Mike’s Monday #Playlist – 06.01.14
It’s 2014, and to welcome you in, Mike has a fantastic, percussive offering from musical poet Saul Williams. It’s like walking into a crowded room to a drum roll and a wave of hand claps.
Young buck (and singer/songwriter) Joel Compass slips in slightly further down with the title track of his first EP ‘Astronaut’. If you like this one, you should also check out the Gorgon City remix.
We move swiftly on to July Child’s ‘Liquid Form’ – a wistful, poetic, mid-tempo electronic pop love song. This is a debut track from the Kiks and Amber Clara duo, but the pair’s independent experience certainly shines through.
Bringing the garagey, break beats vibe back to the fore, we’ve got Brighton based duo Anushka, formed of producer Max Wheeler and the vocal talents of Victoria Port.
