New Tracks

Such warmth in this short track by Franck Roger – played on a podcast he did, I think for Circo Loco. It’s a slow track, a warm track and with vocals that I don’t mind.

Franck Roger – Les Yeux Fermés

This track has a nice floaty feel and a groove to it – maybe nothing out of the ordinary, but I just like the feel of it.

Archie Hamilton – Dos Equis

This has quite a forceful techno feel despite it very much being in minimal category – at least it is for my ears. Hypnotic, forceful and with discorded vocal snippets running through. Very nice.

Charlie – Sleepwalkers

It’s a very short track at just 3 minutes long, but has a happy synth bassline with a catchy hook. Vocals over the top and could easily be radio played…so not always my kind of thing but I do like this.

Jimi Jules – My City’s On Fire

This is really quite a dreamy track – takes a couple of listens to really get into it. Almost more Ibiza blissed house but in minimal form.

Really struggling to find good new music right now – curse of the pandemic or are quality levels much lower at the moment? Or am I not searching enough. Who knows, but this is bliss.

Melchior Productions Ltd – Closer (California Dreaming Mix)

House music with such a deep oomph and groove, by the wonderful Mr G. A good 7 years old at the time of writing, but discovering late is fine.

Mr. G – Music For All

A dirty, kind of roar of a track. I guess you’d call it electro though kind of hard to fit it into a box. Would be immense on a proper sound-system. According to Discogs, it is “characterised raw analogue pure machine funk”. OK. But have a listen.

Ara-U – Battle Royale

Well, I’ve started going through Paul Johnson’s very extensive discography following his passing, to see what gems I may have missed. This is quite a recent track, I’m enjoying the upbeat triggerish jack to it, and all the computerised vocals. One for a real dancefloor moment.

No vinyl release sadly.

Paul Johnson – House Music Will Bang Forever

This just has quite an astonishing breakdown and a really good use of the sample. Almost Ricardo-esque padded beats and quite an adventure at 15 minutes long.

Traumer – Espala

One of those feel-good techno tracks that Omar S is soooo good at. Well, I call it techno – it is more at a pace of house music but it has a techno ethos. Enjoy the euphoria.

Omar S – I Wanna Know (Extramental Mix)
