THAT FUZZY FEELING: RAMPI FEAT MISS BEE – FEEL IT BURN

This week’s tune of the week is a really fine slice of SloMoDisco on the excellent Under The Shade record label. My favourite version is the Ray Mang remix. This one will definitely get a lot of plays in my bar and mellow club sets. You can watch the video for the tune on the


Under The Shade website.

ROBAG WRUHME – THORA VUKK

Robag Wruhme, one time member of Wighnomy Brothers doesn’t just specialise in unpronounceable names. He also makes very fine, delicate, experimental electronic dance and atmospheric music. This album, on DJ Koze’s Pampa label, is a great set featuring long minimal club tracks mixed with short ambient interludes, describe by Resident Advisor as ‘something patient and quietly tender’.

FLEET FOXES – HELPLESSNESS BLUES

The Fleet Foxes album has finally arrived. And it’s superb. Folky and spacy and a little old fashioned but really beautiful and perfect as a hazy summer soundtrack.

HED KANDI COMPETITION

Competition – we have 2x CD copies of the Hed Kandi compilation Serve Chilled – Electronic Summer to give away.
Q: The Compilation features Hercules & Love Affair’s cover of It’s Alright. Pet Shop Boys covered this song to, but who made the original version in the heyday of house music in the late 80s?
