One German. One South African. Germafrican. Both ridiculously good looking and they make overly complicated electronic music, which is rather good! DMCWorld goes back to mine with LADS as their new track ‘Tales of the Orient,’ features on the excellent new ‘The Great Ennead’ compilation on Sounds of Khemit.
Depeche Mode – Useless (Kruder & Dorfmeister Session)
This track takes me back to my youth. Being picked up from school as a mere 7 year old blasting this tune whilst driving with my brother. On top, you have a vocal with one of my biggest inspirations to get into electronic music, Depeche Mode.
Paradis – Garde Le Pour Toi
Garde Le Pour Toi is the perfect track to chill out to. This brings back a lot of memories of great times spent hanging out with friends at a house party or barbecue.
Jamiroquai – You Give Me Something
As a kid, I grew up listening to rock, jazz and blues music, and thus I was exposed to and saw A LOT of bands perform live. I had the absolute privilege of watching Jamiroquai live in concert in South Africa and I can undoubtedly say they are the tightest band I have ever seen.
Tarlabasi – Oceanvs Orientalis (Be Svendsen Remix)
Be Svendsen is elegance in music and is so beautifully demonstrated in this world class track. I am very influenced by world music and oriental scales and Be Svendsen is a master at transporting me to the deserts of the middle east or the centre of a forest. Sonic mastery!
Jimi Hendrix – Little Wing
I remember spending hours upon hours drumming away to this track as a teenager and was the first song I ever performed live as part of a band at our first ever gig so this song will always hold a special place in my heart.
Ameli Paul – Somm
This track takes me to different realms everytime I listen to it. The fact that it’s released on a friends label makes it even more special.
Duererstuben – Sonnenblut Am Platz Der Perlen
I love this track as it is constantly evolving. I love melancholy sounds and this holds dear memories playing it as part of LADS.
Coss & Iorie – Yang
The uplifting and driving melody embraces you and you can’t help but move your body. Iorie always delivers!
Kalipo – Alles Gut
Sitting in the S-Bahn to Friedrichhausen, enjoying yourself and whatever comes next. “Alles Gut!”
Coyu & Edu Imbernon – El baile alemán (Original Mix)
“Einfach?!” – Very atmospheric and deep sound while relying on a super smooth groove. We played this at our first gig together as LADS and people went crazy! Amazing memories!
The Great Ennead compilation is out now on Sounds of Khemit.
