Polyphonic – MAYN

Rules?  Fuck ’em!

Generally – as a rule – the tracks you find on this playlist don’t have lyrics – the reasoning being that if you’re writing – you don’t need someone else’s words taking up cognitive space.  But it’s not really a rule – it’s more of a “best practice” – at the end of the day, tracks make this list if I’m able to write to them and wow – look at me typing…

Eat Me Alice – ElectroMush

With “Eat Me Alice,” ElectroMush delivers an ear catching, enigmatic, and thought-provoking record that seeks to atone for self-doubt in regard to sanity and normalcy in a crazy world… sort of.

The intensity of resonances – Matt Wilier

This little stream of resonances is crafted with a gentle ostinato that flows deep inside. Enjoy!

Binary Warriors – Humn_Error

Sometimes it’s just so fucking bleak – the past, the present, the future – nothing’s right – everything’s wasted, me included. At times like this – I need something simple, something recognizable, something tangible that I can attach myself to – I need sonic salve.

While the organic opening to this track is rather foreboding, the subsequent six minutes of solid 4 by 4 electronic beats feels relentlessly optimistic…

La Dispute – Yann Tiersen

The song of the week is one of Tiersen’s darkest tracks: “La Dispute”. He says this piece “is about extreme violence, blood, death and the strange state of shock you feel in the moments after something horrible has happened”, however people might think “it’s a romantic thing to listen to on a date”.

MATAFAKA – Unknown Brain

The track begins and I am already chilled out by the chorus. The rap begins and suddenly there is swag all over my face and the entire room. And the first drop keeps you clinging on to the goosebumps…

Gold – Dash Berlin, DBSTF

I don’t know how this track went unnoticed by the masses… But I am glad you are here to experience this piece of musical luxury.

Elixir – Tourist

Perhaps my favourite artist of all time? Maybe? It is usually the answer I tend to give when I get asked that eternally annoying question.

Bloodflow – Grandbrothers

Whilst combining acoustic elements like pianos and vocals is far from a new thing in electronic music, Grandbrothers do it with such finesse and balance that it feels like an entirely new breed.

Transformation – The Cinematic Orchestra

“The Cinematic Orchestra” created a beautiful musical scenery that gives us wings to fly with them. This composition really captures the freedom and vastness of the landscape, and the dramatic struggle for survival… but most of all, it fulfils us with hope.

Art of Tones – Cameo Maceo

Frappé records take us on a ‘Roller Coaster’ ride of French electronic music…

Glitterbox DJ Natasha Kitty Katt ‘Time and Time Again’ delivers a quality remix…

B – Torri in Sabina Ambient Remix – Non-Functional Harmony

You know those days where for some god unknown reason you wake up and you just know it’s all going to be shit. And sure – we manifest what we project and all that good mental wellbeing stuff but sometimes – no matter how well I rig my defences and man the battlements with productivity tips and inspirational emails – I fail – and so despair climbs over the parapet like an assassin in a medieval movie and quietly slips its blade into my hope…

Yuksek ft Confidence Man – Gorgeous (Extended Disco Mix)

Popular French DJ, Yuksek delivers with the hip “Gorgeous”. This cool funky forward-thinking disco track captivates with the catchy hook and hypnotic vocals of Australian band, Confidence Man..

Ain’t No Love, Ain’t No Starshine – Chuggin Edits

Chuggin Edits is back with a seriously catchy re-edit, familiar to many from the sub sub track ‘Ain’t no Use’ recently picked up by Craig Charles and has been used as the intro to his Funk & Soul show on BBC 6 music…

Amnésie – Nhyx

‘What a lot of people forget is that Zephra has done this before…’

Canada – Desmond Cheese

A song best explained in sounds. Sounds that feel almost familiar – but not quite – like a foggy memory…

Linked – Bonobo

This vast lake, tranquil beneath a terminal sky. Lying, floating amidst a wash of mirrored stars, drifting peacefully as the atmosphere burns…

The Escapist’s Handbook, Vol. I – The Expanse 📽

Let’s cut straight to the point right from the get-go: The Expanse is brilliant.

Shift – Afrosamuraiist

Everything hurts; my body feels like it’s not my own, and staring out through eyes that belong to somebody else, I see that it doesn’t look like my own, either…

Into Clouds – Luttrell

It washes over me, seeping into every fibre of my being, immersing each and every atom to the point where I don’t know where I stop and it begins…

Underwater – RÜFÜS DU SOL

‘Floating, weightless, the pressure holding me as though it were a vice. I hung in stasis for what can only have been eternity, somewhere between sleep and death…’

Sirens – Icarus

‘I’d been so long in this wilderness that I thought I’d never see another soul again. One by one our tiny band had fallen apart, lost along the way or through a loss of heart, until only I remained…’

Girl On Fire – Medii

We felt the fire before we saw it. The heat stung our eyes, grasping at our throats, suffocating us.

