Róisín Murphy - Mastermind

Non nascondo l'influenza del fascino di Róisín su di me, come resistere?
Ormai da alcuni anni la sua carriera è indirizzata a sviluppare le proprio idea grazie alla collaborazione del compagno Sebastiano Properzi ('Mi Senti') e del produttore Eddie Stevens (ultimo album 'Hairless Toys').
Ancora Stevens la sta affiancando per il seguito di 'Hairless Toys' di cui conosciamo il titolo 'Take Her Up to Monto' e una prima traccia intitolata 'Mastermind'.
Da non perdere!

Metroplane - Mr. E

Nuova interessantissima collaborazione fra Alext Metric ed Aeroplane da cui nasce il singolo 'Mr E' sotto il nome di Metroplane.
Vanno sempre più di moda queste collaborazioni, anche di artisti 'pop' molto famosi (vedi Jack Ü) forse dettate dal fatto che ormai si lavora per creare singoli di successo e non molto su progetti più ampi come album. Potere dello streaming? :)

Già dal primo ascolto si notano da un lato lo stile nu-disco italo-belga di Aeroplane condito del ritmo allegro scandito dalle percussioni che l'inglese Alex Metric non lesina mai.
Direi che non manca niente. Avanti così!

Hervé - Bang The Drum [Skint]

Producer, Remixer & DJ, Hervé is back with his eagerly awaited second studio album, ‘Hallucinated Surf’ ahead of its release on June 17th 2016 via Skint Records.

‘Hallucinated Surf’ sees Hervé’s diverse production styles exhibited to the fullest throughout and features a number of standout collaborations with the likes of Zebra Katz, Meridian Dan and Steve Mason. The album is also split into two parts, the first comprising of Hervé’s signature bass house sound, which was recorded entirely at his studio in London. The second half of the album explores a more downtempo and experimental style which Hervé recorded in the countryside, demonstrating a more conceptual side to his work and a progression of his album, ‘The Art of Disappearing’.

Hervé (Josh Harvey) has become famous over the years for his unique sound; he’s previously collaborated with the likes of Fatboy Slim and Armand Van Helden, and has two albums and two Essential Mixes under his belt - one as Hervé and one under his The Count alias, alongside fellow producer Sinden.

Perfectly positioned to kick off his 2016 with a real statement, ‘Hallucinated Surf’ is an amalgamation of his renowned talent as a House DJ fused with an ethereal and serene style of music which lends itself completely to Hervé’s unique sound.

Midland - Blush (Graded)

Though it would be presumptuous to predict a *Track of Summer 2016* in the modest month of April – sod that, we're going to do it anyway. After a short while finely tuning the sample-based house and disco ReGraded sub-label, Midland reopens the doors to his original Graded imprint with a release that's well worth shouting about. Catalogue number #003 comes in the form of three-track Blush EP, with an opening title track that highlighted Midland's own BR set at Dekmantel last summer. A token example of Midland's ability to create authentic, instantly catchy dance music – with a hook that's guaranteed to woo hearts across many dancefloors worldwide.
