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:

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.

Doc Daneeka – Where U At?

First class heater coming out on Ten Thousand Yen from label boss Doc Daneeka. ‘Where U At’ is track number one from his forthcoming four-track EP entitled ‘Global Luv’. Hits the shelves 11th December, but you can get your pre-orders on his Bandcamp right now and in doing so get this mover.


Doc Daneeka – From Mine To Mistress EP

Surely a contender for EP of the week, this.

Doc Daneeka’s ‘From Mine To Mistress’ is hitting the shelves today, courtesy of his very own label, Ten Thousand Yen. Bringing the swagger from the off with lead track ‘What’s It Gonna Be?’, he’s recruited Seven Davis Jr. to help out with the vocals. If you’ve caught your breath after the rolling disco of ‘Together’ and the nigh-acid house of ‘GHOSTteXT’, he also appears on the teasing closer ‘I Promise’.

It’s a varied affair and we love it from start to finish.


Bodhi – I Need You EP

Doc Daneeka’s Swansea-based label Ten Thousand Yen have got their dibs on the new EP from fellow Welshmen, Bodhi.

As we’ve come to expect from their livelier side, the three-track ‘I Need You’ EP is a party-starter. All three tunes delve into toe-tapping house, brilliantly accompanied by the Welsh duo’s usual dash of quirkiness. The killer vocal and punchy percussion in ‘I Need You’, the Jazzier side of ‘WUH’ and the subtle atmospherics to ‘Soul Seeker’, all make this new EP of theirs another top notch effort.

‘I Need You’ hit the shelves at the beginning of the week, go grab a copy.
