Everybody loves the sunshine and it seems only fitting that we should help provide a right decent soundtrack for the rays. If you want to be seduced by beats look no further than Puro Desert Lounge Volume Five Compiled & Mixed by Ben Sowton & Sebas Ramis. Hypnotic and stylish it will enhance any sunshine moment you fancy. As will the beautiful soul searching melodies of Damon Albarn’s Everyday Robots on Parlophone Records. Worthy of a delightful delve.
Others to adore this May include the stunning sound adventures of Asadinho presents Dendrology on RvS Music, a real lesson the art of production and remixes, the must-hear Scandinavian electronica of Giana Factory’s Lemon Moon on Questions and Answers and the intriguing intergalactic beats of Bottin Punica Fides on Bearfunk. Most wonderful.
As for May’s wowsers it has to be the mouth-watering session that is Watergate 16: La Fleur. Endlessly on repeat, this lovingly compiled and mixed compilation from Swedish sweetpea La Fleur has had us hooked since first play. Get her. And get this. Horse Meat Disco Vol IV on Strut Records is guaranteed to soundtrack your summer with its cooler than cool disco cuts and remixes. It has us in the kind of spin Zanussi would be proud of as the boys come up trumps once more.
And finally respect for Frankie Knuckles. RIP dear sir. You made the dancefloor a wonderful place and we will always feel Your Love. Stream the wonderful Seamus Haji Knuckles tribute mix at http://bit.ly/1mIIE4P Enjoy.
