Francesco Tristano live at Sun Burn Party Porto Sant'Elpidio August 2013

Francesco Tristano, musical genius. Always wish there was video with these live sets. This is 2 hours of whopper, live, sometimes minimal, sometimes experimental, sometimes banging, mostly piano-based beats. Gorgeous. Particularly around the midway mark when The Melody comes in.

I've posted about Tristano before, here is a quality set that he did at Robot Festival and here is a bunch of stuff from the band Aufgang, of which he is a member. Swoon.

Kool & Kabul - In Between Seasons mix

Late in getting around to listening to this one, but I'm glad I finally did! Quality house tunes and some pretty feel good vibes throughout. Thanks to my friend Martina* who got me onto these guys. Quality.

Cosmic Kids: Step mix by Cosmic Dan and Roller Radio

Any mix that starts with a bit of Phil Collins is alright with me. And I'm not ashamed to admit it. This is a quality, all funkin' all vinyl mix from Roller Radio and Dan from Cosmic Kids for their disco night 'Step' in San Diego. Some quality tracks and edits in there. Love the track around the 122 min mark.
If you can't see the above box, click here.

I've posted a bunch of Cosmic Kids mixes before, although they are always getting removed from Soundcloud. This one has a free DL though so get it while it's hot. Check out these ones that are still up though, their Live at Fabric mix and their Throne Of Blood podcast. Both quality.

Swooner Movie Nights: Dave Chapelle's Block Party

Last month, at the third Swooner movie night, in association with Portobello Picturehouse, we screened Dave Chapelle's Block Party. Back in 2006 Chapelle organised a massive, free, hip-hop party in Brooklyn and got everyone ever to perform at it - Kanye, Mos Def, The Roots, Erykah, Dead Prez, Common and a load of others too. Directed by Michel Gondry and put together really well, it not only has amazing musical performances but also hilarious segments with Chapelle telling jokes and just generally being amazing. If you haven't seen it I'd highly recommend it, and lucky for you it is being screened in the Lighthouse Cinema as part of their music documentary series on Saturday 5th October. You can get tickets here.

It is also all on Youtube you can check it out below if you don't like going outside or other humans.

Vacationland mix #17: Bodega Fantasy

Another deadly mix from Vacationland. These mixes are always different and interesting, but still really fun to listen to, which is an important distinction. Soundbites and pretty varied tunes throughout. This one is pretty chilled, nu disco-ey, with dreamy vibes, perfect for a Sunday afternoon. Always dig their artwork too.
