Human Drizzle: The Playlist, October 2017

Ain’t done one of these for a while now have we?

All our favourites from the last few weeks in one easy-to-use playlist. Highlights would have to include Pépe’s debut on Lobster Theremin, Dan Shake’s new one from the the brilliantly-names ‘Shakes On A Plane’ and a couple of tracks from Permanent Vacation’s excellent new compilation.

There’s also Jessie Ware-like smoothness from newcomers Silk House, D.I.S.C.O from the likes of Junktion and thatmanmonkz and a couple of forthcoming tracks on Future Classic to lighten the mood too.

Top 5 Tracks of the Week

1. John Talabot – The Strange Silence: Talabot’s back producing the goods in a big way. This one’s the opening track on Permanent Vacation’s 10th Anniversary compilation, with the Spanish maestro being accompanied by the likes of Lauer, Pional and Mano Le Tough. Go get it.

2. Lindstrøm – Tensions: More cosmic goodness from Norway. This is the second track to be released from Lindstrøm’s forthcoming fifth album ‘It’s Alright Between Us As It Is’, released on Smalltown Supersound on October 20th.

3. Junktion – Friends & Strangers: Laid-back disco roller from Dutch producer Junktion, ‘Friends & Strangers’ is part of a three-track EP originally-titled ‘EP’. Make Believe Disco doing this business.

Check out his recent mix for Pulse Msc while you’re on it:

4. Doc Daneeka – Better Dayz: Third instalment of the Welsh producer’s WALK.MAN series and it’s a piano-based party-starter. Get this and ‘Stay Away From Music’ on the flip here, and stay tuned for the release of the WALK.MAN mixtape out digitally and on cassette soon.

5. Cleveland – Pay Back: We’ve been waiting patiently for the release of this one since we heard it back in on the Belgian producer’s excellent Data Transmission mix at the beginning of 2016! It’s finally being released on Talabot’s Hivern Discs on 6th October. Hard work’s always gon’ pay back, it’s a gem.

And for the longer listen, selections from Nicholas for Coastal Haze.

For more from the Italian producer, check out two tracks from his mini-LP ‘Lonnie’s Reprise‘ forthcoming on Church:

Top 5 Tracks of the Week

1. Laurence Guy – Windham Hill: After the success of his first full-length on Church, HDP alumnus Laurence Guy dropped this beautifully mellow number last week. Release date TBC.

2. Benjamin Fröhlich – Dream City: This is the stirring opener to the second part of Benjamin Fröhlich’s Rude Movements EP series, and if the first is anything to go by… It’s out on his own equally-good label, Permanent Vacation.

3. Al Zanders – There Is Rhythm: Phonica Records doing the business on Al Zanders’ next release, a two-track 12″ entitled ‘There Is Rhythm’. Hold tight for the synthy stabs after the two minute mark (and general percussive mayhem throughout). Lovely stuff.

4. Kiwi – Marmora’s Theme (Tuff City Kids Remix): Tuff City Kids serve up a tasty piano house remix for Kiwi’s first outing on Dusky’s label 17 Steps.

And whilst we’re on it, delve into Kiwi’s Beats in Space radio show from a couple of days back:

5. Suzanne Kraft – Nordsee: Irresistible four and a half minutes from Suzanne Kraft, covering Andreas Doreau as part of DEEK Recordings’ compilation ‘Covered In Gloria‘, a collection of covers of the likes of Roy Orbison, Wham and Oasis. Check that out here.

And for the longer listen, Juan Maclean’s kicked off Warm booking agency’s relaunch with podcast number one:
