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.

Gottwood announces line-up

Over the years the festival’s grown and grown, but this year’s initial line-up is looking stronger than ever.

Ranging from the more avant-garde bookings of Extrawelt, Matthew Johnson and Tel Aviv newcomers Red Axes, to exciting live sets from Harvey Sutherland, Ross From Friends and Ishmael Ensemble, the team sheet this year is world class. Gottwood regulars Move D, Wolf Music and Craig Richards will also be returning, as well as a momentous b2b between Erol Alkan and Leon Vynehall.

Bradley Zero, Young Marco and the Black Madonna are just a few of the other highlights of this stomping line-up.

Top 5 Tracks of the Week

1. DJ Yellow – Ride The Rhythm (Ian Pooley Remix): Ian Pooley adds his Midas touch to this Marshall Jefferson cover from Paris-based DJ Yellow. Compost Records doing the business on this party-starter.

2. Joe Goddard – Music Is The Answer: Joe Goddard’s sophomore solo album ‘Electric Lines’ is coming out on 21st April on Greco-Roman/Domino, and with tunes this catchy it’s certainly one to look out for. For the Londoners amongst you, catch his next solo live show at Heaven on 4th May.

3. Thundercat – Show You The Way (feat. Michael McDonald & Kenny Loggins): Thundercat dropped this smooth-as-you-like number featuring the legendary Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald earlier on in the week. It’s a little precursor to his hefty global tour and star-filled LP due out in March – Flying Lotus, Kendrick Lamar and Pharrell are a just a few of the names featured on the team sheet. Stay tuned.

4. Yaki Incipient – Cracked: This is the second release on new label South Street (see Urulu’s offering for the first) and it’s penned by Yaki Incipient, supposedly an already ‘prominent Dutch house and techno artist’. Mystery aliases aside, the tune’s a thumper and we can’t get enough of the infectious disco loop.

5. Marquis Hawkes – The Burning Light: Marquis Hawkes returns to Aus Music on 10th February with ‘The Sweet Temptation’ EP. ‘The Burning Light’ is the first taster of five tracks in total and it’s sounding euphoric.

Mix of the week’s from London-based Renata and her offering to the Gottwood mix series, just over sixty minutes of balearic goodness, global flavours and chugging house:
