This is so very new I don’t have an official sample yet, but last night the lovely Brodinski chatted to Para One on his Radio 1 In New DJs we Trust show, and featured his beautiful nostalgic piano number You Too, forthcoming on Marble. It’s a ‘live’ version of You, which was also pretty lovely, but some added piano just tops it off.
Soothe that hangover with a nice bouncy little live mix from Treasure Fingers.
Like many of my friends, I welcome the return of Phoenix with open arms. The lead single Entertainment from the new album Bankrupt was remixed by the likes of Hot Natured and Grizzly Bear, and for the second; Trying to Be Cool, they ran a remix competition with The Creators Project. You can find the stems on their soundcloud page here.
I’m delighted to see there’s a contribution from Breakbot, and as well as being great it is also a free download. Little present in time for the weekend.
Bonus video: Phoenix and R Kelly at Coachella this year…sounds like they improved Ignition no end.
Possible contender for the most beautiful record ever written? Will Saul (under his new ‘dark-pop’ moniker Close) introduced the Dusky remix of this track on with B.Traits on Annie Mac’s show on Radio 1 on Friday, and both are completely amazing.
His Aus Music label seems to be where I’ve been buying most of my tracks for a while now; consistently releasing greats like Ejeca, Midland and George Fitzgerald and the Will Saul Essential Mix is still on repeat for both me and Emily. Well done that man.
Buy the whole EP 24 June.

Since Grimmy chose Real as his next big thing and it sold 30,000 copies, Gorgon City have been super busy. Not only is Intentions/Cycles out and about all over the place (and great) but they’re touring more or less everywhere and it seems everywhere they play has a new Gorgon City mix on their website. Fabric, Parklife, Vice… See what I mean:
It’s been a while since I’ve written about Cassian but he’s one of those people whose mixes you can play even when the people you’re with aren’t really keen on house music, or it’s not really an appropriate occasion (I always get told off for playing banging techno when I’m hosting a dinner party). They’re nice builders, melody-friendly, and always with a little bang at the end.
He’s just finished a mammoth tour of the Americas and the title implies that he’s pretty happy to finally be home.
His new track On & On is a free download too, and pretty yummy:
This is SO DAMN GOOD. I still love how utterly dirty Catz n Dogz play, when Greg and Voitek are so polite and mild-mannered to chat to. Even tracks like their They Frontin’ which are already filthy, are stripped out here until there’s just pure dirt. I’m not sure anyone else could mix in HNNY‘s sample of Brandy and Monica’s The Boy is Mine and still make it sound cool.

My music homework – actually listening to all the things I dig out or get sent – gets done when I’m sat at my desk concentrating on something else. Entire mixes get lost unless they are sufficiently banging to stop me getting my proper work done (!)
So it was nice today when this, from 19-year-old LA-based Justin Jay snuck into my earlobes and gave me a little desk-rave break.
Out on Dirtybird now.
