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.

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.
