The sun is out, the beats are beautiful and we are loving life in our seaside city. Yes summer has truly arrived so here’s a few wonders to perfectly soundtrack those rays.
The first longplayer to get us hot under the collar this month is the delightful Body Language Vol. 18 by Tim Green on Get Physical. Whether you require lush pianos, compelling grooves and vocals or unhinged, tough, crisp tech and churning technoid grooves Mr. Green will see you right. As will the mighty BPM’s of Tiefschwarz’s label and their 10 Years of Souvenir Compilation, Flavia Lazzarini’s tasty Italian Aubergine on Zig Zag, the Detroit flavours of fabric 88 Ryan Elliot, the delightful electronica of Nick Monaco’s Half Naked on Crew Love, and the remix wonders that ensure Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons Remixes From The Other Side on Crosstown Rebels is a summer must play.
As for our June favourites we’re loving the various artists mixed to utter perfection for Moda Black Vol IV Mixed by Jaymo & Andy George, the ever on-the-button sounds of Remixed as Skream’s impeccable label Of Unsound Mind deliver house of the bleeping brilliant kind. And as for our favourite favourite? It has to be house and techno queen Cassy and her goosebump inducing album Donna on Aus. We. Are. Not. Worthy.
