ALISTAIR ALBRECHT | GISB (MUSKOX RECORDS)

alistair albrecht

The latest release from small British label Muskox Records comes from Label Manager Alistair Albrecht and it’s a tech killer. Dark and twisted with cheeky vocal samples, wicked percussion and a warm perfectly formed interlude, it’s the kind of thing I love to hear in a club. There’s also a punchier remix from Extrano which you can listen to here.

TRACKS 2GET UR CHILL ON 2

grumpy cat face

Hey! We hope you had a lovely long Easter weekend. Here’s a smooth and soulful playlist, from sounds with a bounce to sounds with raw emotion and some nice warm melodic stuff too. We promise it will cheer you up.

Blonde | Foolish (feat. Ryan Ashley) – poptastic soul from a Brit duo making sweet music. Out in May on Eton Messy Records.

TĀLĀ | Serbia – disco-pop synth sounds. Debut EP coming from this talented lady soon – keep an eye out.

CIRC | Mirror – a track all about sea, with boat sounds, seagull calls and mermaids singing. Wouldn’t sound out of place on The Little Mermaid soundtrack.

Hazy * | So I Know It’s Real – Hazy is a new fave of ours. Love the trippy hip-hop sound of this track with a sample from Lykke Li. DL the full album here.

Bon Iver | Holocene (Satchmode Remix) – this track makes you want to go and hug someone

Daughter | Medicine (Sieren Edit) – gotta get a dreamy vocal-led remix in our soothing playlists hey

Movement | Ivory - a bit creepy. a bit rock.

Subject Lost & Harvy Dent | Target Lights – a mix of atmospheric straight bass music and guitar based strong melodies

NAVVI | Speak - this one has a touch of the Twin Peaks about it. 80′s and lush.

Few Friends | Chaka (Long Version) - nice full rich brassy sounds. It’s jazz funk time!

LUKE VIBERT | ACAGE

Luke Vibert

I love Luke Vibert. You always know when it’s a Vibert track. His sound is fun, a bit tongue in cheek and always produced with lots of finesse. He’s got a new album out later this week on Hypercolour titled ‘Ridmik’ which promises to be ‘acid heavy’. Here’s a taster in the form of track ‘Acage’. It’s got energy, bouncy squelchy sounds, elevator vocals and lots of quirky touches. It’s also very pleasurable to watch those birds fuzzing about.
