The Guestlist was a weekly music podcast presented by Benjamin Berry of the electronic band Fear of Tigers. You’ll be hard pressed to find them anywhere online now but they were an incredible intro into some fantastic music. The above is an excerpt of a song I requested being played. To quote Electronic Rumours:
"Even by the time it hit the internet mid-last year it was already a year old, now over twelve months later it’s out, and sounding fresher than ever. Cordova is the meeting of U-Tern (Vaughn Oliver, making massive waves this year as one half of Oliver themed double act Oliver) and his buddy AJK, with Roxy on vocals, and Paradigm is so good it made it into the top five in our twenty best songs… It’s a massive slice of Dreamwave boogie with husky vocals and Sci-Fi vocoding. Nearly two years after it’s creation it hold up and kicks it’s contemporaries arses!”
Saturated basslines and vintage electronics to glowing harmonics and breathing vocals - BLDPs third release continues the tradition - New York synths, thick, off-kilter beats and Lush Parisian melodies.
This is amazingly profound. Words cannot express what this video means to me. It has inspired me, it perfectly portrayed how I always felt about life but could not express with words.
When I watched the movie – yes, it was good, but this… it’s like the whole movie was filmed just for the purpose of this music video. And Fred Falke, ahh… the video would not be the same without the nu-disco sound of Aurora – it’s a synergy.
This was not entertainment – this was an experience, a journey through the relationships between people, their values, emotions and feelings… You have managed to capture the essence of life, my friend, Hugo RedRose.
Perfect editing, original and felicitous contribution - you are an artist, and this is a masterpiece. Thank you for making this and sharing it with us.

I love sharing music I appreciate. I don’t do album’s, I do individual songs. Quality over quantity forever & always. I don’t tend to share enough (given it’s such a personal thing), unless I notice someone with similar tastes.
I’m definitely not tied down to any genre but am very much swayed by Nu-Disco/Indie Dance, and French House. Songs with vocals, long builds, complex break downs… that make you want to dance either on the inside or out. Although some of the above don’t really fit that description, they are a few choice songs of the moment. I’d suggest listening to the set hereon soundcloud if you’re interested.
Otherwise just check out the dancing from 2:50 in the above clip from the Flight Facilities… on loop. Not to mention the sign off.
Featuring Jake Gyllenhaal as a disturbed killing machine who chases his victims up fire escapes, into back alleys, and through strip clubs before he violently slays them.
Breakdown: Dance, don’t murder. Long answer: He kills people who dance because he can’t or won’t dance himself. At the end hes got the ‘murder-moves’ (energy that needs to go somewhere). He’s better off dancing. The song at the start is ‘America’. Now view full screen in HD.
Stephan Kinsella is interviewed on Houston’s Public Affairs Public Access Live program, with host David Hutzelman about Intellectual Property. Here he discusses the music industry’s business model, as well as artists, authors, musicians and publishers.
Working on the vague theme of ‘love' this is probably best viewed from the page, not your dash. Describing music is generally pretty hard. However, I really enjoy sharing songs I like. * Indicates a film-clip, otherwise it’s just audio. Youtube is easier to embed than soundcloud. The below songs are a mix of different genres that even I find hard to categorize; indie-dance, chillwave, house, disco-house, luvstep and who knows what other genres get made up. I hope you enjoy.
*A great film clip which matches the music pretty perfectly.
 | No Guns And Horses, Just Make Love by Ellie Goulding, Daft Punk & Monsieur Adi
"No stranger to sophisticated remix work, producer Monsieur Adi recently created a mashup between his rendition of Ellie Goulding’s "Guns And Horses" and Daft Punk’s "Make Love". As usual, Adi utilizes electrifying strings arrangements and couples them with the British songstress’s soothing voice and adds a little mellow electronica to the blend."
Click the bold for the soundcloud link. A real great smooth song, chill’d but uplifting disco house.
 | Love on a Real Train (SymbolOne remix) by Tangerine Dream
*Another fine video here. A real classic.
 | I Love U So (TROWA Remix) by Cassius
A different kind of dubstep. Luvstep.
 | Make Love Tonight (Lifelike Re-Edit) by Roman d’Amour
French house. Lifelike turns things to gold.
 | Cosmic Love (Short Club Remix) by Florence and the Machine
Mellow, but builds… beautiful. A song hard not to fall in love with, maybe a cosmic love then. Wonderful Florence and the Machine track that with this wonderful remix makes me want to love the whole cosmos.
This is a chilled mixtape I made for what I think were the best songs of last year with that vibe. I enjoy sharing music, so feedback (good or bad) is always welcome! If you think I missed anything, speak up!
Perfect tumblr music haha. Tracklist is available here. Free download too.
