Linden Jay - Be Like You

In honour of it being the 180th Birthday of the inventor of the Venn Diagram (John Venn) and today’s great google doodle here is a track I’ve been enjoying this summer. Heard it at a few of the festivals and it was a little bit of a soundtrack to my recent holiday in Southern Spain.

Oscar Key Sung - All I could do

Been a little bit in love with this song for a couple of months and I saw him support  How To Dress Well at The Institute of Contemporay Arts on friday. An emotional gig obviously. Both their voices are incredible.

Swoon

Sompoe - Leave the House

(Because I’m leaving the house and going to PARIS TODAY WHEYYY)

From Finnish producer’s  ’Leave the House’ EP released on the 20th April, on the ‘Sounds of Sumo’ label… LOVE the sexy vocals and big fan of the rolling basssssline.

Sam Smith - Stay With Me (Rainer + Grimm Remix)

Sorry to say this, I reeeeally dislike Sam Smith. But we can’t deny he has a brilliant voice. 

My section of the Venn Diagram covers cheese, and this is a massive injection of uplifting emotional gruyere for y’all.

Chet Faker - 1998

Happy Easter y’all. This song is great. Looking forward to this album

Jamie xx: Sleep Sound

Well this just made my day… so beaut!

- Samaa
 

Negativ - ‘Someone Special’ … tops my running playlist this month!

Despite residing in the UK, the DJ/Producer duo hailing from Warsaw released this one via Poland’s Sequel One Records last September. The track boast the usual recipe for success… a stompy bassline,sxc lyricz + catchy chords.

Grab a free download from XLR8R here

Also definitely worth checking out the 3rd track from the EP - 'That's The Way' (feat Michel Morales) - has a bit more basssssss

How to Dress Well - Words I Can’t remember

Don’t need many words. Perfect amount of cheese + perfect amount of toottootbeepbeep + perfect amount of chill + lovely male vocals.

- Oli

Toyboy & Robin - Better Places (Ft. Alex Adams)

This guys voice sounds a bit like MJ! 

- Oli

Ricoshëi - Perfect Like You

To this date Pampa records can do no wrong. I can honestly say I have wanted to post everything they’ve put out. DJ Koze’s Amygdala was my favourite album of last year and I’m really looking forward to seeing what comes in the future from Ricoshëi. Gush gush gush

- Oli

RA releases another from my favourite series, Real Scenes - Tokyo.

- Samaa

Pender Street Steppers - Openin Up

Just great, rlly rlly funky yah. Hoping to hear this at a festival or two this summer.

- Oli 

Dorsia - Ghana

The land that the best looking member of this blog hails from also has the title of the 2nd EP from LOFT records by Dorsia. The remix by HNNY is getting loads of hype and is well worth a listen but the original does it for me.
