Who cares if it’s winter. Bring me back to the sunshine please. I’ve been freezing ever since I returned to the states and that’s in the mild climate of San Francisco. Above is a pic I snapped in Thailand. Since there’s no way to get back there, I’ll have to settle for a mental return trip which helps with this track here from Cajoline.

Cajoline, from Paris, is new to the scene. This is their first released track. If this is what we have in store I see a bright future for Cajoline. This certainly reminds me musically of Perseus or Monitor 66. Enjoy!

Ice Wharf

Eh it’s Monday so why not get into some easy listening electronic music. I just got done checking out Southern Shores’ new album, New World I happened to come across a remix they did of a Philly based band that makes self described sedative wave/smooth-fi.

Work Drugs is their name. I’ve been a casual fan of both for some time now. Work Drugs makes music specifically for dancing, boating, yachting, sexting, and living which sounds like a good fit for a Southern Shores remix who tend to creates sounds that make you think of twirling your toes in the sand on some idyllic tropical coastline. Eassssy listenin indeed…

Blue Skies

“Cadillac is an Australian luxury vehicle marque signed to Future Classic. If you like guitar solos, slow mo piano jams and the sounds of baleric, disco, pop and rock then we might have just the vehicle for you.” This is a disco happy remix fit for a Friday by Ray Mang. Just a happy tune to send you on your happy way. After all, the weekend is here.

“Introducing Reflex… Born and bred under the scorching sun of Southern France, André Dalcan and Ludmila Cassar are a pairing both inside and outside the studio. Together they produce and perform as REFLEX. André is an established French DJ boasting a consistently solid tour diary and a rising international profile, with years of production experience under his belt. Ludmila (or Lud for short) is a gifted singer and songwriter with a refined ear for melodies and great hooks, as much at ease behind keyboards as on the bass. Quite simply, Reflex makes quality pop music to die for that translates perfectly to the stage for their energetic live shows infused with a rock attitude.

Rock? Remember they’re Frenchies…

Don’t get them wrong though, we’re talking about funky electro-disco here, with shades of balearic (the sand, the sea, the sky and the sun of their natural habitat) and even indie (‘I may be hot, but I’m no bimbo…’). Set over cascades of vintage synths, head-spinning arpeggios, fat analog basslines and 808 claps, the Eighties are never far away, but this is no revival as the duo keep their eyes firmly focused on the future. With choruses that evoke memories of a carefree past, their songs fill your heart and mind with feelgood vibes and don’t let go”
