All hail Steed Lord, they’ve done it again.
While the internet is a great place for finding music, nothing beats experiencing it live in the club with a great DJ. Add the Shazam app (aka the best damn thing ever) to the equation and it’s a great way to find music.
Andhim recently did an Australian tour and I had the pleasure of seeing one of their sets (it was off the hook). This is one of the tracks I shazamed from their set. Will post more from the set in due course.
Been meaning to post this one for a while now.
I saw Teenage Mutants play last summer in London after having been introduced to his music by one of my friends. It was only by chance that we had found out he was playing, the club promoter had done a pretty shitty job and there were only about 15 people in the club (poor Teenage Mutants). Despite such a small crowd though, the dude still played a fucking killer set – putting himself up there as one of my favourite DJs. Having been following him on social media since, it looks like he’s really driving the crowds now, which is awesome.
Also – shout out to Purple Disco Machine, “My House” was another of my summer jams last year, these two together are awesome.

I’ve been listening to the new Kyla La Grange album this past week and have been really enjoying it. Some tracks are growers, so it’s definitely worth giving it a good few plays to really get into it. You can actually stream 10 of the 14 tracks on her SoundCloud (link below), but do check out the other four because they’re some of my favourite ones.
The Knife is the second single released from the album and it’s one of the more accessible tracks – something you can play and instantly like. On the surface it’s a real summery track (gotta love those steel drums), however when you listen closer to the words it feels a lot more dark and sinister.
Whenever I listen to it I can’t help but imagine that if there was an apocalypse movie set in the Caribbean, this would be part of the soundtrack. The Knife would be the track that marked the start of the apocalypse, with the 50 second mark being the moment when paradise turns to chaos. Not a bad track to die to I guess.
