If you didn’t get chance to listen/watch the excellent Mixmag Lab from Ben Pearce and Shadow Child yesterday then get your ears around this. Jesus; the energy!!!!
Ben Pearce’s set blew me away, and got me revisiting his tracks. I found this little gem, and would like to share it with y’all (Black Orange Juice on the collab too – nice)
OFF recordings have offered a lovely little free download compilation to celebrate hitting loadsa loadsa Facebook followers. Great takes on some classics like Minnie Ripperton and Kelis, and the humming by Mr McConaughey in The Wolf of Wall Street.
It pleases me greatly to include a new Tom Demac remix as TotD this week. He’s added his signature deeper-than-deep baseline and slidey-slidey sounds to the lovely vocals of 22-year-old Charlotte OC‘s Hangover from the Colour My Heart EP on Stranger Records. Thanks to Mixmag for this beaut. Look out for the Moodymann remix too.
Eskimo Twin Tim Clerkin has been powering through the first half of 2014 with his own brand of driving, twisted synthy techno, brought to us via his Heretic moniker and not one but two releases in the last two months.
He started with the clangy, robotic Geodesic EP on Days of Being Wild, and his latest, A Curse EP is due for release on Abode on 24 March. The title track harks back to the very best of nineties rave with its muffled chime riff, served as an accompaniment to Christopher Hitchens’ spoken condemnation of the concept of religion, while Sharia Law is an out-and-out acid build. Remixes from Club Bizarre and Abode label boss XY-Me.
Get your lug holes round this.
Today’s TftD is brought to you by Turbo Recordings, with a free download of ZZT (Tiga and Zombie Nation) with Givin In.
I’ve been away lapping up some sun in Australia, with only the (excellent) new Broken Bells album to entertain me, so I had a little shufty around for some notable new bits and pieces to get me through the first day back to work.
The White Lamp is back! Ride with You is coming to Hotflush on 27 January.
Thanks to XLR8R for this little beauty from Cock & Swan, with Graintable responsible for the remix. The original is a dreamy slow burner, but this one is transformed with that nasty little drop added at one minute, which when combined with a pretty female vocal most certainly does the trick for me today.
I like lyrics about being high. I don’t know why; I just do.
New Metronomy needs no introduction, I’m only sad that we have to wait until March 2014 for the new album Love Letters. SUCH a sexy voice.
