Ah and the boy returns. Jai Paul drops “Jasmine” upon the internet, a slowburner of a tune that is propelled by a pedaling bassline. Jai Paul’s whispery vocals floats over the mid-tempo groove along with some funky envelope filtered guitar. OK XL Recordings glad to see all the $$$ you made off Adele was funneled to Mr. Jai Paul. Can’t wait for the album!
Clark is on another level with his latest release “Iradelphic”. Warp Records proves that they can find some of the finest musical talent out today and Clark is that intersection of all they are known for on their fine musical roster. Imagine if Bibio, Boards of Canada and Rustie all were wrangled into Clark’s studio for an intense month session. “Iradelphic” would be the product of that session. There is everything from pristine production, candid guitar performances, warm analog synths to well crafted songs. This is the album of 2012 that I have been waiting for.
Theophilus London teams up with Blood Orange to take on Pharrell’s “Take it Off (Dim The Lights)” off of his solo album In My Mind. Some serious 90s RnB sexy jams vibes.
The boys from Aussie are back in town – Van She’s first single “Idea of Happiness” off their sophomore album of the same name is a super concise synth pop song. It has warm synth sounds, hooky melodies and grandiose choruses – all things you expect from Van She. The album is out July 6 in Aus, July 9 EU/UK and July 10 in the US. Enjoy.
The Bromance bros are back with a new split release with G. Vump and Pipes. Jon Convex steps into destroy things with his remix of G. Vumps “Feelings” – a massive choon that will rattle the floors with its big kick and toms.

A massive collaboration from two of the finest producers out today. I had the honor of witnessing HudMo DJ in a living room in Austin, Texas this past week and he completely murdered it. I wish I caught one of these TNGHT performances but oh well, this clip clip of a new tune of theirs entitled “Bugg’N” will have to do.
