Hufschlag&Braun’s “Lovetape” on The Vly House Radio!

Part 2 w/ Hufschlag&Braun

For this week’s show we had very special guests from Cologne: Carlos Hufschlag and Patrick Braun, better known as Hufschlag&Braun. The young duo has been making quite a name for themselves after being picked up by longtime Kompakt member Tobias Thomas and playing at Cologne’s infamous C/O Pop Festival. I am proud to welcome their first ever DJ set titled “Lovetape,” which is really making me wish for a good party outside in warmer weather. The last track (which seems like some type of cover of Superpitcher’s “Country Boy”) is a world premiere and won’t be released for some time. All I can say is that it’s phenomenal. Thanks for the mix! Enjoy.

Burial’s New EP “Kindred” Is Blowing Minds, Everywhere

Simply put, Burial’s latest EP is stunning. I’m not going to attempt to use grand metaphors to describe the types of cityscapes Burial conjures up. Instead, I’ll just let you know that the blogosphere has exploded in praise for the tracks. I haven’t seen people this excited for quite some time. It’s that good.

Start Your Weekend With A1 Bassline

I unfortunately won’t be making it out this weekend, but at least my ears can have a party of their own. Lately, I’ve really been getting into A1 Bassline, the UK’s solution to the perfect balance of all that is good: bass, garage, techno and house. Here’s some of my favorites:

Why Do You
Stabs (Deadline Mix)
Lumps (Techological)

Best New Music: John Talabot’s “Fin”

Barcelona native John Talabot has just released his first full-length album on Permanent Vacation. In all honesty, I’m a little too worn out to write up a full review, but here’s what I must say. Talabot’s mix of deep-indie-house grooves along for an emotional journey reminiscent of summer dreams (nearing Caribou-like synthy electro-pop), yet steadily rhythmic, staying around 112 beats-per-minute. Talabot even teamed up with label mate and personal favorite of mine Pional. It’s a beautiful collection of songs that already has me dying for warmer days.
