Playlist: Top 10 tracks of the week



New songs you should hear this week…

I’ve decided to switch up the format here a bit so you get to read about about the tracks in question for some more context if wanted. I’m going to feature 10 of the tracks in that way and then post the playlist every week with bonus tracks worthy of your time (if you have more of it to give). So here are my top tracks of the week:

1. Chromeo -‘Sexy Socialite’

Chromeo are always on time and this is yet another great slice of dance funk synth pop.

2. Nadia Ksaiba – ‘Virtual Lover’

London-based DJ turns to production via a killer electro-synth out now Erol Alkan’s label Phantasy.

Nadia Ksaiba - Virtual Lover [PH28]

3. Gilligan Moss – ‘Choreograph’

Four Tet-style intricacy meets Grimes vocal chops from a Chicago producer on a song that woke me out of my slumber this week.

4. Mark Pritchard – ‘1 2 3 4’ feat. Ragga Twins

A slice of filthy dancefloor ragga from the man behind Africa Hi-Tech and Harmonic 313. From the Lock Off EP. Pritchard already has a new EP lined up (2 of 3) next month called Make A Livin’, also on Warp Records.

5. Wave Racer – ‘Rock U Tonite’

When you need something ridiculous to perk you up or something to play alongside Rustie in a DJ set, this hyper track from Sydney producer will do the trick. Yes, that is the actual artwork.

6. Polica – ‘Chain My Name’

The second single from Polica’s second album Shulamith has earmwormed its way in. I’ve played this on repeat a good few times this week. Dare you not to sing the Destiny’s Child song while listening to this.

7. Darkside – ‘Paper Trails’

From my album of the week. This is a bluesy-reverb guitar-lead standout from Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington’s Darkside album.

8. Lasertom – ‘All The Time’

A standout from Drift, Simon Cullen’s Lasertom debut LP. Read my interview here.

9. Dopplereffekt – ‘Gene Silencing’

Brutal cold minimal wave dance music from the genuinely enigmatic long-running electro duo.

10. Psyche – ‘The Saint Became A Lush’

As heard on Trevor Jackson Presents Metal Dance 2 – Industrial, New Wave & EBM. Classics & Rarities 1981 – 1988. A song from a German-based Canadian synth pop band active since 1982, the year I was born.
