Human Drizzle: The Playlist, March 2016

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.

For now, tuck into this and enjoy x

Four Tet – Parallel Jalebi (Hudson Mohawke RMX)

As part of the ongoing appetite-whetting for his forthcoming album, Hudson Mohawke has been spraying a few new tunes around:

He dropped four new fellas on Benji B’s Radio 1 show (listen here), including the above remix of Four Tet’s juddering ‘Parallel Jalebi’. As a festive treat this is now available a gratis from LuckyMe’s excellent Advent Calendar. It’s better than the cheap chocolate you got out of yours this morning.

Claude Speeed – Prove You Exist

So, you know how we wuz luvin’ that Claude Speeed track about a month or so back? Well, there’s more. A whole album more.

To mark its release, he’s done a couple of things. First, he’s put out a trippy vid for the final track of the album, ‘Prove You Exist’. Described as the monumental crescendo of his debut album, it’s more soundscape than bangin’ house track, moving more towards the modern classical influences he regularly cites:

Along the same lines is the LuckyMe man’s FACT mix, a hypnotic 90 minutes of forward-looking electronica:

As one established music critic of some renown said, Claude’s output is “a symphony for festival down-time”.

Claude Speeed – Tiger Woods & LuckyMe podcast

LuckyMe have put together a playlist for your Friday!

Packed with all you need to get you through to the weekend, it’s a sonic journey. All served with a gentle Glaswegian lilt.

The first tune out the traps is ‘Tiger Woods’ by RBMA graduate and poly-musician Claude Speeed. Arriving at his upcoming ‘My Skeleton’ EP via American Men (a math rock band) and a couple of drone mixes, he’s settled on an eccentric, percussive sound that draws you in.

He’s declared composer Steve Reich an influence and you can certainly hear the atypical rhythms coming through. If this last sentence feels supplementary, it’s because it’s a vehicle to brag that we have tickets to see the man himself at the Proms later this year. So there.

Jacques Greene – Phantom Vibrate EP

FINALLY. The new Jacques Greene EP, ‘Phantom Vibrate’ is out, on Glasgow’s finest, LuckyMe Records. The almost-Gospel like ‘Feel What’ was uploaded yesterday, joining track number one from the EP, ‘No Excuse’ – a heart on the sleeve slice of future RnB.

Both below, grab the EP here.

Sky Ferreira – You´re Not The One (Cid Rim Remix)

LuckyMe’s Austrian knob-twiddler Cid Rim has turned his focus to everyone’s favourite grunge-pop star Sky Ferreira (well, it’s not going to be Taylor Momsen, is it?) in his reworking of her ‘You’re Not the One’:

It’s a sparkly affair held up by a hip hop beat, and it crackles along at a fair old pace. Something of a Viennese waltz, you might say!

We also hear talk of a remix of Jacques Greene’s pre-release from his upcoming EP, ‘No Excuses’ but can’t seem to dig it out. Gives us a good reason to post the original though, which is an appetite-whetter:

Enjoy.

Sampha – Can’t Get Close (Jacques Greene Edit)

11 days into the Lucky Me Advent Calendar, and today’s offering ain’t too shabby at all.

It’s Jacques Greene’s edit of Sampha’s ‘Can’t Get Close’, a track written for the South Londoner’s father who died when he was just nine years old. The original’s an emotive piece and Greene keeps the important vocal intact, but extends it out and adds a most welcome piano loop. Lovely.

And the original:

S-Type – Rosario

Couple of LuckyMe gems here. Straight up diamonds, no rough involved. 

First up is another uplifting piece of video game electronica from Glasgow’s S-Type, ripped from labelmate Eclair Fifi’s Radio One show last week. ‘Rosiari’ hits the electronic shelves soon, all packaged up as LM017: 

Also getting an airing on the ‘In New DJs We Trust’ starlet’s show was the full-length version of HudMo’s remix of Jackson and his Computer Band’s ‘Vista’: 

Both are hi-vis, high fizz bursts of dance music, and they deserve a listen.

Claude Speeed – Inside (Sonar 2013)

Quick post, long tune.

We’re always on the look-out for LuckyMe output, and that stretched as far as what could ungenerously be called the interval music at Red Bull Music Academy’s SonarDome stage (at Sonar Festival, duh) last week. Claude Speeed (who’s also a RBMA graduate) has put together 17 minutes of theatrical electronica. A symphony for festival down-time:

It’s almost, ALMOST, like we were there.

Jacques Greene – On Your Side EP

As teased yesterday, we’re getting a new Jacques Greene EP! Yessss.

LuckyMe will be putting out the ‘On Your Side’ EP in June and it’ll be made up of the previously scribed-on ‘Quicksand’, a new one called ‘Faithful’ featuring the dulcet tones of Oliver Day Soul, and THIS:

Premiered on Zane Lowe yesterday, it’s EXACTLY what Jacques does best. He’s even gone so far as to pull in fellow R&B aficionado Tom Krell (aka How to Dress Well) on vocals, beefing up that half of his signature house-R&B blend.

Here’s Quicksand too, because you deserve it:
