Her. Next big thing. Take Five minutes to listen to this.
Vitalic is back in super shape.
This track featuring David Shaw from DBFC fame.
Till next time. xx
Well, usually I try not to post any super brand new track. But this one is just out of competition. Bonobo and Nick Murphy (featured here before) for seven minutes of sonic bliss. Out of Bonobo’s new album “Migrations”.
The open door to a whole new world. It includes Bedouins, camels and caravans floating in space, heading toward a distant planet from which you can see Jean-Michel Jarre-like lasers and robots and weirdly dressed humans partying like hell.
Because a relationship is made of two people.
Nick Murphy f.k.a. Chet Faker.
From Israel, the great Kutiman. From his new album “6am”.
“One track to rule them all” is easy: it is me sharing one track with you. Rule being: I love this track. Today, Joe Goddard, of Hot Chip fame, with a beautiful music video. The track comes out on Greco-Roman, a wonderful label you should check out, they’ve got a superb catalogue with the likes of Roosevelt, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Baio, or this little duo called Disclosure at their very beginning.
That’s it. Till next time, enjoy.
Eyh, Shalom to you !
Following my latest post, here is a mix from Fortuna Records out of Tel-Aviv, Israel. This one has been comissioned by the great vinylfactory website, so let’s not spoil them. Head over here for more info and tracklist about the mix.
What I like in this mix is the fact that although I don’t understand a word of hebrew, I enjoy the music. Actually it is not only about the language, it is also about the era, the culture, the traditions, the history in which this music was produced, and that I don’t know at all. I mean, besides a a few Jewish friends, a holiday trip to Israel a couple years ago and some history classes from college, well, I am rather a complete stranger to all of this. But I absolutely loved the mix.
To put it simply, what you are about to listen is an hour of israeli tunes mainly produced in the 60’s and 70’s. And you are going to love it. Highlights for me include the Aris San track (a Fortuna release), ‘Shine Again’ from Kutiman (the man behind the Thru-You videos) and the closing track from Arik Einstein, a stunning production.
Until next time,

Please meet Mehmet Aslan, as turkish DJ based in Basel, Switzerland, who realizes the perfect fusion of folk and traditional songs with electronic ryhtm. I’m a lot into this ‘East meets West in a club’ thing at the moment; different sonorities finally get to mix with each other and produce new atmospheres never heard before.
Here is a list of labels/DJs/producers you want to check out:
Baris K and his band Insanlar from Istanbul, the duo Red Axes from Tel-Aviv, Khidja from Bucarest, Moscoman from Disco Halal, all the crew from Cairo with Bosaina and Hussein Sherbini representing “KIK” – Kairo Is Koming (read this great RA article here), the guys from Fortuna Records also from Israel and Jannis of Habibi Funk, those last two specializing in reissues from respectively the middle East (notably Israel and Turkey) and Northern Africa (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia). And of course, hailing from Paris, the duo that started it all for me, Acid Arab who is getting bigger and bigger around Europe.
All these people contribute to the development of ‘arabic’ music in Europe and are also attracting european producers in their home countries. Numerous festivals have been created notably in Morocco (Nuits Sonores Tanger, Oasis) and Tunisia (Les Dunes Electroniques) while underground institutions like Boiler Room and the Red Bull Music Academy have put on shows in Turkey and Israel, showcasing the local talents.
I hope you will like this mix and dig deep into these sounds !
Until next time,
