Tracks of the Week playlist


1. Shamir – ‘If It Wasn’t True’

Simply one of the best things I’ve heard in ages. The sound of DFA disco house filtered through a 19 year-old Las Vegas kid Shamir Bailey. Playful, danceable and both modern and vintage at the same time.

Shamir - If It Wasn't True - GODMODE [Official Music Video]


2. Talos – ‘Tethered Bones’

Cork blooms again with Eoin French, formerly of now-defunct Hush War Cry singing and Young Wonder Ian Ring at the controls.


3. Fort Romeau – ‘Her Dream’

Seven minutes of luscious ambient dance music from the Her Dream EP out on March 17th on German label Live At Robert Johnson.


4. Lxury – ‘Never Love’

Young UK producer Lxury provides one of the standouts of the recent Kitsuné compilation (yes, they’re still making them). Also check out his Chvrches remix and the pretty damn amazing ‘J.A.W.S.’.


5. Hundred Waters – ‘Cavity’

There’s a new Hundred Waters album on the way in May. I’m excited. ‘Cavity’ is probably the closest Hundred Waters have come to the xx-style dynamics The song is on iTunes.


6. Wallis Bird – ‘Hardly Hardly’

First single, from her fourth album, Architect out on April 11th finds Wallis Bird showing signs of sonic progression without losing her core characteristics. The song has a fervent acoustically-rendered rhythmic section that make it sound taut and controlled like a Simian Mobile Disco track. This is definitely a song that could look good on the dancefloor.


7. Rocstrong – ‘Go’Head’

Andre J.P Bangala is a Congo-born Dublin musician and ‘Go’Head’ is his debut track showing some pop swing, some funk, some doomy blues and is a bit of fresh air.

Rocstrong plays State’s Faces gig on Saturday night in The Mercantile with The Clameens and Carriages. Free in.

8. Shura – ‘Touch’

A pleasant soulful R&B debut single from London’s Shura. The video is an absolute shiftfest.


9. Future – ‘Move That Dope’

Pharrell, Pusha T, Schoolboy Q guest on Future’s new single – an absolute jam. First Beats Music product placement in a video I’ve seen too.


10. YOGI – ‘Burial’ feat. Pusha T

This silly big Yogi production is the logical conclusion of Skrillex’ dubstep, Major Lazer EDM and TNGHT’s Trap with Pusha T representing the rap force.
