Every week, the Nialler9 Spotify Weekly Playlist is updated with new music, and in this corner, we share the playlist and highlight some some select songs from the list below.
Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul
Up De Flats (Sharda remix)
As Gemma says herself, her collaborator Sharda “brought an early 2000s Fairview Park feel” to this UK garage remix. Gemma did the business at AVA Festival this weekend.
Let’s Eat Grandma
Hall Of Mirrors
Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth are back with their first Let’s Eat Grandma song in three years. ‘Hall Of Mirrors’ moves the story on from the excellent second album I’m All Ears, adding a greater accessibility to their sound without losing their music’s magnetic oddity.
Incantation of Féile-Flow Funk
Having previously collaborated with Bantum on two tracks, the Listowel rapper Súil Amháin and the producer have made this unique Irish language rap track with a footwork-inspired beat.
Hell On Earth Pt.2
A track from Westside’s curiously-named Hitler Wears Hermes 8: Side B, ‘Hell On Earth Pt. 2’ featuring Conway the Machine and Benny The Butcher encapsulates how well Griselda can wear this style of Mobb Deep-inspired 90s rap style and make it feel current.
The Sun Made For A Soft Landing
The Australian producer HAAi is known for dizzying DJ sets and her music that sounds like dark techno and bright rave music all at once.
Time away from the clubs has allowed Teneil Throssell to make something a bit different again and ‘The Sun Made For A Soft Landing’ is closer to Jon Hopkins with breaks than anything you’ve heard from HAAi before. It also has a distinctly ’90s comedown feel.
“The Sun Made For A Soft Landing is a gentle listen that was made when club music felt very dormant. It comes as part of a two sided single with both sides showing the night and day of the music I’ve been making lately.”
Anna B Savage
I’ve been craving music of a grittier disposition lately, and the title track from Anna B Savage’s new These Dreams EP and the buzzing industrial guitar falls throughout the track falls into that category.
Sari Sari Raat (Moving Still Edit)
Jamal Sul is back at it again, remixing two tracks from the reissue of Nermin’s 1984 synth-pop album Disco Se Aagay with his deft HI-NRG electro style.
Rosie Lowe just released a surprise mixtape called Now, You Know, and the evocative R&B of ‘Paris, Texas’ is inspired by the film of the same name.
“Paris Texas’ is about escapism and wanting to stay in those dream-like moments that you know are inevitably going to end, so you feel like you have to hold your breath to stop time; as soon as you move, the spell is broken and life will continue. I feel that lockdown was like that in many ways; I enjoyed the slower pace of life and as much as I missed so many elements of life previously, I also didn’t want it to end. I didn’t want to get back on the running machine.”Rosie Lowe.
Say My Name
More electronic euphoria from the French producer Godford.
