1.

DJ Seinfeld – ‘U’

Lo-fi house it may have been dubbed due to its pisstakey name and peers (Ross From Friends, DJ Boring) but backlash aside, DJ Seinfeld’s music is proven to have a big heart as well as a sense of humour. ‘U’ is warm and emotive and even manages to turn a Bob Geldof sample into something sweet.

DJ Seinfeld plays Galway on NYE and Dublin at Hangar on January 14th. His recent release on Lobster Theremin.

Bonobo feat. Rhye – ‘Break Apart’

Rhye, the music of Mike Milosh and Robin Hannibal has an elegant quality to it. When paired with Simon Green’s lush soundscapes as Bonobo, it’s a fruitful match. The song is from the forthcoming album Migration which will also feature Nick Murphy (FKA Chet Faker), Nicole Miglis of Hundred Waters and Moroccan band Innov Gnawa. You may have heard previous song ‘Kerala’ and it’s Gemma-Arterton-starring video.


3.

All The People – ‘Beach Club’

Smooth soulful indie atmosphere from All The People, who are three brothers Ashley, Simon and Curtis from the UK.

‘It’s reminiscent of memories of our childhood summers spent in caravan parks on the south coast where the actual beach club we refer to still stands. It actually started life as pure house track and then we played around with harmonies & took inspiration lyrically from ‘The Prophet’ by Kahlil Gabrain shaping it into a slightly melancholy, nostalgic song’

A debut album called R Together is to be released in March.


4.

St. Francis Hotel — ‘You’d Gotta Be Alive’

St. Francis Hotel are a new Irish act/producers based in London who have released three songs thus far but have done enough to be noticed by the wider world via KCRW, The Line of Best Fit, Clash, BBC Six Music and Spotify.

They previously featured here as producers of the song ‘Writer’s Block’ with Lixo and Trim but their own music is much more band-based, psychedelic rock, synth atmosphere with pop tones, as heard on debut ‘Mondello’ and its reprise of sorts ‘Beyond Mondello’ below.

The duo (names unknown) met in London after emigrating to Dublin during the recession.

Newest song ‘You’d Gotta Be Alive’ is the best of the three: a soulful psychedelic groove with falsetto and laid-back atmospheric vibes.

Ta’East – ‘Withtheshit’

Over two years since the rapper Ta’East first featured on Nialler9, the San Diego rapper finally dropped his music acknowledging the wait with the title “>OK, I’m Ready, which features his first handful of tracks including this individual track.


6.

Kemt – ‘100 Reasons’

A smooth lo-fi-leaning house jam from a Parisian producer that autoplayed on Soundcloud for me earlier this week. Sound! Buy the track.


7.

Formation – ‘Powerful People’ (Krystal Klear Remix)

Dec Krystal Klear adds some synth-disco propulsion to Formation’s new single ‘Powerful People’. No official release yet.

    Last year’s Electric Picnic mixtape kicked off with a track from one of my favourite bands Hundred Waters. ‘Show Me Love’ is a short piece of music that kicks off their second album The Moon Rang Like A Bell. It was later given a solo version by singer Nicole Miglis.

    Having released their music on Skrillex’s OWSLA label so a remix from him isn’t a huge surprise.

    What is, is that he got Chance The Rapper, Robin Hannibal of Rhye & Moses Sumney in on the act too and made a video featuring most of them. You can get the track for download at ShowMe.Love.

    rhye-woman

    From the white sleeve with the elegant font to the cover zoomed into the neck and shoulders of the titular woman, everything about Rhye’s debut album screams sophisticated.

    Mystery surrounded the appearance of Rhye last year when they appeared on blogs, with the two sumptuous slices of Sade-esque soul pop of ‘Open’ and ‘The Fall’. What we know now is that Rhye is the work of the Canadian producer Milosh and Robin Hannibal who you may have heard with Danish band Quadron.

    That the singer was revealed to be, Mike Milosh, a male, was most surprising to many listeners but as the title suggests, Woman is a celebration of a partner, of the physicality of a relationship and love.

    Rhye

    ‘Open’ is the debut single from Rhye, a duo whose names are unknown but hail from Copenhagen and Toronto and are based in LA. The singer’s sultry voice certainly rings a bell, of whom I’m not sure. The song is the first from their Open EP out on Innovative Leisure which over its three tracks (and three instrumentals) elicits a ’70s disco funk buzz. It’s out now from iTunes / eMusic.
