The summer is here (honest!) bringing with it the finest selection of tunes, all with the sole objective of getting your wiggling in the sunshine. Just how we like it. If you do one thing this July make sure you purchase Manchester With Love a compilation delivering a sound outpouring of love from Manchester’s world-famous music scene, showcasing both names foundational to its modern incarnation and a plethora of industrious new artists. A fundraiser with real heart make a difference by heading to Bandcamp.
And make sure you grab some fine July action courtesy of any of these fine players. The rework genius of Balance presents. Natura Sonoris mixed by Henry Saiz on Balance Music, the blissful Balearic 3 Mixed by Jim Breese on Balearic Records, the hypnotic melodies of International Feel introduces Scott Gilmore and Subtle Vertigo, the dreamy textured sounds of SW’s Untitled on Sued Records or Berlin wonder Dauwd’s Theory of Colours on Technicolour.
As for our must plays it has to be the right tasty Dimensions Recordings: An Introduction with artists including Byron The Aquarius and Obsolete Music Technology and the Brighton Pride teaser that is the Pet Shop Boys Catalogue: 1985-2012, a very special series of reissues of all their studio albums released on Parlophone. A peerless PSB discography, the purchase of which will never be a sin. Enjoy.
