Sugar Chile Robinson – Christmas Boogie

Every year I try to post up at least 1 Christmas track, so here goes. Every year I bang on about how much I love Christmas. It's true, I do. Like most things some of my best memories of Christmas are of the music that was played, even carols (I really love carols)   Then over the years i have picked up more Christmas songs that I add to the playlist. A few years ago I came across...

Lupe Fiasco – I Gotcha

Yesterday I was reading that Lupe Fiasco is going to retire from music due to some grief he got for making anti-Semitic  remarks on one of his tracks. Can't say I know much about the context. Whatever the case, it made me think back to todays track.   Before I left for work this morning I downloaded I gotcha and then played it pretty much full blast all the way to work. It still sounds...

Archivist – Same High

Sometimes it really does take me a while to get round to posting stuff up. I have come across Archivists stuff before but its only now that i am going to post something as this has been a tune i have been doing some proper laid back cruising too (especially as the traffic is abating a bit in Malta with a couple of bank holidays and the lead up to christmas).   Archivist are a...

Damiano von Erckert & Funkycan – Symphonie Of A Brother

Been listening to a lot of deep house of late, which should not come as a surprise. Anyway, been digging through a lot of older stuff, and stumbled back upon Symphonie of a Brother.   It's a classic, a simple classic, but a classic none the less. A wonderful orchestral strings loop, over a energetic beat with spoken word black empowerment samples. It's essentially a quintessential chi- house style track, and one of my favourites of recent...

Booker T & The MG’s – Soul Limbo

They don't create them tunes like this anymore. So, the other day I was driving to work just randomly playing through stuff on the USB stick in my car when todays track came on and it got me thinking.   Maybe it's because I'm older, maybe it's because the internet has demystified finding out what the name of a track is or who it's by, but I can't think of many theme tunes these days where I...

Rhymefest – One Hand Pushup

I think we’ve been running this blog for about 5 years now and I don't think we've ever featured Rhymefest, which is frankly quite incredible, considering how bloody good he is.I went for One Hand Push because it's not that well known up but could have gone for any number of tracks by Mr Che Smith. Grammy winning Mr Smith i should add.    Rhymefest is probably best known for writing Kanye's wicked "Jesus Walk's" and...

Grand National – Peanut Dreams

Sometimes you've just got to dive into the crates and pluck out some of your favourite tracks and I'm doing that today (maybe even this week) and today opting for the utterly magnificent Peanut Dreams by Grand National.   I can clearly remember hearing Peanut Dreams for the first time time. It was on a mix CD of indie Dance that FourbearsJr gave me when he came to visit. We were sat with a beer and...

The Only Ones – Another Girl Another Planet

Ok, so today's track didn't come on while driving to work, but it did come on via 6 music as I was in a sleepy haze, having breakfast with my son. I was immediately a happy man.   So this is a classic track, no surprises, but when a classic comes on sometimes you just have to go with it. Plus, I have been listening to this song for near on 27 years and I...

Sekuoia – Rayanne (Official Video)

It's been a b*stard of a week, and I've had little time for music and blogging, thankfully i've been getting sent some truly stunning music of late and have decided to roll with Rayanne from Sekuoia, a track i've been sat on for a couple of weeks now, and a track that absolutely needs to be heard.   From the opening arpeggiated synth line the track is mesmerising, building gently to a guitar lead counter melody...

Lust For Youth – Illume

So it's a really quick one from me tonight as I am pretty knackered what with work and a poorly child. But it's a track I've been listening to quite a bit since I stuck it on a Spotify playlist to remind me to check out their new album from 2016.   Im sure many will be familiar with Lust for Youth and their Scandinavian, chillwave, electro pop. For some reason this track has always stuck...
