Happy Monday everyone. It feels like years since we were allowed out of the house. This is the perfect time to change old habits and take up those passion projects that real-life commitments infringed on. What I have found out recently is that I enjoy walking, I don’t enjoy running and that going to the pub does in no way help my productivity. I have gotten more work done this month than ever before in a similar time period.
Enough about that, moving onto today’s musical choice. I have picked Dutch artist Sun Shy Boy as my focus artist this morning. I was sent ‘Color of Home‘ over via SubmitHub a couple of weeks ago. At the time, I was absolutely rammed to the gills with stacks of tunes and couldn’t really react properly. Like all good tunes that slip by, I foldered the tune off in my personal Spotify account for later perusal. For the last few weeks, Color of Home has been shuffling away whilst I embarked on my daily walk around a local lake. Each day I would notice this subtle little tune and enjoy its tranquil flow. It got to the stage where I began to consciously search for it before I set off! It’s a beauty.
Sun Shy Boy is the moniker of Emile Lagarde and this track is ripped from his second EP instalment titled ‘NaNaNa‘. The track features the peaceful vocals of Jessica Matheson too. I really like the unique style of this artist, his electronic style reminds me of Bryce Connolly (Mindchatter). The bouncy and vibrant ‘My Only Way‘ is firm evidence of this – it is a lovely experimental production. ‘So Sensitive‘ is also a worthwhile listen.

I caught up with New York’s Ollie Chanin last week. He is fresh off a collaboration with Eminem. If you still have some reading left in your eyes, check that one here.
