I’m not sure if I’ve posted this before, but even if I have, for Throwback Thursday, I give you the irrepressible Flux Pavilion. His remix of Jamiroquai’s classic “Blue Skies” is massive, melancholic and triumphant in its sorrows. Just what you need for mid-January.
For your Friday review, Flux Pavilion dropped a track yesterday that definitely needed some more attention. Put it into your faceholes as quickly as possible. The combination of the classic Flux Pavilion sound with some gorgeous vocals from Rosie Oddie shows that the upcoming Freeway EP (that you can pre-order here: bgbe.at/1b6XfPT) will continue the “Giant made of clouds” feel that Flux Pavilion has become famous the world over for. The triumphant feeling FP is known for is heavily apparent here, and I can’t wait to hear the rest of the EP. Get at the track right below.
In what will be a monthly exercise I’ve put together a collection of tracks from various artists that released awesome ish during the month of January. Some big names, some small names, some chill, some sexy, some that will make you want to rage. Shout out to all the artists that made it on the list and I look forward to the next 11 months of awesome playlists for you guys. Not too much to say other than, comment if any tracks really catch your eyes, or if you don’t understand why one made the list while another didn’t.
So, instead of jerking around with the words best or top, I’ve decided to collect 12 pretty excellent tracks that meant something to me in 2012. Quality tunes I’m not sure got out into the greater internets but definitely deserved to, and Soundcloud gave me access to all of them. So, here they are, in no particular order.
This is what I hope all pop music sounds like eventually. I’ll just leave it at that. TheFatRat is what I hope all of Z100 sounds like by 2014.
Example is one of the artists that my general adoration for all things Flux Pavillion has led me to. A fantastic vocalist that links up with all of the right bass-related minds across the pond, this collab with Flux is a cadanced march of awesome. The triumphant wobble of Flux with the strongly accented & attituded vocals makes for a righteously good time, amplified by the excellent drum work throughout, especially two minutes in when it explodes into further sweetness.
