Regrowth Remixed

Last year in October we saw the release of Kauf’s debut LP, Regrowth. Since then, there has been a steady stream of remixes culminating in the Regrowth Remixed album. More remixes have just been added a couple of days ago including this fantastically smooth one from Jeffrey Brodsky.

Throwback Thursday: Henry Mancini

Not sure why, but I’m loving this main title theme from Charade composed by Enrico Nicola “Henry” Mancini. Mancini was an American composer, conductor and arranger, who is best remembered for his film and television scores. Often cited as one of the greatest composers in the history of film, he won four Academy Awards, a Golden Globe, and twenty Grammy Awards, plus a posthumous Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1995. Not bad, not bad.

A Blast From The Past: Motor City Drum Ensemble

DaniloPlessow

The German producer, Danilo Plessow has been bringing Soul to the House scene for the last decade, and I thought it might be nice to revisit his sound this weekend. His moniker, “Motor City Drum Ensemble,” is a reference to both Stuttgart, Germany where he is based, and of course Detroit. Stuttgart is like the ‘German Motor City’ with the production of Mercedes, Porsche, and the Bosch headquarters.

Check out a few of my favorite MCDE tracks below:

Throwback Thursday: Onuma Singsiri

We’re taking it back. Back to Thailand circa the mid 1960s when the country was pumping out some pretty interesting music. This joint is from Onuma Singsiri. It might sound familiar if you’ve heard it reworked and sampled on Action Bronson’s track, “The Chairman’s Intent.”

“Hours Spent Loving You is a summation of how relationships are viewed both earthly and heavenly. This project was created for the people who have deeply supported SPZRKT & Sango.”

Matty

Matty Tavares has taken a break from being the keyboardist from the experimental jazz group BadBadNotGood in order to start a solo project under the name “Matty.” He’s also demonstrating how jazz isn’t his only interest when it comes to producing music. The Matty project finds Tavares creating music with a chilled out psychedelic vibe.

Check out my two favorite singles from his self-produced debut album, Déjàvu below.

Mildlife – The Magnificent Moon

mildlife

Just came across this Australian band called Mildlife and thought I would share. I fell in love with the lead single off of their debut album Phase. It’s called “The Magnificent Moon” and it’s a great introduction to the band’s mixture of jazzy disco-psych sound. The track starts off with an almost ‘Stranger Things’ sounding overture… an ominous brooding which slowly builds. At around the one-minute mark, the psychedelic disco journey begins and “The Magnificent Moon” takes off into its irresistible groove.

When describing the track, Bassist Tom Shanahan explains that “The Magnificent Moon feels like the veteran journeyman to the rest of the album. I’m not sure if that’s because it was written first or because it seems to know what it wants and has a more considered direction. It never really second guesses itself except for maybe just before the outro when he realises he may have journeyed too far and his space suit has a hole in it. But then he just jams some gum in the hole and gets on with it anyway.”

At the beginning of this year, Mildlife released a three-track remix EP where they partnered up with a few producers to rework a couple of the singles. It’s called Mildlife Remixed and you should also check that out on Soundcloud and Bandcamp if you have the chance.
