SHREM'S FUTURE ANTHEMS: "APART" - Kasper Bjørke feat. Sísý Ey


Mixmag just said that "Apart", Kasper Bjørke's 4th single from his forthcoming album "After Forever" is "nothing short of genius". Indeed "Apart" is an immaculate synth-pop number featuring the Icelandic band Sísý Ey which I have been somewhat obsessed with for quite a while at this stage. The undeniably perfect melody, the raw, retro synths, the flawless vocal harmonies. I think I might have found a pretty late contender for the song of the year. An avalanche of goosebumps.

LA MURPHY SAGA CONTINUES: "MI SENTI REMIXED 2" [EP] - Róisín Murphy


Róisín Murphy's exquisite Italian language EP gets a second portion of remixes. Cosmic disco legends Daniele Baldelli and Marco Dionigi and Optimo's JD Twitch submitted their fascinating versions of "Ancora Tu" and "In Sintesi". Order your 12" copy directly from The Vinyl Factory HERE. Based on La Murphy's updates on both her Facebook as well as her Instagram it seems like some of us may be spoiled with her brand new dj gigs sooner than later.

SHREM'S LATE MONDAY NIGHT SESSIONS: "ON MY MIND" - Dornik


One of PMR Records' shiniest new talents - Dornik, returns with his 3rd single "On My Mind". Retro flavoured R&B smoothness, similarly captivating as his 2 first efforts "Something About You" and "Rebound". Electronic soul at its most refined. Looking forward to learning more about Dornik's first album hopefully in not so distant future. 3 out 3 so far, very impressive!

SHREM'S BIGGIES BUT GOODIES BASKET: "RIGHT NOW" - Mary J Blige [Produced by Disclosure]


When Disclosure invited Mary J Blige to sing on their re-released version of "F For You" I went ecstatic as not only the track surpassed the original version in its brilliance but also became one of the biggest diva house anthems of the past few years. Now it's time for the London boys to return a favour and produce a track for the Hip-Hop Soul Queen's forthcoming record "The London Sessions". Blige has just shared "Right Now" on her Facebook page and it is a beauty!

CHOON OF THE DAY: "minipops 67 [120.2][source field mix]" - Aphex Twin


Brand new Aphex Twin. That is all. Warp Records release "Syro" on 19th September. Aphex Twin's first full album in 13 years! Pure electronic excellence.
