Harvey Sutherland makes music like a man who lives in perma-Summer. It must be the Aussie in him. Anyway, a couple of months ago he foretold our weather by releasing a typically upbeat funky single, Superego. It’ll tick a lot of boxes.

Bonus playlist: if you like your tracks house-y and and your instruments piano-y then I have the perfect playlist for you. Bloody hell I want to go out.
Cody Currie is one-to-watch / up-and-coming / a future bigshot. All you need to know is the boy makes real nice bouncey disco-infused house grooves – think Harvey Sutherland on holiday. Expect to see a lot more of him this year, starting next month at the Jamm (playing alongside Sophie Lloyd).
Here’s his latest EP Alpha Bravo out now on House of Disco Records.
I keep a little list of artists that I really really want to see live. Little Dragon has been on that list for a while. And then; 1) Little Dragon is playing London in November; 2) Little Dragon is playing at Printworks*; 3) Harvey Sutherland is supporting. So I’m pretty happy about all this.
