A brand new SEVEN IN THE MIX for a brand new week!
Seven splendid strokes I played on repeat these past days
Seven towering tracks to feed body and soul all week long
Turn up the volume! Music is the dope! Here’s the stuff!
1/ ‘Scarlet Fever’ by SKYE WALLACE (Toronto, Canada)
The passionate Canadian singer/songwriter, blessed with a dazzling voice, explodes on
her new red-hot single. An irresistible inflammable rocker with a punky edge. A top stroke from her new album, planned for a 2018 release. Hear more of her work here on Spotify

2/ ‘Tourist’ by DREAM NAILS (London, UK)
These self-proclaimed ‘DIY punk witches’ energize your body, make your blood stream much faster and mess up sexist, male pigs’ heads. I’m damn sure the wonderful, late
Poly Sterene would be proud! Oh Bondage! Up Yours! Debut EP out 27th October.

3/ ‘Hospitality’ by TWO CARTOONS (Auckland, New Zealand)
This thumping stormer will make you smile, scream, jump and roll over all day long.
It’s just impossible to resist this glam rock charged bang. A king-sized, electrical
cut from the duo’s upcoming EP ‘The Great British Hangover’ out 18th November…

4/ ‘Vitamins’ by DANCEHALL (London, UK)
The combination of vicious guitar havoc derailing at times, a merciless rhythm section and the angry vox fueled chorus turns this schizophrenic blast into a manic knockout. Score!

5/ ‘Run’ by KOY (Bergen/Berlin)
Singer/composer Victoria Trunova aka KOY describes her work as ‘electronic mermaid witchcraft’. I agree totally. Her absorptive electro panache has a voodoo like feel. It will make many run to the dance floor. Saturday night fever with a gloomy edge! Love it!

6/ ‘Bulldogs’ by GARDENBACK (Manchester, UK)
This boiling trio really likes to soundtrack their ‘ambition, frustration and ultimately disappointment‘ with pumped up and barbed wire electricity. ‘Bulldogs‘ is an angry
and furious uppercut on speed. Trust me, it will trigger all of your hungry senses.

7/ ‘Blood Song’ by MANALISHIES (Finland)
Founder Paltsa-Kai Salama started this band originally as a solo project but it evolved into a group effort. Their first impressive achievement ‘Blood Song‘ is a mind-boggling 10-minute journey build around a repetitive, hypnotic bass riff injected now and then with some far-out saxophone, distorted guitars and adventurous improvisation. Highly compelling stuff!
