#05 Midnight Magic – Vicious Love | Soul Clap | 20/10/2014 |
From the Brooklyn based modern disco sensation that gave birth to musical babies such as ‘Beam Me Up’ and ‘Drop Me A Line’ comes a timeless EP of original music, made possible by Soul Clap Records. Midnight Magic is the real deal, an 8 piece “cosmic disco ensemble”, complete with full horn section and fronted by the extremely sultry and often haunting voice of Tiffany Roth. This is disco galore baby!
Midnight Magic – Vicious Love (Dimitri From Paris Loungin’ At The Disco)
#04 Huxley – Blurred LP | Aus | 20/10/2014 |
It’s here. The long wait for Huxley’s debut album is almost over, and we can tell you that it’s been worth the wait. This is not an extended, dance-floor focussed EP, but an impressive electronic album. Huxley dares to touch different musical grounds, all inspired on what’s happening music-wise in the UK right now. Garage, deep house, bass and even some good old drum & bass for the hell of it, with poppy, lush vocals here and there to finish the mix. He actually already finished an album two years ago, but after he re-opened that drawer he only still liked on of the tracks, took that one and started anew with the others. The result speaks for itself. On shelves October 20th!
Huxley – Say My Name (Feat Yasmin)
#03 Kerb Staller – Four Fingers EP | Leftroom Records | 27/10/2014 |
The Leftroom imprint marks a milestone 50 releases this October, offering up the ‘Four Fingers’ EP from Matt Tolfrey and jozif under their newly formed Kerb Staller guise. Recent months have seen the duo working solidly in the studio on album material for the newly formed Kerb Staller alias (Definition: – Pedestrians who halt pointlessly at traffic-free road crossings, holding up everybody behind them), which the pair will play live across 2015. Four Fingers is an outstanding piece of music, with our personal favourite Siren Song. Check it out!
Kerb Staller – Siren Song (Club Mix)
#02 Sid Le Rock – Burning Daylight EP | My Favorite Robot Records | 20/10/2014 |
Sid Le Rock has been a key part of the My Favorite Robot label for a while now, and following on from his fine album ‘Busted With a Bag of Bliss’ and some great remixes of it, comes this new EP. Featuring three new tracks plus various mixes it’s another standout package from both label and artist. The serene and supreme ‘Burning Daylight’ opens the EP with shimmering synths, dreamy whispered vocals and some beautiful vintage sounding pixelated melodies. A shorter radio edit and stripped back dub mix of the same track are also included.
Sid Le Rock – Butterflies
