Ollie and I are completely obsessed with Vanilla’s albums. Check them all out here on bandcamp, magical. This, that I found through Keats Collective is something very similar, sample ridden pure vibes. I am setting my week of with this!
Brand new tune from our fave Anderson .Paak as part of his side project NxWorries with producer in crime Knxwledge. ‘Lyk Dis’ is the first taste of the Stones Throw LP Yes Lawd coming out October 21.
It’s a woozy, sample chopped, string packed jam. Slow grooves and .Paaks ever present soulful rasp. It’s album time.
Absolute vibes from Lex Luca with these 2 songs. Housey grooves with an edge.
Harris Cole was trying to find out the chord progression to the classic Super Mario ‘Game Over’ theme and the result is this beautiful laid back tribute. So chilled and so lush it just sucks you in until you’re wondering why every song doesn’t have Mario popping up to whisper ‘Game Over’ in your ear. It’s a twinkling lullaby for the Nintendo nostalgia generation.
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.
