out...

Brasstronaut – Hawk

So I'm getting back in to the swing of things and have a bit more time to check some music out and post too. I'm way behind in terms of putting up stuff I'm listening to on the way to work. The list of tracks on my Spotify playlist is getting longer and longer, far longer than my commute. Schools in Malta are starting to shut down for the summer so traffic is getting better....

Ceiling Demons – March Forward

I haven't posted for a while. Things have been a bit manic. And this means that it has taken a while to getting round to post up todays track. I told Aapie a while ago i would like to and then promptly went AWOL.   Anyway, as Moloko once said, the time is now and its a truly lovely track from one of the bands we have probably covered the most on this blog, Ceiling...

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...

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...

Christine and the Queens – Tilted (Paradis Remix)

There is so much great music coming out over the next few days it's unreal. So I guess it's a little ironic that i'm opting for a track nearly a year old in Paradis's remix of the amazing Tilted by Christine and the Queens.   In truth I'd forgotten all about this version of the track, the original is a particular favourite but i may actually like this version better (especially the French version, but more...

Mr Myoplast – Frailty (Mrs Jynx Remix)

There are artists who are prolific and artists who barely release anything, Mrs Jynx falls into the second category. The thing is, I tend to find that those less prolific artists make music that is genuinely stunning. Perhaps it's a quality control thing, they only put out music that is exactly what they want, or perhaps they just don't produce incessantly, either way I think it can be quite a rare thing when you get an...

Time Machine – Night Lights

I haven't bought any hip hop in ages and that makes me sad. Because i really do like hip hop. I also really like Bandcamp. And what i really like about Bandcamp are their mail outs and summaries. A while back they sent out a summary of the best recent hip hop releases and there was some great stuff on there. I really recommend you sign up if you haven't.   One of the releases on the list was...
