Raw and juicy, like a particularly tasty Braeburn; that’s how I’d describe Disco Bloobath’s first foray into the world of record label-ism. That’s maybe because I’m a little bit hungry at the moment, but I think the analogy stands firm however full your stomach might be. All the version have their merits, but I think Legendary Childrens’ acid effort just about pips (ha!) it for me… due out mid-June.
It’s housey, disco-ish edit o’clock here at GetDownGood, this time in the form of Andy Ash’s sublime ‘Mason in My Basin’, a cheeky re-working of Eddie Kendrick’s ‘Darling, Come Back Home’. It’s beautifully done, balancing a solid groove with a lovely vocal sample. The Dance EP it’s taken from is out now on Foto Recordings. Enjoy!
The next release on Tenth Circle is Daniel Solar’s ‘Too Much Light EP’ featuring two sizzling cuts to mark the end of summer. Release date is as yet unconfirmed, but the wax will probably be dropping sometime towards the end of September. We’ll also be interviewing Daniel here at some point in the next couple of weeks, so make sure you check back for that. Nice!
Been a massive fan of Huxley’s music for some time now. His last release ‘Devoted’ on Morris Audio was an absolute scorcher of old school house vibes and soulful vocals.
Shower Scene simply takes it to the next level. Lovely filtered melodies modulate alongside tough driving beats with vocal stabs that will prick the ears of any house or garage fan.
One track that’ll be in the create for a long time to come.
New York rapper Hype Hunnets jumps on 2Deep anthem ‘Herbal Love’ to give it that Brooklyn edge. If you’re wondering what Hype Hunnets means, give it a play, leave your comments and we’ll give you the Knowledge ..
Released on Nu Faze Records (NYC) February 14th 2011
First off – thanks to everyone who came down on Saturday, especially those who were kind enough to have a bit of a dance while I was playing; had a great time and can’t wait till we do another one. This was one of the tracks I dropped, so if you were there you might recognise it, and if you weren’t it’s definately worth a listen. An oldie – nearly 10 years have past since this was first released, but definately a goodie, this is one of the finest Inland Knights tracks I’ve heard – and they’ve done a few.
NB: This is from an EP called ‘Steal the Feel’, made up of the tracks ‘I Do’ and ‘Turn’ – on all the download sites ‘ve looked at, the track I’ve posted above is listed as ‘I Do’ – I’m sure this must be an error, judging by the lyrics used in both tracks. So, if you want to buy the above track, buy the one listed as ‘I Do’. If anyone has the vinyl and could clarify this, I would be most grateful.
This one’s not fresh off the boat by any means, but was brought to my attention in Lee Foss’ superb Ibiza Voice podcast last month, so I thought I’d share it and gather your thoughts. Granted, the horns in the intro are a bit, well, annoying, but the break is so beautifully old-school Detriot and the vocal so well employed that it doesn’t really matter. And as I sit here, hungover, on a cold, wet Friday with the prospect of another 8 hours of work ahead of me, this makes it just about bearable.
Shamefully, this is the first time I’ve come across Maya, which is something I’m happy to put behind me and move on from considering the quality of her latest work. ‘What They Say’ EP ain’t out quite yet, but trust me you’re going to want to pounce on it when it drops. The title track is probably the pick of the bunch, but all four that feature are sick. Kinda Shonky-esque production, which is always a good thing in my book.
Recently, a lot of the music I come across – especially dance music – seems to have changed it’s roots. The synthy, miminalist influence of the 80′s has made way to the bouncy, overtly joyous themes of the 90′s…no bad thing in my book. Developing this thought, I spoke to some major 90′s influenced players – Soul Clap, Tensnake and Lee Foss – to get their thoughts on why the decade of bum bags and baggy pants are making a comeback…
This track has been around for while now but is a true example of internal emotion being expressed in electronic music. Detroit’s Pirahnahead, head honcho of Whasdat Music, talks from his deep sub conscience on this musical gem which simply builds and builds. Turn the lights down and the music up.. A true piece of inspiration awaits
