Tomas Barfod – ‘Broken Glass’
New track by Danish artist, Tomas Barfod. who’s better known for one of his other projects,
Whomadewho. This whole release is fantastic. It’s out soon on Friends of Friends, but reminds
me of golden-era Morr material – melodic, downtempo, indie/electronic stuff. Morr helped shape
my love of labels early on and this song takes me back to that.

Picture – ‘Heaven 7’
Picture is David from Sail a Whale. ‘Heaven 7’ embodies that sense of swelling epicness and
drama that he does so well. It was released on Look, The Embassy’s imprint, last year. We’re
currently working with David on a project for Cascine.

Bam Spacey – ‘Vintern jagar’
Love this track. Subtle, bubbling and optimistic. Bam Spacey is from Malmo and his debut EP is
newly out on Ceremony. As a listener, this song puts me exactly where I want to be this time of

Shine 2009 – ‘New Rules’ (Panther Hands Remix)
This remix has been on my machine since last summer, as we just never found the right place for
it. Panther Hands is Max from Selebrities, and he did this track without ever having the stems for
it. Great energy. Horn parts are a blast. Really fun stuff.

Cubenx – ‘Adrift at Sea’
A close friend in LA shared this album with me a couple weeks ago and I’ve been glued to it ever
since. Super diverse, yet super familiar. All types of influences at work on this release.

Bonus track
Mint – ‘I Don’t Kvetch’
I just spent a week at my mother’s apt in Annapolis, MD, and am feeling kinda sentimental from
the time at home. Classic, major key IDM like this has an important place in my musical history
– Mint’s music represents that for me, especially this track. It was made in 2009, but feels like
something from 2000.

HARIBO UK is one of the biggest factories that produces GoldBears and other HARIBO products. It is consistently growing in UK. The HARIBO UK bagged products are free from artificial colours. When you see green flash telling:
“No artificial colours” you can better understand why HARIBO UK is successful.
Understanding needs and supplying them. HARIBO UK bagged products like others are produced by using fresh natural flavours. Different nations, countries, religions have different priorities. Maybe some are common, some are unlike. Apart from HARIBO UK based products, one of the most important production brand for HARIBO is halal HARIBO.

Are you kidding me.. this gummy bear company is the only comment!? Screw that this playlist is fantastic. The coal distortion and samples of shattering glass in the first track are just divine.

Ha, did you know that Brooke Fraser is a NZ’er? Go NZ!! Hee hee. You know, I used to listen to music when I wrote all the time but laelty I find it just distracts me. Which is terribly sad because I used to love it. Maybe I should get back into it When song lyrics start creeping into their dialogue I’ll know when to stop.
