Nu Genea – Gelbi

Taken from the new Bar Mediterraneo album by Italo-funk duo Nu Genea, Gelbi is a sparkling, effervescent delight, tripping merrily along on a rich, warm bassline with shiny synths and soaring vocals – performed by Marzouk Mejiri in their Tunisian dialect – keeping the pool party a poppin’. https://nugenea.bandcamp.com/album/bar-mediterraneo

Mary Lattimore and Paul Sukeena – This Time Juliane Landed Softly

Press releases are usually at best informative and at worst a complete waste to everyone’s time.

This is pretty much how I want all electronic music to sound: moody, atmospheric, sparse, beautiful. And yes, I have been listening […]

Bad Flamingo – Rolling Around In It

I absolutely love Bad Flamingo’s entire vibe. From having bascially no information out there about them, to putting random Oscar Wilde quotes out with their songs where a press release would usually go (in this case: “Give a man a mask, and he will tell you the truth”). Everything about them screams “we honestly don’t […]

Kendrick Lamar – Silent Hill feat. Kodak Black

I find myself in the minority whenever the subject of Kendrick Lamar is raised. Either people have never heard of him (legitimate) or they are somewhere on the scale between quietly impressed to completely and utterly obsessed. Like, no-one says “Yeah, he’s decent. Some bangers, but I’m not actually that into him”. That’s pretty much […]
