Music by “Halls”

Halls – Lifeblood. from Ben Symonds on Vimeo.

Halls – I Am Not Who You Want from The Sounds Of Sweet Nothing on Vimeo.

I really like music by Halls. It’s the solo project of south London-based musician Samuel Howard.  He combines “looped electronic samples with sparse vocals” with dense reverbs. The video for “Lifeblood” was created by Ben Symonds using footage from the BBC’s “Planet Earth” and “Frozen Planet”. Amazing outcome and works really well with the music.

Be sure to check out the Fragile EP on Bandcamp.

Uphigh Collective

December 4th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

Last night i discovered the Uphigh Collective. A group of musicians from Belgium making tunes that as they say are: “Razor-sharp pieces of future soul, boppin’ from the deceptively light and skippy to whirlpool synthlines and hydraulic sub pressure. All trademarked by a signature lick of R&B gloss and sunken subs with ultra-sparse rhythm architecture”. I was quite impressed by their song “Blend”, which is performed live in a Brussels based radiostation and sung by DELV!S (check below). Amazing voice and definitely worth sharing again, although this stuff is already a year old. Strange enough, some tracks don’t have many views/plays on youtube or soundcloud. And let’s not forget to mention the label that is releasing some of their stuff: On-Point Records, rooted on vinyl culture and putting out lots of other great tunes. I really like the vibe.. big up Uphigh Collective!

Magical Music from Koreless

I fall in love again…..

A Newcomer from Glasgow. His music shaped from his heart and soul. Waving melodies, which breaks on the impulsive bass in beautiful fine and fragile mosaics.



Sepalcure – The debut album

November 28th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

The debut album of the acclaimed duo Machinedrum (Travis Stewart) and Braille (Praveen Sharma) is finally out. I saw Sepalcure in Berlin’s Berghain and for me that was one of the best dances of the year. The live show rocks, so does their music. You can still listen to the full length album if you follow this link (for some reason not always working) or check out the hotflush album preview link below.

The best of Quantic

October 17th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

Will Holland aka Quantic might be one of my all time favourite producers. His first albums released on Tru Thoughts in 2001 and 2002 are still in my playlist, as well has his new releases with the “Combo Barbaro” Band since he moved to Colombia. Tru Thoughts published an amazing “Best Of Quantic Mix by J.Rocc”, great mixing and selection… and important to mention, Quantic has just released a best of Album earlier this year.. Big up!

Ifan Dafydd – No Good

September 5th, 2011 // 2 Comments // Posted by Lukas

If Ifan Dafydd is James Blake?! I don’t know.. but this sounds pretty familiar. The vocal samples, claps and cut offs sure remind me of him. And the buzz on the interwebz suggests the same. Anyhow.. love this tune! And RIP Amy.
