I like: Underworld – Always Loved A Film | 音乐 Underworld – Always Loved A Film

Reading Time: < 1 minute

If you are used to Underworld’s earlier work pummeling your senses via a giant sound system like I am then this track will hopefully come as a pleasant surprise. It is a delightful piece of of downbeat electronica that would be right at home in a café in Ibiza.

I like: Stüssy x Stones Throw J Dilla documentary | 记录片 Stüssy x Stones Throw J Dilla

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Great documentary that Stone’s Throw and Stüssy did a while back about producer and DJ James Dewitt ‘J Dilla’ Yancey. What I was was interesting (but I guess not too surprising given Japan’s soft power and huge collection of vinyl junkies and producers) was the seminal role that Manhattan Records in Shibuya, Tokyo had in J Dilla’s rise to fame.

Manhattan Records is probably the best shop on the planet with some of the most savvy buyers who get the best house and hip-hop cuts. During my brief trip out to Tokyo I got half a dozen great records out there and could have bought a lot more but for my credit card was hammered and the excess baggage would kill me.

I like: The Glass – Four Floor Letter (Black Van Mix) | 音乐 The Glass – Four Floor Letter

Reading Time: < 1 minute

A great US | German production with synth sounds that reminded me of many of the tracks on New Order’s Substance anthology of their first dozen singles up to 1987.
