This track is haunting me for days now. And “Bullet train” is getting better and better with every listen, I promise! GARDENS & VILLA (love that name) are from Santa Barbara/California and much in love with the warm breezes and surf of their California home. But for the production of their debut album “Dune” they locked away in a studio (incl. Sly Stone’s custom-built Flickinger recording console) with DFA’s magic producer Tim Goldsworthy (Cut Copy, LCD Soundsystem, Hercules & Love Affair, Rapture, David Holmes and cofounder of Mo’ Wax). This is intelligent, soulful modern electronic-analogue Popmusic for people with brain and heart. Love this! Album “Dune” will be out in february 2014 and I have a feeling, something really great is arriving….
here is a short trailer for the album:

Mixtape by Monsieur Disco BREAKBOT for Solé-Bicycles is a trip into style and Late 70s and Early 80s dirty, funky Discosound vs Blue Eyed Soul. Lots of unknown gems hidden in it! He also designed a bicycle for Solé, which you can win if you follow the link. There is also a free downloadlink for this mix waiting for you there.

This Mixtape just took me on a beautiful, sentimental journey to the year 2005 (well more like the year 1969 – 1975). MR. Flash’s mix of obscure, weird and incredibly beautiful french music from Psychedelic to Disco, mixed with a lot of spoken word stuff from erotic records, was the first release on ED BANGER records in 2005. Truly legendary. Now for the first time with a free download option. Take it. It influenced my Softrock-Disco mixes a lot.

Looks like it is “Slow Jam Thursday”. With their new single “fire” UK-boys BONDAX once again follow in the footsteps of black eighties bands like MTUME that moved between R&B, Disco and Soul, always on the sexy side! Silky Pop-R&B to make love to! but S.L.O.W.!
Good news. DENA’s debut album will come february. Here is a first taster for it, a lazy, melancholic, slow and mellow Rap-Pop track for people with “bad timing”. You know who you are….
