If music be the food of love, then it’s definitely time to get to play on as we head into February with our tail feathers wiggling. Be it with the electrifying electronica of the wavy wonder that is The Sound of Valkea Vol.1 on Valkea Music, the seriously sublime world of grooves of Night Noises Vol. 1 on Night Noise Music or the Digger Factory must-hear that is Tommy Guerrero’s Dub Tunes on Ed Banger, your month of amore will stay sweet.
If you need a house lesson in your life this February then the masterful For The Culture on Nervous NYC by Oscar G will teach you right. Tribal house you’ll want to belong too, delivered with style and grace as the man responsible for some of house music’s most defining moments delivers. Again.
As for our February favourites we’re having a double thrills. Be it the perfectly described “deep and spacious house cuts, weaving lazy pianos and half heard vocals” of Tilman’s Tales And Reactions on Fine, as loopy as a March hare and just as bouncy or the ever-glorious label Nordic Trax as they return with the B-Side’s collection beauty that is Hidden Treasures Vol.1, a late bloomer that is keeping our life majestic, we’re Spring happy. Just how we like it.
