Peter Serafinowicz' Boards Of Canada inspired Solid Steel Radio Show

Just when I thought I couldn't like Peter 'voice dreamboat' Serafinowicz any more, turns out he is mad for Boards of Canada and made this mix for Ninja Tunes' Solid Steel Radio Show a couple of weeks ago with a load of chill beats on it. It even has some Gelg tunes that he made for his 'Look Around You' show on it. (Don't worry the mix isn't anything like that clip.) It gets pretty spacey and weird, which is amazing:

The Pharcyde are playing their Bizarre Ride album in full in The Sugar Club on Sunday 7th July - the album is 20 years old!

Helios : Shoreline Mix

Currently in post Body and Soul festival recovery mode right now so this chill dance set from Helios is helping bring me back to an acceptable level of being alive. Lots of soothing Poolside, Joakim, French Express artists and the odd space laser noise to cure what ails you. And by you I mean me.

Chilly Gonzales live with The Radio Symphony Orchestra

This must be the best gig all of those people have ever been to, forever. I saw him live last year with one piano in a venue with really crummy sound and it was one of the highlights of my life. If you ever get a chance to see him, DO IT.

I've posted a mix he's done before, check it out here. If you haven't seen the movie Chilly made with Tiga, you're missing out. We showed it at one of the Swooner movie nights, for more info, click here.

Dan Deacon live at Primavera Sound 2013

"Why didn't I learn Spanish? I took it for five fucking years in high school!"

Dan Deacon played Primavera Sound Festival recently and if you have ever seen him live before you will know how nuts it can be. He is such a charismatic bastard, with such mental, savage tunes. Saw him in Whelan's earlier this year and had the joy of watching it from upstairs so could fully appreciate his two unbelievably amazing drummers and the crowd games and dancing below and didn't have to get involved with all the madness on a physical level. It's a commitment to do so, and having done it twice before I was glad of the opportunity to watch from above like a fragile, hungover, non-omnipresent god, and the show was possibly even more enjoyable from the different perspective. But just listening to this, I am sure it was amazing being there. Too bad there's no video. G'wan the MOON!
If you can't see the above box, click here.

Quality stuff. LOVE that last track, it's so beautful. If you haven't been to one of his shows before and you get a chance, I would highly recommend it.

Disco Doubles feat. D'mia - Demons - Darshan Jesrani Spit-Roast MIX

Absolute CHOON. That is all.

P.S. From the youtube video: Disco Doubles is the brainchild of Gilberto Caleffi and Erio Simonini, two Italian producers, who fell in love with music during the golden age of disco in a club in Modena. Since the first true love never fades, they later formed a Disco band and named themselves "Disco Doubles". While the original of Demons feat. D'Mia on the mic, has already been released, Permanent Vacation now presents two rare versions from the other side of the ocean by Darshan Jesrani, co-founder of the legendary Metro Area.

So now you know. Out now on Permanent Vacation. Buy it here.

Metro Area play The Sugar Club on Friday June 14th, more info here.
