A couple of weeks ago, I posted about Swindle's excellent remix of Zara McFarlane's beautiful 'Open Heart' and now it seems the Swedes of Little Dragon have discovered the production-wiz' remix-skills as well... Enjoy!

Melodiesinfonie-beat and not instantly lovin' it, it was quite predictable I would love his debut album 'Friede Freude'. And because I know you will too, I urge you to head over to Boyoom Connective's bandcamp and cop this fine example of Swiss mastery... Enjoy!

Last week, British producer Spacedtime surprised us with his greatest release so far. Head over to his bandcamp to download the jazzy dopeness of his brand new 'Manifest EP', enjoy!
Joe Meek was probably the strangest and certainly the most talented studio-engineer, songwriter and producer to have roamed the British pre-Beatles music scene. The BBC Four-documentary
'The Strange Story of Joe Meek' focuses on his tragic life and the radio-friendly stuff he made rather than his more interestig experimental or psychedelic recordings, but is a must-watch nonetheless... Enjoy!
