Vallis Alps – Young (Zimmer remix)

Reflective tones on the new remix from Parisian producer Zimmer. He’s stretched out ‘Young’ from Seattle-based Vallis Alps, adding another level of dreaminess to the already melancholic tune.

For the longer listen, dip into his recent May mixtape featuring a couple of remixes from the Frenchie, besides gems from Lindstrom, Kenton Slash Demon and Moderat:

Fitzzgerald | Human Drizzle: The Mixtape, March 2016

Our good friends over at Wotnot Music have some exciting plans ahead. With releases on the horizon from K15 and Alphabeats Heaven, and appearances from Mono/Poly and Body San in sight too, 2016 looks set to be a fruitful year to say the least.

Continuing to champion the very best in fresh new talent, their first release this year comes from the Belarusian producer and DJ Fitzzgerald. The London-based label has done us a solid and let us air his excellent, fun-filled mix to coincide with said release. It’s just shy of 50 minutes of vintage disco, funk and boogie courtesy of S.F.B and Patchworks, alongside some more jazzy sounds from Funktion and Jack J amongst others. It’s bound to get your Fridays movin’:

You can check out ‘Genius Of Love’ below, the first cut from the ‘Far From Here’ EP which hit the shelves today. The shuffler of a tune builds around bouncing synth chords and live drums, and it sits nicely with the eclectic sounds of the two other tracks on the EP – there’s Bollywood disco on the ‘Indian Breakfast’, and some funk-infused blues on the Forrest Gump-sampling ‘You Wanna Chocolate’. Both very nice.

Head over to the Wotnot site to grab a copy.

TODD TERJE – Remaster Of The Universe (Permanent Vacation, 2010)

Well this is fun. A mixtape Todd Terje did for Permanent Vacation back in 2010 that might just be the best thing that happens to you today.

Not sure why he’s uploaded it again recently, but it’s crammed with excellent tunes and should guide you through Friday afternoon nicely…

Head here to purchase it. Worth every penny.

Human Drizzle: The Mixtape, Valentines Day Special | Laurence Guy

483668_487617934630936_1682182920_nDespite what you might think from the fast-lovin’ lifestyle we obviously live at Human Drizzle, we’ve got a romantic side too. And so, given it’s the fourteenth day of the second month today, it’s time for HD to dim the lights, undo a couple of buttons on our black satin shirt, expose some chest rug and show you how it’s done…

Well not really, actually. Whilst we’re prepared to shell out for some Peruvian tapas on Valentine’s Day to keep Hallmark happy, we can’t claim to be smooth, suave or in any way ‘sexy’. But that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate it when someone else has got the moves. So, thank you very much to Mr Laurence Guy with his wonderfully louche Valentines mixtape. Very kindly, he’s allowed us to bring this 62 minutes of soul and funk to your attention as something of an exclusive. Good man, that Laurence.

And the man’s got some game. In March 2013, Laurence was picked up by Ben Pearce‘s Purp & Soul and became one of their family, he released tracks on labels such as London’s ISM Records, Manchester’s Purp & Soul & the recent House of Kolour compilation with an EP due on House of Disco.

Just goes to show we’re not exclusively about dancefloor-shredders here at HD, and you’d basically have to be dead not to appreciate the groove on this mixtape. Absolutely perfect for some Valentine’s loving. Enjoy yourself.

Human Drizzle: The Mixtape, January 2014 | Benedict Jackson

We’re excited Benedict Jacksonto announce a new feature on Human Drizzle. Every month we will bring you an exclusive mixtape from one of our favourite artists. First up is Benedict Jackson, whose April EP was the debut release from wave-making London DJ duo (and label), Real Nice (Recordings).

We saw Benedict at Loft Studios before Christmas and fell in love with his sound – which is nicely represented on this mix: from hands-in-the-air disco to moody deep house via Skeelo (yep), it’s the best 90 minutes you will spend today. Tuck in.

Human Drizzle presents…Mighty Mouse, Clancy & Black Magic Disco @ Peckham Palais

Human_Drizzle_flyer_print (1) - Copy

Anticipation at HD HQ for our last party of the year is bubbling up very nicely. In just over two weeks time, we will be welcoming not one, not two, not even three, but four of our favourite DJs to South London’s Peckham Palais. We have Mighty Mouse, Clancy, Black Magic Disco and Hot Karl playing some records for your dancing delectation on Friday 1st November.

Tickets are currently a steal at £5 a pop, so grab ‘em now from the link below, and tell all your mates over here.

THE LINE-UP…

As regular readers of HD will know, we’ve been big fans of Mighty Mouse since day one. Over the past few years he’s carved out an excellent reputation for penning feel-good disco house tunes, and we cannot wait to have him headline proceedings on 1st November. Here’s a taster:

Besides his original work, he’s started a compilation series entitled ‘Disco Circus’, has released a string of consistently good mixtapes and been responsible for countless remixes. More recently however, he has formed Du Tonc with Matt Van Schie from Van She. They’ve released one mixtape and written four excellent original tracks, all released on their own label Night Film. ‘Darkness’ could quite possibly be our pop tune of the year. We are stoked to have him playing.

Next up we have Human Drizzle Presents alumnus Clancy. Having totally smashed it at the Bussey Building for our party back in April, we thought we’d get the budding London via Manchester producer back for another slot. He’s released a long list of free-to-download tunes before being recruited by Dirt Crew Recordings to put out his debut EP on their new imprint S P I E L. He’s going from strength to strength.

We also welcome Black Magic Disco all the way from Australia. Having had releases on Toolroom Records and Pole Position Records, he makes 90s garage and house-infused tracks which should be perfect for Peckham’s former department store. He’s known to compile quite the mixtape too, have a listen:

Warming up proceedings from 10pm will be the enigmatic newcomer, Hot Karl.

There’s a whole load of fun to be had. Bag your ticket now and come join us.

Friday 1st November, 10pm – 5am, Peckham Palais.

Tink – Can I (Feat. How to Dress Well)

Thank you, technology.

Courtesy of a half-decent Macbook mic and THE INTERNET, we now have a How to Dress Well verse on suddenly-everywhere Tink’s ‘Can I’.

‘Can I’ was tucked away in the Chicago youngster’s first mixtape, ‘Winter’s Diary’, and is worth hearing in context if you fancy a longer listen. It’s no surprise that Tom Krell wanted in on this action as it’s right up his street: dreamy RnB for late night listening.

And here’s Tink’s recent contribution to supergroup Future Brown’s ‘Wanna Party’:

All good stuff.
