Thank the lord for things like this. Modern, edgy house music which isn't just slavish, old school revivalist nonsense. Though we do like that too, sometimes. Just not all the time. Anyway. Wunderkind Gerry Read drops this sparse three-tracker for Will Saul's Aus Music, a wobbling, warping machine groove, all tin-pot percussion and a man saying "numbers". Simple, but totally engrossing. 'Cosmoid' has a bit more shake to it, a more relentless, warehouse smasher, juxtaposed with gentle melodic arps. Very clever. The Nathan Fake mix of the title track is ace too, obviously.
Old farts at play all the way this month and though you couldn't exactly call this track a 'progression' from what Wu have done before, it's just glorious to hear them all back together again, an irresistible sense of triumph and drama that's impossible to hold back. Makes you miss ODB as well. The swarm is back on.
The new project from Scott Hendy and Ben Salisbury. Don’t know if this haunting, cinematic track is representative of the whole album, but it's pretty darn good. A fine example of a thinking man's Lana Del Rey.
Kitsune twist the classic Balearic sound with this modern homage, that fits the space in-between Daft Punk and Roxy Music. Fun.
