Want something with a drop? I’ve got it for you. It’s the Bulgarian master Kink with Chorus. It builds, it bubbles, it crashes, and then at around 3:30 it speeds and rotates until you think it can’t build anymore, and it does, and then at 4 minutes it’s full peak dropness. Love it. Turn it up to full beans for full benefit.
Did you enjoy this? Did you? Here’s some of my other favourite Kink tracks.
This is one to get a deep wonk onto. Take a mushroom trip back to 2007 with Justin Martin. He was a co-founder of Dirtybird and it’s got that characteristic funky tech house feel. But this one is just that bit more twisted than most.

“It’s going to be alright. Tonight. Oh my. It’s going to be alright. Oh yeah. Come on Baby. The sun is going to keep on shining. Brighter days on the horizon. My love for you will always keep on rising.”
And then those pianos. Those fucking pianos. God it’s gorgeous.
Dreamy vocals. It’s just a pure gold nostalgic banger. Throw your hands up in the air.
Top iconic Positiva album cover thrown in for good measure there.
This is a drifty and slightly disorientating Todd Terje edit of Paul Simon’s seminal hit Diamonds. There’s a lot to like about this one; I’m going to let it do the talking.
This track is another from Greg Wilson’s Top 10 Best Reworks and Edits. You can find the full list here.
I’m headed to the inaugral Maiden Voyage Festival today on Three Mills Island. It’s a one-stage Jazz Cafe creation with a solid gold line-up spanning jazz, hip-hop, afrobeat and funk. So solid in fact that I’m not even going to pick out an artist – instead you can listen to a selection of tracks below. Whack it on shuffle and soak it in.
This guy is. For. Real. He’s probably best known for his work with Chet Faker (aka Nick Murphy), but Marcus is so talented that he can pretty much produce a hit in any genre, and play most of the instruments as well. As if that’s not enough, he’s one of the most respected DJs in the game, playing the top of Berlin’s scene.
Having bigged him up, his releases are actually a bit hit and miss – probably because he plays with so many genres and influences. So what I’ve done is picked two of his darker numbers for you. First up we have Pleasure Moon – a rolling, percussive, sexy trip through the night.
And second it’s Gerd Janson’s take on High Times. It comes firing straight out of the blocks; it’ll grab you by the scruff of the neck and not let go for another 7 minutes. So I hope you like!
First up, I can’t describe this new 3-track release by Dusky without loving on the name of the first track; Boris Borisson’s Trip To Morissons. I mean, what are they thinking? And why? I love it.
Anyway, to the music – it is another consistent (read, massive) release from the lads from London. It delivers just what you’d expect – some ethereal cords, some tasty nostalgic vocal samples, and some even more tasty breaks. Sharp.
A line paraphrased from the review on RA: Dusky deliver the “general feeling of roofs being raised”. And if you want to do just that, you’re in luck – join in for their 5th in a series of 8 hour sets at Mick’s Garage this Saturday. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
More Dusky loving by me here.
