Wake Up by Loud Forest 

The first song of Loud Forest i have come across and they impress at first listen! This is what they wrote about the tune and i couldn’t agree more

“This song is about loving someone who is super independent. You love them, you have all the feelings of intense love, but they are always out there, at arms length, just beyond your reach…so it feels like a dream…so I say to myself “you’re imagining this, it’s a dream you’ll forget, wake up it’s over”. Because it feels like a love affair with all the emotions and feelings, but one that is ever so slightly unreal because that independent person is never totally there within reach. It’s kind of like “pinch me, is this real?” But not because it’s too good to be true, but because it’s a love, a distant love that does kind of feel like it’s not real.”

My Body by Saunas

Man, i wanna jump in my Trans Am, and go to my prom dance, start a brawl, then have a ball and then hang out with my fellow 80’s reagenauts, Brad & Chad. This has 80’s retro feel and soundtrack written all over it! Solid effort gents! This one is a slow burner though. At first you like it, but then you really like it ;)

This way to the sauna please:::

Erica by Zalon 

Sweet Soul Music.

This is what they had to say about their single:

Zalon, the main backing artist and collaborator with Amy Winehouse just has released his Album and first single ‘Erica’ – to a sold out gig in London. Erica is about a woman who is untrustworthy whose giving Zalon the run around but she should just be true and honest with herself.

[Masta Ace & MF Doom are] MA Doom “Son of Yvonne” Album

When these two greats team up you better listen up. Masta Ace sounds so retro on here, almost like on his first album on cold chillin, except he is more mellowed out, more lean back, grown up and Mf Doom provides the right soundtrack for Ace to take a walk down memory lane. Enjoy this proper Hip Hop Album, with that touch of New York City nostalgia and realness or honesty, thats so often lacking. No glittery crap here, soulful beats meet a man who looks so old school these days when riding the boom bap buffalo and seems to shine more the older he gets. Get MA Doom “Son of Yvonne” right here.

ps Masta Ace was one of my absolute favourite Mcs every since he first appeared on the scene on Marley Marls “In Control Vol 2” which featured the Original Juice Crew, who were the blueprint for the Wu-Tang Clan only a few years later. His first solo album “Take a look around” was heard at every Acid Jazz Party and he was THE Mc in a mostly british & japanese dominated jazz scene that went on to shape a decade. In 1993 his album Slaughterhouse was the moral highground in Hip Hop and a voice of reason, sarcasm and intelligence in a scene that got its first wave of  clownish “Bitch and Gangsta” behaviour, he called it back then – if its fake its fake. A true head and a pioneer. I salute you Duvall Clear

Lana Del Rey – Video Games

This songs like everywhere – Rightfully. It has been spreading via blogland like a virus for the past 6 weeks or even longer, i guess since the end of last summer but i took notice quite late. Definitely a sweet serenade track! Also love the Jamie Woon Mix. And honestly the Bombay Bicycle club Version is in my humble opinion the best one of the three – gonna post that one seperately, since it deserves its own post. Instead of posting all the remixes, edit & covers that are circulating here are the ones i see best fit for our website and musical interest. remember the old quantity vs quality debate? Enjoy
