Throwback: Lauryn Hill – Everything is Everything

That soulful voice, that smooth beat, those clever lyrics: this song is a classic and it always will be. Hill’s vocal diversity is enough to make anyone’s eyes turn green with envy. Her voice just seems to bounce along the beat, buoyed by her own passion for the words – whether she is singing or rapping […]

Throwback: Jump ‘Chico’ Slamm – Feel Free

Some tracks – no matter what place you hear them, or at what point you hear them in a set – just instantly make you want to find some space and drop some shapes. ‘Feel Free’ is that kind of track for sure. The opening wastes no time, jumping straight into 4/4 drums and a […]

Throwback: LOGIC – Blues For You (Hard Dub)

For this review, I have delved back into the ‘golden age’ of dance music and rediscovered this classic release on Strictly Rhythm Records. Not many records manage to stand the test of time, but Wayne Gardiner has managed to produce a truly mesmerising track filled with bounce, soul and relentless energy that feels as fresh […]

Music: Normal Jean Bell - I'm the Baddest Bitch (Moddymann Remix)

Throwback Song: Norma Jean Bell – I’m The Baddest Bitch (Moodymann Remix)

Every now and again you come across a song and you know instantly that you’ll love it, something about it sticks and you aren’t going to forget it any time soon. I’m The Baddest Bitch (in the room) is exactly that. With a funky, bongo filled beat, a simple yet effective bass line, a mild […]

Throwback Song: Pedestrian – Hoyle Road (2013)

Each song Pedestrian releases sounds completely different from the others which precede it. Hoyle Road, released earlier this year, has become one of my favourite songs of all time. As soon as I heard it, the song struck a chord I didn’t know existed. As soon as the voice began to mournfully proclaim lyrics, I really […]

Nextup: Sade – Couldn’t Love You More (Florian Kupfer Edit)

Damn, this track is too good. 2013 has most certainly been Florian Kupfer’s year so far. Though relatively unknown to most, Kupfer has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting deep house/techno producers around. Kupfer’s raw sound, characterised by crisp dusty high hats and uneven phrasing has brought a new dimension to an […]

Throwback: Pink Floyd – The Great Gig in the Sky (1988)

Progressive rock is not normally something that excites anyone except for middle aged men. But not without exception: Pink Floyd offer something different from the banality of other ‘prog rock’ bands. It is truly progressive, provoking and enveloping – especially when compared to the offerings of their prog rock colleagues such as Genesis. The perfect […]
