April: Desert Island Discs

Being that Summer is pretty much here, and the inspo behind our Summer Collection is all things shipwrecked, we thought we’d put together our very own edition of Desert Island Discs. So here it is, a difinitive list of our most perfect tunes for summer, that we wouldn’t mind being marooned with… Leave a comment below to let us know what tunes would be at the top of your own Desert Island Discs playlist.

1. Kendrick Lemar – Untitled Unmastered

This unexpected release of demos from the messiah that is Kendrick, just feels like an all around treat.

 

71HFGW5l4TL._SL1027_

2. Van Morrison – Astral Weeks

The first fully-fledge solo album by Morrisson, still sounds as hypnotic as when we first ever heard it.

 

Jay-Z-The-Black-Album

3. Jay Z – The Black Album

So ok the retirement didn’t last long, but Jay Z’s so called ‘farewell album’ still kicks a punch.

 

DumDum_TooTrue_cover

4. Dum Dum Girls – Too True

Dreamy female vocals and guitar reverb make this the perfect girl power album for summer.

 

4771c8e8

5. Grimes – Visions

We find Grimes’ weird original gonzo pop just totally intriguing and addictive.

 

1035x1035-nirvana-1800-1397054711

6. Nirvana – MTV Unplugged in New York

Recorded only 4 months before Kobain’s death, this MTV live performance awkwardness and intimacy make it close to our hearts.

 

91dU-8hB-ZL._SL1500_

7. FKA Twigs – LP1

This masterclass in sexual angst sees FKA Twgs laid bare through personal lyrics, whilst still being undeniably catchy

 

Jamiexx-InColour

8. Jamie xx – In Colour

With signature steel pan sounds, this nostalgic album is the perfect summer banger.

 

action-bronson-mr-wonderful

9. Action Bronson – Mr Wonderful

No-nonsense hip hop from Action Bronson.

 

bobmlegend

10. Bob Marley – Legend

Full of universal soul and Jamaican rhythm, a true classic.

February: Say it how you mean it this Valentines

So let’s be honest, Valentines Day is a total hassle! But hey, we are not totally devoid of human emotion and it is always good to tell someone you love that you know… they’re not too bad. So when looking for the perfect V Day card, we vote to cut the soppy crap and just have fun with it. So if you aren’t that great with words, or just need a bit of V Day inspiration, here are some of our favourites that we found out there…

November: Winter Mood Boosters with DJ Barely Legal

Name: Chloe Robinson AKA DJ Barely Legal

Occupation: DJ

Mission in life: To enjoy myself as much as possible, keep improving as a person, spread the love and have enough money so me and my friends can just keep having fun forever and ever and ever.

When did you start DJing? I started teaching myself how to mix 4 years ago, two years after moving to London. I was constantly listening to Rinse FM back then and I had a few key DJs who I looked up to: Ben UFO, Oneman, Plastician, Joy Orbison and Jackmaster.

Describe your sound? Gun finger music

Best moment of your career so far? I got to play the set between Django Django and Caribou this year on the main stage at Field Day. Being personally requested by Four Tet 3 years ago to play his warehouse project was a big one for me so soon into my career!

Guilty pleasure song? Jamiroquai – Space Cowboy (David Morales Classic Club Remix)

Top 3 tunes on you radar right now?

Ivy Lab – Hiya ft. Havelock

Dub Phizix – Dummeh

Martyn – Vancouver (Scratcha DVA dub)
