The best way to describe this Lido and Canblaster collaboration for Pelican Fly would be to draw someone a picture with two Sharpie highlighters (let's say yellow and pink) of a big happy smiling face. It just sounds like a joy.
The Hospital camp, including their young disciples at Med-School, have one of the most easily identifiable vibes in the game. This sound is always classy, elegant and admirably authentic and entirely non-conformist to the ebbs and flows of fashion, making them one of the most respected imprints. Keeno has already proved himself worthy of his place in the ranks, with this EP cementing him firmly. Soft and somehow upliftingly melancholy, with a profound sense of musicality. Beautiful.
Ten Years since its original release and Animal Collective’s seminal ‘Prospect Hummer’ EP (featuring the ever-beautiful Vashti Bunyan) gets a special exclusive re-issue in honour of the brilliant Record Store Day. Listening back, it's barely aged a day either, and sounds as fresh and intriguing as the day it was conceived. The collectors amongst you will be glad to hear it gets its first outing on vinyl too.
Yet another record from Prydz that predictably blows the roof off with more precision-honed euphoria than you’ll possibly even be able to handle. ‘Generate’ kicks off on a breakdown that’s prepped for generating goosebumps, before kicking into the main thrust of its drive. It’d be trance if it weren’t so groove-driven. It’s a more commercial affair than what we typically get under his Pryda alias; but if only all radio-friendly club tracks were as good as ‘Generate’.
