Reviving an occasional series on ten minutes hate, here are the Top 5 Records currently bringing joy to my ears:
1. Javeon McCarthy – Lost Time (T Williams Remix)
It is rainy season here in Japan, so there are days when we can’t see much of anything through the rain. Still, these haunting lyrics of lost love, set against a beat you will find difficult to ignore the invitation to dance to, will make even the greyest of skies seem suddenly brighter.
2. Fact mix 327 – Disclosure
The series of mixes released by Fact magazine are always worth more than one listen and this from Disclosure doesn’t buck the trend. By three minutes in I already knew it wa the best mix I had heard all year and then it proceeded to get even better. Don’t miss out!
3. Cajmere & Russoul – Let’s Dance
Watch the video, practise the moves, hit the club, be the toast of the town. Thank me later.
4. XLR8R podcast – Braiden
Another quality series of mixes, another great DJ. What’s not to like?
5. Flight Facilities – Foreign Language ft Jess (Will Saul & Tam Cooper remix)
More great lyrics, an amazing vocal and deft remix by Simple Records founder, Will Saul. Almost too perfect…
Hopefully that has you in the perfect mood for whatever shenanigans the weekend holds for you. As ever, let me know your top 5s in the comments, below and be sure to have a cracking one!
