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:
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:
...I couldn't chose just one so here's another:
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:
From his forthcoming "Eva Mendes" EP on HyperColour this Mosca track has me completely hooked; Deep, dark and bassy with a Techno accent = delicious:
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:
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:
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:
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:

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"

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