Mark Pritchard + Thom Yorke

– Glass Temple by Takashi Yamaguchi

I’m looking forward to music from Mark Pritchard more than I am from anyone from Radiohead and this track makes me feel good about that thought. Mark is a top of the line swiss army knife when it comes to production, plenty of patience and precision, he uses things sparingly, just guides you to how you want to feel.

Leon Vynehall + Gold Panda

– A Classical Fantasy by Ivan Dryer (1981)

Hello again.

I just got back from a 5 week tour with Shigeto & Lord RAJA in the EU. Let’s get back to the music!

First, this new Leon Vynehall absolutely blossoms into a real crowd pleaser. What always impresses me about Vynehall is the added detail, he really combs through the track and releases these extra bursts of flavor into his songs that weave perfectly into the song.

Gold Panda has been MIA more than most people hoped, his new work grabs me as thought over heavily but with the same life as his previous music. I don’t want to say mature because thats sort of a cop out, this one especially feels lush in the headphones.

Unsung Hero in Slow Disco: Rollmottle

Posted by Jakub


Before your Todd Terje’s, D Lissik’s, Goldroom’s or Poolside’s there was a tucked away crew of SF guys that released on Sentrall Records. It mainly included Anthony Puglisi who went under the name Rollmottle along with the duo Broker/Dealer.

At the time it was a mature driven sound, not much cross over because the influences seemed drenched in 70’s psychedelia, yacht rock and some of the synth guru’s from coastal regions. It was heady but informative and elegant, each song felt like you discovered something that wouldn’t ever be on the radio but you could proudly play it for Bob Dylan or Kraftwerk.
