Top 5 Tracks of the Week

1. Pacific Coliseum – Ocean City: Breezy sounds coming on London’s Coastal Haze label perfect for sunnier climes ahead. It’s part of an 8-track LP entitled ‘Ocean City’, released 3rd April.

2. Pépe – Belleville: The Brighton-based producer joins Paris-based label Renascence for the forthcoming ‘Motorforce’ EP. This one’s a shimmering highlight of the three-track release.

3. Confidence Man – Bubblegum (Andrew Weatherall Remix): Weatherall adds his wonky disco touch to Australian band Confidence Man’s new single. It’s a trip.

4. Private Agenda – Tender: An emotive and juicy single from Berlin’s Private Agenda, as featured on Royal Athlete’s 5th Various Artists compilation. Pre-orders for more disco and boogie on that release here.

5. Connor Youngblood & Nylo – Everyday: Nashville artist Conner Youngblood is back with his first track of the year with this collaborative effort with Nylo out on Counter Records. It’s summery and feel-good and you get to hear Youngblood flexing his musical skills on the six-string ukulele!

Classixx have teamed up with Daniel T to serve up the ‘Lifetime Groove’ mix series, this one’s filled with gems from Leon Vynehall, John Talabot and Classix themselves.

Top 5 Tracks of the Week

1. Howling – Phases: Flawless supergroup Howling are back with ‘Phases’, the brooding and atmospheric Counter Records-released single from their forthcoming album. They’re playing the Village Underground 15th April, not one to miss.

2. Pépe – Linda’s Retreat: Brighton-based (via Valencia?) producer Pépe dropped this twinkling cascade of goodness earlier on in the week. Release details unknown but catch him at a number of dates at Brighton’s Patterns or Mono, or Honey Moon on the 23rd March for the Londoners (wherever that is).

3. Poolside – Everything Goes: Poolside play this at all of their gigs. Every single one. It’s totally feel-good and they’ve finally self-released it.

4. Auntie Flo – Waiting For A Woman Feat. Anbuley (The Revenge Rework / Dixon Beat Edit): The 2015-released ‘Theory Of Flo’ is getting the remix treatment with efforts from Kornél Kovács, Throwing Shade and Mark E. This Dixon edit of The Revenge’s remix is a highlight from said release, out on the Auntie Flo-affiliated Huntleys & Palmers / Highlife.

5. Roland Tings – Slow Centre: The producer from down under reportedly described his recent single as ‘a 7-minute ride in a cloud. The sound of being hit by lightning. An ode to the pioneers of hypnotic minimalism. A lo-fi computer generated image of a Xylophone rendered in eye splitting high definition.’ It’s that and a whole lot more, featured on the ‘Each Moment A Diamond‘ EP out today on Cascine.

For the longer listen, the latest instalment in the Gottwood mix series comes from Afrobeat producer Dele Sosimi, who with his Afrobeat Orchestra will be headlining the Lawn Stage there this Summer. If this is anything to go by, that could be a festival highlight.

Head over to our SoundCloud or Twitter for more gems from Lane 8 and Kidnap Kid, Solomun and Al Zanders.

David August – The Spell

The formidable David August returns to Ninja Tune’s Counter Records with ‘The Spell’:

As we’ve come to expect from the Berlin-based producer there’s a lot take in, with propulsive breakbeats, dreamy soundscapes and chilling samples all intertwining to create a, naturally, spellbinding tune.

Grab a copy here and keep your ears peeled for ‘A Golden Rush’ on the flip-side.

Short and sweet playlist this month, with loadza good new music to get your teeth into over the Easter bank holiday weekend.

A strong return to the game from David August, Lindstrom and Detroit Swindle. New labels from Kidnap Kid and South London radio/party No Bad Days, a sparkling remix from Four Tet and dreamy cuts from Seb Wildblood and The Range.

Most noticeably Laurence Guy’s popped up on the blog with a storming start to 2016. In just under two months he’ll be heading things up for our party at the Bermondsey Social Club on Friday 13th May. More details on that intimate affair here.
