Future Classic: Mr. Beatnick “Ice Cream Strut”

Mr. Beatnick is one of our favourite electronic producers of the past few years. One who always delivers top-shelf material, yet he is still a pretty underrated artist. He has some killer releases on the Don’t Be Afraid label as well as a radio show on NTS. A very versatile …

Future Classic: Jackson 5 “Dancing Machine” (Daniel Crawford remix + Kon edit)

I can’t help but expect the worst when I see “remix” written close to a track of this magnitude… I mean, how can you top the original? It’s always a hard task trying to revise a classic song, especially when you change the mood from the original completely. Los Angeles …

Fantastic debut LP from Collucutor, the new jazz ensemble led by Tamar Osborn on sax and alto flute with production duties handled by Emanative. You might have heard one track on our last MIMS monthly radio show (link) but frankly the LP is so great that we had to also …

Future Classic: Photay “Photay” (Astro Nautico Records)

We’re going to go ahead and state the obvious: Photay‘s new EP on Astro Nautico is easily one of the best releases of 2014 when it comes to instrumental / “beat” music. (Whatever we’re calling it these days) A release like this is a very welcome thing at a time …

Future Classic: Emeson “Bespoke EP”

It’s really unusual for me to play two tracks from the same project on the “Fresh Taste” show, especially when it comes from a 5 song EP! Emeson made me do it with his fabulous new project named “Bespoke EP“. This beautiful release seamlessly fuses different styles such as soul, jazz …

Future Classic: Dornik “On My Mind”
