Golden Teacher – Sauciehall Withdrawal
Scottish band Golden Teacher have a Chk Chk Chk vibe going on with them and their just-released debut album No Luscious Life is a fun release of electronic funk and afrodisco vibes. This album opener sets out their ESG-esque punk funk stall. Give me more.
Bicep – Metro
From a new Glue EP, comes this mechanised weapon from the two Belfast boys who know how to cut through the noise like few other producers.
IDER – Body Love
The London-based duo of Megan Markwick and Lily Somerville have been becoming increasingly reliable for releasing sweet electronic-tinged harmonic pop and ‘Body Love’ is further proof.
Yaeji – Drink I’m Sippin On
New York City and Seoul-based producer Kathy Yaeji Lee just releasesd EP2, on the Godmode label, the same imprint run by Nick Sylvester that brought you Shamir (before he signed to XL or turned to drab indie). ‘Drink I’m Sippin On’ is a low-slung percussive trap-esque electronic song with ice-cold house and pop shades with Korean as the main language.
Avalon Emerson – One More Fluorescent Rush
Fresh from her appearance in Dublin over the weekend, Avalon Emerson released this evocative track on the Whities label. It’s a building slice of arpeggiated magic, a rush as the title suggests. I’ll definitely be playing it at Lumo on Friday.
The Juan Maclean – The Brighter The Light
A new track from DFA stalwart that stretches itself out brightly across eight minutes of piano house accompanied by three remixes by Australia’s Len Liese , DJ Tennis and Octo Octa. While The Juan Maclean is both John Maclean and Nancy Wang, the latter has been busy with a certain LCD so that explains the deeper club nature of this track. A new Juan Maclean album will be released in 2018.
YouandEwan – Stranger (Glad Eye mix)
YouandEwan’s There Is No Right Time was a sleeper album hit in 2016, marking Yorkshire’s Ewan Smith as a versatile producer. For this new release for Luna Via, the tracks are deeper house cuts and ‘Stranger (Glad Eye mix)’ is almost like his take on Luke Vibert’s ‘I Love Acid’ in its hypnotic construction.
Complete Walkthru – About to Get Laze
From a new release on Irish label, First Second, New Yorker Max McFerren’s Complete Walkthru project has a throwback breaks club feel on the lead track ‘About to Get Laze’.
The Cyclist – Inhale / Exhale feat. Tanaya Harper
Another track recommendation to follow up last week’s, from the new album Sapa Inca Delirium from The Cyclist. ‘Inhale / Exhale’ is a fast-paced nine-minute track with passages of jilting bass, percussion swerves and Harper’s calming influence on the latter half of the song.
Joe Goddard – Ordinary Madness (Jeremy Greenspan Big Big Loves remix)
From the Electric Lines Remix EP 1, also featuring reworks by Kaitlyn Aurelia Smyth, Rimbaudian (DJ Seinfeld) and Wajeed comes the Junior Boys take on the trck, which has suitably Junior Boys vibes.
