Listen Well


I’m doing my best not to be jealous of my many homies currently enjoying the insane amount of music and partying at SXSW right now, but even the best playlist can’t compete with open bars, adrenaline fueled unsigned bands & stage diving. There’s always next year… In the meantime, enjoy this hearty helping of newness- a little more on the electronic/indie tip today, but still some things for the soulful crowd. Also, if you’re into drooling over vintage hi-fi equipment like I am, you will probably enjoy this site that I jacked today’s lovely turntable pic from (shouts to Ixley for the link).

Jerome LOL :       Always ft. Sara Z
nice to hear a different side of this half of moombah & deep house loving LOL Boys (who I guess disbanded). More from Jerome here.

Phil Beaudreau :       Won't Get Away
don’t know much about this LA local, but I’m liking this song a lot.

Mr. Little Jeans :       Good Mistake (YACHT Remix)
acid infused electronic sounds with some heavy grit in the mix courtesy of this team

Brother In Arms :       All This Love
my boys in the Bay (DJ Theory & J Boogie) have formed this supergroup and are busy making a very tasteful blend of disco, house and classics.

Flight Facilities :       Stand Still (Mario Basanov Remix)
this ever-reliable Australian disco duo get a nice trippy late night remix from the funky Lithuanian

Clean Bandit ft. Jess Glynne :       Rather Be (The Magician Remix)
bouncy and bright with a little wobble bass to keep it grounded. Another housey hit from the man with the magic touch

RÜFÜS :       Desert Night
more vibey house business here from these Aussies.

Holy Ghost! :       Dance A Little Closer
funky dance rock from this NYC crew who love to moog

The Preatures :       Is This How You Feel (Classixx Remix)
hello 80’s yacht rock! Nothing in here to make me mad.

Sohn :       Artifice
apparently this guy is very popular in the UK, but this moody (vaguely Radiohead-ish) song is the first I’m hearing from him

Milosh :       Hear In You
the voice behind Rhye (one of my favorite albums from last year), getting more minimal and electronic on his solo dolo

Recloose ft. Joe Dukie :       Deeper Waters
why not finish off with an oldie but goodie from this Detroit ex-pat who stays true to his name.

Any Way You Wanna


HUGE heaps of appreciation to all my friends & fam who made it out to The Virgil on Saturday for a truly epic Planet Rock anniversary bash (and especially to DJ Cato who surprised us with a customized chocolate cake). I felt like taking it back to some old-school soulful, funky sounds this week, so here’s a few gems I’ve been saving up in that department- plus some newbies that are pushing that spirit solidly into the future.

Harold Butler :       Do It Anyday
vintage stepper’s reggae take on a disco classic

William De Vaughn :       Be Thankful For What You Got (FKJ Remix)
this laid back low-rider staple just got a nice kick in the ass from upcoming funkster FKJ

Kerrier District :       Illogan
I had forgotten about this record produced by Luke Vibert in ’04, almost ten years old but still sounding fresh to me

The Temptations :       Papa Was Rollin' Stoned (DiscoTech Re-Edit)
another nice flip of a soul classic, this one from a soulful Swede

Donny Hathaway :       The Ghetto (Dmitri From Paris Inna Disco)
Dimitry excels in that subtle touch magic, giving new dancefloor life to one of my all-time favorites

John Newman :       Love Me Again
this one is probably old news to any Brits reading, but is brand new to me. Gotta give young Mr. Newman props for paying homage to the Northern Soul dance scene in the video too.

Jagwar Ma :       Come Save Me (Flight Facilities Graceland Remix)
I already knew FF were took inspiration from Paul Simon when they released their dubby edit of “You Can Call Me Al”, but this remix just takes that Graceland love to a whole new level.

Moon Boots :       Love Strong
this guy just keeps on hitting homeruns

Tiny Hearts :       Snow Cold &       Centerfold
new electro-soul-pop project from Wajeed & peoples, check it out

Starship Connection :       We Can Go All Night
my dude Teeko has a funk band, and they curated a sick compilation on Brooklyn’s best record label, and you should do yourself a favor and GET IT NOW!

The Internet :       Partners In Crime
on repeated listens, this is quickly becoming one of my favorite albums of the year.
