The Kinks – Father Christmas

As i've said many times, I love Christmas, so every year I try to put up a Christmas Song. So here goes for this year..and its a track I have to say has only been in my Christmas playlist for a couple of years. But I think its ace.   So im sure you have all heard of the Kinks, so not much to be said there. And this is a typical Kinks track, catchy,...

Hatchie – Sure

So as Aapie said yesterday, its been a funny old time with him being out of action and me frankly being all over the place. Anyway, we are back now, so all is good. And like Aapie i have been using the time to catch up on some music. While doing that I came across tonight’s gem.   Look, I love a bit of Indie Pop, and frankly, i don't really trust anyone who doesn’t. Hatchie is Harriette Pilbeam,...

This Is The Kit – Hotter Colder

Tonights track has been all over BBC 6 music for weeks now and relentlessly on my car stereo…and for good reason. It is absolutely, off the scale stunning. In fact, the first time i heard it, it came on my internet radio in the kitchen and i thought to myself, hello, what is this. At exactly the same moment my wife asked what it was. Its the sort of track that creates that impact.  ...

J-Walk – Soul Vibration

One of the things I liked most about DJ'ing was hearing what other DJ's played. If you were playing back to back that was even better, a deck each and vibing off each other, sure there is always a little bit of competitiveness in there but it was always interesting to see what the other DJ pulled from the bag.   Occasionally one of you would pull a new track that would make the other (and crowd)...

New Order – Bizarre Love Triangle

To be honest i could get away with writing nothing and just posting tonight’s track. Such is the magnitude of this song and the band who released it.  For some reason, this song seems to come on  via random more than others when i am cruising to work and every time it does…i go a little bit bonkers. In fact, i still get the same emotion/thrill when i hear as i did the first time....

Dynasty – Outlaw (Wildcats Pt II)

The last few weeks have been insanely busy, work social and family and as such the blog has had to take a major backseat, purely for my own sanity, but now I have a few months clear I want to really focus on music again and am going to drop back into the fray with a super sick slice of east coast style hip hop. Dynasty – Outlaw (Wildcat Of II) I always carried a...

Vulfpeck – Back Pocket

Posts have been a bit thin on the ground between Aapie and I for a number of reasons. Mostly to do with us being old gits with jobs and families (neither of those are bad things by the way and I'm not complaining). additionally, i have been meaning to post this track fooooorrrreevvvvvvvveeeer.   Why? well because it is funky as hell. You have probably heard of Vulfpeck, the American funk/indie band. Their last album got...

Total Eclipse – 2012 DMC Showcase

Complete throwback today, and a break from the norm in that i'm posting a video instead of a track.   Most people who follow this blog will know i used to be massively into turntablism and hip hop (I still am if the truth be told), and like everyone i always enjoyed the legendary New York DJ's the X-Men/X-Ecutioners sets. Leading the crew was Roc Raida and Rob Swift but I was always more into Total...

Sudden Impact feat Jessica Lauren – Clear Space

Ooh its just going to be a quick one tonight and i am taking it back to the early nineties, just at the death of Acid Jazz and the beginnings of big beat/break beat.   I was working from home today and so was checking out some music. Then my son stole my tablet for a while so i went to vinyl for the first time in quite a while and started playing through some...
