It’s Saturday night and before I go out I want to share some music that I meant to blog about a long time ago. Modeselektor are from Berlin and make banging electronic tunes. But these guys are generous and also throw in hip hop, electro and ambient arrangements into their productions. Their debut album ‘Hello… Read more »

I don’t normally post so many songs at once but I’m in a buoyant mood and I’ve been listening to these songs a lot which may have helped. This music combined with being off work today and a busy weekend ahead taking in Saturday at Oxegen has probably attributed to my sunny disposition. Plus Animal… Read more »

The music became watered down dance-pop. Sure, ‘One more Time’ was a… Read more »

It was mostly noodly electronica in which Kieran Hebden hinted at playing a song one minute but then went on a strange musical tangent for six minutes. It was a hint of what Hebden had in store when… Read more »

An oldie but a goodie, this set is two years old this week, but still sounds as fresh as ever. Squarepusher’s use of breaks and bleeps in conjunction with some atmospheric synth lines make this one of my favourite 25 minutes of music. When the beats stop, (which they do frequently) , they are built… Read more »

I’m offering a great live set for your ears from Dublin based Super Extra Bonus Party, who were formerly known as the Illegal Kids. The set consists of some refreshingly upbeat electronica from the jangly tones of Spanik to the bouncy energetic Mushie Shake, and the ethereal Softly which samples Dublin singer songwriter Nina Hynes….
