Bye Johnny, You're My Favourite Customer
When this Maxxi & Zeus release on International Feel came out last year and copped lotsa love from big names I don't think I gave it enough of a listen. Or I must have been in some kind of fucked up alternate plane of reality because I was a bit dismissive of it. Thankfully I've come to my senses and rediscovered it recently and I'm loving it the way any sane person should. The A-side is so beautiful but it's the B that really extends my rod. Medleys are usually shit at best but this little collection of 70s disco gems with a bit of dirty talk spliced in is phenomenally groovy. It's fun and funky yet there's a bit of a dark and twisted attitude going on. Superbo.

Been holding this Onur Engin edit back for a while, he's quickly become one of the handful of editors you can always trust to put out a quality record. Love Me Love Me Now is a super nice serenading groove that works just as nice in the club as it does on the rooftop. The B is just as soothing and gentle, taking it down a few hundred bpm with some serious slow-burn action: scatter some rose petals on the bed, light a few scented candles and start video taping. The whole record aches of smooth. Too easy!

Can't stop listening to this Human Egg album and can't stop debating whether it's a creative and original work or a brilliant imitation of sounds coming out of the US and UK in the 70s. Just about every track sounds like there's a specific inspiration that's been drawn, whether it's Bowie, Hancock or whoever. Very interesting. Anyway when the tracks are good they're great! Love this one in particular - tell me who comes to mind when you listen to it.
