Julio Bashmore – Pelican

You can rely on Bashmore for a Friday anthem and he’s given us another here. Kind of.
The B-side to the thumping ‘Husk’, ‘Pelican‘ is more of a low-end haunted house theme tune. That isn’t to say it’s going to send you spiralling, it’s still very much a scene setter for the weekend. ‘Husk/Pelican’ is out on 2nd December on Julio’s own Broadwalk label.
If you fancy seeing tunes like the above live, why not go see Julio on his upcoming tour? Makes sense. He’s playing at some super secret locations in Bristol, London, Leeds and Manc in February, and tickets went on sale today. We’ve got ours already, get involved.

Boys Noize – What You Want (Chromeo Remix)

You better get set for the killer EP that is ‘Ich R U/What You Want’, coming out on 14th January from a German producer called Alexander Ridha. Boys Noize to the rest of us.

The new EP will feature remixes from heavyweights Jacques Lu Cont, Jimmy Edgar, D.I.M and this one from Chromeo. Not a combo we’d expect, the Canadian duo’s syrupy electro-funk adds a hop, skip and a jump to the hard-hitting original. Heaps of fun this.

Panama – It’s Not Over (Dave DK Dub)

We didn’t think this tune by Aussies Panama could get much better.

The original’s a fun-filled pop song in its own right. Then, as featured on these pages a few weeks back, Ejeca went and made an ice cool garage rework of it that’s infectious to say the least.

Now it’s time for Dave DK to step into the ring. And he’s delivered a knockout, with nine minutes of bliss that we highly recommend you get lost in, ASAP.

Goldroom – Sweetness Alive (feat. SLL)

Regular readers will know that we are huge fans of the one they call Goldroom. His music may not be the most challenging or innovative, but it just sounds great, from his own productions to some glorious remixes. He hails from California, and you can tell. There is a sunny escapism to his work: his own advice on ‘Sweetness Alive’ is to “close your eyes and let this take you somewhere nicer.” Aphex Twin it ain’t, but when it sounds this good, it’s hard to care.

…and here are two he made earlier:

fLako – Mating Dance


fLako has graced these pages before with some repping from older heads but this young Chilean, still in the up and coming phase of his producing life, is now coming to the fore with a new EP, ‘Eclosure’, released this week on London label Five Easy Pieces.
Mating Dance’ is quite literally a jazzy little number, starting with some off-beat instrumentals before seguing into more familiar riddims:
Here’s another cut from the EP, ‘Honey Drips‘, reinforcing the Flying Lotus comparisons:
‘Mating Dance’ is available to download for free from xlr8r and we advise stocking up on this guy’s tunes now, they’re only going to get more sought after…

WHP 12 MIX 013 – George Fitzgerald X RA

Stompin’ little mix here from George FitzGerald ahead of his début appearance this weekend at The Warehouse Project.

Featuring tracks from Shadow Child, Locked Groove, Dusky and of course a couple by the man himself, this is the perfect warm-up (for his appearance this weekend, of just for your normal, less good weekend).

Isaac Tichauer – I Forgive You

Here’s the new one from Sydney-based Isaac Tichauer, once again providing some quality deep house music. Peppered with his usual dose of soulful vocals and tropical charm, this one builds at quite the perfect rate.

The kind people at French Express are giving this away for FREE. Click here if you want it in your life for good. (You should BTW).

Tomas Barfod – November Skies (Jerome LOL & Nite Jewel Remixes)

Friends of Friends are releasing an EP of remixes of Tomas Barfod’s ‘November Skies’ on 26th November and here is the piercingly beautiful effort from Jerome LOL.

A real delight, we hope you’ll agree. The co-owner of label Body High gives the original a whimsical edge in re-pitching Nina Kinert’s vocals and stretching out proceedings a little. However not as impressively robust as another stand-out from the EP in Nite Jewel’s rework.

Both are very good reasons to revisit the enchanting original:

Pyramid – Black Road

What is it with France and electro? This track from mercurial Gallic outfit Pyramid is very much in the Daft Punk, Justice, Alex Gopher, early Ed Banger mould – with crisp production, accessible melodies and percussion that is bound to get you moving. It builds and fades delightfully over the course of a sunny, 80s-inspired four minutes – and overall it’s a lovely stick of dancefloor dynamite.

Their previous production, the excellent ‘The Frontier’, made it onto an HD playlist – but not the blog itself, which is something of a travesty. Here, let’s remedy that.

Ultraista – Gold Dayzz (Maribou State Remix)

With the tidal wave of trap and hurricane of house, we haven’t listened to enough of this kind of music recently:
London-based duo Maribou State have continued to surf the momentum from their recent EP ‘Scarlett Groove’, out on Southern Fried Records, to put together this really, really lovely remix of Ultraista’s upcoming release, ‘Gold Dayzz’. Ultraista are the new outfit of Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich and he’s taken their impeccable taste in electronic music with him, signing off on this meandering, comforting, tuneful five minutes of electronica.
Maribou State also kicked off a new mix series last week, ‘The Honey Collection’ and it’s a perfect pm listen. Up-and-comer fLaKo makes an appearance, as does old-timer Burial, and you can catch some of the above EP in there too:
Soothing stuff.
