Playlist of the Week: Eagles & ButterfliesMay 18, 2022
I’ve put together some of my favourite jams from some of my favourite people. I’ve included some artists who I think are really pushing boundaries and creating something unique at the moment, something for all occasions.
It’s been an incredible few weeks touring in North America, and I had a chance to play a whole bunch of the these tracks. I have a whole bunch of new music on the way including “The Trip” and “Sketch 16” on May 27th, and I will also be releasing the first of two new EPs for the amazing Permanent Vacation in June.
Jamie xx – Lets Do It Again [Young]
Jamie is one of my favourite artists, I love everything he makes and this new one is incredible — super happy summer vibes. Love how he uses his vocals also, summer hit.
Sascha Funke – FEZ [Running Back]
Sascha is on my favourite label, Running Back. All four tracks are amazing, but I think “Fez” is my fav, super summer vibes.
Kelly Lee Owens – L.I.N.E. [Smalltown Supersound]
I love this album (Innersong) so much, I very rarely listen to an album on repeat from start to finish but this one was amazing. Kelly is an incredible artist, and “L.I.N.E.” is my favourite of the album — super dreamy, slow and euphoric.
Tourist – Bunny [Monday Records]
I played with him in San Diego this past weekend and loved his set, amazing vibes. I think this is one of my favourites from him, super dreamy. Killer groove and melodies.
Zombie in Miami & Lauer – Clamato [Creatures of the Night]
“Clamato” is by the killa combo of the Zombies and Lauer, both amazing on their own so this was always gonna be a hit. Summer piano bomb.
Perel & Marie Davison [Kompakt]
Jesus Was An Alien — killa combo from these two queens, dreamy synth pop at its finest. The whole album is great!
HAAI + John Hopkins [Mute]
Baby We’re Ascending — what a dream combo, HAAi is currently my favourite artist. I love everything she does, really pushing boundaries. Working with John was always going to be a hit! Pounding euphoria.
Bob Moses – Love Brand New [Bob Moses/ Domino Recording Company]
Maybe my favourite Bob Moses song. Played with the boys last weekend and this is such an amazing track to hear live, killa pop track.
Fred Again.., Romy, HAAi – Lights Out [Atlantic Records UK]
Another summer anthem from three of the best producers in electronic music! Love all three individually and this song shows hints of all of their artistic styles, the outcome is amazing.
Bonobo – Rosewood [Ninja Tune]
Who doesn’t love Si? Every album is amazing and this one was no exception. “Rosewood” is my favourite on the album. Great vocal sample, love the shuffle, groove, and whole vibe.
EFFY – Not Yours [Not Yours]
Absolute mayhem!! Love everything about this from the start to finish, proper hectic rave vibes in the best possible way!
Chloe Callet – Love Ain’t Over (Gerd Janson Remix) [Xcess Recs]
Two of my favs in one place, killa slice of Italo goodness perfect for any occasion !
Mano Le Tough – A If To Say [CircoLoco Records]
So many insane Mano jams to pick one is difficult, but this one on Circoloco is fire, sick groove and amazing production.
Yehno – Reminds Me (Jex Opolis remix) [Collection Disques Durs]
I absolutely love all Jex’s music, super synthy and ’80s/’90s sounding vibes with a perfect modern twist.
Eagles & Butterflies – Sketch 16 [Art Imitating Life]
I originally made this track about five years ago around the time of my last Innervisions EP and Radio 1 Essential Mix. It’s had a few changes along the way and finally gets a release!
Laurel – Hold Tight [Counter Records]
Love Laurel, incredible voice and her melodies are amazing, so many good tracks from her and this is one of the best.
Eagles & Butterflies – The Trip [Art Imitating Life]
One of my favorite tracks I have made, it’s been the biggest track of my sets for almost six months — happy for people to finally have it !