Stand By Me – Medii, Kristen Olsson

For me, a winning song is one that combines atmosphere and power to deliver the listener to an entirely new world. One that energises them, motivates them, and refreshes them.

Toro Y Moi – Still Sound

Need more house cleaning music? Well I hope you have on comfortable shoes! Toro Y Moi’s Still Sound is exactly what you’re looking for. The groovy bass line and guitar riffs are sure to bring out your inner dance machine

Las Claves – Dr. Fuego

We’re in Barcelona, dodging terrorists and finding our work groove.  You’re probably just starting or about to start school again – the evil spectre of Essays looms over you.

This track is going to help – here’s the previous write up:

Las Claves – Dr. Fuego

Alright, we know – it’s summer and you’re all out on break earning dough in shitty jobs or heading south to the good weather – (or maybe even running north – it was 108 here in LA today!)

Attack At Titan – Gareth Wild

As a techno DJ I’m constantly on the hunt for new gems to play at my upcoming gigs. Right before my upcoming label party here in Berlin I stumbled onto “Attack At Titan” from EarToGround founder Gareth Wild. 

Good Voodoo – Kiki (VisionQuest Remix)

I first heard this song yesterday as I was running through Hasenheide, a huge park by my house. I had already been running (ok, you got me, jogging) for a solid 15 minutes and therefore reaching my tap out point. And then, like a gift from the gods, this magical song started pumping into my ears like a seductive siren, causing me to tap into a dormant energy source I wasn’t even aware existed

A Jealous Heart Never Rests – The Black Madonna

As a woman who loves techno, I feel it is my personal duty to draw attention to all the incredible techno DJs out there who also happen to be ladies. That’s why occasionally I’ll use this playlist as my platform (hey, everyone needs a soapbox, ok?)

Dishes & Wishes – Roman Flügel

How perfect that this track is named “Dishes & Wishes”. If I had to rank all my household chores from best to worst, washing dishes would always be at the top of my list. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that my legs are free to dance to whatever Deep House track is currently bumping out of my laptop speakers.  

Did You Ever – Daniela La Luz

On Saturday night I arrived to Griessmühle; formerly a pasta factory, and presently one of my favorite clubs in Berlin. Not only is it just a few U-bahn stops from my house, but it’s a bit off the beaten path (and a bit gritty), which means it doesn’t attract a lot of tourists.

Distant Light – Max Cooper

Max Cooper creates “highly produced, emotional electronica made for both the dance floor and sit-down concerts.” When I hear this song I am immediately reminded of the deep, introspective journey that music sometimes takes me on. There I am in the middle of dance floor, surrounded by gyrating strangers and dancing lights. I close my eyes and go on a mini-vacation in my mind.

Set My Mind (Luttrell Remix) – Way Out West

Throwing house parties in Berlin, if done right, can actually yield a profit (and no I am not talking about charging your friends upon entry.) In Germany, you can bring your empty glass bottles to your nearest grocery store and get money back. Today, I proudly carried a giant bag of jangly bottles to my corner market and received a whopping 3.18 eur. Woo!

Voyeur – The M Machine

Because this song is a bit slower than the other tracks on the playlist, it’s great for getting in the zone (or pretending your life is in slow motion.) It’s a dreamy trip to the moon without ever having to leave the comfort of your room. 

Virile – The Blaze

When I first heard this mesmerizing track, I was in a daze…and then I saw the video…my god, I love when music touches me both sonically and visually. The video begins innocuously enough with two freshly dressed dudes having a friendly night in, listening to good music, practicing dance moves, and smoking a joint.

It’s Ok (feat. Patricia Edwards) – Ernesto Blaque

The lyrics to It’s Ok were written by Patricia Edwards way before I ever made the song. I liked it when I first heard the lyrics and then decided to write music to it. Since Patricia is based in New York and I am based In Johannesburg, I wanted the song to have both an American as well as a South African feel to it. I also wanted the song to fit in any club around the world. Hope you enjoy!

Grey – Kölsch

In any decent DJ playlist there is always at least one track that stands out. For me Kölsch’s, Grey epitomises such a record. It’s upfront, it doesn’t stand about, it hits the spot and clears off in under 5 mins leaving us wanting more. It’s my favourite tune of the now and now is all we have.  

Rinse Repeat – Thrupence

Much like the repetitive nature of cleaning your living space, the chimed plucks in the beginning of the track repeat throughout and takes the listener on circular adventure as added layers build on this theme with an array of syncopated break beats, futuristic synths, and a driving bass line.

