Fat Freddy's Drop

I didn’t see Blackbird on many 2013 year end lists and that’s a shame, because this album by New Zealand’s Fat Freddy’s Drop reveals new bits of brilliance with every listen. I’m one of the fanatics that evangelizes for this band. “Mother, Mother” is a sublime bit of electro afro-beat with the dub reggae DNA […]

Everyone knows Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing”. It’s a classic that I’ve heard remixed a lot. This time 9 Lives does a really classy and great rework here that I think does the original justice while doing something new and fresh with it. Really good remix here!

London-based dancer and chanteuse, FKA Twigs, has consistently been putting out amazing videos and songs within the past year. Her latest, “Two Weeks,” a teaser for her upcoming album LP1, brings about an even higher production value with an effects-heavy video.

KING

The music KING creates is so deliberate, so delicate and so intricately crafted that just one song packs the concentrated satisfaction of a normal album’s worth of material. “Mister Chameleon” continues their perfect record.

Ernesto Djédjé was a huge star on the Ivory Coast in his day and listening to “Ziboté,” it makes perfect sense. Catchy vocals, great instrumentation, groovy rhythms, and—although rare for West African records from the 70s—the recording is crystal clear and expertly mixed. One look at the cover and you know it’s gonna be funky.

The elusive Detroit champion Moodymann has been churning out deep, sample-based soul music for late-night dance floors for 20 some years. This self titled LP, in my opinion, is his greatest achievement.

C2C is the best example of what happens when champion DJ nerds grow up.
