Music Monday: July Week 1


Another week has passed and another Music Monday is upon us. This week we feature sounds from Space Dimension Controller to Wilson Pickett to DMX.

Big Sixes – The Hunter

“Big Sixes are a band from my local area. Great to see the young guns of the area coming up and producing music of this quality. I’m a fan.” – Grizzle

DMX – Bring Your Whole Crew

“It’s all about the corpse lyric. DMX at his best” – Grizzle

Wilson Pickett – Hey Joe

“I always thought this song was written by Hendrix but it turns out it was a rock standard written in the ’50s and there’s actually quite a few versions. This take on the classic by Wilson Picket just has to be one of the most unique, I was lucky enough to pick up the 45 in a flea market in Barcelona last week.” – Luke

M.I.A. – Bring The Noise

“M.I.A. returns with her typical steez and it’s strong as always. Production sees Switch and Surkin on the buttons. The video is pretty serious too, check it.” – Luke

Cosmo and Dennis – Tonight and Ever More

“I have a thing for old music that blurs the lines between genres. In this track by Cosmo & Dennis the crossover of early rhythm & blues and early ska was probably completely unintentional as early ska was pretty much Jamaicans trying to replicate American R&B. This sound is just so classic.” – Luke

Florian Kupfer – Feelin

“This tune is just one of those ones that gets stuck in your head. I like how the vocal is almost haunting. The track develops really nicely as well.” – Alex

Nils Frahm – Familiar

“Nils Frahm is one of my favourite artists. He is also essentially the soundtrack to any travelling I do and Felt, the album that this song is taken from, got a lot of listening time on my trip to Paris for the Nike Sneaker Ball last week. Unfortunately this is only a clip, but I’d strongly recommend buying at least one of his albums.” – Alex

Space Dimension Controller – 2257AD

“I’ve been listening to a lot of Space Dimension Controller again lately. I love his ’80s sci-fi sound – I just get lost in it. His latest album Welcome To Mikrosector 50 is an essential listen as well.” – Alex
