For the forward planners amongst you, our next two nights will be on Friday 5th June and Friday 25th September. Stick them in your diary and smoke them.

And in the meantime, give our latest monthly playlist a spin:

Ten Walls – Sparta & Blue Orphan

Ten Walls is back, and he’s brought his tuba with him. After the brutality of November’s ‘Chains And Shackles’, the title track on new EP ‘Sparta’ reprises the grandiose brass that made ‘Walking With Elephants’ such a classic.

B-side ‘Blue Orphan’ explores similarly epic territory, and you can expect to hear a fair amount of both this summer. Compelling stuff from Lithuania’s finest.

The Golden Boy – The Promise (Walker & Royce Remix)

Slowing down The Golden Boy’s original, Brooklyn-based Walker & Royce dreamy remix of ‘The Promise’ is one for these sunnier climes. Eton Messy doing the business on this gem of a relase, get ’em both here.

Slow Learner – Tyranny Of Fun EP

London-based FINA Records’ latest offering is worth your time, it’s a debut EP called ‘Tyranny of Fun’ by Slow Learner.

Whether it’s the warm, feel-good tones of ‘Cupboard Love’, or the down-tempo, end-of-the-night cooler, ‘Honey’, there’s something for everyone in this mixed affair. The mysterious producer from the south coast also ventures into much darker territory on ‘Skin Horse’, wonderfully described as a ‘growler of track’ by the FINA team.

The EP’s out now, head over to Juno to make it yours.

Huxley – I Want You (Deetron Remix)

As premiered by Pete Tong last Friday night, here’s the beast of a remix of Huxley’s ‘I Want You’ by Deetron, due for release on the mighty Aus Music. For something a little more, light-hearted, feast your ears on the Swiss producer’s recent efforts on Todd Terje’s funky ‘Alfonso Muskedunder’:

For yet MORE Deetron, have a peak at his April residency shows on Rinse FM. They’re class.

Chet Faker – 1998 (András Morning mix)

Slow and steady one to ease you into the week. Track’s called ‘1998’ by Chet Faker. Fellow Australian producer András has remixed it as part of the 1998 Melbourne Edition, a collection of remixes by, you guessed it, producers from Melbourne. This so called ‘Morning Mix’ is full of balearic vibes, and could be just the ticket for your Mondays:

Lindstrøm – Home Tonight (Fort Romeau remix)

As if releasing a high-calibre album on the excellent Ghostly International wasn’t enough, South London’s Fort Romeau has found the time to rustle up this remix of Norwegian disco maestro Lindstrom’s recent single, ‘Home Tonight’. We’re writing this to tell you it’s good. Really good.

The original’s a mover in itself, but the producer formally known as Mike Greene has taken it one step further here. The gradual synth escalation throughout, softened by the recurring piano keys both at beginning and end, make this some of the best eight minutes you’re likely to listen to today.

Jack Priest – SlothBoogie Guestmix #43

For those residing in the British Isles (hiya), you may have noticed a yellow, shiny thing in the sky this past week or two. Do not be alarmed – instead, queue up this mix from emerging Bristolian, Jack Priest. The 43rd in SlothBoogie’s Guestmix series, this set comes off the back of some funner-than-fun edits on Wolf + Lamb’s imprint (‘Don’t You Want Me’, anyone?) and it’s the perfect soundtrack to that overly-optimistic day party you’ve organised this weekend. Everyone will get really into it just as you’re transferring the sodden jerk chicken from the barbecue to the oven. 👌

Anyway, Mr Priest says his taste ‘leans towards slower burning, genre sidestepping electronic music’ and his sets contain ‘abstruse pop records, melodic voyages and stories for the heartsore.’ But this time he has largely eschewed the introspection in favour of wall-to-wall summer vibes. And who can blame the man?

Human Drizzle: The Playlist, April 2015

Spring is here. A time for new beginnings, fresh starts and, most importantly, our April playlist. Jamie xx is on fire, TCTS is becoming a firm favourite, T.Williams has collaborated with MJ Cole, and just listen to the way that Fort Romeau track goes through the gears. The section from 04:20 is something to behold.

We can be no more emphatic than to say that if this playlist were an emoji, it would be 🔥.

Kate Bush – Running Up That Hill (Real Nice’s Big Bush Edit)

It’s two weeks until Human Drizzle Presents crashes into your lives again and here’s the tastiest of tasters to get the juices flowing:

Headliners Real Nice have pulled together a ‘Big Bush’ edit of Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill’ and it’ll get the legs pumping. It shows off the eclecticism we’re looking forward to hearing more of on the 25th, with a weighty dancefloor spirit to boot.

The best bit? They’ve made it available ALL FOR FREE in anticipation of our journey to Bar A Bar. Basically, it’d be rude not to download it and even ruder not to pick up a ticket for Spring’s breakout party.

See you and Real Nice down the front.
