London Grammar – Benobo Remix

I’m quite into Benobo at the moment so going to name two of his records!  First is his remix of the excellent London Grammar’s Hey Now, it’s a really vibey mix with lots of the original parts which are super chilled, and superbly programmed beat over the top.

Benobo – Bambro Koyo Ganda

Taken from his new album this track kicks off with Innov Gwana vocals before dropping into a simple but really subby 4/4 beat.  Just really different mish mash of sounds but with tons of soul.

The Chameleon – Links

Possibly my favourite Good Looking Records tune and one of the first to get me hooked on the dnb sound – not least cos of the catchy sample!  Every sound in this record is spot on, nestled perfectly in its own space and lots of space to breathe.  Classic dnb!

JJ Cale – After Midnight

I listen to JJ Cale all the time, this is one of my favourite tracks of his.  It’s nice to get away from everything electronic when you’re not making music and listen to something totally different.  JJ Cale’s music is fun and light hearted, often the opposite of what I’m making haha!

Dusky – Ingrid Is a Hybrid

Huge huge huge record!  Takes me back for some reason, it has an early rave, almost FSOL vibe to it.  Dusky sound meticulous in their drum production too, all their tracks are a pleasure to listen to.

Tipper – Surrounded

Weird and wonderful, Tipper manages to use fx as instruments, a total master of his craft and super inspiring sound design with a musical approach first and foremost.  A must listen.

Tipper – Adrift For Days

 

Bloc Party – Signs

One of their more down tempo tracks, I love the ambient and organic elements of this.  It reminds me of this as well sometimes……

Bloc Party – Signs

 

Aphex Twin – Selected Ambient Works

Just kick back and let this wash over you.

Aphex Twin – Selected Ambient Works 85-92

 

Icarus – Home

Icarus are definitely ones to keep an eye on in the house world, this my favourite track of theirs, a really beautiful record with lots of live and processed sounds.

Icarus – Home (feat. AURORA)

 

Jamie XX – Sleep Sound

How does he do it?!!

DC Breaks – Underground

 

dcbreaks DC Breaks ‘Underground’

RAM RECORDS

DC Breaks return following the success of their vocal-show stopper Everybody, a track which has dominated stages across European festivals for the past twelve months. Although this time, as its name suggests, the duo return to the Underground, bringing out the sound which made them so infamous in the early days. With a debut LP slowly getting closer, the next few singles will solidify just how diverse the album will prove to be. Whether it’s the stadium prowess of Everybody, or the angrily stomping beat peddles of Underground, their palette of musicality continues to impress.

Underground is a stomping, biting call to arms which is set to explode subs on impact. Featuring the heavy bass notes which resound throughout the nastier side of DC Breaks’ discography, they create a dark atmosphere and build up for a foreboding intro. With warbling hooks and a bassline that surges with power, it also expands their dancefloor appeal by giving a flipside to the likes of ‘Infinity’ and ‘Gambino’. Featuring a more jump-up undertone, you’ll find this set blazer making an appearance at any distortion driven crescendo.

DC Breaks never fail to make their impact through grinding slabs of sonic and Underground is no different. Be careful what you wish for, because DC Breaks will deliver beats harder than you could imagine.
