Andhim

I’m kinda bummed I missed Tobias & Simon aka Andhim when they were down here for WMC last week, but luckily it seems as though Treehouse has brought them down more than once so hopefully they’ll be back soon.

Skit & Tijani: Smooth Operators

So I’m on my way back home the other night when I decided to check what’s playing on the radio. Now, considering myself somewhat of a music elitist who in fact never actually listens to any local radio stations, I decide to tune in to one of the two radio programs via internet that I exclusively subscribe to; BBC Radio 1Xtra. My other station of course being Klangbox.fm [inserts 2 thumbs up!] Never having been let down before and surely enough as the station came through the speakers; my ears were instantly filled with immense joy. Now the culprits responsible for this suddenly unexplainable case of head bobbing and body grooving are nun other than the incredible talents of Skit & Tijani. The song title: “Sweat”. This new electronic R&B banger is being released on Plastician’s (Dubstep and Grime pioneer) label Terrorhythm Recordings (UK). … MORE

DI MARTINELLI : Borneland Remix

I’m not sure whether to make this post about Di Martinelli or about the Borneland brothers so we’ll just discuss the remix at hand. “You Could Be My Lover” feat. Sophie Galpin also remixed by the Bornelands is a distinct take on deep house. I also haven’t decided if this one would get a dance floor moving, but it will definitely get your head bobbing and shoulders shimmying. The vocals on this track are silky smooth, it’s lyrics are super catchy, and the synths are pleasantly simple. Have a listen … MORE
