Top 5 Tracks of the Week

1. George FitzGerald – Burns: Emotive return for GF with dazzling synths and haunting vocals. Domino’s Double Six doing the business.

2. Dan Shake – Wake, Shake & Bake: Third cut from the London-based producer’s excellently-titled ‘Shakes On A Plane’, out on Lumberjacks In Hell. Akin to most of his repertoire, irresistible disco right here.

3. Dusky – Square Miso: Released Monday just gone, more 90s-influenced, piano house from Dusky. Can’t go wrong.

4 Al Zanders – Song About A Dream: Second cut from Al Zanders’ sample-heavy release on Phonica. The boy done good, watch this space.

5. Lauer – Tyco: Lauer returns to Futureboogie with a three track EP entitled ‘Las Brisas’. Industrial and balearic house from the Tuff City Kids and Talamanca System producer that we’ve come to know and love.

A good week for Tim Sweeney’s Beats in Space radio show. Heavy-hitters Hunee and Michael Mayer both dropped in on the same show. Enjoy:

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. 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:

Krankbrother present 10 Years of Phonica Album Release Party at Fire

One of the most well-known record stores in London town, Phonica Records, is turning ten years old this year and what better way to celebrate than team up with hot shot promoters Krankbrother to host an unmissable party. Not only are the brothers Krank and Phonica DJs stepping behind the decks, but they’ve also commandeered a spectacularly good line-up to join proceedings in the atmospheric arches of London’s Fire.

Kasseem Mosse will be bringing a live show to Room 2, joined by Bristol-based Appleblim and funk aficionados Psychemagik. Heavyweight headliner Henrik Schwarz will be taking over Room 1, with support from the excellent Midland.

It’s a ridiculously good line-up to mark a brilliant milestone. Come celebrate and bag your tickets now.
