Good news for everyone’s overall happiness and general well being. One of our pals has had a track featured onLuckyMe’s advent calendar. ’0.5×313′ is a collaborative of project from an enigmatic Sam Telford& Joe Durnan,under the guise of Space OST. Those of you in the Edinburgh contingent may have already heard this and for good reason. ‘Deep house’ is a word thats all too often abused in this day and age but ’0.5×313′ sets the record straight . What’s more it’s free on the LuckyMe site. So I say go and get it.
Always on the forefront of whats and new and ‘hot’ here’s a track from early 2012, by Mexican double act Moon Runner. Released on the German label Toy Tonics, Interactive Track is taken from the ‘Grandes Exitos’ EP. This track isn’t for everyone, certainly not one for the purists but none the less is quite infectious, a touch on the silly side and certainly good humoured. Much like the man who brought it to my attention; George Rowe.
“Ace Sukebe re-jigs of the idoru trio’s 1975 proto-disco barnstormer — sounds like Althea and Donna doing Labelle in Japanese — and Minako Yoshida’s 1980 woozy two-step, as thrown down recently by Ben UFO. 300 copies only.” Soundtrack to a Tuesday morning.
Another weekend comes to a close. ReviveHer on Friday, the Independent Label Market yesterday, a trip to Eldica today and a suprise set from Daniel Avery and Erol Alkan at the Lock Tavern just to round it all off.
Picked this up from Kristina yesterday. It’s the perfect way to finish an impeccable Sunday / ease you into the start of a new week. This comes from Big Strick’s 16 year old son, Generation Next hence the title ‘Like Father, Like Son.’ I’d highly recommend getting your hands on a copy here.
Tonight’s a big one. Going to witness MCDE, Mark E, Move D and Eddie C at ReviveHER (Corsica). Could there be a more appropriate song title than Move D’s ‘Too The Disco?’ It perfectly captures that feeling you have on Friday just before an evening you know will be particularly special. To. The. Disco.
Yes! Everything Todd Terje’s big Norwegian hand seems to touch is gold. Strandbar and Lanazarote have to be two of my favourite releases of 2013. These two do not fail to do the damage. There’s a full album coming out in the new year aswell. Swoosh. Hands in the air etc.
