TRACK OF THE WEEK: KAYTRANADA – Bus Ride

SOUNDS LIKE – Anderson Paak, Stwo, Hiatus Kaiyote KAYTRANADA is back. Whether you’ve never heard of this hip-hop / R&B / house / soul fusing titan before or you’ve seen him set Boiler Room sessions alight, this guy can do it all. Just finding three artists who he sounds like was a genuine struggle for me, as he regularly produces tracks that span all of these genres and yet somehow retains an individual style that is easily identifiable throughout. ‘Bus Ride’ is taken from the Canadian’s new album 99. %, an exciting collection of 15 tracks that are n exciting insight into what this über-talented producer can do.

The milk (aka. its style) – ‘Heatwave’ combines pop vocal hooks and that relaxed summer house vibe that makes it something bo...

TRACK OF THE WEEK: Papa G and The Starcats – Manipulation (Live)

‘Manipulation’ is the opening track from The Starcats’ new live album, and with faced paced bass & guitar lines and an equally juicy horn section (saxophones aplenty = me likey) behind Amber Ferarro’s commanding vocals, this group has the layers of sound and soul needed to fill you up with nutritious musical goodness.

TRACK OF THE WEEK: GUM – ANESTHETIZED LESSON

There aren’t many bands whose individual side projects make me froth at the mouth, but when the all-conquering Tame Impala’s drummer Jay Watson decided to channel his inner swagger into a solo alias ‘GUM’ and create beautiful funky fuzziness, I was hooked.

TRACK OF THE WEEK: Tom Misch – Your Love (feat. Alexa Harley)

After a brief hiatus and a well publicised stint in rehab, Track of The Week is sober and clean and back for the Melbourne summer with a cracking release from up and coming British producer Tom Misch.
