Christian Löffler -Like Water ( ft. Mohna)

I remember a good few years ago going to a gig in London on my own for the first time. Before I set off I was subtly apprehensive about going alone, especially after just moving to this big scary new city. The gig in question was Kiasmos in Brixton – on the night they were supported by none other than a Löffler live set. I had never heard of the German until then, but my word the music was absolutely blissful.

Since then, I have been keeping an eye on his success since and even had the privilege of seeing him again last year. His little collaborations with Mohna were lovely on his debut offering and again on his 2016 ‘Mare’ album and I’m very glad to hear his new single features her again. The two in combination work like cheese and wine, this is a great little tune to get Löffler’s year rolling.

Throwback : Arctic Monkeys – My Propeller

A little reminiscing here taken from The Arctic Monkey’s 2009 third studio album ‘Humbug’. The opening track ‘My Propeller’ is the tune in focus, and what a tune it was. After the success of their opening two albums it was difficult to see how the band could keep the Sound fresh. ‘My propeller’ opened Humbug and blew me away at the time. Such a mellow, chilled and calculated song, no big crescendos or complications, just a stellar track. Heard it recently and just figured I’d shtick it up here, since they have a new album about.

 

Dave Eleanor – I say goodbye (ft.Blanka) Pablo Nouvelle Rework

This song just trickled into my playlist on its own accord somehow, what a great surprise. The vocals from Blanka and moody beat from Eleanor offer great emotive depth to set the track in motion. In the mould of Slyvan Esso, Nouvelle brings a fantastic bouncier electronic dynamic to this meloncoly composition which elevates it onto a higher platform. A truely brilliant piece of work here, well worth a shoegazing listen. Enjoy

One of our favorite dj’s, South Africa’s Jazzuelle has just dropped another atmospheric powerful house album on us. ‘Rebirth’ brings a sense of suspense with it yet plods along with a sense of purpose. This is a collection that takes us on a journey above and beyond, the chilling chopped vocals in the album title track ‘rebirth’ create a weirdly blissful trancelike setting. This is a fantastic little preview entirely. Check it out.