Rock Solid (Mickey Remix) – Rambla Boys

The other night I had the arduous task of putting together an IKEA bed that I had bought secondhand. The task was arduous because 1. There were no instructions, 2. I had never put together a bed before.

House Work – Jax Jones

“I call it house work, ’cause it’s like work. But Ima throw shade if I don’t get paid for this house work.” Man, I can relate. I don’t just dance; I dance like it’s my motha fuckin’ job. 

Monday – Fur Coat

Ever since I stumbled upon this song, I can’t stop listening it. It’s so great, I don’t even want to dilute it with my fanciful analogies. Just do yourself a favor and listen to it….really, really loud. 

Hans is Driving – Vitalic (feat. Miss Kittin)

If I could have one wish, it would be that this song would start playing as soon as I enter a lucid dream (that beautiful space between waking life and deep slumber when my body is completely relaxed and weightless but I still complete control over my thoughts and movements.)

Oceans – CAZZETTE (feat. Leo Stannard)

You can find out more about CAZZETTE here: LIKE THIS TRACK?

What May Come – Sweet Anomaly & Dugong

I really love this remix of Dugong’s “What May Come” because Öona Dahl really transformed the original song into something completely different. Bringing it straight to the dance floor she enhances it with dream like soundscapes but still brings enough punch to keep it super friendly for dancing.  She stays true to herself as an artist while still respecting the original version. It’s a truly perfect remix and you can tell a lot of passion and heart went into it.

Klaus Your Eyes – Kotelett & Zadak, Kuriose Naturale

The world is a scary place. Sometimes it’s necessary to disengage, unplug, and just let your thoughts wander. When I leave the dance floor, I feel the same way that I imagine it feels to leave a really great therapy session.  

Attention – David Jach

I now know why Berliners spend every single second of the warm weather outdoors. When you only have one month of real summer, you tend not to take it for granted. While I’m seriously looking forward to the sun setting at 9pm, rooftop bars, dining al fresco, boozy picnics with friends, and open air festivals, I’m also trying to appreciate the gray winter days.

Taubenblut – Dominik Eulberg

Eulberg is a fairly new artist to me. I actually “discovered” him (can you even call it that these days?) on my Spotify “Discover Weekly” playlist, go figure. Sometimes Spotify delivers some pretty random suggestions (guess I have an eclectic music taste) but this one was spot on. 

Hyperballad – Bjork

I have always enjoyed this song because it speaks of the strange rituals people use to maintain balance and happiness in their lives. There is a sense of secrecy attached, as these small routines take on a life of their own. 

It Is What it Is – Blood Orange

Blood Orange has been one of my recent favorite artists.  His ability to seamlessly blend different styles of music makes for a delightful sound.

Birds – Electrelane

Creativity often arises after experiencing love and the loss of it.  I appreciate this song about heartbreak because it balances vulnerability with a sense of pride.  The last full minute of the song is my favorite.

The Altruist – Saddles

Since moving to Phoenix, Arizona, I have been fortunate to meet lots of creative and inspiring people.  Saddles is an example of the local talent that motivates me to create. This song is from their newly released album, “ Yoke.”

Did You See the Words – Animal Collective

I have always appreciated Animal Collective.  I admire their songs as being packed with emotion and unique sounds.  Their music pushes me to experiment with my talents as they have with each of their albums. 

I Spit That – David Keno, Stage Rockers

The lyrics to this song are as follows “Sweet dolla’ tea from McDonald’s, I drink that. Super hot fire, I spit that. 2 & A Half Men, I watch that.” After a quick interweb research (thanks Google), I discovered that the vocals were pulled from this YouTube rap battle between SUPAHOTFIRE and B-Bone. Maybe SUPAHOTFIRE isn’t the best rapper, but he sure makes one hell of  a presence on this track. Can’t. stop. listening

Come On Now (Set It Off) – Tube & Berger, Juliet Sikora

When I hear the words “set it off” I immediately think of one of two things; the 90s crime action film featuring the Queen (Latifah) herself (if you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and get on that..right now) or else I think of the 1984 song by Strafe, “y’all wan’t this party started quickly, right?”

What I Might Do – Ben Pearce

There was once a time in my life where I was driving one hour to sit in a cubicle and proofread dog food labels for eight hours straight. When I wasn’t having long existential conversations with myself on the way home, I was listening to songs like this. After a few months of contemplation, the levy broke, I knew just what I had to do. I quit my job, bought a one way ticket to Berlin, and never looked back. 

My Head is A Jungle – Wankelmut and Emma Louise

Wankelmut means fickleness in German which is quite fitting considering I have musical ADD. Yes, that’s me, the “voracious song skipper.” This song however, keeps my head bobbing until the very end. If your house is a jun-gle, jun-gle, this song should help fix that.
