It has been a while but alas I return with some new tunes that have been on repeat on my various playlist's. Since it has been almost a season (Haha I really need to update this more for my millions of followers) I will make it a long post filled with some known artist and others not so known but equally as captivating.

I remember when Hot Chip first came out and how unique they were to anything else out there musically at the time, well nothing has changed. From their latest EP I have absolutely fallen in love with tune:

Hot Chip - 'Jelly Babies'

These days musicians are getting younger and younger, even I am starting to feel old! Thanks to the help of the internet (where would I be without you) I stumbled across my next artist. At 17 years old (his Soundcloud tells me, so it is verbatim) and already pumping out some astonishingly powerful tunes, he creatively combines R&B vocal sampling with modern bass and vintage 90's House chords; Apple Bottom is definitely one to watch:

Apple Bottom - 'Diamondz'

...I couldn't chose just one so here's another:

Apple Bottom - 'Let You'

Blue Daisy is coming up quite a lot on my musical radar and with the following instrumental track I can see why. Slow and lingering with its emotive undertones I give you:

Blue Daisy - 'Last Song' (Instrumental)

From his forthcoming "Eva Mendes" EP on HyperColour this Mosca track has me completely hooked; Deep, dark and bassy with a Techno accent = delicious:

Mosca - 'Accidentally' (Feat. Robert Owens)

Surkin has been a firm favourite of mine since mi teens so when I stumbled into this pulsating Electro gem by his alternative guise of High Powered Boys with Bobmo, it became an instant hit with me. Ere' take a listen:

  High Powered Boys - 'Streetwise'

I am major 2562 fan so when this remix popped up on my Soundcloud feed I was delighted! 2562 also known as David Huismans always manages to bring a new perspective to the Dubstep genre (not that music should be put into genres anymore) that incorporates elements of Techno, Electronica and many other exciting flavours from a vast musical spectrum:

Amon Tobin - 'Drop From the Sky' (2562 New wave Redux)

Next is a perfectly paired collaboration between Giraffage and XXYYXX. Both exquisite producers, the latter is just a baby (in biological age) at 16! The result is a song that conjures up vivid visions of hazy summer evenings with tunes blaring from a boombox, getting progressively drunker and finding oneself absorbed into the music and lost in the moment... hmmm 'lol', give this a listen anyway:

Giraffage & XXYYXX - 'Even Though'

From the debut album, "A Forest" this down tempo number from the German born, Christian Loffler is definitely one to listen out for. Melancholic and rich with meaning, the album is set for release on June 18th:

Christian Loffler - 'Eleven' (Feat. Mohna)

And now I come to the last of my finds, one which I feel is perfect to finish things on. I remember when Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (I know it's a mouthful) first stirred up a storm on the internet a few years back, now he is more powerful than ever! Playing at an abundance of festivals all over this summer, lets end the post on a high note:

T.E.E.D - 'American Dream Part II'

Thought I would introduce you to a few tunes I am enjoying at the moment. I would like to have made a longer post but the new job and general busyness has put my blogging on a short hiatus. Still, have a listen to these gems in the meantime:

Scuba, Scuba, Scuba. My favourite, so atmospheric! From the latest album Personality:
Scuba - "Tulips"

I remember first hearing of Orphan101 about four years ago and definitely felt he had some resonance however I'll admit I forgot about poor old Orphan a little. Upon hearing some of his latest work though, I can safely say I shan't be forgetting him any time soon:
Orphan101 - "Souls Are Made"

Bop - "Impermanence" (Blood Pressure Remix)

I couldn't find a Youtube/Soundcloud link but been listening to Wagawaga a lot more again recently, check out the Midnight Sampler Album, though I prefer the Mrepsican Album - "Maytime Daytime Sun" is worth a listen also:
Wagawaga - "Western"

Happy Sunday!

A few tunes I am enjoying at the moment:

Karenn is the highly anticipated collaboration between Blawan and Pariah which I can not get enough of! They have also set up a label called Works the Long Nights. I will write more on this at a later date:
Karenn - "Chaste Down"

Rising fast it's Enei, straight out of Russia, a country which seems to be a catalyst for creating some of the freshest forms of DnB and electronica at the moment:
Kasra & Enei - "So Real"

Signed to the French label, 7even Recordings, this Makoto track has some serious percussion going on which has definitely got my attention anyway:
Makoto - "Different Rhythm"

How about some Minimal Tech to finish of this post in the form of:
Pacific Blue - "Industry" (Silent Servant Remix)

....and done.

And after Winter there was Spring.

A snowman matey in central London:

I have only been back a short while and already I have been re-introduced to the unpredictable weather England is renowned for. Only two weeks ago I was traipsing around in thick carpets of bright white snow and wearing every warm layer of clothing I could find then fast forward to today and I am walking around the high street in jeans, t-shirt and a hoody. I am hoping that by next week the temperature with be well into the 20's and 30's - Well a girl can dream can't she?

Anyway lets not dwell on climate change for a moment longer! This week I would like to introduce you to Darling Farah. Darling Farah or Kamau Baaqi as his mother would refer to him as was born in Detroit but relocated to the United Arab Emirates where live music was not just frown upon but literally banned. Growing up, as is often the case, most of his peers at school were engrossed in the usual commercial Hip hop, however Baaqi praised MF Doom for his experimentation's between Rap and electronic music, though it was still a long way away off from the Minimal Techno sound Darling Farah was to embrace.

Darling Farah - "Division EP"

Though signed to the Civil Music label who represent a considerable catalog of distinguished producers already (Debruit, Starkey and Reso, to name but a few) the moment has now come for Darling Farah to create a steady amount of ripples within the electronic music pool. Baaqi confesses in an interview with RA to wanting a more "lasting" and "mature" sound and alas this is what is achieved with his latest EP "Division". His older releases which include; "Watching" boasts a heavy, Proxy-esque bassline and "Berline" emits prominent pop undertones. Both are prime examples of Baaqi's musical talents however it is with his current sound which can also be heard in his stunning remix of Starkey's "Lost in Space" featuring Charli XCX (I featured this tune in my last post) that are sure to tie Darling Farah firmly, not only with in ones to watch for 2012 but as an important musical figure for the future. You heard it here first!

Showing his experimental side here's the Darling Farah remix of:
James Blake - "Don't You Think I Do"

If you liked Darling Farah you may also enjoy: Basic Soul Unit, Axel Boman and Locked Groove

Other random musings: Omelets! I literally can't stop eating them, Jean-Paul Sartre's "Existentialism is a Humanism" - I get it but then again I don't get it, New Girl - As much as I condemn most American sitcoms this one is actually pretty good, and lastly, I might be getting slightly addicted to 9GAG at the moment hmmm.
