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

- Samaa 

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.

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. 

- Oli

dOP - Kisses

Apologies for the hiatus. Happy V Day 

- Oli

I don’t care who objects to this - Fish go DEEP 4 ma Throwback Thursday!

- Samaa

SOPHIE - BIPP

Apparently everyone was talking about this song last year, so this is for the fools like myself who missed it. It’s noisy, glitchy & abrasive post-pop; 3 minutes of sweet & sour fun.

- Gus

HAPPY NEW YEAR 

Iman Euroupe - Hold on we’re going home (Jarreau Vandal Remix)

A Merry Christmas from the Venn Diagram!

Kaytranada - At All

I’ve been trying to put together this year’s top tracks, and it’s becoming pretty evident that Kaytranada has made quite an impact to the soundtrack of my 2013. ‘At All’ comes from the Canadian producer’s LP released in October ‘At All/Hilarity Duff’.

You can watch the official video here

you can stream his Soundcloud here

and you can catch his (suspiciously wavey) Boiler Room here

HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVE EVERYBODY!

- Love from Samaa

Jacques Greene - Can’t get Close ( Sampha JG Edit)

Join in the festive Countdown to Christmas with The Lucky Me Advent Calendar - A song a day till 25th December! :)
