Matthew Herbert – It’s Only (DJ Koze Remix)

With such invention as both producer and remixer you can imagine what unique beauty may be conjured up but this is miles better.  Easily my best discovery of 2013, a slightly-broken beat feel with warm sweeping synths, charming vocals and the odd bit of feedback.  Truly amazing.

The only downside is that I run out of superlatives sometimes.

Kasper Bjorke – Heaven (Nicolas Jaar Remix)

A very original beautiful track that really will send you into heaven, slow, very little reminder of dance music, lots of piano and some sweet vocals.  Best thing Nicolas Jaar has done in years.

Burial - Street Halo

Thanks to Chantelle for putting me onto this track.  I think it is called future garage, you can feel the garage similarity with the bassline, it has these dark but hopeful tones to it.

Very different to what I usually listen to and I would not have likely heard it were it not for the recommendation.

Rhadoo – Geemac

Ultra minimal.

Ittetsu – Gutterlove

This is amazing.  Fusic as tINI calls it.  Just a simple minimal house beat with a devastating but simple bassline.  And after the breakdown – wow.  Just wow.  Imagine getting a washing machine for the first time in your life.  This is what that feeling would be like.

Adriatique & Audino – All The Ladies

It’s a little cheesy and fluffy sounding but I like it, a nice slowish house groove about laser eyes or something banal but if everything I listed here was 17 minute long minimal tracks I wouldn't make it to the grand total of 10 viewers per post.

Blood Orange – Dinner

It really does annoy me that blood oranges are impossible to buy now.  This is excellent though, a Michael Jackson influenced slow house groove, introduced to me by the wonderful Wolf & Lamb.

Roman IV - La Paloma

This is how minimal used to sound at the height of the minimal days in the mid-2000's, just a simple hook, a killer drum beat and a hypnotic zombie dream.

Shall Ocin – Tribute To Summertime

This is a smooth sounding house track, perfect for the summer (which is why I am posting it in January for all my South American readers), quite floaty but yet a cracking bassline.

Note this is a recording from radio.
