Now this is a huge old track for me. Incredibly tasty piano chords, stunning deepness. At risk of sounding like a prick, I think the second drop (at 2:45) is really fucking clever. It somehow feels original, creative and natural at the same time. Leon Vynehall would be proud.
If you like the track you are in luck: as well as the Dope Mix, the EP has a Vocal Mix, a Deep Mix and an Alex Israel Remix!
Here we have three quality edits on Sterns; the vocals of immensely talented Malian singer Nahawa Doumbia being given the treatment by Ben Gomori and Tom Jay. Rather good.
Oh I love a big house rumbler I do. Hot Since 82 (Daley Padley) dropped this beast a couple of months ago on his Knee Deep in Sound label and I can’t really get over it.
Daley is on a pretty tasty looking Summer tour of Europe right now. If you like what you hear, check it out at www.hotsince82.com
track album: fuck it, have the whole album, why not.
Something a whole lot deeper coming at you today. It’s a dark rumbling beast of a track from Will Saul. This UK scene stalwart has music in his blood – he was born in Glastonbury and is the founder of Simple Records and Aus Music (who released this beauty).
Turn it up 90 seconds in and feel it come at you wave after wave.
Ever wondered what it would sound like if Roger Federer played against Novak Djokovic in the 2019 Wimbledon tennis final, except instead of Wimbledon it was outer space and instead of tennis it was synths? Then look no further. Masters of the interstellar game.
As always, shout out to Ben Gomori for the tip.
Two of my favourite things combining on this one. Tom Demac and Hugh Masekela. In Tom’s own words, it is a “sun burner gurner” and who am I to argue? It lifts the vocals from Don’t Go Lose It Baby and shunts them alongside one of those foot-stomping basslines. Top marks.
What was the song of last Summer? Maybe DJ Koze? Maybe Whole Again by Atomic Kitten, experiencing a Gareth Southgate-related resurgence?
Either way, I think Dan Snaith (Daphni/Caribou) is taking the title for 2019. Sizzling is an upbeat disco house banger and you will hear it a lot. I say bring it on.
