Home – Rudimental

Dear HMEr, I’m sorry I’ve been neglecting you recently. Anyway, I’m back now. I hope this will help you to forgive me.

Because this album has a really solid set of big ol’ tracks. A little basic? Sure. But hey, basic can be a lot of fun sometimes.

You will sing along to Not Giving In.

Emeli Sandé will tell you that you’re okay just the way you are.

You will Feel the Love. Ella Eyre is sure to get in on the act too.

Not bad Rudimental, not bad at all. Have a great weekend.


Something a bit different for you this Sunday. A couple of tracks by Chelou.

First up, Halfway to Nowhere is produced by Maya Jane Coles and set to the weird and wonderful magical world of animator Andy Baker.

And to follow, a bit less garden, a bit more intergalactic, another cracker.

You can catch Adam (Chelou) finishing up his European tour in his Camden hometown at the Jazz Cafe in a couple of weeks. Snap ’em up.

Bonus track: Ross From Friends in on the remix action, taking it down a notch

Doin Ya Thing – Oliver Dollar

Doin Ya Thing is something a little bit special. Oliver $ sampling Detroit-house royalty Moodymann from a live set he did in Manchester back in 2010.

Moodymann just sounds like the boss. You can find the full mix here – it’s worth it. And my favourite Moodymann here and here.

Bonus track: if you know me, you know I’m big into this one. It’s just got one of those basslines that you just got to step to. All-time top weekend gold.


Fleetmac Wood

I just love what these guys do. The music is beautiful, the party is mad. Make sure you don’t miss out next time they roll around. I’ll leave the description to them since I’m still in an afterglow.

“With exclusive remixes and edits crafted for the dance floor, this DJ set and AV show is not a tribute act, but a rave that re-frames the music of Fleetwood Mac. Twirling through disco, techno and house, DJs Roxanne Roll and Smooth Sailing have taken this dance party from Berlin to Burning Man and shared their passion with like-minded hedonists around the world.”
