Pretty Lights – We Must Go On

Best thing I’ve heard so far in 2012.

A$AP Rocky – Wassup

Fela Kuti – Everything Scatter (Toby’s Indigo Edit)

I’ve been meaning to put this up since catching yet another brilliant set from Toby Kaar in the Pavillion over the festive period. The man’s an expert at getting people to throw ridiculous shapes on the dancefloor with his eclectic sound. This remix from Fela Kuti is one of the my favourite’s from Toby, it just gets funkier with every listen. His soundcloud page is open for business again so get downloading. Also check out this hilarious interview with Toby from December.

Fifty Grand – First Lucid Dream

‘First Lucid Dream’ is a demo from Boston-based Fifty Grand whose upcoming EP is due for release in February. A minimal blend of ambient electronics and varied instrumentation combine to make this a chilled out gem.

At the Drive-In reform

Best news of 2012 so far.

Michael Kiwanuka – Home Again

I first posted about Michael Kiwanuka back in April when I came across his magnificent song “Tell meĀ  a Tale”. Since then Kiwanuka has appeared on Jools Holland and topped the BBC’s Sound of 2012. I get the feeling that when those end of year lists are being drawn up next December his name will appear in most.
