Jamie Woon’s long awaited album Mirrorwriting recently dropped, with a relatively positive reception. The two big singles, Night Air and Lady Luck had already been released prior to the album, but I was also pleasantly surprised by Spiral.
The whole album is well worth picking up, but if you’re looking for something more dancefloor friendly, I’d get up the Lady Luck EP; the Hudson Mohawke is one of my most played tunes of the last while.
It may look like I’ve kind of fallen off the horse a bit, blog wise, but you’d be wrong. Or at least partly. Even though I haven’t posted in 5 days, I’ve been readying some lovely stuff which is now on it’s way, including a load of guest mixes from excellent people, the results of my Top 20 Tracks of 2010 Poll, and some cheeky roundups of 2010. So don’t worry.
For now though, I thought I’d pick out some of my favourites from the tracks doing the rounds on the blogosphere at the moment, and use the time to show you some of my favourite blogs.
In a roundup of the top labels of 2010, Electric Zoo reminded me of this gem, which I’ve never posted before, even though it’s one of my favourite tracks of the year. Quality track, and quality roundup.
Truants, who continually impress me, did just that with their latest installment of their Sunday’s Best feature. First they pull out this beautiful edit of one of my favourite classic funk tracks, Let It Whip (I’ve included the original because it’s that good), then this great remix of Jamie Woon’s wonderful Night Air, and because they’re that good, they get three tracks in here, the last being the only ‘epic 320 bang0r’ in this list, Ado’s latest offering Multiply Me. In summary, there’s constantly great music on there, so bookmark it now if you haven’t already.
Louis Louis, great blogger, great promoter, great guy, and all round good egg gives us Vhyce’s lastest work, a bouncy remix of American Royalty with Vhyce’s signature sound stamped all over it. Mele also gets a mention with his free track I Swear Down, which is swarming all over the internet at the moment, as it should be.
This is one I’ve meant to post for a while, as I’ve literally had it on repeat since I heard it. It’s honestly one of my favourite tracks of the year, a hauntingly beautiful genre defying track, which, as can be vaguely guessed from listening to it, is produced by Burial. I’ve yet to decide which I prefer between the original and the Ramadanman Refix, but all I know is that they’re both amazing.
