Pick a Piper – Cinders and Dust (Grown Folk Remix)

Anyone else feel a bit sullen today? A little subdued perhaps? We find that this new remix from Montreal twosome Grown Folk helps light the spark again:

Their rework of ‘Cinders and Dust’, originally sired by Caribou drummer Brad Weber’s Pick A Piper project, is a piece of electro-pop bolstered by some atmospheric, low-end synths. And it’s really good.

We haven’t heard much from Drew and Brendan (the aforementioned Grown Folk) recently, besides some production work for HD’s favourite cloud rappers Main Attrakionz, but this remix plus their EP on San Francisco label Icee Hot, have whet our appetite for more in 2013.

Skream – Let It Go

The evolution of Skream continues…

Out with the dubstep, out with the disco, in with pared-back house almost straying into electronica. He’s certainly versatile. ‘Let It Go’ is a soundcloud treat following on the heels of his new label launch. Of Unsound Mind kicked off with a three track EP by Motions, one half of Grown Folk:

It’s a good start.

Purity Ring – Amenamy (Jon Hopkins Remix)

Two of the poppier acts putting out electronica have come together here, for your aural enjoyment.

Serial collaborator and heir to Eno’s throne Jon Hopkins has worked his magic on Canadian duo Purity Ring’s ‘Shine’, with beautiful results. Listen to it, it’ll make you feel good:

Both collaborators have been on the mixes too recently, with Purity Ring stepping into the Boiler Room in Montreal (with D’Eon and Grown Folk – massive) and Jon Hopkins helming June’s FACT mix. They’re both excellent, espesh Jon’s, and worth a slice of your morning. The FACT mix can be found here and t’other is below:

Human Drizzle: The Playlist, July 2013

June = Glastonbury. It felt like it was literally the only thing people talked about. In a shameless attempt to piggyback on that success, here’s our latest playlist, at least some of which was made by artists who may have been at Glastonbury! We’re essentially an official event partner.

Aaaaand, it’s time to start snapping up those final early bird tickets for Human Drizzle presents… They, quite literally, won’t be around forever. £6 to hear from Copy Paste Soul (who smashed it at Fire last week with David August), Vanilla Ace and Ben Gomori. It’s excitingly close now:

And here are our Top 5 tracks of the month:

1. Detroit Swindle – The Make Up: Toe-tapping, head-nodding banger unleashed as the Dutch duo’s debut release on their new label, Heist Recordings.

2. Clean Bandit – Dust Clears: A melting pot of classical strings, catchy hooks and rhythm and blues, this innovative outfit and HD favourite continue to go from strength to strength.

3. Pick A Piper – Cinders And Dust (Grown Folk Remix): Grown Folk concocted this stirring rework of Caribou drummer’s side project Pick A Piper. Fully bolstered with low end synths, vocal loops and charming reverb.

4. Lane 8 – Be Mine: Catchy, sun-kissed jam from one of our favourite rising US producers, Lane 8. Could go on and on (and on), this.

5. Alex Metric & Jacques Lu Cont – Safe With You: Straight up banger from euphoric dance dream team. Vocal from Nikki and The Dove’s Malin feels warm inside.
