After three weeks of living like a 75-year-old man who listens to the radio and drinks scotch in the dark, I finally got the internet in my new apartment. What does that mean to you? Well it means I can start posting regularly again and from my point view, it means less time pretend shooting the inner-city geese prowling the canal outside. Vicious bastards. What tune am I posting to accompany my triumphant come back? The Wideboys London mix of T2′s ‘Heartbroken’ of course. Probably not to everyone’s taste, but a bit of a banger.
After two successful releases on Pictures — Moonlight and Drag Queen — Steve Martin EP is Bobby Champs’ debut on Hypercolour. It actually dropped in November, but I only got around to pressing play a couple of days ago because I can be a lazy bastard. Which, dear employer who may be reading this, is a statement made purely for low-quality comedic effect.
Frequent collaborators John Talabot and Pional have once again come together to produce music that makes me the opposite of angry. This time it has arrived in the form of an eight and a half minute remix of The xx’s “Chained” from their recent album Coexist. Inspired by The Streets’ melancholy yet euphoric classic “Blinded by the Lights”, this is going to take you places. Not like your Uncle does in his mini-van when he has to run “errands” and drop off “foo-foo dust” to his “friends”, but like…make you feel good and use your dusty brain.
Available to download for a limited time only — although let’s face it, it will be uploaded to infinite sources by various kind souls after this period — Disclosure are offering a remix of the Artful Dodger classic “Please Don’t Turn Me On”. The tune has been around in various incarnations for a while now, surfacing in full form last month, but now you can call it your own for the princely sum of a mouse click. It’s like bloody Christmas or something.
Apologies for the current trend of starting posts with ‘it’s been 2 weeks’ but… It’s been 2 weeks since Five Easy Pieces released fLako’s Eclosure EP. Apparently, Mating Dance could be classified as jazz, which is fantastic news. This is basically my idea of perfect music; who can decline the offer of happy-go-lucky tribal patterns, ambling strings and angelic vocals floating through your brain machine? Not to mention the “is that a vocal or a synth” progressions that take over.
If you’re not convinced, check fLako’s IA mix after the jump and go trekking.
