A hypnotic journey, this EP aptly titled ‘Closer’ by Chopstick & Johnjon, transcends your mind closer to the stars while keeping your feet tapping trancily on the earth (for the lack of a more apt word) to its very very organically groovy vibe All thumbs and big toes up for this! We can’t seem to get enough It has been produced by Berlin based label Suol, who have an impressive repertoire.
With New York city’s Ryan Cavanagh aka Slow Hands providing the vocals, the track ‘Catamount’ is a great example of how these two seemingly effortlessly manage to incorporate classy song-writing into a club track
Chopstick & Johnjon always like to show another side of their sound with the last track on their EPs. And this time it is a little gem called ‘Track Of Time’ featuring Larissa Kapp, whose lush vocals on sit beautifully on what is almost a ballad – a ballad with a huge 80s that is.
As just the above mentioned tracks are available for soundcloud streaming, those are the ones that we are posting here, so enjoy and buy the EP for more elation
London/Edinburgh(Berlin) based Sequel’s latest EP Reykjavik incorporates stunning congregation of post-industrial synth sound loops with a wicked beat ranging between techno and dance pop. Amongst the various tosses and turns there are delightful interludes of psychedelic elements which take this already awesome production several notches above most other stuff in the electronic music genre. The EP, which must definitely find a place in most great playlists, is out on iTunes and here are a few sample sounds to envelope you with Sequel’s world of electronic darkness:
Symphony of Creation!
Another awesome track from 4 Cities (featured last week), made it’s way to my inbox today. A perfect blend of rock and electronic sounds with great vocals on this one. The style reminds you somewhat of sound of the era when The Matrix came out. Only the sound is much more evolved and the vibe is very now! I have been shaking my head vigorously ever since the song has been playing on repeat on my music player and shall continue to do so until I finish the last remnants from the tube Voltaren. Without further ado:

Sometimes its all about minimalism; like the absolutely fresh track Motion by Chandomusic posted below. Soothingly downtempo for this time of the night, just sit back and relax:
Perfect End to an imperfect day! Well not so much imperfect, but lets say ‘less than ideal’! I woke up mildly hungover and realised that my house looks like a wreck,second only to countries destroyed by superpowers looking for WMDs. So as a good citizen I got down to action and after 7 hours of ordeal, I can finally sit back and relax. But then, when you discover such gems like Lilu’s Song by Zefora, you know it has been a good day. All is well that ends well! But when the beginning, intermediate and final sections of an Odyssey make every pore on your skin relax and induce a happy dreamy state without any Mary Jane on offer, you know you have uncovered Stupendosity.
