It’s two slices of Groove Armarda for you today, although they’re both remixes. The first is by my favourite camp disco producers The Twelves. This is a more sedate slice from them, but it’s got all the ingredients that make a fantastic Twelves production. It’s still funky, dance-worthy but if it’s on a little quieter then this would go down a treat for a chill.

That’s the band Tennis. Not this (obviously!). They’ve been working on a new album called Young & Old which is a couple of weeks away from being released. Judging by the two songs on this page, we’ll have more of the same. So three and a half minute slices of fuzzy, pretty, sun-infused, piano/guitar pop songs with Alaina Moore’s delightful singing over the top. Continue reading
I would not put myself on record as being a massive fan of Dubstep. But that’s probably not fair, as it’s not all ‘quiet bit, quiet bit, quiet bit, pause…… DROP’ (kind of like this). I suppose the following is probably a Dubstep remix, but I like it. It’s from the up-and-coming Benjamin Francis Leftwich, who has been making waves of late and who looks like making it big this year. I’ve heard a fair bit of his stuff, and on the strength of his original stuff he deserves too. And if he’s going to get more songs remixed like the one below, then surely the next logical step is superstardom. It’s laid back, soaring stuff from a quality Welsh producer called GZUS. I don’t know an awful lot about him, only that he’s also worth checking out, especially if you’re more of a dub-head than I am. Continue reading
Chairlift // Feist
It has been a really long time since we’ve done an update on this playlist. Been slacking lately with my chilled music listening, largely because things haven’t really been chilled. Then I was listening to my iPod on shuffle and this song came on. Yes, it may be three years old now, but who cares?! With a vocal that pretty and a bassline that fun it is a cracker. And you can just close your eyes and imagine you’re somewhere so much nicer than wherever you are right now. Unless you’re already somewhere nice. In which case just enjoy the damn song.
Unusually, this installment is going to be two ‘Indie’ songs… no remixes in sight. Continue reading
Au Revoir Simone / Goldfrapp
I will keep this brief and to the point. I don’t traditionally like ‘pretty’ music, it is often too slow, dreary, or poncy (not the good type). These are two exceptions. The first is Au Revoir Simone – Backyards Of Our Neighbours, outstanding voice with soft floaty piano chords but there is still a subtle electronic hint.
