Big smiles all around! The winter drought is over. Yay!
Cue the new / B-side Rustie track making nice vibes down the ears. Free download too if you like your trap infused dance music. Sounding amazing on a good set of speakers. Sub woofers ahoy!
Seems like someone’s put the heavy filter on Sigor Ros and it’s sounding fab (darling). Oh yes – cinematic, epic. Gorgeous! I still can’t be arsed to find out what the lyrics mean, but this is a 7 minute piece of music to sit back and absorb. Sounding great in headphones on the commute or on a nice soundsystem of an evening. I’m interested to hear more of these guys now. The initial fad has died and they’ve reinvented themselves slightly. Very nice.
I remember first playing ‘Default’ by Django Django. Bloody loved it! Very 6 music fair dos, but it sounded great. Exciting and with their trademark sound. I love the imagery this type of music conjures. Mexican hats, horse riding, car chases, smoking over-sized cigars, Tarentino…the list goes on. All very cool for day dreams.
I’m waiting for Shlohmo to do something wrong in his work. Teaming up with Jeremih and writing ‘Bo Peep’ hasn’t been bad, so it just continues his upward trend as a rad dance / electro producer from LA. Another one! Love this track 🙂
In the same way I got goosebumps listening to Deptford Goth for the first time, Dems are beautifully atmospheric and vocally brilliant. If this summer time ever arrives, I can imagine evenings in the park being filled with tracks like this for a soundtrack. And as a Londoner…bit proud that they come from round me way obvs.
Now, Raffertie is one to watch. Covering Mariah Carey in a weird dance / EDM style. I wasn’t sure what to make of it first time, but it’s one of those songs you need to hear and decide for yourself.
And one last note for Kent indie / electro band Team Morale and how good their latest offering to the BBC Uploader is. Hopefully they’ll be posting it on their soundcloud soon, but you’ve got 73 other tracks to keep you company in the meantime ranging from riff driven hooks to chill out ambient beats.
