London Fields Radio Rap Mix

Lately I have been listening to LFR (London Fields Radio); a tiny radio station based in a corner in the Wilton Way Cafe in Hackney. I'm really happy to have this as my local radio station!

Check out this old school rap mix, bringing back memories!

Woodkid Run Boy Run Video

And here's another video from Yoann Lemoine AKA Woodkid. Same as last time with the Iron, I like the track, but man the video is amazing!!! I think I might even go to his next gig in London on 14 May at the Roundhouse!

New Dead Can Dance Album

Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry got together to produce the first Dead Can Dance album; Anastasis. The name of the album means resurrection in Greek, a suitable title as it is their first album in 16 years!.. The 8-track album was launched yesterday and it is now available to order.

The sound of the album is no different really than what they used to do. But I guess that's a good thing, as it is that sound that Dead Can Dance fans would expect. There is a sense of melancholia and mysticism throughout with Middle Eastern and Gaelic influences. It brings listeners a feeling of nostalgia and at the same time prepares them for something bigger. And what beautiful artwork?! It's a piece of art!


Dead Can Dance have announced a tour in North America to present the album; I really do hope they come to Europe as well! I guess we'll have to wait and see!

The full album can be streamed here.

The radio edit version (not featured in the album) of Amnesia, can be downloaded here for free.

Par Grindvik - Sinister

This is what I call good techno!!! Here is a track from Berlin based, Par Grindvik. Originally from Sweden, Grindvik, also known as The Hollow, has been around for a good few years. Other than being a well respected DJ and producer, he also owns his own label, Stockholm LTD. I only discovered him recently, one of my mates sent me the track below and I was well impressed! Thanks for opening my eyes (or... ears!) J! :)


ps. not sure about the choice of images... but hey! noone is perfect!...
