God Save The Queen...


While you're ODing on cake and Champagne, waving a little Union Jack flag and shedding an even littler tear, I'll be tit deep in a rever in Wales pretending I know how to fish. Breathing in the crisp, clean, Brecon Beacon air and leaving behind all the Royal Hoo-Har, Rah-Rah.



Cue a Dark Party anthem... Well, I'd like to think it is anyway. Excited about this evenings car journey to Cymru, on the commute to work this morning I popped this bad boy on the iPod and it put a royal spring in my step. I love playing this remix. It's a camp explosion of piano house and disco that is bound to get your Granny out of her chair, skanking in jubilation of the newly weds.

Have a good Bank Holiday. Dont drink too much Buck's Fizz.

SebastiAn Embody (Kavinsky Remix)


Always like to keep an eye on SebastiAn as he's one of the first and original big boys of the French music push from the mid 2000s. This Kavinsky remix of the new single Embody is awesome

R.I.P Gerard Smith of Tv On The Radio


Gerard Smith bass player for Tv On The Radio passed away today, following a courageous fight against lung cancer. The guy was so understated in their live show but was such an important part of one of the biggest game changing bands of our time

Our thoughts are with the Smith family and the band

Record Store Day...

was on Saturday. I managed to pop into Resident in Brighton and get a couple of records, one of them being the latest relase from Wild Beasts:



A bit of a different direction for the new album, which is available in May. I'm seeing them at Wilton's Music Hall, which should be fun, I've never been there before. I've got a feeing it could be an intimate affair.

Sons of South


So on a bored sunday afternoon i'm trawling through soundcloud after getting some mad spam attack from some shit electropop "producer".
As you do when you're bored on such sites as soundcloud, you start doing silly searches. Like "Luton" our home town. I've always know Luton once had a solid Hip Hop comunity pushed forward by the legends that are Phi Life Cypher (ABC) , i didn't know it was still going, and VERY strong.

Check out a few tracks from local boys Sons of South below, you'll become addicted! Everything about this is amazing! Below are 2 of my personal faves, enjoy your sunny sunday

Frankie & The Heartstrings



A catchy little number here, but its ALL about the video. My very good chum Rohan from Decoy has created a summer fueled, seaside masterpiece, which accompanies the song perfectly.

Check their website for more of the same, two very talented chaps...

Ladytron



Ladytron have just released a "Best of" and i always forget how much i loved them when i was younger. I was lucky enough to work on press for Light & Magic, which was probably for me their best album, BUT my fave song has to be this above, just great, the first album was more about being moody arrogant french girls with key boards than anything else

It's nothing long...


Someone pinch me.

When you wake up, and one of your best mates has just recorded a podcast for Defected, it's kind of a big deal. Zoo Look, look as if they're going to blow up in a big way, and I couldn't be happier. An absolutly HUGE big up to Alex, Sam and Craig on what will be a massively bright and world dominating future. I'm willing to put money on that.

Who the fuck are Soul Clap anyway?

Suuns


Having the pleasure of seeing Suuns in Brighton was a highlight, they remind me a bit of clinic but if they went the other way... Real dark, aggressive and moving vibe about this band. Something primal about it too

Here are some UK dates, you shouldn't miss them...

14th May - Liverpool, Mojo
15th May - Glasgow, Captains Rest
16th May - London, Corsica Studios

And here are some Free tracks to get you in the vibe

Sun Airway


Sun Airway just fell on my lap, and i'm so happy for it! Reminding me of part animal collective or even LCD Soundsystem, but with a pop vibe of postal service. A 2 piece based in Philly, recorded the album in their basement, who needs studios right? Here are some free tracks for your ears and a lovely little video

Oh, Naoko

MNDR


I've been keeping an eye on MNDR for a while now, and thought everyone would go nuts for her after doing the vocal on the Mark Ronson track "bang bang bang" but obviously not! This remix by Hervé of the last single is great, and hopefully push this girl forward.

Tyson


I can not get enough of Tyson at the moment. There is just something positively seedy about his sound, it's amazing. A real smooth vocal with a great late 80s synth line running all over it. Die On The Dancefloor was the first thing I heard, and then found out the new single, Out Of My Mind, was out soon, I HAD to spread the word! I'm shocked I haven't blogged about this sooner.

Die On The Dancefloor by TYSON

Out Of My Mind by TYSON

Also check this out too, it's equally as great!
