The Time And Space Machine transports Graingerboy to No1
1 (6) GRAINGERBOY – TRAINSURFING IN TIME AND SPACE – POPCRISIS
Richard Norris in his Time And Space Machine guise remixes Trainsurfing from the Silent Universe EP, creating an atmospheric Balearic disco masterpiece, awash with that certain vibe where everything feels a little bit special. The poncho revival starts here. https://soundcloud.com/graingerboy/trainsurfing-in-time-and-space
2 (3) DJ PIERRE – SAVE OUR WORLD EP – DEEPLAY DIGITAL
The Original Mix is a perky rump shakin’ techno number that just keeps on driving, aided by a call to arms megaphone vocal. Moodmusic head honcho Sasse comes up trumps in the remix department, delivering two electrifying workouts, with smouldering low end 303 and intricate spot on machine percussion, teasing, pleasing and explosive. The Acid Dub takes no prisoners. https://soundcloud.com/deeplaydigital/dj-pierre-save-our-world-sasse
3 (9) YOUNGHUSBAND – SILVER SISTERS – SONIC CATHEDRAL
New four piece from London serve up a sumptuous swirling mix of colourful emotions, with a post punk feel and a slightly deadpan vocal, that’s a bit Ian Hunter meets Robert Smith. Lifted from their forthcoming debut LP Dromes, definitely one to check. http://youtu.be/keGauqHihR4
4 (5) EMILIANA TORRINI – SPEED OF DARK – VIRGIN
A triumphant return for the Icelandic songstress, as the original mix swoons and grooves across the daytime airwaves that matter, but just to make sure it hits the spot, it comes armed with a hypnotic 10 minute Andrew Weatherall locked in and nothing else matters jobby. Guaranteed to get a what the fuck is this reaction. https://soundcloud.com/xlr8r/emiliana-torrini-speed-of-dark http://youtu.be/ytqvkWCpZf4
5 (19) TYTHE – & ALSO WITH YOU – SUNDAY BEST
The debut LP from London producer Julian Peck, filled with warm sunshine grooves and incense fuelled chilled ambience. It’s what beach bars are made for. http://youtu.be/_Z_ocu74jHk
6 (1) ROOTS MANUVA – STOLEN YOUTH – BIG DADA
This slow burning brooding atmospheric number, originally written for the soundtrack to the first series of Channel 4’s Skins, first surfaced in 2007. The producers of Skins were so blown away, they asked Segal to do a remix to play over the final rolling credits in 2013. Powerful stuff. http://youtu.be/XyZtbLCp0Pg
7 (8) MARIAM THE BELIEVER – INVISIBLE GIVING (PRINS THOMAS DISKOMIX) – MOSHI MOSHI
Mariam Wallentin is better known as one half of Scandinavian pop duo Wildbirds And Peacedrums. Here she ventures out on her own, creating a positive and forceful song with her powerful vocals. Prins Thomas cooks up intoxicating rhythms and a heady brew. The result is reminiscent of DFA’s The Gossip at their best. https://soundcloud.com/prinsthomas/mariam-the-believer-invisible
8 (2) CROCODILES – CRIMES OF PASSION – ZOO MUSIC
Their most accomplished LP to date is at the forefront of 21st century psychedelic pop, riding on hip shaking grooves and oozing bundles of fuzzy cool. Fantastic! http://youtu.be/jEnXVhsoumU
9 (10) CHRIS TURNER – FLYLOVE – REBIRTH
Remixed and mastered for Rebirth, The 2013 Radio Edit is an out there slice of 21st Century freaky Californian soul with a jazz twist. It’s what hallucinogens on a summers day were made for. Detroit’s Andres and the UK’s Full Intention both deliver a nice couple of bumping mixes. http://youtu.be/kXdxeeagqyo
10 (13) LORELLE MEETS THE OBSOLETE – WHAT’S HOLDING YOU? –
The first track to be lifted from the Mexican duo’s third LP Chambers, is a relentless, hazardous, driving psych-out, that could induce foaming at the mouth and rolling eyes. It comes flipped with the excellent and much sought after Medicine To Cure Medicine Sickness. https://soundcloud.com/sonic-cathedral/lorelle-meets-the-obsolete-1
11 (17) BIG HARD EXCELLENT FISH – AND THE QUESTION REMAINS –
ONE LITTLE INDIAN
It’s been 23 years since The Imperfect List first raised eyebrows and turned heads. Well now Big Hard Excellent Fish make an equally provocative return, as Josie Jones spits out the current disgusting state of life in Britain today, set over a dramatic classical piece of music. Silver Bullet take it on an eerie spaced out groove, and Rootmasters serve it up on a bed of deep tones. http://youtu.be/cwaKH5SjE2o
12 (NEW) BALI FAMILY FT. NAVID IZADI – RAIN & SHINE – SOUTHERN FRIED
James What of Crosstown and Poker Flat fame was on holiday in Bali, where on a whim he hooked up with Luca C (Brigante’s other half), and vocalist Jamie Graham, together the trio made a woozy and dreamy psychedelic number with simmering acid house feels. If Jason Spaceman ever made a club record, it would probably be along these lines. Shame about the tagged on unnecessary rap, go straight for the rap free Dub.
