‘Tis the season to party with rainbows so lets get our groove on with these sparkling wonders. If you like your synths hypnotic and heavenly it has to be Blondes’ Warmth on R&S Records, if your beats need to be experimental, ambient and psychedelic then it has to be Species of Fishes’ Trip Trap on Nina Kraviz’s label GALAXIID and if all your ever desire is eclectic it has to be Get Physical presents: Words Don’t Come Easy pt.5.
If you need a proud wiggle nowt will feel finer than with the Balearic techno of Cocoon Ibiza mixed by Nastia and Einzelkinf, the effervescent excellence of Satoshi Tomiie’s Abstract Nature (Remixes) on Abstract Architecture with Ron Trent, Pablo Mateo, DJ Sneak and more, or the soulful afro house of Good Voodoo Music presents Nu Voodoo Sound by Domineeky.
As for our moments of the month? Replicant’s Retrophone on Icon Series has us grinning with performances from Marc Almond, Boy George (as “The Twin”), Glenn Gregory, and Princess Julia, whilst Late Night Tales Compiled and mixed by BadBadNotGood had us late night loving and Running Back Mastermix by Tony Humphries has us grateful for this thing we call house. This thing we love. This thing that makes us feel Pride. Enjoy.
