Redinho : Sunnyvale

Redinho is back with a brand new album. Six years after his amazingly funky self-titled album – I still listen to “Stay Together” to this day. “Sunnyvale” is an ode to the 80s with elements of Art of Noise mixed with echoes of vaporwave and fun filter house production. It is a carefree and laidback funk. “Hellacious” is my favorite track which taps into a Mr. Oizo energy and spirit.

Soulwax / Nite Versions : NY Lipps (Dries Van Noten 2020 Rework)

We live in a world where Soulwax Nite Versions is 15 years old. Wow. To celebrate Soulwax is releasing a commemorative vinyl which includes this 14 minute version of “NY Lipps” that they made for a Dries Van Noten runway show. The juxtaposition of the addition of Nancy Whang reciting an Oscar Wilde poem throughout the song is perfect.

Daniel Avery : Petrol Blue

Daniel Avery includes a new track on his single for “Into The Arms Of Stillness” entitled “Petrol Blue”. A simple and meditative track that will leave you swaying in the haze of the moment.

“‘Petrol Blue’ was written in a studio at the very edge of the country. The views across the water without a single sight on the horizon always create a certain atmosphere in my mind, some kind of unknowing warmth. Real life seems pretty distant in those moments. The track came about quickly, in the space of a few hours, and filled the room immediately. It’s named after my own little space down by the water that continues to be its own escape and a constant source of creativity. I owe my life to that metal box right now.” – Daniel Avery

Sébastien Tellier : L’amour et la violence (Simple Mind Version)

Sébastien Tellier can often just be seen as a caricature of all things French but he proves with this “Simple Mind” release that he is a master songwriter and maestro of mood. He presents a striped down yet laser focused and yet still epic version of “L’amour et la violence”. It even contains a completely fuzzed out bass solo that somehow fits into this minimal arrangement. Also check out his latest live iteration of his band in this La Blogotheque produced concert for ARTE below.

GILA has always been one of the most consistent and focused producers of the last 5 years. His music hits hard on so many levels and has been distilled down into its purest form on “Energy Demonstration” – his debut LP that showcases his full potential. Allow yourself to be part of demonstration and support GILA.

“GILA’s music has been supported by Flying Lotus, Thom Yorke, Benji B, Jamz Supernova, Jacques Greene, and even Armie Hammer.”

M.T. Hadley : There Isn’t A Window I Won’t Look Out Of

M.T. Hadley is my favorite songwriter as of late. A songwriter that offers heavy, honest, insightful, fun and smart songs that are always stuck in my head. His 2019 debut album “Empty” is still in heavy rotation on my end and offered a touch of 70s pop class with 80s synth production – everything I am a sucker for.

His new EP “There Isn’t A Window That I Won’t Look Out Of” is out today and he describes it as “a collection of four classic pop songs recorded solely on instruments over 400 years old including the violin. It gleams and glistens as it deftly slices through the ????????????????ℙ???? ???????????? ????????????????ℙ???? of the modern, whizzing pop which surround it.” A beautiful and soothing collection of songs that are a perfect follow up to his polished and well produced album. The EP closes with a fun cover of Robert Wyatt’s “Signed Curtain”.

Dance System : Where’s The Party At?

A full on nostalgic club banger record full of collabs and sounds that will remind us of why we truly miss clubs in 2020. Dance System fka L-Vis 1990 teams up with India Jordan, Hudson Mohawke, A-Trak, Lauren Flax and many more on each track – a big way to usher in his new label, System Records.

“The mixtape follows the narrative of a banging party (featuring interludes of smoking area chat and general crowd ambience), a touch that feels all the more poignant in a time when parties are still out of reach. As Connolly explains, “We can’t go to the club, and we can’t play out, so it’s taken me full circle, back to those teenage days in my bedroom; lying in bed with my headphones on listening to music. Back then, I had to imagine what clubs were like and now the whole world is in the same situation; it’s all out of reach and we can only go there in our imagination.” – System Records
