Music Monday: April Week 2

It’s time for another run-down of our weekly music choices as we roll deeper into April. This week we feature from the likes of Björk, HTRK, R Kelly, Biffy Clyro and Womack and Womack.

“I got introduced to ESPRIT this week by a friend and was in to it right away. SUMMER NIGHT makes use of a brilliant rhodes sample and has a groove and beat that wouldn’t feel out of place on an old DJ Shadow album.” – Chris

02. HTRK – Chinatown Style
“HTRK’s latest album 9-5 Club sees the duo carry on from Work (work, work) in a similar fashion. Chinatown Style is a stand out track for me.” – Chris

03. R Kelly – My Story
“From R Kelly’s 2013 Album Black Panties this track is just one of a good few highlights. Black Panties Is about as smooth as R Kelly gets with albums but this one is a more upbeat number featuring 2 Chainz.” – Luke

04. Womack and Womack – MPB (Frankie Knuckles Balllroom mix)
“I’ve actually been listening to original of this a lot recently as its a perfect sunshine track. This Frankie Knuckles edit however is stellar and needs way more rotation. RIP Frankie.” – Luke

05. Rhythm and Gash – Inkke Bootleg
“The original of this is arguably the most classic of all grime tunes and has been remixed and refixed left, right and centre. This more recent offering from producer of the current grime crop, Inkke is up there with the best of them. Banger.” – Luke

06. Bun B – The Best Is Back
“He used Sean Kingston on a hook once and made him sound incredible. Since then I’ve had a new found respect for the Trill one.” – Grizzle

07. Big Boi – Shutterbug
“Shutterbug has everything, beat, lyrics, flow and with Outkast’s anniversary it’s a fitting tune to be listening to right now.” – Grizzle

08. Biffy Clyro – Wave Upon Wave Upon Wave
“Still sessioning Biffy lately. Here’s a belter for you.” – Alex

09. Björk – Unravel
“Always been a big Björk fan. Could pick endless tracks of hers to put in this playlist, but I’ve gone with one of her more cinematic options in Unravel.” – Alex
