The beach is calling and Brighton is looking good in the sunshine. Yes June is here and we can’t wait to get our hot wiggle on. First up are the divine Balearic beats of José Padilla’s So Many Colours on International Feel. One listen and José delivers the bliss we all seek. Also blissfully enchanting are Bluey pres. The Steve McQueens’ Seamonster on Splash Blue and the amazing ambient pop of Thore Pfeiffer Im Blickfeld on Kompakt. Get acquainted.
If you need some jazz, techno and Balearic in your life (who doesn’t?) then Man Power’s self titled album on Correspondant will deliver whilst the diverse sounds of Jorge Savoretti’s Triskelion on Savour Music and the compilation Liste Noir # 2: Darker It Gets, Clearer We See on La Dame Noir will keep you satisfied all summer.
As for our wonders of the month? First is the epic Tiefschwarz’s Left on Watergate Records, proving yet again we are not worthy when it comes to these high priests of house. Also check out the brilliance of Life on Planets’ Curious Palace on Wolf + Lamb as they get a groove on so good it should illegal, the dark but always enlightening beats of Balance presents Fur Coat on Balance and the achingly cool Art Department’s fabric 82 on fabric. With corkers like these in your sound system it’s going to be a glorious summer. Enjoy.
