Three on a Thursday #116


Back after a week off, blessing your ears with bars, beats and a couple of lovely slices of chilled electronic nonsense …

Come on then, don’t just stand there.

It wouldn’t be a ToT without at least one track with a bit of a hip-hop edge to it, and this weeks candidate comes from the Young Black Teenagers, who aren’t black, and aren’t teenagers.

Oh how witty those early 90’s rappers were.

Aside from the slightly crass name, Tap the Bottle (Twist the Cap) is a proper bouncing hip-hop party number, with a big shout along chorous  in the vein of Jump Around. Now where’s that beer?

Like Air?

Heard of Bang Gang? (I hadn’t? …)

If so, wrap your ears round Starwalker, featuring Jean-Benoit Dunckel  from the forme and Bardi Johannsson from the latter. Losers Can Win is a spaced-out , glitter drenched downtempo slice of spaced out loveliness, as you’d expect.

(there’s a quality video at the band’s website, well worth a click imho)

Last one this week sticks in the slightly trippy electronica note, but this time from someone utterly new to me, Helfer.

I’ll admit, I did open the email fearing this was a new track by urban folksters, Hefner, but was pleasantly surprised by the chilled out housey vibe which lay within.

Designs does the hazy upbeat somewhere-in-a-festival-field-on-a-sunny-evening kinda vibe really quite nicely I reckon.
