2. Benjamin Fröhlich – Dream City: This is the stirring opener to the second part of Benjamin Fröhlich’s Rude Movements EP series, and if the first is anything to go by… It’s out on his own equally-good label, Permanent Vacation.
3. Al Zanders – There Is Rhythm: Phonica Records doing the business on Al Zanders’ next release, a two-track 12″ entitled ‘There Is Rhythm’. Hold tight for the synthy stabs after the two minute mark (and general percussive mayhem throughout). Lovely stuff.
4. Kiwi – Marmora’s Theme (Tuff City Kids Remix): Tuff City Kids serve up a tasty piano house remix for Kiwi’s first outing on Dusky’s label 17 Steps.
And whilst we’re on it, delve into Kiwi’s Beats in Space radio show from a couple of days back:
