Ever Vivid – Lost Love

Take two steps forward, take ten steps back.

This really is a masterpiece from Nick Dunton – A hypnotic little slice of electro, as melancholic as it is euphoric with vocals that are as good as they come. I’ve found this to be a track that I can just stick on repeat and never get tired of, the slowly evolving chords are probably my favourite draw here, but I’m also a sucker for the vocals.

Dunton seems to have only released a handful of tracks across a couple of alias’s and you can check those out on his Discogs page here.

S.A.M. – Better To Have Loved

Deep, melodic blend of acoustic and electronic elements producing this humanised techno jam. Released last year on S.A.M.’s Dream State Of A Bellmaker. I found this to be a really interesting track combining elements of different influences to make something  quite unique that could also work on a dancefloor too (in the right context), definitely one for the heads.

Nils Frahm Xmas Mix 2017

 

To all of our followers out there, we wish you all the best over Christmas and hope yas have an enjoyable few days with family and friends. This mix should certainly help you get in the festive spirit and features an assortment of jazz, classical and blues to make ya feel all warm and joyful on the inside. I especially love how Frahm and Torsten Posselt use really old, slightly damaged records that give off that warm feeling from the vinyl crackling.

We’ve a couple of end of year round ups coming up over the next few days and then we’ll have some big tings planned for the new year too.

To everyone who’s supported, viewed, shared, loved/hated everything we’ve done over the past 9 or so months since we started the blog – thank you. Sharing music is a beautiful thing and it’s amazing to see the love we’re putting on tunes being reciprocated back to us from everyone who views the site and shares our stuff.

Here’s to the next 12 months of music.

Happy Christmas x
