Bit late to the party but our absolute favourite disco vapour monster Skylar Spence has teamed up with The Knocks called Amelia Airhorn … because why the hell not. ‘NY Is Red Hot’ takes a sample of boogie heavyweight ‘Take The Country to New York City’ by Bohannon and adds some extra groove. Great fun for this summer heat.
Dig into the whole album over here on Soundcloud as presumably its too much of a licensing nightmare to get anywhere near Spotify. Shame.
New spacey sounds from our favourite Kid Froopy. Nice and chilled with some electronic bounce to bring things home. Check it out and dig into some of our past Froopy repeats
Nice bit of squelchy Neo-soul here from James Vickery who has previously grabbed himself a Joe Hertz feature before setting out solo. No surprises that its Maths Time Joy on the production on this one. Big sound.
Spacious slow jam coming up from Colouring. Rich strings, subtle synth textures and a catchy hook really make this one get stuck in your head until you keep coming back for more. ‘Heathen’ is out now.
So happy to have Vanilla back with some brand new beats. Usually we only have to wait a year before he drops another album. This time round we had to wait an extra 3 months. Not sure how we managed. This time round its a bit smoother and less soulful. Nothing wrong with that at all.
One of my early favourites of ‘Moonlight’ is this great flip of Michael McDonald’s ‘I Keep Forgettin’. Vanilla’s signature tight production is there in full force as he turns the original groove well up with that punchy vocal and guitar.
Looking forward to digging into the rest of the album and discovering which sampled gems are hidden there. Something to distract me from endlessly wondering (and googling) ‘who the hell is Vanilla‘!
