salute is a favourite over here at GC, back with some mental electronic vibes. Check out salute’s other tracks here too.
Big love to our Not Like That friends for this release from Sunshower. Great EP packed full of huge stadium snares, punchy 80 synth bass and diced n’ sliced vocal samples. Check out the whole EP but my favourite is the closer ‘Virtue’. Grab that download as well and make sure you appreciate the artwork. Loving it.
Right, bit of fun to jazz up your Wednesday from Irish producer/DJ ‘John Gibbons’. This is a cover of Charles & Eddie’s 90s smash ‘Would I Lie To You?’. Have a smashing rest of week!
Another day and another gem dug up by Spotify. Their recommendation engine keeps on turning and throwing up big tunes. This time its the turn of the tightly wound pop funk from biLLLy. We’re big fans of ‘Can’t Blame‘ with its spacey percussion, catchy hook and unbalanced crisp guitar riffs, putting us a bit in mind of early Jungle.
Instead we’ve decided to post up his genius cover of Gabrielle’s ‘Rise’. Just such a great idea for a cover. Hats off. Unfortunately its only available on Soundcloud but give it a listen and make sure to check out his other tunes over on Spotify. Looking forward to many more.
Another excellent re-issue from Hawaiian old-soul purveyors Aloha Got Soul. A collaboration between GC favourite Mike Lundy, Lemur and Aura this sounds like an LP I need to own. Any soul & funk group is only as good as it’s ballads and here Aura do not disappoint. ‘Let Go It’s Over’ is silky smooth with a bottom end to match those smooth vocals.
The whole LP is coming soon.
So you might remember a while back we posted Hoodboi’s track ‘Closer’ and we looooove it. It is constantly on the speakers.
The remixes are here and this is an amazing one from Kid Froopy. We are lucky to bring it to you first. Like honestly, the way it is chopped up and made to feel lighter than the original is seriously a dream.
Sit back and absolutely vibe to this, perfect mid-week banger! PLUS you can download load it right here.
This is just pure fun! PUSHER (born Marty Bernie) is a Canadian Musician/Producer/DJ based in Toronto. He combines a weirdly youthful vibe with soulful vocals and a sharp sound to create a real 90’s feel to this tune. It’s one of those songs that you can’t quite put your finger on why you like it but you can’t stop listening to it!
A song guaranteed to cheer you up!
Excited to hear another track from Hiatus Kaiyote collaborators Silent Jay & Jace XL after seeing them a couple of weeks ago with Hiatus at Somerset House. They’re offering up a lovely slice of soulful R&B as part of Plastic World’s upcoming comp of new Aussie music called Volume 1. Can’t wait to pick it up.
Give them a listen (there is saxophone, which is excellent)
