Best of the Week: 12 July, 2014
Hello and welcome to our very first post dedicated to the Best of the Week – an attempt to make a nice weekly round-up (albeit definitely not exhaustive) of some of the more exciting musical happenings in the past days.
Consume while recovering from your Friday evening and preparing for whatever plans you’ve made for Saturday!
Let’s start our first rendition of Best of the Week with something more unusual. This week Facebook feeds were a-buzzin’ with Carlos Serrano’s mash-up of Disclosure and Sam Smith’s “Latch” and Lana Del Rey’s “Pretty When You Cry”. Titled “Pretty When You Latch” the track puts Smith’s emotional vocals over Lana’s haunting instrumental and the result is surprisingly good!
Pssst, there’s a free download involved.
Enough with the unusual – let’s go back to our house roots. Kry Wolf premiered a new track called “Citrus” on EtonMessy’s YouTube channel and the sound is classy summer house.
Check it out bellow!
We have on free download already but let’s get serious and add some more.
The second free download we highly recommend is Pixelord’s “The Answer”, courtesy of Do Androids Dance. Once again this very sentence that you’re reading holds the key to the link you need to get to it.
Now let’s move on to a couple of video premiers.
Jessie Ware is back with a bang and a super stylish video for her track “Tough Love”. Watch it below!
Remember that very weird yet fascinating video for Flying Lotus’s “Phantasm”? The same guy who did it – Markus Hofko – has just made a video for Magical Mistakes’s “Hollow Bodies”. You can listen to a full stream of Magical Mistakes’ new EP [Decompose / Reassemble] by clicking on this sentence and the video you can watch below.
Now speaking of EPs….
The legend that is David Morales has a new one out and it’s an EPIC EP with remixes of Michael Jackson’s “Love Never Felt So Good”. It features 4 tracks including one that is a tribute to Frankie Knuckles, who we all lost way too early this year.
And since we’re listening to the Jackson family kinda….
Not a week goes by without another Janet Jackson remix but I don’t think anyone minds really. She’s awesome and her tracks are highly remixable. Sure, some remixes are better than others but that’s why we seed them out for you.
This next one if for Janet’s track “Can’t B Good”, it was made by Allure and we got the tip from HYPETRAK.
P.S. She sounds exactly like her brother on this track!
Finishing off with some podcasts, radio shows and sets.
We wouldn’t be mofidelity.co if we didn’t recommend our very first podcast which you can listen to HERE.
As HUGE fans of Jackmaster’s selections of tunes (and his glorious Glaswegian accent) we just cannot not recommend his Bigger Than J.E.S.u.S. radio show (or rreh-dioh shoo) on Ibiza Sonica.
And keeping it in the spirit of summer – Hot Since 82 has shared an almost 3-hour long summer HOTcast that you should listen to and download immediately!
Aaand that’s it for this week!
