Latest entries

Marcus Marr – High Times

We’re a little late on this one but my god how much I love thee track ‘High Times’.  I’ve had the edit version of this on practically 24/7 since I first heard it last week.  Bliss. Bliss. Bliss.

Say bonjour to some 4 track Histrionics EP goodness from Shmuck the Loyal.  There’s a bit of fire going on here.
Nora En Pure - Trailblazer

Nora En Pure – Trailblazer

I do not know where Nora En Pure finds the time for these class new tracks.  ‘Trailblazer’ is a dark atmospheric deep house track that would go perfect with an Ibizan or a Bali sunset.
Charlz and Lliam + Latroit - Feather

Charlz and Lliam + Latroit – Feather

Connie Constance - Boring EP

Connie Constance – Boring EP

Connie Constance just took me back to the days of listening to early Vivian Green, Estelle and Alicia Keys.  My goodness this new Boring EP is quite the contrary from Connie Constance.
Mozado - On The Daily (feat. Rosé)

Mozado – On The Daily (feat. Rosé)

If you want a track to take away your Monday blues, look no further than Mozado’s ‘On The Daily’ featuring the delightful vocals of Rosé.
JAMO - S.O.S (feat. YOUNGSOUL)

JAMO – S.O.S (feat. YOUNGSOUL)

If JAMO’s calling an S.O.S. we are gladly going to answer the distress call.  New track ‘S.O.S’ is a beacon of electronica shining a light into our December when everything is turning into Christmas tunes.
UBER KINGS - Keeping The Fat

UBER KINGS – Keeping The Fat

If you’re a De La Soul fan, you’ll recognise the Bob James’s ‘Sign of the Times’ sample used here on ‘Keeping The Fat’.  Not only has the fat not been trimmed, it has been seared to a crisp trap’tastic level. It’s as if Pennywise did the remix!

Ibiza Classics Live Review: Pete Tong & Heritage Symphony Orchestra

Ibiza Classics Live Review: Pete Tong & Heritage Symphony Orchestra

Pete Tong (MBE) and the Heritage Symphony Orchestra were in Melbourne last week to play Ibiza Classics at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl and to say they lifted the roof off of the bowl is an understatement.

There ain’t ‘Nothing Better’ than cranking the new track up from Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo.  This is pure fire!

Maya Jane Coles - Take Flight

Maya Jane Coles – Take Flight

Maya Jane Coles gives us her huge album Take Flight and this absolutely soars.  I’m usually not a huge fan of albums that have this many tracks on it but I’m quite happy to indulge and be greedy on this killer collection, it is that good!
Oliver - Full Circle

Oliver – Full Circle

Oliver drop their album Full Circle and they’ve gone all Chromeo vs. Justice on us on their 15 track offering that is a delight to the ears.
Basenji — Don't Let Go feat. Mereki

Basenji — Don’t Let Go feat. Mereki

Basenji’s ‘Don’t Let Go’ featuring Mereki is an absolute breath of fresh air and we are inhaling it all.  With Mereki on vocals, this is in early Grimes territory for sure!
Halcyon Drive - The Birds

Halcyon Drive – The Birds

Halcyon Drive go from strength to strength on their new track ‘The Birds’.  This the first taste of their debut album and I’m very much liking what I am hearing on this one. It’s very slick indeed but not overproduced.

Carl Louis - Memory Lane

Carl Louis – Memory Lane

Listening to Carl Louis’ ‘Memory Lane’ is like drifting back in time to the best Royksopp, Groove Armada, Lemon Jelly and Bent had to offer and rolling it all up into one absolutely exquisite package.  I have goosebumps just listening to this now.
Moon Boots - Never Get To You (Ft. Antony & Cleopatra)

Moon Boots – Never Get To You (Ft. Antony & Cleopatra)

The album First Landing by Moon Boots is quite possibly one of the greatest things you’ll hear this year.  If you dig further into the goldmine from this 10 track joy, you’ll find the biggest gem of all on ‘Never Get To You’ featuring Antony & Cleopatra.
Groove Armada - Keep Rock In

Groove Armada – Keep Rock In

Deep House joy ahoy! Groove Armada’s ‘Keep Rock In’ is criminally too short but that’s the only negative here. Hypnotic house is the name of the game here and ‘Keep Rock In’ wins.
Geowulf - Drink Too Much

Geowulf – Drink Too Much

Geowulf’s ‘Drink Too Much’ is hands down the best bassline on a track we’ve heard for some time.  If this is beach pop, I need you to take me to the sand.  This is perfect.
Anna of The North - Money

Maurizio Colella aka. EDX knows how to drop a track to celebrate his quarter century milestone. ‘Daybreak’ is all class and an absolutely killer house track.

Douchka - Infantile EP

Douchka – Infantile EP

Douchka’s Infantile EP is anything but childish.  It’s quite a mature offering from this French artist. 
Wilsonn - Thankful

Wilsonn – Thankful

Wilsonn’s ‘Thankful’ sounds like a hybrid of Dan Black and Porter Robinson.  It’s dreamy but also quite a pumping track indeed.
Viceroy - Improvise feat. Tom Aspaul

Viceroy – Improvise feat. Tom Aspaul

Viceroy’s ‘Improvise’ is an anthem and a half that should make you think twice about living your life by design.  I’m a firm believer in improvising and ‘winging it’.
