Let’s Have Relations

Ralph Ziman

Brand new goodness coming from all angles right now. Get cozy and comfortable and let this fresh batch of tunes make sweet love to your aural canals. A little bit of head nod, touch of ass shake, and some deeper future soul sounds to keep your musical diet well rounded. Today’s visual inspiration comes courtesy of Ralph Ziman, who’s show “Ghosts” is up at the C.A.V.E. gallery in Venice right now (shouts to Nati Conrazon for the recommendation).

Gardens & Villa :       Bullet Train
so glad to hear a new album from this Santa Barbara group. Once again, my favorite cut from the album is a laid back, flute-laden groove with super catchy riffs and infectious falsetto hook.

St. Vincent :       Digital Witness
sharp edged, punchy horn pop with socially awkward lyrics is what this badass David Byrne protege does best.

Kenna :       Relations (ft. Childish Gambino)
haven’t heard a peep from Kenna in years, but he’s back swinging with this mid-tempo sleezy party starter that also sounds very Talking Heads influenced.

Estelle :       Maker Her Say (Beat It Up)
triumphant return of the reigning UK pop soulstress, going really crude and sexy on this one.

Jets ft. Jamie Lidell :       Midas Touch (Machinedrum Version)
it’s hard to be mad at this 80’s influenced, synthy house Midnight Star cover featuring one of my favorite whiteboy soul singers.

Justin Jay :       Le Voyou
this young LA based house producer is on a roll lately. Funky shit for the dancefloor right here.

Little Dragon :       Klapp Klapp
YES. Definitively. Can’t wait to hear the rest.

Jel :       Look Up
hard edged downtempo for late night driving or being a creep on the bus.

Phantogram :       Black Out Days
dark moody downtempo (ala Portishead) returns with a vengeance

Flume & Chet Faker :       Drop The Game &       What About Us
great collabo between some very promising talent on this EP

  • Dangerscouse


    If you haven’t already, get on this. It’s a free 7 track EP on Soundcloud and she sounds like a combination of Laura Mvula and Anthony & The Johnsons. ‘Haters’ is my fav track but they’re all good.

    As always, FANTASTIC set of tunes!

Drown Out The Chainsaw

We’re approaching that late Summer slow-down, but I somehow still feel like I’m forever on the run. Semi-constant trimming of trees outside my studio window for the past week certainly isn’t helping me find any peace of mind. Thankfully, good music (injected directly into my brain via large noise-cancelling headphones) generally provides the remedy. Working on lots of new music, and brainstorming a way to save humanity from the seemingly inevitable future where we visit fake tropical islands (oh wait, that’s the present). Press play and share my sanctuary in these recent audio acquisitions (shouts to Badkiss, Garth Trinidad & Jon Oliver for some of these).

Moderat :       Bad Kingdom

Barbarossa :       Turbine

Misun :       Coffee (Cousin Cole & Nacey Edit) &       Hills and Trails

Klaves :       So Fine

Bonobo :       Emkay

Flume :       Left Alone ft. Chet Faker (Ta-Ku Remix)

Mizz Beats :       Sanctuary

Tremor :       Huella (Frikstailers Remix)

José James :       Vanguard (fLako Remix)

Floating Points :       Wires


Deep Thoughts From The Outhouse


After a beautiful week in the woods with fam, I’m back in my LA studio catching up on the many gigabytes of new music that I recently pilfered from friends. In addition to daily swimming in ponds, jumping into waterfalls, picking veggies from the garden and catching fireflies at dusk, we celebrated the wedding of my own Ma Dukes to her new hubby. Best believe, I made the reception party get loose with a long set of classics (under a tent on a gorgeous grassy hill top). Belly full of fresh kale & arugula, I’m feelin juiced for this week’s parties, including my guest set at the raucous Tormenta Tropical party on Friday night alongside Paul Devro, Deejay Theory, Oro11 y mas. If you’re in the LA area, come through!

Flume :       Sleepless ft. Anthony For Cleopatra featured on the last MTR radio show, this crispy, soulful, downtempo joint is too good not to share

Mayer Hawthorne :       Her Favorite Song (Oliver Remix) I know, I shared new Mayer last week too, but this new single getting remixed by one of my favorite production teams around is making my week

Bosq (of The Whiskey Barons) :       Never Feel Cold ft. Mendee Ichi &       Paciencia De Jo ft. Tita Lima highly recommend this solid new full-length from one half of The Whiskey Barons (who you may remember, remixed a Capt. Planet song a couple years back)

Atoms For Peace :       Before Your Very Eyes &       Ingenue big names coming together rarely sounds this good. I was late on this, but big props to Thom Yorke, Flea & Nigel Godrich for a solid collab album

Madlib :       The Mad March apologies for the low quality rip, but it’s only available on 7″, so go get it

Rebecca Ferguson :       Glitter & Gold new soul, classic sound. Lookin forward to more from her

Hanni El Khatib :       Low badass indy psych-rock soul sounds, produced by Black Keys dude of dudes, Dan Auerbach.

Boom Boom Boom :       Out Loud love this group! Shouts to KCRW dj Aaron Byrd for hipping me to them. Seen them live twice now and I would bet good money that you’ll be hearing big things from them soon.

Lockah :       Platinum Blonde heavy head nod bizniz perfect for late nights, rainy days, or sexy time with that certain someone

Ginger & The Ghost :       One Type Of Dark (Ta-ku Remix) always happy to hear new sounds from this versatile Aussie beatsmith

  • how do i ask a girl out

    By showing restraint, maturity and sensitivity, you will be able to win her heart and asking her out will simply remain a formality that
    she will never be able to refuse. You can’t obviously call a girl that does not know you. Hit her with your best line and she’s going
    to think, “Really.

    Look into my homepage; how do i ask a girl out

Soul, Dub, Brazilian beats, House, and even a touch of Soca for good measure. Featuring new material from Quadron, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Disclosure, TOKiMONSTA y mucho mas.
