Just discovered this track and loving this and the artist, apparently he has been knocking around producing for 13 years and I can’t wait to listen to more.
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.
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‘!

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.
