Mark Eitzel-Like A River That Reaches The Sea

Saw this guy at ATP a couple of years ago. He had a heart attack a few months later apparently. Surprising really as I thought he had left it kicking around Butlins. Thankfully he's back on form.

Herbie Hancock-Sun Touch

Hynoptic sun-lounging masterpiece from Herbie Hancock. Plucked from a stunning collection of songs that made up the 'Life Styles' compilation by Bugz in the Attic.

The Wicker Man OST-Willow's Song

If you've seen The Wicker Man (the original not the by all accounts very SHITE remake), there's probably two scenes that come to mind. The first is probably one of the most depressing endings in film history (see Blown Away or Arlington Road) where the protangonist gets burned alive. The second is watching Britt Ekland write naked in a bedroom whilst this lovely folk accompaniment plays on. Whilst 60s and 70s British folk isn't exactly my bag and probably isn't yours, the soundtrack is excellent with enough interesting sounds and downright weirdness that fits perfectly with a wonderful film.

Roberto Rodriguez-Fall Night

I featured relatively new label Fina Records here last year with the wonderful 'So Long' by Freerotation resident and all round good guy, Leif. A subsequent released also followed in 2011 on the same label by Roberto Rodriguez and like so many releases nowadays passed me by. That was until Move D started dropping it in his sets. Anyway music is timeless. What's the rush?

St Germain-My Mama Said

Back on the house vibe today with some early St Germain. Try and find someone into house music who doesn't vibe to St. Germain. Impossible.

Funky Chocolate-Deep Moods

Deepness of the highest order. Well known and loved in equal measure. I love music like this that doesn't really go anywhere. It simply doesn't need to.

Good Vibes 13 (Mixed by JWalk)

I've featured good friend, and musical bible Walkmusic on a regular basis for the past 18 months with his edits, mixes and recommendations. For his first mix in a while under the moniker of JWalk (and long overdue I might add), he's come up with something special for Hoxton-based fashion store Goodhood. Expect some subtle reworks, oddities and gems all blended beautifully for our ears.

After a few house posts, I've slipped comfortably back in the environment of chilled out ambient, balearica blah blah. This track released on Smalltown Supersound opened a wonderful Pavel Plastikk mix for Finger Mag. Lovely sounds for a Sunday.

The Invisible-Wings (Floating Points Remix)

Don't normally post up brand new music, but this is simply mind blowing stuff from Sam Shepherd. Even cultural wankers like the Guardian have noticed it's atmospheric subtle beauty. I still haven't got round to buying his double pack EP from last year (having some disposable income would help), which is a bit of a crying shame. Follow the link above for a free download from the Ninja Tune site.

Woolfy Vs. Projections-Absynth

Great news surfaced this week for fans of beautiful breezy downtempo electronica. Californian based Woolfy & Projections have got together again to work on a new album entitled 'The Return of Love'. This is a follow-up to the lovely full length 'The Astral Projections of Starlight' from 2008. The cut that did the rounds the most from that album was 'Absynth'; with it's other wordly soundscapes and subtle hushed vocals it was easy to understand why. Started many an imaginary set with this! New album will hit the shops in August.

For anyone lucky enough to be recovering from Freerotation this year, I thought I'd share some serious deep stuff from Derby's Atjazz. The amount of truly beautiful and excellent house music from the mid to late 90s never ceases to amaze me. I did think a lot of was just awful vocal shit for a long time. But I didn't dig hard enough, or in this case deep enough. This is ripped from an old DIY mix cd that's lying around the house, so it's pitch is a little out from the original. Enjoy nonetheless.

Fred P-Other Music

Freerotation is now so close I can taste it. Fortunately for whoever is lucky enough to be going, Fred P returns after a mammoth Sunday set last year. This is deepness alright, you should just check the whole compliation instead of relying on my waffle. It came out on Jus Ed's Underground Quality label way back in 2007. He is also returning to the festival after playing in 2010! Roll on Friday.

LHAS-Call That Jazz

Hidden away on the flip to the monster sounding 'Learning to Live' from last year, 'Call That Jazz' is a deep and moody downtempo number and to tell the truth has the most staying power of any of the tracks on the EP. This year, the man behind LHAS Jamie Read has already released a lovely ep on Housewax under his own name and only this week dropped 'Will You Dance with Me'; once again under the 'LHAS' name which is an absolute killer track featuring analogue synths and vintage drum machines giving a serious acid vibe.Good shit all round.

Kruder & Dorfmeister-Boogie Woogie

Three minutes twenty seconds of indescribable beauty. The K & D Sessions brought happiness to many. This however, may have shed a few tears.
