Hope you are having a great weekend. I was hoping to have this week’s Five Songs up sooner, but it’s a long weekend in the UK and things seem to be moving slower than expected around here. Enjoy the playlist. –P.
“Last land” is one of the stand-out tracks on Spanish deep house producer John Talabot’s critically acclaimed 2012 album Fin.
Eyedress is the moniker of 23 year old Idris Vicuña, a bedroom producer from the Philippines. “Nature trips” is the eerie single composed on an old PC handed down to Vicuña from his father and is off the EP Supernatural.
Ben Khan releases his debut EP 1992 this month. The London-based singer/songwriter gained some buzz last year with the release of some raw demos on SoundCloud and has fully mixed and mastered these songs in his latest release. “Savage” has Jimmy Hendrix-style guitar riffs layered over a hip hop beat.
Blood Orange is the recording name of Devonte Hynes, a British musician who has also recored albums under the name Lightspeed Champion. Cupid Delux is the second release for Hynes under the Blood Orange moniker and probably his most successful album to date. “You’re not good enough” is a funk driven track reminiscent of Prince circa 1980.
