Bongiovanni “Games” ft. Tom Lemann (Maison Giuseppe)

The Munich based Maison Giuseppe label has just re-released a couple of jewels from two young artists who are Montreal ex-pats: Bongiovanni & Tom Lemann. “Games” originally came out in 2013 but has re-surfaced the past couple of weeks. I’m a huge fan of the incredible soulful voice of Tom Lemann, which we …

Future Classic: Azakel “New Romance” & “Chronophobia”

I discovered Azekel, an up and coming East London-based artist, a few months ago with his song called “New Romance” and the hypnotic music video that accompanied it. I pretty much instantly fell in love with his sound, a nice blend of R&B pop with crisp beats, heavy bass and …

Future Classic: SELA “Men Have Secrets, But No Mystery”

It’s been awhile since I found some music that had that dreamy vibe that I’m pretty much always looking for. The title is just so relevant to me: Men Have Secrets, But No Mystery. The beats of SELA put me in a dream and the textures are full with pure and innocent energy. This little piece of magic makes …

Future Classic: Gonjasufi “MU.ZZ.LE”

This album brings me back to my teenage years because it reminds me of classic rock records mixed up with a weird mystic vibe of a shaman channeling me. A lot of people don’t know that I’m a huge fan of The Doors. Well, Jim Morrisson, their leader has always said that …

Future Classic: Sonnymoon “2012 EP”

Its weird because when I discovered this group it was when they release a cover of a “Houstanlavagas” by Drake. And people who know me personally know that I’m not the biggest fan of the guy, in fact I make fun of him all the time. But Sonnymoon did an …

Lianne La Havas “Forget” (Shlohmo remix)

Shlohmo did a great remix of “Forget” by the British Soul singer Lianne La Havas. This young lady will drop an album at the end of 2012 and she reminds me of Andreya Triana a little because of her sweet voice and her lovely accent. Very cool thing is that she …

Dudley Perkins “Interplanetary Peace Talks 2012 A.U.” (Documentary)
