Paradise Circus – Massive Attack (Gui Boratto Remix)

25 08 2013

A Gui Borrato remix of a Massive Attack classic. Follow the eerie vocal line as it weaves its way through a tension-filled backdrop of pulsing bass lines and high-pitched synths. Minimalist with a not-so-minimalist impact.

John Coltrane – Central Park West

14 08 2013

Recorded in Atlantic Studios in the winter of 1960, Central Park West perfectly encapsulates a lazy meditative walk through Manhattan’s garden retreat. Coltrane’s saxophone slides sweetly through the accompaniment as if in birdsong, his melody a gentle caress on the ears. What strikes me most about Coltrane is his astounding musical intellect. This deceivingly simple song uses a modulatory cycle of ascending thirds – a technically complex structure that perfectly aids his poetic expression.

Jonas Mantey – Sie ist Schön

9 08 2013

For those who read the Artchive and realise that that tonight is the time. The weekend has come once again to explain what it is to enjoy music. So wherever you are heading just keep in mind that tonight will be divine. Don’t allow yourself to be confined but live life to the full, meet and greet all new potential people. Feel the rhythm, feel the beat and unleash onto the street sheer bliss. For this is when we are young and free and can be what we want to be. One bit of advice that I hope you will consider before you bundle out of your home, allow the music of Jonas Mantey to mesmersie and engulf you. Give in and allow it fill you to the brim, to surface undisturbed, to simmer. Then relinquish your insecruties, unshackle your inadequacies and enter the night for she is beautiful.

Isolee – Allowance

31 07 2013

On Saturday the 28th of July at round 7:35 am in Dalston, London, after a night of 1920’s dress, roulette table-ing, vodka martini’s and electro swing jives, I slumped and glided to the sound of Isolee’s “Allowance”. It has such measure, such grace, such balance, teetering and tormenting. The piano echoes, holding you, sustaining you, massaging your mind and your soul. You drift and drop to the non-stop melodic felony. Yet, there is an undercurrent of grit, a shutter sound that holds the piece together. When I heard this, I felt liberated, I felt unified, I felt at peace. So sit back and enjoy, if you ever need a post jam tune, this is the one.
