The Sound Sniffers Half Year Top 10

Another six months has passed and it's been jam packed with great new music. It is always hard doing lists like this but everyone always has those stand out tunes! With over a thousand artist submissions sent my way and millions of hours of searching- this is the list of ten that makes The Sound... Continue Reading →

Robag Wruhme – Venq Tolep

Pampa Records never ever disappoints I don't think. Anything sanctioned by DJ Koze seems to be blissful in nature! Here we have East German circuit legend Wruhme with a beautiful ambient composition . Mellow to the max - this 44 year old is churning out great sounds still, almost 15 years since his debut album...

Clément Froissart – Peupleraie

Very nicely assembled synth-pop stuff here from French artist Clément Froissart. This is his new solo project as he splinters from his band 'Concorde'. This song and it's eerie drone synth running throughout (similar to Beach House - Norway) really stands out from first listen. This is just a superbly written piece of emotive music,...

Dumbo Gets Mad – Makes You Fly

Italian duo Luca Bergomi and Carlotta Menozzi formed this psych-rock project upon moving to LA back in 2010. I have just stumbled upon them now, god forbid, and what a first impression they've made! 'Makes You Fly' is superb on so many levels. The opening Jazz horns and percussion build this up nicely from the... Continue Reading →

The Tallest Man On Earth – I’m a Stranger Now

I don't think I have written about 'The Tallest Man on Earth' on this site before. No idea why I haven't really as he is completely in the A class of musicians of our generation! His ability to match the most complex guitar plucking with his compelling voice seamlessly makes him a golden treasure. I... Continue Reading →

Locked Groove – Do Not Freak

It's been a while since I've put a pure house groover up on the site. Locked Groove, the German producer, has forced my hand this time with his brilliant piano led oldschool house hit 'Do Not Freak'. It would be rude to bypass this little gem which is nestled in his new album 'Sunset Service'.... Continue Reading →

Lakker – A Whisper In Your Ear

Completely Lekker Lekker here from Berlin-based Dubliners Ian McDonnell and Dara Smith (Lakker). What type of sorcery is this? 'A Whisper In Your Ear' is the end product, in my opinion, of their decade of working together on their own genre the aptly named - Techno not Techno. Not all will be into this one...

Pascäal – A.Q

This lad broke through a good few years ago with some pure class reworks using samples of well known chart hits. Songs like 'Drowning in You' and 'Cheated' were tunes I used to play in my shed with the gang over, to a curious and on the whole, positive reaction. Pascäal had the touch back... Continue Reading →
