Huge apologies for the monthly silence! Things have got rather busy working weekdays and weekends! But that has by no means meant the music has stopped!
This month as always the genre’s are all over the place from the dance dub-step of Jakwob to the electrifying Scandi-pop of Katzenjammer (who are fucking brilliant by the way). It’s a crazy mix but in I think it’s all pretty killer stuff!
So without further ado here’s the March playlist!
Jakwob – Somebody New
This Londoner comes on stronger and stronger with each track. With a bouncing house beat added piano chords and seductive downbeat vocals from emerging artist Tiffani, the track speaks volumes, placing Jakwob firmly as one of the most talented producers around in 2014.
Katzenjammer – When the Laughter’s Gone
This song put me in an amazing mood. It’s country vibes and catchy warming chorus are infectious. You can’t help but want to get yourself into a rowdy Scandinavian pub with all the misfits and hooligans.
Linkin Park & Steve Aoki – A Light That Never Comes (Rick Rubin Reboot)
I hate to admit it, but this remix by Rick Rubin sounds better than the original by Linkin Park and Steve Aoki (BLASPHEMY!). But with it’s primal drum beat mixed with the tracks original piano chords it’s hard to hate. This is the type of track that shows just how well classical instruments sound mixed with contemporary rap and house music. Love running to this one.
Syron – Three Dreams
I’ve already ranted in other posts how much I love Syron. This is another incredible dance track from the feisty blondie. Welcome to the dancefloor. Ohohohohohohahhohhahhohh….
Nathaniel Rateliff – Don’t Get Too Close
Nathaniel Rateliff’s vocals are all you need to know about for this folk-indie track. You won’t hear anything that sounds as amazing as him over some simple guitar strums. The result is a real feel-good track from the Canadian. Real love for this beautifully bearded guy.
Nick Mulvey – Curcucoru
Another laid back guitar led track, taking me back to the days of Jack Johnson. Nick Mulvey has created a beautiful track with a brilliantly catchy melody. I can’t help listening to this, putting you right into the spirit of summer.
Tycho – Spectre
Sanp-Francisco’s Scott Hanson has hit the nail of head by creating a track taking you straight to back seat of Cadillac in the middle of the dessert. Echoing, cascading riffs mixed with electronica take you to new highs of euphoria. With not a single vocal to speak of this is one wicked track.
The Fresh Dixie Project – Break, Bend and Fold
Already in love with these guys for completely modernising jazz music for 2014. The fast, intense swinging grooves in this track get you well on your way to a 1920’s prohibition party in some spangly dress. So refreshing.
Tiesto – Red Light
I’m a complete sucker for a mainstream dance track. This one just get’s me ready for a night out on the town. It’s a shallow reason but I can’t help myself!
CuckooLander – Dum Dee Diddy Dum
This little lady was a diamond find. Fierce femininity and darkness never paired as well as they do like CuckooLander and this track may be just the start of a new female frontier for 2014.
Secret Company – Saviour
80s indie four piece from my hometown that take you right to the heart of an Alice in Wonderland-esque valley. These guys are killer.
