Chart – Frankie’s Picks
Jamie xx re-work ft. The xx — You Got The Love
This song is no newcomer to remixes and covers, but The xx manage to add something new to it with their version. Not a new re-work of the track, but a great way to get excited for The xx’s upcoming third album.
Motor City Drum Ensemble — L.O.V.E. (Studio !K7)
Motor City Drum Ensemble (Danilo Plessow) promises to bring back ‘some soul to house & techno music’ and this track is a great example of that.
Andhim — Hausch (Get Physical Music)
As well as producing great songs, the duo from Cologne manage to simultaneously keep up their hilarious Facebook presence. Hausch is a great house song to put on in the background and relax to.
Mount Kimbie — Carbonated (Hotflush Recordings)
Released in 2010, Carbonated is probably the most well-known song from this British duo. A great mellow track with an instantly recognisable beat.
Floating Points — Myrtle Avenue (Eglo Records)
Released on the ‘Shadows’ EP, Myrtle Avenue is a personal favourite. Floating Points (Sam Shepherd) is not only a producer of great music, but also a neuroscientist. Myrtle Avenue is almost ten minutes long, but never gets boring.
