In a bid to encourage myself to run more regularly, I’ve been focusing more on the soundtrack to my fitness while running so I’ve decided to share it here with you guys.

So in effort to increase the commitment, here’s the start of a new Spotify playlist series, the Running Workout Playlist.

It’ll be updated monthly (or as often as possible). It’ll feature music that is electronic and disco-based, music I find suitable for a run.

The updated edition (July 17) features tracks from Chemical Brothers, Chic, Change, New Jackson, Daphni, DJ Hell, Lauer and Prince.

Let me know if it works for you.

Someone has uploaded the whole BBC stream from Gorillaz’ Glasto performance on Friday night to Megaupload. At 97 minutes long, the set took in 17 songs with guest appearances from Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Snoop Dogg, Bobby Womack, Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano, Pharcyde’s Bootie Brown, Kano, Bashy, De La Soul, Mark E. Smith, Shaun Ryder, Lou Reed and of course, half of The Clash in the Gorillaz live band alongside Damon Albarn. Stellar. I can’t wait to see them at The O2 in September. Full set-list below. [Via]

Portugal’s Buraka Som Sistema debut album Black Diamond came out week and the band have released a 20 minute mixtape full of banging ghettotech tunes, mostly their own. The Kano collaboration sounds really good here and I’m liking Drop the Lime’s dub bass remix of ‘Sound of Kuduro’ It’s an intense skank and move.

  1. Buraka Som Sistema: “Intro”
  2. DJ Malvado: “Puto Mekie”
  3. Radioclit: “Secousse (Crookers remix)”
  4. Buraka Som Sistema: “Skank & Move” [ft. Kano]
