It's not all about music anymore...



Yellow Ostrich – WHALE

This wasn’t the first track of theirs I heard. “Marathon Runner” came first – with its steady pace and spurring momentum I reckon it’d make a great running track.

But I wanted to share this one

Django Django – Waveforms

The intro actually reminds me a little of Flat Eric, but the similarity ends there – this one makes me zone out for a few minutes and just enjoy the buzz…

Frank Ocean – Thinking About You

This sounds like it should be Canadian hip-hop man of 2011 Drake – but it’s New Orleans-born Frank Ocean, who’s just been nominated in the BBC’s Sound of 2012 poll alongside the likes of…

Beyoncé – Countdown

It’s becoming a bit of an annual tradition for me to post an NYE party track, something that’ll get folks singing along and dancing as we count in the New Year. In 2009 it was Pitbull, in 2010 it was Gyptian, and this year…

Top of 2011 – Part 1

Instead of adding to the array of top 10 [insert music-related item here] of 2011 lists that are coming out as the end of the year approaches – I mean, let’s face it, I’ve probably written about most of the… Continue Reading →

Friends – I’m His Girl

Serious contender for my track of the year…

14TH – Hide Yourself

Found this gem of a track on blahblahblahscience – their myspace says soul/tropical but I completely agree with blah…this could be 90s garage. Not speed-garage….more bordering on house. 14TH – Hide Yourself 14TH are actually 2, Tracey Duodo and Tom… Continue Reading →
