Kelis – “Milkshake” (Back Talk Remix) // Vasilis Avramidis

Hide your kids! Hide your wife! Electro is back in town courtesy of this weird new LA/Seattle duo Back Talk who have just thrown Kelis’ “Milkshake” on the ground of a booze-stained dance floor circa 2008. If you remember those years fondly then push that strobe light to the max and keep this on repeat all weekend! (Anyone in LA should catch them at tomorrow at The Echoplex!)

Fort Lean – “Easily” + “New Hobbies” (Video)

It’s a big week for Fort Lean! Their album Quiet Day is finally out in Europe! And they dropped a video for “New Hobbies” (below). AND they have 2 brand new tracks out! “Easily” is on heavy rotation around here with it’s laid back grind/groove fitting perfectly with this Summer sun sitting outside my window. The more I listen, the more I want to get outside! But then I watch the “New Hobbies” video and get scared about ever leaving the house again…

Vinyl fans, be sure to catch “Might’ve Misheard” on Vinyl Moon Volume 006! And then get their full Quiet Day LP pressed mustard yellow from Ooh La La Records.




[PREMIERE] Skyes – “Dry” (Video)

Anyone paying attention knows I love me some Skyes and that their song “Dry” is my absolute jam. So its an honor to premiere their new video for it and all of it’s paranoid party vibe glory. The song is already beautifully haunting so its fitting that he video follows suit. Start your weekend off with a healthy dose of skepticism for everyone around you! Or at least start it off with “Dry” on repeat :)

Dive into the full Quarks EP and check out “Dry” on Vinyl Moon Volume 009.

p.s. Keen eyes will catch Ben from Paperwhite in the video!


The Saxophones – “If You’re on the Water” // Ken Resen

The track was inspired by a summer week that saw suicide, the transition of a relationship, and Alexi and his Father’s near death experience in a boating accident. The album pays tribute to the currents of beauty, sorrow and regret that run through our lives.

The sparkle of the sun on the water has an inherent draw for most people. I can only imagine how that beckoning glimmer changes with the new context of a near death experience. Here, sit next to me and contemplate that as we drift off to The Saxophones and imagine our feet in the water and our butts safely planted on a dock somewhere.

Laura Misch – “Flow” + “I Adore” // Gregory Block

If I was a shell caught in the ebb and flow of the tides washing along an endless shoreline then this is the song I’d want on repeat for those millennia.

And when the waves stopped I would want to dry out to this one…



Abraham Tilbury – “Morphine” // Patrik Andiné

When the world gets a bit too gray and cold to handle then hide under the blanket of Abraham Tilbury’s voice. The man formerly known as Allthingslost is as smooth and beautiful as ever on this new one.

I am very proud to have had Abraham’s song “Deceit” on Vinyl Moon Volume 010.

[PREMIERE] AR Ferdinand – “Vespucci Beach” (Ft. Carlos Neda & Josh Oleo) // Isabella Nazzarri

“Me and my friend Diego Baraona (of 3 Piece Meal) got together one day for a bit of a jam with no real intentions in mind. Before long Diego came up with a guitar riff that I started working drums & bass to, and almost straight away we knew we had something really special going on.” – AR Ferdinand

Anyone truly enjoying this Labor Day Weekend will have likely done so with the help of some friends. It made for a good time, no doubt. And its that same simple recipe AR Ferdinand used when recruiting his friends for this beautiful piece of laid back bun-warming goodness. The perfect jam to crank up loud as you cruise back home from whatever magical place the weekend has taken you.

Released on Surfin Wavs Records.

The Academic – “Mixtape 2003” // Natalie Dombois

As if the mere idea of revisiting a personal mixtape from 2003 wasn’t enough to unleash some reserves of youthful energy, The Academic’s song about it has plenty of juice to spare as well. Pardon me while I rock the F out.

Marsicans – “Far Away (Saudade)” // Emma Haworth

Marsican’s helpfully explain:

“Saudade, n. portuguese – a feeling of longing, melancholy, or nostalgia”

Which helps this make more sense


So when you can’t convey
Can’t find the words to say
You’re feeling Saudade you know
I’ll never be that far away.

Or just crank it up and shine a but of Summer on your rainy day. I am.

From The Absence EP.

Jazz Morley – “Take Me Down” (New Immunity Remix) // Shang Chengxiang

If listening to a Jazz Morley jam is like riding the seas on the tail of a whale then this New Immunity remix is the rippling rainbow opening up in the sky above the water. Pardon me while I put on my sunglasses and try and compose myself…

I love hearing more from Jazz Morley! And now I got to dig more into these New Immunity guys… Very nice…

THEY. – “Deep End” // Endre Penovác

They may take some cues from The Weeknd but while he spills his tears in the punch they are creeping through the dance floor with way more sinister things on their mind.

Rival Cavves know that even a fool with a heart of ice like yourself has some dance moves hidden away somewhere. Break em out with “Controlled”! Then recover (emotionally) with the healing powers of “Slow”.

Cats Hero – “Feel It” // Matthew Houston

Long ago Cat’s Hero dropped one of my favorite remixes of 2010. Finally we have some original jams from the guy and I couldn’t be sweating more. Trying to make my body as elastic as this bass line is not easy!
