Stiff Little Fingers: Live Review

Sometimes, but not often, a gig can confound expectations. Blink-182 at the Vans Warped Tour in 1998 is the perfect example of this not occurring. It was just as terrible as you expected it to be, whereas Toto in Argentina was the antithesis of this;

Whilst Battles played their gig at Max Watts in mid-February and it is now early May, it may appear as though I haven’t necessarily been bang on in terms of punctuality. Or so it would seem from the outside looking in.

Janet – Alright (Kayper Remix)

On first listen to Kayper’s remix of the classic ‘Alright’ by Janet Jackson, I was hooked.  After multiple further listens, this is dragging me away with the fairies on how good it is.  This mix enlightens the original but keeps all of the bones that you loved on the original release.

Jean Jacques Smoothie – 2 People (Blonde Version)

Back in 1998, Jean Jacques Smooth took the 70s track ‘Inside My Love’ by Minnie Riperton (famously used in the Jackie Brown soundtrack) and turned into an epic 90s anthem.  Crank forward to 2016 and DJ/Production duo Blonde have taken the JJS version, put it in a blender and made it even smoother.

FMLYBND’s new track ‘OH’ is a little bit funk, a little bit Earth Wind & Fire and almost borderlines on a Lion Babe track.  I love it and it wasn’t what I was expecting when I hit the play button.
