Great performance of Dream Warriors’ 1990 classic My Definition of a Boombastic Jazz Style.
90s nostalgia in full swing. Heard Olive’s UK number 1 You’re Not Alone during the week. In context of current trends in electronic and dance music, it still sounds incredibly fresh.
Brooklyn rockers Bear in Heaven dropped their 3rd album last month. It’s full of highlights, including this, the glossy, dreamy and anthemic Sinful Nature. Should be of interest to fans of MGMT and The Horrors.
Orbital’s new album Wonky excellently pays homage to their roots while embracing the post-dub electronic scene. This is Distractions, a great example of the way they’ve blended the new and old.
The Very Best are due to follow up their incredible 2009 album Warm Heart of Africa with MTMTMK. This is the joyous Yoshua Alikuti from it.
Must see live before I die.
This is the badass video for Dark Steering, a track from Squarepusher’s soon to be released album Ufabulum.
Chromatics’ Kill For Love is my current can’t-wait-to-get-my-hands-on-it album. The title track is one of a number of brilliant tracks from it that have been doing the rounds in the past couple of months.
El-P / Tougher Colder Killer / Cancer For Cure
Absolutely loved El-P’s 2007 album I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead. The alternative hip hop artist’s latest record, Cancer For Cure is due out in May.
Borrowing the best bits of House, Funk and Soul, THEESatisfaction’s QueenS is a brilliant, groovy anthem from their new album awE naturalE.