13 (NEW) YOUNGHUSBAND – DROMES – SONIC CATHEDRAL
A stunning debut LP that blazes a pop savvy trail across fuzzy psychedelic landscapes, floating on shimmering lakes, soaring above thunderous clouds and burning bright among the twinkling stars. This London outfit are going all the way. http://youtu.be/HS13Z04Uwtg
14 (NEW) BURNING HOUSE – WALKING INTO A BURNING HOUSE – NAÏVE
Debut LP from Chief Xcel (Blackalicious) and Herve Salters (General Elektriks) under their collective moniker Burning House. It’s a fun packed genre hopping affair, taking in funk, disco, hip hop, jazz and kids TV themes all shot through with a good dose of pop savvy.
15 (15) STUBBORN HEART – PENETRATE / NIGHTHAWKS – ONE LITTLE INDIAN
The UK duo return with another ethereal floater, hovering over futuristic urban rhythms. Walter Ego, Leo Invisible and Stubborn Heart themselves deliver a nice set of remixes. Plus it comes with the excellent Nighthawks. http://youtu.be/ngAaZku8ono http://youtu.be/QEL8kI3ZTPo
16 (18) VARIOUS ARTISTS – SUMMER 2013 SAMPLER – No. 19 MUSIC
This 11 brand new tracks compilation features 3 outstanding & out there cuts: BLUD – Memories, Tone Of Arc – White Spy and Eric Volta Ft. Gaika – The Very End Of Your Days. Well worth checking out.
17 (NEW) SCOTTI BRAINS – KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN BOY –
Dan Carey, Oli Bayston and Beth Buxton have a sunshine frazzled wig out in Dan’s South London studio with an Oxfam purchased 1950’s tape recorder and an anonymous recording which was already on the featured machine. A mind bending afternoon with a nice bit of jingle jangle. https://soundcloud.com/speedywunderground/sw004-scotti-brains-keep
18 (20) M+A – THESE DAYS – MONOTREME
The Italian duo take a different course and make a shiney happy return with their sunshine filled sophomore LP, bursting with instantly catchy electronic pop songs set on sophisticated grooves. Sort of Example meets Beck meets Empire Of The Sun. Cute.
19 (NEW) THE EMPEROR MACHINE – HEY! – SOUTHERN FRIED
A fat slab of infectious pulsing funky disco with retro synth licks and a slick vocal from Michelle Bee. Comes with a top set of mixes from Ewan Pearson that give it a bit of a runaway sax post punk New York feel.
20 (NEW) SEALINGS – MY BOYFRIEND’S DEAD – TOO PURE SINGLES CLUB
Brighton three piece with a heavy pounding lament that just gets more and more intense until it feels like your bones are going to snap. Comes backed with the lighter but still satanic Hey Bernice.
21 (NEW) GARY NUMAN – LOVE HURT BLEED – MORTAL
A firing on all cylinders return, as pounding aggressive synths steamroller in on jackhammer beats, pushing his in your face, sneering rock flavoured lyrics to the fore, with a chorus that’s got a contrasting hooky riff, not too far off Space’s disco classic Magic Fly.
22 (NEW) RAFFERTIE – RAIN – NINJA TUNE
A sumptuous electronic ballad in swirling rich textures that never move out of the shadows. Comes backed with a charming Teebs Remix that soaks you to the bone, plus two out there LP tracks Back Of The Line and Black Rainbow.
23 (NEW) QUASI – SEE YOU ON MARS – DOMINO
A shouty and slurry fuzzy bundle of raucous shambolic geek rock in a pub style. Fun. https://soundcloud.com/dominorecordco/quasi-see-you-on-mars
24 (NEW) THE KNIFE – LET’S TALK ABOUT GENDER BABY, LET’S TALK ABOUT YOU AND ME (PLANNINGTOROCK REWORK) – BRILLE
A nice and simple bouncing rhythmic mix with steel drum keyboard riffs and a dorks go to carnival vibe. http://youtu.be/iQq97XGNI38
25 (NEW) LAKI MERA – ALL I HAVE – JUST MUSIC
The second single to be lifted from the Glaswegian Trio’s critically acclaimed sophomore LP Turn All Memory To White Noise, is an intricate mix of electronica, folk and pop, with waves of melancholy and euphoria, that works a treat on the radio as well as the dancefloor. Comes with a couple of good house mixes from No Ceremony//// and Mculo. https://soundcloud.com/justmusiclabel/laki-mera-all-i-have-album
