badly drawn boy - the shining

I thought I'd post this prior to heading to bed - its one of my go to songs to listen to when I'm feeling sad or disheartened - the vocals are soothing a day yet thoughtful.

Ripperton - I'm Gonna Make You Love Me

Out now on Deetron's Character label - this comes from one of in my eyes, one of the most consistent producers on the scene at the moment - smooth, deep and extremely precise in the production.

Eagles & Butterflies - Fireworks (Original Mix)

Afternoon, Following on my late night playing down the Bank, I'm doing what I always do on a Sunday prior to the footy commencing and that's having a look at the more laid-back sounds that I like playing - but also listening to on a day to day basis - and I have found one today from the London-born and LA-based producer. They've been involved in a fair few releases as of yet - with works on Noir and Get Physical - 2016 looks like its going to be a big year for the man - having already toured Columbia with Richie Hawtin as well as playing alongside Bedrock boss John Digweed recently at BPM.

Joey Beltram - Energy Flash (Original Mix)

I'm playing at a night tomorrow night - celebrating the classics over the past 30 odd years - this is definitely being played!

Gunnar Haslam - Fleuve

Found this via the people at Avant-Avant this evening - they've described it as Leftfield Post-House Ambient, which is probably about right - there is that early 2000s vibe with this track which came out some 18 months ago - interesting.

Daso & Pawas - No Lead (Chymera Remix)

Out on Alex Niggemann's Soulfooled label tomorrow (Friday 29th) - this is proper atmospheric from the Indian pair.

Jaguar Skills' Homage To Bowie.

The unexpected passing of David Bowie earlier this month shocked the world, and many artists have paid their tributes in their own way - latest amongst them is Jaguar Skills who's done this brilliant set above - with songs, words and thoughts from Bowie himself. Original article from Data Transmission here.

Deepchord - Pinewood Lodge

So I found this whilst looking on my twitter timeline, someone linked to Soundcloud a sample of this outstanding slice of Ambient Techno from Soma - its the sort of sound that I'm trying to get with some of my work which I'm doing at the moment - instead of the 4 to the 4 usuality that is on the go at the moment.

Skee Mask - Everest

Definitely one for the commute home after a long day, out next week on Ilian Tape.

Kobosil - Avernian

Proper thumper this - out on Ostgut Ton

Etapp Kyle - Luna

Lovely track this on Klockworks.

Kate Bush - Running Up That Hill (Ashley Beedle Edit)

Have just found this on YouTube - its a remarkably beautiful and chilled edit of Kate Bush's iconic tune from the eighties - by one half of X-Press 2 - Ashley Beedle. it great that producers do these updated edits of timeless classics - I know Late Nite Tuff Guy has become quite niched at doing these tidy edits of classics such Chaka Khan's Ain't Nobody - and Purple Disco Machine redid The Whispers' And The Beat Goes On, which is a personal favourite of mine!
