There’s a person out there who knows why I have been listening to this almost constantly.

Krinkle, Honest and Ben Pearce are three producers that are really killing it for at the moment. This is an anthem. Partly for nostalgic reasons because it takes me back to the time I only ever listened to garage. Melodic garage/house sampling dream like vocals (Think this is Alicia Keys) mixed immaculately is my absolute weakness.

Kyogi- You were (Honest remix)

I dare you to not feel as high as a fucking kite listening to this! Reminds me of a lot of Blood Diamonds stuff.

Josh Butler- Got a Feeling

Played this in Vegas when I DJ’d for the first time to a bunch of bewildered club goers who weren’t really sure what kind of stuff I was going to play. I gambled with this and it went off.

Makes me think of being young in the car somewhere and my mum constantly putting on Judge Jules and Pete tong club mixes, but the production is just a fresher bigger version and it sounds so big. I’m mega into house/garage stuff at the moment and this tune is the cream of the crop. So much so I made him the priority to remix Burn for me and I am obsessed with it.

This reminds me of the Bruno tour as they played it right before their set and I have real fond memories of his band and crew just being delightful. It also never failed to get everyone pumped before my show. Turn around, stick it out, show the world you got a…

Ginger and the Ghost- One Type of Dark (Ta Ku remix)
I’ve been really enjoying Ta Ku remixes, the Flume one slayed. But there’s something about the arrangement of this one that gets me- its my most played outdoors running song because I pretend I’m running away from zombies in some kind of video game.

London Grammar- Wasting my Young Years

I’m terrible for indulging myself into perfectly sad and heartbreaking songs, especially when a song like this is sung by someone pretty young. Her vocal cuts deep, I haven’t felt this way about a female vocalist in a while. I think she could go to a very special place as an artist in the next few years.

Polica- Chain my Name

I’ve been waiting for the new record in eager anticipation and I liked this the second it kicks in. Soundtrack for everything and anything- it all just really mesmerizes me.
