SIDNEY SAMSON - THE WORLD IS YOURS

As with my previous post, this track seemed to be getting people pumped at last nights Dark Party.

From the creator of last years club smasher 'RIVERSIDE' comes one of this summer's musts. It's been sitting in my CD wallet for a couple of months but I haven't been brave enough to take it out. Dark Party was going off in such a way last night, that I had no choice but to give it a spin. I'm very glad I did.

N.E.R.D. - HOT 'N' FUN (BOYS NOIZE RMX)

Quite a few people were asking me what this tune was last night... so I thought i'd share it with you. First heard it a little while back. Textbook N.E.R.D. with an extra injection of party courtesy of Boys Noize.

It's Huge.

We Have Band

We Have Band - Oh! (Official Music Video) from We Have Band on Vimeo.


catchy as new single from We Have Band. was a massive fan of the first single "You Came Out", i'm really enjoying this, and shall be playing over the weekend ;)

enjoy

Over and over and over and over.

I'm sure one of the Dark Party family members has mentioned this track before maybe even me. But it needs mention again, i just cannot get enough of it. It just reminds me of every garage anthem ever and is a massive track on it's own. i love it. The rest of Ruskos album was a massive surprise as well alot of the his signature wobble but there is also alot of other stuff, be sure to check it out (for me this is the best track on there).

The Chemical Brothers - Swoon (Boys Noize Summer Mix) [FULL HQ]



Amazing remix of an already great track, its a proper summer tune which i feel wrong playing on this overcast Wednesday afternoon. This should be appreciated outside on a scorching hot Saturday.

Glasser - Tremel (Jamie xx Remix)




Its like the XX and its members can do no wrong at the moment. Another quality remix probably topping the Florence remix in my opinion.

Katy B - Katy On A Mission



If it wasn't over already i'd say this was my summer tune. Massive production from Benga with great vocals from Katy B.

Stromae


Stromae is fucking massive in Europe, was in Berlin just the other day, and he had 2 singles in their top ten MTV playlist. great lazy style and flow. i think the thing that takes this to the next level, and why its so big, is just the melody and music transcends language which makes it accessible to everyone

check out "Alors On Danse"

Last Night...

so last night at the Penthouse, thats above The Freebutt, in Brighton, a night called SHY GUY happened, it was too much fun




i dont know why boaboa hadnt post this when he first started playing this over a month ago, as now its EVERYWHERE, but i still reckon he is one of the pioneers of this track, and a true clarks solider



great sunshine music

Katie Stelmanis // Private Life



Katie Stelmanis or Private Life, depending on what day of the week it is, have this great haunting charm about them. with her reverbed and echoed vocals and layered sounds, its quiet easy to get lost. the full length album comes out in the fall of this year, really looking forward to it

check out "Believe Me"
