NAUTIC - FREEDOM OF THE FLOOR (OPEN SPACE REMIX)

The first release on the new ‘Test Pressing’ label (formed from the great blog of the same name) is a balearic bomb…..

BICEP - LYK LYK

Some people seem to not like Bicep but I don’t know why. ‘Vision of Love’ was great, ‘Satisfy’ was great, and this doesn’t buck the trend. A proper retro-infused house jam. Coming soon on wax….

LEXX - TURNING TIDES

Bridges the gap between day & night with aplomb… 

AMADOU & MARIAM - CE N’EST PAST BON (JD TWITCH EDIT)

Magical edit by JD Twitch from Optimo. This is just out as a very limited 10” on Autonomous Africa…. must buy!

CLAP! CLAP! - ASHIKO

This is brilliant. For those who think Major Lazer should toughen up…

Amazing artwork on the album as well.

APHEX TWIN - MINIPOPS 67 [120.2] [SOURCE FIELD MIX]

You’ll have heard it already, but this more sublime with repeated listens. Come (back) to Daddy.

ROCHA - FEEL THE LOVE (GREG WILSON REMIX)

Tomorrow sees the launch of my new art site, Gatefold Editions (www.gatefoldeditions.com), I’m going to be selling art prints based on the sleeve artwork of some of my favourite labels. First up is a series of beautiful prints from Mark Barrott’s ‘Sketches From An Island’ album on International Feel…    to celebrate here’s an old track of Mark’s that came with a cracking Greg Wilson remix…..

SKREAM - LET IT GO

Skream goes down a Daphni / Four Tet route… very nice!

JACK J - SOMETHING (ON MY MIND)

Just got this home … beautiful deep house business (the proper kind)!
