DJ Koze – Knock Knock

24-Jul-18

★★★☆☆ = Good! What’s it sound like? DJ koze’s undeniable house – quizzical hip hop beats meet German techno. Thoughts As much as I want to call every Koze release essential (seriously kozela thank you for the music) I think he’s at his best as a remixer. This album has some great peaks ( baby, […]

Deetron – DJ-Kicks

11-Jul-18

★★★☆☆ = Good! What’s it sound like? Energetic house mix Thoughts A dynamic mix that builds in intensity. This is decidedly modern house but incorporates a number of styles and takes large influence from 90s golden age. The later half isn’t quite as good, track selection trades sexy for energy that I don’t particularly like. […]

Studio OST – Scenes (2012​-​2015)

07-Jul-18

★★★☆☆ = Good! What’s it sound like? Bassy hip minimal house. Thoughts Galcher lustwerk makes a pretty solid minimal house record. It’s not outstanding but I like his style direction and overall sound. This is an accessible introduction to his brand of house.

Sports – Modern Species

20-Jun-18

★★★☆☆ = Good! What’s it sound like? Reminds me of a more clubby version of the orb or 808 state. Thoughts Philip sherburne wrote the pitchfork review which covers things well ( https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/dj-sports-modern-species/ ) Tracks cover a range of influences (trance, dub, breakbeat house). It has a club vibe but extended. This would play very […]

Ricky Eat Acid – Talk To You Soon

14-May-18

★★★★☆ = Quality release and suggested listening What’s it sound like? A scatter of modern electro styles: trap, Blood Diamonds / Grimes art-electro, pensive piano bits, confessional lyrics. Thoughts Another good one from Ricky, this is the third album I’ve heard of his and I continue to be impressed by his catalog. The constant change […]

Greeen Linez – Izu King Street

09-Apr-18

⭐⭐⭐ Vaporwave inspired electro with a constant ‘house’ bump. This is probably their best and most accessible album so far. More Info: https://www.discogs.com/Greeen-Linez-Izu-King-Street/release/5999493 Listen! Spotify: Youtube: #VALUE!

Everything But The Girl – Walking Wounded

04-Apr-18

⭐⭐⭐ Though it’s a watered down version of Trip-hop, and Tracey’s lyrics are missing the wit found on their earlier albums, it’s still a solid collection of sad break-up songs from this lovely duo.
