February SoundCloud Playlist: 2 Obsessions, Andrew Ashong & Grandbrothers’ Ezra Was Right

February SoundCloud Playlist: 2 Obsessions, Andrew Ashong & Grandbrothers’ Ezra Was Right |

2 tracks I’m obsessed with on this month’s SoundCloud playlist – the long awaited new Andrew Ashong track “Never Dreamed” and the epic “Ezra Was Right” by German duo Grandbrothers. Andrew Ashong’s smoky, soulful R&B sensibility references the oldies like Roy Ayers and Shuggie Otis while adding touches of modernity through his use of organic … Continue reading

October 2013 SoundCloud Playlist – New Rainy Milo and Yuna x Robin Hannibal

Found some musical gems in this month’s SoundCloud playlist. Pay special attention to 17 year old UK singer, Rainy Milo’s new track “Don’t regret me” and relish in her refreshingly London accented, hazy jazz infused hip-hop beats. Also take note of Eprom’s remix of Kendrick Lamar’s M.A.A.D. City – best heard as you work out … Continue reading

June 2013 Spotify Playlist – Rachel Sweet, The Beatnuts and a little music trivia

This month’s Spotify playlist is short and sweet. With a rather obscure and very sweet find that you’ll surely be fond of – Rachel Sweet’s, It’s So Different Here (sorry the puns just wrote themselves!) Recognise it? You probably heard it sampled on We Got the Funk by The Beatnuts – love a little bit … Continue reading

May 2013 SoundCloud Playlist – Koreless X How to Dress Well Plus New Disclosure, Cashmere Cat & more

Another big SoundCloud playlist for this month with a track for every single one of your moods. With May being so rainy this year hopefully you’ll be spending a lot of time gazing out of windows watching the rainy days go by while listening to Koreless’ remix of How to Dress Well’s track “Cold Nites”. … Continue reading

May 2013 Spotify Playlist – Romare does it again plus Toddla T, Pomrad, Nicolas Jaar and more…

Obviously slightly obsessed with Romare this month on both Spotify and SoundCloud. He is clearly an artist with some serious sampling skill. His track Your Love (You Give Me Fever) shows off that skill with some frenetic soul-heavy cuts from Peggy Lee’s “Fever” which is looped throughout the track. Enjoy! 2013 May: Romare, Toddla T, … Continue reading

April 2013 SoundCloud Playlist – Romare remixes Kodaline and makes it way better plus new Kaytranada, Four Tet & MeLo-X

Bit of a bumper SoundCloud playlist this month! There’s something in here for everyone including Kodaline fans. The original Kodaline track, High Hopes isn’t normally my cup of tea – a little too mainstream-radio-boy-band sounding for me – but London producer Romare has really made it his own by picking up the beat, cutting it … Continue reading

April 2013 Spotify Playlist – New Mount Kimbie, DJ Day, CHVRCHES, Vondelpark

When you listen to this month’s Spotify playlist, take special note of the new Mount Kimbie single, “Made to Stray” and make sure you listen to it right. Find a busy city bench (preferably on a grey-ish day) and just sit yourself down for what will feel like an epic people watching session. It’s those … Continue reading

March 2013 SoundCloud Playlist – Ta-Ku remixes Justin Timberlake’s Suit & Tie + Anushka’s debut track

On this month’s SoundCloud playlist, hear how Ta-Ku manages to improve Justin Timberlake’s Suit & Tie 100-fold by adding layers and funky riffs that leave you wanting to dance down the street. Another standout is Anushka’s debut track; I have love for you, which is definitely one for the cool ladies out there. Enjoy! 2013 … Continue reading

March 2013 Spotify Playlist – Some new Bondax, Laura Mvula, and Ta-ku tracks

A nice little Spotify playlist for you to enjoy while you’re on your way to work. Currently enjoying the re-imagining of one of my all-time favourite late nineties tracks – No Scrubs by TLC – by the talented Australian music producer Ta-Ku. 2013 March: New Bondax, Laura Mvula, and Ta-ku tracks Wriggly Scott – Back … Continue reading

February 2013 SoundCloud Playlist – It’s remix month with Kon, Hudson Mohawke X Disclosure & Romare

February is definitely remix month on SoundCloud! Hudson Mohawke remixed Disclosure’s White Noise into what will surely be one of the year’s biggest club tracks and Kon worked his own brand of magic on an old school, legendary Donald Byrd track. 2013 February: New from Typesun, FKJ, Onra, Rhye & Hudson Mohawke / Disclosure remixes … Continue reading
