Frankles Monthly Mix #3

Monthly Mix It's time for a new series of posts on Frankles where I share my running monthly-ish playlists that I build on Spotify (and sometimes SoundCloud) as I find predominantly new music. If you take a look through my profile on either service, you'll see groups of similarly named playlists. You can see a … Continue reading Frankles Monthly Mix #3

New rule: If jackLNDN posts anything for free download, for example, his mix for Deep House London, it will wind up here on a subsequent Friday. I probably didn't need to say that, given the five or so FFF's with Jack's name on them, but there it is all the same. His newest mix covers … Continue reading frankles free fridays

First up we have Four Tet's two-hour contribution to Marcel Dettman's Dekmantel podcast. If you've listened to Four Tet before, you'll already know to expect a wide range of music, from "world music" to house to techno to god, who really knows where some of his stuff comes from. He's a question mark, but he's … Continue reading frankles free fridays

My good friend and all-around beacon of positive energy, Chris, is headed to Shambhala next weekend, where many such beacons have gone, and should go. He asked my advice on shows he should see at the festival in British Columbia, and at first I was flattered that he'd asked. After reviewing the line-up, and checking … Continue reading frankles free fridays

Big Gigantic's Winter Vibes mix was a welcome influx of new and old jams and remixes to break up the monotony of a shitty and cold season. Their new Summer Vibes Mix is no different, except that it's just welcome. I'm from Minnesota, and warm weather never quite gets the chance to be monotonous. It's … Continue reading frankles free fridays

Tried as I might, I couldn't track down a legitimate copy of Above & Beyond's "Sun and Moon" to share with the world today. That song has had a bit of a stranglehold on my thoughts this week, and I guess I figured if I could get it out into the world, that it would … Continue reading frankles free fridays

If you haven't caught a Duke Dumont show, you are missing out. The next chance you get to see him play, make it a priority. In the meantime, fill your ears with the sweet sounds of house reminiscent of the 90's heyday of the genre. The past couple years have been a second coming of … Continue reading frankles free fridays

Rustie: Green Language

Sophomore albums are often a toss-up, especially for somebody so quickly met with as much success as Rustie, a break-out album followed by a landmark BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix and even a summer mixtape for NPR. Green Language may be more subdued than Glass Swords, but it also feels more organized, somehow more deliberate. … Continue reading Rustie: Green Language

Break Science dropped a little golden nugget yesterday with an unlikely mash-up (most of the good ones are) blending the laid back, slow jam of Kendrick Lamar's "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe" with the even more laid back, slow jam of Tycho's "Take a Walk." The result is a truly surreal swaying rhythm, with the two … Continue reading frankles free fridays

Sunday Sounds: Duke Dumont

My introduction to Duke Dumont came in the week or so leading up to Coachella earlier this year. His name appeared on several lists of “Can’t Miss Artists” or performers you may not know about, but should. He fit perfectly into both categories. Duke Dumont’s tutelage came under the watchful eye (and talented ears) of … Continue reading Sunday Sounds: Duke Dumont
