TRACK OF THE WEEK: Aleksandir – Yamaha

aleksandirWell, Where has this come from? An absolute peach of a track coming out of Tessellate London. The track was premiered unsurprisingly by ‘Houseum’ – the channel run by Tessellates founders Max Van Dijk & Deelux Audio. This Turkish producer ‘Aleksandir’ is some find by them and we just have to place this as our track of the week by a length. Brilliant progressive, soft, mesmerising track with bass hooks aplenty and synth arpeggios leads everywhere. This tune brings us on a lovely pleasant little electronic expedition. Nice Find.

Stuart Mavis – Different Generations

F5D2A3BF-387A-408A-AF4B-D5582116F92CDutch group Stuart Mavis have been on the cusp of something really good for the last few years without fully establishing themselves to many listeners. They were in Groningen for Eurosonic at the start of the year and it was their song ‘Ocean’ that really stood out in the official Playlist at the time. At that time ‘Ocean’ was their only song uploaded to the site and since they have released their debut EP ( check it ). Scrolling back a few years, this wonderful performance of ‘Different Generations’ is quite simply Devine. Really strong vocals on display here, who knows where this band will end up but they really have a great sound. Keep it lit.

Pedestrian – Airs & Graces

ff2254987d8e4ffceff4aeec34e37878Snatched from ‘Maribou State’s curated Spotify playlist we find a stellar track from their stablemates ‘Pedestrian’. A simplistic ‘Airs & Graces’ catches the eye for it’s softness and subtlety. Pedestrian are no novices when it comes to making well produced tracks – Hoyle Road was a really tasty one back in 2013. Glitchy synths – Distortion – Chopped vocal samples create the atmosphere in this one. The track is emotive and smooth. It’s like Bicep & Maribou combined in one composition. We like.

Earlham Mystics – Stolen Heart

downloadNorfolk’s Luke Abbott just keeps making cool new sounds consistently. His latest alias ‘Earlham Mystics’ unsurprisingly is championed by Gold Panda and released on his ‘Notown Records’. The style resembles Gold Panda’s trippy ‘You’ track and also has shades of Scottish producer ‘Koreless’ in it. This tune is wholly intriguing and caught our attention immediately for it’s unique enough style. A real alternative sniff here – Good man Abbott. The man has so much skill to burn.
