Late Nite Tuff Guy – Bless The Rains (LNTG Epic Journey)

Last weekend I’ve visited the lovely Nachtdigital festival in the middle of nowhere (actually it’s in this small village called Olganitz in Saxonia). What a stunning weekend that was! Leipzig’s dj crew HW Rhapsody took over the small lakeside stage on Sunday, and amongst other great pop tunes they played Toto’s ‘Africa’. Then today I came across Late Nite Tuff Guy‘s most recent edit, and once again there’s Toto. You bet your ass this is a favorite of mine!

PillowTalk vs. El Michaels Affair feat. Navid Izadi – Can’t It Be Simple (Wake Me Up 3.0)

‘Boom boom boom boom’ is pretty nice, but I often enough dig other kind of moods musicwise. Here’s San Fran crooners PillowTalk back for good with a nice R&B boogie take on ‘Wake Me Up’ — much better than the one I already knew from Deniz Kurtel’s ‘The Way We Love’ album on W+L Black.

Current 93 – Killy Kill Killy (A Fire Sermon)

Current 93’s non-folk material is informing an awful lot of my life right now. I’m a demon.

Bei Maejor – Lights Down Low

As both a Scorpio born on Halloween and a physical male idea, I am classified as a hypersexual being. Through my sexual ego I ascend into a realm of afterdark delights and become the Spirit Molecule: DMT.

Harmony Molina – Scandinavian Adventure

If music is a personal thing, then Berlin via Chile Songwriter Harmony Molina is like an orgy with strangers – way to close and demanding for almost everyone. One could argue that the lo-fi concept is outdated by now, but who cares? This could be our generations – a bit saner – Daniel Johnston.

S ND Y P RL RS – Give

Sometimes it doesn’t take more than a guitar amp and some paddles to make soundscapes so dark and bleak that you can almost feel the blood in your veins running slower and life gradually leaving your body.

Evil Brown feat. Danny Brown – Black Brad Pitt

This is pretty sex-pesty, even by Danny Brown’s libidinous standards. However the way Evil Nine dismantle the beat half way through and reassemble its pieces into a frantic juke-inspired workout half way through is killer.

Piff Gang – Tanqueray & Piff (produced by Sumgii)

The London hip hop collective put down the bong long enough to get wavey all over this highlight from their recent smoked out mixtape Plantlife.

Frank Ocean – Lost

It’s these bold statements that shape Ocean’s work to perfection. Lost in the thrill of it all.

Mohamed Rouicha – Lile ya Lile


Take these twelve minutes of psychedelic berber jazz sedation. You’ll be surprised how irrelevant time feels in the Moroccan desert.
