Top 5 Tracks of the Week

1. George FitzGerald – Burns: Emotive return for GF with dazzling synths and haunting vocals. Domino’s Double Six doing the business.

2. Dan Shake – Wake, Shake & Bake: Third cut from the London-based producer’s excellently-titled ‘Shakes On A Plane’, out on Lumberjacks In Hell. Akin to most of his repertoire, irresistible disco right here.

3. Dusky – Square Miso: Released Monday just gone, more 90s-influenced, piano house from Dusky. Can’t go wrong.

4 Al Zanders – Song About A Dream: Second cut from Al Zanders’ sample-heavy release on Phonica. The boy done good, watch this space.

5. Lauer – Tyco: Lauer returns to Futureboogie with a three track EP entitled ‘Las Brisas’. Industrial and balearic house from the Tuff City Kids and Talamanca System producer that we’ve come to know and love.

A good week for Tim Sweeney’s Beats in Space radio show. Heavy-hitters Hunee and Michael Mayer both dropped in on the same show. Enjoy:

Top 5 Tracks of the Week

1. Laurence Guy – Windham Hill: After the success of his first full-length on Church, HDP alumnus Laurence Guy dropped this beautifully mellow number last week. Release date TBC.

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:

5. Suzanne Kraft – Nordsee: Irresistible four and a half minutes from Suzanne Kraft, covering Andreas Doreau as part of DEEK Recordings’ compilation ‘Covered In Gloria‘, a collection of covers of the likes of Roy Orbison, Wham and Oasis. Check that out here.

And for the longer listen, Juan Maclean’s kicked off Warm booking agency’s relaunch with podcast number one:

Dusky – Ingrid Is A Hybrid

All eyes on the new one from Dusky, dropped ahead of the release of their forthcoming album, ‘Outer’.

The release coincides with the debut of their new live show, taking place at a sold-out Village Underground this Saturday, and brings together a clean, club-ready production including vocal samples, melodic textures and a sound that’s unmistakably ‘Dusky’.

‘Ingrid Is A Hybrid’ is available via their own 17 Steps.

Human Drizzle: The Playlist, December 2015

Regular readers may be aware that our playlist game has been far from strong of late, and for that we sincerely apologise. However we can assure you it’s worth the wait. There’s a lot of good music on this one.

In the past month Hubie Davison’s disco-sampling ‘Sanctified’ finally got a release on Midland’s ReGraded label, and Future Classic have been busy nurturing new psych-pop band World Champion. Kidnap Kid’s channelling a deeper, nigh-Innervisions style to his production and Auntie Flo released one of our albums of the year.

Plus new tracks from HD faves Lorca, Doc Daneeka, Dusky and a whole lot more. It’s a real goodie. And you can take this overdue bundle of joy as purely an appetiser for our Best of 2015 playlist, due to land in a couple of weeks.

All that’s left is for you to press play and for us to wish you a whole load of peace and goodwill this Christmas. Have a good one.

Dusky – Bitter Lake

You can’t knock their work rate. Having recently played a sell-out 8 hour set at London’s Oval Space and in the midst of their Autumn/Winter tour, Dusky dropped a new three-track EP entitled ‘Lydia’ on their own 17 Steps label last week.

‘Bitter Lake’ is the stand out for us with its infectious, high-energy and ‘hoover-fuelled breakdown’ towards the end. Head over to their SoundCloud to check out the other two.

Dusky – Squeezer

If you’re keen to see the duo in the flesh, they’re playing Oval Space on Saturday 17th October. All night long. More info here.
