Hey hey hey people, here we go again! Another round of trax that languish at the tippity top of my list this week.
As usual and I'm sure you're sick of reading it by now but TOUGH, if you like what you hear/see support the Artists you do make a huge difference. This week we're switching this up a gear ever so slightly. Click the pics for the Bandcamp licks!
In an effort to hopefully increase subs on Artists respective You Tube Channels if any new track is accompanied by a video I'll post that to! Be sure to sub to their channel to get all the latest releases!!
So who is the King or Queen of the clubs this week? Let's dive on in and find out!
KENSHIRO+ | FATE IS A SLEEPING SLAVE feat Carbon Killer
Budapest, Hungary continues to be the hotbed of Darksynth flavours and you wont hear me complain mainly because the music is too loud! Enter Kenshiro+ with a gripping EP infused in post rock and experimental touches and a damning narrative on a fragmented society. 'Fate is a sleeping Slave' feat Carbon Killer is a huge stand out. Great work!
AERONEXUS | FINAL FLIGHT
Let's face it, I could have reach into the Aeon Intergrade bag and pulled put pretty much any of the tracks and would have been happy with my choice for pick of the week but 'Final Flight' is just a complete aural experience from start to insane finish. If you're listening to this in your car and you feel your foot getting heavy I wouldn't worry it's one of the blissful hazards of listening to AERONEXUS! Enjoy...responsibly!
KAVINSKY | ZENITH
Listen for your aural pleasure, this ladies & gents is the spiritual descendent to 2010's 'NIghtcall'. A cinematic soundscape that pulsates, breathes you in and pulls up gently on the brakes and opens the testarossa car door for you to get out into that night air. The production value of this track is masterful but then why wouldn't it be when you have Gaspard Augé from JUSTICE coming to bat for you! Sublime!
TAURUS 1984 feat DANA JEAN PHOENIX | DREAMIN'
The welsh wonders return with a vocal heavyweight and supreme Synth queen Dana Jean Phoenix to gift us a track with astounding universal appeal. DJP's vocal in this is the best I've ever heard from her and she's had some solid gold numbers. Masterfully produced it's sunshine in a song and who doesn't like the sun? Stream it loud!
LYDE | RELIEF
Oh how I love a track with beats so dirty you need a shower after listening and this has it in veritable spades. It grabs that aural pickaxe and chips away until you succumb, to be fair I surrendered at the first drop. LYDE's new EP 'Resurgence' dropped on the 1st Feb and all 3 tracks are worthy of your playlists. If you're of a dark hive synth mind this will sooth the scorched earth of your soul!
JAKE THE KID | SENSATION
With equi amounts of sauce and passion this is a beautiful dreamwave track to vibe out to. Melodic and wonderfully produced it ebbs and flows like the tides on a neon beach and it's calming effect exudes. It's a treat to listen to and anyone who has even a passing interest in dreamwave titans like Timecop1983 & FutureCop! will love this, I'm willing to bet on it!
LUXURY ELITE | MAGNIFYING GLASS
Rejoice for I think I found the right late night lo-fi mood music that I'd been craving for so very long. The whole album 'Blue Eyeshadow' is a wonderful symphony of sounds that has become ultimately addictive. She digs deep here to give us an aural experience like no other, there's simply not enough superlatives so go listen for yourselves, you can thank me later!
BERNSCHNEIDER | ESCAPE FROM TOKYO
As atmospheric as you're likely to find this track is brimming with authenticity and ultimately very listenable. The track in of itself is the B Side of another coming out in March and is available for streaming right now via Spotify and Apple. It's great and deserved of some real estate on your playlists. Watch out for more from this Retro 80s photographer turned cool musician.

FM ATTACK & VANDAL MOON | Séance
In the irony of ironies whilst listening to this immaculate track I never felt more alive. The work done here by both Shawn Ward (FM Attack) & Blake Voss (Vandal Moon) is not to be underestimated. It's a tour de force of what can happen when heart and minds entwine. This particular track is dedicated to their late fathers and you could certainly feel the love exude. It's a track that the Sisters of Mercy wished they had released.
Some more tracks to be posted next week in the meantime support your favourite Artists and share their work. YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
