And you thought Real Estate was chill(wave) for summer lazy days? try a bit of Sun Araw, its makes falling asleep fishing on a calm pond sound like a monster truck rally.
Take does a nice edit of the classic Fall In Love by Slum Village, short n sweet.
More from Detroit, Moodymann isn’t really a blog musician, I like to imagine him as vinyl only and buying his stuff strictly from his site. He has stuck to his sound and might be one of the more pure musicians out there, enjoy this one, its dirty.
A new EP from Sbtrkt this week, one of the few artists i’ve found out thru just direct emails and him posting comments on the blog. 2020 seems to be maybe a new direction for the whole dub sound, its more straight forward like early Detroit House, if that’s whats happening then i’m really excited for things to come.
I need to credit Scott for finding Neon Indian, I almost wrote it off because the name but one quick listen and I was hooked. The synths have this nice in and out sound and his singing stays in the perfect range, overall just a catchy experimental pop song, I hope to hear more from him.
I remember that Shades Of Jae was my first taste of actually obsessively seeking out a record, a friend of mine had doubles but didn’t want to part with either. The song is such a tease, it feels like its going to start up like 10 times but just goes back into the groove that doesn’t have a kick which really separates the house lovers and the fakers on a dance floor.
Disco tracks on Kompakt in the early 2000s? yes and it was a go to record if you had to DJ to a stiff crowd. If I didn’t have Muria by Metro Area or 2 after 909 some nights would get really long, these 2 always loosened everyone up with that huge swaying synth and warmed up Kraftwerk like sounding machines calculating.
One of the first songs I ever heard by The Field was A Paw In My Face and its still one of the best. Held together by a looping stutter of a Lionel Richie song and some octave changes I never know when you would turn it off because i’m such a fan of repetition, i’m going on 3 times in a row and I still want more.
Just saw some retweets of this Flying Lotus video i’ve never seen for Infinitum, enjoy.
