the crunch of leaves …

October 17, 2008

… and the warm vocals of Milosh. That’s what October is all about for me. You’ve probably heard his track in the Ghostly Swim comp, but his album III is worth a good, hard listen. His silky, soulful lyrics make you wanna cry for the rain, the shadows. And the bits o’ beat and bloopy tech wrap around the human voice like a heavy knit cardigan. Sweet. Modern. Clean.

sinden wrap up

September 25, 2008

say   ya ya

we went, we danced, we were merry  (or horny, whatever the music does for you!)

HA

aside from his pompous, ‘i’m so bored’ attitude, sinden’s set was all hype and non-stop!  i didn’t expect that, but it was big

 i left happy because among many other bangers… these were played out:

rustie – zig zag

this track is freaking HUUUUUUGE.  wow, and to hear it on a proper system!!  delicious.  if i had a poster of rustie, it would be on my wall.  thanks to lorne b for this one.

and 

mujava – township funk (ashley beedles africanz on marz re-edit)

sinden played some different remix of this one, but the main melody was still the same.  it is the kind of track that won’t leave your head for two days, but in the end you’ll be happy for its company.
