So here we go. Summertime is finally here and regardless of the cagoules or windcheaters required we’ll be delivering you nothing but sunshine grooves this June. Destined to keep things hot under the collar is the majestic acid sounds of DJ Pierre presents Acid 88 Volume III on Afro Acid. Yes, you guessed it, nothing but goodness, acid style. Just how we like our house. As are the sparse yet sparkling grooves of Neverdogs’ Details on Bamboleo Records, the life enhancing b.p.m’s of Jasper Street Co.’s Rejoicing on Nervous and the intelligent soundscapes of Daniel Dubb’s Grand Illusions on Get Physical Music. Purchase them all and life will sound better, believe us.
Add the corking compilation Wiggle For 25 Years on Wiggle celebrating one of the UK’s must-wiggle club nights, the artisan vibes of label compilation One Night Stands on La Belle Records, the wonder that is Quantic’s charming yet majestic Atlantic Oscillations on Tru Thoughts and the forever class compilation that is chapter 10 of Future Disco, the dazzling Technicolour Nights on Future Disco and your summer will sizzle like a menopausal Wildblood in thermals on a summer’s day. (Note to self: Really must change name to DJ Hotflush).
As for our must-hear wonders of June? Plug your soul into the wonder that is the stunning sounds of Tee Mango’s 50 Songs on Millionhands and you’ll be forever glad you did as his life-enhancing grooves capture one’s imagination. Or find yourself in the company of Man Power’s This Is Not An Album on Now Now Now, a power house of a longplayer from a producer whose doing good things to us. Just as Crazy P are 25 years since their debut with their sonic stunner Age Of The Ego on Walk Don’t Walk. Summer days as wonderful as this were made for music as goosebump inducing as Crazy P’s. Enjoy.
