Music Monday – Series 04 
I can't believe its been nearly 2 months since my last post. I sincerely apologize. We have been wrapping up Front Mission Evolved at the studio and its been extremely busy! I hope to do a better job in keeping up with posting more Music as well as some new content ideas I've been thinking about doing since the site's inception. Hang tight and enjoy some of the new finds!
Tesla Boy – Runaway Man
Its been a long time since I've been this hooked on an EP. The productions of Tesla Boy are simple, but STELLAR, and a throwback to the times of tape decks and neon lights. Love the drum programming, and the A-Ha esque vocals. Hailing from Moscow, Russia Tesla Boy are pure indication that when done right; synth pop can rule your playlist, your soul, and your feet. Pick up this EP!
Daisuke Tanabe - Before I Forget LP
I heard my first Daisuke Tanabe record back in 2007, ever since then I've been hooked! His new record 'Before I Forget' is a beautiful ride of carefully crafted beats, stunning soundscapes, playful melodies, and intricate sprinkles of imperfection. I've gone through the album three times now, and with each time I enjoy it more and more. Pick this up!
Efterklang - Mirror Mirror
Fresh off their new record entitled "Magic Chairs". Efterklang are nothing short of awesome. Simple arrangements with complex instrumentation, beautiful vocal harmonizations, drenched in folk and fascination. Mirror Mirror starts with a mesmerizing piano line arpeggiating into a sea of sultry strings, and stirring stories. One of my favorite cuts on the album. Highly recommended.
Woolfy vs Projections – Absynth [Marcus Worgull Rmx]
Label Permanent Vacation has been on fire for me the last several months. Retro house music mixed with some amazing musicianship, and vocals (Sally Shapiro). On Abysnth, LA Native Woolfy kills it with his intoxicating work on the guitar. Meticulously placed vocals weaving in and out of this production. Deep House veteran Marcus Worgull does an outstanding job of keeping you locked to the groove with his clever but hypnotic arrangement.
[BONUS] Corduba – Cambio
Another Permanent Vacation cut drenched in deep.
Michel Cleis – La Mezcla [Charles Webster Dub]
Sir Charles Webster needs to be knighted already. King of the groove without a doubt. . Absolutely stellar remix by one of house music's most celebrated producers. I heard Mr. Webster's remix of La Mezcla several months ago via his radio show on Samurai FM. After picking up the record I personally prefer the dub version to the full vocal mix. Classic Webster bassline and chord structure. Ethnic vibes, with a seductive woodwind melody. Breathtaking!
Ripperton – Lardo
Beautiful atmospheric tune. Gentle, lush, with a lovely vocal line mid way. This is the last cut on Ripperton's full length record, which is predominantly uptempo tech-house. Really nice way to close out a fantastic LP.
